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
