100% Genuine

Poem By Kenneth Maswabi

I am 100% genuine
authenticated by God
and validated by doctors
with their DNA tests
they certified me
an original masterpiece

I am 100% genuine
celebrated by my mother
and respected by my father
I stand saluted by my peers
with their magnificent hearts
they applauded my being

I am 100% genuine
you can gauge me in dollars
and may be in carats
putting me on the same hand
as gold and diamonds
you can wear me in your hearts
and stand proud of the shine in your smile

I am 100% genuine
fantasy and dreams
I am not
shadows and mirage
I am not
originality and perfection
I give to you.

Long Distance Love

dear beloved
time flies unheeded
our days apart stretched
our love tormented

Fear Is A Brutal Foe

Fear is a battalion of mercenary chemicals
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


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


the bold eagle
flying far above your head
in times of peace
masquerading as a dove

A New Humanity

Deep inside the river of consciousness
Beautiful pearls are being created
Beyond the imagination of men (and women)
Life is being re-configured and refined

True Love

It is not the heart
That waits for your Love
It is the whole of eternity
Always ready to welcome you
