The Skin

Meshack Bwoyele Keya 1960 (Vihiga)



Everyone lives in a skin so tidy.
A skin tightly woven round the body.
Should we ever skin a human,
Hidden under will be secrets hard to scan.
What are your actions in the past?
Name your behaviour so worst.
Forgiveness are too hard to request.
We may die in our evil quest.

No mistake is too hard to repent.
No case too complicated to present.
You need no defenfing advocate.
No scene of crime one need to locate.
From your heart be your submission.
Do it with a vision and a mission.
One will save his conscience.
And be able to stand innocent in his presence.
