Zero spur of life!

GIDRAF MWANGI 1992 (Murang'a)

The dreary days swim by
Leaving me with a sorry bye
Coz life to me is not a pie
And to live, a desperate orgy
 
Many a times I craze
With ideas wild ablaze
But I am not able to utilize
Coz I am a student in cage
 
Oh the many howls I make
Cursing and lamenting fate
Who was daring enough to me
And to nuts he drove me
 
The many attempts to chase life
Which zooms by like smoke
Leaving me aghast with surprise
Wondering whence life I will fare
 
Oh! The scheming nights to flee
From the slavery that bindeth me
To chase luck with unshackled move
And my ideas to utilize from fade
 
But whence the spur of life
That I may the steering wheel drive
And reach the dreams I fabricate
To whence I think my future lie
