The Mind - Poem by Walani Ndhlovu

There rings the bell
The dream strikes hard
Awakening the girl
A dream so bad

There comes joy
The thoughts strike hard
Happy is the boy
In the end gets mad
There goes hope
Night strikes hard
Man hangs on a rope
A story so sad

There sounds the gun
Day dream strikes hard
The woman can't run
Just waits for the blood

There comes war
The life strikes hard
All on the floor
In the red liquid flood.
