Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it



is the light which keeps away

the darkness of ignorance.

Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you.

Tough times,

are the fertilizer,

that provide for the fast growth,

of he who embraces the pain.

Knowing that he will gain

the strength, to reach for the light

and to crush the night,

within the palms of his hands.

A Prison

Never stress when you’re under pressure. Its pressure that makes the diamond.

Lazarus Shatipamba


My love is a prison.

I’ll sentence you with no reason
Either than being suspect of stealing
My heart – to go make some art.

I’ll confine you to – a lifetime of captivity.
You’ll find no mates here,
So it’s solitary for you.

And when things get slippery
I’ll watch with a smile on my face
As the soap slips from your hands.

People who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes.

When you fall witness to the rise of the sun,
And its warm, cheerful rays reach out to cling-
Onto the stiff limbs of thine body that sting,
From the colds freezing breathe that stops all fun.

Remain resolute in the hope you’ll live-
Through the worst winters the land has to give.
