Kujitilia…

Yale yaliyotokea
Yote yaliyotokea
Wote waliyakemea
Vijilima tulivikwea
Tamu tulivyoletewa
Kulambia kwa umbali
Unafiki na umbeya
Hautatukazia hapa
Kuzidi tutazidi
Kutulia na kuvinjari

Jua moyoni unaniua
Nakuona tu ukipania
Japo sipo unanifatilia
Japo nahepa unanitilia
Japo sitaki unaning’ang’ania
Una nini we?

Anayekupenda na akupende
Anayekuchukia aende
Apotelee mbali
Un’ompenda mtilie afurahie
Mjazie utamu
Hadi ashikwe na wazimu!

My Daughter…

When you sit down to eat with someone important, keep in mind who he is. If you have a big appetite, restrain yourself. Don’t be greedy for the fine food he serves; he may be trying to trick you.

Don’t eat at the table of a stingy person or be greedy for the fine food he serves. “Come on and have some more,” he says, but he doesn’t mean it. What he thinks is what he really is. You will vomit up what you have eaten, and all your flattery will be wasted.

Don’t try to talk sense to a fool; he can’t appreciate it. Pay attention to your teacher and learn all you can.

Listen, my child, be wise and give serious thought to the way you live. Don’t associate with people who drink too much wine or stuff themselves with food. Drunkards and gluttons will be reduced to poverty. If all you do is eat and sleep, you will soon be wearing rags.

Show me people who drink too much, who have to try out fancy drinks, and I will show you people who are miserable and sorry for themselves, always causing trouble and always complaining. Their eyes are bloodshot, and they have bruises that could have been avoided. Don’t let wine tempt you, even though it is rich red, and it sparkles in the cup, and it goes down smoothly. The next morning you will feel as if you had been bitten by a poisonous snake. Weird sights will appear before your eyes, and you will not be able to think or speak clearly. You will feel as if you were out on the ocean, seasick, swinging high up in the rigging of a tossing ship. “I must have been hit,” you will say; “I must have been beaten up, but I don’t remember it. Why can’t I wake up? I need another drink.”

Truth, wisdom, learning, and good sense—these are worth paying for, but too valuable for you to sell.

Let your father and mother be proud of you; give your mother that happiness.

….From Proverbs 23…

That call…

That call
Whatever was triggered
The joy
The smiles
The goodness
The happiness
The sweeteness
The greatness
The feeling of being
That someone out there
Remembers you
Thinks about you
Worries about you
That you are missed
Is the greatest feeling ever
Can never be matched
Or compared to!

It felt that great
When you reached out
You swallowed your pride
To keep the fire burning

You are great
Always be treasured
For who you are
Your strength
Will keep you going places
And if it never comes out
As expected you wouldn’t
Be the one losing out
You already changed a soul
For better
That is what really matters
At the end!

Our way…

image

We maim and kill each other. Why? For Religion. Sex. Gender. Race. Colour. Tribe. Family. Clan. Politics. All that oppresses the other for the benefit of a few.

What is the benefit of all this? Death upon death. Heaps and heaps of ill gotten wealth. Power. Power in the heads. Empty heads. Filthy thoughts. Hatred. Profiling humanity. Discrimination. Retarded minds and a rotten society.

image

We are a religious society. Proclaiming and spreading what ought to and giving a blind eye to the evils in our society. Preachers. Politicians and ‘leaders’ ( if there are any left) drink from the same pot. Oppresion of the masses is their food. Lecturing us on the way of society – their way. Not our way.

image

My prayers. Yes, sometimes I pray for our society. My prayer is to see humanity living together. Love spreading allover. It is only by getting rid of religion and its sycophants that we will achieve self actualization and peace! Religion is the single major cause of conflicts in our today’s societ.

Blame it on me

Tired of sitting on the fence
Sometimes it can be unfair
Might just well play the game
Was longing to see you
Just to know how you doing
Hopefully you’ll be smiling
On the thought of seeing me
Thought you would pass your regards
To find out if I am fine
It doesn’t matter anyway now
Tell me you are all well now
Blame it on me

image

I am tired of taking the blame
Wanted to call
Thought of texting
My mind got distracted
All seemed to change
This is not an easy game
The blame continues
For something that I didn’t do
Everywhere seems the same
Everything is different now
Maybe I should have done better
Play the game your way
Blame it on me.

Bado tupo…

Yupo haondoki
Labda apendwe apendeke
Kudekezwa anadekezwa
Kikiwa moto anapuliziwa
Ananyweshwa
Analishwa
Kukiwa joto anapepetwa
Baridi anazuiwa
Vitu adimu anapewa
Vyote vilivyo halalishwa
Muhimu kupendwa
Muhimu zaidi kupenda
Walimwengu mna mabaya
Wachaneni nasi tule raha
Vya dunia tufurahie
Hadi mwisho utakapofika!

In my tiny head…

I could be wrong
But I feel that this is true
Lately I have been lost
Sleep walking at times
All I do is roam in my head
All over these streets
My mind seems unsettled
Soul searching maybe
The dangers are real
And one day it will
Come to pass

I may be but new
Trying to crawl
But eventually I will walk
And even run
To places I dream of
Touch the right places
Be given to
In fullness deserved

Been a long time
Easily became weak
Slipped into this
Awareness lost
Untill it becomes all messy
Get down and start
Allover from the bottom
Try again

I want to get in
I am scared
Not sure what awaits
It could be real
Ruined I might be
Trying ain’t an option
Time will play its part
Keep on moving

Wrong timing
You want in
Could be
A new beginning
Tell me you feel me
The air smells the same
When do I stop?

Got to satisfy this urge
Ahead I must forge
All negativity to dodge
The uncertainty to purge
Important to keep the pledge
But not to sit on the edge
