Answer The Teary Orphan - Poem by Anele TheAfrikanSon kaMthethungqongqo Potelwa

Upon killing my family
Did you ever consider the pain you left him with?
Hardly think of the dreams she had?
Did concious blow enough to burn away the cruelty?

Upon killing my family
Did you plan to replace the love?
Or by any chance intend to provide
Life for her to live?
Upon killing her family
Did you plan to her food and education?
Answer the orphan!

    Powerful message here bro.I grew up without a father, I asked those silently hoping for a miracle each day to happen and wake that man up from his grave, but it never happen. learned to strong from sailing against the wind, from looking forward and walking barefoot on thorns...God never abandon His children...thanks for sharing...Siya...! !

    I am a mother, I feel pain for each child left without a hand and a heart to be cared for. Somehow I feel responsible too. I am sure if I dig deep, faults of myself I shall meet: milliard things not done, ignored, maybe some could bring bits of peace, love and smiles...
    Great write, made me aware, thank you for share. (Report) Reply
