Biography of Anele ''The African Son'' kaPotelwa

Words spoke
as my concious clicked! With a poke
Emotions commanded
Loud the inner soul shouted
Yet my mind whispered
And poetry conquered
Word is what I wrote
The song of sounds Is what kept note
And so I became!

My heart predilected
And my pen reflected
In papers the lines were neglected
But in mine, a poet was moulded
And a writter was founded
And so I became!

Shivering the leaves of reality
Blowing the storms of possibility
And flowing the wave of capability
Talent was therefore born
And obstacles were all torn
And so I became

At the university of Johannesburg studied economics
But continue to expose all kinds of social politics
The human slavery in Africa
The days of childhood in Africa
The love for Africa
And the life in Africa
And so I became

It is in the wisdom of elders
Within the optimism of builders
It is in the boiling mind of words I atter
The delicious lines filled with butter
I raised my head and turned on the light
I saw poetry in real words of genuine sight
Then I praised literature
And gave respect to its nature
And so I became
Yes! Ofcause I became

It is in the splendid identity
The honorable resemblance of indemnity
The days of waking up early in the morning
And singing glory to ages of word mining
It is in the love of all sights
That lives me with loud gliding light
That bright it shines the darkness of the heart
And so reflects the values I got from the hut

I am Anele the name
I am Potelwa the surname
I am The_African_Son
'Unyana_WeAfrika'
And so they called the nick in the name

I love word
I live word
I breath word
In poetry I believe!

Aftermath

It becomes a figment
A life upon a shadow
The dark shades tell the pain
Of a tale not so fairy
And motions raise emotions
Caution raises suspicions
A day longer than history
It tells a story of hurt,
It tells a life of tears

[Hata Bildir]
