onesimo odwa mabovula (13 july 1990 / Mthatha, Eastern Cape, South Africa)
I've been hurt before
I know how I fell feel but I’m afraid of what the
Future might unfold
I’m scared of attaching myself to you
I don’t want to get my heart broken
I have been hurt, you have been hurt
I would assume that, that’s just how life is.
It’s not fair we say but we forget that
People are responsible for our grief.
We forget that we are responsible for other people’s pain
Do we live for the moment or do we live for a purpose,
But what other worthy purpose is there rather than life?
I mean live for another person.
Any way is it our choice, do we chose to live or not?
Way I see it we don’t. We are just born.
Logically we should not choose who we live for.
I got to this from thinking about, who do we live for, and why?
Will they appreciate the efforts or not?
Will they not hurt you given a chance, I don’t know.
I know one thing though love has never hurt anyone.
So I choose from this moment on, to love you, honour you
Care and cherish you for as long as I can
I promise to do all I can to put a smile on your beautiful face
When times re hard I’ll be your pillar of strength,
When times are bad I’ll be your reason to hope for better.
I’ll stand by you and hold your hand from thin moment on.
I devote my love to you.
You came into my life when I least expected it.
You make me live with a new age of hope
I believe in my strength and abilities because of you
You are nothing but a blessing to me
