: Rise


This is for the girl who didn’t ask to be born, but here she stands in a world that hates the women that reside in it. From scripture to present day, treated as incapable. Please hold on, you’re destined for greatness.

The girl who was only 11 years old when her innocence was ripped off her soul…

Ek herhaal jou
sonder begin of einde
herhaal ek jou liggaam
Die dag het ’n smal skadu
en die nag geel kruise
die landskap is sonder aansien
en die mense ’n ry kerse
terwyl ek jou herhaal
met my borste
wat die holtes van jou hand namaak

Union Gardens, Pretoria, South Africa
En ek groet met die wete dat ek jou agterlaat in jou liefdelose bestaan…
