A Friend Of Hers

Poem By Kenneth Maswabi

Someone who closes the door to her heart
When storms are overpowering her
Shutting all windows
Inside her fragile spirit
Erasing her fears
In an instant
Re-writing her story
With the colours of the rainbow
Painting her heart with love
A friend of hers
Chooses to stay
When others are gone
Chooses to laugh
At her silly jokes
Chooses to ignore
Her imperfections
And enjoys her company

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
