Simon Odhiambo Biography

A Father, husband, a professional, a poet.
Passionate about life and strongly obsessive about poetry.
Poetry makes me say what I feel, how I feel it and when I feel like.
But who am I?

I smile, I read, I write, I walk, I see, I breath, I think, I thank, I pray, I believe, I manage, I advise, I love, I like, I give and sometimes...I cry

...I SMILE AGAIN...

One channel at a time, Is what you can watch

Pen Killer

Great writers, great poets
Of time now and those gone by
Hear me out, as I wail the pen
The burial, I will not attend

What time is it?
Is a simple question to answer
A watch, a calendar or may be a clock
May help with the response

This Tear Is For You - Mama

Men should not cry, you told me mama
And I will not, but will shed just a tear
Just to feel how you felt, when your tears flowed
Your cheeks were always wet, I recall dear mother
