A poem by a Young MOTivator from MOT SA

.p

A beautifully written poem by our newly trained Young MOTivator, Preston Saayman from Boland TVET College, Caledon Campus in MOT South Africa.

Preston wrote this poem while on the Young MOTivators’ Education from 30 August – 1 September that was inspired by Atle Vårvik (founder of MOT) and Moana’s meeting as part of MOT’s History.

Lyrics:

Secrets
I’ve kept in my heart

Just
to divide the different pain apart

My
courage should have been here right from the start

A
broken teen with broken dreams and this played the part

I
grew sick and tired of meeting the same people in different bodies

I
pick to desire the truth so I just popped some mollies

Wish
we had more things in common and shared similar hobbies

Now I
seek to feed on unguided mentalities like a hungry zombie

We
all crave compassion and the warmth of love and empathy yes endlessly the feels
of ecstasy especially when it leaves you breathlessly

Going
forth relentlessly

Blessed
with a beating heart in your chest

On a
quest to take life’s test striving for the best

Although
you might feel stressed and depressed

Rather
be obsessed to infest in your own growth yes physically mentally spiritually
emotionally

Just
don’t be your own enemy

You
gotta fight these demons straight up

Words
sounding made up covered in makeup through another deadly break up you just
gotta wake up

Memories
coming up like a hiccup

I
Soothen the pain I double cup

Mixing
my emotions with purple potions

Thinking
that they knew me but all they got is one drop from thee ocean

Till
my soul became frozen and my imagery broken

Hypnosis
implosion my life is a open omen

I
treasure my values like golden token

Maybe
not too outspoken

Yet I
wanna shout, I’m always to quiet to try it the words won’t come out

But
now I got M O T who motivates me

That
I OD on self love and to see

The
hope in the eyes of those surrounding me

Showing
courage with the strength I get from GOD

My
anxiety kept on finding me but I buried it here and now RIP
