A tribute to Thuthuzela Care Centres

by June Madingwane

Thuthuzela, Thuthuzela: A sign of hope and comfort
A haven
For violated bodies,
A cocoon
For tormented souls,
And a cushion
For troubled minds.

Thuthuzela, Thuthuzela: A sign of hope and comfort
Where frawns are replaced
By smiles
Where tears are replaced
By contentment,
Where despair is replaced
By hope, healthy life and justice

Thuthuzela, Thuthuzela: A sign of hope and comfort
Where wrongdoers
Are brought to book,
Where the wronged
Are treated with respect,
Where the wronged
Are encouraged
To recover mentally,
Where wounds
Are allowed to heal
Without pressure.

Thuthuzela, Thuthuzela: A sign of hope and comfort,
A nest for the young and -not so- young,
A nest for the rich and not-so-rich….
Thuthuzela, Thuthuzela, A nest for All!
