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

What I Did Wrong In Myself

I begged him to come

I begged him not to

I let him stay

and go

I let them see me naked

and developed my heart for them

I let them speak with me

in times of trouble

I let them guide me

in times of need


And they destroyed my arms

and laid bare their weapons

and made a mess of my dreams

Or did they?

They developed skin

and all they could say was tinge this and tinge that

So what did I do wrong?

Nothing

I loved

That's it.
