Read Poem: HeartBeat2019, by Lawrence Mathebula.

Still lifting, toiling ever a
sound beating
Awake you’re on, even when
I am sleeping
Tonight in darkness, still in
the light I awake
For all the breath’s full and
half intake
Of sips and sighs a spell,
‘Gainst death a stride excels
In the morning, early dawn
Again, sun’s fire on
Horizon stand a half
Till full fire’s enough,
Warmth’s given to my heart’s
Life beloved ever a part
Of me is found in thee,
That new hour I should see!
