(Sevenling) The Sun Declares ~ Nsiki Gwala

The sunrise declares yet another day.
Birds' songs break through the silent dawn.
Crowds scatter across the lonely streets.

A conversation pulses: burdens that need be borne,
Dreams denounced by impossibility,
Promises whispered by the near future...

While History drowns in oblivion.
