I write what I feel…

Under the Weight of a Leaden Sky

Under the Weight of a Leaden Sky

.

Greys, graze,

Colours erase,

Faceless figures, nameless numbers,

Making sense of the senseless.

.

Humanity wounded,

Cut to the core, edges raw,

Someone’s baby,

Somebody’s child.

.

Chain linked, slashed wide,

Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers,

Weeping tears,

Stilling fears.

.

Gap-toothed abscess marred;

History’s face is scarred.

.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
