Forgiveness

I scrub away your burden
Down the drain
Everything softens in the shower.

  1. haha amazing! When I saw the title I expected something long and maybe wise words for me to learn something.
    But you are right, what more do we need then a shower ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Kumalo, short but very powerful. The careful choice of imagery evokes a burden that could be emotional or physical – the use of shower and drain seal it by suggesting not just a softening but a cleansing hinting a feeling of being soiled by the activities of the other. I felt the pain and relief of the poetess as I read this short piece. Habari gani, Kumalo?

  5. The more one tries to avoid pain, the more pain insists. The way I see it, one is meant to live and learn and grow through pain.

    Pain does not go away but I think that how we perceive pain can change. Probably key.

    I feel a new poem arriving. Thank you for the inspiration Celestine. Have a peaceful week. ๐Ÿ™‚
