Voice Be Heard - Poem by Nosipho Africanqueen Mtabani
Speak up & be heard
By the wielders of the coat of arms
Evoke the ordeal of yesterday,
The victories of today,
& the mysteries of tomorrow.
Be heard by the thirsty plants;
Water them with honour
Let the plants blossom,
Despite these harsh conditions.
Speak life into dead
Inject in them a vivacious spirit,
That they may flee
Into the world of hope.
African child-Declare war against the malignant fear
That buries the vehement bug;
Break free from the chains of shame.
When they push you into the doldrums
Tear apart the worn out blankets
Speak up & be heard.
