  1. Strange

    that you should call me
    ďhey you unknownĒ
    when not long ago
    everything about you had my name written all over
    and just the mention of my name
    excited your heart and soul

    How you look the other way
    when we cross paths
    it seems youíve forgotten
    how my smile made you sparkle
    how you used to look forward
    to be with me
  2. The kinsmen

    If your #### causes you to sin, bite it off

    In my profession as one can never have too many friends infact if it were practical and possible I would have a friend every a hundred kilometer from Nairobi to Cape Town, because while driving on these roads you never know when you will need a friend. About three years back, I had an accident just outside Francistown in Botswana. My overland truck was mangled so badly that passersby thought it had any survivors. Actually I was alone and ...
  3. To love rebecca*3

    MAY BE

    Itís us who are too self-centered
    Itís us who need to change
    Itís us
    Who need to take the first step
    Itís us
    Who should think of what
    We can do for others
    And not what we can squeeze out of others

    Itís us who are the problem
    Itís us who lack the maturity
    Itís us
    who should seek to understand others
    itís us
    who should learn to tolerate others
  4. Let us do it

    let us do it
    let us shackle our hearts together
    and throw the key
    in a bottomless pit
    where no one
    will ever retrieve it
    and use it
    to separate us

    let us do it
    let us chain our selves together
    with chains
    that no one can break
    weíll have the key destroyed
    and forever
    we will be joined

    let us do it
    let us fuse together
    and form a bond
    that cannot ...

  6. hymn of a soul


    It was a well-to-do month
    When I attended a well-to-do cocktail party
    In a well-to-do private club
    During a well-to-do hour
    where I met well-to-do people
    Dressed in well-to-do evening clothes
    With well-to-do looks
    who spoke in well-to-do tones
    while sipping their well-to-do drinks
    cracking well-to-do jokes
    laughing well-to-do laughter
    and discussing well-to-do topics
    I spotted ...
  7. jobless-jacob mtuweta mdari

    itís energy going to waste
    itís painful
    itís dependency
    itís despair
    itís unemployment, though not the end of the world
    itís discouragingÖÖÖÖÖ..but still we hope and dream on

    it means living like a beggar
    it means not having money in the pocket
    it means not being able to pay the rent
    it means not being able buy your mother a gold chain
    it means not being able buy your father a seiko watch
    it means being beatenÖÖÖÖÖÖ..but ...
  8. like a lion- jacob m mdari

    like a lion
    like a radar its nose picks up the scent
    like a telescope its eyes spot the prey
    like a shadow it moves towards its quarry
    like a picture it freezes when the prey gets suspicious l
    ike a train it starts again, to glide smoothly towards the prey
    like a sniper, it tries to keep out of sight
    like a flash it strikes ÖÖ.. but misses
    like a spirit after a soul it does not give up
    like a true fighter it starts again ...
  9. i met a girl mama-jacob mtuweta mdari


    I met a girl mama
    Who isnít as dark as us
    But who is as light
    As the sole of washed feet
    With eyes the colour of the sky
    And hair thatís as soft
    As wool and as long as
    The gnuís tail
    Her slim figure reminds me of
    My two young sisters

    I met a girl mama
    Whose smile is as bright
    And refreshing as that of
    Any girl from the plains
  10. In my soul-jacob mtuweta mdari

    in my soul

    i sat in a corner last night
    and descended into the depths of my soul
    where i saw
    suspicion and distrust
    for the one whom i call my "leader"
    and dislike for the establishments
    that have caused pain among my people
    i saw a hypocritical soul
    which was no different from what it disliked
    a soul as bad as the rest

    i sat in a corner last night
    and descended into the depths of my soul ...
  11. A god like me

    a god like me

    i promised myself
    the next time youíd walk past me
    iíll say ďhiĒ
    and if you respond to my ďhiĒ with a smile
    then iíll add
    ďwhat a lovely smile you haveĒ
    and if you respond positively to my compliment
    then iíll push my luck further
    and ask you
    to allow me to have fresh lilies
    sent to you
    cause you strongly remind me of them
    then iíll ask for your name
    though i have known it for ...
  12. Beautiful

    Alone in the vastness The plains inflict loneliness The scorching sun Mercilessly assault him Hunger and thirst Gnaw his entrails But the male widow birdís dance Makes him forget his troubles
    He smiles as looks at it And he thinks Isnít it a beautiful world
    Alone in the vastness He seeks shelter from the sun Wishing to rest his tired legs Under an idle acacia tree The herdsman finds comfort Watching his animals rove Unmoved by the sunís heat As they feast on the tsavo new grass Startling ...
  13. To love rebecca

    Iíll love Rebecca more than myself
    Though it wasnít her I initially needed
    The one I needed initially
    Wanted a man who drove the sleekest car
    And flew first class or privately
    And not a man like me
    Who couldnít differentiate a jet from a helicopter
    And trusted his legs to take him anywhere and everywhere

    Iíll give Rebecca my best
    And assure her thereís no looking back
    Iíll let her have my heart

    Iíll love ...
  14. Love crisis

    Dear uncle,
    How are you faring? I hope better than me.
    Today should be a big highlight of this 34-day overland safari that I am running which is taking us through 5 African countries-Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia. We started in Nairobi headed west to see the Ugandan gorillas and returned back to Kenya. We made our entry into Tanzania from Kenya 2 days ago, and today we have set foot in the monarch of animals reserves; the Serengeti. In the truck we are 21, a crew of 3 ...

  15. fearful

    My phone rings, I answer it
    My wife is crying on the other end
    Her crying makes it difficult for me to understand what she is saying
    ďI can wait for him any more, I must goĒ
    I tell the parish secretary as I pocket my phone
    I request her to tell the priest to follow me
    As I drive into the compound
    I see clusters of small groups of people
    Some I know, some I donít, some am not sure if Iíve met
    Even on his death bed, he was still influential ...
