Harness Racing

Harness Racing ( Poem )

Horses pull a two wheeled cart
If it breaks you will depart

Place a bet before it starts
Good wager wins if played smart

Riders ready at the gate
Fans no longer have to wait

Athlete sport with high speed
Is a skill you surely need

At times a horse can fall down
Sad to see that come around

Last turn has crowd in a roar
We wait to hear close end score

If your looking to explore
My playlist has so much more

The Earth dry and bare; waiting eagerly for the drops of care;

Caught in the hot, steaming summer’s snare;

The flowers and creepers decorating window sills; all look desolate and ill;

As the nature withers away in the sun’s merciless glare.


The men and the wives; the kids and the wild;

All are enduring the summer’s waterless exile;

They are waiting for the rain; to relieve them of the heat pain;

And of that life which has become a sweaty turmoil.


The wind strong and gusty; makes the roads yellow and dusty;

And the air around becomes suffocating and musty;

The birds forget to sing; their lilting, musical thing;

Even as the tree leaves wristle and make noise so husky.


Then come the Monsoon showers; falling first on boughs and flowers;

Making the trees and plants glisten and glower;

So the monsoon comes in grace; driving away summer’s trace;

Lashing at window-panes with its all-reigning power.


As the monsoon drives away the summer heat; with its raining rhythm off-beat;

And the flower buds open up to return it’s greet;

And as the water seeps in soil; a refreshing fragrance arise;

While the rain continuous to cool down hot gardens and streets.


The Earth grows green; and water droplets gleam;

On the smooth, waxy surfaces of the leaves;

Everywhere the flowers grow; in pink, red, white or yellow;

While buds make their way blushingly between tendrils.

 The wet and soft soil; now grows fertile;

And tender green plantlets push through the Earth in style;

Through soil the tiny saplings peep; as their sown seeds begin to reap;

And the plants and crops shake off the Earth’s temporary curse sterile.


As the raindrops go pitter-patter; water in puddles begins to gather;

And the little birds begin to chirp, twitter and chatter;

The insects begin to hum along; their irritating and happy song;

While due to rain and wind the roofs on houses begin to chatter.


As the showers for some moments cease; after giving Earth life’s new lease;

And the pitter-patter of rain is gently appeased;

The sun coyly shines; a cloud it half hides behind;

While the fluffy clouds move along with the cool breeze.


The fields now green and bright; are an artist’s sheer delight;

Pleasing to the senses of smell and sight;

The fresh air so sweet to breathe; that with pleasure the body writhes;

In the newly born rainy sunlight.


But this sunlight so quickly goes; as thunderstorms blow to and fro;

And Earth engulfs in darkness that now grows;

The wind rises and howls; with a voice that trembles all souls;

And day and night this gale roars.


The trees in fear tremble and shake; as leaves, twigs and branches break;

And the life of these trees is put up at stake;

Birds in nests cower with fright; and due to cold shiver with all their might;

And live in fearful anticipation of what else the storm may rake.

The monsoon now shows its ugly face; gone are its days of grace;

Rainy calamities take its place;

Cyclones and floods destruct worldwide; the raging sea throws up its tide;

“Nature reigns supreme”, we are forced to say.


Same is the life of man; may he do what he can;

But destiny will always play a hand;

What all will man control? So he should let destiny play its role;

And enjoy life and act as the situation will demand.


Somedays will shine the sun; those days life will be fun;

And work will be successful how much ever it’s done;

Somedays by the fun you will tire; and will long to get back into the attire;

Of normal life, however boring or glum.


Sometimes hope will come out; like a tiny plant sprouts;

And will remove from your mind every shade of doubt;

It will be a bright, hopeful ray; but for long it may not stay;

So we must make most of it when hope sprouts.


Just as the shower of joy; after summer comes out shy;

So shower of success will come when you have almost given up the try;

It will wash away your helpless sigh; and will give you a new will to try;

Which will help you succeed by-and-by.


Just as the sun goes behind the cloud; when thunder is heard aloud;

And darkness suddenly falls on Earth all around;

So also failure will touch you once; its upto you to prevent its repeated occurrence;

Or due to failure remain depression bound.


