Sentiment, my love
And acknowledgment of the precious complex
Of her heart, and her gentle soul
Not only does she cease to impress,
She has acquired your every breath
For the wellbeing of our forever.
What’s it to an ungrateful being
To be better than your true self.
To show the better you and
To keep the better, you.
Be that for her
Or let her go,
For someone who is willing.
– Rachel Thandolwenkosi Mpofu
