Reaching for the same ending

Reaching for the same ending.


I hate running away from my people, leaving bloody footprints behind, for I've been on this road far too long.

My path towards this present moment came not from a smooth tar road but that of forgotten potholes

But I Love this road, it's an idea on its own, a path taken by the creators of knowledge so the rest can believe in the created.

It's not for the faint hearted nor those who just want to try. It's the one road most people fail to understand.

It demands a heart that'll be there for a soul on its own unique mission, a mind that won't be fooled by the word created and a body that can carry on when others turn back.

The signs I see are no different from those who choose to take the red carpets.

It is just knowledge created by mankind for themselves.

Ooh, but a different understanding of what life feels like. You get to live while they act like they are living.

There is nothing left to learn about mankind but the sheer acceptance and understanding of themselves.

Mankind can be the enemy of truth and an alien in their own world.

Swollen ankles and burning knees I have made it through. The pain was and still is worth it.

I have the eye of terror for I have seen the worst in my people, leaving the lot in fear.

I have a heart bigger than the sun and I will hold the universe for you.

I am Human like you and an animal like that we found living with us on earth.

I hate running so let's walk and talk about life.

At the end of this line take a deep breath and start living with me. You are the finish line, Cause the rest of my life is in your eyes.

    Bhekumuzi, first welcome to PnQs.

    Secondly, what a fabulous, inspiring piece.
    We all have our own paths to choose from and sometimes those paths bring us difficulty and sometimes they bring us luck etc but they all take us to the same place.
