THAT ONE TIME IN  A F R I C A
unmistaken needs were met
on those dusty unpaved roads
side by side satisfaction
life is brought, charcoal and ash
we call them the warm hearts of africa
time traveling heartache is a guarantee
in a place where we run carefree
warm smiles and blue skies
days upon days, we lost the time, the free
old and young we could not deny
love was shown
the thrill of doing whats right, intoxicating
this time, every time, everyday
in this place I feel fine, sown
in Malawi our hearts grew
that one time in Africa…
I remember it well…
thank you, zikomo
for all these delicious memories

THAT ONE TIME IN  A F R I C A

unmistaken needs were met

on those dusty unpaved roads

side by side satisfaction

life is brought, charcoal and ash

we call them the warm hearts of africa

time traveling heartache is a guarantee

in a place where we run carefree

warm smiles and blue skies

days upon days, we lost the time, the free

old and young we could not deny

love was shown

the thrill of doing whats right, intoxicating

this time, every time, everyday

in this place I feel fine, sown

in Malawi our hearts grew

that one time in Africa…

I remember it well…

thank you, zikomo

for all these delicious memories

D A R K N E S S  IS NECESSARY
closed off, isolation
as loneliness creeps in
it trumps every right thing
into heart pumping dramas
spectacular messes
without the darkness
the light within couldn’t be more illuminating
running towards the light

D A R K N E S S  IS NECESSARY

closed off, isolation

as loneliness creeps in

it trumps every right thing

into heart pumping dramas

spectacular messes

without the darkness

the light within couldn’t be more illuminating

running towards the light

It’s not true that you fall in love only once in your life. But it is true that you only fall in love a certain way, with a certain absoluteness, once.”- David Gilmour

CALL UPON HER
with eyes that pierce
with a laughter that crumbles great walls
she will lead their young men and women
towards the heavens
towards the place we all once feared
there are no borders her cross cannot bury
dressed in white
we eat drink and be merry
tomorrow is not here
so, take my hand the dance has begun

with a laughter that crumbles great walls

she will lead their young men and women

towards the place we all once feared

there are no borders her cross cannot bury

tomorrow is not here

so, take my hand the dance has begun

MADE WITH   A L O H A 
unlike the ordinary embrace
this lei I give is filled with gratitude
monoi infused air and sprinkled with aloha
breathing in a new life
Consider yourself lucky to receive one
never deny the strength these flowers hold
a future a life within these which hang round our necks

THEY CLIMB  W A L L S 
dear miracle of mine
tears of joy wash across my face tonight
as he sets off into a universe where I cant be
on my knees praying for his safety  
to the one above help me see the way
before the dust rises up
I want to make sure he will do allright
make his dreams come true
never be someones fool
what more can a mother do
hopefully taught you enough to stay true
I was nothing, I am nothing without you
blessed to be called your mom
baby boy
seek our father no matter what is ahead
wisdom comes to us both day and night
you are loved
until there are no more days and nights
until forever is mine
your little old mom
loves you more than you’ll ever know
congratulations, the world is small
Ive handed it over chandalah
