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

First…
Hate yourself for all the things you are not and all the things you are.
Next…
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: 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| Perfect

By Felix Angaga

I forgot your name of late since they call you the late

The dances in the dark of two shadows was perfect
We knew no judge since left or right we made the body move
Memories built on a template, a written book of love
The tears of a man is only seen in her shadows
I buried her feelings on my pillow in the night, soaked and dumped

Words| This Season

By Charles Kinuthia

I see it,

In the clouds,

The swirling flow of dark grey ink,

Infesting the once pure white cotton,

Destroying the wondrous shapes I saw,

When my imagination freed itself from its chins,

Sitting on a green carpet of grass,

A book lay beside me,

That I had grown tired of reading,

Words| Peel Me Back

By Moses Gitonga

Peel me back,
What do you think you’ll find?

Will these bones be as flawless as make-up might make you believe my skin to be?
Or do these scars run bone deep?
I appreciate the sentiment but I am no King,
I am a slave whose amnesia made him oblivious of who, what he really is,
So please…

Words| To the girl in the music video

I hope you’re selfish with your charm
I pray we never lose this
In four minutes, you changed my dreams
A different kind of wanting
For the girl in the music video
