CORRUPTION

CORRUPTION

Our worst enemy has sworn to be a friend,

What we shouldn’t do is now being a trend,

Values are bought as the morals descend,

Was this integrity that we longed to defend?,

Corruption,our lifetime destruction.

 

Victims sold to be suspects,

Bribes, are no more done in secrets,

I have to pay to be employed,

My judgment is determined by the depth of my wallet,

Corruption,our lifetime destruction.

 

The rich are the law makers,

While the poor are the law breakers,

Corruption has made prison walls known by the innocent poor,

While the rich are freed before they meet the prison door,

Corruption,our lifetime destruction.

 

Bribe for a pass,

Bribe to be in class,

Bribe to be freed,

Bribe to be employed,

Corruption, our lifetime destruction.

 

You are not guilty,

Cause you have a fat wallet,

You drop the starlet,

Carry the scarlet,

Cause she gat money on her wallet,

Corruption, our lifetime destruction.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

I could still feel the warmth in your arms,

and remember the days you protected me from harms,

its your smile that i first met when i came to the world,

it was your beauty that i first felt when my eyes couldn’t see the world,

when i knew not a speech, your love made me call you mamaa.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

THERE IS HOPE

THERE IS HOPE

           

If you’ve ever thought that your life is one of the worst ones, when everything seems falling, at times you blame God for all that is happening, the times when you meet the tough and think you are facing the worst in life than anyone else, and thoughts of suicide linger your mind, having false hopes that when you vacate out of this life maybe everything is going to be fine, or you think of giving up and let failure take advantage of your weakness….

 

Then you are wrong cause there are millions of people out there who wish they had the life you have, but they don’t, there are many out there who wish they could walk like you, eat like you but they can’t, but nothing has ever stolen their smiles, they hope for the Dawn even when their skies lack signs of light,

 

In life, it’s not about how many times it hits you, it’s about the times it hits you hard but you find more courage to make a step and move to your Ambitions.

 

I will tell you a story of a young boy whose past was full of Dreams that never met its Future… Whose dreams were shattered by the people he thought cared most of his Future. But he could still afford hope.

 

On one of our Monthly visits with “SOMEONE LIKE ME ORGANIZATION” an organization formed in Mombasa, Kenya aimed at empowering and shading the light of hope to less fortunate kids,

 

On our visit at a special School we met this boy on a wheelchair seated quietly with a friend, the only person he trusted in his world, we couldn’t interact or do anything with him without involving his friend… There was a bond between them, Love was felt how they exchanged their hearty smiles, portrayed a sense of hope on their faces that buried behind the worst the past had offered him. The hearty smiles that painted happiness on their faces covered the gallons of tears that were milked by their past.

 

At the first sight we knew nothing about him, but his reactions made us curious to know more about him, he could smile to his friend, laugh with him but to us, a stare was the only thing we could exchange with him, an assistant at the school later told us about his story that leaked tears from our eye.

 

At age 12, John (not his real names) the ambitious young boy with anticipations of a brighter future lived with his parents, he had dreams of reaching the skies, dreams of soaring high, if we can recall that age when we had fresh dreams on our minds those that the futures awaited us to fulfil, the “when I grow up i want to be a” kind of dreams.

 

But all this were shattered, at age 13 when he lost his mum and forced to walk the rest of the journey of life with his dad, who later betrayed him, the only person the world had left with to trust, he was raped by his dad, the man he looked up to, the man he had faith in took all his dreams and ambitions out of him, this made him loose hope, the world was now hell, this kept on happening, the fear of exposing his secret wounds made him weak, hopeless, insecure, he knew if he could tell anyone about it, maybe worse may happen to him.

 

But luckily enough some good Samaritans came to his rescue, the incident was reported and his dad was arrested and jailed, John was rushed to the hospital, the doctors later reported that parts of his private part were badly damaged (I won’t talk about this in detail cause am not familiar with the doctor stuffs).and he was to undergo surgery, he underwent the surgery and even other several surgeries but nothing could bring John back to his normal life.

 

John was sent to a special school, life was different there, his condition too wasn’t that Good but the school took good care of him.

 

Today John spends his time in a wheelchair, his trust to people broken, the only person he now trusts most is his friend who is also a special kid in the school, John can’t go to the loo like others, his incontinent problem  has made the assistants in the school to use diapers on him, but John still has signs of hope on his smiles you could tell how he still has hope that someday he will come across the light and be able to reach to the skies he hoped for.