Sometimes through demotivation you will go; sometimes loads of success you'll know;

For we need all types of experience to make us grow;

Like some days it is wet; some days the sun for long doesn’t set;

But then it needs both the rain and the sun to make a RAINBOW…

The lines on the field are painted a bright white.
I see the sun set slowly behind the goal post.
My eyes are blinded by the electric light.
At games we go all out and do the most.
I can hear the sizzle and pop of greasy concession stand food.
The crowd cheers from the stands.
From around the corner a little kid playing tag begins to cry,
And music is played from the band.
The quarterback passes the ball,
And the cheerleaders yell for him to go all the way.
While he is sprinting to the end zone we hope that he does not fall.
“And that is another touchdown” we hear the announcer say.
This is a Friday night football game.
 Someday these boys could reach real fame.

              let today be the present tense.
              yesterday be the past tense.
              tomorrow be the future tense.

              let we be the parts of speech.
              you are the noun there,
              i am your verb,
              you can make the pronoun to talk about the noun,
              adverb can't stand without verb,
              let adjective be verb which qualifies the noun,
              noun you can have the company of preposition,
              conjunction shouldn't come between us,
              by seeing you i became interjection.

              let your surroundings be the sentence.
              you be the subject.
              make your life verb.
              make use of object,
              you and you only be the complement.
              don't adjust and go and become adjunct.

              don't listen the idioms of some idiots.
              we don't want to be homophones.
              you are the main clause.
              i'm your subordinate clause.
              without main subordinate cant.,
              this is life. enjoy it in grammar's way.....

Stay Strong

We are a living target where everything is supposed to go wrong
 We are suppose to be dumb make mistakes buy things for just today or get locked up or die for our struggles or adversity
We weren't suppose to be where we are today running the country or even sports but you see we can make it
 All it takes is patience and progress to makes success don’t live for retaliation and be laid out or locked up for a decision you make
 Live against the odds and keep your head up because you made it today
 It's not a race to compete it’s a model to show that you can grow from agony. Got to keep your head up in tough times and see that after the rain the sunshine’s
 Don't give up cause our loss is the news gain we got to win over our situations to see through the pain and take charge on being brave. 
Let’s win others over and show we are so misunderstood regardless of if we came from nothing look at how we changed it for the good
 Stay up don’t look down because that confidence will help those struggling turn around. Stay up and strong so others can see how you handled adversity. Stay strong!

A Mother's Intuition

As life is created from her womb
Bountiful preparation is needed
Charisma, duty, and love
Develop the best care offered
Ecstatic for recording memorabilia
For such experiences occur only once
Given the opportunity to successfully grow
Home redefines as “elsewhere besides the abode”
Ill from separation
Joy still remains in the love connection
Kept in touch through messages of endearment
Life becomes more heartwarming
Mothers nurture endless dreams

*Since Mother's day is nearby, this poem is for all of the caring and devoted mothers out there!:)

Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death

I stay up through the nights
Will I get to eat tonight
Will I see the day I turn 21
One-Day will I feel the pain of a gun
Will I die young

Am I asking to many questions
Does everything happen for a reason
Is everything I go through one of Gods lessons
Will I go to Heaven

I stay up through the nights
Will I reach new heights
Lord tell me everything will be alright
Now I think I want to be in love with the lights
I just don’t want to fall to a Price
Lord tell me everything will be alright

I stay up through the night
My eyes are getting heavy
Am I ready to sleep
Because Sleep Could be Deadly

Never in a million years

Never in a million years would i have thought 
this to be,
my bestfriend, companion, and so special
to me.
if i wouldnt have opened my eyes,
she could have just passed by and walked right 
outta my life.
but in Gods weird since of loving humor way,
today he brought Brittany Back to stay,
a life from my past that i had lost,
never knowing what would be Gods cost.
Now i sit hear always waiting to see,
her simple smile brighten up for me.
The friendship, hugs, smiles and the tug at my heart,
now i know it was just the start.
I may not always be the best,
but yet she still chooses me above all the rest.
all i ask is please let this be I love you Brittany,
and God please bring her home to Me...

Success never depends on
The way you dress or speak
What it demands for
Is your happiness at its peak!

