My talent

LWAZI MGULWA 1975 (Whittlesea)

Long ago the big trees had fallen
I was hurt to see their branches broken
When they passed
I saw rivers to be crossed

Word of admiration
Was my dedication
They kept concentrating
To what I was expecting

Aye, I consider myself a poet
Poetry is considered creative art
I have grown a creative mind
Where is the origin of this kind?

Zealous I was to have a poetic vision
Love for me was initially scientific
But today it is rather poetic
And artistic

I measured my pride
I still needed a guide
This is a fountain of wisdom
Poetry, my gift.

My name is Lwazi Praiseworth Mgulwa from Kamastone Village; Whittlesea. I am from a family passionate about writing and exploring different phenomena. As a village boy I grew up being taught to live by guiding principles which made me to be who I am now. I was made to understand the situation of my home and the entire family lines, respect, caring, loving, showing mercy and living in hope even in hopeless situations. The beautiful mountains of my beautiful land have brought something for me to write about. I have met good people along the way and have made friends out of them. Writing has become part in my life, a gift from Creator. Even when I would see myself in the wilderness I know that I will never be alone. Jah bless my family who motivated me to move even further than this step. I therefore show some honour and maximum respect unto them equally. more…
