Lo Mfanekiso - Poem by Siyabonga A Nxumalo

Yiwo lomfanekiso,
Ngiwubone kwelamaphupho,
Ngijubalele kwelamathongo.

Yibo lobu buswana,
Obuyimbulungana okweqanda,
Amehlo afifiyela
Kuhle kwesiphefu.

ikhadlana lakhona elimile
Kuhle kwesisila sedada.
Kuthi faca imamatheka.
Uthotho lwayo lapho ihleka!
Yiwo lomfanekiso.

Ngikhonjiswe yizinyanya,
Zanginyenyezela ngenyathuko.

Nganyenya nginyonyoba ngezinyawo.
Ngibabele lobu buhle bemvelo,
Ngibabele lesi simomondiya.

Amagod' amnyam' aphothen' ekhanda.
Idanda lendlalekile.
Inyathela ngabantwana.
Okomnyovu yazibopha ngexhama
kwabonakala.

Lamagqunyana amabil' esifubeni?
Izimbulungana kuhle kwamagonandoda.

Uboya buphephezel' umzimba wonke,
Kuhle kwezihlabathi zolwandle,
Zigqibelana njengamadlambi.

Yibo lobu buhle bom-Africa.
Ubuhl' obungathakwe nalutho.
Ubuhl' obungenachashazi nasijobelelo.
Yiwo lomfanekiso wethemba,
Wethemba lenhliziyo yami.

Ubuhle bethemba lemvelo,
Ithemba elavezwa yimvelo,
Ilivezela imvelo.
