Thanks for joining me! This is where I bear my heart, stitched to my sleeves.
I tried howling at the moon, but only poetry came out.
Poetry is necessary for me, it’s more than just a means to express myself. It’s also how I weigh myself in my spiritual journey – like the scales of Ma’at. At this point, my journey beckons me to share my heart with you. Here, my thoughts are as bare as a moon-lit night at a shore… and you may read my mind.
I have #HaikuForBreakfast every Monday. I have my free verse poems every alternating Thursday… and I post an article/opinion piece reflecting on my opinions, thoughts and experiences every alternating Saturday.
I’ve been a poet for a decade, and now I am exploring my own voice as a writer. I humbly come to you with two things; the throbbing heart of an empath, and the inquisitive mind of a philosopher. I promise to create works that pack a lot of emotional and intellectual content, as I speak from spirit to the soul.
I am a free spirit – one with the universe.
These are, my lo-fi poems.
Whilst you’re here, the next best place to check out is either my about page, or keep up with my projects. I’m sure you’ll find some good content there.
So the other day I came across someone’s post on Instagram… The post was a screenshot of a very skeptical tweet.
On the tweet, the person wrote about how loyalty is above love and that love is just a feeling. The person further claimed that it didn’t matter whether you’d love or hate them – just being loyal is what matters.
As soon as I was through that paragraph, I couldn’t wait to disagree. I had such strong emotions about it; that I realized that I’m undoubtedly an advocate for love. The whole thing made me ask questions about myself and my views on love… and as usual, I decided to probe deeper into the matter. I’m not nearly close to knowing everything about love, but I remember a few things.
In the context of this piece, love isn’t going to be just about romance, but also encompassing relationships of all kinds.
This piece is dedicated to uBaba Oliver Mtukudzi, who recently passed away, and all the music legends whom I have had the pleasure of listening to. And, this was actually written on the Wednesday that uBaba passed on. That same night I sat at my desk writing this, not knowing he has lost his life. The somberring news came to me on Thursday morning. May your spirit live on – in song.
Right now, I have in mind uBaba’s song; Ndakuvara.
