My Wish To Be Prime Minister


I worked so hard
Had big dreams as a kid
Enormous dreams
I worked so hard
Everything was going to plan
Until a day struck like no other
I was put under such hardship
Until I tried again, really hard
Until I was put under more hardship - on another more terrible day.
My dreams were held back so much that I am ageing everyday waiting.
I expected to reach my dream as a young man.
Yet I was late.
So late, it is still like the beginning of my journey.
What do I have to show for it.
Finished teenage hood.
I became wiser every day in my conquest.
Maybe god wants me to be wise instead of reach my dream.
I tried everything to reach my dream.
I will keep trying.
But when is it possible.
I don’t want to be an old man before I reach that dream.
Never know what it feels like.
Someone teach me what it is like to reach your dream.
I learnt.
You never know what life holds.
It could be good.
It could be bad.
But you will always grow wiser in your conquest.
I never know what tomorrow might bring.
Yet I know I will be ready to fight for my dream.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
