Anele Potelwa (Unpublished) Poems

We All Want To Be Man,
But I Want To Be A Better Man
We All Want To Be Husbands,
But I Want To Be A Better Husband
...

You are a soul
a love endless to those who love
a heart unbreakable to those shine,
those who glide and gloom,
...

I mourn
The fake death of the world
Whose humans are too blind to hear
Whose humans are too deaf to see
...

By all means i never wanted to live with humans,
my humanity was a fund not offered to women,
that man were my greatest enemies,
who am I whth such weaknesses?
...

I am Africa
I am the mother
I am Africa
A father to mothers
...

Cohesion with no vision
As we went on to fool ourselves
We lay upon the eyes of enemies
Feeding each one with fantasy
...

I do not have money
But its funny that I have all the heart
I don't have as much friends to laugh with
But I am sure we can have our own crazy moments
...

Old as I am
the feeling attacks,
Strangles my heart and
jails the beloved mind
...

It were as if a storm
had blown away all the happiness,
killings every night
Screaming young kids
...

Flaws and toes
Lies and cries
My i sing this loudly sang silent chorus,
thats all it took for me to be me
...

To love and live
but never true
Because it stays to deceive
...

I woke up in the morning
The rain was pouring
And my thoughts were flourishing
Filled with memories
...

by all the good
you throw at him
he grows at a pace
...

What then do we call you?
Because in no way
we can prove the clemency of human,
perhaps you live in a devil's body,
...

He named it 'the spear'
and at the feet
he did not mind
but after one single hit
...

Due to benediction,
that talent is yours,
and never shall
You do away with it
...

Lies
Deception
And too many secrets
With Articificial smilles
...

ndiguqe ngawonk'amadolo
iinyembezi zindiphandl'okothuthu
ingqond'indibuza umbuzo
ndiswel'impendulo koko ndiwuphosa kuwe
...

it is no open secret
that i live to recite the clause
of our stolen sight,
an adversary behaviour that
...

It was love
That brought hate
It was joy
That brought sorrow
...

Anele Potelwa (Unpublished) Biography

Words spoke as my concious clicked! With a poke Emotions commanded Loud the inner soul shouted Yet my mind whispered And poetry conquered Word is what I wrote The song of sounds Is what kept note And so I became! My heart predilected And my pen reflected In papers the lines were neglected But in mine, a poet was moulded And a writter was founded And so I became! Shivering the leaves of reality Blowing the storms of possibility And flowing the wave of capability Talent was therefore born And obstacles were all torn And so I became At the university of Johannesburg studied economics But continue to expose all kinds of social politics The human slavery in Africa The days of childhood in Africa The love for Africa And the life in Africa And so I became It is in the wisdom of elders Within the optimism of builders It is in the boiling mind of words I atter The delicious lines filled with butter I raised my head and turned on the light I saw poetry in real words of genuine sight Then I praised literature And gave respect to its nature And so I became Yes! Ofcause I became It is in the splendid identity The honorable resemblance of indemnity The days of waking up early in the morning And singing glory to ages of word mining It is in the love of all sights That lives me with loud gliding light That bright it shines the darkness of the heart And so reflects the values I got from the hut I am Anele the name I am Potelwa the surname I am The_African_Son 'Unyana_WeAfrika' And so they called the nick in the name I love word I live word I breath word In poetry I believe!

What best is left to plunge other than Anele is an eloquent poet 'in his own way, his African order of things, his fortitude'.
