Healers Of A Crumbling World

A broken world
A burning fire
destroying even those who know no sin.

You, you will heal nations.
Poets, your words
Dancers, your moves
Writers, your stories.

In an open hole
we fall, never to rise.
A crumbling world
Crashing even those who are to come.

You, you will mend hearts
Painters, your pictures
Actors, your plays
Singers, your voices
Speakers, your words.

Perhaps money
has become honey
to the greedy.
Perhaps hate
has become our fate.
Perhaps love
is a dove
flying away, never to return.

But you, you will restore hope
You will replace nemesis with lightness
                   sickness with healing
You will mend hearts.
You will heal nations.

Biography
My name is Redeem Kadere. I am a 16 year old girl from Zimbabwe.
I am currently doing Grade 10 in South Africa. I have always viewed
poetry as a tool that can be used to heal hearts, to unite people from
different backgrounds and to make the world a better place.
