I'm a cold fish coz of the environment I grew in,
The world taught me to be a dark horse.
My past experiences have been a dead duck.
I grew up with no place to call a home,
No shelter for warmth,
Day to day struggles for food.
I wasn't an outcast in the streets,
What I knew my parents had a dog and pony show for a marriage ceremony.
And in the end I had a dog's life,
All I had was a kick in the teeth.
Each new day I ended up with knuckle sandwich.
The Askari's clubs was a norm for survival,
And I would live like a scaredy- cat.
Despite all she saw the good in me.
Nursed and brought me to life again.
What she did was like a short in the arm.
I once heard all cats are grey in the dark,
That explains me after years of toil.
And I had to agree that all roads lead to Rome.
After two seasons of hitting the headlines,
I got an appointment with them.
I asked them why they had left me,
All they could say was "shit happens and please forget son, forgive us".
I reminded them that April showers bring may flowers.
I took a paper and wrote them a feedback.
Yeah a feedback before leaving .
"An eye for an eye" I handed them as I headed for my car keys.
Sharing is Caring
