I live in a beautiful town where lots of people want to live and for that reason its very expensive and and very transient. I spent years moving from place to place and was homeless a few times. When I became pregnant I made a promise to myself and the unborn seed inside me that I would fight like a lioness to achieve building my own home a safe haven where no one could move us. That child brought an intense drive and fire to my belly and against all odds we made it happen. I named him Chilli :))


Yes you brought the fire within me
And now I found that which was in me
Yes you brought the fire within me

Realised, I couldn’t do what I wanted to
Came the time for the big review
Think of you
I’m not one but two
Moving out and I’m moving new
No more standing in housing queues
build a yard based on my virtues
Found the roots that will see us through
The seed was planted and

You brought the fire within me
Yes you brought the fire within me

When I stop and think what I’ve done
stop and look at what I’ve become
did what they said couldn’t be done
Not a place where I will succumb
I’m the Queen-this is my Queendom
Now I finally found my rhythm
Yes I feel the beat to my drum
Found a place I feel I belong
Found a place that I can call home

Msilale (lale) wanawake (women rise up)

With the wisdom handed to me
Shared amongst the family tree
Bring the fruits impart them on thee
As you move along your journey
Live your life this is your legacy
And the cycle loops infinitely
Know you’re blessed protected you will see
And rejoice that you can be free
Always close I promise I will be

I pray you have the fire within you
the purpose of your soul

Napenda kukuona mpenzi wangu ni furaha
Ya moyo wangu moyo wangu ya (I love you, you are the joy of my heart)

Mwanamke ni chachu ya maendeleo, (a woman is an important part of any development) eyram (he has blessed me)

Msilale (lale) wanawake

Yes You brought the fire within me
and now I find that which was in me
coz you forced me to be true
