The Winner

Love is a misunderstood concept.

Only a winner understands it well.


It is not a commodity:

To be bought,

To be sold,

To be advertised,

To be hidden,

To be flaunted,

To be abused,

To be forced,

To be shunned,

To be played with

Or to be twisted.


For love to be understood

in all it’s glory

It must be given freely,

It must be lived,

It must be transparent,

It must be shared,

It must be true,

It must be real,

It should inspire joy,

It should inspire hope,

It should inspire understanding,

It should inspire trust,

It should inspire caring,

It should inspire peace,

It should inspire patience.


Only when you live this kind of love

Are you a winner.

Johannesburg!
