Best Poem of Sicelo Sithole

Africa

Africa
Are you shining because you rime with the word star?
Or is it your beauty, hidden in the wonders of who you really are
I, myself wonder how far
They will go, to destroy your beauty written upon the blue skies
They tried before, by hiding your life in books
But God rested still in your mind and preserved your precious looks
I guess you are who you are to me, an old dream to my hands that never dies

Read the full of Africa

The Old Wind

My life drifts on the strings of this old wind
The question is: do I flow with it or do I make all possible moves?
With no answer and reasoning but only the seasoning speed
It is only death upon my life that purely feed
Upon the joints of the old wind and major grooves
Cutting all the questions temperate and kind
All the journeys through the corrupt lines in my mind
Only to realise am at the birth of springs, flying with the masters of this old wind

[Hata Bildir]
