Ode To Hope’s Lament

Ke fela jalo

Serame se re fatla

bodutu bo ipile matla

phefo ya foka

lesedi la dikela

maikutlo a sekama

monna a lwala

a kwala lokwalo lo loleele

are

Reetsang ka tlhwafalo!

Gore le utlwe

mme le seke la be la fetwa ke lefoko lepe le sa le utlwa sentle.

Another session

more depression

lonely confessions

what’s the intention?

The lost us

The cost of us

The love of trust

Confuse I must

So a heart won’t bust

A future of us

Maintain the lust

Cry on my bust

Be my fuss

Don’t want to keep it hushed

Keep my feelings flushed

Your sight I blushed

It’s not a bluff

My love stuff

Is yours enough?

See how Hope sings crushed?

Reetsang

ka tlhwafalo

jaaka Bogosi bo kgaoganwa

Moreti a pallwa ke go kwala

A sorry state of affairs

Confusion

The story made of despair

Illusion

A lowly start

left bare

Conclusion…
