Rise, Saddened Heart - Poem by Onalethuso Petruss Ntema

its not easy to sudden
the saddened heart
but its easy to sadden
the heart suddenly
and forever in extreme instances

its unmanly to stay away
from your one heart, in some way
only to realize the long gone
and suddenly blame the loner alone
and forever in extreme instances

a man that sees within them
is the man that needs a hand
within them, to rise at once
saddened or whichever reasonable state
of their true mind, without cause

as humans, we are prone to situations
but not situations are then to us
like the eastern traveller to a distance
of yet another life gone by
of their true mind, without cause

the moment had just presented its presence
for one to rise a saddened heart
as it beats their body and mind at heart
and finally, it asked in curiosity
what keeps us alive,
what allows us to endure?
