Sefofane Shabalala Poems
I thought I should talk about something different today, I thought I should talk about a gift, A gift that can't be given nor stolen from you, A gift that you and only you could choose whether to share or not.
Never The Same
In the beginning there was nothing, lonely in space I orbited, Shaded blind till she came along my dearest friend illuminated My surface yet she couldn't come closer as she was furiously Blazing I couldn't handle, yet my days of darkness where then over Then it hit me, the hollow within throughout grew hideously it made Sense that something was missing because lonely still I felt. My tears grew to streams, then I thought of ways to maintain myself Through seasons yet it wasn't enough as obstacles grew rapidly I needed Assistance thought of things big and small till you evolved to supreme, Things where habitual till you started studding my nature, existence, life, My elements and molecules, atmosphere, space and beyond reach, Fond I was till you started to edifice my surface I was never the same, Doing good by and for existence you said, yet slowly my resources, Depleted I was no longer the same.
One Day At A Time
One day at the time we will finally prevail, We might hope for the best though the worst come forth, never giveup because that's how this life challenges our objectives. Never make the life you live this moment an excuse to your failures because struggle isn't a place you been to, you might be born in poverty yet you stand the expedition of the future you lead.
A Love Poem
Intoxicated By You
Intoxicated by you, flawlessly I thought we could relate Yet your flaws divulged, blind you thought I were yet Vividly I saw through that perfect corny smile, kept me Contemplating were you really hurt before like you told me. Love is blind so they say yet what if I realised your imperfections Then decided not care though to show you, you could be Loved and cared for like you were created to be yet you were not Ready to be… Were you ever telling the truth or just lied through your teeth That you made me believe in love again only to find myself drowning Again through your nobble, I turned my imperfections into noble For you girl, was I ever a fool for love? I guess you'll figure that out.
The Thought I Cannot Complete
The thought I cannot complete, This is the thought I cannot complete, The thought of the life I lead, The thought of the wonderful world I live in.
I'm your son as it's written, I seek answers to know why they killed your son though there ain't no answers but various reasons. Dear forgive me for not believing your existence, Though there are various reasons spoken I some how refus to listen to,
Never confuse my persistence and resilience For desperation, I speak my mind, Spread my heart like nature man deplete and Fail to conserve yet i reconstruct my self
Into oblivion i always considered you'll be, Yet the universe resurrected the fountain, I have never profound you to exist, I deplored you from my reality nor imagination
I orbited this sphere long before mankind evolved, I was inspired by man's ingenious inventions long before the machines were created, now I surround this sphere,
This Is A Letter...
This is a letter, through me I can Envisage the life I never had that you Could live, they say ''this life is a test'' but Peep this, my test isn't what I hope for you to go through.
The Father Of The Land You Are
The father of the land you are, when hope was lost you showed us that freedom exists, Victory you brought to this once parted land many died for, You shown us where there is hatred and struggle could be peace.
He Wasn'T There For Me
He wasn't there for me, he wasn't there to teach me, he wasn't there to guide nor to protect me, He wasn't there to show me what it takes to be a man in this cold world. They say an apple doesn't fall far from a tree, though I doubt it because I don't believe I could walk the same path as he did, Being a man I learned a hard way in this cold world so I could never pass this curse onto my legacy.
Have You Been In This Place
Have you been in this place, Have you been in this place where you're treated according to what you have, where the law doesn't consider the crime you have
One Day At A Time
One day at the time we will finally prevail,
We might hope for the best though the worst come forth, never giveup because that's how this life challenges our objectives.
Never make the life you live this moment an excuse to your failures because struggle isn't a place you been to, you might be born in poverty yet you stand the expedition of the future you lead.
Burden is an illusion we mankind refuse to overcome, most of us are living for the moment,
I guess it's true when they say,
