Chains Of Life On Me Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Chains Of Life On Me

Rating: 5.0

Chains of life on me! ! !
Gains lost to the wind;
Birds free to fly but, i cannot flly!
In pains i do walk,
In pains i do work,
In pains i do sleep.

Borders all around me! !
With tears very deep in my heart;
No grain no rain!
Negative attitudes all around me on earth;
But, they cannot drain my positive works! ! !
For the support of mankind.

To board the train daily to work,
Hard work in the name of my pains! !
The glory of which i have to help my people;
No pain no gain!
Rains gone away for me to accept the dry land.

My steps with pains!
My life with pains! !
Day after day to gain my ways across the borders;
But the negative attitudes seen every day cannot drain my positive works.

One day at a time!
One step at a time! !
Time and times to face my life;
On earth with the pains of life! ! ! !
All around with the chains of hatred and war!
Taking postive strides to gain my status.

Chains of life on me! ! ! !
With pains to go along with;
All these chains!
All these pains! ! ! ! !
But with positive morals able to move forward;
Tears much hidden in the heart!
Step by step to meet another day;
The way too long ahead of mankind.

Pains and chains of life.

I have read your poem with very much attention, I understand the theme of the brillian t poem about the pains and chains of life. It is indeed so very difficult if one is the one who must earn for his living and for the rest. Especially when the rains do not yet appear, so very difficult.
