Made By Death - Poem by Mixo Malepfane

Made by death
Death cheated me of my childhood
I do not have memories of being a child
For I was born and then I was an adult

I do not even remember my mother’s touch
Nor do I remember her love for me
Father where are you to guide me
Can you show me the way
If only you have known and prepared for this

I have never been promiscuous maybe it is because I was never young
But death can never take all that I have
For I am mature, wiser and stronger

All my life I have been ready for death
But I will not die before my death
I want it all
To be loved and to love
And to think of tomorrow and forget today
My future is not in death like my past
