“London, My Playground”

Moving in Earls Court. Alone in North End Road at midnight. Lost in the snow in Chelsea. Rainy days tucked in Fulham. Lost in Colliers Wood. Summer naps in Richmond Park. Rehearsing in Putney. Falling in love in Becontree. Running around Hyde Park at dawn. Exhausted from Seven Sisters. Contemplating in Kingston. Celebrating birthdays inContinue reading ““London, My Playground””

“You (All of You)”

You showed me how to be grateful with having the best friend ever. You taught me how to wake up the sleeping child in me. You showed me how to be a better brotha, one who can rate a girl’s You taught me how to embrace the corniness and the craziness only I can be.Continue reading ““You (All of You)””

“Lady in the Yellow Dress”

One, two, three, four, before I lost interest, lady in the yellow dress caught my drowsy eyes.

“10736 Kilometres”

I like looking through the pictures that tell me the hundred stories of your piercing eyes, electricity, your arms around me, my love, my safety. I captured the look on their faces before the plane took me away from the sun, the sky and the sands. You remember the look on their faces after anotherContinue reading ““10736 Kilometres””

New Poem out via @WORKMag!

The timing of this poem’s publication is too perfect. Written around this time last year, this poem tells a story once again why you are where you are today, reminding you to detach myself from the negative energy, just work your ass off and focus on the narrow path ahead, as that’s where the fruitsContinue reading “New Poem out via @WORKMag!”
