Regrets.
Emanzi Ian Jun 2023
Heart aches but regardless we move
No one to be strong for this body that seems to be giving up but self.
Even the littlest things annoy the **** out of me
Smiling faces disgust me.
Regrets about the past haunt me
Only had I known earlier
Reality and fantasy have no relation at all* .

Options
Emanzi Ian Sep 2022
My heart aches for you like I'd lose me if I lost you
But I've got options
It ain't self-validation but I know am wanted and needed
East or west,am shown love
But still,even with your mediocre treatment,
I always yearn for your attention and affection
Mistreat me all you want
Drag me through the mud
But be sure that if I ever decide to leave,
It'll be forever
Because I've got options

I've got options
Your embrace ain't the warmest
Your kisses ain't the softest
You don't even love the most and your face ain't the fairest of them all
Surely,one day,your pride shall fall
And it'll be your turn to call
Mistreat all you wish

Time Heals
Emanzi Ian Sep 2022
Time heals all pain but some pain takes quite long to even subside
For so long,my heart for your affection  has ached
This pain in my soul,not even for a minute has it disappeared
Thoughts about the good times we had when things were still fine make the misery that lies deep within my soul awake
Broken promises
Broken dreams
But still,
Am hopeful
After all,nothing lasts forever
Can't help it but I have to let you go
For my peace,
I free memories of what was us.

Honey jjukila nti gw'abasiinga
Njagala onsuubizenga nti toli ndekka

Emanzi Ian Mar 2022
Give me a me
I need me a me
A me that'll love me like I love
A me that'll love me how I love to love
A me that'll make me experience how my love feels
I have trust issues,
With this me,I won't be in constant fear of disappointment from my lover
Give me a me
Because I know me got me with no exaggerated expectations and strings attached
Love me like me would love me
Love Me like me loves.

Chandelier
Emanzi Ian Feb 2022
My baby's beauty makes her shine brighter than a chandelier
Like sparkling water,her eyes so clear
Her kind is quite rare,
I mean...she glows in the dark !!
In the making,her creator was quite fair
For beauty,the creator gifted her quite a share
Many a time when she enters a room,she attracts attention effortlessly
Sometimes,this gets her under tension
But still,she shines through every season
And I love how her character transcends her beauty
The way she interacts with everyone she meets,further makes her such a rarity
She's royalty
Her heart is of gold
Despite the world being so cold
Such a go-getter,attitude so bold
My baby's beauty makes her shine brighter than a chandelier

My baby's beauty makes her shine brighter than a chandelier
Come baby,
Come be me near
Come be with me,
Am glad you finally made it here
With you by my side,I have no fear
When we are apart,my thoughts are so tangled,but with by my side,they get so clear
Assure me that you'll never leave,whisper it in my ear
Just because of how you make me feel
Even when you travel far and wide
Provided you'll come back right to me,all the waiting,
Am ready to bear
Come on now, let's get bare
I wanna kiss you there 😉
It's been a while and oh,btw,I love the smell if your hair
I'll forever be yours,no truth or dare
The top secret is your care
And always remember...you,with nobody I don't and never will wanna share
My baby's beauty makes her shine brighter than a chandelier.

Every Heartbreak
Emanzi Ian Feb 2022
Hearts break and it surely hurts when they do
Constant feelings of regret
So many unfulfilled wishes
Wishes for an immediate remedy
Even when the heart is not ready
Not ready to love again
But it hurts when the heart breaks
And the wishes are all about wishing for new love
New love to soothe the fresh wounds
New love to cover the scars
Scars from the past disappointments
But because of the newly lost love,
Missed appointments,
Rejected calls and non-replied texts.
Less hours of work and increased time of not being productive
Reduced creativity and more feeling of loneliness
All because of what you once had but can't now dare to wish for

When the heart breaks,it surely hearts
And it takes a brave one to survive
We've heard many stories of them that din't manage
Suicidal thoughts that were fulfilled
Overdoses that were self-administered
And former lovers that were sacrificed
All because of lost love
I wish to belong in a world where we would find our love once and for all
With no worries about disappointment or heartbreak
No worry of finding your only ONE with your so-called best-friend
All this because I love love and love to be loved back
But every heartbreak makes it hard to love again
Fear to love again

Mutual Love
Emanzi Ian Feb 2022
When I was only hoping for love to find me,
You showed up and though I was attracted,
I didn't really express my interest
But I was really considering it
Only the fear of rejection held me back
Some time went by and I still had you under my watch
I didn't rush,for I didn't wanna crash
But as time elapsed,your presence started to give my blood some rush every time I saw you
Your laughters and giggles tickled me in ways I can hardly express
Nature has its way of doing things,
I later realized that the the interest was mutual
I risked it all and found a way of accessing your contact and shot for gold

