Natalia Molebatsi Poems
Hey music man 
- hey music man promise you will live a long very long time and when you die one day
This heart 
- this heart is built around string songs of tears and its occasional joys and endearments born to ‘boogey' beyond its melancholies
I wish you...happy 
- i wish you whole as words water a flower beneath the yellow rays of yearnings beyond the reach of growling pains
Hello journey people 
- hello journey people hello welcome to these pages these are the stages on our journey hello, goodbye 
After the war 
- after the war, what do we do with the guns and the machetes?
