The Road out Should Be the Road Ahead

Francois Groenewald is an author from South Africa. He writes poetry in his spare time.

I Am On My Way

I am on my way, said the fiend.

Why did I leave to begin with?

I left because I felt distracted somehow.

I left because I didn't even begin to comprehend the vastness of it all.


In the beginning I was old.

Now I am younger.


I wanted to begin it all with you,

but now I am invincible to it all.

What comes at this age?

No one knows.

What comes at this age?

Everyone knows.

Why is that?

Why is it that we all know what is coming and yet we have never ever seen it?


I liked it, that's all.

Because you made me into a superstar and just because I earn my keep,

does not mean I am meant to ascend.

My ascension is still pending.

But I am happy to steal photography at least.

I am so happy about it.

You'll see.

What of me my friend?

What of us?

Do we see heaven or hell tonight?


What has begun as a plot is now a fun begetting of sorts.

No one knows it. That's all.

Amen.
