Dreams - Poem by Jabulani Mzinyathi

bereft of dreams
dreams bashed by truncheons
dreams under the jackboots
jack boots of the philistines
dreams in solitary confinement
dreams whimpering for freedom
that is the healing of this nation

Topic(s) of this poem: love and dreams

    Good words Jabulani! Yes, what else is there for Zimbos to write of but the maltreated and the millionaires, the many and the few..? (Report)Reply

    A dream is hope, without it we cannot cope.
    The healing of the nations - keep in expectation
    For without fail, it will come true.
    Are you from Zim?
