Pharaoh Manyou

Pharaoh ManyouI’m Manyou, 20 years old American/Nigerian with a senescent mind that’s surfeit with imagination.

What makes me special is my unique skills and talent I acquire from writing poetry and numerous accolades I have achieved during my high school years.

I have a number of awards from basketball such as most valuable player, best defensive player, player of the year, champion MVP and so on…

And my other field of American football awards such as year most valuable player, most improved player, and outstanding athlete.
It doesn’t just stop there, poetry is not just writing for me, it is me.. my world, my realm is my initial world to be honest and to be a good poet with such expertise comes not from luck but from thousands of hours of assiduous effort.

Who am I to Speak

By Pharaoh Manyou

Half-cocked discretion
Hydroplaning madness
Psychedelic questions
Deeply rooted answers
But who am I, who am I to speak
Derange disaster
Segregating slaves from masters
Useless, dilated double
Dealing helix
Silently secluded
Just to feel it, spitting out
Idiosyncratic habits
But who am I
Who am I to speak out loud?
Under the bludgeoning of chance
My head is bloody but unbowed
I spent a portion of torn out rib-cage trying and trying to shape the outcome
