My heart started beating fast
I wished I could grab it
And take it home with me
I wished I could just grab it and run

It looked so beautiful and interesting
I started opening pages
I was so excited to open the Book of Proverbs
I was excited to study it

My hands started sweating
My body boiled with joy
I felt peace and eternity
I felt God right on the inside of me

I wanted to run, run and never ever return
I hate this world and itโ€™s so wild
The feeling of owning one felt amazing
I was about to take it and pay for it
Then I realised it was written in Afrikaans

So I left it there because
I didnโ€™t understand the language
I then realised how devastated I felt
I felt broken and a part of me was missing.
