It was the 12th day of December
The day when regardless of any politics, I was a proud South African member
Our giant had fallen
So hard that he shook the world, hearts stolen
His body lady, soul rested
But souls connected with a man greatly trusted
And I was one of them…
The soul connection so profound that I knew that if I was of his era,
I’d probably be one of the political bearers
But I’m not so, I’ll give him the praise
I’ll take my hand and raise…
it up, proudly like Biko’s definition of consciousness
And unlike back then, I’m proud with no worry of consequences
Rest Tata. Rest in politics. Rest in power. Rest in passion. Rest in patience.
Do not rest in the poison that has been inflicted upon you
Do not rest in the pain that has been inflicted upon us
Tata, I owe my ability to speak the English language so intensely to you
You taught me that education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
And Biko taught us that the most powerful weapon in the eye of the oppresor, is the mind of the oppressed
So it seems that knowledge is the gun,
School is the trigger,
And we are ready to attack with success.
It is now because of you that the world has hurled, swirled and curled
Rest in peace Tata.
And the world will rest in the peace that you have created.
Poetry has the taste.
Fine arts has the vision.
Music has the hearing.
Sculptures have the touch.
This is the decadent scent of art.
I totally relate to this.
My name is BUSISIWE, “say it right.”
I respect young pregnant ladies who decide to keep their babies
Despite the fact that they have dreams, ambitions and goals, they are taking responsibility for their actions
I respect these young ladies due to the fact that they are not only focused on their aspirations but are also willing to take on an extra soul along on their journey
I respect these ladies ‘cause unlike other numerous people, they’re taking the decision not to turn their wombs into morturies
I’m not judging young ladies for having abortions ‘cause one should never regret something that they know that they wanted to do at that point and ‘cause they know their circumstances
But we judge these young pregnant ladies so much and forget that some young ladies take the easy route out
I know you’ve gotta do what you gotta do
But also stop and think that it could easily be you.
Some exciting news…
J*Davey will be making their way to South Africa soon.
