I hope- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

I hope I am right; As I labour in the rain, To speak in the light, Righteousness is in vain, The right is so tight, When will I gain? Because to the end I will fight, And I hope I will gain.   I hope of May; The month of the few. To the Lord […]

Falling- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

In one’s lifetime; At one a time; And even without rhyme, Man climbs high; With actions packed and nigh. At the end one will sigh.   Adventures to be explored; And the truth to be retold. The brave to be commended, And the witty to be recommended. But one must once fall, At times even […]

Debts unpaid- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

I sit down; Thoughts rain on me in torrents, I swim in the river of memories, Remembering what I was shown. I saw with my own eyes! Whatever on earth they did? Attacks on peaceful African settlements, With sticks that spit deadly fires!   Calling themselves superpowers, ‘Supermen’ saving Africa, From blinding barbaric acts. They […]

Black Funeral song- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

All clad in black, Others in forms of sack. Tears rolling down the cheeks, The ceremony then kicks. A scream is heard, Soldiers at guard.   Why kill our hero? With nothing but zero! You killed our son, Using all in a gun. Imprisoned him you did, It’s all bad a deed.   Making a […]

Fate- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

Fate, ooh! Fate! Fate? All your games I hate! Because I think I’ve got a date, With all I have in my soul mate.   This moment you bring me happiness, The next you bring me happiness, The next is ardently sadness, Nothing but tormenting loneliness, Next is undoubtedly goodness!   Ours intertwined destiny, I […]

Poet’s agony- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

Including the rhyme, Conserving time. The poet will write and write, Only what is right. Winning the game, One is after fame.   Using as many, Styles big and tiny. It’s all agonizing, Before compromising, Burning the midnight oil, Hot coffee one will boil.   Each has a dream, Of being the cream, Publishing a […]

Down the street- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

I was walking down the street; I felt all good, As happy as sand boys I was in mood. I never guessed an angel I would meet! In my heart I felt all good; Because I had done my best, The poor I had given my food.   I had provided them with love, In […]

Life- by Ephraim P. Kenyanito

What is there to be said? It’s just a landscape that a traveler; Must go through. So full of hills, countless deep valleys, Crocodile infested rivers, Must cross. Cliffs are there to be avoided, Sweet lavender scented flowers, Only for those who are best. Rocky mountains to be climbed. At the end of the landscape, […]
