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…

Success

Success is an achievement for hard work

Through hard work and prayer and trying times

The lord makes it happen

to be blessed with the faith in him and strength

It was possible for me to succeed

Because I believed

To feel happy for what I have done

To cry tears of joy and scream aloud

To be applauded and to be envied by some

To go home and be hugged by your mother

and to see a smile on your father

To look back and be proud

saying I did and that's how

To receive an award for what you have done

Is phenomenal for some

And in the end saying it was fun

Because success is the best result under the sun.

Chameleon

From brown to green
Chameleon changes he’s colour
To suit the cause
To embrace the rainbow nation

He can fit in with all
After segregation
After hibernation
Chameleon walks free

Down the roads
Up the hills
In between robots
Chameleon walks free

The wind howls furiously
Gusts blows him away
Papers fly across the streets
And chameleon walks free

Returning home
To the planks of dirt
Cockroaches observe him with haunted eyes
Chameleon changes colour
Chameleon is free!

Christmas Tree

Everybody loves Christmas
Young and Old
Good and Bad
Weak and Bold
Playing in the snow

Singing jingle bells and giggling in the snow
And from the inside
The smell of dinner that holds

Throwing snowballs at each other
With laughter and flutter
Saying Merry Christmas to your neighbours
Knowing that it is very rare during this time of seasons

For people are not like they used to be
Singing and playing around the christmas tree
Caring and giving
With pleasure, laughter and singing

Christmas I believe is special for the young to see
To laugh and dance with all the other kids
Even when the sun burns out and there is no-one there

Christmas I believe will be there right till the end
For everybody
To give light and
To share
