Imagination & Other Poems ~ Uvir Govender

Imagination


Can you imagine what could happen,
if you could dream anything.
Though it seem hasty and utterly crazy,
Why don't you just try.

Then you thank that star that made it all come true,
Cause what you want is coming soon.
right here......right now,
Just dream like a crazy cartoon.

If you could fly to the highest mountains,
or dive below the deep blue sea.
It all just lies in your heart and soul,
to live your life so free.

The world is truley incredible,
only if you let you mind explore.
And never look back at all,
just let your mind go wild.


Nightfall Sky


A sight all girls want to see so bad,
yet never experience its true beauty.
Though never to drives them mad,
for those who see is incredible to witness.

Rare to the naked eye,
but grips one till the day they die.
Never in ones life can see it all,
till you see those shining stars.

Many go to see its mighty wonders,
near and far...high and low.
But has never really seen this,
the thing that brings a smile to my face.

Many ask what's so great to see,
yet they don't know its purpose.
Just a cycle on can witness everyday,
Is the simple nightfall sky.


That Special Someone


The modern generation loves the world of technology and all,
however is that really special to someone's heart?
Is it just a myth to find that someone to call,
or could that fate become a reality to one's art.

All I know is she has a incredible smile,
that makes million die from doing her thing.
To the way she moves from side to side,
makes my heart go fast as a lightning .

The way her soft brown hair feels by my touch,
can make a baby panda feel like a ruff fluff.
And when you look into her hazel brown eyes,
you just get so my love to be tough.

Many think she's too good to be true,
it could be true but its not.
Cause I've seen her and shes my mew,
the one who is seen as not alot.

But all I can say is one simple phrase,
she is my special someone.

Pryaska Goorhoo ~ "Far Above the Milky Way"

Far above the Milky Way                                                                                                                                                             People wanted the will to fight,                                                                                                                                            A beam of hope, a little golden ray.

Through dusk and through day,                                                                                                                                            Silent winds blow throughout the night,                                                                                                                                  Far above the Milky Way.

There is no yesterday, tomorrow or today.                                                                                                                       Violet horizons with that one golden flying kite.                                      …

Two Poems ~ Waseem Asmal

Tanka

A bright burning flame
glows through the darkness
and melts the icy cold
of the Winter's Night.

ROME

Rome, mighty and at the
height of its power,
ruling the whole world

but now...

Time has seeped into
the cracks and crevices of
the once mighty Rome
breaking it's walls
and leaving it crumbling in the dust.

Him and I ~ Aphelele Buthelezi

This is a story about him and I
How we both felt broken
and both our truths were unspoken.
How we loved hard before
and both our hearts were sore.
How our hearts needed to heal
and why we wanted to kill -
kill every ounce of pain that cut beneath our skin
and how this apprehension made us kith and kin
This is no customary story - not one with a knight and shining armor and a fairy godmother
But one that has two people entering a rehab from love together just to heal each other.
How he changed reality into his dream
and all he did was write
How she wanted to hold him
and put all the pieces back together so he can be alright
She chases and she falls
From one love to the next
She runs and she trips
From one ship to the 'best'
And when she finally felt at home
It was as though he was loveblind
As though her love to him was just a fiend
We live in a pretentious world -
a world where the truth looks like a lie
a "hello, how are you?" Feels like a goodbye.
Where an "I …
