Ndigubani - Poem by Nosipho Africanqueen Mtabani

Caught up in the net of humanity
I pose the question
Who am I?
WHAT defines me?
Is it my character or
My personal sense of deco
Is it my features from birthright or
The principals that govern me.

Does my name, surname, clan name give away the core of my being or
even the cavity of my
traditional practise
can say who I am.

Am I defined by the
Womb of my Upbringing
The influences of my surrondings
The seed of my past
The egg of my future.

Does my language, race, culture, religion determine my identity or
Is it defined
By who I chose to be.
Ndigubani I ask
Who am I

    Ndithe ndihleli nomnye umfo, nde gqi qhaphu! Ngalombhalo wakho sisi, khange ke apho ndilibazise, suke ndawufunda, ndiwukhwaza lo mbongo ukuze naye awuve, kanti ndimthunuke kwezinzulu iinkumpulo, apho naye wayesele ezilibele ukuba ungubani, kodwa what I am trying to say is that, the is a signficant and profound number of many people out there who can not define themselves, and how I wish to let each and every one read this poem, just so they could be able to redeem their identities

    A great poem, which I sincerely love and respect
