Mistaken identity


I'm not the same person
that i use to be
i have forgotten who i was,
for me nothing works for good
in the world of ordinary dreams
but i know it now
it would have been a journey
of common dreams and same roads, pity
i have overgrown-ed earthly fellows
i know now, we just two mountains
with a distance in-between that
will never be one
i'm sorry but i tried and
i'm sorry that i tried.
I will always remember you,
my friends and broken lovers
it was a cloud of mistaken identity.

    Imnandi inkondlo yakho, it reminds us of our childhood friends and the trail of broken hearts many of us left behind, as ukhula empilweni kufika isikhathi lapho khona uqonda ukuthi ubuhle bezintombi nezinsizwa kungamabibi nje omhlaba, into ongeke uyenze lutho....yes u have outgrown that maybe if you feel ngaleyo ndlela...well penned poem Melikhaya.
