Precious Soul (Pearl Le'poet Ndlovu & Onalethuso Petruss Ntema)


rock my boat precious soul,
i lost my goals
rock my boat precious soul
and take me home
rock rock rock,
rock my boat precious soul
i lost my goal
rock my boat!

i lost my soul,
i lost my tongue out
i cannot even utter a word; its hopeless

i lost faith for a better tomorrow
i am burdened by all the sorrow,
bring me an arrow
and bow
so i can get rid of this coal..

coal coal coal
am exhausted like
men in the mines,
i started working
in a white overall
but now it has turned black
like these coals,
my julle body is
covered in black,
my heart is turning black
itself, who am i?
show me where i lack
precious soul

rock my boat precious soul,
i lost my goals
rock my boat precious soul
and take me home
rock rock rock,
rock my boat precious soul
i lost my goal
rock my boat!

rock my boat as i sail
away precious soul,
hold my heart not to fade
away precious soul,
fold my arms
in strength precious soul,
told me a folklore
i sang to my precious soul,
my eyes so heavy
to see by the shore
and beyond precious soul,
my feet is ready
and steady
to walk my walk
precious soul,

my arms are open
to hold you by me
precious soul,
rock my boat
and walk my walk
precious soul,
take me to a place
i belong precious soul

uncover my soul
precious soul,
discover my goal
precious soul,
run to my own
precious soul,
wipe away the tears from
mine eyes precious soul,
dance to me precious soul,
like the uhuru warriors
by the jungle,
drum me a rhythm of the soul
precious soul,
hum me a hymn of life i long
and dream precious soul,
find me a precious soul...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
