Rage - Poem by Pheko Motaung

Kill the lingering thoughts
Of life aglow with
Success with inaction and
Still feel the worsening
Tide of the rage flooding
In your angered heart
Wipe away the bad memory of
The dreamy boy who had all those
Bright ideas filling his innocent
Mind and flip your conscience
To the stiff wishes of what
You can never be and feel the
Avalanche of the rage that gushes
Into the blood stream of your soul
Rage against the angels of kindness
That encourage you to rise and do good
Rage against the society that wants
To accept you back on condition that
You give up the drugs and you leave
Their daughters alone and you kill
At least only one of their sons per year
Rage against the justice system and
The psychologists and the philanthropists
Who make excuses for raging heart and rage
And rage against your universe with it's
Negligent attitude of condemning without
Offering the solutions and rage against
Your teachers and your ministers they of
The cacophony of the dull preachy criticism
That is bare of the critical analysis of
The skull of your mind but as for the last
Duo wait in the dark to bring the rage
Of your blade into their flesh
Under the cover of their dark deeds
