Bright future ahead of me

At first I never knew
Never knew what life could offer
When I failed my matric, I thought it was the end,
The End of Life.

I went on trying to find myself.
Went on trying to finish, but still that didn’t work in my favour.
Went to TVET thought things would be better, but no.
No ! No ! Not at all.

I had no one by my side
I had to stand by myself
Find the way out because it wasn’t easy
I wanted to call it the end

Wanted to drop out but I couldn’t
I couldn’t because my performance resisted
The future was so promising
Started imagining myself as a Manager

I saw the bright side of the future
Black child no matter what the situation
Never think of giving up
A future delayed is not a future denied…
