Ubadla Skuni


UBADLA SKUNI

Nsizwa yakithi uthi uliqhawe,
Uthi uyindoda uze uzishaya isifuba ngawe,
Nabangani bakho uthi bayaziqhenya ngawe,
Uze uthi akekho ofana nawe,
Ngith izozika lenqanawe,
Othi uthembele kuyona kanti yona ayethembele kuwena,
Ubadla skuni.

Usibukela phansi thina, uthi sihambela emhlabathini,
Nawe uzowa phansi isemhlabeni lapha,
Abaziyo bathi lomhlaba uyahlaba,
Usubahlabile abaningi basemhlabathini kuyimanje,
Ubadla skuni.

Lomthwalo owuphethe uzokusinda njengoZahara,
Uloliwe uzokududula udidizele uwe udindibale,
Uhubhana notalagu lento yahlula okhokho bakho,
Uzitika ngoshukela nje uyawabolis' amazinyo,
Uzosala ngolimi ufane nalaba asebephila ngetiye,
Abaliphunga ekuseni nantambama baphumula emini,
Ubadla skuni.

Uhamba ubutha zonke izibi,
Ungumlimi otshala ensimini enkulu evundile ejike unganiseli,
Eshiye imbewu engenamniseli,
Ihlume imbewu ithele izithelo ezibolile,
Osisi ubashiya bebonile,
Izinyembezi zabo zilokhu zehlile,
Lapho usudlulile usuhamba nabanye,
Ubadla skuni.

Impilo yakho uyiphethe ngesaka,
Bathi abafethu besakhanda ufike ubhidlize,
Ikusasa lodadewethu ufike ulidilize,
Ubafuthe izisu uzishiya zigcwele amathambo,
Ubaleke ujike ungabaniki uthando,
Ubashiye nomthwalo wansondo,
Ujubalale unyamalale besale bemelwe inqondo,
Izalwe ingane ayinababa ozoyinika uthando.
Ubadla skuni.

Ubashiya nempilo inzima,
Kepha isono sakho ezulwin sikhulu,
Noma ungaba nezintombi ezingamakhulu,
Noma ungabashiya nezisu ezinkulu,
Lemithwalo yabo izoba intshe emahlombe akho,
Kodwa mfethu uthi uyiqhawe
Ubadla skuni..

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
