Siyabonga A Nxumalo

(South Africa)

My wish for you!


I wish you to see things differently,
I wish you to do things differently,
I wish you to cry, but not with pain,
But tears of joy.
I wish you to walk tall and hold your head high.
I wish you to scream louder, not becouse you're
Scared but becouse you're happy.

I wish you to embrace life as it comes.
I wish you to encounter hardships for they'll
Mould and give you experience.
I wish you to be a friend so you'll recruit friends.
I wish you to have love so you'll give love...
But most of all....

I wish you to be you, , the true you.
Not the duplicate of someone else..
JUST YOU.....!

    This is wonderful, specially if you give this into the hands of God, and be thankful that the best will come into reality, because many people are wishing and praying for the poor and the sick, but if that person do not want it, it never comes in. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

My lute awake! perform the last
Labour that thou and I shall waste,
And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
