Case Study – On my Way by Kirui Frank Junior (19th January 2015)

On the way I come

Highway that jam

Fumes and smoke

Outskirts of a town

Worries and strain

Cars up and down

Headache a spark!

I call it my travel

Inside a matatu van

Heating and boiling us

Or me

I be specific

No music to flow

This is turning rough

Maybe

Next time

I should be on my person

 

Written by Kenyan poet Kurui Frank Junior, this poem describes the experience of travelling in a matatu. To read more of Kurui’s work check out his HelloPoetry profile.
