"All I have" by Reikhutsitse Malala

  • 0

Under the earthly skies – the law of gravity keeps me down
My mortal status makes me feel the heat of the sun
I’m vulnerable because of my financial wishes and the things I can’t do
Mere words like; “Carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders” are misleading
Flesh blood is all I have
Pain is familiar -I am no metal – destructible – I am
I can bend, I can break, and I can feel
I wish to be special but I am only human

Chorus: (x2)
All I have are wishes and dreams – All I have are wishes and dreams
Wealthy thoughts fail to complement that bank account
I only have two hands – trying to grab that pot of gold
But in this age of living someone probably high jacked my destiny
So many breaking points
All I have are wishes and dreams
All I have are wishes and dreams

I am no rock - I am no hero
Ask me for help
I need saving too
My heart overcrowded with desires
I have no special powers or friends
Just human, just a dreamer, just a mere being wishing to be happy
Dying is cheaper than living
My blood knows no well being, just struggle
Struggle after struggle makes me livid – the sun might never shines
I wish to be happy – but the Genie is attending to many people
Feeling empty poised by thoughts of failure
I try so hard, nay Sayers keep dragging me down
When you lost all sense of hope – all you left with is wishful thinking

Chorus: (x2)
All I have are wishes and dreams – All I have are wishes and dreams
Wealthy thoughts fail to complement that bank account
I only have two hands – trying to grab that pot of gold
But in this age of living someone probably high jacked my destiny
So many breaking points
All I have are wishes and dreams
All I have are wishes and dreams
