Ocean Weaps, The

Poem By Elbert Matt Loubser

When it rains the oceans sing
upon the vast drought of this land
the dry sands of this land
they weap for they lose unity

Long forgotten unity

O take the winds and let them howl
throuh the trees let them scowl
make these days dark with love
and light with hate

O imperseptible fate

I am not one to try
to make these days true
what is a lie if it isn't true
if it doesn' let you cry

O rains make me true

I am but a vastness
on and on I drown any traveller
this unknowing traveller
hearken me, bade forgiveness

I am not selfless
I am not selfless
these rains should fill my lungs
and drown me, bless
the other

Rains of fire burn me

Flame, The

Longing to stay the same
A brittle, little light
Manifested in the night

Painted Canvass

A canvass was given to me
one that has already felt the touch
from coarse bristles not of my hand that held it
it was meant to be untouched ere I could touch it

What Follows

We walked this day downtrodden
as asphalt and pitiless penny
what justice there is in violence,
I know not,

A Father's Advice

To be what makes a difference
In all we know to be
Is something of significance
And as yet we have to see
