Today I'M Going - Poem by Goodenough Sakhile Dlamini
“Today I’m going”
13 years of life I’ve been preparing
Preparing for this journey
Now I am to start a 4 years adventure, so what would they have to say
Now the time has come, without waiting
The real world is waiting as I’m landing
Listen it the beginning not the ending
Yes I am a matriculate as I’m standing
Thanks YOU holy God now I’ m leaving
I am leaving home I got hope.
I’m already feeling the sounds of cars
Overcoming the music of birds
Seeing the different people of different kind
What about the joy of seeing the sea
As it flow right through the shores
The sea breeze taking away my hat
It demanding my respect…
Reminding me of father.
He used to tell me that you should respect the world
So it can respect you back…
But I know it's time to go.
I've overstayed my welcome
But you have made it possible
For my move to University.
I can't believe how fabulous this is what a chance I've got
To change my family life from poor to wealth
Yes God I got that hope…
I'm so delirious I think I'm going ridiculous.
The excitement is too much for me
I have a fever and my speech has gone all wild
Squeaky voice with a red flushed face
I can't believe I'm acting like a child.
The time has come for me to be a hero
Of cause from zero
