Growing into relevance, was told to be humble
Some became god’s who felt they could have me crumbled
Tried to speak out but they had their ears muffled
“Give me a chance!” But they said, “Continue in your struggles!”
Life was heavy, so it felt and very scrambled
So encompassing was the weight, the best thing to do was to tumble
Got to the point it felt like, “Royal in the Rumble”
To the destitute, truly life is a jungle
Lacking the knowledge, with whom to mingle
Even when there was a shindig, there’s the heaviness of the shackles
With no one to look up to, life seemed to be in shambles
Life became boring, nothing ever seemed to tingle
Heeded the call to really enjoy being a single
Passed from one phase of life to another; then came the wrinkles
Became quite weird, sought how to toggle
Searched, searched and even searched on Google
Then, it became conspicuously bare, needless of the goggle
Now, it’s clearer; with whom shall I haggle?
Who shall listen, to whom shall I tell of my hustles?
Listen and hear how life is unfair with all its bustles
Just pay attention and learn how I was able to jostle
Hold your peace; just listen. Are you listening? Are you listening?
Oh! No one is listening but everyone wants to tackle
It’s alright! It’s to God I now owe my allegiance and with Him I must settle
Hopefully, He’ll lead my path to Seattle
Gladly driven in a Beetle
Then, there’ll be no cause to feel little
Aqua shall be cooked in a kettle
Would seem ordinary but won’t be a mere mettle
Shall eat from the tree called Myrtle
Even the man with the sickle,
Shall know there has been a handover of mantle.
By yours truly, Louis Noel O.
