A Song Of Gratitude
by Christen Kuikoua

In the tapestry of time, where friendships bloom,
Mes amis, like petals, dispelling life's gloom.
Brothers, firm anchors in the sea of existence,
Une soeur agaçante, a tempest, a relentless insistence.

Parents, the roots, firmly grounding my being,
Leaves of wisdom, in the breeze, foreseeing.
Enemies, shadows that dance in the moonlit night,
Igniting the fire, propelling toward the light.

The Train of Freedom
by Khayelihle Bongiswa Gamedze

Just how far is the train of freedom from the discriminated son?
Just how far is the train of freedom from the black homeless child?
Just how far is the train of freedom from the disabled poet?
And just how far are the winds of change from a corrupted nation!?

Just how far is the train of freedom from the fields of Waterloo?
Just how far is the struggling warrior from the mountain top?
Just how long is 365 days 27 times behind bars, I mean,
Just how far is freedom from a lonely child at play?...

My ancestors ran
by Rukudzo Kachambgwa

My ancestors ran
Thats why I'm not American, or British, or Jamaican.

They ran...
That's why I'm sitting on hard bench with no money and wallet
That's why i will go home after writing this poem to no electricity
and no water
and no polony.

alone and happy
by Miki Vermeulen

I cannot be alone,
And I cannot be bored.
Does that mean I like people's company?
Or am I just good at faking a smile,
And getting things done?

People say I have the best smile,
But is it real?
Am I really happy?
Or do I just lie to everyone?

Time and Life are passing me by
by Author Reinvented

Time is moving so quickly
I'm falling behind,
I'm working so hard but
My life is passing me by,

My friends are all dating,
And one has got married
Two both have a baby
And a house they are sharing
And I -

Core
by S. Taylor Chew

I’d be so much better off
If I could just let you find me
Take off this mask
And just let it be

I remember when we
Were all laughing and brighter
A glimpse of the sun
The warmth of the cider
