Beaton Galafa

(12 April 1990 / Balaka, Malawi)

The Queen Is Tired


The eyes simply can't,
Ears have revolted,
The nose waits for the lungs,
The heart is snoring,
Arms folded she waits,
The Lord's hand takes time,
The feet cease to be her only carriage,
The smile that engulfed us way back shies away
Another battle lost,
Races will remember the warrior...

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
