Oh My!
The very Great God of Heaven
For our sake, humbled Himself
To those of us in darkness, sent He a Preacher of the Gospel
To the brokenhearted, sent He the Healer

Just Think Of It
Emmanuel Nambware insists that I must start a musical band
But how without any land?
Maybe with him managing, it could trend
I am not sure if my writing and my singing can blend
...
3.
The Beauty Of Days
There is a colourful butterfly in the grassy plains of my mind
Nevertheless, I am not sure whether to celebrate the day I was born or not

By our kith and kin to the worlds unknown we was
By the shores of eternity, white gods awaited us
Like cattle, we were loaded into ships unfamiliar

The Beauty Of Misfortunes
Beauty hides her innocence in the shadows of ugliness
As death lurks in the abundance of life
They hear the voice of one crying from the pulpit as that of a righteous tribesman
Do they expect him to smile when many of his kinsmen lye in unmarked tombs
...
10.
Happy Birthday
