Musa Ndhlovu

(1994 April 04 / SOUTH AFRICA MPUMALANGA)

After All, Open Your Eyes


After all, what I wanted
Was turned to what I hated.

Mixed up emotions with feelings
Confusion, Painful, unbearable feelings.

I look for direction but no way

How came can I lose love and
Find love from another place?

Why can't I just have one lover?
Why do you have to go?

Can't you see that I love you?

Look at me, is this not love?
I must have been inlove with you.

But you where blind to see that,
Open your eyes, and look around.

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
