Treasure Island

Ole Makau Samuel

(04 May 1993 / Nairobi)

In The Numbers


There are thousands of ways to gain
Innumerable amounts of faces
Most have faded into energy
But were once awake
Moving creatures
Known to be the species to ask 'why'
There are innumerable ways to die
And as we look into the nighttime sky
There are infinity blazing stars that didn't
have to try
But just came into existance
