Courage Knows Fear by Lwazi Prolific

 (please read from the bottom up)

Just it’s not limited by it
Courage knows fear
And cooked in waters of wisdom…
Planted in sacrifice crushed
Feeding her young – maze
Poverty & with the marrow in her
While a mother braves
From cowardly trigger-fingers
Guns blaze
In the troubled noise.
Defining harmony
A muted voice,
Courage is a choice
Which do You take?
Path chosen OR Path open

In the aftermath?
What new level will we even out
All fortresses of worth shake –
When the earth-quakes
Acres of down-to-earth living.
Sky-scrapers decaying where ants continue building
Or a stamped prescription?
Is free-will given a pen & page
When awaiting change
That science is flawed by when calculating?
Strong stand with a survival skill
Down it’s meal through the wind -
Brave a hill to bring
How does an ant
Courage knows fear

I began writing in 1995, crazed by hip-hop. This began as something I wanted to prove to myself that I could do. As experience would have it, i become exposed to more than the romantic side of writing with my environment changing. As such I’ve grown to writing in a signature of my own. I write my poems from the bottom of a page (from left to right) going upwards…to reach a new point of enlightenment.
