Hold On - Poem by Siyabonga A Nxumalo

When love creates
Hatred,
Dispute and
Violence...
Ours enhance honesty.
When love increase
Predicaments and sorrow...
Our increase cherish.

When this perilous game
Turn to be perilous,
When these lion jaws
In a doves mouth,
Turn to be detrimental,
Our love proclaim peace.

Yes this is a dangerous game,
Yes we are no corkers.
But nobody is perfect,
Even the prophets,
Preachers and Popes.
Let us hold on together,
Let us hold on together.

When wind abduct us,
When people mislead us,
When eloquence tear us apart,
Lets hold on together,
And rectify our mistakes.

And bear in mind that,
'Men are from Mars and
Women are from Venus',
And learn to notice
Our mere differences.

So we can live as
Fearless doves in our
Love land.

Where there's no place
For torture and greediness.
For prevarication and retaliation,
And preserve our love
By loyalty and holding on together.

Lets creates harmony,
Lets paint this gift
With love colours and
With joy and adoration,
Where love slaves and tyranny,
Where frail and dingy things
Are not preserved.

A place for you and me,
A place for me and you,
A place for us,
T o embrace each other,
To hold on together,
With our deep and everlasting emotions
Of warmth and tenderness
And mutual devotion.
Lets hold on together,
Till the end of time,
Lets hold on together,
Lets hold on together.

    If love is bounded by devotion and commitment then all imperfections will dissolve in the process., Nice theme and your imagery is excellent. (Report) Reply

    Nobody is perfect;
    That's n't a problem
    But the problem is
    How can we be perfect to all the problems?
    I like this poem! ! !

    yes nobody is perfect! Actually that is truth and fact! but now a days people modified this sentence as
    ' nobody is perfect, I am the nobody' this is the attitude of modern generation! ! ! ! !
    anyway nobody seems to be sincere in this world! your poem is an appeal for the fake identities! !
    keep it up! God Bless You! ! !
