Zindagi

Shikayat Toh Sabhi Karte hai
Par shikayat karoge Kab Tak

Haqeeqat Ki Talaash To Sabko Hai
Par Haqeeqat Talaashoge Kab Tak

Jo Bhi Hai
Yehi Zindagi Hai Bas

Jilo Thoda Iseh
Zinda Ho Jab Tak

Yeh khaalipan


Jab Meri Bechaini Mit Jayegi
Jab Mere Dilko Sukoon Mil Jayega
Yeh Khaalipan Mit Jayega

Do Pal Ki Chandni Ke Liye
Aj Bhi Zinda Hoon Main
Meri Khaamoshi Ke Ageh Aasmaan Bhi Khatam Ho Jayega

Kehne Ke Liye Toh Roz Marta Hoon Main
Thoda Aur Marne Ke Liye
Yeh Deewana Kal Phir Ayega

Dar-es-Salaam Harbour

Dar harbour full of teeming life
A mass of colourful ships and boats
Radiant do your waters gleam

Each wave gently lapping the shore
Sails fluttering in the breeze

Slowly yet violently the yachts jib
As they sail and tack against the wind
Loud blast out the ships horns
As the tugs pilot them to sea or dock
And the gulls screech diving in their wakes
Many colourful dhows sail in to moor

Hot breezes on my face
As midday temperatures soar
Raising our sails we float
Bringing our bows into the wind
Out to sea we are headed
Under full sail we skim the waves
Ready for what ever adventures await

The One and Only

No words in the universe can help the intrductory of my apologetic note
The dissapointment i hear is poison to my health without any antidote 
The three days you were in my presence surpass the value of all my days put together
The world around me disapears when i embrace you with my arms its a moment I crave to last forever
You are the inspiration behind all my poems the source of my stimulation
fortunate to have been loved by you perhaps one day i'll deserve your angel baby dedication.
My next words are honest,simple,short but true, Im very sorry Ness
You might not care of my existence,its just a pain I had to get off my chest.
Reading my words you may think Im a fraud but, its reality I need you like I need air its not a choice but, a nessecity.

Snooze Button

10am means,
           I awake at eight
               quietly plotting my dreams
                                             and at seven,
                                                           
                                                              I barely exist
                                                                   from six
                                                      -- & God,             it's 
                                                              much too early
                                                                 & too late
                                              to pick up these hours 
                                              like sticks,
                                              and lug them home

Dont Judge Me

Don’t judge me that’s the wrong thing to do, talk about me if you need to but that’s the wrong thing to do
Don’t judge me, you can’t judge me!  I’m not perfect but neither are you maybe you need to get a clue you’ve been through stuff and I have too. But no one knows just how much I’ve been through not even hint. O you don’t wanna listen my breathe stinks I need a mint what great advice you give when your being so illiterate. Why try to avoid the conversation this confrontation, So you can talk about me then but you can’t listen now. You have no idea your not from my part of town. O and you can judge why ever not its not like your human maybe you think your all powerful and you have the power to know whos going were in the future….. No you’ll never know until you see the beautiful successful person I grow up to be and then maybe then you’ll know that it’s not what you wear or what expensive things that you have that make you the person you are nor does it dictate your future.

Me Televison

Me Television is tired of always being starred at like Im crazy when its something scary on me , me television is tired of always seeing tears when i show something bad o the news. I am tired of always being moved around and watched all day by BIG FAT PEOPLE WHO DONT KNOW HOW TO GET A LIFE. So sick of constantly getting my buttons pushed  carelessly fearlessly if only me television could speak!

I cant stand to see

To be or not to be to see or not to see that sometimes you need someone to love you someone like me. The fear in your heart the struggle in your eyes. They say when you see the light don't go to it but i think theres more to it , isn't light suppose to be good cuz darkness is surely bad  I see much light in your life, light in your past but all u see is darkness! I wish i could take you on a trip , give you just one wish, take a walk through a  park sit and talk on a park bench. Just to make you smile! ANYTHING! To make you smile because i see so much pain so much struggle so much fear in your heart and in your mind , let me be your guide because i cant stand to see this because of how much you mean to me. If only i could rub your back, massage your feet,  sing you a song, take you to get a bite to eat. ANYTHING! just ANYTHING! to make you remember all the good times and laughs we had at least last December, but i haven't seen it since i know that inside you really do miss those days we all spent.....

The Meaning Of Life

 One day, while walking in the park,
 I met an old man sitting on a bench,
 looking up at the blue sky.
 I sat next to him. He looked at me
 Like I was his son or a friend.

 Why do you look at the sky? I asked.
 His wrinkles smiled. 
 The sky, he said, has been here 
 since before I was born.
 And the moon, and the clouds, and the stars 
 are beautiful to me. 

 Then he looked at the huge tree on his right,
 a bird sitting on the trunk, twittering.
 He listened merrily and happily
 And he said...this bird is free
 It jumps from trunk to trunk
 It goes from land to land
 It eats food for free

 I listened to his humble talk.
 Stunned and enchanted by his story 
 His simple truth ran
 through the chapters of my life. 

 The truth is simple, he said. 
 No one can reject or forbid.
 Life is to live without hate or greed
 With others on this grand planet
 We live under one sky
 We walk on the same sand
 We breathe the same air
 We eat the same food
 We drink water from the same clouds
 We share the same feelings 
 of passion and compassion.

 Man! Come. Let us reason and reflect.
 Life is a path to another life
 We are walkers to another place.
 We encounter many trials and tests.
 Some we fail. Some we pass.
 Step by step, we walk out our destiny.
 Today or tomorrow, we will vanish, 
 not remembered 
 after one or two generations.
 So, why not laugh and dance?
