Evolution (A Poem)

By Themba Mvula

With false ideologies

Our generation will march

With no clear destination

We shall travel

Our victim we spare not

Out of victimisation a revolution springs forth

Run by a system, raised in a system

We break the walls of Jericho

Cry out mother earth

For we shall conquer

Today you will stop all violence

Yet with violence we aim to progress

Your offspring rebels within thy womb

Men so desperate are after you

Show us the way and we will follow

Yet your will we despise

Show us your character

And nature will defy you

Born with transgressions

We outrageously kill all forms of wisdom

Love my neighbour I will

For tomorrow he buries me
