The other side …

A brilliant video with subtitles and I wish that Zuma – and his allies, which includes some other people across the globe – would watch this.

I’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
Dear God
I come from two countries

both need water.

later that night
I held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?
