Love, Hope and Fidelity--By Ndongolera C. Mwangupili--Malawi

Love, Hope and Fidelity

Like wine, let our love mature with time
For time tells the tales of time.

Like a seed, let our hope shoot out
For, from a shoot, fruits shoot out.

Like light, let our fidelity brighten our journey
For our destiny needs a bright journey

Ndongolera C. Mwangupili works as a Senior Inspector of Schools in Malawi. He has vast experience as a teacher of English and Bible Knowledge. Many of his short stories, poems and essays have been published in the Malawi News and Weekend Nation.

His poem “The Genesis” was anthologized in The Time Traveller of Maravi: New Poetry from Malawi. His other poem “Letters to a Comrade” is published online in India on He believes that there is a thin line between fiction and reality. All that people write is a re-creation of what is already known to the writer and exists not only in the mind of the writer but also outside the writer, therefore, fiction is actually facts written as if they are not facts. He is married to Angella, and they have two daughters Mary Magdalena and Princess Cleopatra.
