In Darkness I Lay In Thoughts - Poem by Obinna Nwerem

In darkness I lay in thoughts

Tired of the hard living

Deep in thoughts I seek another

Another life in which time waits

But I am woken by death

I wonder why my life is not as others

Happiness surrounded by sorrows

Why can't I see like others saw



Wait - so I stand - but how long

Till tomorrow turns yesterday

The life I want today, some will find tomorrow

In pursuit of happiness, none found but sorrow

Scared I am not of that which is death

For I have died once as a boy

Now I hope to live as a man

And never to die a poor mans death
