Man Of Today

So much for the world
Am surrounded by thugs I call friends
Time running down
They shoot at the women in the clubs
Savants in the streets
Who should I look to
In the unendearing darkness?
My back grows mould
From stabs of loved ones
Meandering through
The goodness of my soul
I thought I knew life
But life is making me know strife
To no avail
Hope comes
So insane
Love is
Am so afraid I could die
Die from fearing my abilities
I don’t know I can make it
Am just an urban youth trying to fake it
The world moves in a whirlwind
Reading her moods is quite tricky
Whatever comes
I’ll take it
Am learning to be a man of today…
