Poetry from Malawi


In the context of poverty, particularly, when you live among people who lack basic needs, your voice is broken. It is broken because of crying day in and day out. However, in those crying intervals, there are also intervals of laughter and jokes. The famished people have time for love. They bear children who bring joy among them. That is the irony of life. I find myself in that context. The symbols of land, flames, nothingness and humanity run across this collection, reflecting the richness, the vagueness and the variety of life. The life of those lost in poverty yet struggling to survive and live.

In my attempt to find a voice, I have discovered that my voice is broken. And any attempts to gather the fragments together have proven to be futile. This is, therefore, a collection of my cries… Broken. That is why it is titled Fragments of my Broken Voice. The poems have been divided into five thematic chapters: cries of anguish, mating cries, cries of laughter, celestial cries and cries of sorrows. Come, join me in crying for we are a people who are born crying and are escorted to the grave with cries. Crying is our living. Crying is our survival.
