BREATH OF LIFE

I was looking for a breath of life, Something to make me feel alive, And I thought I would find it in the bottle, So I sought it at the bottom of every bottle, But the more I took, The more the alcohol took away, I wanted to feel the rush, I wanted to feel […]

WILLPOWER

Picture it for a second, Imagine it for a moment, It’s you at the summit of the stadium, The crowd is calling out your name, Their ullulations wash over you, So you stand there and savour the moment, All those sleepless nights finally paid off, All your sweat and blood was worth it, Question is, […]

HAPPIER

Standing on the fourth floor, Watching you go, Maybe I should chase you down, Maybe I should call you back, But I know you won’t come back, And I’m okay with that, Because I don’t want to be the reason you’re sad, I don’t want to be the reason you don’t believe in love, I […]

WHO ARE YOU?

Who are you? You’re not the man in the mirror, That’s only your reflection, You’re not who they say you are, That’s only their perception, Who are you outside the names they gave you? Who are you outside being their son or daughter? Who are you outside being their brother or sister? See, we often […]

TRIBUTE TO MY BROTHER

As I reflect on the year that has been, I have so much to say, Early on in the year in January, I lost my big brother in a car accident, And that took its toll on me, More than any of you will ever know, More than I’ll ever show, See my biggest fear […]

THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK

Put away the facade, That fake smile you put on, Peel back the mask, The one you put up to fit in, Who do you become? When you’re by yourself, When you know no one is watching, What lies underneath your fake smile? The one you put on when everyone’s watching, That face you hide […]

TIME FLOWS LIKE A RIVER

Time flows like a river, It flows linearly, Flowing forward, Never backward, And our lives follow its course, Our entire existence bends to its rhythm, But we are only along for a while, We only get to ride the tide for a short time, Yet we spend so much of our short ride regretting, Regretting […]

SCEPTIC

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been a sceptic, I questioned everything, From people to Religion, This is because people often weren’t who they claimed to be, And things often weren’t what they seemed to be, So, I learned early on, That there was almost always a hidden motive, Behind every action, And there […]

CHASING THE SUN

We spend so much of our lives searching, Seeking for something, Some seek fame, Some seek money, Some seek power, We all want to climb the ladder, The ladder to the corner office, The ladder out of poverty, The ladder that leads to happiness and bliss, Hoping that when we get this, Everything will fall […]
