New Day
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
NEW DAY

Beautiful sunrise,it's a new day
I am blessed again to be alive
It's yet another chance for more opportunities
Struggle once more to overcome the challenges
It's a new day,some did not make it to this day
Who am I not to be grateful?!
To the Lord Almighty, I am thankful
Another chance to be surrounded by those that I love
It's yet another chance to extend love to those that need it the most
Among all His people,of course I am not the best
But he has seen it right to make me see a new day
Many that I once knew are no more
They went away and we are never to see each other here
Another chance to make more friends and enjoy life
Another chance to travel to new places and appreciate nature
It's a new day,I can smile and laugh once more

Beautiful sunrise it's a new day
The birds are singing as if to praise His name
The rivers are flowing like they can never stop
It's a new day,hills and mountains are still standing tall
It's a new day,the wicked will fall
It's a new day,my debtors will pay
While His name I can still glorify,
The temptations of the devil I'll defy
It's a new day,I can breathe in and out
It's a new day,my worries shall pass.

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.

Perfect is not for humans
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Perfect is not for humans
We kiss and tell,love and forget
We hug and lie,
We are only human anyway, and
Perfect is not for humans
Sometimes, our personal needs and wants make us overlook what the others think,
After all, we are only human

Perfect is not for humans.

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

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

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

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

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

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 somachs
Those are your Neighbors

New Love
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.
I am worried about losing you
Gimme your hand and let's walk this journey together.

Left And Right
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Left and right her hips go when she moves
Brighter than the sun her smile is
To impress any man, she does it with ease
Whenever we are together,I like the way it feels
I swear, she is a star at finesse
Her style, an example it is for many girls out there
Her dresses hold her tight in all the right places
Her gracefulness in the way she moves is for princesses
She is a star in her own league
And she has a heart so big
She cares about even the most lowly placed
Every time we meet, she leaves me pleased

When we had just met, she didn’t easily let me into her life
She played so hard to get like she didn’t really feel a thing for me
But here we are and I sometimes think about having her as my wife
Have her for me as a wife for life
I guarantee this would really get me so pleased
About this,I am so sure because she leaves me yearning for more every time we share a moment
For me, knowing she is coming around is enough to cause excitement
Even when I know she’ll go and thereafter leave me all alone by myself.

Dear My Next Girlfriend
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Dear my next 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.

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

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.

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

Toxic minds,Broken hearts
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Toxic minds,Broken hearts

Be so far from me when I need you the most
Yes,I like it that way
Let your love for me overflow and then spill it
Maybe this will heal you
Heal you and me
Play me all you want
Lie to me as you wish
For my sense of judgement is broken, I know no truth
Do it under oath
And lie to the judge,for there is no judge

I have cried,I have laughed
I have hugged,I have kissed
We all really do pretend sometimes
Fake smiles and forced laughter
Forced interest and awkward hugs
Do me no good, I deserve no good
Don't shower me with your fake compliments, say it just the way it is and it will make no difference
Realness is costly, it could cost you some fake from friends and gain you some real enemies.

Love Me
Emanzi Ian Dec 2019
Love me so much that I’ll think about no other
Hold me so tight and make me feel like this will last forever
Kiss me softly, make me want some more
Leave me yearning for more
This, what we have I swear I will never let go
Leave me yearning for more because yes,
I need some more
So sweet you are, yes,
Like sugar or honey
You make me want to spend all my money
My lover,you are my honey,
My sugar
My money

Call me sweetheart,
I will call you my honey
I also like how you are funny
While at it, scream my name and make me give it to you harder
I like it when you are under
Pull me closer into your embrace
I love it when you impress
I like it when we caress.

My Dreams

My dreams I chase while the haters gaze
Trials arise but hell ,I rise
So far,I am sure my gods I please
They are pleased
And the monster in me hasn't yet been released
I will let them curse
But still,I'll move on with force
Through the valley of temptations,I will cross
I am already handed with my pass
Straight, I will glide through the path
Strong faith
Strong heart
I won't be hurt
The results will be cast
Cast for all to see
To see, watch and learn
To see and catch a feeling
To see and be inspired.

PLEASE ME

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

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

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.

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

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
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.

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

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...

— The End —
