My First Love (By Goapele)

As summer was ending, you were walking in
it seems my life was falling
but in this season we were friends
six days into spring is where our story begins
you didnt rush a thing
but you knew you would win

i never thought you'd be the only one
i dreamt of fairytales, thats how we begun
but i was waiting for some magical moment
that would prove to me, forever would be fine
meanwhile my first love, was standing first in line

one of the first times i didnt feel alone
is when i was in your arms
you always made me feel at home
we watched the sun rise, cause the night had slipped away
and from then until now, we've been through some different phases
but you love the winter, love the challenge
always managed to think that we would make it

i never thought that you'd be the only one
i dreamt of fairytales, thats how we begun
but i was waiting for some magical moment
that would prove to me, forever would be fine
meanwhile my first love, was standing first in line.

Ode to my Immortal

I sometimes think of you in my solitude
In the empty moments that I keep for myself
I think of the emptiness that I feel
The sadness that I long to leave behind
You didn’t even try, or maybe you tried too much
You certainly doubted too much
I miss our ways
It always strikes me as funny
That now looking back every grey now looks green
And every green now looks white
You hurt me flicked me away like an invisible speck
Cast me aside like an unwanted toy
That’s what I am to you isn’t it?
I bet your happier now
I hear you smile a lot more now
Please accept that I am happy for you
Funny, I never felt like this till you were gone
I’ll be devastated if you didn’t miss me
Do you ever think of me?
This is not what you think.

A Walk Through

Under the Western Sun
Africa and Caribbean come together in a riot
The Talking Drum calls to each of us
Boom! Ba da ba Boom! Ba da ba Boom!
It is the rhythm of my soul
The dance of our Ancestors
Under the Western Sun
The Wind of Old blows into our mists
Calling upon us to remember the forgotten time of the Elders
The days before the tribeless ones
The days of the deep green forest
When its song possessed us always
When the rhythm of the long river possessed us
The days we were enchanted by the stare of the silver moon
Those Years of freedom
The months of Harmony
The Weeks of Grace
The Days of Peace
That Hour of Change
Now under the Western Sun
For the minute we are granted
We walk in our former selves
Take on our former shadows
Exchange our former favours
But just for the minute
Under…The Western Sun.

Difference Between You and I

The difference between you and I
Is that I know exactly what sort of
Monster I am.
I know my capabilities
And the limitations that I place upon them.
I know the villain in me and it breathes
With the hero within me.
Through the penetration of my failures
Came fourth my achievements

The difference between you and I
Is that I can tell you about a moment of real solitude
Alone with myself and at peace with the company
That I kept
I want to live life with deep intimacy
Find truths out of this phoney world
Life in all its glory cries out in its need to continue
Whether I is healthy or I is poor
I is willing or I is dead.

The difference between you and I
Is that I have sustained love after being in love
Although I sit and wait for love to find me,
I do not sit and wait in vain
I want to walk with love and dance in the excitement that it provides
And still dance even when the beat has changed
I accept that the beat must change, must transgress
Must evolve
I accept the risk that comes with no guarantee.

The difference between you and I
Is that I understand that as time progresses
I will learn to forgive the things that cannot be undone
I will learn to be at peace with
Yesterday, and embrace tomorrow as it becomes today
And slowly fade away into yesterday.
I have accepted the winds of transformation
That has swept through my life and no longer
Frown at the scars that have been left permanently behind.

That is the difference between You and I.
 
Antonia Anthony
