Are you a tourist or
A volcanologist my dear?
With a painful joy
To a live volcano getting near,
Do you want to pay homage
To earth's nadir
Conscious that beneath a sea level
A sweltering heat you can bear?
Then to Erta Ale go you not why
Found under Ethiopia's sky?
With a style jumping high,
Hitting the ground
Beating drums, on their waists,
Sabres tied around
Afro men along with...

The haunting past,
The heart of anxiety,
The present limitations,
The lack of belief in myself,
Uncertainty of knowing myself,
These are the lions in my den,
The lighting and thunder in my storm,
The dark walls enclosing on my shoulders,
The waves that are ready to pummel me in my ocean of lif...

The headlights from the oncoming vehicle
held the stunned animals in their grasp
The beams like a claw clasping around its prey
An unholy ray screaming silently into the night
Distant, but penetrating.
Approaching still closer,
terror in their hearts,
the vehicle turned off the road
And transformed into a rainbow
Dazzling colours and many forms.
Behold a crystal,
the prism of light br...

I came across with a dead rose.
How impure and crooked it seemed.
Deteriorated without the life it once had.
I kept walking with it, holding it with my right hand.
How sad it was to see a rose like that.
Where once it was bright red,
now it’s only a brown looking thing with nothing left.
I kept walking with the dead rose,
a sad rose with no thorns.
Until the path ended i...

The overwhelming sky enthralls me
Shows me its magic, fills me with glory
Layers of stratus, piles of towering cumulus
Cirrus lacing glazes overtop
Neon pink icy scribbling on an evening horizon
Fireworks sunsets, pale sleepy dawns
Reds, yellows, purples, greens overwrite the blue and black
Gauguin, Picasso, Rothko must have felt this
The Starry Night is truth, no wonder Vincent suffered s...

Kiss me now I say,
and I promise I won't cry.
Tell me, what do you see?
Do you see this sad soul searching for clues or
do you see someone who has the same soul as yours?
Life is such a wonder,
to live not knowing things and to die for something worth it.
I say now kiss me,
I'm not sure what will happen next.
But I promise is worth it.
Life is such a beauty....

I've been here before...
Somewhere between places,
somewhere I can't escape.
Does it feel the same or does it feel different this time?
Am I just a memory with no feelings left or am I something you still look for in your dreams?
I may not know and never will...
But maybe not knowing is better.
For me, I am only me.
Something you can't simply replace.

Oh how I crave to feel the touch of the ocean.
My skin longs to feel the mountain breeze.
This heart of mine seems insatiable when it comes to wandering,
What this world holds and where my place in it is.
I search for new in the old and for excitement in the familiar.
How wonderful it is that you eventually find what you are looking for.

I've wondered at the pain inside
I've wondered at the choices
I wonder about the boy that died,
and why I never lost the voices.

Mommy please don't let me go,
don't let me be your second priority
because, for 14 years you'd left me
before I could see you;
my mother who'd brought me here
Did you not love me?
I dared to ask myself
and was I what you wanted
I dared to think of.
For years I stood here in pain
and you stood so far away
i'd began to wonder if.
If you'll always be
just a thought in my mind

As I bask in the sun
The rain starts to fall
Droplets find the ground like silver
I am filled with childish wonder
Awaiting the magic, it appears
The colours bring my world
My sky awakens
To excite me from within
I seek to find my utopia
Not for the riches of wealth
Only for the affirmation
Are you looking for me?
You will find me at the e...

Do You Ever Wonder?
As you drive past houses,especially late at night,
Do you ever wonder?
With their curtains open wide,
Lights on inside,
I often wonder
what they're up to,
why or where they bought that glass clown ornament from,
with it's bejewelled colours
inside thick cheap glass,
