This part of the world I wish you could see with me

Over the years I have lived
In all the ways I have acquired knowledge
Knowing the difference between reality and fantasy
Still, nothing fascinates me like this part of the world
That I see when I close my eyes, in my own little bud
I stare at beauty beyond belief! What a sight?
In all ways I wish you could see what I see
Let me describe… hoping that my words will paint the picture

I see the world in so many colors
Almost like a doodle that I did when I was still in kindergarten
In the eyes of the small girl I was that was beautiful
Why is everything so true when we are children?
There is no better joy to see it all coming back to me
Back to those beautiful days
The sun so beautiful, not harsh, so gentle
The water pure, so free,
The earth so green, so enchanting
The breeze so fresh
Those were the days
I would take a deep breath and never want to let it out
This is the world I wish you could see with me

I see families out playing with each other
Dad and mum playing tag with the kids
I see lovers intertwined in love
I see friends gathered out on a picnic
I see love, care, and trust
I swear these are the things that have all meaning in the world
This is that part of the world I wish you could see

The loyalty Pledge (Kenya)

I pledge my loyalty to the President
and Nation of Kenya
My readiness and duty
to defend the flag of our Republic
My life, strength and service
in the task of nation building
In the living spirit embodied
in our National motto 'Harambee'

and perpetuated in the
Nyayo philosophy
of Peace, Love and Unity.

Thinking Moi’s dictatorship!
As children we had to make the pledge!
In our rags!
With no shoes on!
Bribed with milk (maziwa ya nyayo for staying so loyal)
We recited the words out loud
Religiously we recited at the school assembly
Attention we stood when recited or else we would face the wrath of the cane!

Moments... This is what the universe has decided to fill up my life with... Moments of what I could call love - and immense moments of pain -  as if to love the way I do is  a sin Now now Namatsi, please let go - the winds whisper as if they understand me Moments...
Pain... Trust me, this is a poem has escaped its prison It has broken chains, to see the light I never promised it I think my fingers have very big gaps -  when I think am holding so tight - it gets slippery and my stupid heart never reads the signs.... Dear Soul.... please let me not hold anything back when we talk about it Pain...
Dreams... Tell me - how do you love someone who is not kind to the soul? Why this person? what did they do to make you decide to hurt me like so? I wish I was casual with love as everyone else is. I have fought nations to hold you in my arms - all you did was smile and stab my back Tell me - why did you ever come back? My dear lovely heart - Break them all - leave nothing standing Dreams...

'Be water my friend!' Luki - Luki the Monster

Take all the forms and shapes circumstances throw you in and rise above them all! Fit in bottles, sit in a glass, flow down a mountain, sip down  the soil - smile at it it and rise above as you join the clouds! Be water my friend as Bruce Lee said.
Art is the purest expression of life! It’s so vast and is always evolving!
For me it’s about being true to myself despite other people’s opinions and thoughts of how my life should be lived.  Art comes so honestly and purely, I don’t doubt its intentions. It makes me believe in my uniqueness and self-expression, and that we all should always strive to be the best version on ourselves. I mean, we only have one life to live, so we should live it to the fullest.       My art is a mix of many genres of music that have inspired me throughout my not so long existence.  With music, I feel that I can communicate more directly and precisely no matter the language as opposed to just having a conversation.  As a rapper, cyphers have given me the …
