Mama Ngiyeza


Ngizokwehla estobhini ka Mafuleka,
Ngizolifulathela elasesilungwini ngomso,
Ngizotheleka nize ningilindele,
Utshele no dado benqamule izinyawo ze ngifike bebahle,
Yebo ngizofika emini bebade,
Mama ngiyeza,

Akusasele mahora namizuzu mingaki,
Sengisilungisile isikhwanyana sami engasithenga eflea makethe,
Sengime ngomumo ngisacilonga kahle isiphomoliya sami,
Sekuphele imizuzu ngiziphophotha esibukweni,
Ze bethi uma bengibona ondaba zakudala bebone ukuthi angisendaba zakudlala,
Mama ngiyeza,

Lapho ilanga lisaxosha inkungu,
Namazolo eseqala ukuzicelela empunzini,
Ngilunguze isibuko sami okokungcina,
Ngithintithe izinxabulela ze zicwebezele,
Ngigaxe isijumbana sami emahlombe,
Ngihlome ngikhahlele ngizibone zimhlophe izindlela,
Ngihlohl' ingidi ngikinatele umfihla khanda,
Sengibhekise amabombo ngiyokhomba inqola,
Mama ngiyeza,

Lapho ilanga liqoqa amathunzi sizobe sesibonene,
Uze ulungise ungibike emsamo kuguqa sithandaze,
Ubatshele okhokho ukuba belungise amafutha,
Ze bengigcobise ebusweni bami,
Ngiyethemba nabadala bazohamba nami,
No Mdali uzongihlenga ngifike nginibone,
Mama ngiyeza,

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
