Swimming In The Sea

Summertime is here
And it is time for me to swim
Bodies of all shapes and sizes
Will be evident in the sea

Swimming in the sea
Provides closure of the winter for me
After being secluded for a few months
It is time to embrace the sea

I hope the sea will not be full
As I would really like to swim
The tingle of water through my feet
Provides peace for me

My body becomes accustomed to the sea
As the heat linger on over the beach
I am engulfed by the waves
“ Ooops…” I am far back in the sea

I see various shapes floating in the sea
They take up all the space
I can hardly breathe
It is hard for me to swim

There are bodies all around me
“Fok! Hoe kan ‘n mens so swem”
Swimming in the sea provides solitude for me
Swimming in the sea sets me free!

Through The Rain

I will make it once again
I will stand up from the rain
I will prosper once again

And each time I fall
I will stand up tall
Those who watched on
As I was out in the rain
Who did not give me a place to stay

May the lord look down on your sins
And deal with you one day

But I know life is to short to dwell on past events
I need stand up and gather my strength
For the fight is yet to come
And I’ll be ready to take it head on
With the Lord by my side

He will guide me through the night
He’ll protect me from the cold
And shrug off death
As he knocks on by my door

To keep me safe
As I wonder through the rain
Knowing I will stand up again

Leaving Home

I pack my backs
“It’s time to go”
Never has this feeling of joy felt so bold

I am all grown up now
Without mommy and daddy by my side
I can make my own decisions now
I am leaving home

Goodbye to my parents
As they wail seeing the back of me
It’s hard
They hope if they will ever see me
I wonder if I ever want to see them again

Europe will great
It will brighten my mood
It will take all the marks away
That the old regime as left in my way

At least there I’ll be South African
And not clustered in a group
At least I’ll have peace of mind
While I try to recover from remnants of the past

Adulthood, flight
I’ll spread my wings and I’ll overcome my obstacles
It’s time to rise
It is time to fly

Goodbye South Africa
I hope I’ll never see you again!

Preparing Dinner

I watch the pot on the stove

Water is overspilling

The rice is cooking

With bubbles galore


I smother chicken in sauce

Sauce that is made up of green pepper, black pepper and onions

Accompanied with that is the All in one spice.

Watch out for the toilet paper


The spices start talking

The chicken gets fried

The smell of breyani echoes through the house

I chop the potatoes as well as the carrots


I open up McCain veggies

And distribute it with the food

I put more spices in and the McCain veggies

Gets assimilated into the food


The pot is filled with colours

The steam fills the house

The brown chicken starts talking to the yellow potatoes

So does the carrots

The rice is strained

It rises to the core

I use tastic rice

Because it is the best out of them all

I set the table with plates

And it is ready to be filled

One by one they get dished out

First the rice (centered) and then the potatoes and chicken

Ice cream is served as desert

Coca-Cola is poured into glasses

The sweet taste bubbles in my mouth

The hot food burns my mouth

While the cold drink soothes its pain

I smother tomatoes and onions with vinegar

And serve them next to the food

The sauce gives the tongue extra kick

And goes down with a good drink
