Don’t wait until I get sick
Don’t wait until I’m weak
Don’t wait until I die
Don’t wait until I lose someone
Ask how I’m doing at least once in a while.
Open your door and welcome me
Don’t shut your door on me
Feed me when I’m hungry
Know my struggle shall pass too
It is only temporary.
Don’t throw stones at my back
Nudge me when I lag behind
Hold me when I’m down
Appreciate my value while I’m still around.
Don’t wait until it’s too late
Comfort me when I’m in pain
Root for me when you see me thrive
Don’t dig a grave to bury me alive
Don’t wait to weep at my funeral
Show me that you care while I’m still around.
Hello word, my name is Dido Fik.I enjoy poetry, books, movies, hiking, and going to a Museum. I have been writing poems since I was 10 years old. Poetry is my escape and my outlet. I write about anything that comes to my mind. Religion and love have a deep impact on my works. Most of my inspiration comes from nature. My all-time favorite poets are Shakespeare, Langston Hughes, Khalil Gibran, Robert Frost, and Maya Angelou. My favorite poets at the moment are Shams Tabrizi, Rumi, Hafiz, and Lemn Sissay.
