To End Love.



To end love
There is no such
A thing.
Love
Is something
We
Found
Here.

It was
Before we
Ever decided
To take it up
Or to put it
Down.

To end
Love,
There is no such
A thing.

Love
Is a never ending
Circle,
Whose sphere
Is without measure,
Whose shape
Is unknown.

Love is
Not
A thing
To pick up
Or to put
Down.

Love
Is alive.
It cannot be switched off
Unless
Hell
We choose.
Where love
Forever hides.
Yet love
Is
More
Than what we choose
Or not.
It waits.
It watches.
It sees.
Love
Has always been
Here.
Long
Long
After we are gone.

Love
Shall watch.
Love
Shall wait
To show kindness
At the first opportunity.

Love
Is not a thing to end.
Love has no end.
Love does not end.
Not for me,
Not for you.
Love abides
Forever.

Siki le Artist kule decade

So I was in Cape Town last week and I was introduced as a poet and an 'illustrator'.
This was done by a company that is taking Africa by storm show casing the best of African art. Needless to say, I took a second look at my drawings and suddenly believed in myself. If they did, who am I to say you're wrong. Not this time.

This is what I wish I looked like. With this figure.... But alas I can only draw it for now!

Where Hope Abides


Hope
Is at the edge
Of your tongue.

Life
Grows
Out of the roots
Of your thoughts.

Love
Springs forth
From the fountain
Of the Eternal.

Joy
Is the fire
That sparks from
The words of
Hope.

She said NO


1956
She marched on
She was black
She was white
She was Indian
She was coloured
She said NO 

Strydom hid
From her voice
Demanding justice
Strydom hid

Under her gaze
Apartheid shuddered
Apartheid quivered
Until it shattered

She said NO

2012
She is black
She is white
She is Indian
She is coloured
She says NO

Do not touch
My children!

She says NO
Do not
touch
me

She said NO
