Vicky

I do not have the words to describe the uniqueness of you
You are the voice in the wilderness
Crying out to me
Not to just me alone
Still you speak directly to my soul
I am moved too places I have not seen
Experiences foreign to my imagination
I taste the dirt beneath your fingertips
I am satisfied
And yet I wish to consume more
You drag me down
Yet I am lifted by the brilliance of your thought
I sit in the centre of the darkness illuminated by your light
Each word written with purpose 
I cry and laugh
I am shocked and desgusted
I rip at my chest in anguish
I feel the pain of those I do not know
How is it that I live in a world without justice
I was unaware I was part of the problem
Until I read your words
A voice calling out from the wilderness
A strange now familiar voice
I clap and clap and clap
For you my STANDING OVATION 
Your words your words your words
I am moved
Thankyou 

Dedicated to Vicky Tsiluma the Poem says it all.

    Wow Richard! I…I love it. Thank you. Thank you for your encouragement, not just to me but to others you keep building up with your wonderful words. But mostly thank you for your positivity. You make the thought of a light at the end of the tunnel seem possible. Through your work, the good balances the bad and for that I applaud you. Vicky.
