Seeing the situation in Zimbabwe, Youths have a lot of power and potential to be great people in the world but resources are not made availble to them. Thus i was inspired to wite this poem, read and enjoy. 

TAKE ME OUT OF THE STREETS


 


Take me out of the street


That’s all I am asking for.


Help me to achieve my greatest heights.


I can’t continue sharing the streets with rats,


Because the postman is knocking at my door holding my rents and rates.


They say life begins at forty,


But I will thank God if I reach thirty.


 


Mr. Authority can you believe it, I can’t even afford to buy my own pants,


I totally depend on my mom like I am her pet.


Please, can you show pity?


Because what I am seeing ahead is a pit.


Take me out of the street that is all I am asking for.


 


Only if you extend your ears,


Everything I am weeping for is achievable.


In a blink of an eye, I will be wiping my tears,


Because together we are able.


It won’t take years,


Just make resources available,


And I will deal with rest.


Seeing flying isn’t it adorable,


All I need is a push out of the nest.


Take me out of the street that is all I am asking for.