I still remember how nervous I was the first time we talked face to face
I still remember how relaxed it made me feel when I first held your hand
The warmth of our first hug still lingers around my soul
The sweetness of our first kiss and the excitment that it came with shall surely forever be in my memory
I still remember how I was hesitant about saying "it"
Saying it that "I love you"
For I wanted to first be sure that I was gonna hand my fragile heart to the right person
Hearts do break and when they do,it surely hurts
I have experienced this hurt before and it was almost fatal
I got back and am now extra cautious about whom am gonna trust with its custody
We got to know each other more and I started to believe that you were something good for me,
Like a magical remedy
At this point,I knew I was ready
Ready to ride with you till wherever fate would lead us
Love is real

Pain
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
Heart aching,
Blood leaking
The sad music playing in it,so loud
But still,am strong
And for this,am so proud
It feels like the world is against me
The things I love make no sense
Melancholy sorrounds my presence
Heavy heart,fatigued mind
To the little pleasures of life,am blind
The bad memories I can't live behind
They dominate my troubled mind
Nothing excites me,life seems so plain
All because this pain keeps flooding in
Like rainwater downhills,
It pours
One depressing thought flashes and it lingers around for hours

Weakness for Beauty
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
See how her face glows,
Like a star in the dark
Her smile flashes even with the lights out
Her dental,so well-formed
Whiter than a blank sheet of paper
She's a star
See how her full lips curve to bring out that bright smile
When she moves,
Oh, when she moves...!!
Hearts pound faster when she moves
See how her hips sway left and right when she moves
Ninety degrees (90°),ninety degrees (90°)
Necks turn when she moves
So innocent,her face looks
But still,when she moves...!!
Necks turn when she moves
Her voice,so sweet like the classic blues
Like a sweet-sweet Melody in mind it echoes
I have a long-held weakness for beauty,
And yes,
For her,am ready to offer my all
Oh, how I anxiously await her midnight call
My friends and family,my love for her is known to all

Weakness for beauty
See how she paces up the hill...
Up the hill,she races faster than a stallion
Her sound so quiet like a thief in the night
Her curves,so well-placed
Obviously, the intention of her maker was perfection
She is a Picasso
A Picasso that moves
When she moves,many wish they could have a hold of her
Many wish they could own her
But she comes at a price,a price quite pricey
So pricey that their wish to own her remains only a dream
A dream they don't soon hope to fulfill
And oh yes,the satisfaction of knowing that she's mine...
I haven't gotten used to
When I step on that pedal,trying to reach for the limit...
It still makes my blood rush
Yes,I admit,
I have a weakness for beauty

Kings and Queens
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
Kings are born Kings
Princes and princesses are born this way
The king selects the queen from whatever status and elevates her to the position
Mere attraction can turn the daughter of a local fisherman to a royal
From grass to Grace
Rags to riches
The lion cannot dine with hyenas
The eagle can't flock with the ravens
Haves and have nots
You can't have what's not yours
Mind your interactions and connections
Watch who you keep close
Some of them are wolves in sheep's clothes
They say your network is your networth
What's the worth of your network?!
Watch them closely,some of them in the network won't work
They are just work,so whack
Don't lose your focus,stay woke
The rich man just won't go broke
The poor man just won't get any richer
It's the aim of the system
Am only saying a word to a wise one,am no preacher
And am no teacher

Dead Conscience
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
I fear no evil
I see no evil
I hear no evil
****** is just a word
Family is overrated
Infact,it makes no sense
Whether I wish to be gay or bisexual,
It's upon me, after all it's my life
Culture is just a fallacy
I can be all I wish to be
Man is a free creation
Man is made with will and freedom
Age is just a number
The heart wants what it wants

People Be
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
People be,
People be talking I'll about you behind your back but in your face they are smiling
They want you dead but you're vibing
Losses and losses,for you,they are wishing
But when you are winning,in your face,they are jubilating
Meanwhile,deep down,they are dieing
They wish you could be sinking
Evil and envy are relatives
In reality,all they wish for you is negatives
Fake smiles and fake hugs
Pretence,faking and acting
To their cold hearts, your wins are hurting
They don't really love you,they just be acting
People be faking
Fake-loving
People be evil,acting saintly
Yet innocently,we give out our love to them so insanely
People be so undeserving, yet acting so entitled
People be wolves in sheep's clothing
Loyalty is rare
Anytime, the wolves might devour you,beware
Closely watch when you offer your everything
People be fake-loving

