Our eyes meet mid-stride, The shy smile you try to hide, Warm and inviting me to your side, If I find words bridging the divide, Don’t look away before I have my say, I like the way you look today, So would you stay; make my day, Or will you again come my way? I … Continue reading Coy
I have been on the roam, On a thousand roads home, none leading back to your smile, So would you wait a while? Its selfish to ask, But I have put myself to task, Wracking my brain, For a single thought train, To explain why it's not the same, Saying your name. Vague and vain, … Continue reading Stranded
Look how far we've fallen Out of touch, And as such, Your eyes are swollen. With a tight lip, And a sudden gulp Your heart beaten to a pulp Too broken to keep. I wait out the silence, Until you shudder, To revel in my plunder, With acts of violence. I wrote songs of pride, … Continue reading Rebel

Like a storm, yearns for calm, I want you in my arms, To shelter you from harm. Daughter of the Nile, Bless me with your smile, I want to see your glow, Like watching sunsets ashore. You draw me in like an undertow, And I adore you more. You will always have my ears, … Continue reading Nyankiir
I drag along History of warsongs Dancing to drum beats While I stomp my feet. Can you feel the craze, The hate in my eyes ablaze, Raising my arms in praise, Of the old ways. I mock my enemy's defeat, Kicking dust at my feet, Dancing wildly to the beat, In the mid summer heat. … Continue reading Locks.
