"There are plenty of prophets and kings who would have given their right arm to see what you are seeing but never got so much as a glimpse, to hear what you are hearing but never got so much as a whisper." Luke
I never knew what I know
Perhaps I still don't know
But what I've always known
Is that I stood firmly
With all of them
We stood firmly
Sound in body mind and soul
As bright as God's blinding light
As beautiful as full bloom roses
So splendid in all their colours
Not even King Solomon in all his splendour was as beautiful as one of these!
Under the spotlight of summer's delight
We stood firmly
Still as isiziba (ocean depths)
United in body mind and soul
hearts beamed with joy
We sang in unison
Who was not to be?
Aren't I from a people
Who's voices rose to defeat the oppressor
Did my ancestors not crush you
With their wholesome spirit?
I am MaMpondo from Pondoland Kingdom
Mangwane from the Ngwane Kingdom
I am a being who's breadth is immortal
I'm a mask of beauty
As ancient as God decided for me to be
I never thought it was important for me to explain myself
I was busy with the task at hand
Matters of God's Kingdom for all that is
God's time is essential
God's time is NOW
One has to carry out the task at hand without delay for whatever mission one is assigned to
Perhaps if you played your role excellently well
Instead of being deceitful
You wouldn't have found the need to question my roots
Not that you bothered me
Its your breadth!
I decide about me
You not my King
You king of sorrow!
Didn't God ask you?
"Should you not fear me?" declares the LORD. Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it." Jeremiah
I guess you never knew me!
I am MaJola from the same kingdom that that gave birth to Baba Jola,
