Ver in 'n ander "better" land.

Ver in 'n ander "better" land.

My God, my God ek is verlore

Tussen al die aardse moorde.

Wat het van my land geword,

en vir wie kan kan kwaad wees,

of moet ek terug gaan en vir alles vrees.

Hier sit ek en my vrou

Huil en ween - en ons rou,

Weg van Suid Afrika het ons gevlug

Oor al die politieke klug.

Ons sit nou alleen aan hierdie kant,

ver weg van ons moederland.

Deel van ons wil terug en ander wil weer bly

Gaan ons ooit weer blydskap kry?

Ek sluit my oë en ek vra

My heer my heer ek wil ophou kla.

Vat my hand en lei my nou

Deur al die emosies wat aan ons kou.

God van liefde God van als.

Gee ons vreugde sodat ons weer kan lag.

Uys Man, dis pragtig. Ek dink elkeen van ons gaan daardie gevoel een of ander tyd beleef. Baie sterkte vir julle. Ek dink aan julle.

Beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing...

I have found that writing (poetry) does help to process emotions...

Thinking of you during this difficult time that you are facing. In the end, everything happens for a reason...

a poem we all can relate to.

when my time comes to be in oz.i would like to build a monument in the likes of the voortrekker monument.the walls etched with poems like this from the heart,

so that our progeny and the world must know that we did not run away from our country because it was the easiset to do. but because it was the right thing to do.

keep the poetry comming mate!
