PAIN

[PAIN] by Owami Hlongwane 

You would never know it,
The constant pain i feel,
Because in the light of day
Its almost isn't real.

Sure, I'll play, I'll laugh,
I'll sing some songs,
But the pain is always lurking
Because its been here all along.

And when the darkness comes,
With it's all- consuming power,
It slowly takes my soul,
Hour by dreadful hour.

But they tell me that I'm strong enough.
They swear that it gets better.
They say "if you can jus hold out and bear this stormy weather"

They tell me, "you'll be happy one day, all you need to do is fight"
But what they seem to forget
Is after each day comes the night.

And so i act along.
Play my part
While this crushing darkness
Slowly breaks my heart.

Owami Hlongwane.
