Black Heat - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

The hot summer sun has paid us a visit
From sunrise to sunset
The heat wave is unforgiving
Pushing the temperature beyond the mercury line
The limits of human life within reach
Ghostly mirage of death seen on the horizon

The thin fragile clouds offer no solution
Their lack of water is heart breaking
Pushing our hopes to desperation
Unmasking our lack of faith

Scotched by the simmering heat
My heart bleeds from the inside
Hot blood pouring from my veins
Penetrates the depth of my soul
Threatening to severe the cord of my life
