distant relatives

My friend’s family gave me the key to their front door:

My first impression was that of a cat’s: I must have been a very good person to them. Then came the impression of that most suspicious of animals whose name I do not know: maybe I tend to overstay my welcome and by giving me the key, they are using reverse psychology. Many a day I have taken a detour to their house when I could not handle the thought of cooking. At last came the dog: maybe they are just good people; and maybe this is the way I should think of everything good that comes my way. eña melkam silehonin sayhon esu silewededen …

 

My distant relatives have invited me for dinner because today is yesene TSom meyaZa. The funny thing is I don´t even fast. God bless them!

Speaking of Distant Relatives, I have listened to the songs and I think the shit is bangin! And the album art is simple and the colors and the spear are nice:

I was disappointed to read the 50k projections for its first week sales. So I am trying to do my bit in promoting it: what are you waiting for?! go out and get the album; you will love it!   Tilish, you have got to cop it; think of it as a souvenir from your travels.

And besides, some of the money is reportedly going towards building schools in the DRC.

Clear and present danger

Nas and Damian sample Mulatu; and Mo Mooziqa

Sometime ago, we, at andthree were contemplating the possibility of  a Mulatu-DMX joint.

A snippet was leaked a while back from the collabo album distant relatives.

Here is as we enter  a.k.a  afrobeat and has a sample of yegele tizita:

Hope Mulatu got paid for it. I know Nas is going through  baby momma’s drama but Mulatu, get your money man!

Google Chrome rocks! I am working on a connection that IE failed to detect. So, biochemically speaking, chrome has got a higher affinity for internet connection.

If ever

 

I had one wish

 

Then I would have none

 You see, I am getting convinced that nothing or no one is going to make me feel satisfied.Oh! This is supposed to be a poem.Sorry.

Waiting…… …………..   ……………………..  ……………………..         . 

To be that person

To find that person

To get there 

That…there…..!? 

Wondering

 Making friends with Alice 

 

Waiting….. ………………    ……….. ………..        ……………………….

Ambitions to be ambitious 

 

Wait…… before that 

 

Waiting…………………     ………………………………………………..

To know what I got

Whom I got

What I don’t

To know here           

 

Waiting……    …………………………   ………………………  ……..

To be proved wrong

By someone something someplace

Without discontent

Waiting ……….          ….                    …..                       …. .                      ..

To learn 

There is no satisfaction 

Only happiness 

This is it ≠ This is it

                                                                       =    =    

Waiting ……………. ………..          …………………         …..                 …             …..

To fly

To be grounded

 

Waiting …………. ….     .. . ….            . …          .. ..            …..  …………..

For the day 

I will wait no more 

Waiting ………….             ….                      …                     ………………………………….

 For today 

For now 

Now haven’t I written this before? 

But wait………… 

 

Those were prose 

This is not

 ‘tis a POEM 

Ya man! 

‘tis the remix 

Me alongside me

 

So put your hands up  

Like it is a robbery                                         

Give me all you got                                                  

Then again………  

                                                                 Probably…………….                                                                                       

F$%# it!  

                                                                                              From here

 

                                                                                              Look up

 

                                                                                         Hmmmmmmmm

                                                                                                

                                                                                    No rhyme

                                                                                   Reason?                    

                                                        

                                                                                  Look

                                                                                  Way higher

                           

                                                              Only a sense of completion

                                                                                            

                                                                        One entry                          

                                                                         One

                                                                             No, not that one

The one before the one 

   

 

There’s just no rhyme or reason

Only a sense of completion

  

 A verse from Savage Garden’s song I knew I loved you. This song, truly madly deeply and Darren Hayes’ insatiable are quite the ballads. But after he came out, I can not help but wonder if he had a girl or a guy in mind when he sang those songs. No judgment.

  

A verse about helplessness:

  Sometimes I can’t help but feel helpless

I am having daymares at daytime

  

(Nas in Damien Marley’s road to Zion)

   

Someday I may finally get what I am searching for and all my posts would be rosy like “did you see today’s sunset?” Wait, I already have posts on the sun?!  Whatever!

  

Like I said, I very much would like to be disproved; to see if  there is such a thing as achievement.But until then, you will have to put up with my weak ass rhymes.
