He wasn’t just a man

By Talent Mqongo, South Africa: I called Him Father yet I never met Him He accepted, tolerated and embraced me beneath him Here on earth can't fathom what a mortal life's worth Tell me am going absurd as my life obscures in this filth He wasn't just man I say unidentified not even as a fifth Gobbling whips He endured […]

Not enough tears

By Talent Mqongo, South Africa: It's been long up to a point I don't remember God tried his best just to calm my temper The world pulled all its ammunition upon this life Stranded in pain and life consumed by misery & strife One day I think, thinking this silver lining comes to end Closer to a century comes realization […]

By Talent Mqongo: As if life itself wasn’t enough for man to work with; Life is full of fun but fun is nothing without it We page through it messing up with things or people who don’t enhance it We strive to belong and endlessly hurt just to fit in Nothing makes sense neither am I getting any cents Pausing […]

Life and its variables

By Talent Mqongo: In life, the ones before me believed it all falls into place in time Restless voices echo through the wind as I struggle to stay in line The sun rises from the east and sets in the west; So is the shadow trapped within the invisible human nest It's daily toil to effect change without being transformed […]
