By Tarryn Booysen
To dream an impossible dream from the unedged corners of my soul
Pyramids of unfulfilled wishes still looming between prayers
A lustful heart reaching out to what should have been
A dream never meant to come true
He existed somewhere between nostalgia and deja vu
She’d put his name out into the universe but he never manifested
He became a distant memory and she became unstoppable.
Her words cherished by her peers. The world changed as she breathed daily.
Mentally and physically broken yet picking up pieces of those still fighting.
Amandla! She cheers in hopes of being heard
She was never made to be boxed, shackled or controlled
She became the change, she became the world she longed for.
All things subsided.
She became the dream.
