Desert Of Memories - Poem by Nontobeko Dlamini

I am desert, desert of memories,
Like golden artifacts, memories
Precious buried on the sand forever traveling.

I build a sand dune of memories golden, Passionately
I watch over it like the sun of the stately
Blue skies.

When it weighs on my heart heavily
I let go like i let in, carefuly and instinctively, Though the sand storm of my sorrows, Be vicious and
Vigorous, another sand dune be moulded,

To unmark the memories uncoded,
Deep within the traveling sands,
From thieving pirates never found.
