If I fade


When I cross the bar

I pray I leave with a smile.

Children and grandchildren round my table.

I pray I’m never forgotten

My name sang over and over

In the lips of every student, artist and poets

I pray I make an impact like Mandela and Luther King.

I hope I would put a smile on the face of little children

Give light to those tamed by darkness

Show love in the midst of solitude.

I pray I marry a beautiful lady who loves my weird life

I pray I give her the life she has always dreamt of.

I pray I set a worthy example to the younger generation

So they believe they are kings and queens with power in their voice.

I pray I help raise my fatherland, my continent to greater heights.

If I fade at a young age

If I fade without fulfilling my dreams

Then it would be a universal truth

He who the gods love dies young.
