All my life I have been on a journey
I was in search for refreshment
I ran in circles yet I could not pin point it
Scars of deception took a toll on me

A pit opened ready to swallow me
Worldly nobles could not save me 
I listened because I believed they possess light 
I suffered scars in their hands

They promised me haven an earth
They hold no keys to haven, no access to everlasting life
They blinded me with their philosophies
I suffered scars in their tongues

Without fear they declared his sickness as a calling by my father
Boastfully they claimed my brother’s life to my father
My father is not responsible of his demise
I suffered scars of their pretences.

God does not take delight in someone dying
God has a way to redeem us from the one causing death 
God is love, an abundance of love because his love.
If you knew, you were not going to suffer the scars you suffered.

    I could feel the emotion in this one..We all have some scars but some have been hurt so much that the scars are too deep..God is there and he does love and care like you expressed in your last stanza..I am glad that I chose this one to read today..Sara

    Bongani, God indeed shows his mercy for those scarred by life, but the scars are our map to eternity as a very special person, you capture the sorrow of scars well. Enjoyed reading your poem.