People be,
People be hurting
Their hearts are bruised,
They are bleeding
Yet for their love, sometimes we are pleading
You can't give what you don't have
Relate with such a human and it's from such a hurt heart, they'll pick something like love to share with you
We give what we have
Hurt people,hurt people
Let's all learn to share some love
The world is gradually being deprived of love
We need more love
War here,war over there
People be hurting
Let's share some love
The world needs more love
I love love and love to be loved,
But with whom am I gonna enjoy this love?!
Yet the world is gradually but steadily being deprived of love!!

People be,
People be so hopeless
Their troubles are countless
The prayers for their needs to the Almighty are also countless
But still,they don't feel blessed
Some still feel cursed
No Wonder,they act so reckless
Her body,to her is a shop
To him, his body is made out of metal
They both use their bodies for survival
They need revival
But with the way they are entrenched in their vices,only divine intervention will be their redemption
Their lifestyle so dire,all because of their life condition

People be wishing
For a change of life they be wishing
People be.

The Pangs of Poverty
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
The pain of being in pain and then you land into trouble
They slept on empty stomachs,and the next day,the son is arrested and locked up
He has been caught up in this,all in pursuit for a meal for himself and maybe some remainder to spare for home
The mother has no other source of income apart from doing small odd jobs on the village
The small wages she earns can hardly afford her all the basics
But despite that,she still has to take care of the family
And now she has to spare all of it to bail him out
And his siblings will have to skip the day's meals
The father left them,for he felt they were too much of a responsibility
And now the family situation is a calamity.

This other one drinks to numb her pain
The 'morning dose' kick-starts the day and she goes on through it
She sells her body to fend for the basics
Sometimes,she does it to just get a little something to quench her unquenchable yearning for the drink
But many a time, it's to fend for her 2 kids, whose fathers she's not aware of
Today,she just found out that she's *** positive

Concrete Flower
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
I am that flower that sprouted through concrete and blossomed
My attitude is strong like for a Shaka Zulu warrior
My heart repels fear
Demeanour of a beast
Like fine gold,I triumphed through the furnace
Like ice,my words chill flames of hell fire
Am a conquerer,through all trials and tribulations,I'll sail,only to rise higher
I was made for greatness,no matter the setbacks,I won't give up
I won't tire
At my final destination,I long to arrive
The throne of success,I must achieve
It's within reach,so I believe

I am that flower that sprouted through concrete and blossomed
Life is a journey of constant lessons, this,I have fathomed
Every setback is a comeback,I won't hold back
Hit me,kick me,with a herd of stallions, trample upon me,but still,I will rise
And still,a new life lesson,I'll realise
When I finally begin winning,the minds of doubters,I'll paralyze
Throw lemons at me,and out of them,I'll make lemonade
Negative energies,I blast like a grenade
With impunity,soil my reputation
But am a rare creation
And my gifts,my maker made with precision
Heart of stone,no,I won't be hurt
For,even then,my share remains clear-cut
Am cut from from a special cloth, uniqueness is what my designer intended
With the average,my breed can't be blended
And all this,an average mind can't comprehend

I am that flower that sprouted through concrete and blossomed
Concrete flower
That flower that sprouted through concrete

POET
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
We all are uniquely gifted with talents,mine manifests in words
I can craft words to slit a throat like a sword
Well-thought out,my words can make milk go sour
I can craft words to startle a bear our of hibernation
My words can dance in the air
My words can levitate
I do not need to imitate
For,this am blessed with, it's in my stitching
It came with no teaching
My words shall surely place me at table with Kings and queens
Princes and princesses
Royalty,Nobel and the clergy
My words can shift moods like a switch
Nun to a *****
Sombre to sad,sad to hyper
My words can bite like a viper
By the power of the toungue,I can repair and restore burnt bridges
And from then on, they'll last for ages
Still,by the power of the toungue,no need for keys,
I can free caged birds from their cages
For sworn enemies,I can turn pages
And from then on, they'll shake hands and share hugs for ages

Shattered
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
Right from the start,
You received the news with rejection
And that hurt me to the bone
When I shed those tears, I knew that my baby wouldn't be born
When you finally revealed that it was already done,
I felt my heart sink
But still,I wanted to be with you
Even when I was weighing the truth of all you had previously told me
I was blinded and didn't wish to have my sight restored
For,your charm had put me under a spell

