The First Step – Temidayo Kelani

All inside me,
Battles, waste, things not of me.
In the morning,
Something is left of yester’s dusk

All inside me;
Different men with different men on their insides,
Creating a nameless, nocturnal beast
With several heads.

All inside me;
a debt I owe, that I postpone.
My gold, my throne – I must regain
The me and I that is myself.

All outside me:
Helping hands too far from reach,
For in the morning,
I tell no one of yester’s tale

About aloudqmu

Aloud is a monthly poetry and spoken word open mic night, and literary magazine. We are based in Glasgow University's Queen Margaret Union, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Here we wish to publish performance videos from our open mic nights, event updates, and the writing featured in our monthly Aloud Magazine, and some of the writing that didn't quite make the final cut.