It never comes to a person
Who thinks of himself to be the best
Life instead proves to him that
Over confidence has made him an unwanted pest

Success never chases the one who gets
The literal meaning of dedication
And the one ehose hardwork
Never takes a vacation

Burning the midnight oil
Is the first lesson for success
Hardwork is the only thing
Ehich does not harm
Even in excess

The second mantra to succeed
Is to build self confidence
But if built in over
Can prove to be an interferance

Following the four D's
Dedication discipline devotion determination
Will lead you best to dream completion
And will givevyou power
To overcome fear of tough competition

These mantras, if accomplished
Can cause you to succeed
But only if you don't let
Pride to breed
This will destrot your future with a thrive
And may cause you to strive

Otherwise, noone can block your way
Even oroblrms will tend to stay away!!

Grey Bird

On that cloudy weekend in June 
I hear a soft and graceful tune 
from the grey bird on the tree 
Singing sweet lullabies felt 
blessed in the moment 
My body tingles of joy at sight 
Gazing out through 
my open door,
Letting thoughts fly free
Releasing love out into the horizon 
Heart filled with emotion came 
over me 
Grey bird stood playing its tune 
for awhile and on the wings of 
letting go
Then as the rain fell from the 
sky the grey bird flew away 
I blew a kiss to the clouds and 
utterd these simple words of I 
Love You father ( who's now in 
heaven ) and yet I hope to hear 
that grey bird sing again once 
more for me 
Farewell, love your son

Mzuzu Academy

All started small
But soon began to grow
Our academics and sports
Shaped us all

All started small
But soon began to flow
Our peace and unity
Shaped us all

All started small
But soon began to score
Our soccer team
Shaped us all

All started small 
But soon began to show
Our volleyball championship
Shaped us all

All started small
But soon on the go
Our new realized athlete
Shaped us all

All stated small
But soon approach its goal
Our Cambridge results
Shaped us all.

The Leafless Tree Poem

The life of all companies starts with an idea, much like planting a seed that begins the life of a single tree.

The tree slowly develops and occasionally produces a leaf, while all alone primarily a leafless tree.

The tree continues to grow and produce more leafs, this is quite indicative of individual growth, the makings of a vibrant tree.

Braving both the fall and winter the tree primarily remained leafless; however, prosperity occurred during the spring and summer, overshadowing what was obviously a false weakness.

Prosperity revealed itself through the production of countless more leafs -- nature's demonstration of talent and commerce, the spectacle of a completely leafed tree.

                   visualizing our life as new beginning everyday,
                   cause every sunrise bring a new ray of hope
                   and let me keep thinking of
                   turning everything possible
                   making us a dreamer of my own world 
                   grooming us to become thinker for the tomorrow 
                   overall turning us into a believer 
                   that we can make up of everything we dream of
                   life is tough sometimes knocking us down as hell,
                   but learning to rise up again makes us wise 
                   punching and pinning down all obstacles
                   come on, all the dreamers to break the hurdles
                   and let us dream for all others too
                   cause we are born to make the change
                   we are born to make the differences
                   we are born to be givers

Success is

Success is not just money...
But it is when you learn how to use it!!
Success is not just having  a bungalow...
But living peacefully in that bungalow!!
Success is not just living luxurious life physically...
But also living luxurious life mentally
Success is not just dreaming....
But making those dreams come true in reality!!
Success is not just showing off wen u have everything... 
But showing off in helping the needy!!
success is not just scoring marks...
But getting knowledge out of it!!
Success is not just hitting the sky...
But is hitting for what u were bounced!!
Success is not reaching the higher level...
But completing small levels who took you to the higher one!!
Success is climbing all the stones that are fallen!!
Success is bursting out 
by crossing the silence
and simply practicing the disciplinesn to aim...
This is success!!

For decades I longed to see you
Oh! You accomplishment of aim
You are the fulfillment of purpose
And the result of one’s artfulness
With patience choose you your friends
Hard work and determination you are
Great men of all time you made them all
The sheriff, the mayor the king and queen
You are the reason of their pride 
When they succeed they became successful
And now they have seen success

