A hero in the shadows

Aaron Mbubzi

Sometimes looking for solace
Sometimes for inspiration

Always thrusting my eyes
On it with admiration
Sometimes looking for solace
Sometimes for inspiration
Sometimes for history

Every day i shower it with praises
But it does not whisper a word back
A word that “you tried”
A word “you fought a good fight”
Rather, it silently sucks my compliments

I surrender my pride to its glamour
Yet it is a creation of my own
My very own handicraft by all means
Yes! I got me freedom, i said
Yes! I am my own living Martyr
But i lost in the shadows of my own inferioty
