Achieng' Ochieng' Poems
A New Start
</>We cry about yesterday’s pain and get scared of tomorrows uncertainties But we forget today’s laughter We dwell on yesterdays loses and stress about tomorrows cares But we forget today’s fulfillments
You Hate me Not
You say you don't hate me, Yet you slum the door at my face! You say you don't hate me Yet your words thrust thro' my heart as a knife to kill me!
</>I was on a journey………. Convinced I had reached my Destination, I stopped Only to find that I was actually in the middle of traffic
Who Is It
To talk to you To make you laugh To put a smile on your face To be your desire; is all I have waited for
I fell, In love with the strength I saw in me through your eyes I fell, In love with the courage I saw in me through your voice
YOU STAND THERE AND WATCH
You stand there and watch! Thinking you are far from it, but truth is you are Lashing out words with ease, caring not about their destination's state For at the bottom of the list, lies your concern
In His Time
It has been the longest and toughest road I've ever had to travel A journey that I took believing I knew my destination, only to find myself in the woods, alone Where the two reassuring voices, urging me on, suddenly became one voice; my voice And it became a lone, painful journey!
Waited In Vain
I wish I was the painting on your wall, Whose color and ambience is a sight you behold, Its texture, a true feel of reality Its perfection, without a question
Just wondering how I got here, In a place where my heart bleeds daily, Where my soul still searches for something it thought it already had A place where comfort turned into extreme discomfort
Because Of Love
Because you love me, you present a rose today And turn it into a thorn tomorrow Because you love me, you caress me today And Slap me tomorrow
I Will Rise
Suffocated with pain, drowning in sorrow But I refuse to die, Exhausted from chasing, beaten with harshness But I refuse to die
It Should Be Different
It should be different For I forgave and I forgot, It should be different For I poured out my heart once again,

A New Start
</>We cry about yesterday’s pain and get scared of tomorrows uncertainties
But we forget today’s laughter
We dwell on yesterdays loses and stress about tomorrows cares
But we forget today’s fulfillments
We get bitter about yesterdays disappointments and worry about tomorrow’s expectations
But we forget today’s joys and opportunities
We lament about yesterdays hunger and wonder about tomorrow’s source
But we forget to appreciate today’s plenty
All we need is ……..
The strength to burry yesterday’s pain
The faith to lay down tomorrows load
The light to ...
