Life Experiences - Poem by Tendekai Mugonda

In a life you opt to be a king yet enslaved by circumstances beyond
your control.
were you are forced to live in yesterday and forget tomorrow.
A strange place where happiness is not a resident but completely filled
with sorrow.
Were you realize that change is not an easy journey but a trip too
fast to move a little bit slow.
Expected to move with the tide but your legs are in shackles.
Singing songs of freedom in large numbers like memorizing barcodes.
Were your life experiences are more dangerous than sharp teeth of jackals.
Patience as your friend like a vulture waiting for life to manifest yet these experiences
are nothing but carcass.
They are life experiences which go beyond every man's class and also the signs of time
like the hour glass.

In a life you feel nothing more but just like the grain of sand on the beach.
Were you let not your hands but your heart to reach for those who seek.
Your life as a serial killer watching belief turning into a myth.
It is like an old man white hair showing proof of wisdom yet trapped in the web
of the foolishness he speaks.
A tune of life experiences with hiccups like a broken string of a violin.
Its all hypocritical changes every now and then like colours of a chameleon.
Your life a desert only hoping for an oasis yet being promised an ocean.
Beware of every step as you approach without caution.
As life gives you a good reception remember it can also comes with deception.
Life is a mixed bag of feelings waiting to be carried along a bumpy road of experiences.