New Love
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
Maybe we are meant to be
Maybe we are just messing around
with each other and this will be nomore before the new day comes
I feel I want to be with you,but my fears keep bringing up doubts in my mind
I was in a kind of comfortable state before I met you,with my singleness
You came through and revived my heart and gave me all this excitment
I think of pulling back abit just to rethink all what we are experiencing together
Just a few days without a call or text and it makes you feel like maybe am gone
Yet within those few days,you are constantly on my mind
I am weighing in on all the options and hoping that this only gets better
How I wish I could just find the perfect words to exactly express what I feel for you and how I feel about the way you make me feel loved
I kinda doubt your loyalty over a reason I don't even have yet I think you are easy to trust
But all I know and am sure about is that am ready to be with you through whatever ups and downs
This what we are willing to build with each other is something am ready to see to it that it blossoms

MUTILATED
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
Initially designed with intention for perfection,
She was formed to fit her purpose
In the dark...to be the shining star,lighting the way
For impunity,to see no way
To escape through no crack and slide through to anywhere
There would be no way
But as time is a defining factor...
By the father,she was ***** and defiled
Her dignity and integrity left soiled
First,it was the term limit removal
And some time later,the Age limit
And now,her truth holds no water
She was left discredited
When she opens her mouth to speak,she maintains no eye contact
She looks left and right as if looking for validation to push her on
Her worth was dumped in the trash
And sadly,only with a few sums of cash
A few that tried to rise up for her were harshly silenced
So costly it was,some lives were lost

Inside Of Me
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
The inside of me screams on top of its voice when you present yourself in my presence
Your presence in my presence makes a lot of sensible  sense
You for me,us together,joy is the essence
Your presence in mine makes my heart somersault
You excite the inside of me
You surely are the one for me
I can't exchange it for anything,how you've always made me feel
Every time spent with you,at the end of it all,happiness is the result
For me,you are such a ****,
And a big deal
My dear one,you are a healer,all my worries you heal
All I need is for you to of my heart,have a feel
And will be well,this I can tell

Fine Whisky
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
Fine like a 12-time distilled whisky
Skin silky
Leaving her is risky
The grace in her walk is like for a queen
In my mind,the thought of leaving her has never been
She never lets me down,she's my sure win
We are warned to never kiss and tell
But I can surely reveal that I've been kissed by an angel
Time freezes when she holds my hand
When she and I caress...it's ecstacy
Her body,so ****
She lights a fire in me
A fire so strong,a fire only her romance can calm down
I love listening to her heart race
Her heart pounds faster when our bodies meet
Our hearts have a way of communicating to each other
Mine too experiences higher pulse when she gets close
When she whispers in my ear,I feel the urge rise
She always guides my hands to all the places necessary
What to do next,for is never to worry about
She loves taking the lead
She's a natural leader,a born-leader
Through all the edges,she guides me
I love how she takes charge
Many a time,I freely let her dominate
Afterall,she's a natural leader

The Marginalized
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
In some cases,we live like animals
We share water sources with cows and goats
Even accommodation in other instances
The schools our children attend are the worst
They hardly achieve any form of formal education
While theirs attain world-class best
We toil the hardest
But still,earn the least
It is said that East or West,home is best...
But how can I appreciate this,yet in my home,I feel lost?!
From the world,we are outcast
Many refugees in our land are enjoying better conditions
In a land we call home,
Our own,our motherland...!!!
We,the marginalized are treated like trash
Old and rusty beds,and empty medicine shelves in our hospitals
They only remember us in times of election,for to them,our faces look like votes
What's the appearance of a vote...?!!
When they see us,they see different images of votes
In their favour,they see ticked ballots
Shacks and scanty settlements
Haunted slums and ghettos
Homelessness too...
This is where we thrive
With our families,this is where we live

The marginalized
Their claims of our good welfare are baseless
We the marginalized are voiceless
No matter how loud,our voices are still unheard
After all,our words make no sense
Many a time,in our homes,we sleep on empty stomachs
But because of constant and steady good feeding,their exotic dogs are bulging
Many of us think they are cursed
We live to die
Alcohol and drugs are our source of assured liberty
With these,we gain our momentary empowerment
Yes,in life,only death is certain but in our lives,going through the day alive is a big achievement
We live in abandonment
Child-headed homes and families
Single-mothers that are unemployed
And single fathers that are disconnected
And this is who we are...The Marginalized.
We Are the Marginalized ones in a lost world,Living with the lost ones.

