Crude Gold - Poem by Vincent Somto

Sunken, l lay
As the time ticked by
I savoured the solitude
As I tried to forget the past

It would have been better
If I had no gift
Or was not highly held
Because, it all made the regrets heavier

Times that has been wasted
I had lots of time
But what I did with them
I am not sure

Some things cannot be changed
Can they?
Especially those things you had the chance to change but neglected
I feel sorry for myself

Is it my destiny
Or is it just fate
That decided, I will be second place
All my life

It all seems easy for others
To climb this ladder
Or it appears to be
But I guess, mine must be work.

    All my life
