Halala all you wordsmiths! FunDza is so proud of our Fanz writers! We are delighted to showcase this poem by one of our talented young writers to celebrate this wonderful avenue for self-expression. Good poetry can be a great mental and emotional pick-me-up. Read and enjoy…

Poetry is to words what song is to sound

Strong, humble
Loving, caring, working
Flower, rock, shoulder, hustler
Cooking, feeding, washing
Happy, sad


Tell us: What words does ‘Mom’ conjure up for you?
