Weep if you can
Let the way choose you.
However, never complain
The way chose you –
In addition, you must be thankful.
Do not let those tears fall
upon the sacred ground
this bleached soil red and dead
known as laterite –
"The Shona say the colour comes
from all the blood that's being
spilled fighting over the land…"
Weep if you dare or will
For I know
What's on the other side.
In addition, you have yet to find out
The truth
And for that my friends –
I fear you will have to open your eyes
In addition, weep
Weep if you can!
