I WANT YOU TO LIVE by MIHLALI SONGCAKA

Poem

I want you to live
I want you to feel
I want you to sense

And not just exist
Walking on Earth
Next to your soul
Not even recognizing
It

I want you to
Feel the sunshine
And your smile being pure
Feelings being pure
That crumb and drop
Of happiness inside you

And not the emptiness and darkness
That disguises itself in
comfort and happiness
Showing the purity
Of darkness

I need you to live
And not succumb to death
Even though death is your
Biggest thrill

I need you to live and not just
Exist and fantasize about suicide
