Masakhane Chilundu

Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

I am a DAUGHTER, a grand-daughter, a sister, a niece, a cousin, a friend. I AM A PARTNER, a student, a YOUNG woman, a GROWN WOMAN. I am confident and SCARED, terrified and EXCITED. I am LOVING and caring, THOUGHTFUL and hopeful. I am SICK and tired. I am SHY and friendly, and careful and careless. I am BROKEN and whole. I am MISUNDERSTOOD, misguided and MISLEAD. I am HARD WORKING and DETERMINED but a little scared on the inside. I am NEAR but far, neither DEAD nor ALIVE. I PRAY to the MOST HIGH and cry my tears. I don't wish upon stars and dwell on dreams. I LISTEN to others who WON'T LISTEN TO ME. I walk on EGGSHELLS, I walk on FIRE. I believe in PASSION and TRUE LOVE, I love you and push you away. I WANT you but NOT so CLOSE. I am EVERYTHING and NOTHING. "I am the colour of fresh bread...the colour of winter leaves..."
