    A Candlelight Nearing Its End

    by Keats Azla

    An oak wood burning--a crisp
    crackling hum of fire from
    the hearth, sends a comforting
    consolation, as I longed for you

    With such fervent zeal, I can
    no longer suppress, like a
    throbbing pain in my head
    as I think of you, incessantly.

    A warm, hearty and moreish
    porridge, provide warmth and
    security, same as though when
    you cherished me in your embrace

    With such feeling of home and family.
    Oh, my beloved, I ask of you,
    'How long am I to wait?'
    My scrawny fingers are growing tired

    And cold, as I write these
    letters, I could no longer see
    for, the looming winter begins
    to obscure the remaining light

    Of Autumn. A lanky candle
    illuminates my very dark room, as
    I ponder and ruminate of
    our long-awaited reconciliation

    Reconcile

    We are told to reconcile with our past,
    Even set a day to celebrate our oppressors,
    How do we reconcile and move on when the
    Oppressor is a mother, a father or even
    Another child.
    The past is a time capsule that's best kept
    Shut.
    But Wait - Reconciliation is the form of
    coming back together right?
    then why does it hurt us when we do reconcile.
    We look in the mirror and still see scars,
    The time capsule called the past has been
    Broken - just like our hearts, you see,
    Events from the past are easily triggered
    Almost like a automatic assault rifle -
    Your words are the bullets that pierce the
    Heart, makes it hard to smile freely and
    Reconcile.

    Strength

    You are just as strong as your ability to reconcile with your past, learn from it, apply it in the present and define your future.

    Ubuntu

    Have you ever met a theistic electron,
    Or a proton with a certain coloured skin?
    Have you ever seen the neutrons at war
    Over the parts of the world they're in?

    Have you ever heard any hatred fly
    Out of the mouths of a mitochondria?
    Or observed bigotry towards a haemoglobule
    Because of its sexuality, or gender?

    For some reason when we separate our parts
    Such unkindness would seem absurd,
    Yet when they're assembled all together
    None are concepts we haven't all heard.

    As humans we fail at times to remember
    That a force exists between me, and you,
    And the rest us; that we all deserve treatment
    In the spirit of "Ubuntu".

    "Ubuntu" should be our default.
    Before we speak, we act, or decide.
    Perhaps if we did we'd be more civil
    Rather than choosing to "take a side"

    We all begin life the very same way,
    And we all end up in the same place.
    My utopian heart would gladly welcome a day
    Where we shed status, titles, and race.

    Such sounds like such an impossible feat,
    For the whole Earth won't change in a day.
    Yet even if Ubuntu is commited to, little by little
    It would still change the world in a beautiful way.

    ~Reconciliation~

    And just like that
    Eyes in eyes
    They shook hands
    With a warm smile on the
    face
    Filled with grace
    Of an unimposed silence
    they remained
    Until they parted

    DARK-SHINE

    When it's dark-time you the sunshine:
    Though you dark skinned, you still shine
    Shine bright than the sunlight;
    You lit up all my life
    You the definition of a good time;
    Shine bright! My dark-shine.

    A twist in time and you mine:
    When you with me everything fine
    You a great girl
    I'm a good guy
    You the definition of a good vibe;
    You make fly! My dark-shine.

    A twist in time now it's wartime:
    Everything now like it's end time
    Having nightmares that you no long'r mine
    Will fight a good fight, babe fight a good fight
    It's hard time now, No time out
    One more time, we can still shine
    Let us shine; Let us shine.

    "I cannot reverse the past. But trust me when I say I now a whole different person.
    This few days have taught me to be a better person, a better person for you.
    Please, do not punish me with a breakup.
    I don't wanna leave, I just want to be with you".

    Enough!

    Enough I've had enough 
    Righteous anger mixed with love
    So much time, it was too much 
    And you still left me in your dust

    You split town to chase a clown,
    And you're the punchline don't you see?
    He fooled you once, he'll fool you twice
    But I won't be around for three.

    Put the time in on my knees,
    Every night I prayed for you,
    I loved you good, I touched you good,
    But I won't be a slave to you.

    You said that I did all that I could,
    But that still wasn't enough,
    Regardless what I did or tried,
    Your heart was void of any love.

    I went to God and asked Him,
    How do I save my Wife from sin?
    But He took that burden off me,
    Said son it's time to rise again.

    See some people have a call,
    And those people get attacked,
    Unfortunately sometimes families
    Turn into devil's snacks.

    So go ahead and punch the floor,
    Scream your lungs out make em sore,
    Fight the battles in the spirit,
    Put yourself in holy war.

    But if she's letting evil in,
    Running back time and time again,
    Then your the one who looks a fool,
    You might as well just let her win.

