The Crawl - Poem by Mpheng Magome

Sitting here watching the sun set
Another day down.
I still have to get through the night, but
I'm halfway there now.

Maybe tomorrow
My luck will turn around.
Maybe tomorrow
It will all work out
I clench my fists
And hold my breath,
Hope light catches me before Death
And maybe tomorrow I'll win out.

Spend the night waiting for sunrise,
Close my eyes real tight.
Try to sleep to make the time fly,
How is this my life?

Hungry and tattered:
This is my life.
Blind hope until noon,
Grasping 'til midnight.
