Hello, I have been a poet for the last 25 years. My poems are based on real life experiences. Poetry allows me to express myself. Besides writing poetry, I also enjoy pencil sketching in my spare time.
Published: 2011 – The Ground’s Ear Contemporary Verse from Southern Africa Sorrow understands a painful life All it recognizes is fear and strife Why does the world hate imperfection? I will never be part of its collection But, how can I end this intense bind With a solid heart and sound mind? I believe the heart generates hope In countless ways to help us cope When will the world understand? That all I need is a helping hand The pain became too much to bear Why was there no one to really care? A selfless being could not be found In the world I searched around A wall of protection I had built To hide the ever increasing guilt Of not being the person they want All I became was someone to taunt To the heavens I began to look For what the world unkindly took It was there I found freedom at last All that remained was my distant past
