I was born, raised and went through most of my schooling in Kenya. I moved to South Africa in 2001 to pursue my university studies at Wits, where my interest in expressing my views in writing Essays, Short Stories and Poems blossomed and gave rise to most of my current work.

I have been writing Essays, Short Stories and Poems, in one form or the other, since I was about 15 years old, although I never did keep most of my early writings or take them seriously until I got to Wits University.

I have found writing to be very therapeutic, and a way to express my views on Life, Love and Being African. Living, and considering the wealth of experiences we have, on our beautiful African continent, a continent rich with experiences and culture has fuelled most of my work.

I am currently focusing on my career as a banker, and focusing on writing and compiling most of my work (Short stories and poetry) which I will hopefully publish one day.

___________________________

AFRICAN WOMAN

Like you and I she comes,

Screaming into a world of woe.

Unknown to her innocence,

A life of toil and hardship.

African woman, born of a woman.

She lives a life full of love,

But she lives in utter hatred.

Just like the ones before her,

She is but another one, only just another one.

African woman, born of a woman.

In her time she toils,

If only to feed her seed.

Her heart she bears gracefully,

In the face of woe and sorrow.

African woman, born of a woman.

When her time is nigh,

Just as her mother’s came,

She is to be just another mother,

Only to bring to us another little one.

African woman, born of a woman.

If it be an end,

May it be graceful,

With sorrowful cheer,

A send off for a mighty one.

African woman, born of a woman.

– End –


XENOPHOBIA

Take a close look,

An eXamination, if you like;

An element of hatrEd,

Pure Negativity,

Openly Opressive, and yet,

Truly Pitiful

Surely, surely Hideous

An Open act

Of sheer Brutality mixed

With Ignorance beyond

That of Animals!

– End –

    I think I like the way you write Sbali, your choice of words is so simple to deliver the message and make the reader understand.
    Big Words, i think I like it.
    Keep it up Bro!

    From the bottom of my heart, this is dissapointing, I am appalled that this standard of poetry is confined to drawers and writers like this have to go into banking to make a living while such art takes a back seat, these are the sad realitlies of the times, for the record, I am now a fan! The depth of the simplicity is intriguing, we are tired of poets who want to show us they know deeper words than us before they talk sense!
