SADDO

"Saddo...Saddo...",she kept calling me, Yeah,I was sad, So I was named Saddo, Flowers fell from highest branches, Fruits fell from tall branches, My days were full of worries and mess, Series of bad occurrence, Many that laughed with me, Same see me and mock about what I've lost, The blame is to be, Toes stiffed in wet shoes distort, I'm not pitied, People to whom I exercised religiosity to,doesn't account me as to be tricked, Mortgage at last have all my belongings outside the road,"Disgrace...disgrace...what a disgrace", No one want to see the shadow of a race, 'Tom the finest',your end is someone's beginning, Gone are the days when they use to call me a balloon, I lacked nothing,...my name was a tool, Is it a spell they've used on me? "Join my fraternity,and you'll stand tall again", Proposal comes in from friends and sympathisers vain, Even my wife want me to avail myself to that, Who is on my side to caution in fact, Hope and trust in God is not allowing me to give up on gust, Situations of life is ridiculing fast, Which road should I pass? A billionaire is now an outcast, Every night I count the stars, I see so many falling, Who saw my star fall? Who is ready to tell me everything? People wowed only seeing me in bad condition, Others to wonder of how this perdition came to being, Hands are at a speed to raise sanction, And based on the tenet They've written to me, I prefer being down, Dad died leaving me not even a pen, Advice he gave,is shielding four whole men, "Everything has its moment",so this agony is now demonstrating a fact, Moving through a formless cloud,vainly does fowls in the air matters act, Like an iceberg on fire,Slowly is the torment fading, Hard work admitted me to chamber of wealth, A short while,I'm outside here fenced by poverty belt, "Funny...funny,clearly this story is funny", Will my children also be left without a sheet of paper? "If so will present the case,it maybe notched to grandpa, A lineage",said softly to my youngest daughter, Replies to me"Don't assume", Words were lost inside room, "Your consolation to me is not palliative", Made that point fairly to a comparative, One step that took me to thousand miles drown, The same number of step left me down, Closing myself in the coffin, "Vanity is satisfying,but baseless",the mourner sobered in.
