Anyway, will it help even if I knew?
Will it take away this hatred I feel for you?
Will it bring back those loved ones?

You sit there with a face full of scorn
Sorrowful pretence written all over you
Asking amnesty for your grievous deeds
Demanding that I should forgive and forget

As you proudly tell me you did it for your country

Mpho...Very strong poem. You've written this brilliantly. You showed great courage to speak your mind in such an open fashion. Great courage indeed, and you are to be commended for that, I can not wave a magic wand and right the evils of the past...I wish I could. I wish that I could take away your heartache for your loss...but I can't. I hope that this experience has strengthened you. In the end...remember Mandela's words. Hugs, Dee
