Living in South Africa in these times can be heartbreaking and fearful. We just need to keep praying for spring and not winter.
The coming of a new season.
So sticky it can only be spread
not washed away
The fear on the streets
of what is to come today.
of every culture and class
eyes each other with narrowed glance
Words tumble onto thinned lips
a barely tempered lance
Where are we heading this season?
Is it winter or spring
where death gives birth to life?
Or where life gives way to death?
Where human blood gets swept
into gutters like overabundant rainwater
or where clarity is found trying to understand
through the pain of the past?
Only time will tell
if it's heaven or hell
where we are heading.