    It's time to set yourself apart,
    Let her go and save your kids,
    Do the best you can with all you have,
    Ley your life down and you will live!

    I've got bigger plans for you,
    If you stay strong now you will see,
    I've made you bold brave and courageous,
    So now submit and fight for me!

    I need warriors on this battlefield,
    And you've been fighting all your life,
    The time has come for you to choose
    To chase the wrong or love what's right.

    I will return to you what's stolen,
    Make your heart whole where it was broken,
    You've done well now just stay focused,
    I'm proud of you to no end.

    If a wife and mother is what you want
    I'll give you that, I'll fill your cup
    But the promises won't stop there,
    Just run your race and DON'T GIVE UP!

    A WARRIOR IN THE JUNGLE

    "Wod Luo" Do not stay in the Jangle,
    Come back home..
    A great warrior never leaves his people, Alone
    Especially if they need him most.

    Why do you have to live your life in the bush?
    When we are here waiting for you,
    To welcome you with a heartfelt joy
    Like the prodigal son.

    "Wod luo,"
    Even dogs eat from the remains of the children
    You are a child yourself
    And your food is still covered waiting for you to come and enjoy.
    You fought battles and was always victorious,

    I guess you ain't yet exhausted
    But don't wait until you are too tired to come home.
    Come back when you are still young and active.
    We all know you are an ivory
    But if you reach your golden age in the bush,
    You may become too sweet for the lion.

    "Wod Luo" means Son of The Acholi
    A tribe in Northern Uganda which experienced the Lord Resistance Army's war Outbreak.

    DADA

    Dada,
    The memory that you created for us all
    Is undeniable,
    Which part would one forget..
    The one that you ended people's life without warning,
    Or the one that you sexually assaulted many #women?

    Truth is, the pain, Tears,
    Agony,and Frustration you caused,
    Not even a yesterday's Child will
    Not be told.

    You robbed young women
    Of their #Dignity with your
    "Manly pacts"
    And with a flaming eyes, You
    Torn apart human Flesh.

    Being you were alive,
    You would forever be in the
    Depts of the People,

    But in the heart of A #mother,
    There's always love and Forgiveness
    What's done is done
    There are red and black Roses
    But you'll always choose one...

    And you chose black
    Yes, black
    Yet if you were still here,
    The People would give you a second chance,
    A chance to choose...
    With a hope that this time, it would be red.

    #DADA

    FIERY CHARIOT!

    Evangelism is a fiery chariot with a burning messenger,
    preaching a blazing Gospel on wheels of fire!
    Allow the Holy Spirit to make your ministry His chariot.

    LOVERS' SUIT

    Come and take a walk with me,
    As i retract my soul from the shadows of enviousness,
    Hold my hands as we imprison your mobile loneliness.
    This walk will heal a lot,
    Trapping our feet from slipping to divorce,
    I plea thee, in chains and with mercy,
    Let this suit begin our unity.

    Of course you know, heroism will be vague,
    If by your refusal, i am given to plague.
    Grant me this request,
    So I may rest in good health.

    Raindrops

    The cloud slowly moved above us like a white blanket
    so beautiful one would think it was for a banquet
    it came in peace with blessing from on High
    That mercy will soon descend from the covered sky
    Awakening the land that so longingly waited
    to be nourished by its droplets and be feted
    My eyes wish to mimic this magnificent droplet
    a teardrop rolls down my cheek into my goblet
    Grateful I ought to be for the rain and the lesson
    how the rain can so miraculously the earth freshen
    The trees are smiling and the seed ready to sprout
    New life is starting and too many blessings to count
    The rain washes away that which is a bit of waste
    Watch the seed grow in its time with no apparent haste
    The seed will sprout and break through the earth
    announcing its arrival that a new life has sprung forth
    It started with the first droplet of rain from on high
    Nourish yourself in the mercies which you can't deny
    Be like the seed readied for a new life and growth
    Therein lies the magical garment with which you clothe

    The mistakes we make may affect others. It is time to reconcile - forgive - and if it is within us, then to rectify.

    Turning Darkness into Light

    We fought hard as we sought the prize
    But I never thought you'd resort to lies
    It does seem that you never will regret
    You likely don't care if we ever again met

    I extend my hand to you in resolution
    Even though you still battle your delusion
    I have no qualms in saying that I'm sorry
    Life is way to short for all this worry

    As I pray for myself I do for you
    Turning your back is what you may rue
    It is not I who will be the final judge
    And your happiness I never do begrudge

    As the clock ticks it is time to say farewell
    Never do I pray for any to land in hell
    Time waits for no one to do what is right
    Relief of a burden turns darkness to light

    Still

    Cloudy skies being still
    Rock in my chair
    Take my pill
    Sounds relaxing and conforming
    Old age realized
    Steps been taken
    Revitilized
    Energies tapped
    Healings proceed
    Life still on your side
    Push aside individuals greed
    Speak out
    This is the time
    For awakening and judgement
    Its not a crime
    You have paid your dues
    Learned from your experiences
    So thats it
    Let them come
    Debates , discussions and the odd grievances

    Old house

    Up the stairs
    Flee the media
    The news are a mush
    No clear answers explanations
    Drawn out probes
    Cancelled trusts

    A cold breeze hits your face
    You almost miss a step
    Hidden wisdoms in the attic
    Questioned truth one stair up

    Once you enter this realm
    Can you wishful take those steps back
    Into the main arena
    And then stay calm ?

