Poem

Love and light!
The story of my being
Is becoming obscured
By the lyrics of blasphemy

I am a spirit
Descending from above
Like a dove diving down
To shed love and life
To the species beneath
A metaphysical planet
Of supernatural powers

I am the history
Rewriting the future
Of my reincarnated being
Because we keep dying &
Reliving through dynamics
And motions of generations

I am the wretched voice
of ancestors
Humming love-lyrics
In the stage of
youthful morals &
delinquency

Indeed!
I am black consciousness
Preaching love and light
At the heart of East London
City hall

I’m the stage to pigeons
And pied crows dancing
Upon a memory of
Reconciliation
At the union buildings

I am the nation
Declared a democratic state
Where children
Are lambasting to records

I am memories of stoicism
Unveiled at Chris Hani Memorial
To define the agility of times

Love and light!
The story of my being
Is becoming obscured
By the lyrics of blasphemy
