Here I am, looking for a blue colour,
The only key which can open that door
Behind which I may find the strength of hope,
Here I am, tired of this heavy coat!
This heavy coat breaking down my shoulders,
And turning my child days into nightmares,
Drawing lines on the face of a young one,
And watering thorns throughout my playground;
Here I am, looking for my horizon,
Where Skies and Earth kiss for the best season…
Here I am, walking on dust and ashes,
My feet are burnt owing to blind clashes…
Here I am, digging with my two bare hands
In the hard soil of these hot barren lands…
Here I am, striving to unearth your smile,
For it is the reason why I survive…
About the Author
My name is Théodore René Ndebi, born in Cameroon. I graduated in Banking Management. But what really makes me proud and happy is WRITING !!!!! I started writing around 1990. I write the most I can.
I mostly write for children’s future. As a child, I had always dreamt of a world where poor children and orphans could be happy as well. I have many unpublished collections in French: Chaque Jour Un Poème, Rêve D’un Soir, La Missive Du Petit Prince, Suis-Je Assez Bien Pour Toi… I’m also author of unpublished novels in French (Cierge Noir, Plus Violent Que L’amour, Les Fruits De La Tempête…). My first published novel; THE LAST GHOST/Son Of Struggle got published in 2013 by AuthorhouseUK; it appears in the LOS Angeles Times Festival Of Books Catalogue 2014 Page 8. Available online @ Amazon, Kindle, AuthorhouseUK, Barnes & Noble, Indie. I wrote numerous award winning texts. I am a Book Reviewer and Translator.