Sofa in my heart
Emanzi Ian Jan 2022
Bright smile,slim waist
Born in the west
Time spent with you is never a waste
It's always the best
For me,Loving you is a must,
You have a sofa in heart
Yes,the sofa is heart-based
You always make me feel blessed
Losing you,up,I'd have messed
Because loving you is a must
You make me feel blessed
My worries shrink with you by my side
Come baby,let's go for a ride
Hold my hand tight,let's run to the ride
Your feelings,from me,you don't need to hide
When you are feeling the lowest,call me,and I'll rush to your side
I'll literally fly
Because you don't need to cry
If you really have to,let me be by your side
For your tears,with my hands,am willing to dry
Because you have a sofa in my heart

Sofa in heart
When your worries seem to be weighing you down,
Inside of me,enter and take your refuge
For,you have a sofa in my heart
The sofa in my heart is a soft spot for you
Get inside there and pull the blanket over your head
Worry not my love,for I'll be here,
Be here when you awake
And I'll be ready to hand you a hot cup of coffee when you awake
Immerse yourself in a tank full of me
For you have a sofa in my heart
Within this space,there is no hurt
Take off your shoes,lie down and enjoy the breeze
For after here,there is going to be a lot of ease
For you are lying in your sofa in my heart
Sofa in the heart

Maybe
Emanzi Ian Aug 2020
Maybe we are meant to be
Maybe we are just messing around with each other and this will be nomore before the new day comes
Maybe we are really going to really build this up to something stronger
Just a few days without a call or text makes you feel like maybe am gone,
Yet within those few days,you are constantly on my mind
Am weighing in on all the options of ensuring that this really turns out perfect
And yet we are not perfect
We are just humans
I just wish I could find the exact words to express how I feel about you and how you make me feel
Maybe then,you'd not be worried at all by episodes of silence
I don't wish to hurt you at all
I just wish to make you feel cared for and really loved
Please give me directions and guidance on how you wish to be loved
Guide me on your expectations of a caring partner
I am a good learner and ready to put in practice what you teach me
What am sure about though is,
I am ready to see to it that  this what we are both willing to build together blossoms
With patience and tolerance for each other's shortcomings with understanding,
We can really have some so beautiful together
Afterall,our hearts seem to have a clear  language between them.
Close your eyes and hold my hand.

Curves
Emanzi Ian Aug 2020
Curves under your dress
Girl you really impress
Nights of drinking
Different kinds of smokes in the air
Constantly,cigarrette in between those beautiful fingers on your left hand
But still,kind as a saint
You share even the smallest in your possession
The way you are ever ready to hear out others and help them with their challenges,
Makes you even more likable
Shiny Bright eyes,fresh as a new day
You are such a perfect mess
Arousing attitude that makes you such a perfect catch
That smile with teeth so white like they are bleached daily
Your laugh so heartwarming like a well-made cup of coffee on a cold morning
Curves under your dress swerve, Left and right when you move
You are indeed such a beauty to behold
I love how you are ever so bold
Even when you are really old,
I guarantee that you'll still shine like purified gold
You are such a perfect mess,
I can never ever forget our first ever kiss.

Still Here
Emanzi Ian Feb 2020
Had forgotten about my existence?!🤔
That's so brutally honest

But Honestly, I have never forgotten about the short time we shared together
You cross my mind once in a while
Reason why I had to look you
You up here on the Gram
Just to see new pics of u all in vain and it's like u gave up in Facebook

It takes me quite some time to move on and I have found out it's one of my weaknesses.

I still have some memories of you with me
Some still quite vivid and I hate it

Even the one that came before you ever came around in my life in any way left some scars...It's crazy inside there
Makes me want to just be by myself all alone most times nowadays rethinking everything

The complexity of Life
Emanzi Ian Jan 2020
In my view,one cannot wholly understand the other no matter how much of friends they are.
Even relatives can't in any way arrive at this about each other.
Not even someone with whom you have shared a bed for years.One of the abilities that the creator withheld from from us (humans) during the process of creation is knowing what the other person really has in mind or at heart and surely this continues to be the main influence of inevitable mystery about each other.
You can be at table with someone that is planning to have you totally brought down and destroyed while laughing and doing high fives,generally 'enjoying'. It's possible and I believe this has happened in many instances before.
You be madly mad at someone who wishes you all the best in your endeavors.This too is very possible and I believe it also has happened before.

We continually try to impress people that really have shown us that our advances are unappreciated persistently with hope of a change in mind.
In very normal situations,a blood brother/sister can deny any form of relation to you in situations where he he/she is in pursuit of person gain.
And yet again...

