Senseless

____ is getting ready for school in the morning. It is as any other ordinary day, he’s battling against the clock and his mother stressing as he is running late. His breakfast is waiting for him downstairs. His mother shouts to him to come down, he yells back he can’t find his socks. She goes…

He seeks refuge (Short Story)

He held a nationality to once be proud of, yet now he had to cower from neighbours that turned to strangers. He didn’t know, if he could bare to bear witness to another bullet that ransacked shacks of the guiltless. To feel a blunt knife poke at his heart like the sharp one that took…

Belief (Poem)

With our impulses pulsating, Holding the pulse of Satans hand with an arm on the harmonica of an angels harmony, in the harms and virtues we see and do not see in us, both the lowest of the low and highest of the high. Breathing heavily, like thieves of jeopardy flicked on and off between…

An honourable surrender (Poem)

Attack is the best form of defence, as we are but hordes in a warzone so no use sitting on the fence in this dog eat dog world   Robbers can steal your humanity Murderers may kill your soul Liars can lie in the way of the truths Loan sharks may never leave you alone…

Practice what you preach (Poem)

It seems for many of us we are enslaved to engaging in debates reflecting on our helpless case as we negate and abrogate.   Though most the time its hard to say whose are who’s views, glued to news frames that are framed around tricks, and fabricate to induce manic, and panicked states   Yet rather…

When the dust settles (Poem)

Is it to be, that only then… our vision would reach peak acuity? Only when the dust settles in nettles over floods of blood and meshes of flesh?   Our foresight is a sight for sore eyes, Cloudy sand-covered mists summarise politics tricks as we jump on every opportunity to jump at each others throats.  …

Never in our name again (Poem)

Lengthy coma, wake to find a stolen identity, Within a name tarnished, was a branding as an enemy, The implausibility, in times where anything is feasible, Turned truth into a weakened tool, farfetched and unreasonable, A message at the heart of religion, never harm children and women, Now under the mask of its name, becomes…

My-oh-genic (Poem)

Once solitude in this treasure chest Yet from all directions now – scathed and torn Be it sleeve or breast, for you to rest.. I contest, where best you are worn. Is it in the fields of ethnicity and predecessors? Or do the lands of your birth hold the throne? Volcanic eruptions burn victim and…

The forsaken family (Poem)

Insubstantial my state, in this desolate land, I come to you, O strangers; my hope at your hands, Has anybody seen where reside my siblings? We were of one, now all have gone missing. Our family was large; our hearts’ were united, We grew to depart, and so too frictions ignited, I seek for my…

He smiled and wished them peace (Poem)

Littered with waste and excrements Routine for days as he walked passed Responding only with merciful sentiments as they sneered at him and laughed All he heralded, declared as lunacy to no avail people cruelly would mock him For he spoke to them of unity Discomforting wealthier pockets They slandered him and broke treaties Yet…