Success is not just being 
the best, 
it's been so unassisted in a 
Success is not been 
someone else, 
but by making yourself a 
role model to everyone else.
Success is not just 
academic stability, 
it's the mandate to succeed 
in every good ability.
Success is not just getting 
there first, 
it's sometimes needed to 
carry the rest.
Success isn't ' i know and 
you don't ', 
neither is it ' you know and 
i don't '.
It always says ' what can 
we learn from eachother ', 
or ' lets strive to be the best 
together '.
Success is not  measured 
by fames or fortunes, 
but by the amendment of 
the past misfortunes.
Success has nothing to do 
with your age, 
neither is it acheived by 
lust or rage.
Success is not having all 
you want, 
but by you appericiating, 
cos that will count.
Success is set in motion by 
great men, 
who have nothing to do wit 
bad omen.
success doen't smile and 
say ' i have all ', 
neither does it laugh and 
say ' you don't have at all '.
Success isn't in knowledge 
or wealth, 
but it's in justice and divine 
Success is acheived by 
great readers, 
who end up being 
exceptional leaders.
Success is not a feeling of 
but by a unique character 
and humility.
Coupled with hardwork and 
in other to acheive all 
dreams and visions.
Success doesn't mean 
financial prosperity, 
but it means heavenly 
To get tn the house of 
one must walk through the 
road of success.
Successful people believe 
right from d day of their 
and in that which can't be 
destroyed by moth or death.

Today we celebrate our 
success after years of perseverances,
struggles & hardship that 
shapes up our academic appearance,
We reminisce the 
challenges that stood 
before us,
and we savor the victories 
that lay the key stone to 
our progress,
It was not so long ago 
when we dared to dream,
and not so long ago we 
dared to take the first step 
despite how hard it seem,
Along the way we met a lot 
of trials,
but our burning desire to 
reach our goals has kept us 
going through the miles,
Along the way were many 
uncertainties that kept us 
on a stake,
but certain beacons of light 
showed us the right path to 
Let us thank God therefore 
for His unceasing grace,
And our professors for their 
immeasurable dedication in 
helping us through this 
our parents for their 
unconditional support,
and our friends for their 
awesome consort,
The medals and diplomas 
we received today must not 
 be mere symbols of high 
But are ladders that will see 
us through life trades,
Lets make a good use of 
everything we've learn to 
our benefit,
To the point where we can
 boldly say that “We've 
made it !”.

I See You

I see you when you skin your knees,
Each breaking dawn, pronouncing pleas.
I see you when you burn that wax
Each tiresome night, you don’t relax.
When you lace your boots, I see you still
You hit the pitch and keep it real.
I see you on your eight to four,
Doing your part, and sometimes more.
We sweat, we toil, we do it all
So out this darkness we may crawl.
We cry, we weep, we endure shame,
So we don’t leave the bastards that we came.
More times than one though we may fail,
As we progress through storm and hail,
It matters not how oft we fall,
What sure imports is standing tall.
So forge on with hopes on high,
And see success your woes decry.
I see you all and dove my hat.
We’ll see the light, and that’s a fact.
We’ll meet with smiles to share the glow
And share gold where ends the rainbow.

Blue Bird

Blue Bird

All alone inside of my magical little paradise called my mind is an peaceful and quiet, the sun is like a gentle kiss on the cheek, and the people are just so warm and friendly but watch out because if you open your eyes everything you once knew will be gone. This magical little realm has an bloody little twist to it. The sun that was once as comforting as an warm blanket was in fact the glistening moon and the empty black sky, and the people are now all blood thirsty monsters that are no longer affected by the sun light are now out for blood.

I run to escape the sickening but yet oh so enticing scent of blood and failure, I run to escape the screams of those who's lives were cut just too short, and I run to escape the sight of the undead, blood thirsty zombies who are on the hunt for others to join their group. I'm running, running to safety and security but all the time there's nothing but pit falls and traps. I'm running and success isn't that far away but just then I see prince charming I stop and become distracted by his promising words but just then he too becomes a monster. I scream and try to run but I just can't you trap me in fire and I can't escape. 

My mind goes numb, I can feel the darkness further enclose around me, my mind goes blank, and I forget about everything. On the inside I'm screaming, fighting, kicking to get away but on the outside I'm a love sick puppy. I know I'm stronger than this but there's something about you that I just can't get over. Just as the darkness seems to grow closer an light appears and an blue bird fights off my nightmare monster and takes me back to my snowy paradise where I'm safe and at peace and I continue my lonely dark and cold path to my brightly lite future with the little blue bird by my side reminding me that I am and will forever be loved by both my family, people who actually care about me, and god.

