Let it out…

Everyone wants to be free,
Free like a bird,
That flies allover,
Without boundaries,
Or restrictions,
Singing on trees.

To fly away,
To where the heart pleases,
Flapping the wings freely to,
The rhythm of the heart,
Every moment of time,
Not under instruction,
Not under intruders,
But for the freedom of it all.

To sing the heart out,
Loud and wide,
A song for the loved one,
To be heard by all there is,
Express my joys,
And sorrows,
All in equal measure,
Never bothered,
Nor afraid,
Of the world,
Or the creatures,
Roaming allover,
Useless they are.

Until the end

Crazy thoughts on the side,
Crazy heads,
Or is it the feet?
The hands?
The eyes or ears?
No one knows,
Not even own self!

Twisted wishes,
Twisted minds,
Twisted feelings,
Twisted lifestyles,
Twisted laughter,
Twisted words,
Twisted cold world.

Till the end,
Wishing for everything,
Wants everything,
For everyone,
For myself,
Just for selfishness,
Supplying all that is about me,
Me for me,
Not caring about the rest,
Life is about me.

Time to stop worrying,
And start being angry,
Angry at the system,
Start up,
Stand up,
For what is ours,
Not theirs,
Not mine,
For continuity,
For prosperity,
Until the end,
The end of everything,
The end of time.

That was

The broken promises,
Broken lives,
Broken wings,
That have,
That were,
Once alive, but,
Are just that,
The past that never was,
Life goes on.

Live for the moment,
You will win in some,
You will lose in others,
It doesn’t mean that all is lost,
It could just be,
The stepping stone,
Of the best that is yet to come,
Life goes on.

Memories of times gone by,
The games played,
The visits, journeys,
The sacrifices,
The envy, pain, foes, friends,
The Love, love, love,
All long, long and about,
Everything, our surroundings,
Gone, gone with the wind may be,
For the best of it all,
Life goes on.

Some say goodbye,
Some stick,
Some dangle precariously,
Like soot strands,
Let go of some,
Wishes, wishes, dreams,
That never were,
Allowed to blossom and,
Continue with all,
That is in this journey,
Our escape, strong enough to,
Take the dreams,
And make them ours,
For the life that we live.

Alive

Life,
Truth,
Freedom,
Can it ever be real?
Was life meant,
To be the way I see it?
Maybe one day,
Reality will dawn on me,
And it will all come to,
Pass in Love.

I don’t know how,
It will feel,
Everything revolves,
Around our being,
My feelings for you,
Waiting for the day,
That all will be just,
About you and me,
In our little world,
Where love prevails over,
Everything else,
Never ending and,
A climax of our being.

Never be alone,
Promise to always be there,
For us when we need each other,
Even in the darkest of moments,
When all seems to have been lost,
Continue to be part of me,
And me part of you,
Believing and living all there is,
Rushing for the true love,
Together in kindness,
Seeing it, beneath and deep in you.

For the time I have known you,
Been trying to understand myself,
All without success,
Only hope is you,
Living for you, your love,
You make me levitate,
Empty spaces,
Little space, yes, little,
Making me feel better,
I know I am well,
Not for the moment,
But for a lifetime.

Beneath all my thinking,
My body,
My soul,
My everything,
The never dying spirit,
Longs for you,
To feel alive once again,,
To be there with you,
For you and for me.

For the moment

Sometimes, deep inside of me,
I long for the moment of freedom,
And love in truth,
I question so much,
But I am not afraid,
Afraid to want you,
Even more than I have had you,
You make me see life differently,
Where all is green and full of love.

Just to think of how it,
Could be I wish for more,
For where I want to be,
I need to realize,
And come out,
Out of the lost reality,
To start enjoying,
Every moment that,
Passes by all with you.

Yes. Sometimes I act stupid,
But you always pick me up,
Tolerating all my crap,
You try to live for the moment,
Letting me be comfortable and moulded,
In a better way,
I wish all this could be real,
For all moments in space.

A song of you fills inside of me,
I have grown into a crazy self,
That lingers allover,
Waiting for the moment,
The moment that hasn’t arrived,
Longing for that,
When you will sing,
Sing to me,
Deep beneath,
Under the dark skies,
All to cure me,
Of my longing,
And love will forever blossom,
For the moment.

Hadi mwisho

Maisha ya sasa,
Tunaabudu na kuliwaza,
Lini maadili na ukakamavu,
Wa kila mtu utamfanya kunawiri,
Bila ya chuki au mabaya kuwafuata?

Naogopa mie maskini,
Hali yangu ya unyonge sijiwezi,
Elewa wazi kuwa sijimudu,
Pahala hapa pamejaa,
Upotovu, balaa na matanga,
Tujaribu kuepukana na kukopa,
Maisha tunayoishi ili tujimudu tuwezavyo.

Maswali ya ushupavu,
Mawili kati ya yote kumi,
Ni ya uovu,
Yote kwa ajili ya mvuto,
Mvuto wa kujifananisha,
Na wale walio na uwezo,
Uwezo kama sio unafiki,
Na dhulma za kimaisha.

Mtazame aliye chini yako,
Mtazame aliye juu yako,
Mtazame aliye katikati,
Katikati labda anapanda,
Labda anaporomoka,
Mwisho mtazame yule pale,
Aliyepitia haya yote,
Hata akaporomoka kwa ajili ya mvuto,
Mvuto wa majira ya usasa baadaye.

Mara kadha wa kadha,
Kila mja huwa ana nia,
Nia ya kujiendeleza,
Ingawa atagongwa,
Ama kuzuiwa na kukanyagwa,
Au kutemewa mate,
Yeye hujivuta ili kujikwamua,
Ili asiteremshwe chini zaidi na pale alipo.

Ama wakati mwingine,
Na sio kila mara,
Utapatana na waja,
Waliopata mvuto wa kujiinua,
Na kufika upeo wa juu kimaisha,
Na kudhibitisha kuwa bado kunao,
Mvuto wenye utu na maendeleo.

Tuungane na tuvutane,
Bega kwa bega,
Ili kijiinua kijamii,
Kuimarisha maisha ya sasa na kesho,
Kwani dunia hii sio yetu,
Ni mali ya kukomboa kwa wale wajao baada ya sisi kuondoka.

Labda

Ama tuseme tumenawiri. Ndio tumenawiri. Kivipi labda ndio italeta utata. Tusijiulize wala tusijitie mashakani na wale walio ushukani kwa kupeleleza vipi tumenawiri. Tukubaliane tu kuwa tumenawiri. Na pia tunaendelea zaidi ya hapa tulipo. Hivi karibuni, tuseme zaidi ya karne moja, labda tutayaona na kukubaliana nao kuwa tumenawiri.

Miundo msingi ya kila sehemu ya uchumi wetu haipo tena. Tumekwama katika dunia ya kuwaza na kuota yale ya kale…kama kulikuwa na kale! Kale haikuwepo. Ni fikra tu za wale wanaodhania hapo awali kila kitu kilikuwa sawa zaidi na sasa. Kile tunachosahau ni kwamba nyakati zimebadilika. Mwongozo wa kufanya hili au lile umegeuzwa kwa namna nyingi mno. Kwa hii sababu, hatuwezi kulinganisha ya sasa na ya kale.
