Down This Road - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

So familiar are these feelings
This smile I've seen before
We're in a place we've been
We've been down this road before

Tell me is it worth another try
Even though it may bring a cry
Can we sail in these waters?
Can we risk to drown under these tides?

We've been down this road before
Down these familiar paths of pain
I've tasted salty tears of shame
These same words you once uttered

We stood right at this point in time
So many times, back to square one
I've seen the spark ignite only to die
I've waved as we said our goodbye

Though I come with an open mind
Is it really worth another try?
We've been down this road before
What would make this time last

I've been down this road before
With salted lips
With a big sore heart
How can we tell we won't part?

We've been down this road a lot
I know these streets of pain
With tall unlocked gates of fear
Often covered by clouds of sadness

Tell me is it worth another try
To open the mind to hope
Lacing the heart with love
Have we not try so many times?
