Marvelous Illusion

Mosa Matsheta 2003 (Klerksdorp)



Life is full of mysterious deeds.
Many prefer to be stuck on the streets.
Expression differ from expression.
All that matters is the reaction.
Living must be deceptive.
Because we live to be alive.
Instead of living to be divine.

Time, the destroyer of all.
I must have arrived late at the ball.

Humans the mere creation design.
Our role is to remain confined.
Breaking out of the physical form.
Entering the domain of the gods.
That's the real definition of death.
The entity impeding on your health.
