*YOUR R£SPONSIBILTY* by Cleopatra Dube

You promised to be there,take care of my every
need,i have a need to be hugged and held so tight its a physical pain to breath.
You would provide for me you said,i hunger for all that i know you take for granted,feed my soul.

Everything hugs my body like a second skin,most of it is gone torn,proof of how many years have gone by,clothe the body that is at war with the soul.

The children of the cloud have no mercy on my tired body,constantly i am washed clean and reborn to the world.Mostly i face the earth as a creature belonging to the sea instead of the land,even the wind laughs at me as she carrys me left right and center.Shelter just my head under your wing,dont let them get a glimpse of my nakedess.

Can't you see that you neglect me!Who else will take me in if you close your eyes like you didnt see me right now walking beside you.You are my mother,my brother,sister,friend granparent but i glare into your eyes as an enermy ready for battle.Thats my life daily nothing else makes sense except the pile of rubbish that puts a smile on my face for an impending Christmas.

You and i fight for the street but you dont belong here,you go to your warm bed tonight after spending the day trampling all over mine,then you wake me up too early for my growing bones as you dash past me,treating me like the scum of the city.

Why do you neglect me?I am still your responsibilty.Isnt that the spirit of UBUNTU?Its you who says SISONK£.
