I’ll Thank My Lucky Stars At Night

And there was a time I was bitter
A time where all this could have been yours
But you were busy trying to play me. My lord saved me from all your bullets. I’d have dreams warning me about the reality

Today is the day I count all my blessings
Running round town trying to make me feel sour
Stop running save yourself the hours
You most definitely played yourself

The Dirt Under Your Rug

Everyday is a new day to fight
We are gathering to take what is ours
The road to freedom is in unity

And so brothers and sisters let’s not see colour
Look beyond the rays and match forward with integrity

Burning down gates of excellcious egoism

You Scream I want it all
I Scream this is not all
Not enough to undo the dids
The costs are higher than you claim
You take take take and give back none

Every day I wake up to a globalized world

But you swept the bills under the rug
Those third world countries you created
Can they be first again?

The souls of my ancestors
They’ll keep jumping into new flesh
They’ll keep demanding royal crest
We unit through freedom or we unit after war

Turning Tables

Dear Love,

I See you are generous to many

Just not to one

Its trending notoriously, how you hit the weak harder and the strong lesser.

I accept you are some type of common good I struggle to obtain

The price is high after tasting freedom

Female empowerment comes with an opportunity cost, the world is yet to encounter

And so the blame is not on you Love

The more I feel empowered

the longer is my list

I won’t bother chasing you

Instead I’ll sit right here

I’ll wait for you to choose me

I’ll watch how you stumble and fall

I’ll turn the tables around

You’d think I’m bitter by now

But I’m soft and sweet and unique

Catch me if you can..

@loveeiriny

You Better Run

 

Standing eye to eye but you refuse to see me

Is there no room for us both, Tell me?

Cause each time I get louder

you go silent.

Sworn to you countless times, my success could never deminish yours

I tried bringing back the spark, you know?

Thrill, Notion, Seductivity .. Innumerable efforts all futile

What a shame my physique comes with my mind

What a shame integrity is here to stay

Cause when I finally found my voice

you disappear

Walking on Egg Shells

Days after the setbacks, the Bruce’s, the thickness in the airs

Positivity becomes a choice

Life is a choice.

And If you’ve ever had to

Set foot outside your comfort zone

Then you know this;

Egg shells don’t break your bones

You will carry your skin like elaborated embroidery.

Soul congealed, indurated, woke

And apted you rise

I rest my case
