VICTORY

Written by: Pt. Bojosi Ditshwele

There was silence across the land
People had been forced indoors
By the fear of living in the dark
On a thick black sky
Appeared multitudinous tiny stars
They seemed to be helpless
Defeated by the seemingly undefeatable darkness
Then from a shadowed horizon far east 
Ascended an angel, the moon
Her garment pure white as snow
She rose up very slowly and confidently
And fought bravely against darkness
Until he was reduced to ruins
And suddenly all over the place
Started a hullabaloo of cheerful fowls
The death of silence across the land 
Declared her victorious
The moon an artist; painted the sky in white
Carved the world into casted shadows 
Her victory melted fear away in the dying night 
And made the world look romantic instead
