I am he who
no one can be
My plans carried out
could make many cry and shout
Times when I sit alone
Way over at my end
With my brother people make friend
he’s called Life; but when we meet he’s mostly gone.
I watch in awe and much surprise
seeing countless peeps avoiding my friendship
I hardly would decide to plan it
but my friendship would be at your demise.
Your world is much more
different from mine
And at the very deepest core,
You lose all track of time.
My hour has a terrible smell.
What died? That I cannot tell.
In a day, I got lots of ways
to get more companions and mates
Unfortunately, after I have left,
they would be called late.
I make mothers weep
and children to cry
tears their fathers can’t keep
no matter how hard they try.
I really don’t care who got something to share
But if I’m ready, then theres no time to spare.
In my house, people with talents and geniuses have moved
I have kids, and also their parents.
My errands are always smooth.
I have never really felt loved.
Never have I been placed above.
What did I do wrong?
Or do I make you sing sad songs?
Quite recently I have taken a star
he’s quite young and didn’t get too far.
I knew not how much he was adored
But now he hardly can leave my door.
I think my presence is never cared for.
Sons and daughters are now getting prayed for.
Who really must I be?
That no one wants to see?
By you I have come to stand by too…. to ask you
Who AM I?
