GLITTERS THAT FADE By Linnahpoet

Written by Editor

Today I felt great
Special above all race
But I remembered all this never stays
That someday the feeling will fade.

I felt great today
That I could command the world
That forces of nature bow to me
But quickly I was brought to reality
Where I’m a common mwananchi.

I felt great and special to exist
That nothing held me captive
And freely I could achieve my best
That today everyone loves me
For the moment I’ll leave the fantasy.

As today I feel great at heart
Content with pride
Shinning so bright
I’ll remember that I once felt special
With passion to await such a day
That ill feel greater than today
To roam the world as I please
For the day shall dawn soon
And once again I’ll be all smiles.
