Hopeless Hopes

In trepidation
You approach your future
Flapping your wings
Against the wind of life
Like a bird with wounded wings
You try to soar high above
Into the atmosphere of life

How can you sow without a seed?
How can you drive without Petrol?
How can you swim against the tide?
These you must achieve to be a Man
In our society, you must brace up & meet up
It doesn’t matter how you do it
It is a rite of passage.
