PRIDE, AND PREJUDICE
PRIDE IS HOW IT BEGIINS:
He comes once around in my lifetime - take note,
He will turn everything upside down and on its head,
He will show you how pure it feels to make love to him,
He will give you his body and soul - no holding back,
He will start to love you with a love you've never witnessed before,
He will throw emotions towards you with fire in his blood and fire in his emotions,
He will show you how complicated one person can be - its no simple voyage,
He will show you how a hardcore introvert lives with silence being voice to you,
He will write poems about you and leave it by your bedside table.
He will flourish as long as you are happy with him and him with you.
He will let you know you've met your match - dont come with your bullshit hey.
He will not be afraid to show you how he cries and shed tears of sadness.
PREJUDICE IS HOW IT ENDS:
A COMMON TALE IN THE WASTELANDS OF CAPE TOWN:
And now for the most important one above all,
This is what he will swear by (cross my heart and hope to die),
HE IS NOT AFTER YOUR MONEY BUT YOUR HEART FROM START,
Everything of him, it will be yours even if yours isn't he's.
And dont be a fool like some that regret losing this/their beautiful Filipino boy,
Because you looked past what his heart's good intentions,
And if you love someone nothing else really matters...
Although naive but don't let other's advice be there sword that kills you;
Dont give in to your's and other's prejudices against this boy (its not fair),
HE IS POOR, HE IS COLOURED/MIXED RACE OR HE HASN'T GOT A GOOD EDUCATION,
Its post apartheid/1994 in Cape Town , Its ok to have a mixed race or black boyfriend.
Just be above the bigotry and nastiness (dont be afraid to chose him),
And never let regret forever haunt you with those two words - WHAT IF?
The colour of his skin and the lack of money in his pocket - it doesn't matter,
Choose love above all and don't let that boytjie go don't be a fool,
Racism and judgement destroys souls some never recover from it.
For as you destroy people of pure hearts you invite yours to condemnation.
AND SURVIVAL THE BOY ENDURES:
Coloured/brown/mixed or black boytjie I know one day you'll find whatever you looking for,
Your heart will gather such goodwill on your life and above all never change!
You are brave and endured enough but remember you still here and still fighting,
Your heart is still there in the same spot and it will never fade.