Push On
Emanzi Ian Jan 2020
Some people in our lives are just there to remind us that we can actually make it in times when we feel like we are losing everything.
In times when we feel like life is worthless,they point out lots of reasons as to why we need to be more positive and embrace being alive.

DEAR FATHER
Emanzi Ian Jan 2020
Dear Father,

The boy that many never expected to get far,got further
Further than his dreams,father
He completed his bachelors degree and went further
He stopped at a Masters
But he could have have gone further
The boy is now a father
Father,the kids wish they had met you
The boys,one of them calls me brother
Sometimes,this makes me reminisce about our relationship and wish it was better
Sometimes,you were bitter
One of the boy's companies is now listed on the Uganda Securities Exchange,father
The boy that many expected or wished would fail to complete his education,now has a school,father
It's one of the best around,father
The more experiences I went through,the more dreams I got
And the more I hoped for more
The two princesses the creator blessed me with,remind me of my mother
To you both,the bad things that I did
I wish they happened never
But now that is going to stay forever
The boy got more clever
And from my heart's lowest surface,all I can say to you is
'I Am sorry forever

Broken Dreams
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
She would have become more,
She could've have become gold.
She could've been a great champion.
A Champion.
A Champion of success,a champion of greatness.
The world missed out on her greatness.
Lawyer,doctor,engineer,pilot,advocate,politician,Leade­r,entertainer or even a musician.
All this,she could have become.
Even just one.
Only if you had been a little more patient.
A little more patient to let her grow more.
Just a little bit more patient to let her finish school.
But you didn't.
You convinced her that with you,she would achieve all she ever wanted.
All she ever yearned for.
But now,she is broken.
Her soul is all weak and frail.
She only hopes that one day,
You'd go back in time,
Back in time when,you and her were madly in love.
Back in time when the future was so far.
Now she yearns for just a little love and care.
Her hopes are gone and her dreams are crushed.
Her feelings trashed.
But she still got some trust.

Big Bellies,Big Cars
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Big Bellies,Big Cars.
These are our leaders.
Sunken Eyes,Starving stomachs
Those are your neighbors.
Dysfunctional systems and it's not so important.
Hospital shelves have no drugs and the beds are rusty.
There is no food in the basket
But the main economic activity for the country is agriculture
Bribery is now part of culture.
The doctor will decline to offer you his assistance if you don't avail him with 'a little something'.
Part of our taxes go to personal accounts some abroad.
On Some days some people in the City,I Have seen some,sell their blood through donation drives in hopes for the free biscuit and soda and this is lunch.
And some go on for some days without any food not even little to their mouth
And not because of leisure or for their pleasure.
On the days when they get what to offer to the impatiently waiting intestines,it's a pleasure.
Some of our young girls are introduced to adulthood because of the conditions in the families they come from.
Chips and chicken,KFC,maybe Cafe Javas,have fun together and definitely bed later.
Some have 'achieved' more than this,like small cars say Vitz,Raum and Spacio but their lives have not changed for the better.
Some offer their Prized bodies to these predators for petty items like phones,clothes and leisure.
The dignity lost in doing this has a measure.
All this because for some of their needs and wants,some even so small,Their parents can't cater.
Potholes in the roads can even be a topic to joke about
Harming our cars that we toiled so much to acquire,we are not so bothered,since the people in charge,will soon work on them(We hope)
Sewerage spews all over our streets and roads sometimes and still we are hopeful for the better.
Maybe not now,maybe later.

Big bellies,Big Cars.
Those are our leaders.
Sunken eyes,Starving stomachs
Those are your Neighbors

MEMORIES
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Through them,you get to re-live a moment that once was
They move you from the present to the past
It's just their nature
Some are so nice
Some are just hurtful whenever they come around
Some you might wish you could erase them from your mind
The moment migt have not been intended to be memorable but if it's really meant to be,
It will be
That's it
You just won't have control over it
Months will pass
Years will move
But still,the moment will still be around like the moment just ended

LIFE
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Life is not all sweet and fun
Life involves some ups and downs
Life is not just a smooth journey
There will be going through valleys and going up hills and mountains
There will be time to smile and laugh and,
There will also be time to cry and sob
While you are winning,always remember that there will be time to lose
While you are succeeding,be reminded that there'll be time for failure

