A boy, aged eight
Asked his father a question.
"Was my birthdate,
The cause of your depression?"
The father only watched the boy
Which started to annoy
The child's thoughts
Like PTSD and gunshots.

A boy aged ten
Asked his mother the same question;
She said it was war, then
That it woke his inner aggression.
She said it probably took his soul
And one day again he'd be whole

A man aged eighteen's
asked a question by his parents
"Are you proud to have those genes?
And to be in our presence?"
He didn't have words to describe
The emotions he tried to hide.
He always sought recognition,
Not their judgemental superstition.
He wanted them to be proud,
But as expected, he bowed.

He left their presence, knowing:
That his entire life, he was growing.
To be able to handle the truth,
About his entire youth.
He was never adored or respected
His parents were to be represented
By him, and that was his goal;
NO! I Did not sell my soul

Your reputation, is not my responsibility
My future is
You can't accept that,
And I understand now.
It's time for me to leave,
This toxic representation
Of a Home
I've been partying a lot, and doing drugs, but I only thought of it to enjoy my last few months before adulthood. My parents knew what I was doing, but said nothing until they were spoken to. They never have given a **** about me, only about the way their parenting reflects from me. I should've gotten a job in the military, but they moved the application dates to next year. Last I heard. My father kept it from me, until the day before applications. He told me there's a drug test and I won't pass it, I'll only destroy his name. I stopped smoking **** and popping pills before my exams started, but there's no trust. This was my childhood and I've decided that I've been blind for too long

My demise
I cannot despise
I'll look it in the eyes
And accept my poem dies
I'll soar in the skies
For days
While nobody cries
And everyone strives
After their derives
I'll end up rich and alone some day. I just feel it

Here in South Africa is a man
He's a leader of a political party
His name is Julius Malema
His propaganda and hate speech
Have turned cultures against each other
People from his party are murdering farmers
Farmers who've had those lands for years
Being murdered, because we are fighting land expropriation
Being murdered not like a normal break-in gone bad.
They specifically target the farmers
**** the women,
Torture the family,
****** the family.
A 21 year old boy called Brendin Horner was brutally murnered last week
The week before that an entire family was once again murdered
A baby was put into a hot oven
The family was ******* together
The mother was suspectedly ***** in front of the family
The boys were tortured with boiling water and then beaten to death
This is what's happening in South Africa
Children are being ***** and tortured
White farmers are being murdered for being white
All the ****** suspects make bail
All of them
The worst part is all those suspects make bail with less than $500 to pay
Send help to this country
Our shouts are not heard by our government
More than 20 000 farmers have been murdered
Our people have had enough and are starting to fight back
I'm afraid
I'm so ******* afraid
This will cause a civil war
Send Help.
Please share this
From 1999 till today the rate of farm murders have kept going up, steadily whilst our government ignores it and brushes it off as a normal ****** from a normal break-in. Nothing about a break-in or ****** or torture is normal. Our farmers are being targeted, because they own land that's part of their heritage. Would you abandon all your family has worked for, or fight for it?

When I met you I thought my life would change
I thought my life would have meaning
I thought I was becoming a man

When I met you
My life changed
Not the way I expected though

I stopped doing drugs and smoking
I found love and loved it
I found friendship and cherished it
Friendship betrayed me soon after
Love sent me on my way
I became a party animal
And drug addict

When I met you
I thought my life would have meaning,
But my thoughts were deceiving
I was blind to what I was seeing
And lost myself

Tomorrow I'll send you on your way
And there'll be no way to make me stay
I'll never forget you
I'll never regret you
I'll never miss you
Tomorrow my life will change,
But wasn't that how all this started
Just frightened about leaving home and joining the military

I used to be adored
Now I am abhorred
A lot of people used to like my character and want me around, because to be honest I was an addict and a party animal. Nowadays I stay at home or chill with friends and smoke some ****, but now I'm suddenly hated. Doesn't really bother me, but sometimes it bothers me how quickly others show their true colours

I want her in a bad way
to be pressed together, tight
Flustered and enamored and feeling the time is right-
I want to love her body
and grip her tight to me-
I want her to be rocketing
to hear her moan..
Or lay there with her and simply be.
I want to see contentment in those pretty light-colored eyes