 

He didn’t just give up, after all that happened he still lives with hopes of a brighter future, one man once said,

“Never let the experience of your past compromise the quality of your future, your background can break the backbone of your future, never allow that to happen”

 

In whatever has hit you in life. Never lose hope for tomorrow keep hoping for a brighter light, trust in GOD and he is going to lead you through all, make you strong and give you a new beginning.

 

For John I wish him all the best in life may the lord see him through all he hopes to achieve in life. Amen.

 

I will find out more about John (not his real names) and find out if there are ways we can help him live his normal life.

Hope and Faith

Hope and Faith

 

There a times in life, when you wake up one morning and feel so depressed but you look around and everything seems to be alright..you are perplexed by the feeling deep inside of you.

You feel there is something you want to let go or one thing you feel to hold on to, but you aint sure of what it is.

 

We meet and face alot in our day to day lives from the cup of coffee in your kitchen to the spoons you meet on that lunch table and that candle u see glowing on your dinner table…. They are simple things but they make an impact in making the day complete,

U can choose not to meet them but that doesn’t make them not to exist in your life. Cause if you once met them, there sure gonna meet you again.

 

But even when you meet the tough and forced to go through rough ways as you climb mountains in life…there has always been  two friends  who will sacrifice all to have your back… But you have to let them in, so as to help you get through.

Hope and faith have always been great friends, with faith am assured my achievements are evident and hope has always made me look forward for more achievements.

Faith makes me believe in my potential, cause am assured of my success,

 

Faith will never show me the way to success when am seated or sleeping, faith needs me to stand, make a step and walk as it leads me through mountains to get to success,

Hope on the other Hand ignites my virtuous desire to reach to my future expectations and all that God has Promised to fulfill in our lives,,,in every step I take with faith.

 

Where does faith comes from? How will I find hope?.Faith comes from hearing the word (Romans 10:17)..in the beginning there was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God,(John 1;1)……..so from my understanding faith comes from God and faith is God.

Hope is the confident expectation of the future changes that God has promised, but that are not yet seen, which, One strongly desires and for which he eagerly awaits.

We need them both inorder to make it to success, both to our spiritual destinations and to our future social success.

 

Let hope inspire you and make you confident, confident in expecting more of what God has planned for you,,,,,he says,“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11)

 

Let faith motivates us to be assured, of gaining the things we hope for and hold it as an evidence of the things we don’t see.

 

And they all come from the Lord,

Ask and they shall be given unto you,

 

Be Blessed..

I’ll Trust in You

I’ll Trust in You

The times when my heart grows weaker,

When making a decision becomes harder,

When i lack tears to cry,

As my happiness goes dry,

I will trust in you,

Even when my nights are mare,

And my veins tremble in fear,

Days seem darker,

Hurts becomes my stalker,

I will trust in you,

When i walk through the valley of the shadows of death,

I will hold unto you as my breath,

Cause Jesus you my Life,

And a comforter in my grief,

I will trust in you

I wouldn’t be afraid cause you always with me,

In Isaiah 41:10 thats what you said to me,

Do not be dismayed cause i am your Lord,

You hold me right, gave me your word as my sword,

I will trust in you,

Even when everything falls apart,

When troubles grow fat,

I will always trust in you Lord.

My apology

My apology

If at once i made you cry,

Or my acts took away your smile,

Then am so Sorry,

Maybe i was too Carey,

Too Carey to understand what you needed,

Even when your happiness bleeds,

But my intentions are to see you happy,

I did, thinking all that will make you happy,

They say too much of something is poisonous,

Maybe my intentions overdosed you to hurtfulness,

Maybe it was never done the way you wanted it too,

When i was busy feeding you with all the treats.

Trying to drag you out for dates,

Forgetting,cuddling at home was all you wanted to,

The times i could whisper in your ears,

How much i love you boo,

And forget to whisper on your fears,

How much i mean to you,

Am so Sorry,

Sorry for forcing you to imagine my presence when i wasn’t there,

Sorry for the times i blew the kiss,

When you needed my lips,

Sorry for the empty promises,

That seemed to favour me in your hearts premises,

With no intentions of fulfilment,

They were Just  phony statements,

Am Sorry, forgive Me.
