Wasted Time

 

Wasted Time
By Ammar AlShukry

 

Thinking about the time we waste

Holding onto the past a fading face

Afraid to love forward so while you’re waiting wait

For more of your life to pass while you stay in place

There are those that have problems they’re afraid to face

Use drugs and alcohol lay their brain to waste

I need my mind sharp so when I state my case

My venom is bitter so my spray they taste

It’s time to raise the gates

Cuz the people are tired and its way too late

For us to be appeased with a lil taste of cake

Born Muslim so I’ve tasted hate

War and genocide, sisters gave tasted rape

It’s bitterness countered only by the sweet taste of faith

Dreaming dreams of success long days away

So we need a generation that we pray awakes

And when you do we need you to stay awake

Cuz we seen too many an inferno have its blazes fade

In my mind I’m looking forward to amazing days

Where the hypocrites leave and the faithful stay

To take their place in a world where the stakes are raised

History is knocking, will you grace a page?

Paradise is waiting, will you case your place ?

Or will you be one of those who doesn’t know which way to take

Forever pausing and hesitating at the fates he waits

Until time passes him by, finally he fades untraced

Gaining neither of both worlds, a wasted fate..
