I was in class when they broke the news
I thought it was a prank and I went to play
I joke around with my friends,
I still don't trust the source
My mama said I should be strong
That the news was true
God I can't cry
I swing my mood for month
But am always still angry
I can't just believe all what people told me
I respect no one
I fear nobody
But the smile on my face is to fake everybody
I work, I pray, I write... but still no gain
Though that was years back but now I still feel the pain.
Finally I got a friend who understand me
A female friend who stood by me and encourage me
Still when I look around it looks like I gat no relative
Except for her, my mom and siblings why the negative
I remember the day I failed my post jamb, I saw all my friends leaving me
But still stay strong because
Mum told me Never to let it be
I promise her I will Never give up
Until I get above the peak
If even though I lose more money, time... and ink
But fail the second time
God! I feel like that result wasn't mine!!
Now when see others with their Dad
Chilling down the line
Gat me remember those days
When am still nine
I won't cry profusely
I got crazy trying to be like other teen
I have to be me!
I have to work hard to make mama proud
I don't have to be mean
I hate this cruel world
But when there is life with God there is hope!
I gat so many ideas dream or goals
But every one of it has is own foe !
I have my child invention
But no Creation
Why? Because no motivation
And i was asked, Who killed it?
I said "I"
Because I gave up on my ideas
but now am back
I won't let it go dark
Even in the name of "lack"
I won't even stuck it up in the sack
Never will I give up until I got a mark
Time up, now i promise never again to let it go OFF TRACK!!
