What Should I Give Out? - Poem by ckim mbasa

When I was young, I gave out a pigeon
Because I had many in stock
I gave out a hen a week after
A month after I gave out a peacock
For all the birds I gave out I realized I was young.

I gave out a goat in my time of youth
I gave out a mule a week after
I gave out a donkey, and
a horse out I gave, I realized I was a youth.

Now that I’m old,
Questions forehead
To what should I give out?
Is this a story or testimony?

For what I should give out, I need an answer.
