Nandipha


I am but a woman
graciously breeded by the xhosa soil
my blood tainted and stained by the xhosa
the earth's air knows my breath
vuluptuos young wowan I am

I go back and forth
I go back to black
A gift these thighs are
My brown soft lips kissed by the sun's warmth

resurected from my draining soul
I know a hundred times
I am but just a girl seeking a place on mother earth
Ndiyi ntonbikaise
ndiyi ntombi kama xhosa
nandipha ama xhosene

I am but a Nandipha

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
