Sefofane Shabalala Poems
I thought I should talk about something different today, I thought I should talk about a gift, A gift that can't be given nor stolen from you, A gift that you and only you could choose whether to share or not.
I orbited this sphere long before mankind evolved, I was inspired by man's ingenious inventions long before the machines were created, now I surround this sphere,
This is a letter...
This is a letter, through me I can Envisage the life I never had that you Could live, they say ''this life is a test'' but Peep this, my test isn't what I hope for you to go through.
The father of the land you are
The father of the land you are, when hope was lost you showed us that freedom exists, Victory you brought to this once parted land many died for, You shown us where there is hatred and struggle could be peace.
He wasn't there for me
He wasn't there for me, he wasn't there to teach me, he wasn't there to guide nor to protect me, He wasn't there to show me what it takes to be a man in this cold world. They say an apple doesn't fall far from a tree, though I doubt it because I don't believe I could walk the same path as he did, Being a man I learned a hard way in this cold world so I could never pass this curse onto my legacy.
Have You Been in This Place
Have you been in this place, Have you been in this place where you're treated according to what you have, where the law doesn't consider the crime you have
A Pen and A Paper
Mother please buy me a pen so I can write down my life story, Let me have an opportunity to spread out my words.
One day at a time
One day at the time we will finally prevail, We might hope for the best though the worst come forth, never giveup because that's how this life challenges our objectives. Never make the life you live this moment an excuse to your failures because struggle isn't a place you been to, you might be born in poverty yet you stand the expedition of the future you lead.
The Thought I Cannot Complete
The thought I cannot complete, This is the thought I cannot complete, The thought of the life I lead, The thought of the wonderful world I live in.
I'm your son as it's written, I seek answers to know why they killed your son though there ain't no answers but various reasons. Dear forgive me for not believing your existence, Though there are various reasons spoken I some how refus to listen to,

I thought I should talk about something different today,
I thought I should talk about a gift,
A gift that can't be given nor stolen from you,
A gift that you and only you could choose whether to share or not.
Listen to the gift i'm speaking of,
This is a gift of courageous inspiration to others,
A gift of motivation to those who feel abandoned.
This isn't just a gift but a magnanimous gift, that needs to be dispatched to the people to hear because of it's perpetual stature,
I thought I should talk about something different today.
