STONE COLD



Forgive and forget I heard the preacher once but I won’t forgive I can’t forget 

but that issue is dead for sure. 

Please don’t say acceptance is the key to be truly free well guess what, acceptance is the reason I ain’t really free.


 I’m not here to throw stones 

cause apparently we all have sined. 

Once bitten twice shy, I know when you lie. 

Its too late for condolences when it’s over with. 

If you knew the knife did hurt then why stab it in?

COME BACK.

Bit by bit you became a memory,
your beauty was a bullet you blew my mind away.

Holding on to everything that’s left cause you got away.

Dont sleep on me we have words unsaid,
promises not kept,
dreams left for dead.

A little of you lingers on in my head,
I don’t want you gone that’s a given
and I’m running out of words that’s certain.
So hit me up when you’re less busy,
its been long since we walked down the streets.

Peace.

 

 

I know I’ve been gone for a while without any explanation, I’m so sorry. Im back now, hoping to give you better write ups. Just keeping liking and dropping those comments.  Thank you. IMG_20170621_154248

APRIL

image

I didn’t mean for it to happen,
I didn’t mean for me to feel this way.
All I wanted was to talk,
All you wanted was for someone to listen.

You’re going through a phase,
While I just want to see your face.
You’re a little bit broken,
But in my arms you feel safe.

Your hearts with someone else,
But secretly I wish it were mine.
Your smile so heavenly,
But deep inside you want to cry.

I long for the day when you’re finally at peace,
And I hope such a day might be with me.
we can be together in the month of April
Where we could kiss under the rain.

…………….Hey! How you doing? and how did your day go? Don’t forget to drop a comment if you liked it. ✌✌#monkeylove this one’s dedicated to you 🐒

BLACK VELVET

BLACK VELVET
She walks with her head on high,
Her lip doesn’t know how to smile.
Her steps quick, she walks alone,
But she’s not alone, she is slave to her imaginations.

Surrounded by many but known by few.
Shy to approach the world,
She’s a slave to her nature,
But that no one knows is true.

Her heart is filled with love,
But her love can’t be expressed with her voice.
When she smiles, the most beautiful art piece of all time,
But she hates to be told so.

Her dark hair shines in the sun light,
Her beautiful eyes glow in the dark.
She is black, she is introverted
like the velvet cake she’s sweet.
She is the introverted black velvet.

Sorry I’ve been gone for a while now, I’ve just been occupied and writers block. So I’m here now hope you enjoy.

RECOVERY

Another bombing on the news today, this has been going on for a while now. Since power changed hands my people have known no peace and its four years now, sometimes I wonder where it all went wrong but I just can’t pin point where. Well I cannot stress about this, all I can do is pray for a better future for me two kids to live in. we moved from the north of our country to settle in the southern district where everything seems safer at least that’s what I thought.

It’s getting late but I’m outside my home as I listen to the crickets of the night and watch the stars in the sky as the evening breeze makes me feel cool, nature is at peace with itself but my country isn’t. well I guess there is nothing you can do when you don’t have power.

“honey, wouldn’t you join me in bed?” my wife asked with worries written all over her face. I didn’t even know when she came out of the house, I guess I was that deep in thought.

“I’m sorry love, let’s go inside you must be getting cold” getting her into my embrace we walked to the house together. If only this nation could be like my family, if only this nation can be in peace.

Its Saturday morning and as usual I’m sleeping in, due to my work activities Saturday is my day, nothing ever comes between us. Getting up from bed I saw a note beside me saying:

The kids and I went out to have some fun, I left some food for you and the freezer and if you care to join us we are the usual spot. Take care

With a slight giggle and a smile on my cheek I went to the bathroom to have my bath. Its thirty minutes now since I started watching my recorded tv programme for the week and I so need to catch up on Game of thrones then it happened. They took the light, as much as I was annoyed and disgusted that at this present time we suffered power outage in this country I’m not surprised.
Well I guess everything happens for a reason, so I jumped in my car and raced like a jet to the park where my wife takes the kids on weekends. On my way I decided to stop buy our favourite restaurant to get something we could all eat instead of stopping by on our way back.

“Excuse me sir do you want anything new or the regular?” the lady at the counter who was always on duty on Saturday asked.

“I’ll take the regular thank you and you can keep the change” I responded with a smile as I gave her the cash for payment.

The lady at the counter had gotten my order and was about giving it to me when the suddenly she was stopped and frozen letting every item she held fall to the ground. “What’s the matter?” I asked almost revealing how angry I was at the fact I had to wait for her to get another meal for me. She didn’t seem bothered at all as she kept pointing to the television and horridly looking for the remote.

I turned back to see what got her all puzzled, it was then I realised it was another bomb blast and this time it’s in our region but I’m not so bothered about that until I saw the location….
“its olotas park, my wife! my kids!! Oh no oh no” I shouted with tears already forming in my eyes.

“God please let them be alright” I prayed as I drove as fast as I could to the park. Disobeying every traffic rule on my way to the park, I finally arrived. “Ife!!! Jeremiah !!! Jasmin!!!!” I shouted the names of every of my family members at that park that day but no response.

Then I saw my wife being pulled away in a stretcher, hurriedly I ran to her.
“Ife are you okay? Where are the kids? What happened?” I baptised her with numerous questions.

The paramedics tried to send me away but then she grabbed my hand and struggled to say
“I tried to save them love but it was too late, it happened suddenly, I’m sorry” she said with tears flowing down her cheeks

“it’s okay, it’s all good, just hold on for me” I said with a quaking voice and a shaking body I was sweating without control.

“please don’t let this hold you back, move on and be happy”
“Ife don’t do this. Ife you’re staying with me”

“just remember I lo……………” she didn’t complete her words and her eyes were shut .

“No it can’t be, you can’t just leave me like this, it’s not fair” I said with tears running down my face. I am all alone in this world the only thing that keeps me sane is gone. How dare she tell me to move on I can’t do this.

MOTIVATION

Well it’s Monday again (yay) and this is another motivation for your week.

image

Because you would always get tired and you can’t do nothing about that.

image

Because the only limit you’ll ever have in achieving your goals is you.

image

No matter where you find yourself always see yourself as the leader even if it doesn’t seem so now.

image

Never forget this ” yes you can” if you can conceive it, you can achieve it.

Hope you’re motivated? And if you feel like sharing any story of motivation for next Monday hit me up.

THE LIGHT

image

The room is dark,
I can’t find my way round it,
I can’t lay my hand on the touch,
I hear voices all around me,
Sometimes I feel it’s all in my head,
But other times I know I’m not alone.

image

The struggle to get to the light,
The struggle to be free from my self,
I’m enveloped by the rage in my heart.
The rage which is fueled by bitterness.

image

I’m bitter because my nation’s still backward,
I’m bitter because my people are racist to their very own self,
I’m bitter because somewhere there is a kid who has just been made an orphan.

image

I search for the light to set us free.
Free from the darkness which we are in,
Free from our own self.
I hear voices and I know I’m not alone.
One day we would get to the light,
One day we would be free,
But where is the light?
