Apples And Stones - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Life throws apples at us
Bringing joy to our hearts
And sometimes life throws stones at us
Burdening our hearts with sorrow
The cycle of life continues
With every rising sun
Like days and nights
The way of life is wrapped in mystery

In times of happiness
We paint life with laughter
Casting away the bad omen
We show off our smiles
Demonstrating the beauty in us
We hug the human spirit
Celebrating the love we share

In times of sorrow
Let’s remember the sunshine
The light at the end of the tunnel
The perpetual hope
The ribbon of steel
That binds our life
Our past, present and future
Glued together by hope, faith and love

In happy times, you should swim
In days of sorrow, you should float
Float above your sorrow
Never allowing doubt in your heart
For the day of sorrow shall pass
