Still Life

Dysfunction and hope
Despair yet calm
Relaxed but awake
The darkness brings song.
A stranger to the faces
The mzunga walks free
Alive and alone
But fearless are we?
The strange land beckons
Our origin lays claim
At home to dance
Our spirit speaks liberty!
The world ignites
A battle ensues
The HIV sparks doom
Now a sweet day breaks
The birds sing along
With help awaits
Not before long

The wise know how
Some deny all that is known
Others captivate the love
To the future's unknowns.
