Attitude

Because I am white
you paint me racist.

Because I am Afrikaans
you paint me racist.

Because I fly the old flag
you paint me racist.

Because I sing “Die Stem”
you paint me racist.

Because I oppose your destructive methods
you paint me racist.

Because I insist on quality work
you paint me racist.

You do not know my heart
yet you paint me racist.

If you carry-on like this
you may paint me racist.

Alone

To each his own
the light of his inner self
his hopes
his fears
his life.
That my friend is yours to hold.
Alone.

Tye Verander

Die aap was ‘n sprokie simbool
as jy sy stert afkap
‘n liefling kind.

Die aap is ‘n simbool van vuur en klip
as jy sy stert afkap
oproer en masse.

Light

The life of a shadow is but brief
in the absence of light there is no shadow
therefore the shadow stays hidden
but if light is present it will reveal the shadow
if a shadow is surrounded by light then a shadow cannot survive

as light cannot produce a shadow
light is pure
therefore…
surround yourself with light.
