Lawrence s. Makola

Don’t Despise Him

Do not try to look down on him
Seeing him on the streets
Selling fruits like a fool
Thinking he is a loser,
He does not have future
His life is depended on your change,
That wakes up still on an empty stomach
Since what he does is nothing
Compared to your fancy job
Don’t despise him

Don’t forget he is a father
A bread winner
A husband
A brother
More over a man in a society
Don’t despise him

He was a slave driver
A house breaker
A fearless murderer
A street fighter
The ex bulldozer bully
Don’t despise him

Don’t hurt him but help
Don’t ignore him but give courage
Don’t insult him but support
Don’t bypass him but improve his life
Don’t despise him

He had a choice and stuck with it
He changed
He is not living in his shadow
But he died in his past life
He couldn’t transmogrify his life
But sure as certain transforming it
He failed to be a millionaire in his dealings
But a proud and respected centinaire
Don’t despise him
