Death is a reality and COVID has made us numb to its reality. Grieving is not an online activity but a real life experience because we are not dumb.
Afghanistan is said to be the graveyard of superpowers. The statement has proven true yet again with USA pulling out after the Russian’s hopeless failure. The world awaits a new era but holds on to engendered stereotyping and hazy generalisations of Islam and Muslims.
South Africa is on the precipice of an agricultural disaster. From internationally acclaimed orange farms gone rotten to tea plantations becoming weeds; we might be in bread lines.
I wonder what the result would be if both sides had the same military hardware. Disproportionate warfare is cowardice.
I walked the graveyard and looked at names of those I should have praised. Long gone are they so I say:
Don’t put roses of my grave
to make regret your master and you the slave.
Be in my company and together we the live the gaze
of the One who is all worthy of praise.