PLEASE ME
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
PLEASE ME
Show me that you deserve my love
Love me enough to make me long for you
I want to crave for you
Make me feel like I really need no other
Many are yearning for my love,
At least a hug
Or even just a touch
Some want to pay me for just a kiss
Give me reason to want you
Your beauty is something but,
I want more
You are not one of a kind
Many are out there that can replace you
This I know that anytime I wish to be pleased, I am in position to afford just that
I move to places and see many wonders
Many beauties too
Some, I’ve been blessed to share moments with them
Please me, I want to have my eyes only for you

Please me, tease me
Kiss me like no other
Love me like I’ve never been loved
Show me love in ways I haven’t yet experienced
Claim me and have me all for yourself
Guard me away from them jealously
Give them no chance to take me away from you
I want to feel like am your treasure
And then, I’ll give you so much pleasure
Believe me, they don’t want us together
Our union bothers many
And believe me or not, you have such a big task to keep me for you
But all it takes is for you to please me
I want to feel like am your treasure
Dec 2019 · 247
Please Be Mine
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
PLEASE BE MINE

I am so glad that today found me alive
Meeting you is the main reason for this
You are such a beauty
Allow me some time and let’s get to know each other
About the other girls, I won’t bother
You are like no other
Make me wait no more
Let’s get out of here and be somewhere alone together
Don’t worry about your friends, you’ll back with them later
Hold my hand and let’s go share a moment
I want to feel your heartbeat
And tell you that all will be just alright.
Make me wait no more
Let’s get out of here and be somewhere alone together

WORTHLESS
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Maybe I was made to achieve something greater than I can be able to think of now
Maybe I am being prepared for worse that is yet to happen to me
Honestly, I sometimes feel like I should give up
Like I need to give up
Sometimes, I start to feel like life is really meaningless
I am made to think by some situations that out of all that I am toiling for, nothing is worth it
Nothing is worth not even some little effort
But again, I have no option but to keep going
Maybe someday, I’ll begin to witness better days
But why does life have to treat me like this?
Why can’t I just be alright?!
Why can’t I just arrive at all I wish to achieve?
Challenges here, challenges there
Disappointments here and there
Maybe I will never make it
But again, I don’t wish this ever comes to life
Maybe I’ll achieve all I ever dreamed of and so much more

Dear Future Girlfriend
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Dear Future Girlfriend,

I think so much about you lately
How will your figure be, I wonder!
How sweet will your voice be!
How infectious will your laugh be!
I still feel hurt about my last heartbreak
And I hope that you’ll somehow make me forget about this
When we have got to understand each other,
I hope for love and care exclusively for me
How further more do I have to wait?
How longer is the wait going to last?
I wonder
Preserve yourself more for me, please
Keep yourself pure
We are meant to meet at some point of our lives
It’s been some time now ever since I was last in love now
I hope that you’ll remind me of how it feels to be loved
I can’t wait to receive your love
I can’t wait for you to arrive.
I can’t wait to receive your love
I can’t wait for you to arrive.

MANY A TIME
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Many a time,I feel so alone
Like I am really alone
Alone on my own
Many a time,I feel like I have no real friends
Many a time,
I feel like I have no real family
Like I don't really belong
This has been now going on for long
Sometimes,I feel like all that's happened around me is fake
That's maybe why on some days,the only smile I can afford is fake
I feel no hate,
Just heavy emptiness sometimes
And loads of unfulfilled promises that further get me wishing that I would get more than I deserve
I crave for real and authentic happiness sometimes,
Fake smiles,forced laughter,
And awkward hugs
I Yearn for a place where my heart and soul are going to be at sufficient rest
No haste
Fake smiles,forced laughter,
And awkward hugs
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
My honey, my favorite sweetness
Honey, hug me so tight
Please, don’t let go
For, this feels so right
Come closer by my side,
Don’t be so far from
While we are chilling together,
Peck me on the neck and remind me you’ll always love me
Oh…, how I enjoy these moments with you
My love is for you
Honey, my love is yours
I promise to always love you
While we are apart
Honey, I crave for you
I yearn for you
I miss you sometimes
I love the way you show me your love
I love the way you know how to care for me too
Give me all your trust and let’s keep this in place together, boo

My honey, my favorite sweetness
Kiss me once more and it will take me through the day
Throughout the day, the mind will surely wander and you’ll be in my thoughts
Kiss me and remind me how much you feel for me once more
My time spent with you is never a bore
Honey, your loving for me gives my heart some kind of comfort
I promise again that I will never hurt you
Thoughts about you make me smile a little
Be sure I Am all yours
I got you for me and you found me too
Those other girls, don’t mind about them because they won’t really get my time
You are the only one I love
You are all I have
You are the only one I need to love
My honey, my favorite sweetness
You are the only one I love
You are all I have
You are the only one I need to love

