Teenager Underground by Bevan Boggenpoel

I ran the streets –

early to late

mischief –

never had to wait.

In its presence –

I was always found

many people –

were astound.

At my brutal –

violent behaviour

I was just –

a teenager.

I accumulated enemies –

instead of friends

too late for me –

to make amends.

I’m talking to you –

from here, underground

in a ditch, viciously killed –

I was found.

Confessions in Ink by Bevan Boggenpoel

This poetry collection addresses racism, oppression, love, hate, culture, politics, spirituality, humanity, education and growth. It brings together common themes of community and family values. You'll read about living in and being influenced by a broken society, and emotionally raw and personal experiences that heart-wrenchingly capture the loss of a parent and the ugliness of domestic violence.There are poems about the political struggles seen across the globe. Slavery and human rights issues, political crime, how it feels to be exiled and left a stranger in one's own homeland. Woven between these struggles and plight are the precious things we often take for granted. The earth, the dirt, water - the power and beauty of nature.
