Complete Poem by Dewald Viljoen


Rating: 3.2

I have stood where angels fly,
and I have crawled where demons sleep.

I fought with lions,
and I ran from the dark.

I drank the honey sweet dew,
and I spat out the bitter black poison.

I laughed at some beginnings,
and, I cried at to many endings.

I have loved with passion,
and I have wept with sorrow.

And, because of you,
I survived it all.

I was whole for a moment,
I can never be broken again.
