Reconciliation


Expecting us to reconcile
Is like building a brittle wall as a remedy for a while
Forgetting that inside BEE nepotism, e-Tolls', and money greed continue to pile
Be warned that the wall shall break to haunt like that of exile
Awethu amandla! Now distant by a mile
Awenu amandla and walking money down the isle

Big up to the much anticipated rand-bow nation
Never, never and never again shall there be mental emancipation & reconciliation
Let us live and strive for donation
In suffer apart-freakah our land of political deception

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The spoils of Freedom War or Uprising in South Africa this far has just been words used by politicians as weapons to win elections. To reconcile with the other races we as the African ethnic group in RSA we need to reconcile with ourselves first, because if we still have 'Us' and 'them' e.g 'us who fought and they who sold out, us who stayed and then that run away to exile' we are not yet and not soon to be the South Africa our fore-parents longed for.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
