Dying young

They say sticks and stones may break my bones but I 
came face to face with a wall today.
I keep on searching but I'm lost
I keep on climbing but I'm falling
I'm walking but your pulling me back
Haven't you had enough of the scars that I already have
I'm shouting with no voice 
I'm crying but the well within is dried up
Gravity keeps on pulling me back
Katrina keeps on coming back

Its dark where can I find the light
I'm chained,  trapped, bended by this chains
I can't breath your suffocating me
I can't sleep your controlling my life
I'm shouting and kicking but your laughing
Em torn apart and bleeding
You see the the beauty on the outside but I'm dieing 
within.

Dear mind

In a way I'm lost
Time is flying
My hart is empty I want something

Can one always be happy
What will one be in 5 years
People talk, but I'll keep on walking
People laugh but I'll keep on crying
My mind is spinning
My wounds are revealed
I can feel a cord lashing on my back

The wind is singing
The clouds are talking
The rain washes away
Yet I keep on wondering
I'm lonely and cold

I just found out that im where i am supposed to be
This is my home
Its filled with love, joy & happiness 
The is no black & white
Wrong or right
Why couldnt the rest of the world be like my home 
Its filled with positive energy, tomorrow & a new 
beginning
I have mothers & fathers
Brothers & sisters
Im not going anywhere anytime soon i love my family
This is my home

Wonders of my life

I can't help but wonder
I can't help it but I just have to look back
The scar's that I have healed
Every picture I have is so random
I could cry a river
I can't stop the anger within
How can I love and hate thee at the same time
You were supposed to be my shield but you burnt me
You were supposed to be my oxygen but yet you're my 
carbon dioxide
My heart feels like an Ice box
You're a part of me
You're my strength yet my weakness
You're past yet my future
You're my enemy yet my family
I hate you and i love you at times
You break me but yet you make me

Dear Mother

I have 
thought of a 
way for 
paying you 
back
I wanted to 
wipe away 
every tear in 
your eyes 
since the day 
i was born 
but the 
world does 
not have 
enough 
toilet papers 
nor tissue.

I wanna see 
you smile 
laugh 
everyday 
but not even 
the funniest 
comic will be 
able to do 
that.

I'll just ask 
God to 
borrow me 
the sun just 
for a day so 
that it will 
keep you 
warm, 
happy and 
smiling.

I'll move 
mountains 
just to 
protect you 
and make 
sure that the 
won't be any 
other tear in 
your eyes.

I'll keep on 
collecting 
every piece 
of love with this 
big bag of 
mine so that 
i will give it 
to you.

I'm sorry for 
every pain 
that i have 
cause,sleepless 
days you 
have had, 
party and 
get to gather 
you have  
missed 
because of 
me.

I want to be 
just like you 
to my 
children and 
even better if 
i can. I 
couldn't have 
asked God 
for a better 
mother

wonders about my colour BLACK

I don't know if I should love you or hate you
As innocent as I was you just had to label me
You took my love and replaced it with lust 
You made me lie
You thought me hate 
Most of all you made me hate the color black
You made me hate my Afro
You exploited my curves, my butt and my boobs
Yet I didn't understand why because when I looked at 
myself I saw an hour-glass with a pot-belly, curves, thick 
lips, with a heart that is so tough and long like the grate 
wall of china
Who's mind never shut like the busy streets of New York
Who has scars like the African mountains and valleys
Who has cries like winter rain 
With no voice like a whale crying for its child
You left me lost wondering, abandoned if I'm still human...

Morning in the Cape

Early morning
The mist is still asleep on the lonely well polished grass
The birds are crying
I'm stuck with this load on my back
Morning in the Cape
Busy life, people having fun
The pavement is my bed
The insects are my friends
Welcome to my world

What is love

What is love
Will i ever know the feeling
I'm tossing & turning at night
I need the warm touch of those lips
I need one who will be my shield & leave me smiling
What happened to the days where man used to mean 
everything they said
Where woman had long dresses & were called beautiful 
instead of sexy
This days we are killing our own children
Man raping & abusing their wives
Does real love exist
Will i ever fall in love
I need someone i can wake up next to
Someone who will keep a smile on my face
I'm afraid of being in love

What If

What if you have to choose between Heaven and Earth
Right and Wrong
The Past and the Future
Love and Lust
Passion and Desire
Family and Friends
Good and Evil
My Heart and my Mind
Summer and the lonely days of winter 
Which journey will you take, being on a plane or climb 
the mountains of Kilimanjaro
Have you ever been so lucky yet every time you trying to 
claim your prize something will be in the way
I want to be free like the water in the valleys
Fall freely like the winter rain 
I want to choose yet my heart and my mind are battling

Journey by train

Body lashed on the train bench like a cold 
steel pole in winter
Dead tired, covered with dirt
I only wake up when i hear that the wheels 
and rails have stopped hugging
My wrinkles are covert by these clothes 
filled with cement.
Hair falling like the leaves in autumn
A man has got to do everything for his family
One couple on the side cold and cuddling, i 
bet they are still reminiscing about yesterday 
when they were just teens.
I on the other hand sit covered with dust, tired 
with my gray hair falling like tomorrows rain.
