One Day Poem by Siyabonga A Nxumalo

One Day

Rating: 4.5

One day i'll
Take off this mask,
And smile a genuine smile.
I'll look at the watch
And say, its ever changing times.
I'll stop worrying about
The next day, and
Just look at the future.

This burden on my shoulders
Will be lifted.
My eyes will see through
Hardships and tears.

Just one day,
My people will be
Together as one.

Keep believing in this giant truth expressed in this wonderful poem. Very well written. We can all learn a lot from people like Ghandi and M. Luther King Jr. Non-violence is definitely THE way.

When you say: some day it will never come, but if you say God will show me the way what to do clearly and you go on life, in your life patiently, then you will loose the rulership, what you want. One man can do something is he wants to be a martyr, but never change nation's life. Life is going as it should, only mankind wants to tell God what to do. That do not go.

Sentimental write, should it be mask instead of musk? Well-penned.
