Mama

nodaba lwami kuma Social Worker abalkhulumi
abangani sebengjikele
yazi mama bona abangani sebengbuka sakunginyanya
bangbiza ngoskhotheni bathi angigezi ngyanuka
mina kubona sengaba ihlaya ngoba bahleli benghleka

kodwa makwi zono zenu eziwele phezukwami
uNkulunkulu kuyobe unecala
ngokungibhixa ngesobho inyama ngingaydlanga
kodwa wena mama kungani ushiye ngeskhathi

sekphelile ukuzkhohlisa ngithi kweyami impilo usaphila
ekbeni ngazi kahle ukuthi umdali kulo mhlaba

ithuna lakho selagqitshwa
nangephupho awsafuni ngisho ukufika
sekyacaca ukuthi vele uhleli kahle lapho thina
