This is where the mankind will return to....

Vibes of victory

Over vice brutality & treachery

Over exploitation, destruction and treachery.

Waves of hope

To tide over disasters and diseases

To tide over penury and prejudice

To tide over oppression and depression.

Beaming smiles, Radiant faces

Thoughtful eyes and able bodies

Unbreakable spirit to keep fighting

The internal and external enemies.

One finds all of these here – Africa,

This is where the mankind came from

And this is where the mankind will return to.

I hate the Twilight

The tantalizing purposelessness
The guilt inducing vacuum
Sound of piercing chats, confusing piety
Desperate Calling out to a misunderstood deity
Purple pink sky 
The golden yellow lights of bulbs
Tug of war between elevation and elation
Closure of one more episode of countless lives
Fear of safe return
And anxiety like that of roosting birds
Forewarning of the darkness to come
Aching longing for the distant joy
Vacillating loyalties
Rising royalties for the people who tread the uncharted
Neither the light to understand nor the darkness to hide, my sins
I hate the twilight,
whenever I get the time to think
whenever I get the liberty to be myself
I hate the twilight.
