Waiting on Time

let’s not self-deceive
imagining a lack of time is why we haven’t obtained certain achievements
because we cannot create extra time
but we can all certainly allocate some for personal development

and when we’ve done what it takes
and given our best
without doubt we’ll develop self-confidence

so let’s be the energy that attracts good
but let’s remember, even that too, requires giving our bodies and minds the right food

above all, let’s find the sublime in the anodyne
for there’s no such thing as waiting on time


Silent Strategies & the Echoes of Execution

the Kelly criterion was his formula of choice for sizing bets
when dealing with the collective illusion of current versus future value
and so he approached his goals and endeavours with purpose backed by labour
to avoid being like the futurist who knew too little of the past he purported to be projecting

took the gold and the silver
all the gems and all the pearls
and in return gave them paper
some dollars and yen
sterling and yuan
but that made no difference
for it was all the same

same scheme
same game
since way back when Kublai Khan reigned
which meant that the battle had already been won

Summer in Azania (ii)

Seagulls glide above the aquamarine waters
As the sun sinks into the ocean
Orange hues on the horizon
Walkers on the promenade in close quarters

Out in the open
Nature’s backdrop
Lovers holding hands
Summer romance

Hustlers & Hymns

take charge of your money bud
and never trust the big banks like these chumps
hell, getcha a lil’ Bitcoin or some…
and if that’s not aligned with your risk appetite then rather bury some in the dust
whatever you need to do to protect your wealth

as one must

just saying… don’t be part of the bail-in, I’m tellin’ ya son!

heard that…

just the other day
Jerome was in the media house


yeah man
and guess what?

he was watching his mouth?

you’re damn right, he was!

(together) awww! (chuckles)

been telling you since day
the Fed ain’t got the answers man

too true!

but we still gotta put the little we have to work and double up

on God!

believe that!
just flip to Matthew 25 verses 14 to 30 and you’ll see

say no more, let’s get it!

A Song for Alyssa

a soft breath of wind
escapes your sweet lips
everytime you smile

and your pretty eyes
have a golden glint
that lights up my life

so when the sky is tint
keep in mind that sunset dips
bring tomorrow’s sunshine

you’re forever on my mind
so I’m playing for keeps
hoping this lasts a lifetime

Civilisation Under Reconstruction

with originality as the new currency of value
maybe habits won’t be mistaken for continuity or consistency

you see – they still like tiaras and carats
but don’t subscribe to romantic love or marriage
and who’s to say there’s anything wrong with that?

look – they consider pedigree over character
shadows over skeletons
shallows over depths
but what if they are right for it?

besides, is any instance of creation everlasting?

Fresh is Familiar

yearning, longing, craving
when emotions flow through the crevices
of a hardened heart

the all too familiar feeling
when searching for the missing pieces
or seeking a fresh start
