Brewing The Wind by Makhanda Senzangakhona

Poem

I’m the seed in the soil
Awaiting the summer rains
Beneath the pile,
defying debris and
trying refuse,
“I rise to meet my sun”.
Though the hurricane rage
And the floods foam
Daring to drown hope
In cauldrons of despair
Defiant I stride, head held high
Mutinious as hell and rebel
As they come.
You may’ve owned yesterday
Tomorrow belongs to us
And our children ‘s children
