One
All we need is one
One God
One world
One life
One love
One human race
One destiny

Billions of people all struggling to fulfil seeming different agenda
But we all are in pursuit of one collective destiny
We all need just one
One dream
One day
One hour
One minute
One second
One moment

We don’t need more than one
Be known for one thing
Every day do one thing
That draws you nearer to your dream
And if to save the world is your dream
Do it
One step at a time
Each one reach one
Be the one
Make a difference to one person
Be the one you are created to be
Because that’s all you can be
The whole pursuit of life is to be one
Jesus said I and the Father we are one
Unity The purpose of God
Integrity
The essence of God
You may have many goals but don’t pursue more than one at any one time
It’s about oneness

One mic
One dream
One life
One wife
One world
One God
One destiny
One love One

Televised Revolution

Enlarge poem

This revolution will be televised for their evolution needs to be revised
Because we are victims of a revelation that was contrived

I sit on the threshold as I behold a party of pilgrims from across the bridge
Their bodies frozen cold as a fridge
We revolutionaries sit on the edge of pain like cow dung on farm ridge
Like black butterflies blown by contrary winds and ditched
Hope and anger linger together hook line and sinker like tuna about to be fished
Their intelligence make me want to say ish
What do they think you are
Tell me
A foolish young village belle looking to be hitched?
Ish
Again then,I am but an extension of my pen
An expression of my pain
I am saying
My revolution will be televised
Because I possess a revelation that needs not to be revised

We are being threatened by theories of evolution that was foolishly contrived

We suffer as if by electrocution
That’s how our souls are bein sensitised
The powers that seem to be deem to only have our minds lobotomised
Automation by evolution’s proponents is the goal of this counter
revolution and its pungent
These people are mere agents of an unknown civilisation
And as you get older you get colder
In your pseudo life of a soldier
You look like a washed out
Washed thru
Washed up
Washed in
Has been
That’s been
Living
In a bin
Living on gin and cigarette filters
Filthy
Feeling guilty
Cos yo failure is your monument
You fail to grasp your moment
You are an orchid set in cement
Blaming everyone else but yourself for your up ending internment
Free yourself from prison
The prisms of your ego
Be like me
Fight the system that be
Can’t you see
You are valued less than they value a tree
Screw your civility
What is civil about a war
That’s not a revolution
That’s your evolution of evil
The madness of a people gone ill
Symptomatic of the hand of the devil
Why do you want to rise and kill
That’s ill
Yet still
My revolution must be televised
My people must be sensitised
This reality should no longer be romanticised
No need too late to apologise

Have you seen icy tears slither from a cold heart thru eyes not there
Have you felt pain you couldn’t shed a tear
Have you had fright you couldn’t shudder in fear
Has apathy hit you like a zulu spear
As reason and emotion morph none any longer clear
And yet you arch to hear
The word in your ear
Visions and appaeitions spoken by this seer
And if its true that life’s best are free
Why is free this dear
The drumbeat of this revolution draws near
And this revolution must be televised
And even if my revolution was contrived
The evolution of my revolution is so every man woman boy and girl can
truly claim we are free
Do you agree
