The Love Generation

A Poem

By Nomthandazo Nxabela

Like salient,
Hungry,
Indignant souls
They will out their torches-
At the drop of the baton
To unlearn
A damaging moral compass
And like
Beautiful birds twitter
They will sing
On a soapbox
Of freedom
To lend to broken hearts
A breath of hope
And they will stand
Woven into the fabric of life
By threads of peace
To soothe
All traces of pain;
Until it lulls away
All fear
Until it lulls away
All hurt.
