Love, Hope and Fidelity
Like wine, let our love mature with time
For time tells the tales of time.
Like a seed, let our hope shoot out
For, from a shoot, fruits shoot out.
Like light, let our fidelity brighten our journey
For our destiny needs a bright journey

“The Genesis” was anthologized in The Time Traveller of Maravi: New Poetry
from Malawi. His other poem “Letters to a Comrade” is published online in
India on www.openroadreview.in. He believes that there is a thin line between
fiction and reality. All that people write is a re-creation of what is already
known to the writer and exists not only in the mind of the writer but also
outside the writer, therefore, fiction is actually facts written as if they are
not facts. He is married to Angella, and they have two daughters Mary Magdalena
and Princess Cleopatra.
