A Global Fever

Poem By Kenneth Maswabi

Fear was never meant to be a disease
No antibiotic can address this illness
No psychotherapist is ready to undress this monster
Fear is a protruding force in today's global village
Overwhelming the technology of the day
Fear is stampeding across the global village
Overtaking the world of science and religion
Fear is now a dogma in the streets of life
Planted by young and old
Fear is germinating from the womb of humanity
Recklessly and carelessly uprooting any sense of hope
Fear is a monster storm
A gigantic hurricane is heading for our minds
Fear is a dragon
An ancient monster is re-born
Fear is a global fever
Every citizen of the global village is afraid
There is no medicine for this unclassified disease
Neither science nor religion has a remedy for fear
Only the spirit knows the origin of fear
Fear is nothing but a careless embrace of the enemy
The spirit is the only shield against fear
And unless your spirit knows the light
Fear will always be your companion
Do not hold fear higher than hope
Hope is the fortress on which to hide your thoughts
Hope is the solvent on which to dissolve fear
Fear is nothing but an opportunistic infestation of the spirit
It is a spiritual warfare
Do not be alarmed
Fear has been defeated so many times
Just embrace your spirit
And be one with your true self

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
