Its either now or never : I`m Too Young to Die

It was before i stepped out of the room when i heard a heard voice calling my name, i was not even sure if my name was the one called and spotted from the crowd of wonderful and determined group of talented individuals.

I nearly actually forgot that i already signed up for a stand up poem reciting, it wasn`t a competition but it looked like one when every one who went on stage was as better than the previous one.

I struggled to understand what i actually had in mind before i start presenting my own short poem that i wrote within five minutes when i entered the stand up poem reciting room.


Every one seemed so content and that gave me the courage to stand, despite being scared what other people would think of my poem which was

“Hard times are coming

the beginning of the battle

soon you must tie your shoe lace

many comes with the same aim

shooting for your replacement

fighting is the sole way

I’m still too young to die

poorly the light of the future burns

ashes block our eyes

who is to clean the mess, the roads to clean

remain of the veterans,claim for their rights

their wishes and ambition died right after

who is to take the dying wishes to paradise?

i`m still too young to die

whoever tried, ended up in hands of the few

no democracy and rights to live

choices are made by strong people

that we follow what they say

they become fat for our works

production of our own we get nothing out of it

who is to protect our production?

I’m still to young to die

few take offices for the hidden interests

education look for a patriot to take

no one seems strong,to take it to the field

it is being used for personal stuff

is it really the meaning of it

tree fruits encourages many

knowing not that they are seasonally

many brave minds are blocked , who is to unblock them?

I`m still too young to die

some strength died for many blood

spirits that left them have no home

looking for a successor no one comes

fear of death engrave our rights

corrupt of leaders ,poverty prevails

revolution is the solution

new faces on the island,.save us all

who is to take us all into that island?

I’m still too young to die.”


Well, afterward the crowd clapped at last, thought it was lame for every one to ditch the truth that we are all living, the truth that we do not owe anyone anything but ourselves.

Time to letting ourselves stand and fight for what we believe in instead of fighting so hard to achieve someone else dream, it feels irresponsible pushing someone too hard towards something they do not often get along with. The reality will always prevail, you cant grow seed on the tarmac road is the truth and that will never change.


Its time to stand up now and do what makes you happy, remember, we all are too young to die, Live your moments, its either now or never.
