Tell Your Story by Lebo Mashile

After they’ve fed off your memories Erased the dream from your eyes, broken the seams of your sanity and glued what’s left together with lies after the choices and the voices have left you alone And the silence Grows solid Adhering like flesh to your bones They’ve always known Your spirit’s home lay in your gentle sway to light and substance But, jaded mirrors and false prophets have a way Of removing you from yourself You who live with many names You who walk with a million faces None can eliminate your pain Tell your story Let it nourish you Sustain you and claim you Tell your story Let it feed you Heal you and release you Tell your story Let it twist and remix your shattered heart Tell your story Until your past stops tearing your present apart.
