The Family Poem by Isaac Maliya

Lips registered smiles
As the varied family durations
Of three, four or five years
Ceremoniously came to a close.

Ecstasy buried
Periods of toil and warnings,
Of multifarious intimidations,
Days and sleepless nights of mating
Of this periodic family life.

Enthusiasm folded
Those gone unimpregnated
Infertility divorce cases
That spread over the time
Of this periodic family life.

Happiness veiled
The hard task of mating
Where pregnancies were taken
For deliveries in the world.
The inception of a new family.

Dedication: To Sam Tembenu,
and other Chancoll’s
prospective graduates.

Saturday,18th February 1989.
Chirunga, Zomba, Malawi.
