UPSIDE DOWN!!!

When life billows, when am tempest tossed
I want you to be the one to catch my tears
right at the chin where they join just before they drop; with might
Is that alright?
When I am discouraged when I think that all is lost
I want to come to where you are, so I may just see you
Not that you know what to do... but seeing you confused thinking of how to help
Gives me the strength I seek
Will you be my king?

For I am done with the young girls foolishness
I surrender all those things that chained me to that box
Going against the odds, am about to walk on water
Taking what life is giving me with no regrets
As I spin this wheel of changing fortunes of time
Who would predict years to come that men would idolize themselves
No longer Apollo but in with Jay - hova,
Who would know that they would not drink wine but blood and not preach water but shame
Let the wind whisper mocks them
I know that He is jealous... but this feeling He made
There is no harm
Can I be your die hard Queen?

When I am burdened with a load of care
Be my Atlas
Spartan lets show them that 300 men rose against 30,000 Persians
Or take me to the times God wrote on tablets and Moses split the ocean into two
Stop me when I sound blasphemous
Its never that serious is it?
What am I trying to say in this poem?
Boy do you believe in miracles?
Can I be it?
She who you met in a club... dancing to some dirty song
Can I be she?
She you put next to your mum?

Of all the things I have seen and places I have been
Of all the doubts I could have, I feel that this is a sure thing
The only thing that causes me to shake... is when Mr. Deejay you do your thing
And all I sing is Yvonne chakachaka... Thank you, thank you for playing my song
So yes you know you got my attention
Can I get fall into your arms so maybe you can spin my skin like you do the decks
I promise am a hardisk with only nice songs
As we rock and calculate our Beats Per Minute
when I falter, guide me and be my hero
Will you be my King?

So amid the conflict, whether great or small
When I call can I be guaranteed an answer
When enemies come to devour
Is it possible to hold a grenade...
Pull the pin then throw it at them
Is it possible to hold on to me through thick and thin
Because sometimes I can be a bitch I have been told
A drama queen, I drink, and sometimes smoke
If you want me to stop; all you have to do is be with me
And stay with me
And I could dance for you... right down to the floor am great at that
cook for you... say it i will even google it
or better write a poem or two with you and for you
Can I be your die hard Queen?

Will you be my King? so I can count you as one my blessings
Can I be your Queen? you successfully turned my world upside down
Or better will you MARRY ME?

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!

'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 …

There shall be showers of blessings!

There shall be showers of blessings... Showers of blessings from hearts that we meet There will be moments we will be mad at each other But the memories we create will surpass all the storms we have faced....
To our dearest, Charles Lwande Every thought of you is warm like the beautiful sun at noon We marched in to sing our hearts out, We marched in to Piss off the neighbors, win the drink - with a shout With the eating, and the folly, and thefun--
And the lying, and the lusting, and the drink, of the gods
and the dance that we drop to- when we'redone, to the thoughts that burn us like irons And bars we killed like lions We were bonded; as if the same blood ran through our veins We were bonded And I tell you, that you blazed fire
With your guitar, young man... when you stepped on the stage,  when you opened your mouth It was all showers of blessings
every stolen feeling of diamonds, platinum and gold Every chord, every word, every note
poured out of your mouth in passion and song fine boy no pimples… you…
