As fast as I could As far away as I could get I stand breathing heavily And run again Tears stream down my face All the pictures vivid The intimidations The frustration The competition Favouritism, secretive process I want to get away As far away as I can I thought I had a purpose I had found a life-a part of my dream I run away The wind through my hair Sweat and tears on my brow The trauma, the bleakness Darkness Then I see a light The moon high up in the sky I stop look up and feel it I am empowered I feel elated I am here I have arrived I stop running

Hey thanks very much, i was just going through some of my poems and it really looks like the story of my life. There was a period i wrote when i ws going through things and all of it is there. I need to organise the pieces and make a story of it. Thanks hey.

It's good to see you flowing like this again. I have arrived. I stop running from the past that can never catch pace with me For I am a voice of the future.

Just my little addition :)

from today i live out of my imagination i am more than my yesterday tomorrow i plant a new seed nothing that lies behind easy nothing that is ahead real my within is all i have today Napo Masheane

Trust you to make me laugh. Thanks hey, wouldnt have done this without you. No pun intended but if there was never a reason for you to come back home when you did, we would never have bumped into each other and none of this would have happened. Thanks very much! i owe you.
