  5.     

Quiet Waters

Memories of happy times
Flood my head
As the boat rocks on and on…

Kids are laughing
Kids are smiling
Enjoying the blue skies
As the wind angrily
Blows the waves against the boat.

A moment of stillness fills my mind
As I think of Cape Town
My birthplace, my home, my life.

I can’t help but feel sad
As flashbacks of the past
Pop into my mind.

Watching these kids being happy
Makes me feel sad
As it takes me back
When that was once in my life.

I am happy where I am
I am happy in my soul
But the little boy’s life
Was cut off so soon.

Nights of terror.
Nights of the unknown
That little child
Had to mature quickly
Or die young.

The boats jerks
Kids plague me for a picture.
I smile though the pain
I smile through the heartache

They are happy
I am sad
I wish I could be like them
But that time has passed me by.

As we pass the
Last turn off
I feel a sense of peace.
Maybe it is my late grandmother
Speaking to me.

“Forget the past”
“Move on with your life”
“So that you can be happy”

I have to follow the star in my heart
For years its light has faded
Over the years it has dimmed
I hope it returns for me to move on…

Again, the boat jerks
My stomach turns
I feel my inside trying to come up.

But soon we arrive at our destiny.
I say goodbye to the mountains
To the trees
I am thankful to God that
I have lived another day.

And so my journey continues…

Peaches and Cream

My girlfriends are peaches
She tastes of cream
Her curvaceous body
Sends wild vibrations within me

I embrace her
Her touch tingles me
Never has any women tasted like this to me
Her cream tops the jelly

I love desert
As she sets it out for me
I have to eat more
Her yolk provokes me

By the time we are finished
The peaches are all done
The cream has been tasted
And so has she by my love.

The War in Iraq

I lie on the bed

And put on the telly

The newsreader declares the following

“ The war is over”, yet the fight goes on

I see on the telly

People dying and children crying

Bang! Bang! Bang! Fires one soldier

Damn! Damn! Damn! Says another bolder

The war creates stress, anxiety, fear and death

I see soldiers eighteen years of age and older

Careful aiming is essential to stay alive

Because if they make a mistake it could end their lives

I see the parents crying on the TV

“ Why did you take my son and not me”?

People running around madly and falling to the ground

The war in Iraq creates anxiety inside of me

I feel sorry for the children and parents of the deceased

Once the war is over the after affects begin

Soldiers are plagued by the nightmares of the past

At the end of the day it affects the present day

I hope that the war will end

Because it is silly to lose one’s life over something stupid

The enemy is death

Your friend is life

It’s your choice to see which one’s right!

Africa

What has happened to you?
Your people are dying
Yet the well-off people say you are doing just fine
That there is change

Yet there are still slaves
What was beautiful is now gone
And we are bearing the consequences of man
All the trees and homes that were destroyed
Won't be recovered and forever be toiled

Will there be ever Peace?
Will there be enough food?
Is there proof that there will be a roof for your children
That does not have a place of fruit to chew

They hurt you
But you will reform
Someday when there is no man and guns washed away by the storm
Africa will heal
That I believe
and your vengeance will destroy all...
