The Lord is wonderful
He has done wonders for us
We don’t stress
We bless his holy name
We praise Him
With music and poetry
We dance to the beat
Our feet well founded
In Christ our Lord!
The Pillar and ground of truth
Eye Love God
The truth terrifies my human mind
Beyond the ties that bind...
Time stood still
And everything became blur
I was absent but stood I right there
Lost in deep thought,
Contemplating how
Dad left first
And then you followed
A candle blown upon by the wind
Our supplication ignored
A future denied and tears shed
Dreams shuttered by a boulder of sorrow
and a flower wilting, slowly dying
Uprooted and left to dry
Dyeing our hearts with depression...
Relentless thoughts creeping in my head
Like maggots crawling on a decaying carcass
If pain was a color what would it be?
When soaked would it fade
Like darkness every dawn.

Give me your love
I don't trust your lust.
Gentle like a dove
But fast like an Indian arrow
Sweeping me off my feet
Cutting deep into my bone marrow
First, it was my eyes
Now it’s my thighs and my sighs.


Take my love
Fill your empty heart
Give me your heart
I'll give you my soul
Hold my cold dead hand
And save me from the fall
I’ll be inside you
The day
Lust morphs into Love.
What would you do?
If you had a thousand years to live?
A thousand years of peace?
A thousand years of equity?
I have heard of a time like that ahead!
When mortality puts on immortality
And immorality will be extinct.
Without death or sickness to fear!
When I speak I create
Even without a magic wand
When I think I create
And my environment
Thinks like I think
Magic is an illusion
But power is real
And it is not in your hands
But in your mouth
One Word changed my life
Starting with my mind
Which is a powerful biological machine
That can either instruct
Or self-destruct
If overloaded with wrong instructions.
A man utters
Out of the abundance of the heart
And as he imagines so is he
Man is a thought
And thoughts are spirits
They work like cells
Unobserved yet effective
Possess your mind
And inculcate your heart
If you don’t
They will
When they entertain your mind with their demonic fantasies…
Words are powerful. Silence is golden, and speaking is silver.
Emerging and engaging
Merging and integrating
I see my Africa
Rising as the sun
After a seemingly endless night

Propelled by the rising sun
I glimpse the eclipse in the horizon
Compelled by the morning songs of the African birds
I spread my wings ready to fly like an eagle
Dark clouds dissipating giving way to light
Just as I was anticipating it’s time to fly
To freely fly in the blue sky
Without treacherous clouds threatening my graceful flight

Hovering in the heavens
Visualizing all inhabitants
Working towards one goal
As I play my spirit given role

Happy and at peace
I sing the African song
You have blessed the sun
Now in light, I swim
You have reduced the darkness
Now my light prevails

Development is imminent
Upon the African Continent
Africa is on the verge of a tremendous economic transformation and all Africans should get hungry because an economic boom is imminent over the African continent.
My heart,
When I see the word love
You the first thing that comes into my head
Your beauty has made me blind
Like the light that blinded Saul
Any prince would fall for such beauty,
And the gods of men would trip over such beauty
Deserving truest fealty

I can gaze at your pretty face for countless hours
Fathoming you better than all the flowers
In this Garden, I'd buy only you
To keep your seeds
So that I can have more pretty flowers
In my garden...
If the world was ours
We would be King and Queen
And if the sky was ours
I'd be the sun
You the full moon
With our kids as the stars
Decorating our nights
In the absence of light
If we didn't die
We wouldn't care
About ceasing the moment
Making every second count
Till we out.

You're so tender and  jovial as December
When they dance like in the rain without thunder...
The air around you has a pleasing scent
One would think you're a blossoming lavender
With a well structured temple designed for summer
And a smile worth a thousand miles

