POEM: Next Will Be You (By Brian Mwansa)

“Next will Be You” is a short Poem written by Brian Mwansa. Its a simple couplet written in aabb rhyme style with a very angry tone.

Next Will Be You

Suffering seems so sweet and good if somebody comes to your rescue
The woman is the cause though I know not how they teach in mosque
Sweeter than bitter, the fruit inviting cases in a queue
We tirelessly burn the candle for them, they can’t even say thank you!

Despite loving them, they abhor us to shame,
Should we try to confirm, they say we are jealous of them,
They pay us back with bitter Love,
Try sitting them down, they would rather starve!

Having family isn’t a consolation with a hidden meaning,
Some friends aren’t even worthy but they pay attention to our screaming.
Your very own blood can be worse than being hypocritical,
Some friends are just so concerned and analytical!

We run to them, but they aren’t worthy our leaning on them.
They pretend to be more than they really rather wreak as they claim
If that’s what you call ‘family’, you better let me alone,
I’ve seen hazardous and perilous dark ugly days that put me to scorn.

She pretends not to be a victim of love, yet she can’t let you go,
She’s selfish. I pray she won’t turn into a caring and dangerous foe,
Then hardly discern that men aren’t strong when they meet a godly genuine lady,
She that knows how to keep a man not only in bed,

This is also giving me head and heart aches,
My showing a better me is an easy life that hurts,
Powering love to the world and family are also forsaken facts,
How I carelessly condemn such godly satanic acts.

Writing touching poems and stories for her and them,
They heartlessly and ludicrously don’t appreciate your way to genuine fame,
Pondering whether writing about them is to show them true love,
I pray she turns not into a serpent or a harmful dove.

To be somebody’s wife is to sacrifice,
I sacrificed my whole being and it didn’t suffice.
I would arrest them fake famous families and friends if I was ‘the police’,
I would verily act in a way so amiss.

If having a beautiful lady as your wife is a cat and dog life,
Better is it to know your competitor, till you innocently get stubbed with a blunt knife,
A prudent wife is the Lord’s,
If women are serpents, men are unforgiving gods.

It’s true that love and life and are paired,
If there’s no life in love, the marriage can never be declared,
Feel fairly for me, I wanna feel for you,
If that’s not what you gonna do “next will be you”.

Poem Annotation & Quick Meaning

Man is always the weaker side of Love. Women are experts. 

Once a man falls in love, they become so blinded by it such that they forget to get along with norms of nature just to keep the woman they love, even if that means living a life of hardship.

Sweeter than bitter, the fruit inviting cases in a queue

We tirelessly burn the candle for them, they can’t even say thank you!

In most cases, especially these days women are easily getting in between family affairs causing divisions because at the end of the day each Man will take the side of the Woman(s) he love.

If having a beautiful lady as your wife is a cat and dog life,

Better is it to know your competitor, till you innocently get stubbed with a blunt knife,

 

 Its not always a bad thing, finding a God fearing and success oriented woman is a tripple blessing in life. Not only will she love you, but will all bring ideas that will help you both succeed. 

 A prudent wife is the Lord’s,
 
Brian also talks about friendship. Most people we honour with loyalty in the  name of friendship dont really pay us with with the same deed. They are easily waiting behind our backs for us to stumple so that the can stub us to finish us off.
 
Having family isn’t a consolation with a hidden meaning,
Some friends aren’t even worthy but they pay attention to our screaming.
Your very own blood can be worse than being hypocritical,
Some friends are just so concerned and analytical!
