Time, Poem by Mc Emmanuel Zohn


Time drops in decay
like a candle that burns out.

Time runs;
quickly like a flash, it is gone,
and before you know it,
a day passes, then a week,
a month, a year,

Mc Emmanuel Zohn was born in Liberia on July 9, 1998, to Francis and Ophelia Zohn.  Growing up in life, Emmanuel experienced the fickle hands of fate; his
family went through a great financial hardship that opened his eyes to
abject poverty. 

However, he was brought up — sadly enduring his unfair condition. At the
age of 15, his loving mother passed away, and later after four years,
his elder sister died in a fatal car accident. But he was determined to
bring comfort to his family. He graduated from High school with honor
and distinction and is now an emergent Writer/Poet .
