Heart on fire
Diana Nyambeki Apr 2020
When I least expected, you came along,
You found me, I found you,
The love of my life, in you love I found,
Igniting my heart, you set it ablaze
Love so pure, set my heart aflame
Deep in your heart, a home I found
My love, my everything, with you I'm complete
The love of my life, in you love I found

Beyond hope
Diana Nyambeki Apr 2020
And outa nowhere,  my eyes landed on it,
The beautiful flowers , flowers so perfect
The polychromatic flowers so rare, yet so pure,
Movin ' closer , marvelling at the gem
Rare gem, so pure, not tainted, not flawed
Ooh!The fragrance so blissful, so alluring
The pure nesh petals, so irresistible

But wait!, something strange, how could it be?,
On a rock?, makes no sense ,amidst thorns?
sum'n  real bizarre,sumn' so rare,
Oooh !the will to survive, to thrive, to blossom
Battling to survive, stay alive and blossom,
In the struggle, they became stronger ,
Became more  charming,more alluring,
What a lesson I learnt, to fight like the flowers,

Oooh !unproductive ground, you mean nothin'
When will there is, the victory I own
Failure I impede, the battle I conquer,
In the struggle,I survive, stronger I become
I'm invincible, a child of a warrior
Never givin' up, but onward marching
Failure I impede, the battle I conquer,

Yeah, I'm that stone, that lonely stone,
Thrown far away and isolated, just on its own
That ugly stone, that you dare not come near,
But really, can you blame me?,upbraid me?
When it is all on you, all your fault?

I once was an open book, candid, and sociable
Then taken advantage of, betrayed,bruised
I learnt my lesson, I'm better alone, stronger alone,
Fake friends, fake people, fake everybody,
Fake promises, love, and fake everythin'
tried to cope, got tired of betrayal,
Treaded alone, there peace I found,
Where peace I found, there I resided
Depending on myself,just countin' on myself

Used and betrayed , my lesson I learnt
Alone I survive, I got nothin' to lose
My peace I adore, Imma fight to keep it
Alone I survive, my heart I safeguard,
I'm better alone, coz alone, I found my peace

Before you judge me
Diana Nyambeki Apr 2020
Well, I know what y'all think,you think I'm feeble,
You think I'm weak and dumb,and damaged
Well you ain't wrong after all, I am damaged!
Wounded, marred beyond repair,yeah I'm destroyed
But you have no right, you can't just judge me,
Coz you know nothin', nothin' I've been thru'

All those lonely nights, in the darkest of the nights,
You know nothin',you don't know how it is
How that pillow is soaked, soaked in tears,
All the wails,you hear when I'm wailing,
No, I'm not crazy, I'm in pain. You don't get it,
I'm confused, crumbled into pieces
I'm just tryna fight on, tryin' to stay alive
I'm trynna figuring it out, to get to the bottom of it
I'm depressed,i'm off the chain, I'm going crazy

You see why my hair is unkempt, my clothes untidy,
My face pale, my skin peeli'n,
I dunno,what I'm livi'n for, I got nothing, no hope no friends, no family, no nothing,
You laugh ,and giggle whenever I'm passing by
Oooh she's pathetic, Oooh she's a ******
She's miserable, yes I'm miserable
Just label me, brand me names, call me crap,
And still, I won't give up on me, I'll keep tryin'
I'm tryna fix what I can, fix what's left
And just someday, on a beautiful day,
It'will all turn around, I'll reclaim my happiness
And I'll be whole again, just as it was before

— The End —