Sometimes ...
Sometimes you **** my vibe
And I think you ain't my type
But Where is my type
In this world full of stereotypes
Followers and not leaders
Path destroyers instead of path finders.
A world that choses to believe in nothing
Instead of being humble before the One thing
That even time can not change?
They watch all wondrous designs
And strong signs that can be heard in all languages.
I want you
I need you to thirst for me
Like water
Drink me to the last drop
I want you
To crave me like a cigarette
And turn me on
Till you smoke me up
To the stub
Leaving you
Feeling numb
And turn to me
Like a *****
At night
Or a pillow
You hold so tight
When cold and incomplete
Let me perfect you
Like a Yin to a Yang
For every chalice
Must have a blade
I'm your blade
You're my  chalice
Our Progenies
Will be rebellious
Cause we make
An imperfect
Bonnie and Clyde
But a perfect
Amber & Myk
Lust is a form of energy I'm still exploring. God ave me addictions, obsessions and thorns in my flesh. But all this was to make me what the world looks for. I are Invictus Elfuric
We Are
Of The
We are images/selfies of the invisible God!
All the chaos in our tiny world
Is a product
Of our Emotions gone wrong
An Outer Manifestation
Of the hate inside the hurt
of the Heart!

All the pain,
hate and suffering
In this fading world
Is just an outburst
Of what lies
The bar less prison
Of a human mind!
The sum of your thoughts Adds up to you Peace inside will bring peace to the world
Why do you love me so much
Every night you visit
Sleepless you leave me
Till the morning birds sing
As the darkness fades
I am
But, maybe
A prisoner
Of my own Mind.

My depression is,
Maybe, a product of demonic oppression.
My incarceration is,
Maybe, a product of my isolation
What has isolated me
Feasts on me day and night.
What has incarcerated me
Feeds on my fears and doubt.
My confusion is a product of spiritual illusion.
My delusion is a product of my contagious infection.

I see what nobody sees
I hear what nobody hears
I know what nobody knows
Because it all passes when I am alone
Alone in the darkness
When light is scarce

I am afraid of the nights
Especially that time of the night
The time when they switch off the lights
They arrive to give me a fright

I try to sleep
But slumbers flees
I try to pray
But no words come out

What should I do
To make it through?

I am,
But a slave
To the unseen...
We all have our issues hidden in the dungeons of our minds. Some numb these issues by drugs and alcohol. I numb mine through the words I bleed.
There is often less danger in the things we fear than in the things we desire. - John C. Collins
I want to be a man above all men
So I will be beneath them all
Serving and giving
Loving and forgiving
Saving and leading
On the way
To God’s day
Of Reckoning.
I am becoming
What he made me
For all to see
Noticing the little things
Ignored by many
If you observe
You’ll see
The unseen
If you listen
You will hear
His whispers in nature
God does little
He speaks much
What he says becomes
What he imagines he loves
What he loves is a part of him
He loved us
Thought us
Spoke us
Bought us
There is no greater Love than Him.
Holy Ghost!
I am a creativist
Words are keys I play when my guitar is not weeping.
I am a wordsmith
Words are friends I play with when my people are sleeping.

The depth of my thoughts is beyond human comprehension.
I am more than a poet.
I am that, I am.
Invictus Elfurique the Son Of Man
Grant me strength
To pass through this valley
My youth evaporates
In decades lost
Trying to erase
Scars of folly
Fleshly glory
The vanity of all vanities 
My dead heart
My candid mind
And make me Regurgitate
The devils inside
My mind stops
It breaks
My heart races
It crushes
By my reality
Which seems a tragedy...

Like a flower
I am wilting
Like water
I am evaporating
Like words written in ink
I am slowly fading
My sand grains wasting
And my time ending, down counting
With my heart pounding
Leading me to the very start!
I bereave
Yes, I bereave
Yet I believe
That I can receive.
Everything in Life I deserve...
Promises are easy to make just as they are easy to break.
Fear not brethren
Salvation is a sunset away.
Troubled and perplexed we are
But let not our courage sway.
The night will come and
It will not be a time to pray!
The night will arrive and it will be a time to fight!
Some lines from my incoming movie.
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
If we continue this way, the future is bleak.
Be ye drunk with the spirit
Here we are drunk with whiskey.
Sensuality burning hot even in sleep
With corrupt minds open to sin
She walks in and contaminates
With venomous eggs hatching death…
I wish the flesh couldn't inspire me to lust and boast myself when high or drunk.
Fear kept
Makes one inept
It's just an illusion

Feelings are fleeting like shadows
They vanish without trace
Don't be held down by them...
I am glorified the Lord has found a home in me,
He has found a secret place in my heart.
I am sanctified to know that I am his hiding place,
We have relentless intimacy inside my pure heart.