    Good times they had

    Parents stories from long ago
    Born into the scene
    Refugees came from the east
    Driven west by revengeful forces
    Regime collapsed
    People punished
    grabbing possesions loading their carts
    Endless treks boiled chickens in bag

    Peace came houses shared
    They are all the same
    Growing gardens stilling liqoir
    Villages become sanctuaries
    Bombed cities repaired
    Forgotten the hate distrust of their neighbour
    Memories buried
    The odd hero story shared while sipping alcohol

    Missing limbs malaria
    Missing persons agencies established
    Years after a brother arrives
    In his ragged infested coat
    A mother is crying her son in her arms
    Suffering has been wholing a country
    Inflicted by madmen
    Poisoned seed spread for years

    Good times did come
    Poverty united
    Rebuild and forget
    A new country became shape

    War Crimes

    You're war-torn,
    And I'm battle-damaged,
    I don't know what to do.
    I am not the enemy,
    I just wear the uniform.
    The flag of truce hangs ripped and worn,
    I reach out my hand,
    I can't make you take it,
    I try to say something,
    But it all comes out in Russian.
    I don't know how to make you understand.
    Would you understand my tears?
    I came to say the war was over.
    To stand down.
    To go home.

    Reunion

    If you let me in again
    I will make a promise
    An oath to God to love myself
    While loving you regardless
    Time has passed
    Healing the wounds
    We sustained while living in the darkness
    What year is it again?
    Your voice takes me back
    To when we first met
    At the bar in July
    That hot summer night
    I feel a jolt
    Be still, my heart
    My stomach flips
    As a warmth travels down through it
    Excitement
    Attraction
    Automatic reaction
    How are you lately?
    How so do you feel?
    You are ecstatic
    Because I'm here
    Sober
    Healthy
    Full of life
    Loving
    Balanced
    You take me in for an embrace
    My arms are wrapped around your neck
    My head is lying against your chest
    I close my eyes
    The rhythmic beat of your heart
    Is my favorite song of all
    Excuse me, but
    I'm still in love
    The silence is a blessing
    Keeps my secret safe and secured
    Or is the silence just a curse?
    A wall too tall to reach the top
    No way to break through it at all
    The fear of a love that's unrequited
    The fear of falling back into old habits
    I shed these tears
    Without answers
    Quietly
    But my body trembles
    Overwhelmed with emotion
    I am shaking even harder
    Both embarrassed and afraid
    Will he feel awkward?
    Will he pull away?
    I feel stupid and pathetic
    Knowing that I've ruined this
    Revealing what's been obvious
    But left unsaid regardless
    I won't say a fucking word
    These tears
    They speak for themselves
    And while they could mean anything
    He knows the truth
    I know this too
    And suddenly
    I am sobbing uncontrollably
    Into his shirt
    A loud outburst
    That pleads
    That begs
    That protests
    That defends against what will come next
    Rejection
    Disappointment
    And sympathy
    In place of any empathy
    To protect himself from me
    My eyes are squeezed
    Tightly shut
    In his shirt
    I don't want to catch his gaze
    See his face
    In fact, I want to run away
    Hopelessly, I try to move
    He pulls me closer
    Tightening his hold
    Embracing me as if he will never let go
    His face now buried in my hair
    I'm crushed against him
    Desperation settles here
    Covering us with the fear
    Of letting go
    Of missing this
    The love that's lasted between us
    Through the thickest
    Through the thinnest
    Through the absence
    And the distance
    This love that saved us both from the Hell
    From slowly killing each other through it all
    The love that reunited us
    Overwhelming and miraculous
    These tears cleansing us of doubt
    Restoring hope
    Healing wounds
    Inflicted by the demons of our toxic past
    A venomous grudge
    That can't outlast
    The love we share
    The truth it brings
    To our lives
    Weighs so much more than the petty lies we once fell for
    This moment ties it off
    The open ends
    The bleeding limb
    The tourniquet
    To save us from separation
    To reconcile and become as one
    Through this encounter
    Under God

    What atonement do you expect from me to reconcile?
