To Be Modern

To Be Modern

New age illusion
To be modern;
What we get?
A run in a circle;
What remains?
A tortured soul,
AND
No bridge to take ahead or back

Not Again by Hussein Kinoko

I remember I saw a flowery tree with a hive hanging.

A golden Jelly of honey was draining down to the ground and it caught me up.

I went for it with no caution that bees might sting me, I showed my face barely and I got stung badly. I swear not again

Bees seemed polite, humble and gentle. I gave my beautiful hand for them to land, bees are painted with black and yellow stripes, the bees are beautiful indeed but very grievous. I swear not again

It hurts when you get Stung and you never tasted their Honey, that’s devastating.

But sometimes it’s better you get stung and taste the honey, that’s teaching.
I swear not again.


Life by Hussein Kinoko

Sadly Walking along the long beach.
Hardly thinking what life still has to teach.
Life will still suprise you even if you saw Jesus preach.
Time changes and so life, where is Martin Luthers Jr’s speech?

People get hurt and lose hope to love again.
People fear to start and fail to cope with the pain.
Its all Life, have faith and move on again and again.
Bury the pain and strive, its the only way to sustain.

Life can make you be anything, notably begins with you.
Life can give you everything, amazingly out of no clue.
Life can take away everything, and hold you back stuck on glue.
Life give chances, when you fall in one try the two.

People Lose jobs, ornaments and lovely relatives.
Others get jobs, achievements and money archives.
Its all life, peoples circumstances are all reciprocal.
Everything emerges, have faith and trust Gods Plans.

2 Versions of Hmm by Gonsalves Mpili and Jenny Kim

A circumcised sigh,

Came out and blew up my face,

I looked dehydrated.

 

It wasn’t stress,

The sun was sympathetic to me,

The option it gave me,

Was to burn my skin,

As if i was an iceberg,

In an ocean melting down into pieces,

 

I am poor

Yet the sun promotes it’s product,

Even if I had money to buy the product,

I wouldn’t bother,

The sun’s heat is free like air,

Such a product should be condemned to a cooking school,

Hmm.

 

Hmm is the sound I make when in doubt,

Doubt that turns into anxiety,

In a moment that I realize,

The only option is to put aside the doubt,

And let whatever is to happen, happen.

 

A thought deep in my subconscious,

A thought of satisfaction,

A revelation of beauty,

It could be anything,

Good or bad,

Sweet or sour,

Pain or desire,

And at that moment no words can explain,

But hmm makes the perfect fitting.

Setting My Soul Free by Jennifer Kim

When i learnt to let go,

It was like breaking out through a corned bush,

It seemed scary and undaring,

I thought of how the thorns would bruise my skin,

But then again staying inside the corned bush,

I felt alone and broken,

I then thought of the freedom, joy and happiness that was just a corn fence away,

And in that moment i went through,

I never felt the pain of the bruises because what drove me was of much more power in the inside

Than what i felt on the outside and now with all these bruises,

I am free and happier and in time i know the bruises will disappear.

Our Rights, Our Freedom Always by Jacquline Kamwamu & Adam Anthony

Because I’m only human,

I want to grow up,

I want to grow up regarded as free,

Free to think and express opnions without fearing torture or detention,

And I don’t want to be a slave, all I want is to be free.

 

 

We are all born equal, you, me and everyone,

Our rights are not limited here, they apply everywhere,

Because we also have a right to free movement,

No one can take our rights away, they are protected by the law.

 

 

My life is only meaningful when my rights are respected,

The right to live and to be protected,

To enjoy the right to education and right to basic needs,

To freely vote and vote and to be voted in the elections,

I’ve a right to my privacy, marriage and family,

And I have all these for free, my rights are not for sale.

Don’t Stop Looking by George Kyomushula

Don’t stop looking for love that has emptied in your soul child gauge / don’t stop looking for someone who will love you and give love that will full tanked your love gauge / don’t stop looking for peace and harmony, out from this world barbed wire which formed in countries, divided by countrymen as concentration camps /

Don’t stop looking for the bread to feed your kids, no matter how the slave masters whom changed named into bosses, whoop you with whips of taxation, insurances, fees and penalties /

Don’t stop looking for your bloodlines under the lost tribes of Kemett / don’t stop looking for your inner self, whom you could be apart from snorting and whoring / don’t stop looking for cure of your diseases, cause anything that has negativity must have positivity /

If there is a cause, there must be a reasons and whenever there’s reason ,there could be formulas and when there are reasoned formulas there should be a solution /

Its like metaphysics, keep looking what you are looking as for sorrow and sadness antibiotics /

Keep looking for it, giving up its a crime so strive to achieve it/ keep looking for the right spouse /

Keep looking for the meals of your landlord after you have your meal so he could also has his meal by you enabled paying your bill /

Keep looking for your guardian angel, keep looking the possible means of how you will get untied from rope that strangle your hopes /

Keep looking your beauty on that mirror, embrace the God’s creation don’t change anything into you, based on what you like to see from others / keep looking for your inner beauty, soul or mind / keep looking../

Starship_Troopers_Bande_Originale

Zoe Poledouris – I Have Not Been To Paradise

Uh-hmmm. Remember Paul Verhoeven’s seminal kinda anti-war kinda pro-militarism kinda whatever-you-want epic Starship Troopers? The one which combined going apeshit with batshit crazy surrounding. OK, so there was a prom scene. Where hero decides that he has nothing else to do but enlist and get hogtied on propaganda. You can hear a David Bowie song in the background. From the then-recent album OUTSIDE.

It was covered by Zoe Poledouris, daughter of Basil Poledouris who did the score for the film (she also did another  song for the film titled “Into It“). It follows closely the original with a little twist – two words (and thus the whole meaning) were changed: instead of “Oxford Town” there’s “Paradise”. Because anti-war satire can’t be subtle but can be neat. And it adds a nice stroke to a bigger picture of the world which had gone mad with absurdly distorted  concepts of honor, dignity and common sense.

Enjoy.
