Strangers are taunting me
Dark memories are haunting me
Neighbours are faulting me
I can hear them chanting
As I aloof am standing
My heart drained of its strength
It is fainting
I wondered... is my world falling?
In unison they say everyday
Go away! Go away!
Vainly I pleaded
Ooh! Please may I have a say
Nay! Retorted they to my dismay
Stranger! This is your doomsday
What else is there to say?
I reasoned, let me turn to God and pray
For He alone has the final say.
