Be My Mentor - Poem by Iphupho The Dream
BE MY MENTOR
Im just a nobody
In the world of poetry
Trying to be somebody
In this undustry
Oh! Lord! Be my mentor...
Its a long journey
And i am a loner
Trying to build an empire for my children
At times i feel like im lost in the misdt of my tomorrow
For i am told my crafts are no good enough
Only then i remember how hard it is to have sleepless nights
Under going depression
Sweating and losing myself in these poems
For only to be told " They are not good enough"
Look down on us
Young upcoming poets
Have mercy on us
Lead us to the right path of this journey.....
Whenever we feel like giving up
Give us strength to carry on...
God be my mentor
Show the way
Hold my hand high
Give mea power to be regarded as a sword writer...
Have mercy on me Oh! Lord..