Heaven is guaranteed because nothing can separate us from his love.
I am an immortal soul trapped inside this dying flesh
I can’t wait to vacate this limiter.

I am glad I have found a home in the Lord
He is my secret place full of sufficient grace
Behold I am safe inside his tight embrace.
We are God's temple and God is our temple.
Gangsters got few friends and more fiends.

Such is the nature of life.

It's rare for a gangster to find someone to confide in.

In the streets, no place for confidence.

Not a trace of the rare innocence.

''Innocence is nonsense, in the streets''

Alliances forged on territorial expedience.

Trust will give you a deadly experience

I survived one madly in all my existence

Only vagabonds and tyrants not saints

Make it here

You watch my back

I watch yours

Till comes time to shoot you in the back

Talk about family....

Your family is the one who takes the bullet for you.

Either dead or wounded alive trust such.

Owe nothing to none and walk without fear.

No justice from the police

Just another authorized gang of enemies

Who don't hesitate to shoot.

So we shoot before they do.

Get caught, if you lucky in prison you will rot.

If not, they will give the electric chair

Life is only fair

Only serves you what you deserve

Pull the trigger first or face the grim ripper first

Death is an invited guest

It's what we use to live

What we all shall use to leave

Live by the bullet

'Shall die by the bullet

Just staying alive today

Only to die someday

My life feeds on blood

My tears are wiped by death

My fears are calmed by death

At the end it will be my death

I won't miss the earth

But I will miss the streets

Guns and ammunition

My way of retribution

In the face of intimidation

Those who intrude can end up dead

In case you didn't know

We ain't rude just avoiding the death bed

It's an insatiable thirst for power

Will do anything to quench it.

If you shoot a man

Make sure he is dead

Or he will return

Saying he rose from the dead

Shoot him in the head

Between the eyes.

To seal his fate

Avoid the deadly surprise.

To be cont'd...
An old poem of mine. Thought I should share it here.
Time has eroded my perception
Life has marred my perfection
For when I was young I could believe
Easily dreaming big
My mind conceiving in innocence
Now I am scarred and scared
Fed up of life's nonsense

As a boy
I  never wanted to grow up
For life had shown me
There is little joy for the old...
For the young are ever frolicking
Then life is still finger licking good!

If time could be reversed
I'd have reversed it to the days
I was still young
For when I was young life was more fun
I looked at life through simple optimistic eyes
And I wasn't concerned about anything
But awestruck by everything
The swimming fish in a pond
The scent of summer after a drizzle
And the time mom cam back from work with candy

I ate when I felt hungry
Slept when I felt tired
Cried when upset
And laughed when tickled

Every experience was as an adventure
And life it self was a wonder
Now I am always agitated
Completing cycles of motion for the sake of it

I have made innocent mistakes
That turned into scary skeletons in my closet
I have weaned addictions that now reign over me
I now have stubborn scars
That won't fade with time
But seem to accumulate more

Some say we never grow
We are still the same children
Now trapped in adult bodies
But I prefer being an adult
In a child's body
For life is usually bliss
The hate is unbelievable
It taints the walls like blood stains
If love is red and adorable
What paint is hate
For it stains
Our lovely canvass
The hate is visible
Crawling on my skin
Like insects
It's *******
The last drop of love I had.
Hate is a product of people, if we love the world will be better. Hate makes good bad and love makes evil good. It starts with you.
I will not die for you,
I will **** for you.
I will not be shy
With you,
I will shine
For  you
I will fight
Till my foe dies.

