I Am Poem

Do not be mistaken This is not a poem I am the poem The reflection of a battle on fire The wings flying against the wind The eagle hungry for bait Because these words search for the living dead I am the unbelievable story you are yet to hear Do not be cheated by my […]

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. […]

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 […]

Dark Edge

Your luscious lips scare me They smear me with lies Sweet melodies of tempting hisses To your music like a drunk snake I want to dance But the sound is new to me Why is the sky gloomy? I am your piece of bread Which you twist in your tongue And I lay with powerless […]

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 […]

Silent Ladder

Am moving to another phase of life Where sex is sweeter And the Bible deeper Here, people look greener But my head’s not growing bigger   Am learning what it means to love a woman She cherishes little nothings And makes bubbles out of dying soap In her world, little things are big Like the […]

Lonely Woman

I watch you! Walk in the city streets With faces green, black and red Are we the citizens our freedom fighters bred? For whom they lost their precious lives in dirty bloodshed!   I watch you! Sleep in tendrest pretence Passing by beggars in your suits Your stomach fed Wearing scorching smiles But your heart’s […]

I Am My Own Man!!

  Pressure. That’s the word ringing in my mind. Confusion…and confusion. Am not sure what falling in love means anymore. But I am, it’s loving someone, right? Man-woman, woman-man, right? Men in my age live like they come from a different planet. Or at least the women in their lives make them. Well, we make […]

That Politician Is My Father!

I am seated in the lounge after a sumptuous supper, watching the evening bulletin. The news anchor utters a familiar name belonging to a man I see very regularly. In a few, the camera rolls showing where the latter is talking to a mass of people, selling himself to them about how he has been […]

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. […]
