The Darkest Moment


Each day of the week I wake up smiling
I step out of my house always laughing
The moment I get outside I start crying
My fellow country people are suffering
Uncommitted unknown false sin

The children endowed with great talent
Are suffering undeserved punishment
Their abilities are being placed in prison
Making them futureless without reason

My heart is vigorously constantly pounding
The echoes of the people's cry very touching
I'm be forced to be the people's warrior
Hoping to overcome their greatest terror

I'm holding on to life's precious mirror
To show them the way of the superior
The government are without honour
My people are more than conqueror
As acknowledge by our sole creator
But they are being made inferior

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
