Vonita

I’m a wife and mother based in Sydney, Australia.

About me – I love writing poetry. It makes me happy. I even love reading poetry, it makes me happy too 🙂 I have since written a book. It is the passion of my heart.

I identify as a South African Australian (a little exotic) as I was born and raised in Johannesburg (vibrant city), and Africa is in my blood. (Charlize Theron, Nelson Mandela, District 9?)

Please feel welcome to say hi 🙂

Vonita presents The Light
(my first ever poem)

Kindly put to music and performed by Maria Panova.


When all around is dark
And all you know is night
Feel the hope within
And move towards the light

When sadness overwhelms
And you have lost your sight
A few gentle steps
Moving towards the light

When wounds begin to heal
We sense that near delight
Stirs our waking heart
Embracing inner light

When happiness is found
And all is calm and bright
Ever keep on reaching
Onwards towards the light

    • I saw your comment on my blog, so then I went to yours, and I found your first poem deeply touching. I loved how it was put to music. Then I started looking at your other posts, and I am actually crying here at the computer, I feel such a connection. Thank you.

      • You wouldn’t believe how timely your comment has come my way. Just now I overcame a bout with my carnal nature because an altercation with my son. Again despair attempted my destruction but! when I said, “Father, You are my portion. In You I am complete. I no longer need any of my children to make me complete. I refuse to believe the evil accusations coming to my mind. Please help me Father. Show in some kind of way that You are for real. That what I write comes from You not from my imagination.”
        Immediately, my tears dried. His peace returned. I got up. Fixed my detox tea. Came to the computer. Checked emails. Then…I clicked the tab for my book blog …Ah! A comment! Let’s see…WOW!
        Indeed! Not a shadow of a doubt! Father is my portion for real! Let all hell come against Him living in my heart. Nothing & no one can dethrone Him! Hahaha! HalleluYah!
        His blessings to you my dear sister. Much love. thiaBasilia

    • Thank you so much, but I must confess it is not me doing the singing, it is a relative by marriage! It is performed by Maria Panova, she put my first poem The Light to music, and sent it as a surprise! (I’ve stated it somewhere on the page, but maybe need to highlight it). Thank you for the wish, and for watching it ❤

      • I only started running wordads at end September and have received October amount. It was literally a few cents, less than a dollar. My impressions were only half of my visitor count (which was approx 5000 pm). At this rate I will never reach $100. Hope that helps!
