My Past, My Yesterday

Poem By Carike Klokow

Trying to follow in the footsteps of the person i once was,
i look around and walk around trying to find my cause
I look at the world and it looks back at me,
my eyes are open but i cannot see, what the future holds for me
I walk forward but my future turns into my yesterday,
i walk backward but my yesterday turns into my tomorrow,
i stand still and my today turns into my past

What is left for me to do?
If i walk beside you, i'll fall off the road
if i walk behind you, you'll walk away
if i walk infront of you, i'll get lost
I wanna take your hand but your hand seems busy
i wanna take your arm but your arm is missing
i wanna take your heart but your heart is already taken

So tell me what to do
what point i have to prove
what line i have to cross
what mountain should i move
before i can finally get to your heart

Should i think of the love we shared or the war we declared?

I walk forward into yesterday
i walk back into tomorrow
i run away from today
but my past still stays the same

If i took your hand would you still be able to grab me?
If i took your arm would you still be able to hold me?
If i took your heart would you still be able to love me?

If my past was my tomorrow
and my yesterday my today
would we still be together
or would my past still be in the way?

(afrikaans) Ons Liefde

Die roos is vir jou
ek sal dit nooit berou
Hy ruik so soet
soos die parfuum wat jy dra

(afrikaans) Alweer Verkeerd

Voel asof ek al klaar al die gedigte geskryf het wat ek moes
voel asof ek nogsteeds vir koëls moet koes.
Woorde raak net moeiliker en emosies raak net weg
as daar dan so ding soos liefde is, dan het ek dit definatief nie reg.

(afrikaans) Ek Wou Net Help! !

Nou wat moet ek doen?
Hier aan die ander kant van die muur
Ek kannie verstaan hoekom jy my so uit sny nie
En hier sit ek nou, uur na uur

(afrikaans) Ek Is Net.

En hier sit ek alweer
En skryf oor jou
My hand raak al lam
En my hart nog rou

(afrikaans) Dis Alweer Ek!

So vandag nou lê en worstel ek
Hoekom?
Ek wou jou dan met my alles gehad het
en nou dat jy myne is, nou wonder ek

(afrikaans) Ek Lief Jou Meer!

Ek is so verskriklik lief vir jou
kannie glo ons is saam
is mal daaroor as jy jou arms om my vou
en hoe jy my soen onder die maan!
