Agony of a Poet

Each day takes us closer to the grave
But what's life without risk and risk without being brave
All I want is to be free; breaking the chains of being a slave
As I walk into the finest of nature; for such moments I do crave.

All I've ever wanted was to love and be loved
But my past keep bringing me more problems than I've ever solved
I can't really explain the kind of life that I'm living
It's like whenever I set my goals, the passion to move gets dissolved.

I've got a desire burning deep inside
I know what I want but others think it's pride
No one is willing to help except by their rules I must abide
Which means my life will go by whatever they decide

Life teaches us many things without having to pay fees
Sometimes I wish I can write all my frustrations in one piece
The war that takes place in my mind,  leaving my heart with no peace
Hoping for brighter days as the darkness do increase

Smile Mama Salone

Sometimes I wonder if sufferings are exactly what fortune brings
The struggles you've been through as your heart bleeds
You've seen wickedness take over the heart of your children
Selfishness and greed; the young has no respect for their kindred
To ourselves we ponder if there is any hope for tomorrow
Cause our minds are filled with negative thoughts and our hearts full  of sorrow
We live as if we are the last of our kind and there is non to follow
Only if we knew our days are numbered and our lives borrowed
I am sure you see us as a set on stage drama
We lack punctuation; no full stop, no comma
We perpetually bring you sadness that's why I miss your smile Mama
Unity, peace and love you've tried to teach us as your own
Yet we keep bringing sacrilege to thy humble throne
This saddens me for all l ever want to see is for you to smile Mama Salone.
