SONG OF A WATCHMAN

image

Here am to stay,from dawn to dawn
Braving the sturbbon cold of the season
Dreading the magics of the unpredictable nights
Sorrounded by all odds of the night
Where the land,silent as the matyrs grave
But still i like this golden precious job
For it puts a plate of ugali on my table
Where i eat like a king in my own jungle
Am here to stay

All through the night,am always awake
Watching the undying beauty of nature
The beautiful stars and the charming moon
Their light heals me from the pains of the day
As i watch over my master’s ‘gold mines’
The moon watches over me
Giving me a doubted sense of security
In this dreading night,full of all odds
But a question stirs in my mind
Who is watching over my home?

Late in the sweet dreadful night
Am stolen by Mr sleep and taken to slumber land
Where a dream of fantasy runs through my mind
As i count “my wealth” which am watching over
I call my sons in this sweet royal dream
And share out my riches!
Before the dream is cut short by the masters vehicle
Vuuuuuuuum! Vuuuuuuuuuum!
What! I wake up the poor watchman again!

FADING TUNES

image

The mind is at crossroads
Tied by chains of imagination
Inside this hot blazing skull
Is a cold thick cloud of thoughts
Thoughts of the long gone days
Days of the long buried moments

Age is a limiting factor
That robs youthful moments day by day
Hiding them in the subconscious mind
Where they sit lonely and gloomy
But still stirring hard in the skull
Like the stubborn hunger in summer
Making the head to nod and dance
Dance to the tunes of of long forgotten songs

The mind is at the crossroads
Entangled in the bitter sweet childish plays
Where excessive happines would result to crying
And the cry bore happiness
So as i sit on this three legged stool
I dance to the fading childhood tunes
Of the cherished moments long missed
And age is the obstacle,that leaves me at crossroads

BEYOND THIS HORIZON

image

Nature is a great riddle
Who will get it right?
To me is a tricky puzzle
Can’t solve it alone
But just to believe what is said
So I won’t question much

Beyond this beautiful beauty
The beauty of blue sapphire skies
Is there another undying beauty?
That my eyes are hidden from seeing?
What is beyond this horizon?

Every day is a new day
Yet the horizon is ever the same
Always keeping the undying spirit
New and younger than yesterday
What magic is beyond this horizon
Which always breath life to us

Beyond this horizon
That gives life it’s new look
The horizon that smiles light to the world
Beyond it must be the new land
Which my legs yearns to step on

RISE UP

Remove yourself from the mud son
Strengthen yourself and move own
Through the mud make a way to destiny
Make your bridge,get yourself from this mess
Keep strong and move one more step
It is too early for you to lose hope

Open your eyes and see the beauty of nature
Build confidence and live to your future
Count not your failures of the past
Rise up afresh and move on like a soldier
Worry not of your today but focus on tomorrow
No one knows what tomorrow holds for us

Dry your tears and feel happy again
Be confident and get out of your fears
Quench your lifetime thirst with your tears
Allow not your heart to age and tear
Stage un ending battle with the life
Face it strong for it is a fierce fore
Fight hard just as others did before

Pull yourself from the shadows of death
Like a soldier retreat not until you liberate yourself
Make a vow of self liberation
Hustle through and get out of this darkness
Fear not the present,focus on future
Have hope for at the end of tunnel is light
