Power, Greed & Division

by Bethuel Kgamanyane


Available in: Paperback / Soft Cover Print Book


The further you get into this book, the more it unfold something that will make sense to you. Previous, the engine that drove the economy was integrity, thrift, and trust. Today, the engine that drives the economy is greed, speed and profits. The boundary is increasing and is tight; the material world is becoming a way of life, and aspirations for expensive items have become a source of sorrow. Status symbols are a curse to mankind, not a luxury, for those who have them for the sake of their pleasure and luxury! Will we ever be able to enjoy the eternal pleasures that God has promised us? The possessor has the time to find pleasure, poor strive for his morality, his greatest treasure. My investment is comparison, sincerity and rectitude, ‘cause they never fail. Let the rest restitute.

In the shadow of Pilanesberg, overpowered by weather and discontent, I stand lonely the escarpment and manage to be lost in staring blue sky for an hour, thinking of justice and freedom in our hearts.

From the discomfort we are going through,
No one is willing to see us surviving, no one!
There‘s no love, no peace, no unity like even before!
I am crying for the future we are making!
I am a cryptogam of love; not a child of the black sun,
So I try loving to satisfy love.
We long and love but never loved!
Even when the sun set for us, will we ever being loved?

About The Author

I am the lastborn in a family of fourteen, same parents; and raised from a desolated farm, Rietgat near Coligny, previously part of the Transvaal. I inherited honesty and self-discipline from my father and a sense of kindness and faith from my mother. Both passed on early 1990’s five months apart. I have grown up in a land where in a roar of thirteen age rebellion, we burned down the stairways to Heaven, then we were poor, and committed crimes in the name of a class war. We have fallen to the receiving end of disappointments, rejections, broken trust, failures and a cold shoulders. We forget that love never fail and can be the connections we can shared with others that might tie us together with what Paul called patient, kind, and persevering. 1 Corinthians 13:1-13.

My pathway to change is on my self-awareness, to know myself better, and to see reality as it is, not only to think how should it be or wish it to be; but also the good health benefits of de-cluttering the space around my wellbeing. I have accepted this reality and have chosen to do something to make it better. By placing my whole attention on the present moment, I’ve dissipate stress associated with past and future events.
