Be Wise! - Poem by Thabani Khumalo

OPEN YOUR EYES WIDE
FOR THE LIGHT HAS BEEN PLACED IN THE FORE
TO ELUCIDATE YOUR WAY TO ANY
DARK DESTINATION YOU MAY SO DESIRE TO TAKE.

THE GHETTO IS TOO CROWDED
FOR RETAINING OF ANY COMPOSURE.
SEE! YOU CAN’T REMEMBER THE LAST THOUGHT
IN WHICH YOU WERE REALLY DEEP
TO UTILIZE IT GOING FORTH.

SO HOW CAN YOU
CLEAR YOUR MINDS OF ALL THE GHETTO’S
DISCOMPOSURE AND BEGIN TO THINK DEEP?
THAT ALONE IS SOMETHING ABOUT WISDOM.
