My name is Portia Tshuma Moyo, also known as PoshMagolide. I am a counsellor and HIV tester with the love of sign language interpreting.
I am a new poetess. l started writing in April 2020.
I am a member of Poets and Writer’s Den (PAWD) and OCTAsquare WhatsApp based poetry groups, where l have the privilege to learn more on poetry.
I have featured in “Inyathi” e-magazine twice in their December 2020 and January 2021 editions.
I am involved in a collective anthology by Poeticblood Publishers in Botswana, which is yet to be published. I also write with the Gourd of Consciousness Poetry.
Poetry is my passion. I look forward to future ‘poetic’ endeavors.
Done and Dusted by PoshMaGolide I have made a Decision, Disaster occurred, Divorce is an option, Doubt has no room. Dead with fear, Down and Defeated l feel, Deceived l was, Dispirited l became, Deliberately hurt, told l deserved it. Distressed l sob, no comforter not one. Disease tested, positive results disclosed. It’s too Dark, l am so Depressed. Determined for Change, My destiny is destroyed. My Health Degrades, Demoted at work. Discouraged torn apart. Disconnected am alone. Dejected and rejected, Disrupted l can't love again, Deliver me Oh! Lord. Dirty all seem, damaged counsel me. Doomed for life will l be? Abracadabra, make me disappear It’s Done and Dusted am assured.
