Comfort Zone - Poem by VUSI CHRIS VENUS MALALA

LIFE IN THE DARK,
LIFE AT NIGHT...
THE BRIGHT SMILE THAT HAD BEEN PAINTED ON MY FACE FOR YEARS IS GONE NOW.
THE POEPLE I SHARED MY LIFE WITH ARE AWAY NOW

I AM ALL ALONE IN THE DARK
I CAN ONLY SEE MY GRAVE
THE SKY IS FOREVER DARK LIKE DAWN AND THE DAY IS ALWAYS PACKED WITH SORROW AND GRIEF
I DID NOT MAKE ME...
BUT I KNOW WHAT I WANT TO BE DETERMINES WHAT I AM.
I AM AT DEATH'S PEAK POINT

THE SILENT SOUNDS ARE CALLING MY NAME
THE BLIND EYE HAS SEEN ME
AND DEAF EAR HEARD ME CRYING AND NOW A SOLUTION IS OFFERED...
COULD IT BE DEATH OR COULD IT BE HURT BUT SOMETHING MUST BE DONE
DEATH WON'T BE MY FATE
I AM STRONGER THAN I THOUGHT.

I EVACUATED DEATH'S FALLING TOWERS AND ESCAPES UNHARMED NOW I AM BACK AT POINT ONE WHERE MY DEATH WAS SET TO OCCUR.

I AM AN EXPRESSIONIST
I AM A GIANT WITH SHORT LIMBS
I AM SHOCKED BY THE POLITICAL CLIMATE OF MY LAND
I AM SHOT BY THE POWER OF THE BLACKSPOT

IT'S LIKE I'M DREAMING BUT IT'S REAL...
AM I DEAD, OR MAD?
LET MY RESTLESS SPIRIT BE BURIED AND LET MY BODY REST WHILE THE MIND AND HEART IS AT WORK. LET ME BE
AND LET ME LIVE

FEELING LOW WITHOUT ANY FLOW MADE ME LOOSE MY GLOW AND I HAD TO GO... BUT WHERE TO?
A HUGE DROP OF HOPE

AND SO I SOB TO EASE THE TENSION
AND PAY ATTENTION TO MY MISSION THAT WAS ALMOST FAILING AND I WAS FALLING.
I AM ON THE RISE AND THEY CAN NEVER TOUCH ME AGAIN
THE SKY IS BEYOND MY LIMITS BUT I'M AIMING HIGH

I'M TORN BUT STRONG
I'M QUIET AND WRONG AND FINALLY
I'M GOOD AND GONE
... INCOMPLETE...
