My hands trembled. I was angry, hurt, confused all at once.
She kept texting and my replies were instant. We were tearing each other apart; or so I thought.
I ran into my room and flung my head at the wall. I was too upset for words.
I yanked my clothes off the hangers in my wardrobe and threw them into my suitcase.


Words| Intro

By Kanja

I wonder when they’ll start to listen

If they’ll ever zoom out and see my vision,

All this for my team

They’ve always been a million,

I’m declaring it now

That Kanja’s for the children,

I mean you got a good message

Mines just more prudent,

Look around with marvel

And realize that we’re all rooted,

I know I’m here for a purpose

But they just want me to get suited.

Destiny will find its way to you,

Patience and a free mind

The only things that’ll get you through,

And love is all you have to do.

Words| The Guidelines

By Moses Gitonga

Hate yourself for all the things you are not and all the things you are.
Hate everyone else because they are not what you want them to be.

Words| HE…

By Esther Adwets

He has my papa’s name
And he vibes like a mama’s boy
The sound of him speak,is quite therapeutic to my mind.

I talk a lot,maybe too much,But around him, I’m lost for words.

My throat dries up,and it becomes a struggle to say the right words.

Words| The List

A few years ago I developed a habit. When things went wrong I would take a long walk and try to think things through. That used to help. Take time to look at everything objectively. People call it clearing your mind. Not sure that’s what I was doing, but usually after the walk I felt a lot better.

By Joseph Ngugi

I have lived most of my life thinking that romantic love is a delusion; a futile edge against the existential terror that is our own singularity and then I met her and that forced me to reexamine my convictions. Several months have gone by now and our conversations have gotten deeper and deeper with every passing minute. I have somewhat become an addict to her affection, her smile, her laughter, her ever radiant happy character and the charisma that comes with it. I have come to miss every aspect of her that a few years ago would have said with utmost certainty is a delusion.

Words: Paint me 1

By Moses Gitonga

My flaws have me convinced,
Am not worthy of this gift,
The audacity of me!!
To think that I can keep an angel satisfied with walking the ground like a regular being.
I’m a being regular in all sense of the word,

Words| Timeless

By Melvyn Noel

Tick tock I stare up at the clock,
In a silent whisper I hear it talk,
I wonder why they call it midnight,
Yet already morning is in sight,

Words| Dating: The modern game of thrones     

By Joseph Ngugi

Dating has in the modern day and age become a game. A game of thrones: a game characterized by who holds more power and consequently who holds the reigns in the relationship. The concept of power in these relationships is determined by who cares more or less. The more you care, the less power you have and the more power you give. It’s all about who cares more and who can show it less.

Words| Forgiveness

By Ndabari Kongu

You don’t forgive people because you are weak. You forgive people because you are strong enough to know that people make mistakes. Either way I think the hardest thing to do is to forgive. If it’s easy for you to forgive, bravo to you ♥. Forgiving even yourself proves hard at some point.
