We’re all people man! Why you gotta hate?
People of my brethren
Fighting among themselves
In the country that borders
The one i was born in.
Black on black violence
I’ve been stunned into silence.
So watch on in ambivalence
As the ambulance driven by a white man
Sings it’s sad siren song.

This poem was inspired by the recent xenophobic attacks that have transpired in South Africa as well as in Zimbabwe.
I am lost for words so i don’t have much to say, hence i just preferred to pen this poem and publish it with a wish that all forms of violence will diminish.
