If it is necessary to invest peace

Can I say something?
Some people are strong, and some people are loved,
But if people become peaceful people,
Would they change the world with the influence of peace?

If I want peace, I think I must invest it,
In my mind, in my heart, in my soul, and yes, in my body.

Is Temptation Misleading?

Temptation, I call you with brave words
Why have ye weakened us? Ye know

Hey Temptation, how do you like being like that
I wonder like, how do you like, think thou enjoy
Why have you weakened us? Ye know
Well, through the faith can we stop you, an old spirit

Temptation, I call you with brave words
What are you doing? Can we stop by not attracting you
I wonder like, dare to ask, hear, see, and feel
Who is with who you believe thee shall attract

Hey Temptation, how do you like being like that
Why art ye mislead us away from the Miracle Creator
If we understand Temptation, should we say to him
I wonder, should we say to him, what are you here for

One of the best memories for feeling the love

I sat down on the log,
From a little distance, she glanced at me,
She was flirting with her eyes towards me with her smiles,
Pure connection.

While I sat down on the log,
I saw she told her friends that she wanted to spend time with me,
Because I was about to leave in a half-hour or more,
She came to sit on the log next to me, touching my side.

Our company was great, it was feeling like a sort of magic
That drew me towards her.
I went away from home because I had to go, but a while
After I leave, I texted to her like, “Come and see me tomorrow.”

A small thing to do

I asked myself if I can smile for free,
And my answer was, yes I can smile,
Because if I smile,
I can see the world is starting to smile.

Ask yourself that if you smile for free,
Would you able to see the world starts to smile
Even if it is just a small thing to do so,
Can you make one person smile?

I dare, dare and dare that the smile is free
Yes, I dare, the smile is free!

Did I ask myself, why the serious face?
Why the serious face?
Do you think you have anything to offer?
But why offering a serious face?
Sorry, four question marks, yes, four of them,
But I tell you what I can do, is just
Smile, smile, smile, smile, and smile!
And if you think I am not smiling, offer me your smiles!

The Sunshine will last forever

The sunshine will last forever
Until the end, He knows when
Not one of us know
He knows everything, yeah everything everything
But if thou ask of my mind
I shall ask thee of thy soul
Headache when we don’t want to know
But the sunshine will last forever
Until the world will say, I thought the end
But thou will say, I am wrong, no, we are wrong
Yeah, headache when we don’t want to know
But the truth cannot stay in the secret forever

Remember all of you are very beautiful souls
Heart, body, very sacred
All of you are giving up?
No, no, no
All of you are beautiful souls
All of you
Give up?

The circle of inventiveness – part 2

Good day to you, Wisdom.

Good day to you too.

I heard you bought a house for Provoke.

Yes, I did.

Why Provoke, why out of the sudden it’s him?

Just in case, it is a long story, and I do not want to talk about it.


Can you respect me?

Of course, Wisdom. Please sit down. Hmm, I see that you are very powerful because you are a billionaire man. Why say you will support me as a charity?

Because you are Peace

Aww, Wisdom

I dreamt that one day you will become a king, and then win the world’s throne, the Earth. Then you will be King Peace.

One of the Earth?

Yes, can you do me a favour?

Yes, I can do you a favour because I owe you a thousand times.

Thank you, Peace. Please keep visiting Provoke. He needs you.

Alright, I will do your favour.

Thank you, Peace, when you keep visiting Provoke, I can promise you a little bit, that you may learn a lot from him even if it is overboard.

Yes, Wisdom.

Good to see you. Say, off I go to leave you in grace.

Have a wonderful day!

You too.


How did you find me?

It doesn’t matter. Why didn’t you tell me where you were?

I do not want to wake up your beauty sleep. Oh, you were comfortable.

We are business partners; don’t you remember that?

Forgive me, Mr. Patience.

I forgive you, and you know, Wisdom. Think, we go to see Mountain?

Yes, but do you know where Mountain is? Because I am not very sure.

I have prepared well before I got you here, and I do know where he is.

Can you take us to where Mountain is?

Yes, Wisdom. Let’s go.

Marvelous. How are you?

I am well, thank you. What business does Wisdom have brought Mr. Patience with me? Why is Mr. Patience here? Should not Wisdom be with him, is that right? Oh, it is my spirit that spoke about what was necessary, not say why you have brought him here before me.

It is important.

Provoke? It is about him. What should you try to convince me only if you think so? Do not say I cannot read you. I know you well because you were my apprentice.


Not now, Mr. Patience.

How strange for Wisdom to not share his thoughts with Mr. Patience.

Can I speak?

Should I allow you to let you speak only if you bring Provoke here? Mr. Patience can wait here, and he must obey me until you bring Provoke here. The deal is deal, say what you, Wisdom?

Why she dares

Not now, please, Mr. Patience?  


I accept your deal.

Such a speech of figure

I write, write, and write
My mind said, please don’t stop
Write, write, and write
Don’t waste your words, just write them
Oh, it’s utter interesting
A thousand thoughts that swim other thousand thoughts
I am minding that you are not out of the words
How I like you to try to the perfect English
But you are Deaf
Your English is not your first language
Well, I was minding that you used the Old English
How I liked you to challenge a king of imagination
But well, I will be sure to keep you running of the words
Like a king of wisdom, and his queen of kindness
How is it, you, Deaf who believes in the Miracle?
Goodwill, goodwill, and let me speak more of it
Speak like a wise king, and think like a kind queen
Interesting, is it, isn’t it
Oh, you think I am playing with the words
Should I use Old English as you did before
Should I, should not I?
Well, let me, thou doth think
Anyway, good heart, ye knew
I doth need thy answer if thou know thy good heart
As could a king love his kingdom, or could queen
Around all such a speech of figure
Oh, goodness, such gracious
Not bad for thee to love someone important to thee
But what I am minding for, an answer that glows a diamond
All sort of an ancient food
Oh, ye think, thou understand, yet thee think so?
Such work if food is secret, such key if a secret is a food
How to waste ye think I am to thee
Sometimes you like me, and sometimes you don’t like me
That what a human is?
Ask a king, he might answer, or ask his queen, she might know
Think of the noble knew everything but if
What if the quiet also knew everything and they carry on?
Comfort zone, don’t you think so, do you?
I know how ye look inside me, your mind
What is going on in my mind?
Oh, happen in your brain
Words update, construct and sentence

You have not mastered your temple

Oh, dear the Earth, what can I feel for you? Oh, she said, when will they help me? I know that I am anthropomorphising this planet that we are living on, but nevermind my mind. Oh, forgive the provoking for saying, nevermind, but while I anthropomorphise her, or you would say personification. Anyway, again, excuse me for saying, anyway, but she said, when will they understand what is my role or my duty? They may think I am just a thing that cannot speak for herself, but I tell you that your organs and everything else that functions inside you, they would say that you would not speak for yourself. Why? You have not mastered your temple, body!

My hopeful hands

Translation from South African Sign Language into English

Too many thoughts went through my mind
Words, words, words, and too many words
Feelings, emotions, they make me think
But, I look at my hands for a hope

My hands hold each other
I won’t give up
But, I look at my hand for a hope

Everyone is speaking
The ears are being nagged
The mouths are talking
But, I look at my hand for a hope
