I Stand Puzzled - Poem by Tshifhiwa Given Mukwevho

Jail was land of my sojourn
for a decade

Now out of it all
building my life anew
I meet you dear woman, woman of the green breeze

Your mom is so illogical, thoughtless and heartless.

she pours a bucketful of human excrement
on my face, and expects to hold
the child of my blood in her arms
calling him her grandson

I am left grappling
with tremors of prejudice.
