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!

Long Winding Road

Since I was born I knew that I had something special
All that needed was direction and skill
It took a long time to get where I am

I went through the harships that made me a man.
All the friends that I had
Left me when I was down
To be devoured by the ground

But I made it and i showed them that I am
Better
This situation has made me stronger than ever

All the madness that went on in my house
Left emotional scars that I could not easily overcome

But I thank the Lord
For the strength, guidance and help
That has shaped me.

And now I know that with my talent I will go far
I know where I came from and I know where I am headed

I am gonna show everyone who downed me
And left me in the gutter.
I'll make a success out of myself
I will glitter under the limelight by the stars
Being watched by the Lord and then Angels above.

Music

Music is a gift of life

To listen to music and feel the tough

For some it is inspirational and others to much

Music can move an individual in a certain way

Especially if a close friend or artist as passed away

It can make you happy when you feel down or mad

We all have our idols

Young and old

There music is inspiring and the word stands out bold

We all love different flavours of music

Whether it is Classical, Rock, R&B or Hip-Hop

I Believe that the music carries a message

And we as people derive a small part of a particular song and carry that piece into our hearts

Music I believe will never die

And it will always live on and form a small part of our lives.

My Journey to the unknown

A journey takes a few students to a small dorp called Clanwilliam.
From campus we assemble in the dead of the night
We catch the first rays of sun
Streaming in the car

We gather in the parking lot outside UWC
In the dead of the night
Mist gathers with icy wind piercing through me
As our journey takes us away from the Cape’s sea

I observe the nature that springs up from the earth.
Beautiful daffodils, roses, lilies and dandelions
Flay out with magnificent might

Songs pop up “ Uptown girl”, “ Queen of My heart”, “ I have a Dream”.
Along the river we see some ducks and swans that are rare in winter
Riaan takes out his camera and starts filming some footage
While Neely and Merrington discuss to us what to look out for.

The blue skies echo from above
The rough ground growls and babbles under the heavy weight of the tyres
We came home after a long journey to the unknown
A journey full of mystique and beauty that leaves me eerie at the end of the day
