WATCH A SUNSET

There will be an infinite number of sunsets, But, we are finite, One day the sun will set, And you won’t be there to see it, So check out the sunset, When you can, While you still can. Advertisements

YOU WIN SOME, YOU LOSE SOME.

Men of yore donned on suits of armor, And charged head long into war, Ready to lose it all, Men of now don on suits, And charge into debate halls, To battle it out in the court of law, Battle suits may have changed, Battle grounds may have changed, But the spirit of battle never […]

QUARTER LIFE CRISIS

“Happy Birthday Sheila!” everyone chants cheerily. Sheila bends carefully over the cake so her party hat doesn’t tip over and after several tries she blows out all 26 candles. Her husband holds her hand and they masterfully divide and subdivide the cake into slices. Her friends then envelope her with hugs and kisses as they […]

HALF AND HALF

Half and half make a whole, You with me made me whole, But now that you’re gone, I feel lost, I feel empty, Every time the lights go off, I fall into the dark, In the shadow of your heart, Will you ever come back? Will you ever take me back? If I call, Will […]

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, […]

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 […]
