Musa Ndhlovu

(1994 April 04 / SOUTH AFRICA MPUMALANGA)

Only if


Spotless beauty, how can I
See the beauty you have? For I
Have tried to view all the
Angles, but all I get is the
Spotless beauty.

Toneless sound, how can I
Hear the sound you make? For I
Have tried to listen to all the
Rooms, but all i get is the
Toneless sound.

Loveless place, how can I
Get to the place you're at? For I
Have tried to travel all the
Country, but all i get is the
Loveless place.

Only if you can stop viewing the angles,
Only if you can stop listening to the rooms,
Only if you can stop travelling the country,
Only if you can start looking in your heart,
That's where you can find me.

    Nice poem brother, sometimes we look for things in places they are not in and sometimes we try too hard where as just a simple effort could do the trick.
