Once again welcome to the Mwenemugamba Friday Poetry series where I give you nothing but the best pieces from The Un-Born spoken word album by yours truly Joseph Daniel Sukali. Today’s episode is the season finale of season two. I have abruptly cut the series because from next Monday, I will be celebrating my first book’s anniversary and I will be sharing two chapters every week ( follow the link to like have exclusive details on the book reading https://web.facebook.com/Dealing-with-a-Heartbreak-A-Health-Relationship-Guide-101432485004129/ ).Out of the ten pieces from the album, I have only shared 5 pieces and the remaining 5 will just be part of the album which will be made available pretty soon. Thank you for the love and support, it has been amazing. Season 3 will come your way next year as I will be giving you my third album. Be on the look for the Un-Born album, I’m certain you can tell how fire the album is from the sneak peek you have had with the 5 pieces I have shared. Have a great weekend and happy new month.


Written by Joseph Daniel Sukali

I know I should have come earlier in your life, am deeply sorry for that
Am sorry that I wasn't there when you needed a lover for the first time
I wasn't there to give you the first kiss and cuddle with your virgin emotions in your early teens 
I'm sorry I wasn't there to save you from all the boys who came in your life just to play with you
They treated your body with disgrace and bruised your soul at a tender age,
Am sorry I wasn't there when they broke your heart and used you like your feelings were recyclable 
Am sorry for what you went through to become the person you are now
But am not sorry for the person that you are 
Your past is none of my business, I love and adore what I see now, not what made you
Am sorry for the wounds you endured, your scars are just tattoos of wisdom and maturity
Because in my eyes you're black excellence in all its essence 
A queen with a golden heart and diamond soul, a woman of impermeable dignity and integrity
My personal holy Trinity, Best Friend, sister and lover
You are everything I have always wished for in a lifetime partner 
So am not sorry that I chose you in your brokenness 
I'm not sorry that I see beauty and confidence in your insecurities and fear to walk this love journey with me
I am not sorry for wanting to hold your hand till heavens smile in blessing
For you are perfect to me with all your imperfections
You are beautiful, you make celestial bodies look ugly
The moon, the sun, the stars don’t outshine your beauty when you smile
So smile babe till angels get jealous of you one of their own
For I know for sure, if Angels visited earth they would borrow your body just to look as gorgeous as you
You must have bribed the creator to take so much time on you                                                  
You must have bribed the creator to take so much time on you       

And I bet God is proud of his masterpiece whenever he looks at you
That's why am not sorry to lose myself just to find you
I'll put you first and smile at my losses just to see you drown in tears of joy at wins I gave up my life for
If my tears make you smile I will cry an ocean for you
Whatever it takes to make my woman melt with joy
That's why am here right now massaging your heart with these honest words like a cardiac surgeon
I am not sorry that I want to kiss you good night just to kiss you good morning the next day everyday
I want to careless your haunted beautiful soul every chance I get
I want to whisper a beat in your heart every second I touch your melanin soaked skin
I want to ignite Goosebumps all over your soul
That's why I need all of you, your brightest and your darkest
I want not just a wife in you but a pillar to lean on at my weakest
Be my beacon of hope
So am not sorry that I want to sink in the depth of your energy vibrations and let our souls make love by simply gazing into each other’s hearts
Am not sorry that I want to kiss you with a smile from a distance
Am not sorry that I want to kiss you with a smile from a distance  

Hold you in my arms with the sound of my voice
So please hold me undoubtedly closer just like you hold your faith about the next life
Keep me in your mind like the fear of hell
And smile to my presence like you're on heaven's door
I know you know by now that I would stop my heart whenever
Just to have yours beating forever and not be sorry about it
I could cut my chest open just to let you see my heart bleed the love it holds for you
I am not sorry I had you caged with my love a little while ago
Like a little bird you wished to fly and see the world
So I let my guard down and allowed you to fly
I had to let go so that you would truly appreciate what my heart holds for you
Am not sorry that I met other people or that you met others too
It has helped me understand better what you mean to me and am sure it did to you too
You're my figure of idolatry, I worship you 
Heaven knows you're my favorite sin and am unapologetic about it
From the deepest part of my heart, and my awakened conscious mind
I know am unapologetic about us I know am not sorry. Am not sorry that I Love You.
