Here's a selection of my poems:
January 10, 2020
What a terrible time it has been
Strong pouring rain we’ve hardly seen
This dry grass rarely ever turns green
The air in the sky is hardly clean.
I’ve never seen anything like this before
Thousands of homes destroyed like we are in a war
A billion animals dead, lying on...

Come and break new grounds,
Come and release new sounds,
Come with a strum in a peaceful way,
Your peace is always full every day.
You are a bright light in a dark place,
I'll run miles just to see Your face,
You are an inspiration behind my song,
You make all things new, You...
Like a cello my strings are tuned in perfect fifths,
Like a drum my sound resonates everlasting drum riffs,
Like a djembe with my variety of sounds I gather everyone in peace,
I Am His band.
Like a trumpet my vibration is buzzing in the ears of the heirs,
Like a flute I sal...
Opportunities lie before me,
I've changed my view,
The gift He laid within before time began, gives me the goods to win.
I see an open door
Others may run away from what I run to,
Aligning my purpose to His will,
I attack like a warrior, skill wars like a soldier,
In autumn when the leaves are red,
Our clocks go back before we get out of bed,
In spring when the tulips become red,
Our clocks gain an hour ahead.
I guess this is part of being an Aussie,
It doesn't matter that we never did this in Africa,
I wake up in the morning and drin...
The Reason for the Season!
What Christmas is really about!
Jesus is way better than Santa.
Santa lives at the North Pole.
JESUS is everywhere.
Santa rides in a sleigh.
JESUS rides on the wind and walks on the
Santa comes but once a year.
JESUS is an ever present help.
Show the world that you're so strong,
Make me proud of being an African,
No tap, just the journey, too long,
Survive, save, succeed yes we can.
You are the beauty of Mother Africa,
Our joy is through your strength,
Our extended family is in America,
Hello there it's been a little while,
It's so good to see you with a smile,
I thought I'd finally write to you,
And talk about what you used to do.
You saved money and bought a bike,
You disregarded your mum's dislike,
Seven years old brave, strong and smart,
Too young, stubb...
I've sunk so deep in that fertile soil,
Stem and leaves anointed with oil,
Pictures of memories frozen in time,
Take me to my roots one more time.
A strong person stands like a tree,
A tree's not just what people can see,
Water disappears unlike in the cup,
Every strong tree...
At one o’clock your mum and I were just sleeping,
Out of comfort she suddenly started screaming,
We quickly ran the bath then rang emergency,
Flew all the way to the hospital out of urgency.
We quickly rushed through the door,
We then used the first bed we saw,
The room was...