For what is love
But you and me?
Without me
You're incomplete!
Even if you *******
You will never compensate
The way you feel when it's me.
Insatiable desire consuming like fire
Burning your temple as you beg
me to come and cool you off..
It's an old school thing, to die for love. True lovers **** for the ones they can't live without.
It's exactly one year
Since you left
This tiring cold earth
Your death
Gave birth to something deep
A wound, now a scar
I watch and feel everynight
A stubborn scar
That deepens with time
Instead of fading
Today this time
I was in a bus
Coming to your funeral
Disappointed like a dog without a bone
And an actor without a home
It's exactly 366 days since your death
Mordecai Amos Suga Masimbira
Died at nineteen before he grabbed
What he was working for
The Nobel piece prize in physics and chemistry
Even in your death
You're unconquered
And I will make you famous
Because you were denied
A long life
Which you deserved
Because to all you were perfect.
A perfect beacon of light
Through the family's dark night.
Words will never cover your void
And only when we meet again will I rejoice.
You live in my dreams
In my art
And in my heart
Which is still moaning like a dove
Solely standing on a thorny branch
Weeping sorely
With burning hope and love
He was my lil brother, i miss him, i love him and i don't why death took him away...
Immortal I Stand
Nascent and nebulous
Victorious indeed
Invincible I sit
Christian till the end
Trampling scorpions and serpents
Undiluted and unadulterated
Sanctified and Spirit filled

Electricity runs in my veins
Levitating me into a state of perpetual bliss
Fire is in my bones
Unquenchable it propels me as it burns
Renovated and elevated I'm innovative
Ignited and United I stand to motivate
Children and their parents that they may be activated...
Acrostic poetry is great.
You can't fail without trying
And you can't soar without flying
You can speak without thinking
And You can't sleep with your eyes wide open.
You can talk while sleeping
And Sleep walk while talking
To the unseen
You can look without seeing
And You can't speak without a tongue
But you can communicate without a mouth
And you can't understand without knowledge
Though you can be wise before your old age
And can't lose if you chose not to
For you can't chose your family
But you can chose to be with the ones you love
You can be heard without a voice
And you can't be a god without a choice
For you can refuse to lose
And cease to accuse
It's your own decision
To live or die
To run of fly
To laugh or cry
To do or to try
I was inspired by coeur
Words are meaningless
and forgettable
Feelings are fleeting
and unreliable
Presents get old and worn out
People change
from friends to strangers
And change is inevitable
Nothing remains the same
Letting go means you're stronger than you think.
I was once
Like a tadpole
I saw nothing
And heard nothing
I had a sole goal
I needed to reach the ****
Before all of them
Only the first one
Could Become
A Man.
I can tell
This tale today
I am alive!
Once a victor
Always a victor
If you made it
To the ****
Let nothing
Bring you down
That victory
Made you!
A nation that keeps wasting time...
Silence is a crime.
Speaking out never costs a dime...

"How can We speak when we have no voice?
How can We chose when we have no choice?
We just not talkative but we are creative
Our work will not remain underground forever!!!"

We the people know what we want, let us be...
For all these policies and the politics never seem to benefit us.
The government has become a milestone,
A heavy milestone sealing tight our way out.
It's torment,
How long shall we run away from home looking for ways to be?
It's a riddle about a nation once known as Ophir. This nation has people in every part of the world, they are scattered like Jews.
There is nothing inside you
You're inside this!
This over-controlling,
Hard to control suit...
Abide inside God
And let not the outside
Control the inside

Most Simpletons
Expose the inside
Destroying the mind
Impaired by the outside
Not recalling...
What's seen is passing
& what's unseen sustains what's seen

I found myself
Once I ceased from my own wisdom
And I am certain
Those who doubt will never make it out
Stay determined as a termite
And create something sweeter than honey!
This is my truth and I share it cuz there are others like me out there.
If loving you makes me insane
Then I never wanna be sane
If loving you makes me wrong
Then I never wanna be right

I lost myself the day I found you
And I hope I stay lost in you
I doubt you love me like I love you
But I don't mind at all
Love isn't fragile,
Hearts are.
Comment with Love in your language, please.
Love hurts and Pain teaches
Fire burns and the Wind blows
Love grows and Life glows
It shines like Light showing you Love isn’t blind
But soul kind it ignores all your imperfections
Because love doesn’t mind
It binds, it unites
It makes one out of two
It perfects yet it also can infect your heart
It enslaves, But in a good way.
Falling in love is fooling your heart
Making it vulnerable
But growing in love
Is taking one step at a time
Not rushing to spill the seed
For it might **** your speed, and cut your steed
When you realize you need
Something you shouldn’t need
All you need is love, The Beatles sang
They just forgot to say
Unconditional love…
Love is what you make it
Love is as complicated as life.
Why is it painful to give birth
Why is it painful to give back
Death so sad yet it makes you
From whence you came.

