My Mother's Anger

As I entered the house
I met fire
I felt heat
her face turned to flames
her eyes, a flame
I realized her fury
I quivered
as if it was Winter
she was sweating
exuding sweat like a Summer's rain
breathing heavily
a thunder-like breath
I knew it was going to rain
I doubted 
whether backwards or forward
should I walk
if forward then I suffer
if backwards what if I fall ?
I turned with haste
I vamoosed
faster than her eyes
I left home
because of fear
not fear of sjambok
but embarrassment
of what I had done
so disrespectful
as we speak I am out-away
in an unknown forest
home I cannot return
because of my misbehaviour
that caused my Mother's wrath.
