A Conversation With Myself - Poem by james karume

Is this all i ever needed in life?
After all this long while
Trying to make out of grief
With my only tool-a knife
Watch out! Life is so brief!

I try catching a breath
That seems so wretched
Whom will i turn to for bread?
Everybody's tangled to his wealth
Watch out! Life is so brief!

They ask so many questions
Their answers full of illusions
Been to the various institutions
Oh! Still in confusions
Watch out! Life is so brief!

The strife will not be long
The pain neither strong
The future is always promising
Only to those, with passion!
Watch out! Life is so brief!

I have always been a dreamer
Forcing me to be a believer
One day i will be a dream-chaser
Being the light to my predecessor
watch out! Life is so brief!

Now i look at me
And focus on where i will be
I will thank the Lord for letting me be
The best I can ever be
Watch out! Life is so brief!
