They are carrying us - Khomotso Ntuli

They are carrying us – Khomotso Ntuli

They are carrying us

 

Who are these beings?

of such importance in

the creation process who are they?

Carrying perfectly balanced handmade weights

On their heads lies layered, who… are they?

 

These beings resembling steel in their strength

Stealing from themselves to provide, for anyone

Stale bread carried with a heavy heart

Right in the hot seat they never move an inch from their task,

and it’s only fair to ask who they are.

 

Balanced on their heads are the

heavy weights of justice

the very building blocks of these empires

on the same head, carrying the life giving water

to the very door of our compounds,

to the mouths of our bodies

 

Pangs and pans sounding with the clap of their hands

with the stomp of their feet

with the move of each finger as they signal the direction of

our lives

 

Given names, made lame from their given tasks

is their role acknowledged in the negation of these famines?

their feminine instinct appreciated?

 

She sang a song that made it clear from the sound of her voice

that these fragile heads are carrying the world

they are balancing our heads.

they lead our way into the world and

guide our path through the bush.

    Dankie bafwethu. I appreciate the love.

    I saw a lady carrying a bucket of water on her head, well we also see other mothers carrying many things like amazambane and u mgodla wa ma onion, sometimes together on one head, funny that she was walking like there was nothing on top. she also was not complaining, atleast on her face, or was the face blank, as you would see it on a man’s face when he is sitting in the back of that bakkie, going to do some construction work on a building he is not likely to set his foot in? Made me think long and hard.

    They are women, lovers
    Warriors of the kitchen
    they are caring, affection and love
    They are the hands of nurture

  • They’re those who will continue to point us to the bushes; even when its dark, they’ll provide no light.
