That's Not You - Poem by Goodenough Sakhile Dlamini

That's not you
You look around like you have been around
You turn around like you playing merry go round
You think you right, you not wrong
What is ringing on your mind can also rolling in your
Mind and ruling your life
I didn't know you before but I know that not you

You were kind, you were shy, and you were respectful
You were also confidential
But how that disappeared? , how that changes?
How that came to change?
How that became your enemy suddenly
Maybe you wanted to fit in?
Maybe you wanted to be one of the kinds?
But that not what your parent sent you to do…
This is varsity need to be diversity

I don't know you but I am sure that not you
You have done well before I suppose you were living well
Since you don't like hell
But now you and hell you are well known friends
I don't know you but I know that you were not doing like this
Were you come from…
Surely if you were doing like this, you weren't going to make it
Who tells you that you are not good as are surely I know that not you
Different background makes a different experience of life
Different beliefs and values, so how that makes you feel
Like you are the only one who is suffering.
This doesn't make any sense, how can you change your lifestyle
Just because you are here?
God loves us all, remember God's meals grinds slowly
But surely
Be yourself no matter what they say…
