The Poetry Hub

Immerse yourself in the community of writing and creativity. The Hub is a place to share the great works of fellow creatives whom I greatly admire. Praising others is what makes my heart smile and so, l believe the Poetry Hub should become a platform that continues to grow by sharing the works of different writers, past and present.


The first poem is from my best, Tupac Amaru Shakur- The Rose that Grew from Concrete.

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack
in the concrete

Proving nature’s laws wrong it learned to walk
without having feet

Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams
it learned to breathe fresh air

Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else even cared!

About Me

My name is Lizette Tshowa Kabala, known as Lizza Tshowa through my writing.

I do hold a Bachelor degree in Public Health from Monash University. I have lately completed my BHSc with Honours in Bioethics and Health Law, from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.

Writing has always been my passion. Everything that I am, is my poetry. I am inspired by Tupac Shakur and I find great inspiration from thought-provoking topics, human rights and black consciousness, arts and literature; which stems my writing creativity.
