i am afraid

I AM AFRAID I cannot express my views anymore Not stand in front of them anymore, I use to be afraid but now I am afraid. I use to be afraid of ghost at night, Snakes, dogs but now I am afraid… Afraid of my brother, afraid of my Sister. Sizothi kutheni na xa beziphathisa okwezinja? I use to be afraid but now I am afraid You go at hospital they take you, Go at church they bomb the church, At school they kidnap you… I am afraid of getting out of line Today I have a sharp weapon to Kill. God forgive me, devil come Face me, talking failed me. If it was illness I would cure it If it was disease still cure it, But it’s not a virus, not a Sickness, its stupidity and Humanity dying! I AM AFRAID.
