POEM

Sunday Observer - - YOUTH SECTION - By Welile Mahlalela

Look­ing at your mir­ror What do you see? Is that all you can be? I guess you need to take an­other look Look care­fully

Look into your mir­ror There's no re­flec­tion now! Do you see a doc­tor? A nurse? A teacher? A woman or man if suc­cess? Don't be a vic­tim A vic­tim of your own stu­pid­ity Sorry! In this world there is no room for fools

Buck up and work Work for your fu­ture Be st r ong, hard and some­time bold Sur­vive through it all. Noth­ing must keep you down Noth­ing must keep you away Be fo­cused, stay fo­cused Grab hold your fu­ture with both hands See your vic­tory com­ing Em­brace your fu­ture

Be all you can be As for me I walk with arms out stretched. Grasp­ing through each source of light at the end if the tun­nel

My flames burn as I wait to ex­press my­self Wait a few years, a day or two. There's more in life for me to do that. That's how I see my re­flec­tion. Re­flec­tion

RE­FLEC­TION
