Life In Full Colour - Poem by Raymond Magabe

life in full colour,
where the grey reflects the black,
back when 'zama-zama' was more
than a concept; a lifestyle
of blue and red lights lighting the sky.
it was beautiful and clear:
go to school and be somebody.

living in full colour,
gracious and wild,
kids with big dreams
start a count down on those that are living.
black and white
with a shade of grey and blue,
soldiers of the same struggle
enemies of the same freedom
contenders for the same trophy
bounded by blood
divided by colour.
