U can kiss ur family and friends goodbye and put miles between u, but at the same time u carry them with u in ur heart, ur mind, ur stomach, because u do not just live in a world but a world lives in u…

I Live, I Love
by Tumisang Ramasu
I breathed, I hoped and I hurt
Best and most important to me being that I hoped.
I loved and got loved back,
I didn’t see it, but I know it is there
Well wrapped with grace it exists
It is my favourite gift I say
And the gift I desire to give more of each day
And I will
Even if it takes my life
I will love
Because it hurts me too much when I do not
I was created to love
And if not doing it, my being is malfunctioning
So bad it might break down
Like a car that never moves
Or a house uninhabited
Surely, it falls apart
Surely, if it feels
It feels empty and alone
So no choice has been left me
But to fulfill the use of my presence
And give it all out
To the world I know
I was just emptying out my heart, but it still remains full.
I have said all that I can say, but it is now that I realize that people hear only what they want to hear, no matter how many times you scream something different into their ears. It is strange, much like human nature. Anyway, I lived today, – Tumisang Ramasu.

And in love,
U rock ma body u soothe my soul,
Ur voice echoes in my ears my heart dances,
The mention of ur name makes my womanhood flow juices
The rhythm of ur walk gives rise to rhythms in my mind
U speak to me and i feel shivers down my spine…
ARE YOU GOOD FOR ME???
The only diamond is the feeling in my heart!!! Worth a fortune but priceless it is…
Some buy shoes and diamonds to feel it,
I look into ur eyes and i feel it.
Some travel the world to experience it,
I have u in thoughts and i realise it.
My conclusion… Love it is, and the rest will fall into place.

Lately I find myself thinking the influence you have had and still have in my life. This has been triggered by the realisation that everytime I apply myself in daily activities and relationships in my life, I always think about you apply yourself in such situations. Subconsciously I adopt the principles and apply same. Its how you interprete being a woman that inspires me. I realise through you that a good woman loves and cares for her children, her family, her husband, her colleagues and friends, the same way she loves and cares for herself. That she must not be afraid to chase her dreams because there are no limits for her. That life is not always black and white. That her home is an extension of herself and should ALWAYS be representative of who she is. I understand that being fearless is not an option, its a must, and that sometimes putting your neck on the line for a greater good is not such a bad thing.
I have my flaws, lots of them. But I don’t stop learning and taking in what I absorb through your influence. It makes me walk tall and know that I have a purpose in life, and will do well no matter what the circumstances!!!
I just thought of sharing this with you today.
U ARE AN OUTSTANDING woman.
I suppose this would have been perfect to have been sent on Woman’s day, but then again as far as you are concerned everyday is woman’s day!!!!
