Give Me A Chance

Though I`ve left the stage of unemployment,
I`m yet to achieve  full  accomplishment,
I toil to do better by not being a mediocre,
But,yet my skill and strength receive disappointment.

Feel ashamed that I could not even woo you-my love,
due to status that is not ordained  from  above,
I made several advances which have been turned down,
yet,my heart tinges for you for being a lovely dove.

Give me a chance to show you that I`m amiable,
though my present state may not be acceptable,
I cherish you more than jasper and sweet myrrh,
Allow me to treat you like a queen that is invaluable.

I planned to be a rich crude oil merchant in the past,
but due to my dad`s death, this idea did not last,
I`m working so hard to break away from this incarceration,
For not being where I want to be makes me wane so fast.
