Mantsho by Hazel Tobo

Poem

Mantsho,
Breathing in places you were placed to die
like cactus plants
underrated yet evergreen
your skin knows how to fight for you
like cactus plants
overlooked but not to be messed with
like cactus plants
Walking on fire has never looked so easy
feet in tune with the beat of the heat
like dancing healers
Mantsho
Breathing in places you were placed to die.
