(Kiswahili Poem. Translation below it)

Roho yangu yanyauka kama jangwa
Baridi limezidi siwezi vumilia
Wajua vile usiku umekuwa mrefu
Ndoto ni sumbufu mno
Roho yauma, mwili umenyauka
Tangu uniache bila sababu
Nilidhani wewe ni wangu bila shaka
Jamani rudi nyumbani

PUT ON THAT DRESS I LIKE

You know, the red one
The one that hugs you so right
I could be jealous

Miss a beat because its you
Rythm becomes more organised
Because you have on that dress

I have yearned your body heat
Thirsted for your intoxicating words

Imagined your toes tickling my own

Hello sweet perfume of my needy chest

Life i listened to with both ears
I even laughed trying to edge out pain
This sofa seeming to be my only reality
I have sunk deeper into depression
Curled around my naked chest

MY LITTLE POISON BERRY

A torn down world will revive
Breaths caught under the sun
Wasting a rainfall
Mists begin their revenge
Music, where’s that music
Moments are fleeting
Like dust in the wind
They disappear
Yet they make part of what we are
