Hope, Peace and Happiness ~ Banele Kubheka

In times of sorrow
When I have given up all
When I wish it were all over
When I see no good in me
Or in the people around me
You give me hope.

When I am at war
Fighting with myself
Fighting all that is right
Fighting against the reality of the truth
My conscience burying its mortification
You give me peace.

When I find no joy in living
Frowning at all the wondrous moments of life
When the most memorable things and characters
Become abhorrent to me
You give me happiness.

And because you do so much for me
You make my pessimism yours
My wars your wars
My woes yours
I offer you my love.
