We Are One - Poem by Vangile Mtyali

We are one
We are one heart
We are one body
We are one mind
We are one spirit
Just as the holy book commands
If we are one heart
Why did you break this heart of ours?
If we are one body
Why did you commit adultery with our body?
You my other half
We complete each other
But then why did you go and look for another woman
Only death was supposed to separate us
Question is?
Why did you let unfaithfulness separate us?
Why did you let your work separate us?
Why did you let problems separate us?
We are one but now we are two
Number two brought unfaithfulness
Number two brought problems
Number two brought death
Together with HIV

    There are answers to those questions
    The ONE ended before the new one came...
    Whose bliss was ignored?
