Poem of the week by Derick Matsengarwodzi


Love has the energy to defeat hate; it has the muscle to subdue prejudice.
It never salutes human boundaries. Love shall break all roadblocks.
It shall paint all those tainted hearts; and they shall know the true colour of love.
Together they shall sing eternal eternal love unto humanity.
A world plastered with stains of agony and hatred – saturated with clots of vengeance;
A world plastered with stains of hate and agony;
A land saturated with clots of vengeance, fed by egotism.
Guided by gloating egos; never fulfilled by the overflowing streams of sadness.
These streets are littered with gushing streams of anguish.  
Their guns blaze our emaciated hope all day. But nothing will ever defeat love.
For hate has lust but never last
