A Fragile Mindset

Poem By Kenneth Maswabi

The youth of today
With their know-all attitude
Expensive gadgets
And an envelope of worthless certificates
Stand accused of a fragile mindset

Holding their morals in their hands
Folding their hard earned education
Hiding their lack of wisdom
They venture into the dark alleys of life
Attracted by the low hanging honeycombs
Sex, drugs and rock’n roll
Fill their tummies with excitement
Bloating their egos
Blinding their view
Exposing their fragile mindset
To the forces of darkness
Crime & terrorism

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
