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

AS IT WAS, AS IT WILL

Toiling from dawn to dusk
Cutting the grass,turning the soil
Till our feet are full of dust
Makes our pot to boil
As it was,as it will
Life is a hustle without rehersal

Early in the chilly morning
Up on the task,blankets thrown away
Throughout the busy day yawning
Struggling to make the day
As it was,as it will
Life is all a struggle untill the last breath

Braving the morning cold
Daring the evening darkness
We always stand out bold
Since when young till you grow old
Struggling to fill this endless pit-stomac
As it was,as it will
Hustle stops when you die

CHOOSE ME OR LOSE

Just like the water lillies
Growing by the river banks
Like the rose braving the thorns
Make me feel my worth
For i am a pracious stone
I dont deserve that treatment
So choose me or lose me
You have the choices with you

Am that glittering gemstone
That can illuminate and bring light in darkness
A blossoming flower that deserve greator tenderness
Make my worth be felt once more
Revive my reputation and remould me
Choose me or lose me
You have the choices with you

The morning glitters i always woke up to
Is now the bitter portion i live with
Burry your ego and save me from trouble
Let me feel the worth i have always preserved
Choose me or lose me
You have the choices with you

Stop robbing my morning peace
Let me be at peace and breath with ease
This is the last time i make such a wish
And so i give you options to choose
Choose me or lose me
I won’t regret the choice you make

WAITING FOR TOMORROW

Today wasn’t my day
That is all I can say
All my hustle went wasted
Back I came with nothing to lay on my hand
But I don’t care as long as I still breath
Am waiting for tomorrow
To grab what I missed today

Todat can’t be like yesterday
Neither will tomorrow be like today
What I have missed today
I believe I grabbed it yesterday
If not, I will be on it tomorrow
As I sleep with the rattling stomach today
I don’t care as long as I still breath
I am waiting for tomorrow
To grab what I missed today

Life is a perfect circle
Sealed at the end and at beginning
If it gives you passions
Expect bitter lemons the following day
So as I go home empty handed
I can’t complain and feel sad
I don’t care as long as I breath
Am waiting for tomorrow
To unwrap my fortune

BEYOND RED ROSES

The inner feeling in me is beyond red roses
Stirred by immagination,driven by unseen forces
Roses are beautiful,growing by the river banks
Sun is their enemy that makes them to wither
So the feeling in me prevails in all weather
It is beyond red roses that only blossoms in the cold
And wither in the midday sun when needed the most

Deep down in me is a cold burning sensation
That keeps me in motion like the earth’s rotation
The feeling is beyond the scented red roses
It is an illusion that i cant stop feeling its ignition
A sense that rekindles the splint long put off
This must be beyond the fragrant ed roses
For roses wither and fall off as useless rejects

As i stand on this plain of affection
Am set to go,to bring you something special
Something light,but heavy make your heart settle
So please it wont be a rose or something close to it
Roses are beautiful wen young
But an eyesore as they grow old and beauty fades
So i bring you a vibrating unseen force
Receive it and let your heart dance to its tune
May special gift this time will be beyond red roses
For roses will wither and be thrown away
Take this living gift daughter of Ramogi
A gift of true love and affection
That is far beyond red roses

DANCE TO THE MOON

Stand out in the night
And close your eyes tight
Feel the showers of the moonlight
Look up with with the closed eyes
Maintain the look, keep the guess
In the shining moonlight
Is the laughter to your eyesight

Like the stars,dare the moon
Brave the midnight cold
Let your skin glow bright
Look at the stars
Count your blessings
Under the moon lies your joy
The maiden of ages, to heal your sores

Smile at the moon,h
Jeer the sleeping sun
Face the moon until you feel it’s burn
In its rays is the romantic sensation
To quench your thirst of the great longings
Close your eyes, whisper to the moon
In its light lies your fortune

Laugh at the sun,one that brings pain
Of the whole day burn, as we toil to earn
Smile at the moon, clear off that frawn
In its romantic light all is fine
Face the moon with the closed eyes
Feel its cold burning sensation
And sleep tight after the whole day of toil
In the moon we heal from the sun’s pains
