Biography of Oduetse Gabonnwe

Professor, born Oduetse Gabonnwe,01 September 1981, Pitsong, Taung, South Africa.I am the golden boy who grew up in a slum. I started writing in high school though I was just doing it when I was bored and continued with it during my tertiary and i am still going strong with poetry that is more matured and raising debates. I posted my poems (story-telling) on other websites locally to try and get an exposure in the industry. I would like to thank everyone who sent me comments on the poems I sent to www.poet.co.za. I am determined to publish a book of poetry of all the poems I wrote.

The Desire To Succeed

I don’t like the way life is
Why has she had to leave this side?
We buried her a while ago but my heart still misses her
I thought she was gonna make it to see my success
But she passed away before she could see her boy shine
She never had a chance to see leadership qualities she taught me

I am up and has the world in the palm of my hand
I am living the life you wished I could live
