Of Lines Written In A Coach To Aunt Naida Who Begged Me To Marry Lizzy A Foreigner - Poem by Baldwin Mupfeki

Up to me to let you knoUp to me to let you know
Unto you will put it
Of utterances
Nestled under my toungue
Nothing short of the lines
'Its o'er, yes its o'er! '
Of virtues l couldn't unmask
How of parallels we were
Same way, never to Same way, never to meet
Aboard a ferry

    When It's Over Is It Over, Or Will Echoes Haunt?

    who has not uttered similar words
    to 'it's o'er, yes it's o'er! ' perhaps
    'Thank God It's Over' or splintered dozens
    of myriad forms with similar meanings

    often often have these words
    been spoken, in so many ways,
    in so many different tongues,
    with so many differing meanings,

    chapters of life are held in these words
    chain slaves to unpleasant experiences
    we have all been in during our trap lives

    book mark learn from all life's lessons
    planted seeds may grow into mighty trees
    or waste wood cut down flicker in fires
