Rain Pouring in my Eyes

by  Thandi Morweng

Rain pouring in my eyes
Reflecting my soul

Xenophobic attack while I was in my mother’s womb
Playing with her fallopean tube

She couldn’t rain like a wild animal

Me kicking like a ball in her stomach
It was my shelter, my provider

But the furious time came for me
I was born under a tree in the name of xenophobia
