Nomfundo Bala’s poem

I say it is simple mathematics…

When you add one to one it makes two.

But when you subtract one from one it leaves you with nothing

What I’m trying to say is that with simple mathematics – in a sense that when we come together and do things like this.

Then we become one but not just an ordinary one.

But a united one.

We become a community.
