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.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
