2013 April 13: Tears in my sister’s eyes

She’s been hurt,
harmed and destroyed by these dogs called men”

Marks and scars never to disappear have bee left in her body.

She’s been taken for a ride and made to believe she was going to win this time around,
by our falsely imposed justice system…
the fucked up justice system!

One keeps on asking and wondering
When is it all gonna go away?

When will women be taken into serious consideration by our country,
its citizens,
the government
and its ministers?

You’re beaten up, raped and molested

Yet, no matter how hard you cry no matter how high you scream…

They just keep on passing you by.

They enjoy your screams
laugh about it
they mock you
called you names.

They praise their stupidity and foolishness about you.

They share their cowardly insults about you
while forgetting the most important lessons
to be learned and perceived in life about life…
love each one as brothers & sisters so did say GOD!

    Busi and Buhle…the dogs are still around…and since you left, there have been all sorts of dog-talk – Njabulo wrote abt cruelty to dogs and later, Zuma said only abelungu cared abt dogs. Uproar. But still no-one was listening to you except us and we need and love and miss you. So your poems help. Thank you for your lives, loves, poems and the always- memory of why we must keep fighting. in love.
