ROUGH ROAD, CLEAN SHOES

Comfort within me, life has been good to me

I possess all I desire, I admire all I possess

Once in the bliss of my domain, I saunter upon the silk realm

Look, my shoes are clean

Spanking with a glimmer that sparks

This is for real and not my dreams

Long ago in the past I dreamt of this a thousand times

When I use to walk the streets of dust

Trekking up and down the lanes

Look, the road is rough

My shoes busted and without any relief in sight

Never giving up on hope and the things I adore

Now that I have found the my delight

I can proudly say rough road lead to clean shoes…

 


 

SE` KE RE`

Gift of gods, made by man
Eloquent mould, clad in beads.

Pedestal with rhythms
Agog in music.

Audible not audacious
Centrist yet ceramic
Being furtive denies not your fusion.

Made for duet
Take to duel
Gracious oldies of youth
Influential indemnify icon.

Beat the sole of souls
Awake the spirit of sleep
Hold your breath and yet breathe
Mothers, maidens, the lords and peasants alike.
Dance your beat.

And in unison your voice remains aloof
You joy of Africa.
