I am in a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. My pen is my walking stick and my studio is my inner silence (heart) . Ever since I can remember I have always been a quiet and humble human being. In this quietness, I became aware of the silence within and in this silence i became aware of my emptiness. In my emptiness, I was liberated from ego, I am now fully in Love. I am a Lover. My life is a mystery and I don’t know my destination. In this mystery, life is unfolded in pages and pages of poetry.


Kenneth Maswabi Poems

Long Distance Love

dear beloved
time flies unheeded

Fear Is A Brutal Foe

Capable of incapacitating even the most hardened of individuals
In the absence of faith, hope, Love and sometimes courage
Fear is stealthily deployed to incinerate the mind, body and spirit... more »


Born out of joy
Jovial moments are captured
By the wavering laughter
Bursting out of a happy heart... more »

Kenneth Maswabi Quotes

The dreams in a shadow are a reflection of the illusion that is life
Nothing in life is what it appears to be
the light hides shadows of ghosts from our eyes and darkness hides ghosts from our eyes.
there is bad lurking in both goodness and badness.
the shadow of silence is emptiness
It is important to keep silent at times but don't embrace the emptiness that follows long spells of silence

I have just read Kenneth's (Dr Ken's) " Spiritual Path" A much needed read for the world. With the Covid 19 and A blind president who has caused 4 years of terror. The world has now woken to so much. Thank You Kenneth for I have read your work over the years and your words are trying desperately to " Peace " (piece) us all as one. There is hope!
