Random Poem:

Nairobi Alien

Nairobi Bluz
Its crazy over here,
Going to see families I haven't seen in a decade.
My life temporarily shutdown
And my dad's permanently approaching an end.
And here I was contemplating the beginning of my future
So I can be... the best that I could be...
Now I understand migratory travel
Like the bird migrating to her comfort zone,
Unlike the bird scenting warm climate
For a decade unable to bridge the divide
Stuck within this cold weather.
To be no longer an alien,
We arrive  in Sunshine Nairobi!
