There Is Time - Poem by Mulatwa Mosisa

I had been waiting yesterday
For a dream to come true
To see in the real life
Something out of the blue
I had strong faith
To see what I wait for
But, nothing was happening
And the day turned a bore.

How come, things went wrong
While I’m full of faith?
I was very eager
To fill the air with praise.
I sit and complained
Can’t his eyes see my faith?
“Where is my God today? ”
I supposed to be helped
Because He has a way.

To find the answer
I sit and search the book

Solomon says to me
That is how my God work:
There is a time
For everything under the sun
A time for darkness
And time for sunshine.

If there’s appointed time
On earth for everything
Why should I rush myself
To grab some useless thing?
If I have some patience
And wait for few moments
I can see miracles
That can change many lives.

Yesterday I was sad
But now I’m consoled
I know there is a time
For everything I need
My God will provide
What will be good for me
When I’m rejoicing
And cries my enemy.

A time for loneliness
Replaced by being couple
A time of sorrow
Crushed by sweet smile
A time of hopelessness
Destroyed by brighter hope
People come together
Bind up with a love rope.

Thinking God forsaken me
I cried yesterday
He taught me a lesson
And wipes my tears away
It was foolish of me
Not knowing the time
Wasted my energy
And longed for which is not mine.

    Chendu, Thank you for your beautiful comment. I read your poem which you wrote about Mandella, that's such a fantastic piece of art that glorified Madiba.
