HEART ON HIS SLEEVE (Wordbenda):

He once was healthy now he’s got heart disease

‘Love’, ‘care’; those words never put him at ease

And you really wanna know what the truth is?

If his heart was a shirt then it’s really creased

So he built up a castle with a dungeon beneath

Locked his heart, guarded by a dragon that breathes:

Fire n flames n it totally keeps-

Away anyone gets close be bitten by sharp teeth

Can’t spell the word L.O.V.E

Now He’s cursing more than ‘R rated TV’

Gangster Rap on his MP3

Pumping hate into his veins as he’s listening

*Baba your word is true, yeah n’ he believes

He wants that freedom that you came to give

So break the chains n let him live

Trust again n Wear his heart on his sleeve

                        *~        *          ~*

He knows her kiss is poisonous but he still partakes

Michael Scofield, He’s trying to get the prison brake

Yes he’s past childhood years but he still got tears

Coz that  lil’ boy inside still got fears

Beef between God n him like a burger from steers

Steering wheel of his life but this car tends to veer

_ mO-to the left coz he left the right

_ mO -wrong dealt coz he left the light

Akitry ku-make right ana  fall short: kushoto

Anataka kustunt ka daddy lakini bado mtoto

When he’s left he cries to be right yanni kulia

Ana pigania ukweli, daily anasoma bibilia

*Baba wont you set him free let him be with his destiny

He wants that freedom that you came to give

So break the chains n let him live

Trust again n Wear his heart on his sleeve

                        *~        *          ~*

I am totally convinced that all he needs is love

Aint talking romantic am talking real love

I had to say it twice at the expense of my rhyme scheme

Just so that you understand exactly what I mean

Childhood pain like Kungfu Panda

True life story in these stanzas

Help him navigate this Ngong forest of fears

He wants to go drown his sorrows in a couple of beers

*Baba wont you set him free let him be with his destiny

He wants that freedom that you came to give

So break the chains n let him live

Trust again n Wear his heart on his sleeve

                        *~        *          ~*

Am going back to the days that were simple

When I used to smile with a dimple

  Tired of going back n forth like a game of ping pong

Shukuru Mola kwa kunipa nuru, Getting freedom

Cause I’m off the tennis table n into the sky

No machozi juu macho ziko dry

Deep inside am setting free that little boy

Cause the Devil came to kill steal n destroy

Aburuke mabawa pawa no mo prison time

Demons take a holiday, you’ve been working overtime

Since I was 16 I’ve just been agnostic

Looking for the truth now I seen it n I got it

Your word is truth yeah n’ I believe

I want that freedom that you came to give

So break the chains n let ME live

Trust again n Wear MY heart on MY sleeve

 Catch him on
