The words of my beloved mother
''Sinomhlobo, he's dead''

The swords of lingering emotion piercing my eyes
I released them
I kept on
It kept on
As my life was conceived
The same way, it was ended

Mthuthuzeli Mbiko
That man. My father
I had forgiven him for trying to end my life
Yet I will never be brave enough to let go
I will never be able to forgive myself for being absent
A bullet pierced his kidneys

A Sickness Of Conformity

Ndinesigulo. Hayi ayisose ngqondo
Kodwa into nantsi ihlaba entliziyweni.
Ithi mandiye kwantliziyo ndise, nyawo ndikhaphe.

A sickness that is a mystery to doctors
My own sickness that distinguishes me from the rest
A heart that seeks more that the eye sees
A sting in the heart that seeks adventure in a world of suits

[Hata Bildir]
