Speechless Words

  I’ve been a lady Walking naked across cold streets Looking for a place to rest my soul These buildings have no love at all But they…they hide my secrets Pick me up when I fall At my place where angels come There is a fire we light Where we eat food for thought Wisdom […]

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 […]

Be A Child

  I know you are a champion You have conquered fields and won crowns You have been carried up by crowds Walked on deserts, Touched your tongue on burning coal And eaten hot pepper, bare Been happy and you’ve frowned Been lost and found You have flown above clear skies Had clouds singing, calling you […]

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 […]

Curved Painting

  Have you ever been to a well with talking waters That breathe life into your soul with silent words That love feels as sure as the sun in a hot desert But can get as cold as dew on a gloomy morning   Have you ever met your heart in someone’s And thought that […]

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 […]

  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. […]

I Am Not My Tribe

Sometimes I feel I know nothing about life But I do know something about Kenya I come from the gustily windy, hilly terrains of rural Ugenya Where huts form bungalow sorts of flawless beauty An ambiance of warm soothing atmosphere But really, I was born in Pumwani And all my life My home has been […]

I Am Not My Tribe

  I am a Luo by birth. If you ask me which tribe I’d rather be, I’d slap you! Today, if I introduced my girlfriend to my mother, the first thing she would ask me is her tribe, not even how we met. Where do people get the idea that Luos are proud, Kikuyus are […]

SARAH

  It was the last thing I saw coming That look in your eye Smooth sail That smell I feel when it has rained The soil’s scent, delight Your heart’s a walking light You are the greatest story of submission Days come upside down And in my sorrow, your solace Gives me a warm soothing […]
