Shattered
(29 September 1970 / South Africa)

Shattered

There was no explosion
that ripped my body apart -

yet burn victims do not know pain…
even the drowned suffer peaceful deaths

Storms and calamities are but for
dreams in which grief prosper
and the unrighteous reign supreme -

There was no earthquake
which swallowed my soul….

it was a whisper so silent
that only my heart could hear it

and I was shattered
