Yamoria – Victim’s Apology | #PoemOfTheMonth : November

Nature has always been the backdrop of everything that happens on Earth. When it’s not giving the gift of life, it’s conveying beauty in it’s simplest form. Johannesburg based spoken word duo Yamoria have used natures’ elegance to put out a collection of their poems through a series called “Yamoria Sunsets”. One standout poem from the series that stuck with us was ‘Victim’s Apology’, an ode to the victims that this country continuously creates. It’s an outcry against the abuse that continues to wound the queens who were are meant to protect and cherish.
