We are stumps by Lerato Matshwane

Poem

We are stumps
Cut down & brown
Felled ,desolate forests & velds .

It rings true that our rings tell of the truth
We were here before they came
Of ages before these pages

Our roots find routes deep in the ground
We are sprouting, the felling didn’t cut off the feeling.

We are stumps, hear the thump thump…thump…our hearts keep beating.
