A race that is ran by an individual LIFE.
Even if i can say il be with you even if people promise to stand by your side. Even if they sleep with you.
Oh my dear brothers and sisters this is a race you will run alone for you win alone. You loose alone.
If you lived your life with people you wouldnt receive an id with only your name,
a certificate with your name,
your family and parents wouldnt call you Ernest they wouldnt register you alone.
Look all of u have a gift and that is given and you are alone life defines it by race you dont register sipho and khutso as 1 its either david or dimakatso if im wrong my apologies but its true.
Hey you may be twins but you do not come at the same time for a reason. You have a book to fill
author of your life? is you,
editor? Is you
publisher, you. Reader is God
the audience is you again.
The manufacturer of you is God.
You were given birth yet no one owns you axcept God that is why we need to remember why we are here.
You run life alone not with me we just assist one another.
Am i wrong?
You came alone why die alone why pass alone why work for you why satisfy you why be baried alone what is it about you?
Hha you special thing you are unique.
By me THE LEGEND.
