Looking Back: Journey to the Past

Looking back
I realized that the things
I went through was worth it

Looking back
I realized how I have grown
As a person

Looking back
I remember
Nights of tears and heartache
Of loneliness and despondency

Looking back
I realized
That not many make it to the top

Looking back
I realized
That I had to mature quicker
Than my peers

Looking back
I realized
That one
Has to be strong
In this cold world

Looking back
I realized
That friends come and go
But God
Will always be there

As I close my eyes
I realize
That I have been blessed
God has saved me from eternal damnation

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!

  7.     

Miles to go before I sleep

Everywhere I go
All the faces that I see
All the smiles of wonder on the faces
That I greet

Nothing in this world can ever
Replace this feeling side of me…

Miles to go before I sleep
I’ll travel far and wide
Over land and seas
To reach my destiny…

I’ll see the sun rise in the east
And then settle in the west…

I’ll watch the sun shine
With all it’s glory
She is immortal
She is tie immemorial
She’ll be with me till she burns out

We are one
I’ll watch the moon glisten brightly
As twinkle stars enclose me with their embrace
Somewhere over the rainbow
All my dreams will come true!

I will hear echoes of joy
Echoes of love
On the waves of the rushing seas

A new day has come
And I’m not going to back down now
I’m going for my dream
Yeah! You better believe

It’s hard to say goodbye
To the people that have come into my life
They will always remain in my heart
As I sit on the plane
And make ready to depart

The future is mine
Never will I back down again

No more tears of sadness
But tears of joy

I’m very happy for the first time in my life! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

One chapter has concluded
Another one as begun
It’s like a never ending journey to reach the sun.

I’ve packed my bags
“ it’s time to leave”
Never has this feeling of joy felt so great
Inside of me

I am all grown up now
I am not that little boy anymore…

I’’ spread my wings and fly
It’s time to rise
I will not look back as I head towards new skies.

You’ll hear my echoes
In the calmest of seas
You’ll sense my presence
In the warm winds.

I am free
And I am at peace.

Goodbye my friends
Until we meet again
And if we don’t meet again
Then goodbye from lee your loving friend!
 
Lee John Siebritz
   
 

   
   
 

  8.     

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!
