Treasure Island

Gaylord Munemo

(20 May 1991 / Masvingo)

Could I ever be your hero?


In those desolate nights,
When life is of fright and fear,
The curtains waving dramatically,
The moon darkening slowly,
Could i ever be your hero?

The hours when your heart is slow,
Your mind so much in pain,
Giving up and losing all hope,
Trying to no avail,
Will i ever be your hero

The moments of your last breath,
Your skin becoming cold as ice,
Finding life in lifeless places,
The heart beat slowing down,
Could i ever be your hero?

When life turns back on you,
Seeing no bravery in yourself,
Finding no option or alternative,
Falling in a ditch of hot water,
Could i ever be your hero

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
