A Brief Statement About Love

Poem By Kenneth Maswabi

Love is an activity
Just like a hobby
It requires commitment
Just like a breath
It is effortless
Just like running
It is tiring
Just like cycling
It is repetitive
Just like teaching
It is requires attention
Just like coaching
It is results oriented
Just like eating
It is delicious
Just like boxing
It is painful
Just like praying
It is faith based
Just like sleeping
It contains dreams
Just like sky diving
It is risky
Just like gardening
It requires patience
Just like studying
It requires concentration
Just like long distance running
It requires discipline
Just like flying
It goes against all human beliefs
…to be continued

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
