Element of beauty

Some are tall as hills
Germs die once they blink
Trees leaves fall and lay
Under such feet on the way….

Let’s start with me;
Hehehehehe… I often think
God looked the other way
When His hands were moulding me…

Often at times we say
Everyone is beautiful
Well, let us be frank
For at least today…

God was sleeping to say
When His hands was on a tool
Moulding both, white and black
Incomplete perfection to say…

Some people that I envy
Are to perfection in signs
Of awesomeness and never awful
Making lovers like me turn fools

For He was so happy
When He carved out some designs
Enamouringly beautiful
From heads to the toes…

Overhauling Cable

The wire ran around the fence
With an overhauling thoughts
To renovate the driven snow
Replacing it with things impure.

Vibrating; church rats are no more poor
Referring to life of being decent
Until judgment, no one is sure
Why not live life freely on earth.

Solid as rock

God so love the world,
That he sent His son…
He loves, to die,
So we might be saved
So the bible says…

If great sacrifice
That love brings is death
I am so scared
Of opening the door
And falling in love

But she whispered
“Cool your temper dear
You are my luck
My blind but strong faith
Solid as a rock”.

Individual Units of Life

Exchanging air, perusing space
Inside myself, in bold and fear
I wonder the secret ingredients
Used to cook up an existent
Applauded more by diversities
Separating the ups and downs,
Distinguishing right from left
Making beauty so crystal clear.

Narcissism

I began to see frost in flames
From frames and portraits of fame..
And the earth began to quake
Opening mouth to have a cake..

Voices scream; oh what an end… !
From the sky feathers shred
Heavens seems to open mouth
All I laboured for then fell out.

Collapsing with the dreams I had,
Then I realized I was bad
Living comfortable in vanity
And narcissm of reality..

A bridge too far


It is a bridge too far
When grace finds thou and
Uplifts thy to run life race,
On a platter of gold
And thou keeps playing
Ducks and drakes with food
Whereas people are dying;
It is a bridge too far.


It is a bridge too far
Faking marriage proposal
Just to hit and run.
It is a bridge too far
Deriving sweet pleasure
From a crocodile’s tears
While capitalizing
On the gullible.


It is a bridge too far
If thou hath down
And feeling like
Hope for tomorrow
Is but a voicemail
And the only option
Chose is to commit suicide;
It is a bridge too far.


It is a bridge too far
When thou go miles
Just to murder smiles.
It is a bridge too far
Replacing felicity
With sadness while
Breaking bones with
Sticks and stones.


It is a bridge too far
Forgetting that life is
A hair’s breadth wide
Leaving like a god
And belittling all.
“For the sake of humanity,
Dear extremist and suicide bomber;
…It is a bridge too far”.

Limerick: Protecting you

You appreciate life while running a race
Unaware that crossing lines, is all by grace
If only you knew,
That He thinks of you…
You will appreciate, His unknown face.

Sincerely I bet, none can ever count
The arrows He impedes at sleepless night,
And yet you backslide
With no shame to hide
Disregarding His pretty gift of breathe.

Your thoughts are wile, clock fast and occupied
Living for moments round and round the pie
Losing track of time
Making beets with lime
Gradually forgetting that mortals die.

Salvation is but a personal race…
Becomes the favorite line you embrace
While eating your cake
Whereas he stays awake
Ordering His Angels to guide your case

Haven’t you read Psalm 91 to the end
Honestly humans will give daily bread
Expecting to take
But He stays awake
Protecting you from things that want your head.

Breaking norms

Lord keep me off “negative tongue”
And anyone that speaks ill of me.

Envelope me with your divine rays
Seal a stamp on me “thou shalt touch”.

Let no postman, hinder my grace
God give me strength, give me wit

To overcome whatsoever
Entity and who they might be….

Extinguish them if they all come
To torment or mock me in any form

For I have lived for this my turn
For my sake, dear Lord; break the norms.

Hypocritical extrovert

He stays in clusters
Not far from the trash

His converse and clump
Always fetch a punch

Brawling, war ridden
Everything he touch.

Man of religion
Brainwashes the church.

He ships and worships
With a faith that lurch

He is that example
Folks critic the church.

Filling station

At the filling station,
White and black smoke
Attempts to make us choke

Rims kept spinning around
Heading to where hush sound
The birds sang, horns buzz

Insane walked free, sane squeeze
Queuing, suddenly saying bye
Seconds pass, others passed by

Young and old breath trooped in
For all sort of tanks refill
All colors present blended as one

Underneath the dark light
Where canopies made a shade
No man or woman had a blade

‘Buy my own, buy from me please
Many screamed, for hustle to ease
Some were smiling, others worried

But kept drinking and eating
Off the pocket for the items
They purchased, for desires

No apartheid, no damn favor
The doubled woman and working men
Sweat in pain for reward of labor

No one brought out divine crosses
Or craving ivory yet salvation
Lived in peace, with no bruises

Far beyond visible tribal marks
Two things we all had in common
Was to live and earn, as an atom.
