Zulu Poetry | Izinkondlo: UMSOLWA NJALO

UMSOLWA NJALO
Ngivuka ekuseni
ngigqoke njengenene –
Ihembe elimhlophe, uthayi, nensudi.

Ngihamba esitaladini
Bese ngihlangabezwa indoda
engitshela ukuthi “khiqiza.”

Ngiyikhombisa
Ubhukwana wempilo yami
Ukuthi ucwaningwe bese inginika ukuqekuza.

Besengingena emnyango omkhulu webhilidi
ngithole indlela ivalwe ngunogada
“Ufunani?”

Ngiphaquza imisinga yedolobhakazi
uhlangothi nohlangothi no “misisi”
ogudluzela isikhwama sakhe ngakolunye,
angibheke ngamehlo athi
“We! Klibhi! Ngiyakwazi ukuthi ungubani;
ngaphansi kwalezosingubo zikanokusho
kuncencetha inhliziyo yesela.”
