»Words in my rear view mind«

by Lerato Jahder Mollomabina, January 2, 2013

Let me tell you a story.
Don't feel sorry.
Glory to him but I was angry,
Maybe hungry.

It hurt,
Maybe I went too far,
Damn! With all due respect though,
I'm not trying to be bad.

Lord why are you making your presence difficult to believe?
what's your point?
That's enough
I get it now,
I'm suffocating now.

I felt a vain pulling in my brain.
With such pain.
I ran and joined the fast lane.
Thought I heard somebody calling my name.
Is that you Lord?
Avail yourself,
Why am I talking to myself?

This is crazy,
My eyes are watering.
I'm feeling dizzy,
a blackout.

Then I realized that I was shouting so loud silently.
Maybe not thinking,
But uttering "words"
In my rear view mind.