The Answer is There

Please hear my plea
Those drugs you got will not set you free
That pain and suffering its not the world's fault
Its that needle that straw and even that dot

How much you thought you finally found
The secret to happiness but it drove you straight through the ground
but I'm not addicted I can stop anytime
Well give it a week or a month or until the end of this rhyme

You suffer from this thing some call a disease
And if you continue on you'll suffer a consequence like me
Jail institutions and death what a lie
Until you realize is the truth and quite right

The last thing you want is to be laying in bed
Sick close to death and full of regret
Or even trapped in a small windowless cell
Wondering if this is the end of your tale

So throw away those needles get rid of that line 
That baggy those pills 
They're just a waste of your time
The truth is simple and lies in a book

Called Alcoholics Anonymous 
Read it just once and you're hooked
There's these events called meetings
That are a such a sight to see

Full of fun loving people Living this life called recovery
It might be scary when you enter at first
But I beg you PLEASE give it a chance.
You'll be surprised what you're worth

You should never be afraid of your dreams...
Just because you can not see the rainbow, majority of the time 
things are not what they seem.
Follow your passion & alleviate the doubt.
For every expedition there's a reward at the end of the route.
Find your purpose & pursue it with vigor.
And threw the storms stand strong, don't blink, & don't wither!
Be the impetus that God has created you to be.
Let God's will be done & you shall find your destiny!

Healing In Motion

Open minded progress determines the path.
Unlike years of mental numbness quieting the laugh.
A breath of fresh air as it cleanses the soul
Erases the emptiness obstructing the goal
A magical world for me to explore
No ties that bind restricting thoughts like before
Brightness invades all the moods once left dark
Putting an end to the misery so the healing can start 
No more will I anchor my mind in the sorrow
Choices I make today paves the path to tomorrow

Part of Success

           Part of success is the failure in life. The things we look at in disgrace, the things we look at as the negative, those are the thing we need  in our life. For the few, the little. The ones. The ones who can look at any thing they've been through in life  turn it into something you truly want... Something with all the negative. Most people bundle it up. When really it should be shown as your strength. For one the mistakes in life can push you forward in life, make you stronger, wiser, faster and better at whatever you channel it to. Once able to harness this ability you'll have mastered the truth, of time and success. The ability to put all stuff aside and have no excuses. Which directly leads you to what you want in life. Just keep searching for it will not easy. In fact only few people make it due to the nature of this extravagant achievement. For not every one was destined to be pushed as hard as others. Because only they have it. The others have the opportunity to take it. Show anything can be taken over or achieved by persistent hard work, minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day, month after month and year after year. But what seems as a impossible goal... Will be an permanent ability, that will last forever. The ability to rise up above the crowd. And show why you deserve to be who you want to be. For everything and anything can only be achieved by not only hard work, but simply choices and time. But by self-understandment, knowing your failures your weaknesses................. to acquire none.

Wars colonized the continent apparition that attributed us and cut the

Melts the hope we paint to the shape of Sahara desert.

Stepping out from the 
tunnel of champion, 
Where my soul and victory 
have been bonded as a 
Climbing higher than 
And for sure my victory is 
Fought many battles 
And came through even 
I race across every finish 
And makes the top stories 
and headlines.
I can hear the cheering 
And the screaming of my 
name aloud.
Roll out the drums, 
And blow the trumpet 
across cities and kingdoms.
For earth has begot a hero, 
A hero of class and defined 
Even when i don't get 
much love from my haters, 
The taste of victory grows 
even much sweeter.
Victory at last in the end, 
With so much foes and no 
The joy victory kept me 
And the zeal of winning 
kept me moving.
Created with the power of 
an immortal, 
That makes every 
conspiracy futile.
Inbuilt with the soul of a 
That's why am a super 
Now standing at the 
pinnacle of greatness, 
After working through the 
road of success.
Hearing my name all over 
the corners of the earth, 
Gives me immeasurable joy 
i never once felt.
Each time i crumble or 
It makes me even more 
For winning is the aim, 
And victory is my name.
Finally am a success story, 
To God be the glory.
No matter the amount of 
hate i get, 
The more victorious i get.
The more they think i will 
The more i make them look 
Even when my chances 
grows thinner, 
It really doesn't matter 
because in the end am a
