    it is a date in time
    not significant to many
    but it is a date
    that is significant to me
    i started on this life's journey
    with hopes for immortality
    exploring all things to be explored
    and walking the path i think God paved
    hoping that there would be no distractions
    from the straight and narrow way
    i haven't strayed too much
    though i've tripped a few times
    but my Creator kept picking me up
    and encouraging me with a smile
    i don't know everything
    but i thought through rhyme
    i'd evoke unacknowledged lessons
    learned in this couple decades' time

    if someone isn't there all the time
    that doesn't mean they don't love you
    there is so much liberation
    in this thing we call "truth"
    time is the best and worst thing
    it heals and hurts at the same time
    and every verse i write
    doesn't always have to rhyme
    there is a God
    and he loves me no matter what i do
    he wipes away my tears
    turns my gray skies to blue
    those times when i swear i need a man
    he comforts me in ways no one else can
    i'll live as if i'll live forever
    and plan as if i'll die tomorrow
    there is too much joy to be found in life
    to be consumed with sorrow
    when i'm at the bottom of the valley
    i know there's no where to go but up
    there will be trials in life
    so i'd better get used to this bitter cup
    if i write something from my soul
    but am concerned about what people think when they read
    and alter my feelings for someone else
    that's not really poetry
    if what i express doesn't sound grown up
    or as mature as i'd like
    i'll accept the fact that i'm not fully grown
    there are times where i'm still a child
    i'll always be me
    and the me will always change
    if i didn't live
    i would stay the same

    that's not all i learned
    but it's all i can say
    so now i'll wish myself and thandiwe
    HAPPY BIRFDAAAYYY!!!!

    happy happy...

    in the inner sanctum, the child in US always come out. it isn't about what others think...it's about what you think and feel is real for you...and truth to the path set before you.

    be true to self

    happy birthday to both.

    One.
