The day is new and so are you

anything that’s been done, you can do it too

don’t let the haunted past get you on a lonely path

just hang on for your breakthrough

i know you feel alone, you feel you’re to blame

and the voices in your head sometimes they make you wanna go insane

but if you, take a second breath and remember every lonely step could be your last one

so baby don’t complain.


Now lets throw the darts to the bull’s eye

even if we don’t make it, please don’t cry

cos i would trade it all, just to see you smile.

And don’t forget about all the songs you write

playing your guitar every night

cos it just might happen for you

you might get your breakthrough.


gods of football!

They scored four , could have scored more

and it seemed we would be kicked right through the exit door

but the Gods of football , we’re with us this night

and somehow  all of our wrongs just turned into rights

we still can’t explain

how we turned around the train

from the humiliation and pain

to our fans going insane

and Neymar was filled

with fire as he roamed the field

Messi was at his best

and you know Suarez wouldn’t rest

and our team was strong

and we believed we could all along

turn the tide of the match

for we are a fortunate batch

of winners ,who never give up even till the final call

that is why we were so favored by the gods of football.


is reality a simulation?

do we get scared to think outside the box

to break our mental locks

even if we are mocked

or get a glimpse and we are shocked

our paradigms being shifted

and the veil being lifted

isn’t that why ,with minds we have been gifted.

challenge the status quo

because you never really know

how far the rabbit hole goes

and if the world is just a stage to pose

a simulation constructed

from the minds of aliens disrupted

or ancient astronauts in voyage

and man,their seeds grown in storage

what’s the reason for the stars

how i wonder what they are?

are they the eyes that see our soul

that keep earth from spinning out of control

what is awareness and the unconscious

is religion truth or human nonsense?

a pill to numb the pain

is the soul really a function of the brain?

they say now is the only reality

and in the mind there is no gravity

well i guess one day we’ll find

when we have an encounter with another kind.





The moment i arrive

i will not be deprived

i will strive and still will thrive

because i truly live to be alive

built a nation from the ground

up to touch the skies and crown

even when others fall down

i still do not back down

seen it all ,more is to come

after the dawn, i am the one

underneath the sun

and they wonder how i weave

the matrix and it’s all from my power to believe.

Push through

Sometimes it seems we hit a wall

and all our dreams scatter and fall

and now we feel small where once we felt tall

yet if you push through ,you can make it out of it all

cos really it’s all in your mind

even if there’s reasons you try to find

to why in all the season’s  you grind and grind

and still success has been elusive and  unkind

give it another day, week or year

wipe out your tears , shake off your fears

and push through till you make it out of there

cos no one’s perfect ,everyone feels pain

the secret is to let the rain wash away the shame

just let go of the hills of guilt that your self doubt has built

rediscover your skills , and keep going until

your back again to where it feels like you remember you

and you’re at this point because you determined to push through.

Play it cool

don’t be a fool

even if you love her, gotta play it cool

number one rule

don’t turn into a tool

lemme take you to school

first class is “play it cool”

you wanna rush

cos you feel so much

and you miss her touch

but don’t let her be a crutch

break free

and then you will see

that if it’s meant to be

then your path’s will both agree

until then , don’t break the rule

don’t make it look like your a fool

or turn yourself into a tool

playboy,play it cool….

Prove them wrong

They want you on your feet

slumped and crushed in defeat

needing their help to succeed

from their hands,to always feed

and you have two choices in the game

change your heart or just complain

change your mind , and transcend pain

find solutions and forget blame.

They think they know your story

and they try to tarnish your glory

sometimes thinking they are right

but wait!this is your life!

this is your movie, your fight

it’s you who knows what’s inside

cos from the truth , you cannot hide

so face it ,with head held high

i promise you your piece of the pie

is a rainbow docked in the sky

so prove’em wrong-cos it’s time to fly….

Teach me to swim in the moonlight

in the moonlight, black boys look blue

i never understood why my skin made me different from you

because on the inside,it’s blind,like the love that sinks it’s teeth

to the yearning of my heart beat and the crickets dancing at my feet

and all this silence ,was my glory to keep

in watching you breathe,as you struggled to sleep

and you knew the moon was crescent at it’s peak

and swimming in deep waters,still i heard you speak

now,i run, sometimes still but in my mind always moving

and i yearn to be better, always learning and improving

cos the moonlight changes faces,and sometimes so do i

sometimes with the gaze of a lion, you would never know i cry.



Does mum really love me?

she’s breaking me down

she see’s my smile but hopes i frown

she tell’s them lies to hurt my name

and i wonder, wasn’t it from your womb i came?

she never rests in causing me stress

she never see’s me at my best

does she love me? you can take a guess

her answer is ,”i fed you my breasts”….

well sometimes she’s kind when she knows she’s been cruel

but still sometimes she thinks me a fool

and overwhelms me with her quirks and her rules

and makes me feel nothing more than her tool…

i long to break free

to one day see

just how it would be to raise my own family

and i promise never to treat my kids the same

but i won’t hate you,mom,it’s  not you i blame

you’re hurt and you don’t know what else to do

but to hurt everyone else ,so they can hurt like you

just a girl inside, still broken from pain

still i promise,to not take to heart ever again

the words that you’ve said

and all the times i wished you dead

and your voice of failure ,ringing in my head

but sometimes she’s lovely, when she wants to be,oh well!

will she ever change..?i guess only time will tell..

Voices of the heart

why is my heart longing

for a belonging

a song i could have written

before i was by darkness, bitten

now bruised,and waiting to heal

and the wound that has eaten my zeal

yet i search for love and the wanting

that can chase away my ghosts and haunting.

so drown me in your love and needing

and still this aching heart that’s bleeding

and love me,even if just a little

till my bones grow strong from worn and brittle

and take my shadow in your care

and clean my tears off with your hair

for a lover lays in side me

just in fate and for faith,that love shall find me.
