I'M Blessed - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

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….
