Where we are thus far by Reitumetse

Poem

How sweet it is
that life can begin this way
That creation is play
between earth and heaven
Furtively,
Forming itself
And all its bit
Of bliss
No one could see how warped it is
Or taste the venom in its wonder kisses
Until
Slavery, colonialism, apartheid
Until
White became white
and black became black
Until
Man is trash
and Women
possessed, suppressed and bashed,
and the children grow without the feeling of a mother’s back
that sweet moment
between earth and heaven’s sheets
Where life begins
suddenly
regressed
to regret
