Chaos

Explosive, 

Erosive, 

Extrusive, 

Corrosive. 

 

Cold, 

Still, 

Dark, 

Free. 

 

Burning, 

Churning, 

Lifting, 

Binding. 

 

Forming, 

Growing ,

Being,

Being,

BEING.

 

Nature forced me to see,

That there is beauty in the madness.

Team

Umoja ni nguvu, that is what we say on this side of the Sahara. Unity is power.

The amalgamation of efforts towards a common goal is what makes beautiful creations in our day and age. Stepping away from the ‘me’, into the ‘we’. Teamwork! Somebody scream teamwork!

When you and I bring what we have in the bottom of our pockets, and share with each other, then both of us walk away with a taste of what the other person is.

Teams. I believe in the power that they hold, the sweetness of the exchange of energy, the arguments, the ideas, the solutions, the solutions…the solutions.

Umoja. Ni. Nguvu.

Song; Gods Plan-Drake

Twirl

We’ve come around,

Full circle,

Through the struggle,

You pulled me down,

I kicked you back.

 

Did you love the pain,

Inflicted?

The gain?

In your heart?

Did it fan your hearth?

Does it burn?

Oh tell me,

Does it burn?

 

You and I,

We go round and round,

Like a child with a lasso,

Up and down,

Round and round,

Until you capture,

My soul.

 

I’ll stand here,

Waiting,

for a second round,

Lets go dancing,

Round and round,

Maybe,

This time,

My feet won’t hurt.

Song: Cold Little Heart by Michael Kiwanuka

Equal

You and I,

We,

Are,

All,

Equal.

From the nose that breathes,

To the brain that thinks,

We are all equal.

Well…it’s one of those days when I’ve been taken back to thoughts I had as a young girl. My best friend happened to be from a different part of the world, a different religion. And , I could not allow myself to believe that she- the most amazing person I had met, would not be with me on the other side, but, would be damned to eternal suffering.

We,

take different routes,

to the same destination,

Searching,

For home.

Our bodies are made up of 70% water. That’s the one thing that always facinates me. Regardless of what we think we are…There’s a lot of water in us. No matter where we live, there’s a hell of water in us.

You and I,

We,

Are,

All,

Equal.

From the nose that breathes,

To the brain that thinks,

We are all equal.

Breathe in, 

Breathe out,

There’s life, 

Running inside those veins. 


Breathe in,

Breathe out,

There’s life, 

Pulsating again and again.


Breathe in, 

Breathe out,

There’s life, 

In the expansion of the lungs. 


Breathe in, 

Breathe out,

There’s life.

So tell me,

Beautiful child,

what is there to lose,

under this beautiful starry sky,

where you can almost reach out and touch,

the glitter splayed against the dark canvas?
