Poetry

Has anyone ever written you a poem? Well, until the other day, I haven’t had this privilege!

I shared the first posted picture from my modelling stint the other day and my good friend Jay Jay responded in poetry and I thought I would share it with you today 😊

A Positive Poem for the Lady in Positive Pants

Strength.
What is in you is stronger than what they see.
I see stories written in the palms of your hands.
Relating of struggle, strength and victory.

The lines accentuating your feet
Tell stories of journies traversed.
Tears that attempted to form rivers but above all achilles.

If ever you doubt yourself,
May nostalgia take you back on a journey.

The ghost of struggles past

show you what you overcame to be here.
May that which tries to strip you of your smile
be less than the strength which flows in you.

Thank you for your kind words, Jay! This poem is beautiful😊

The Yearning

Most English teachers will tell you how difficult it is to read for pleasure. Literature is work, something we read to find deeper meaning and even simpler ways to convey that which we encounter.

How refreshing it is to find a novel that engrosses you; a truly engaging, beautiful and authentically South African story. Every page was worth the read and it was bittersweet to put it down at the end.

Ticked

“When I’ve ticked all the boxes, I’ll be happy,” she resolved.

But what if happiness lies in the journey and not the boxes ticked?

Exposed

“But then you’ll see,” she said, hands protectively over her heart.”I want to see,” was his cryptic response, his eyes appealing, begging to see what was lying beneath the protective barrier.

And so she shakily lifted her hands from  the most precious part of her. He saw it…

 She could not read his expression as he turned around, without a word, and walked out of the room leaving her confused and exposed…

Dust

“I want to be a better writer. Help me,” She pleaded. She wanted her words to touch someone. She wanted someone to connect with her ramblings.

The best advice she gave was no different to words of wisdom for the walk of life. “Keep writing… reading also helps with that.” 

And so she must keep scribbling on the page as best she can. Keep turning the page until the ink dries and soon, they will connect…
