The Big Secret Poem by Masharia kanyari

The Big Secret

Rating: 4.1


Allow me to share something you shouldn't know,
I am really building myself a cottage,
Its just that I lay each brick with so much purpose,
as I craft the comouflage to pretend its a castle,
so when my time comes to die I shall be proud,
Embrace the tomb I shall have built for myself,
A place my spirit can visit and watch my body decompose...
