Strong and True

written by: Lionel Ntasano

@LNtasano

 

I will age
And so will you
I am no sage
And this is my view

We are all we got
Me and my crew
We could be chilling on a yacht
But the plans fell through

It is the life we choose
Where friends become foes
It is a life of ego, drugs and booze
That brings fake snakes and dishonest hoes

When the chips are down
I realize I am all alone
Because nobody is around
I cry tears that are bitter and warm

The world moves fast
An old friend came back and stopped
He pulled me up at last
Because he realized I was knocked

Let us not talk of money
Let us forget the world
Let us focus on our comradery
Forget the yacht
Let us sail unfurled

I will age
And so will you
I hope our friendship stays
Strong and True

Lionel was born in the third smallest county in Africa, also, one of the most unknown countries in the world - Burundi. He has lived, traveled, and studied all over the globe, trying new things (Here), enjoying transient relationships (There), and safekeeping values from (Everywhere) - He is secretly a Beatles fan to say the least, a musician at heart, culinary chef by profession, but, George Orwell tapped into his unconscious mind liberating a part of him through literature. He has made it his lifetime goal to share this liberating abstract ideology by writing. His first attempt was by publishing a novel titled, 'Greener On The Other Side'.
