I am paraphrasing, of course. "My only fear is that when they are turned to loving they will find we are turned to hating." -Reverand Msimangu, Cry, The Beloved Country (a book by Alan Paton)


The way the sky looks after it rains,
Sings to me in such a way that makes my heart leap.
The dark gray slightly fades,
And as it passes, animals weep.

Brown hair and almond eyes,
Pulled into a heap.
For when I die, the whole world cries,
And the ocean withers deep.

My name, Mina,
The world is my song.
And as I await the morning,
The sky grows ever strong.

For the whole world seems to think of my eyes,
As they think of the beauty of a clear blue sky.


The author's comments:
I was assigned by my Honors English teacher to write a bio-poem about one of the characters in a book we had to read. I decided I wanted to share what I wrote to the rest of the world as well as Ms. Meister. I'm not one for poems so I hope you enjoy it.
