I Wish And I Will See The Sun Meet The Moon And The Skies Blue On The Shadows Of The Sunlight - Poem by MTHOKOZISI NTOKOZO MAPHUMULO

I WISH TO SEE THE SKY BUT I CANNOT
THIS ARE MOMENTS FOR THE STUDYING
DAY AND NIGHT IS SAMETHING TO ME
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE DOES THE SUN COMES FROM
THERE IS NO WINTER AND NO MORE SUMMER
EVERTHING IS THE SAME
NIGHT AND THE DAY ARE SIMILAR PATTERNS
BUTI HOPE TO SEE THE RAINBOW ONE DAY
YES WE LEAR DIFFICULT AT SCHOOLS
THERE ARWE THOSE WHO ARE BUISY PUTTING US INTO TEMPTATION AND ALL SORT OF GAYS
BUT AS LONG AS I FOCUS MY AMBRELLA TO THE WIND DIRECTION I WILL SHIELD ALLOF THOSE TROUBLES
I KNOW: YES I ALWAYS KNOW
THAT WHENTHE MORNING APPROACHES THERE IS ALWAYS THE EXTREME DARKNESS
BUT THEREIS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME
IT WILL BE LIKE THE RELEASE OF NELSON MANDELA FROM THE JAIL
IT WILL BE LIKE THE FALL OF NAZISIM
IT WILL BE LIKE THE END OF EUROPE COLONIALISM
IT WILL BE LIKE I SEE THE AMERICA FOR THE SAME TIME
I WILL RISE WITH MY REDDISH FACE
THE SUN WILL REFLECT THIS MAGESTIC HIDOUS FACE FOR THE FIRST TIME
THERE WILL BE NOMORE TEARS
THERE WILL BE THE TEARS FOR THE JOY ONLY
THE SUN WILL GIVE ME IT YELLOWISH LOOKS
THOSE NATURAL FANCY COLOURS FROM THE SUM THAT DESERVE THE GOD EYES
YES IT IS GOOD TO SOCK AT TH SUN
BUT IT WILL BE SAFE TO SOCK IT WITH ACADEMIC EYES
THAT IS WHEN I WILL BEGIN TO EXPLORE GLOBAL WARMING
THAT IS WHEN I WILL EXTOL THE GASIOUS EXCHANGES IN THE OZONE
OH YES I WISH I WILL GET MY HONORS AND DEGREE
SOTHAT I WILL MANIFEST THOSE EVER-MORNING SUNS
THE STARS WILL SET FOR ME
THE EXTREME DARKNESS WILL BEGIN TO HERALD THE APPROACH OF THE MORNING
MY MOTHER WILL SEE WHAT HE WAS WAITING FOR SO LONG
TO SEE ME DRIVING A CAR
MY MOTHER YOU ARE MY INSPIRATION
YOU ARE A WONDERFUL MOTHER
I DID’T EVER SEEN A WOMAN WHO IS UNEDUCATED BUT WHO IS WILLING TO LEARN
I REMEMBER THOSE DAYS WHEN I USE TO BE AT THE HIGHSCHOOL LEVELS
SHE USE TO BE THERE
SHE WATCHES EVERTHING THAT I DO
I KNOW SHE FELT THAT SHE MUST DO SOMETHING
OHH EUROPEAN APARTHEID
MY MOTHER MIGHT HAVE BEEN A DOCTOR
BECAUSE SHE LOVES EDUCATION
BUT SHE IS A STREET HAWKER
SHE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
SHE DOESN’T EVEN WORK
IN THE NAME OF JESUS MAY MY MOTHER BE BLESSED
MAY SHE HAVE ALL OF MONEY AND NEEDS THAT SHE WANTS
BECAUSE SHE IS A CLEVER WOMAN
SHE ACTS VERY WISELY
OPEN SKY
OPEN HEARTS
OPEN MINDS
OPEN HANDS WILL MOVE TOGETHER
IN A HUMMER CAR
WHEN I GOT MY DEGREE
THE ENEMIES WILL LIE DOWN AND I WILL WALK TALL
SPEECHIES WILL BE SILENCED
SILENCED
SILENCED AND SILENCED
