My World In Black And White - Poem by Zibele Mrasi

My world in black and white
Where we hate
and define love with hate

My world in black and white
Where war is against a friend
and guard an enemy

My world in black and white
Where sod-om is accepted
while we say we believe in God
was he not the one who set fire in sod-om?

My world in black and white
Where poets write their actions
And act what they mean to write

My world in black and white
Where we talk more of hell
And less of heaven

My world in black and white
Where liberty is the name for slavery
And slavery continue none oppose

My world in black and white
Fashion oppose, the body as a temple
Nature die with the sense to live
Man kind in vain
War fought for no reason
Life lay in another's hands
History live only in words
Future chased only in yesterdays

My world in hell
I shall not fear death
For that, to go to hell is a myth
Cause hell has dwell in earth
Joy in my heart for death
My soul will dance in heaven's street

    You already have proven me wrong (What Some Poet's Say) Your poem is very clear and I enjoyed reading it. I especially liked the line ' Future chased only in yesterdays'. Keep up the good work - Best Wishes from a fellow African. (Report) Reply
