Moletedi Koketso Ntseme

Rookie (30 November 1993 / Mahalapye, Botswana, Africa)

Withered Flowers Never Cry


Mid summer's sun emerges
And the petals get withered
Stalk standing with boldness
Without wiping any tear

Internals dying
Like the setting sun
Dead as dry bones,
Murdered by the heat

Soon the sky weeps
With a loud scary voice,
Moisturising the earth
For it was once dry

‘Withered Flowers Never Cry'
They stand tall and strong,
Telling you of their joy,
And they are never wrong.
