[zulu, Inkondlo] Incwadi Yothando Ii

Poem By LLM Mbatha

I feel alone,
And stand alone,
To hold my aching hands unaided,
I shed tears underneath the crystal light,

When I love alone,
I hate all that stand for it,
I express the laughter I held so long,
And appalling pain after,

Eat without a desire,
Sleep without a path,
Because of what I uncharted,
On the winding map.

What Is In A Language?

Language carries in it the history of a people
The history that begins way before
The conception of that particular language
Every myth, idiom, or story told carries

There’s A Bright Patch Of Green

there’s a bright patch of green
on the Table’s lap
but I cannot see the sun
from where I sit

There Is A Man...

There is a man that's so hollow
Nothing fills him up
Though he keeps on going on
His thirst is always rife

To Hope

Is to believe
In that a Greater Authority
Will take care of things
And of you
