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.
