TUPAC: THE PARADOX ANTHOLOGY – UHURU

Growing up, I believed in happy ending

I still do

I find it easy and convenient to trust

It made living relatively easy

I could fondly recall that I was the epitome of honesty

If there was the need to uncover the truth

I was called to say what I witnessed

Under no oath I confessed

All that I saw

But I lived with the guilt

Of betraying the trust of my peers

Slowly, I realised that a lie might keep the peace

Painfully, I realised that the elders also compromise

All in a bid to save face

Unfazed by my experience, I forged ahead

I met people, I made friends, I made enemies

I made the mistake of believing in the heart of man

My trials however novel, the world appeared unfazed

I suddenly found myself in the wilderness of depression

All that I held dear, led me to frustration

My companion was despair

I wined and dined with fear

I felt the cold embrace of death in the depth of my soul

I held steadfast to hope

I could recall when I was little and unburden

When I was cavalier

Like an eagle soaring in the air

I picked up my washed-up ambition

Determined, I surged ahead, oblivious of past inhibitions.
