My Broken Leaf
Poem By Helgard du Preez
Thy now I stand with grief,
the pain has shook my heart,
I am a tree without a leaf,
all the roots drained, I have no part.
The sun is shining, no more,
the rain overflooded my veins,
the lightning strikes without a roar,
split into pieces, with no remains.
What I have thought was the beginning,
was indeed the end,
I have longed a life with meaning,
How will I ever mend?
How can mother nature be so cruel?
She promised me fruit for life,
call me naive, call me a fool,
you have cut me out with a knife.
I felt the unbalancing nature,
did she find a new seed?
Now who will provide my cater?
I cry out to you, I am in need.
I ask mother nature to be honest with me,
where do I stand? , be forward be straight,
where is my future, what do you see?
I want to carry your fruit, is it too late?
