A Gift

Poem By Kenneth Maswabi

It is not common to be given a gift
It is not uncommon to accept a gift with the greatest joy
It is totally normal to hope for a gift
It is in our nature to be pleased by a kind gesture
It is our nature to be given gifts
Love is the ultimate gift
Open your heart and give it freely
Be in Love with who you are
And be in Love with what you are capable of
Be in Love with the Spirit in you
Be in Love with the Love you in you
Be in Love with the gift of Love
"For God so loved the world
That He gave His one and only Son,
That everyone who believes in Him
Shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3: 16
It is this gift of Love that illuminates the path of eternal life
And brings joy and happiness to our lives
"Love is patient,
Love is kind
It does not envy
It does not boast
It is not proud." 1 Corinthians 13: 4
"But now faith, hope, love,
Abide these three;
But the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13: 13
It is an everlasting gift
It is your gift to the world

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
