Treasure Island

Peter Daniel Phiri

(21/06/1989 / Kadoma)

Don't Wail

He dumped you and left you torpsy-turvy on the ground.
But I will pick you up like a diamond soaked in mud.
My love shall rain upon your traculant state,
My noble heart shall gently touch yours in tatters;
And you shall again return your 'cool as ice' character and composure.
Don't wail, you shall shine again.

Flowers may wither in winter,
But spring will come and they will bloom again.
Even the bees shall come again looking for nectar.
And then, .only then,
I shall bid you farewell.
For you will be stronger and more stunning than any other earthly force.
You shall be swifter like the wind;
Glamorous and illuminous by makeup.
And wiser like the wisemen beyond the sun shall you be.
Don't wail, you shall shine again.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
