The Actual Dialogue by Mongane Wally Serote

Do not fear Baas.
It's just that I appeared
And our faces met
In this black night that's like me.
Do not fear--
We will always meet
When you do not expect me.
I will appear
In the night that's black like me.
Do not fear--
Blame your heart
When you fear me--
I will blame my mind
When I fear you
In the night that's black like me.
Do not fear Baas,
My heart is as vast as the sea
And your mind as the earth.
It's awright Baas,
Do not fear.
