Calm Before a Storm

My mind is broken.
Darkness comes,
Darkness goes.
RAGE just ensues.

The hold it takes, I know not of.
The FURY, the ANGER,
No control,
Pure FRENZY.
The blindness, the numbness.
The ANGER grows,

My mind is broken.
Darkness comes,
Darkness goes.
RAGE just ensues.

Pressure like a Volcano.
Once I go, I cannot stop.
Let the Lava flow.
The explosion damages,
The explosion destroys,
The explosion Kills.


My mind is broken.
Darkness comes,
Darkness goes.
RAGE just ensues.

Watch out for the Calm before the Storm.
The silence,
The stillness,
Dead,
Immovable.
There is nothing,
Then it HITS.
FEROCIOUS intensity,
Nothing stands in its wake.
The devastation is immeasurable,
What just happened?
I was trapped,
I was helpless.
Is anything safe?

My mind is broken.
Darkness comes,
Darkness goes.
RAGE just ensues.


The Volcano slows,
It’s coming to a stop.
The Storm is dissipating,
There is just calm.
Looking back to see, what is left in ANGUISH!
Looking back to see, the WASTE!
Looking back to see, what is left to SAVE!
Looking back to see, what it is I’ve LOST!

My mind is broken.
Darkness comes,
Darkness goes.
RAGE just ensues.

The Volcano is dormant,
The Storm is gone.
How long will the calm last,
No one knows!

My mind is broken.
Darkness comes,
Darkness goes.
RAGE just ensues.

Shush!!

What do we want when we ask for silence?
What is it we hear when we want our silence?

Silence is the sound of nature.

Pitter patter of tiny rustling feet.
Birds singing at the break of dawn.

Silence is the sound of nature.

Howling of wind.
Stillness of the air.

Silence is the sound of nature.

Sound of the sea, crashing of waves.
Whale song, beautiful and calming.

Silence is the sound of nature.

Sound of rain, tap, tap, tapping.
Smell of electricity in thunder storms air.

Silence is the sound of nature.

What do we want when we ask for silence?
What is it we hear when we want our silence?

Here comes my first post of the new year, dedicated to all giving hands around the world. Let's all take the act of giving as a matter of duty and the world will surely be a better place to live. Keep on giving.... God is watching from a distance. Happy new year.


GIVING
Giving me your moment is not a waste of time
I am lonely and down
Need a helping hand and a listening ear
I guess you can be an angel sent from heaven
So wait a minute and hear me out

Giving me your mind is not a waste of heart
I am a little man wandering in despair
Need a heart to call my home
I guess your tender heart suits my abode
So open your heart
And let me in

Giving me your bread is not a waste of food
I am hungry and behold, angel of death is getting closer to me
Need some recipes to live beyond this time
I guess you can feed me up a bit
So open your store
And share me a little

Giving everything is not a waste of anything
So let's start giving

Loves Truth and Bond

Im so in love there are no words.
The heart quickens with each thought of us.
Your so in love there are no words.

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, seasons changing but always remaining.
The reality of life is the love that is shared.
Winter, Autumn, Summer, Spring, seasons changing but always remaining.

The way I feel a mystery to you.
Looking upon you, the butterfly's flutter.
The way you feel a mystery to me.

Love is beautiful just like me.
The love that is felt, such a sickness.
Love is beautiful just like you.

The good times, the hard times.
Love everlasting, we shape our future.
The hard times, the good times.

The bonds of our love hold me to you.
I have no fears, just hopes and dreams.
The bonds of our love hold you to me.

Love is its own truth,
As we are to each other,
I am to you as you are to me,
the love that is shared,
Is meant to break free.

Below is a poem to appreciate my hands. For those that don't have it, you possess more other things i also lack, what matters most is GOOD HEART. for those that under use them, pick up. For those that over use them, relax. For those that use them wrongly, beware & be wise. And for those that use them wisely, keep it up. Enjoy...

MY HANDS
A pair of two
Leaf-like with five tiny tools a piece
Unity is their strength
My able soldiers
Always they obey my commands
Never will they go against me
At alert at every moment
Ready for the next action
No retreat, no surrender
They mould my destiny
And shape my future
My life dependants
Just a little brain interpretation
They do the power work
One moment, they are weak
Next moment, they are back stronger
They put bread on my table
.... Straight to my mouth
They groom me up
And drive my life on and on
Those are my hands - my loyal companions

Sometimes fifteen word write-up is more meaningful and purposeful than million word own. I think these words are clear enough to change the world for better...

Hi People, below is a poem dedicated to all those in tears at the moment, never worry there's always a better tomorrow. Enjoy.

WHEN TEARS SPEAKS
Don't hold me back
Time for me to flow
Through the hollow parts of your eyes
And clean your sight for a clearer vision
To see a better tomorrow

You are so hurt and hot
Your heart is aching
Your vision is blocked
Your mission is defeated
Your dream is fading
Your body is weak
Your spirit is down
Your soul is wandering in the wilderness
Not worthy a life again

Here comes me
Your inner water-fall
I roll down your cheeks
Down to the mother-earth
Waste away
For you to see a way
To ease your pain
To cool your nerves
And make your brain settle
To turn your despair to hope
To bring back your confidence and self-esteem
To give you a new life

I'm your comforter
Your eye-opener
So, kindly allow me
To have a free flow
Never worry
Next time, i will come - tears of joy


US

Before we met, I was a shamble.
My life, it took a fearful turn,
A life lesson some must learn.

I know now, I am alive.
You are the one,
For which my heart thrives.

My love for you, ever growing,
Our life together, never slowing.
A promise made, a promise kept,
A bond we have and both protect.

The love we share of which I know,
My heart will never weaken.
The love we share, for all to see,
An everlasting beacon.❤️

Below is one of my favorites of all time. I wrote it some years back. It's dedicated to those that are far apart from their love. It will definitely reignite your sense of belonging and responsibility. Enjoy.

SEE YOU....... MY LOVE
See you on pay day
When I'll buy you all what money can buy
And groom you up
Like the real Africa queen that you are
Hand in hand
Side by side
We go shopping all day

See you on raining day
When heavenly blessings will shower down on us
And wash our tears away
In the rain, we will kiss and dance to the tune of nature
The tune, right from the angels of sound and purity
See you on sunny day
When sunlight will shine on everything we do
And lit up our way
For us not to go astray

See you on holy day
When we will bow down before Most High
And say our prayers
To be forgiven and blessed like sacred cows
And go unpunished unlike scape goats

See you on holiday
When we will free our minds
From all life uprising and unrest
And go places we have never been before
With pleasure, we will make sacrifice for our love

Till then,
See you..... My love
