Smiles of Pain, A Poem By Liberian Teen Poet, Aloysius S. Harmon Jr
My body is like a vault of pains
Deeply sculptured With laughter
And unbearable sadness.
My heart may hop to the happy noise
of the street,
But my mind has been flown
And left alone in the backyard of unhappiness.
Wholly in my stunning face
Are wounds of hurtful laugh
Oozing out the blood of painful smiles.
My eyes, dripping salty fluids
But silence won’t make you believe.

Two Poems By Joshua James Onuh
Poetry is not always about the aesthetics of concrete poems and the symphony of rhymed verses. Sometimes, it is didactic. Other times, it documents the Afro-wits and wisdom passed down by our ancestors. This is what Joshua James Onuh does with his poetry. These two poems are simple and beautiful.

"...but sometimes, the sky breaks into dawn with the proclamation of
thunderclaps & gloomy downpours, instead of the gaiety of sunshine,
as if to say that it, too, is still learning the art of joyfulness."
