Betrayal and Enmity
by Seren VonStein

You may give me strife
But you may not have my life--
My body, my sanity,
Uncontrolled in your vanity,
Think you can take what you want
No regards to me
I put up a front
Because you can take my freedom
But you can't take my pride.

David and Bathsheba (Part 3)
by Pilgrim Roy

He who’d killed lions and a giant man
was slain by this beautiful woman.
Her pure loveliness had captured his soul
and now he had to face sins awful toll.

But he schemed and contrived and planned.
Gave no thought to the fact that he’d be damned
when he told the captain of his great army,
“Send Uriah her husband home to me”

Scorpions legacy continues
by Beatrice Knox

Bad little scorpion
Lying to the frog
The frog trusted you
Instead you break its spirit
You break its body
You broke my trust
You’re a bad little scorpion
But your lies are big
Our game of poker became pointless
When you won all the time

My enemies,my brothers.
by GODONI YOHANA

I will go nowhere
To look for my enemies
Nor shall i go there
Because
My enemies are my brothers.

I shall blame nobody
Nor shall i blame somebody
who is from Abroad
For causing me terrible stomach

Sad Reality
by Bame Bame

The sad reality is;
You were at war with yourself
I became collateral
I wanted you to heal
You pretended you weren’t hurt
I felt the pain of watching a beautiful thing easily disintegrate
Maybe it needed elders to invigilate
I gave you everything
You left me with nothing
Were we fighting a battle we couldn’t win?

Heartless Lover
by Lee-Ann Azzopardi

You never had empathy for me
But I did for you
When someone close to me dies
You would say no one can live forever
And you carry on,
As though, nothing really happened
I despise you
And yr words of hate
For you never gave me love
When I need it

This bomb
by Priscah mutswenje

In the halls of camaraderie where trust did bloom,
A tale unfolds, shrouded in shadows of gloom.
Once, a mentee, a colleague dear,
Now, a whisper of betrayal draws near.

Beneath the wings of guidance, they soared,
Together, dreams and ambitions explored.
Hand in hand, through challenges we strode,
But in the depths, a treacherous seed was sowed.

I wasn’t ready
by Elias Becker

You asked me in my chevy
But I was never ready
Guess I was a little petty

My face in a red flush
Your soul I just crushed
It just felt too rushed

I couldn’t give a reason
The air was sick with treason

Forgive me
by Sonja D.

I don't know you, woman,
I see your wit and charm
a soul so brave and good
fighting for just and right.

Can't help but wonder, lady,
what story behind that image
careless whisper boldly say
you are none of my concern.
