A Better Lover - Poem by Anele TheAfrikanSon kaMthethungqongqo Potelwa

We All Want To Be Man,
But I Want To Be A Better Man
We All Want To Be Husbands,
But I Want To Be A Better Husband

We All Want To Be Fathers,
But I Want To Be A Better Father
We All Want To Be Sons,
I Have Always Wanted To Be A Better Son

We All Want To Be Leaders
But I Want To Be A Better Leader,
We Want To Achieve
But Me,
I want To That Better Achiever

We May Have Lost
But Still Want To Be A Better Loser,
We Failed,
But Still Want To Be A Better Failer

Bare This
Hear This
And Never Dare It
We All Want To Be Lovers,
But I Want To Be A Better Lover,
