Miracle of Life

  I never thought my life would amount to anything. When I ran away to Mombasa to commit suicide I was done with life. 16 was my end. When that matatu hit me in town that May 5th 2005, I couldn’t believe I came out with no fracture, no blood clot. As hard as my […]

Be Art; Life Lessons

The heartbreaks, the noise, the uncertainties, and the void. You wake up one day to a stranger’s body. You didn’t even know when you began changing. City life is a façade. There is no milk and honey in the streets like they think back in Ugenya, Masiro Kathieno. You’d rather that life; the quietude of […]

My Unwritten Poem

There have been poets before the sun rose today Who weaved words and gave them life eternal But you, You are my unwritten poem No words I find that befit the crust of your existence I tell you, How I wish I could play the orutu, But your presence in silence is music enough To […]

Only Yesterday

  There was a sun that shone on my shoulder Her friendly rays sparkling Our hands flirted, unashamedly Drawing love hearts in the profound air The grass on which our souls dined Flowery, Drinking the enriching dew That spilled its wondrous magic Upon our naked innocence Only yesterday I sat by the ocean shore Watching […]

Cave Bird

  I know a place Where wings don’t fly And honey flows in dreams The sun is placed behind bars Where darkness feels right Comfort, the life Dead comfort There is a bird That lives inside a cave Oblivious of love Or the flowers That give colour to breath She wants a life In a […]

It’s Not Okay!

  You will hate this poem Because it speaks of that which you fear You will hate this poem Because it says that which you don’t want to hear This poem is in tears Wetting your mind with questions about life Yourself It cries for the dead Those who do not feel what it means […]

Ladder To Life (Excerpt from my book ‘On Your Way To Wise Road’)

  I have felt the heat of the scorching sun and the strength of the blowing wind. I have tasted the sand with every thud to the ground. My mouth has broken. I have bled, sweated emotions far much beyond the natural. With every drop there is a lesson, sometimes too hard, sometimes so sweet. […]

Love Can Be Foolish, But It Shouldn’t Be Stupid!!

The heart sparkles with emotions  that very time you’ve found someone new. It’s like a whirlwind that hits  you! You want that feeling to stay infinite. It tastes special, fragrant  and unique. It gets into you the more you spend time with them. We all  love it. Oh! Even the aged. It respects them not. […]

Yourself Be!!

I like talking about young people. I’m one myself. I feel a lot of problems we face are brought about by ourselves. The world has had its histories, of people who did tremendous things against all odds, those who turned out to be role models and pace setters – be they scientists, academicians, artistes and […]

BE THAT HEART HARD!!

Be the wind that blows calm That heart that hurts But still with love some Be the grass with dew when morning comes Cold in the dawn But still with a soul so warm Sing your life out In happiness roam And when cometh the storm Whisper hope if you can’t it talk Be that […]
