Why me?

GIDRAF MWANGI 1992 (Murang'a)



Fate stalks me everywhere I go
No matter how I evade him
He’s just determined at me to have a go
And me life to discard to gloom

The days hover away like eagles
Leaving me utterly dismayed
With no chance to flip the volumes
To at least regain the filtered

Fate has convinced her also
She leaves me whenever in public
Leaving me uneasy and nervous, also
Tempting me my thumb to suck

At this point everybody at me gazes
Leaving me overwhelmed, but
Staring vacantly into space is
But the only solution to it

Fate, why not someone else now!
