A Prisoner Cries - Poem by Anele TheAfrikanSon kaMthethungqongqo Potelwa

By all means i never wanted to live with humans,
my humanity was a fund not offered to women,
that man were my greatest enemies,
who am I whth such weaknesses?
should I have done a bit better,
the life beyond would have been less bitter,

Now in this cage i sink,
in that i might never rise,
I Sleep,
in that i might never shine,
let it rain with tears,
let it storm with fear,
let it pain with much regret,
I make a confession,
with that i wish to plough an apology,
to all who were victimise by my criminal excellence

    Wishing you were never born? I think we all face that crisis in our lives sometimes. Don't be despaired, where you are now, is where the Lord wants you to be. Stay well... :) (Report) Reply
