Title : Haunted 
By : Harry Rowe & Quinton Tebogo Makunyane 


I’m half the man I once was 
Feeling like from 
what I have become 
I’m lost between realities 
that have been 
challenging me 
and I know 
that i am beyond..

But I breathe again, every night I find myself challenged to be sleeping then, 
I find myself sleeping in. 
The demons they keep creeping in. 
Afraid to admit it yet I hate 
my existence what a waste of breathe, 
all this oxygen ive been gifted. 
What am I to do with it.
I feel so useless in this room again, 
so many ignorant thoughts
I’m in a mood again.
I'm half the man I once was
My heart constantly fighting battles
demons never stop 
lurking over me
I think I just lost sense of who I am
I was raised in the African soil
My melanin skin shines
brighter on darker days
As I lay my head down 
and hope for the better..
My thoughts were a constellation
Life was a train of desperation
A process so dissimilar
A series of distractions
My eyes filled with tears..

When nothing goes right 
I feel like crying 
In front of everyone.. 
I break into a million pieces 
Hoping someone might
put me back together 
I'm tired of everything 
Every breathe I take 
Feels like the beginning 
Of this whole nightmare over again
