I stretch my hands
I steady my feet
I move with care
No better than the blind
Where the doorknob lies
I have no thought
The bill is here
 For power that is powerless
For supply that is worthless

Water has gone far from my tap
The bulbs have refused to light up my path
My gen sings a new song each day
Just as I wake on my dampen bed
And as to call for help leaves me in a puzzle
The bill has come again
But I still live in gross darkness
In my fatherland

PenAStory is a group of young individuals with a passion for literature who have decided to come together to write under one platform. We seek to educate, inform as well as entertain our readers. Also, because we are targeting young literature lovers, we would like to touch on other interests of their lives hence the relationship category and because we all need a bit of motivation in our lives, we decided inspiration won't be so bad