Black And White America
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
There is no more white America
America is black and white
And America was built by Blacks
Blacks imported from different parts of Africa
Imported from Africa as slaves
They were taken away from their homes and separated from friends and families against their will
They were made to do hard labor to the satisfaction of their masters without pay, under very harsh and forceful instruction
Most of the ways in which they were treated so wicked
I think all Africans in a way are entitled to free access and entry into America
Of course, with proper regulation
This is not the case now, of course
They were made to do hard labor to the satisfaction of their masters without pay, under very harsh and forceful instruction
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Don’t give up yet, hold on a minute
He returns home late and drunk daily
Don’t give up yet, hold on a minute
I still remember the words you said when you me for him
Don’t give up yet, hold on a minute
You told me to go to hell with my love and that he is all you needed to love
You also told me you were ready to spend the rest of your life with him
It’s just one kid down the road and a few disappointments here and there, and you are ready to abandon your so-called soul mate?!
You should never wish that you and I ever get back together
You almost wrecked my heart and I survived that
I do not ever want you back in my life, not even as a friend
What we once had totally came to an end
For some time after you were gone, I constantly wished you’d come back to me all in vain

Don’t give up yet, hold on a minute
Maybe, all he initially felt for you was lust and you never thought of it that way
Maybe, he even got fed up of you long time back but has not really found the right way to let you know
What if he still does love you so much?
Maybe, during those days when he comes back late, he is from meeting with his other lover that is younger than you
Just don’t give yet, hold on a minute
Patience pains but pays, you know that
If you persevere and eventually, he rethinks his actions, you’ll be so proud of yourself
Don’t give up yet, hold on a minute
Even on those days when he returns violent, bear with him and show him that still, you will stay with him
I call that love and care
Don’t give up yet, hold on a minute.

ALL ALONE
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
All alone in my bed, I am lying
Wondering why you came
Into my life
Yet at some point,
You were something I really thought I hoped for
I take back my love and erase all that’s gone
Maybe then, I’ll be back home
Back home with my soul
Maybe that’s what I really wholly own
All my love is now gone
Kiss me no more
Your words are bitter
Hug me no more
Your soul is so cold
Blood pumping in my soul when I wake,
I hope for more
Hope for better
With some hope deep down in my head for something worse than the worst that ever broke down my heart
Paranoia maybe, maybe it’s not
I am wide awake now, my heart almost got wrecked
I got back now
Maybe my eyes closed to some, but I see the most now

This Is Uganda
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
This is Uganda
My motherland
My home that I love so much
Boom, boom, boom,boom
Another prominent leader has been shot dead
Who is it?
Abiriga, the yellow man
Panic here, panic there
Some arrests here and there
And that’s it
He is gone
And the killers too are nowhere to be seen

This is Uganda
Around that time, it’s party here and party there
Many of my brothers and sisters have come to the beginning of the end of their time in school and some totally done
The graduation has brought well-wishers, relatives, friends and family from different places
Happiness is all in the air
But for many, the excitement ends there
Because months and years after that, they are still hoping to find their first job and the hopes seem to be withering down and getting further like the sun setting at dusk
Some have chosen paths totally different from what they studied for
The professional doctor is now a trader
The one that studied engineering is now a farmer

This is Uganda
The neighbor’s dogs are feasting on meat, chicken bones or even the chicken itself and maybe some serious Dog food sold in supermarkets but they  slept on empty stomachs the previous night,
The mother is the main breadwinner for the husband abandoned them
There is very thin hope for a meal the next day
Maybe a Good Samaritan will do a miracle
But it certainly is not going to be their most immediate neighbor
While kids from well-to-do families are picked from the gates of their parents’ homes to go to school and brought back later in the evening,
Somewhere in the same age range or slightly older has also woken up to start his/her day
With his/her old & ***** sack on the back, held by the neck, he traverses the whole village throughout the day in search for scrap metal, plastics and some metallic cans that he/she hopes to sell off and find a little something to buy some food and also enjoy some ‘luxuries’ like maybe buying a secondhand T-shirt/Dress
Imagine that!

This is Uganda
We pay for justice
Some pay to deny other justice
And that’s the way it is
A police officer will ask you for a bribe openly with no shame
And that’s the order of the day
Disguised as a small token for ‘Ka-soda’ or ‘Ka-lunch’
This is Uganda
