No Goodbyes, Not Just Yet

Good incense
warms up the room
with it's sweet fragrance

The incense may burn out
But the sweetness remains etched
Forever in the heart

Caesar's Rethought

What Caesar got
served the people proper
What Caesar got
is the reason the empire prospered
What Caesar got
didn't only benefit the rich
What our Caesar gets
Needs a lot of rethinking

Arms Open Wide

She’s a user, an abuser
Looks used and abused
Beaten and beat
Black sunken eyes
Lips swollen
Broken ribs
Palm slits
There’s no telling how far she’ll get

But in His eyes she’s beautiful
Lovely
Huggable, a darling
He forgives and forgets
Her cries He always accepts
For in His eyes
She’s His child
For her His arms will always open wide

She Got Me

She got my thoughts distorted, contorted
got me flying high
like a kite gliding the gentle East Wind
the float so soothing
my mind so preoccupied
on how to blow her mind

She got me curious
fired
the inner me inspired
pleasant thoughts and virtual walks
writing her my silly notes
sing-alongs and radio joints
My paper, my pen, my love, my heart

Wanasiasa na maboys

mahengri wanatafuna mei design ya miwa
kila kitu inawapitia wanataka kuimangia
ubao mingi, taki haiishi
na hio kumanga yote haiwashibishi
mtaani watoi wanadie
mamatha wanacry
inalazimisha maboys waingie crime
mtoo ziko mob
hakuna job
inabidi maboys wasake through kurob
