Courage by Sifiso Mabena


I have glimpsed her in still moments
Against the glint of broken bottle-necks
Without justice delivered
I have seen her body shiver
With my face pressed into her shoulders
My back is turned against
Truth damned up; threatening
an out come
Is it a right one?
Is it a right one?
Trembling I turn around
facing truth’s trafficked sounds
Words speed and a buzz is roused
As I stand, my silence is loud.
