Waylin Van Wyk Poems

  • 1.  
    Words struggle to get out of my mouth
    I do not know why
    Is it because of fear
    Or the fact that I’m shy
    ...
  • 2.  
    There is someone who I wish
    Who could hold me dearly
    The memories I had with him were rich
    His spirit is always near me
    ...
  • 3.  
    No mountains are too big
    For me to climb
    No oceans are too deep
    For me to dive in
    ...
  • 4.  
    They say no man is an island
    But what about me?
    The four corners are silent
    Isolation is killing me

    I felt the weight of oppression
    suffocating me
    ...
  • 6.  
    Make-up and jewelry
    Are useless to me
    My worth and my attraction

  • 7.  
    In a world filled with darkness
    He came as the Light
    The fate of man were disastrous
    But His love for humankind shone bright
    ...
  • 8.  
    Today,I am tired of his hands
    He used them to hurt me
    I tried to calm his anger
    But each time I failed miserably
    ...
