Road of Age

Written by: Abdullah Jasim

Counting days, just to reach my next year
While walking on the road of destiny trembling
Crying, collecting my tears, and them I sear
Lived sixteen years, and now my age I’m gambling
Few months more to go and be seventeen
And so months will pass quickly enough
Yet forever I’ll stay as a kid in all that I mean
Going on walking, on the road that is rough
