Wisdom by Maiketso

I admit I echo threnodies
I jock and jive
My pop is that of bubblegum

But what remains true
Is what she told me to do
Prosper young man!
The world is your oyster.

She also showed me a gift on the table
The conquering weapon
She is and was the rhyme and reason

Words are bone breakers
But her soothing voice is what makes us
The light we must share with the world.

I remember hymns,
I remember psalms,
I go through this unbearable life.
Then I remember;
My grandmother’s voices
