Treasure Island

Magodi Khutso Makaleng

In my life time

In my life time, somewhere in the past
Everything went smooth until things started going fast
In my life time, I have experienced too much pain
I had a lot of ambitions, dreamt of vacations in Spain

In my life time success was all I ever visualised
Lived by instincts, driven by ego and pride until I realised
Always thought it will be easy to make it
Until I realised everybody like me is striving to bake it
In my life time I have seen many of my friends fall
Travelled the country trying to get tall

In my life time I am grateful for all the wisdom
Defeated the odds, always prayed for inner peace
In my life time I have seen my nation change
All I knew kept changing, in my life time

Everywhere I go people kept evolving
Everyday my life was occupied with solving
In my life time I have been through too much pain
I had a lot of ambitions, dreamt of a vacation in Spain

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
