In the womb of my mother
I wanted to be born doctor
Delivered, I wanted to walk
Then, came the need to talk
Life is such an adventure
That all of us like to feature
Then, I wanted to go to school
As I thought I was not that fool
After school, the need of job arose
Poor to good; better salary to dose
I should have lived all I had meant
Yet, better dreams I had dreamt
Like having a beautiful woman
Who could not let pass no man.
Married, I wanted to have children
Who could bring me joy and happiness
I will not desire death but heavenly class.
Desires remain unfinished until death
Knocks at human’s door for eternal trip,
To heaven where dreams fade and no flip
