Stain Katuli (1987 / Zomba, Malawi)
A journey of journeys
That satisfies not the eyes,
Nor the heart does it:
Seeing they see
Yet true perception devoid of,
Understanding it has
Yet true wisdom still it lacks.
An endless lecture of lectures
That both teaches and advises
Where negligence costs one’s failure
And laziness unswerving poverty.
An ongoing struggle of struggles
Where ups and downs are welcome;
No sweat no survival,
So as hope for success.
A right path for rational diehards
Who don’t compromise on justice.
