And maybe, When all the damage done by all the years spent living in the moments in which we live starts to subside; To return to the ability to trust as delicately as with the innocence of a child, Maybe then we’ll scream… love!
But what is more? The pain inflicted on us by others, Or that which we inflict on ourselves?
But what can justify self-loathing and disgust more than looking at a gushing wound and knowing that you alone are to blame for the pain which consumes you.
And so, we continue living in a constant battle between your own organs; A heart that’s begging you to simply let it stop beating And a pair of lungs that, given the chance, would refuse to let in any more air. And still…you breathe.
For some people, especially those with vivid imaginations, it is difficult to express themselves conventionally. There’s simply too much to say, too many ways in which to describe a single item, too many colors, too many sounds. For those people, there is poetry. | Born, raised and living in Africa. | Art lover (In all it's forms) | Hopeless romantic. | Believes in making the world a better place; one thought, one word, one action at a time.

She uses writing to tackle (sometimes uncomfortable) social issues with the hope of transforming the Namibian and the global community’s mindset on the current status quo. Ndapewoshali believes that love, as a verb (through kindness, patience, common understanding and tolerance), consistent education and reform, are the answers for all social, economic and political ills. She is also a strong advocate for mental health awareness and the importance of creating a safe environment in which mental health is prioritized and mental illness is destigmatized. Ndapewoshali is an art-loving (in all its forms), hopeless romantic who believes in making the world a better place; one thought, one word, one action at a time.
