Kabelo O. Ntamane 2003 (Matatiele)

life was a lot simpler then
when all we did was
run straight into the rushing wind
and feel it as it slaps our faces
or walk the streets during autumn
and witness mother nature
as she withers away
i wonder if you miss those days
or if you still remember
the moments we once shared
even a couple of solemn weeks after
our raging inferno was put off
by feelings beyond our understanding
