I'm Blessed

Feelings all bottled up, no discussing “Long Walk
to Freedom” autobiography of Nelson Mandela,
comparison with “Shantaram” forbidden, every-
thing precious to me kept secret to prevent you
from blowing your top, spoiling the happiness
of the gifts I prepared for mama and my sis

I feel like crying, then medication steps in and stops
my feelings from increasing secretion of adrenaline
and I regard you calmly again, in fact – why should
you share these feelings with me? There is Ulrike
and my favourite poet – why should I look to you
for discussion? You take care of everything:

Finance, groceries, holidays, transport, food – it is
unfair to expect more - only when we clash about
the Embargo on all things Mandela do my feelings
become overwhelming and it is wrong: I’m already
blessed by Ulrike and Karen sharing my passion
for discovering the history of our hero

Angelic Nelson Mandela – which we missed….

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
