! /? }{*+-Bamboozled…….? - Poem by Barry Lindelihle Mvelase

All my work is fading and my strength is lost.
All things that I’m trying to do are not working.
I want to surrender because I’m feeling failure from within my heart.
Regretting my faults also makes me feel like I am a looser.
When I keep on trying I feel burdened.
Burdened by all these elusive goals that I am failing to achieve.
Giving up makes me feel a bit better.
Better than facing all those barring obstacles which make me feel like a failure.
Barring me and melting down all the hope for my future.
Of course I don’t like to …….
But I’ve tried and failed,
So now I’ve decided....
I give up.
