Luwi Habte

Rookie (19 march / Asmara)


In the hard times
While I was leading folks lives
A friend was my helper
Who let my disturbing over

In the times acted to shorten my life
While I fed up with life which is unsafe
A friend was my shepherd
My salvation like a guard

The one who listen silently
And the one who speaks fluently
He was my savior in trouble
Also my light in the dark like a candle

Dedicated to great friend of mine Jonathan

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
