Kenneth Maswabi Poems

dear beloved
time flies unheeded
our days apart stretched
our love tormented

Fear is a battalion of mercenary chemicals
Capable of incapacitating even the most hardened of individuals
In the absence of faith, hope, Love and sometimes courage
Fear is stealthily deployed to incinerate the mind, body and spirit

On this path
I strive to be a Poet
Not because I am an artist
But because I am a Seeker

Born out of joy
Jovial moments are captured
By the wavering laughter
Bursting out of a happy heart

Her soul stitched to her garment with a paintbrush
Arousing her heart to dream
Ready to shout with joy
Celebrating the life full of butterflies


the bold eagle
flying far above your head
in times of peace
masquerading as a dove

The stepping-stone of the gods
Standing high above the clouds
With the snow white veil
And a magnificently erect pose

I have listened to man preach
Swallowing the sacred nectar
And vomiting it in rejection
It is the dejection of the spirit

Deep inside the river of consciousness
Beautiful pearls are being created
Beyond the imagination of men (and women)
Life is being re-configured and refined

It's been a while
Since I took my medicine
My heart is thumping
My head is spinning


The shadows are for spies
Their ghostly entrance unknown
Arousing no suspicion
With their kindly gestures

I am mesmerized by the substance of life
It's not the cellular biology that I have fallen for
The cytoplasm and the intracellular spaces
The golgi bodies and the nucleus

In His glory
God is full of unconditional Love
In His unconditional Love
God is full of mercy

Today I want to step into your sorrow
Walk over your tears
Find your soul
Hold your heart

The jagged edge of the knife
Pierced the puffed face of resilience
Now, humanity is at his wits' end
Unable to wake up from this nightmare

The inner and outer realms of life
Remain separated by a veil of unawareness
It's not the thickness of the veil
That hides the truth

Eternity has no beginning and end
Wisdom cannot be measured by mathematical formula
The truth stand unequaled in the scale of history
Love is a masterpiece awash with mysterious spells

I am travelling inward
Between the Milky Way and the Soul
Into the dimensionless world of consciousness
Into the seclusion of my heart

Created with the purest of Love
The Soul looks at humanity with bleeding eyes
Suffering multiple stab wounds at the hands of politicians,
Capitalists, and religious fundamentalists

Step into the world of consciousness
And learn to be free
To walk naked inside your imagination
Exploring the secrets of the universe

Kenneth Maswabi Biography

I am in a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. My pen is my walking stick and my studio is my inner silence (heart) . Ever since I can remember I have always been a quiet and humble human being. In this quietness, I became aware of the silence within and in this silence i became aware of my emptiness. In my emptiness, I was liberated from ego, I am now fully in Love. I am a Lover. My life is a mystery and I don't know my destination. In this mystery, life is unfolded in pages and pages of poetry.)

The Best Poem Of Kenneth Maswabi

Long Distance Love

dear beloved
time flies unheeded
our days apart stretched
our love tormented
punctured by the passing time
temptations in our hearts
threatening our accord
intoxicating our minds
with wild thoughts
brainwashing our hearts
with forbidden desires
the source of wickedness

dear beloved
the boat of our love
is ever rocked by the feisty winds
hostile waves bashing us nonstop
bruising our hearts
with their powerful emotions
breaking our love
with their convincing force
severing our bond
with their sharp edge
condemning our love
with their lightening touch

dear beloved
hold onto our love
do not allow time to trick you
stay away from those temptations
abstain your mind from those wild thoughts
never open the lid of the pot of the forbidden desires
pray hard for the feisty winds to pass
and the storm to die
for the boat of our love is strong.

I am a fan of Kenneth's writing. He is a wonderful poet who covers a range of human emotions as well as social issues through powerful natural metaphors and similes. His writing is very different from my own and I appreciate those differences and am often surprised by his writing and made to think. He also writes with fierce passion and commitment. Thanks for your contributions.

The poet is constantly making an attempt for restoration of peace every where in the world through his amazingly simple yet emphatic poetry. His commitment is laudable and should be emulated by others in all parts of the world. I wish him a strong fan following and success.
