SONGS From THE soundtrack of MY forthcoming NARRATIVE FILMS

Giver Taker

Have you been questioning.....Who Am I ?  What Is God's Purpose for my life?

This song came through on my journey of self-enquiry - many light years ago.


Opening Chant:

Ngifuna ukuthanda (I want to love)

The Universe supports action - not Thought.


Verse 1:

You look at me and in my eyes

You sense my soul, you begin to cry

But as I speak, you want to know

How can I be so sure of my tomorrow


You say: I don't see you praying

I cry: I don't show my faith

You sigh: What keeps you believing?

And I reply: One day I'll die, but I know why, I live today...


CHORUS

You know I'm not what you see

I'm nothing but a Possibility

My Spirit free each day I live

Gone is me the Taker, Now it's time to Give

No I'm not what you see, 

I'm Nothing but, a Possibility 

My Spirit free each I live,

Are we just Takers... or were we born to Give?


Verse 2

We look around and in this world

We sense the joy and we feel the hurt

I move to change the pain I see

But as I try, you react to me


You say: I don't see you praying

I cry: I don't show my faith

You sigh: What keeps you believing?

And I reply: Someday I'll die, but I know I have lived today...


CHORUS

You know I'm not what you see

I'm nothing but a Possibility

My Spirit free each day I live

Gone is me the Taker, Now it's time to Give

No I'm not what you see, 

I'm Nothing but, a Possibility 

My Spirit free each I live,

Are we just Takers... or were we born to Give?

Little Girl

Channeling the pain from a personal experience of exploitation by a trusted adult on a child. This is my call to action to survivors ... you are not alone. 


Verse 2

Little girl

Staring in the mirror

You’re a woman now but

Still you feel the shame you shiver

In sadness now

Just thinking how

The fathers we trust with our very lives 

and the men who claim us as their wives

They could all be guilty

And the little girl feels… filthy

All her life.


Chorus

Pretending everything’s fine

No they wouldn’t believe me

They’d think that I was lying

I didn’t tell but it hurt me

When I was a child

She cries….


Shh.. just you be strong 

You’re my little little little angel

You did no wrong

Just you be strong

Go on cry (Kala!), cry (Kala!), 

Let your river of pain run dry

Cry, cry, let your river of pain run dry

Live so your beauty inspires the world

You have just got to be

Strong for thee

Other mother, lover, little girl

(Mama, s’thandwa, ntombazana…)


your thoughts...

How did this song make you feel?
