For Khwezi: A Soul Forced to Silence

Take Me Home
Let OGumede take you home Fezekile
Them that never left your side,
Even when a people rose against you.
Let OQwabe show you belonging Ntsukela
Them whose very blood brought you life,
Even when your very name was taken from you.
Let OMnguni kaYeyeye bid you welcome sisi
Them who shielded you
When the nation neglected you,
Even when your very existence was threatened.
Let OKhondlo take you home MaKhuzwayo
To restore to you everything lost.
Let them lead you to God
Where a nation’s tale of neglect and hypocrisy will be told,
Where the powerless were stripped of their very being
Lala ngoxolo Phakathwayo! DM
