nothing to prove

not to you not to anybody. so i am learning how to lose arguements. waste of time. keeping your temper about you requires strength. keeping your senses active; you get into the world with your guard up screaming “let me at them! let me at them”. you descend into the 4 by 6 darkness your fists unfurled. life’s a war. every day’s battle.

float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. light feet heavy fists – lets dance. life’s a banquet welcome to the feast. you are alone – never forget. ‘mla nawe hafi nawe ‘ . (s)he who eats with you does not die with you. patience is a virtue; the hardest part of war. time and timing. know yourself and know your enemy. persistence pays dont give up, never give up. no retreat no surrender.

they keep coming for you. this is no shadow boxing but smoky mirrors, cloak and daggers. ‘kikulacho ki nguoni mwako‘. what eats you is in your clothing. what is it you cover yourself in? it is said clothes maketh a man. also as a man thinketh… connect my dots.

they set moulds they need to fit you into. standards they want you to live. dogma for you to believe. what for? so that they champion you mr. cassius clay. fighting their battles. purple hearts, crosses, eye patches and iron legs. choose your own battles. follow your own passions. is what i do. beat a path. do it my way


that’s all for now

  1. You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser,
    You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger,
    You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together,
    All I know, all I know, love will save the day…
