Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.
Here I am In your mind Nothing but a desire Something you want to acquire Here I am In your mind Thinking, about you Of how much I want you Although I’m nothing but a desire In your mind I want you As much as you want me.
Here I am In your fantasies I’m everything you want Your biggest desire Right here, in your mind Dreaming, about you Wishing, you’ll find the energy To make me manifest in reality Because I can’t wait to have you For I want you As much as you want me.
Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.
Theodore N. Vail
Hi there guys. I’m happy you could join me today. Today’s poem was written to say goodbye to those views of old implemented in my country during the Apartheid Era. For those who don’t know, this was an era when romantic relationships between blacks and whites was shunned.
I’m lucky enough to be a born free. So I can fall in love with whomever I want, without risking the ire of my community. I feel for those who lived in that age of racial segregation and were forced not to follow their hearts if they ever did beat for someone of opposite color. This is why I chose to write this poem. It’s not long at all so your attention span shouldn’t stress.
The color of my skin And that of your skin was not quite akin So it’s no surprise your kin weren’t keen on giving me your hand in marriage, for apparently our love was a sin.
But together, we took a stand against them And eventually they came to understand That the love between me and you Knows not anything about hue.
Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.

Slow and steady wins the race every time. It may not come first but slow and steady always emerges victorious for fast and furious even though it may not come last is so fleeting you’ll end up forgetting the moments which led to you coming first.
