Jaryd was an excellent student and a talented writer.
He was a gentleman, well-spoken and soaked up information like a sponge. I am an old lady of 62, and was in awe of his talent and achievements.
He was just starting second year at Durban University, when he contracted Meningitis and although he was taken to hospital immediately, his condition was misdiagnosed and he died tragically and unnecessarily. more »

Best Poem of Jaryd Stapleton

Head Over Heels

I want to be myself around you
But all I can do is wear the mask of another
Someone you want me to be

If I stop speaking untruths
You might turn away, you might leave me
And I’ll just disappoint and disgust you

But I want to be all I can be for you
And all you want me to be
The problem is that those two are not the same
They are far from what I want in life

Is it good enough for you?
Can I dare to be myself?
Take the risk of jumping into a frozen lake?
Maybe, if, but, what happens then?
The point of no return. Another notch on my regret...
