Amid it All

Written by: Abdullah Jasim

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven –stop!
Bring it back bring it back…
Five, four, three, two, one… amid… it all
I stand… once again –wait!
Just a bit more tired than before

Five, four, three, two, one… amid… it all
I hide behind a fairy tale
Just a bit longer than before
Younger with ages making more mistakes

Five, four, three, two, one… amid… it all
I become the only one
That feels what myself feels
Just a bit more careless than before
Older with days learning more

Five, four, three, two, one… zero