Love is as complicated as life
Why is it blissful to take
Why is it blissful to break
Divorce so happy it hurts babies
As parents roam free once more

Love hurts and love binds
Life teaches and life strengthens
If love is no more
Life will cease to exist

Everything loves each other
Everything needs each other
The rose craves for the warmth of the sun
As the patched earth thirsts for the life filled rain
If dependency is abolished, love will fail.
If want is removed, businesses will fail.

He loves you because he wants something from you.
My eyes saw her
And my heart longed for her
And my lips wanted a taste
Of her seething venom
She was a cup
I didn’t want to pass
Without having a sip
That opened a flesh wound
Only she could nurse
Because it could never heal
And any one I’d ****
For her to be mine and mine alone.  

On the drags ov the black wine
Brood from African matured raw dark vines
Bitter sweet and sedating like ecstasy
She anesthetized me
Leaving me numb
To the wound she had inflicted
Upon my heart of flesh,
When I let my
Shield down
And left her sizzling arrow
Piercing my heart
Like a thorn for the holy one
Her arrow inoculated a venom
That enfeebled my trembling frame
As I bled love unafraid of bleeding to death!
I looked deeply Into Her dark eyes
My vision impaired,
High from the venom
And partial hemorrhage.
I said slowly
“What is love? Tell me please…”
She smiled and replied…

“I can’t tell you,
I can only show you
Cuz you have prayed.
Love is a tourniquet
To your heart a wound
I can nurse it for you
That’s why it hurts
If you are wounded
By someone without skill
Some wounds never heal
But fear not
For my love is not lethal
And leaving you might be fatal,
Words can never be love
Only actions can be
Thoughts are useless
If never said  or expressed
So don’t be afraid
I will nurse your wound
Because mine is deeper than yours”
Leave a comment please, follow and I will follow back and go through your poetry. Why not interact with fellow poets from foreign lands?
Thank you for your collaboration.
Love me like a wolf
Cheetahs are out there
Wolves are monogamous creatures, they inspired to write this piece about the remarkable fealty of the wild dogs.
I inspire
I won’t expire
I transcend
I won’t descend
Aspire to transpire
Make pages
In His Story
Make a name
That won’t fade
Through the ages
And paint your images
With full colors
That time can’t erase
Mount your fears
And they will take you far
Like a feather
Blown by the wind
Fear is the weakness
It cripples your mind
And weakens your faith
Many say we learn from our mistakes

But mine are more than I can take.

They spoke a joke that threatened my fragile heart.

When threatened I retaliate.

When I retaliate, they call me a racist..

How great is this feeling called hate...

I can't seem to make people enjoy my presence

Because I am never present, always absent lost in my mind.

How can I find true joy when I lack the confidence?

The confidence to show true defiance and a face so radiant.

All the questions I have are answered painfuly so I never ask.

All the pain within me is held prisoner by my strong heart,..

The smile on my face is just a good mask I wear hiding the devil inside.

The miles I run are cycles with no end, circles have no end.

Imagine reliving this pain, over and over again.

Afraid to tell any for none ever will understand.
Pain is master
Lord, you’re my air…  
When I need you, you’re always there.  
God, you’re my fear…  
I won’t be afraid for you always near.  
Oh my prince, you are fair!  
With you there is none they can compare.  
Your voice I want to hear.  
Clearly so that I know how to keep you near…

Invictus Elfuric
I love God cuz he loves me...
My fantasy damsel

My caring confidante

What do I do without the glow of your love to lead the way

What would I listen to without the sweet words you say

When I'm with you I don't want to go I just want to stay

I need you to know that your love makes my day

Without you I will be lost in the shadows of despair

I will be facing the deadly gallows breathing without air

The depth of your love leaves me with a flair

On the earth I stand with bare feet and think Love is fair

Through death I can defeat and thank you cause Life is fair

It's only people that are cold hearted, unkind and unfair

This world is cruel I know but true love is our fuel

I am careless and grateful because you make me feel well

Yeah they don't know what love is

Let's show them

Yeah they don't know how to love

Lets teach them

They will never love to see us love

I know them

But you and me have passed the test of time

We love like children and make love like teenagers

We are immovable and superbly adorable
An old poem I wrote for my imaginary girl friend, perfect people only exist in tales...
I am that I am
And I have none to blame if I end up lame
I am not the same
My transformation is persistent and I've won the game
I have conquered myself...

