Beneath this glittering face

Written by: Mpho Leteng

i've already bruised my head with ample thinking;
i waded through enough stress,
beneath me i died a silent death.

i've seen beyond where eyes could see!
i placed my foot where no other man would,
i cried from the depths of struggles and sufferings
i reached maximum limits of living but camemback naked.

beneath this glittering face lies emmerse pain,
the pain of unfulfilled dreams
strikes of generational curses
broken heart internally bleeding

beneath this glittering face a heart is full of scars;
suicidal thoughts pseudocodes written,
logical steps will indeed be taken...............for me to die or perish
for the dead seem more fortunate than us the living
