The path

The path

I have chosen this path

That’s my way

It is a dream come true

The roads maybe narrow

I will continue to stagger

With my dagger dangling along with me

It will pay some day

On a gloomy day

When all hope have gone sour

When laughs have made me to hide in shame

It will be a rag to riches

Zero to hero

No more lack or want

Gongs and drums will make melody

So I dance from a distance

Where I have gotten my stance.

  1. help me understand these two lines…i think my decoding of this poem lies therein:

    With my dagger dangling along with me

    It will pay some day…what will pay someday?

    1. This path he has chosen to walk…

    2. @adaobi, the dagger i did say means my pen.

      it will pay some day means that this writing will pay some day
