I Wasn'T Right, I Wasn'T Wrong - Poem by Nyagaka Charles
Since I was born I have tried to live right,
Always determined to make my future so bright,
To settle in a Universe of Delight I can't wait,
Trying in every second and passing moment
To make my dream shine out, at least part of it,
Then make everyone smile and shout,
'Right boy', And everything will be so great.
Well, all I did they wont stomach,
Looking at me like I were a ghost...
'Right boy, but...'
Was always on their lips.
Whenever I had ma step on the ladder,
They demolished n grounded the wall,
Smashing my future into desert,
Aiming that I desert it!
All right, maybe I did not do right,
But that doesn't real mean I was wrong!
Like the sun all walk boldly all day and shine,
All gravity to defy I'll fly high,
And mock them with a smile of success
Like the moon, when their light distinguishes.
And in the end they will realize that
Maybe I didn't get right with them:
But I wasn't wrong! !
It's just that I was right
Only from a different point of view.
