Twist Of Fate - Poem by Kealeboga Malejane
Through and through life threw her off course
Left her with no hope for the next second
No hope at all...
Who would have thought today she would be a setter of trends
After all the dark days when she was termed a result of no sense
Twist of fate
Imagine the fragile little girl
Who STRONGLY wore a smile even when...
tumours of enormous pain were oozing vividly from the inside out
.. how she needed Twist of fate
Moments when the entire world would fade into the background
Finding herself waiting there...but... for nothing
The night was synonymous with haven because that is...
When she had her SPOTLIGHT ON...
Her version of everlasting passion
Releasing the perenial waters that never ceased to flow...
...down her ill looking face
She was unfamiliar with the happier side of life
How she dreaded the daylight..
To her it brought the beginning of a new edition of troubles
How she hated to find out her new recipe for the day
The pain..plus..the anger..less of a genuinely happy face
Rapidly multiplied her in growing rage and confusion
Little did she know.. GOD had a plan
The best laid strategy.. oh! little did she know
Rather she was unaware..ignorant.. very much so but not out of choice
She never knew the other side of life
It came but so vaguely she couldn't possibly see
..at least not with her literal broad, brown, intelligent, innocent eyes
Nothing mattered anymore...she set there impatiently..
.. awaiting the day the grave would call upon her
Little did she know! that she would move from Ethopia
all the way to Utopia..
How this sounded rather like her nightmares judging from the forever on going schemes
She hid her tears
Afraid to burst open because of the delusive perceptions embedded
in her mind by her oppressors that she would be the world's mockery if she dared..
Pity...don't feel so, this was but her growing from juvinille landing her at supersize
The seemed perfect from every angle...but her
Feelings... low feelings imparted by her 'oppresors'.. that is
..another word for her 'elevators'.. a blessing in disguise
Now little did they know she was constantly rising from..
.. boredom to stardom, from nothing to something and from zero to hero
Termination of the days she moved to the world's rhythm..
..the ability and power she outlooked had a take in the transition of having
...the entire world dance to her tune
Her spontaneously embedded intelligence broke the ties
Her talents saw her shine
Her oppressors could not define
their world class invention.. what they had built
But only her Creator proved to be divine
Self discovery! ! ! ! ! .. That you can call it but she got tired of all the cynicism
Inhuman worthless feelings, all the blame and imposed guilt
She had to say farewell to her past
NO need to judge because she no longer resides there
All thanx to.....TWIST OF FATE...
