Le ngane eyayizozalwa. 

Nanamuhla kusefana nakuqala.

Transitioning
by Rebekah O Reilly

The friendships I’d made,

The ones I’ve forgotten,

Feelings of freedom

and ones that turned rotten.

Free will
by Devin Creed

How subtle,

How winds of fate conquers free will,

DAMSEL DRAGONFLY
by Line Monique Gauthier

 

Damsel dragonfly

How I envy your freedom

Featherlight