I am a creativist
Words are keys I play when my guitar is not weeping
I swim in ink as I think deep
Drinking on the brink of slumber and words keep me from sleeping

The depth of my thoughts is beyond human comprehension.
I am more than a poet.
If you take a journey in my mind you will get lost
I’m empowered to create so I don’t think like the rest!
Nobody knows you, even your parents don't know who you are. Go ahead surprise your self and the world around you. Up-rise and become what you really are.
You're my addiction,
My obsession,
My incarceration
And my escape...

If loving you
Makes me insane
I never wanna be sane.

I was born imperfect
So  that you perfect me
And I was born weak
So that you conquer me.

I can't live without you
Yet all this while
I was living without you...

What sorcery is more powerful than your love
If  your love was a weapon
It would have been an atomic bomb
If it was an element
It would have been water...

I have addicted myself to your love
Powerful than a spell
Upon which I tripped and fell
in a pit so deep and dark.

You the love I crave
And you the warmth I need in my grave
With you I feel safe
For what is Love but you?
All I have are pictures
Pictures torturous
Igniting memories
Memories of our past glories
Glories I can never relive.

Should I shed a tear
Cause I miss you?
Could you even hear
My cry to you?

We played and danced
We sat and discussed
We were friends in need of maths
And our parents saw arrogance
Together we couldn't win
But together we could play!

All I have are pictures
Wish I had contacts
You won't even know I am missing you
How will you know I am staring at you?
The good thing is you will never frown
How can you frown when you're emotionless?
Pictures and memories of my high school friends. Wish I had their contacts but I know we will meet again, here or on judgment day.
What if poetry is just an escape from loneliness?

What if most poets if not all are loners

Who find comfort in speaking with themselves?

These poems are feelings unheard

Sadness outweighing happiness
In his high vain glory
Awestruck when He enthroned Adam king over all...
The words stung like a venomous arrow
Completing the thick brew of hate stirred with shame.
Fallen he was, devious still he was
To plot his loft plot plot on El's soft spot

The Divine has concluded the story
And I feel sorry
For everyone born will suffer only to be made tougher
Through fire and Ice
The true sons of God will rise
Like before the era of technology
An era we embrace with eulogy...

An angel saw
And it cried woe
Upon the tiny earth
For he cometh In his wrath.
Every mistake I've made
It leaves a scar that burns everyday
I can steal you
And take you far beyond pain and misery...

I will bring you the gold in the sun
And the silver in the moon
Cause you flawless like a rose in full bloom
Inspired by a *****
Joy comes in the morning...
Or joy comes in the mourning?
While I'm drunk with my tears
Masking my candid fears.
Miles, I run never stopping
Asking none ever hoping.
Boy oh Boy, it's my story
Basking in misery.

As it is I barely sleep. (Weeping!!)
But staying awake weeping only to fall into a tortured sleep
I face it beyond control.
Sleeping is better than weeping and keeping dead memories.

But to me weeping is better than sleeping.
As soon as I slumber I start dreaming.
Let me not say the dream
It's my mine and mine alone.
When it'll be known.
I'll be long gone.
At least that's all I'm told
That I will not hold
On to this fading life till I'm old
Enough to make sense of it all.
My life will be short
And my sorrow so tall.
I think curled up in a ball.
Their arrows poisonous.

I fold myself
In case I start shaking more than I can bear.
I hold myself
My face to the ground knowing it's here.
I told myself
Embrace this, you are overcoming fear.
Mold yourself, I said.
Greatness is becoming what they revere.

Sell your soul and have lies to tell.
Hell awaits such who paly with those who fell.
Well, you can be washed in the Well of blood and be well.
Now you silent
and cold like a corpse
You've vanished into the dark
like a thief in the night
Breaking each
and every promise
Robbing me
of my sleep at night
