Her ~ Banele Kubheka

Her eyes
Her nose
Her ears
Her mouth

Her smile
Her body
 Her soul

Her eyes
Betraying none of her thoughts
Her opinions
Nor her feeling

Her mouth
Uttering words that made no sense
Words that have deeper meaning
Words that have passion
A passion to entice.

Her smile
Deceiving and sly
Fooling any chance taker
Harassing them.
Yet cute and inviting
True to certain entities
To certain extents

Her frown
Voicing her woes
Her dismays and disappointments
Her broken promises and unfulfilled dreams
Yet subtle
Not loud like her grin.

Her grin
Her happy place
Her haven
Her dreams-come-true
Her hopes
But like a blue moon
Seldom does it occur.

Her soul
Her personality
Her character true to her spirit
Protective yet innocent.
Dependent
Dependent on the truths of others
Acceptance of peers
The care of everyone
Mostly the love of those closest to her

Yet she asks for nothing
Her generosity exploited
Little does she say for she knows
Pride comes before a fall
Thus she basks in humility.
