THANK YOU

 

If I could give my birthday a title or a name, it would be Memories Unlimited. Thanks for giving me beautiful memories that I am going to cherish for a lifetime.

The best thing about my new age is that, there are no debts to repay; otherwise, I’m sure I’d be in the hole with you because millions of people like you couldn’t miss my birthday.

Thanks for the truckloads of your warm wishes. Friends and families like you are people I can always depend on. How did I get so lucky to have a friend like you? I’ve always felt so loved and appreciated by you.

 Thanks for sticking by me even on my birthday. You make me pity the people who don’t celebrate birthdays. I’m sure their lives must be void of gems like you.

Cheers buddy!

THE BIRTHMARK

fb_img_1485946790044

Our birth right is keeping that African look

One that mar our root

That which conquer confidence

 To be privileged is to belong to a family that wand to tradition

A kinfolk of wise-hood

To live the legacy, you ought to keep it natural

Detest this and I will label you an alien

Are you shy to walk the custom?

Get out of the way;

The progenies of today want to replicate superiority

the complexion you shy away

Say no to skin bleaching and a big one to hair peroxiding

Discoloring the erection of the hair is sin

A slur to God’s conception

Devour from damaging your natural tresses and twig to your curls

The time is now

Why disfigure beauty for cinders?

YEAR INVENTORY

2016 has been a tough year with so many challenges and unpleasant experiences. All of that and more. Though most of them were as a result of my shortsightedness, I do not regret what the past has taught me, I only regret the precious time I spent with the wrong people. And so, as the year comes to an end, I would like to go back to the drawing board to check what I couldn’t do right, pick up the pieces and start putting the puzzle together before 2017 comes to meet me.

LINES & QUOTES

 If your day sneaks behind your back, would you greet it as though it’s an old friend or an enemy?

 You get to know a person by how they get to treat you when they don’t need you anymore.

 Stumbling upon memories I have been meaning to forget.

 When a man takes interest in a lady’s finances, it’s because he likes the woman. What a world, no one likes to help unconditionally anymore.

 There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it.

 A clear eyes and a pure heart can’t lose anything good.

 ”Between memories and reality, there are awkward discrepancies” – Eileen Chang.

 “If you ask me what I want, I will tell you. I want everything” – Kathy Acker.

 If you want to wait for the moment when everything is okay and ready, you would never begin anything.

 Never forget. To love and to be loved. To simplify what is complicated. To seek beauty in the saddest places. But most especially, to try to understand.

 I asked for clarity and you fed me with fiction. What a bed full of deception.

 Never annoy a writer, they can put you in a book and kill you. Words are their sword and toxic pills. Be advised.

 Out of the ashes, I rise with a brave heart and I eat pain like air.

 “All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe it to my angel mother” – Abraham Lincoln.

 “Our deepest fear is that, we are powerful beyond measure” – Marianne Williamson.

 “There comes a time when the World gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what its saying.” – Sarah Dessen

 “Tell me what you pay attention to and I will tell you who you are.” – José Ortega y Gasset

 We are forever finite, forever fooling ourselves otherwise. We share this air if only for a moment, and sometimes a moment is more than enough – Jacob Ibrag

 “Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” – C.G. Jung

 “What is family? They were the people who claimed you. In good, in bad, in parts or in whole, they were the ones who showed up, who stayed in there, regardless. It wasn’t just about blood relations or shared chromosomes, but something wider, bigger. We had many families over time. Our family of origin, the family we created, and the groups you moved through while all of this was happening: friends, lovers, sometimes even strangers. None of them perfect and we couldn’t expect them to be. You can’t make any one person your world. The trick was to take what each could give you and build your world from it – Sarah Dessen

 Empty sobs solarizing and thinking endlessly about things that were of no importance in my life. I like the messy thoughts though- the mess and the fun of it. A sick child can just not get a little laugh over simple mischief – afyakiss

PENIEL 2016

Your grace and mercy, brought me through
I’m living this moment because of You
I want to thank You, and praise You too
Cos your grace and mercy, brought me through

Thank You, for saving a sinner like me
To tell the world that salvation is free
There were times when I just couldn’t do right
But You watched over me
All day and night

Your grace and mercy, brought me through
I’m living this moment because of You
I want to thank You, and praise You too
Your grace and mercy, brought me through

Justice demanded, that I should die
But grace and mercy said oh, no, oh, no, oh no,
we’ve already paid the price
I once was blind, but thank God I can see
It was because grace and mercy came along and rescued me

Your grace and mercy brought me through
I’m living this moment because of You
I want to thank You and praise You too
Your grace and mercy
Your grace and mercy
Your grace and mercy
Brought me through

This year, I resolve to;
Live with Intentions
Walk to the Edge
Listen Hard and More
Practice more Wellness
Study enough and continue to Learn
Choose with no Regrets
Appreciate and show more Gratitude
Do more of what I Love and
Live as if this is all there is. But above all, I want to Thank and Praise God because; I’m living this moment because of HIM. Hence, the lyrics
Your Grace And Mercy– by Mississippi Mass Choir

2015 THRILLS

As we take our final steps in 2015, I pray the night be divine
For we have had our share of the year. I don’t know about you but God favored me
He turned denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity
My character, my integrity and even my faith in Christ were questioned and tested
I can’t help it but give HIM the glory through words of praise
Till we hear the voice of 2016 ring @ 12am midnight
I bet the birds will sing out the glory of the New Year in exaltation
For there’s endless possibilities in the moves we are yet to take.

And if this heart of mine is right, by the time the night of 2015 is over,
the stars are going to shine on every dead situation, sorrow, pain and losses
And when the morning of 2016 finally comes;
It’s gonna find us all together in a love and laughter that has just begun.
I speak life and prosperity; and I even speak health.
I loose blessings in heaven and on earth for your sake

Till then, let’s take a slow and easy ride into the New Year
Only lay back and let prayer take us over
For across the bridge, there will be no more sorrow or pain
The sun will surely shine across the river and we will never be unhappy again
See you all in 2016! It cradles we hope.

This write-up is dedicated to God Almighty, DR. Edward Felix Dwumfour of the World Bank- Nairobi and to all my Loyal Readers here. I say a “Big Thank You” to you all for making 2015 a success for me. I wouldn’t be here without your support. You turned what I have into enough and more. I appreciate you.

S.H.N.K.O – THAT’S MY FRIEND!

He’s a funny / interesting / and a funky guy
He likes to sigh for a long haul and hug his ass off
He doesn’t take much to set him off
Just a word or two will be just enough for him
He might not be the best, but he’s no too bad
And that’s okay cos I call him my friend

He’s a feisty guy who likes to drive in his earthly ride
He’s usually the first to arrive in terms of appearance
He’ll cuss out every hole on the road just to hang out with loyal friendz
You sometimes wonder if he’ll explode or not; most especially
when reckless road users try to mess him up on the road
Despite the years and skills he has acquired driving
He still drives happily though he may look mad / bored / or sad
And that’s okay cos I still see him as my friend

He’s a stubborn guy set in his way
He works real hard and loves to play too
Looks like he has always been fearless all his life
Headstrong enough to face any strife
He’s a solid man who stands his ground
A better friend cannot he found
I could be biased but he’s all I have seen….lol
And that’s okay cos I will always call him my friend

But one thing isn’t okay with me when it comes to this gutsy guy
and that’s cos he’s still not married
Another discussion for another day, he will put it
And till then, I’d prefer to see the world outside;
through his misty glass heart
That way, he’ll remain forever young in my pretty watery eyes
S.H.N.K.O –that’s my friend!
