(Kenya -East Africa)


Fear is my curse
Greed is my sin
Wisdom my lover
success my sibling

If silence is golden,
and love is platinum
Then power is priceless
Thus success is my mistress

My woman was my right hand
but while I was deeply attached
I had her amputated
She was ruining my act
so I quit her like a bad habit

Let it be known
There is only one of my kind
The only one there ever will be
which is why I remain unscathed
by societal scrutiny
I dance to the beat of my drum
Thus only God can judge me

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
