Vote Wisely

I live beside my neighborGot water running through my showerStill can’t believe it,Can’t believe it mistook my bathroom for the racetracks. The other day,I had to walk into my house through the doorTakes opening the window these daysFor my room to get some fresh air ventilation. If those statements sound somewhat dumbThen you must know […]

Dead

It is as far as an arm’s lengthAs short as a high jump poleIt’s a special kind of too close for comfortToo far to touch. It’s a light – a glint of hope, yet torches all it touchIt’s a maddening kind of paradox. The lowest of lowsRight there at the apogeeConcerned yet insensitiveDamning with the […]

Lovers, world’s edges apart.

Some days, I’m like a man with no expectations I look forward to what’s similar to what I’ve got in my arms, Nothing. But such days are blue moon rare, Lucky for me. Every other day, There’s butterflies in my tummy And you on my mind. I’m dotting Is through iMessages, And crossing Ts through […]

What a Nation?Where the rigging of Elections is free and fair,Where those who determine who wins the votes,Are not those that cast the votes,But those who count the votes,Controlled by those in the custody of […]

I’ll never understand change.

I’ve witnessed valiant hearts seamlessly swayLike flexible hips I’ve seen the most rigid of menBend and twirl, at the bidding of one mind.I’ll never understand change. I’ve found mortality leave immortal legaciesI’ve seen bitter leaf lose its tasteAnd hurry lose its hasteI’ve found yesterday’s fine fabric of love fray today. There’s more I could say, […]
