YOURS TO MAKE

Starting and finishing can be a mould you hold Many hearts have built darknesses for their shames While others build crimes to gobble their angelics There is power in your thoughts! II A thought has bought many nots for some A thought has bought many yays for most Stinky stuffs attract flies Too much sweetness […]

THROUGH THE ODDS

Pilots know the risk of turbulence …but still take chances of flying Captains know the viciousness of some storms …but still steer boats for days …using navigators and relying on winds Drivers know the many accidents …which whisper to deny them and others …lives …but still drive through the roads Living is a chance of […]

MOVING ON

When some winds …whip my wins And some suns …shatter my stock When some rains …wreck my rest And some dust …render me blind I let my being …shed the tears As I, like the statue of patience …wait II For though there be unmerciful winds …there are kind airs There are cruel suns …still […]

SPEAK OUT

Sometimes clouds of sadness can form in our minds Sometimes thunders of fears will blast through it As Will lights to die in an ill lightning When you reach that point …SPEAK OUT II If you don’t The sadness will rain down your inner …and flood your body Drowning your soul and killing your spirit […]

PURE EVIL

You came in like a weevil Wheeling my emotions in a swivel Hiding your claws of a devil Only to cage me in your evil II Now you, to my pain, dance As eyes record me a dunce When all I did was take a chance …based on your deceptive elegance III You’re like the […]

SWEAT BEFORE SHINE

4 Claps rap to trap warm wraps …for your presence …a celebration for your living …at your every appearance Many going miles to grow suns …on your face Your mood being the hood …of all seeing your good Slaps checking out craps walking …in maps of your enemies Yes, you’re the sun at its peak […]

LET’S TURN SAVAGES

We have been on this battlefield …for too long Enduring torture through fears …and hurts and pain …tasting shameful bites of sand Today let’s turn savages II Stone down your doubts …as David stoned down Goliath …and walk into the gate of confidence …for a fresh bath of your spirit …and a fill of can-do […]

WHEN A TRACTOR KNOCKS OUT YOUR FACTOR

Sometimes there are many winds …that pluck all our leaves of confidence …break the branches of our support …and leave us empty of pride At the centre stage of the sun II Sometimes …things that hit us …can take the sound …out of the throat of a singer …and drain all words …out of the […]

MAKE NO MISTAKE

Winners without woes …are like boxers who have never tasted punches The world was built …for the punch takers …students of problems …truck pushers of hurdles …curious travellers slapped with many shut outcomes To find their ways through the puzzle of suffering …to success …always armoured with determined spirits …questioning souls …and fatigued bodies II […]

UNSEEN TEARS

Frights …hiding in furs of goats …are seen as follies …even in their fearsome jumps II Wounds …itching in wombs …are felt by none but the in-hidden-hawker …no matter how much they bleed III There is a world within this world Which knows what you carry And feels how you try A world within this […]

IN TRIAL

As the boughs break in aim …for your best And the guns shoot in aim …for your gains Let none see the spear of fear …aiming at your sanity II It is a battlefield …of breaking and broken It is an unfairness ring …of reasoning and reckoning It is a bandying court …of cutting and […]

PRIDE TO DEATH’S FALL

The fingers of days have connived with that of months Joined in by hours and minutes, seconds and nano-seconds Crowned by years to selectively Choose the best part of this heart To dig foundations of pain Building storeys of unforgettable loss through grave deprivation But I tell you today You will search from my hair […]

A BIRD IN FLIGHT

THE STRENGTH OF LEGS
