If only 

If only I could sing, My voice will echo through the earth, Trees dancing,mountains skipping, If only If only I could write, My ink will never run dry, Changing lives with every story, If only If only I could act, The screens will reel of my scenes, ‘Oscars’ will litter my shelf, If only If only you would let, That little light shine, Maybe the world will be a better place, If only you’d start NOW.

One God ?

I get on my knees, And pray to God, He answers, She faces Mecca, And prays to God, He answers. Who is this supreme being, That answers all and sundry, Yet turns the other way, When we kill in his name. Is there one God, Many gods, Or none at all?

Trust you 

I choose to trust you girl, Even though you’re miles away, And friends whisper and foes say, There’s no way you ain’t cheating, I choose to trust you I choose to trust you mum, Even though you left dad, And people say you’re not a good woman, But you were there for me when others left, I choose to trust you I choose to trust you friend, Even though you’ve decided to leave, ‘Cos you want more and I can only give less, But you gave me hope when I had fears, I choose to trust you I choose to trust you ‘self’, Even though you keep messing life up, And you’re confused more than ever before, But you got here and it’s far from where you used to be, I choose to trust you I choose to trust you Lord, Even though the times are hard, ‘The Promise’ looks […]

Two strangers 

Like music to a broken heart, Like food to a hungry belly, You came into my life, And smile filled my once straight face, Her name, ‘U&Me’, My name, ‘Love U&Me’, Once wondered how people fall in love, Now I ask how they fall out of it, Some friends say she’s too good for me, She has it all and you have nothing’, I smile and say, ‘Why judge a person by the clothes that they wear?’, Some say she’s too bad for me, Different religion, Different language, I frown and say, ‘Why judge a culture by the things that you hear?’, She makes me want to try out the love thing, She says love is good for me, I make her want to try out the love thing, I say ‘love is good for you’, After all is said and done, We’re just two strangers who want the same thing, […]

Will you be my kind of mother?

Will you be the kind of mother that allows her girl child come home past midnight, Dropped off by an ‘insane’ boy, who reeks of alcohol,  Likely the smallest of his vices that night?   Will you be the type that lies on behalf of your daughter to her father, Corroborating her pseudo story about the need to buy science practical materials When you know it’s just to meet her insatiable financial needs?   Will you be the kind that shy away from sex education Even though you caught your underage child in the middle of the night watching an x-rated movie, The scene you saw explainable only by the words ‘illicit sex’?   Will you turn deaf ears to the ‘nosy’ neighbors when they tell you they saw your daughter with ‘something like’ cigarette but definitely ‘smells’ like ‘something worse’. Will you tell them to mind their business and […]
