Natalie du Toit

I just read about: Natalie du Toit

stories of strengths are always found blossoming from tragedies beyond the known & accepted... History and every day shows - victories are in the making all around us.. how each of us will respond to a tragedy (our understanding of it) will define who we are and where we will allow that incident to take us.
will it become an element which eliminates or one which accelerates?
I always look back and wonder, if it weren't for the experiences i labeled bad! would i have become the person i am... would these characteristics - some which i love, and some which i don't, have manifested in this particular manner.

We read of so many success stories... but i wonder of the unsuccessful one's... no one writes about those. And who decided on the label... when does your or my story become a success? and until then, is there no uniqueness in our unsuccessful stories of struggle?

ride it (verse)

ride it (10th & 11th Nov 08/ when the day changed date at night)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ride it...flows around...a sea of music...

so you made another mistake
you broke your own heart into 2
now you sit too tired for tears

if there is beauty
you are blind to it tonight
if there is hope
its on the cover of your book

did life pass by
is it twilight already?

is laughter truly joy
or rudiments of shattered blessings?

imitation of intimacy
is it real anymore? is anything?

you fight the obvious
what are the odds of your winning?

bid adieu my friend
your time has come
go sleep
go away

no, no, no
don't come in my dreams
don't show me what is yours
