Treasure Island

Zolani Nkomo

(15/06/1995 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Aren't You Excited


Aren't You Excited?
We're Here
Grade12
Finally We Can See Our Whole Lives Ahead Of Us
The Rest Of It Is Behind Us

To Think Of All The Odds Against Us
The Gods Must Be With Us
Artisans Of Our Own Fate
Smarter With A Clearer Mind State

It's Too Late
Nothing Can Stop Us Now
Zolani I Promise I Won't Let Us Down
Always Been The Cow Boy With The Spirit Of A Bull

The Faith Of Fay Birth a Humble Champion
I Just Hope I Become An Honourable Man
I Want To Do Good

I Want To Make It To The Future
So I Can Influence Forever
Peace Taught Me How To Be A Shift Shaper

School's Teachings Were To Prepare Us For Adaptation To Life
I Like Me Just Fine
Wasn't Prepared To Be a Shape Shifter

See It From My Point Of View
But Your Vision Is Blurred
Adapting Has Your Vision Obscured
Truth Is The Cure

We're Almost There
I Can See Everything From Here
Peeping Over The Fence To Greatness
We've Been Running From It
We've Been Standing On It
Why Couldn't I Just Accept It

I'm Not A Numbers Man
But Then I Didn't Know Who I Am

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
