Honesty

Written by: Tshifhiwa Given Mukwevho

Hard times taught me how to walk.

Toes of my feet grew sore, slowing my climbing
But since the sacred duty of progression
Kept fondling my ear I had to keep going.

Humble ideas and thoughts
Brought about principled ideals
To be established.

In the wilderness I met
Old sages who unconsciously revealed to me
That longing is a pain concealed.
And I had no choice but 
To agree with them.
