Each day I’d wake up to him

And hate turned to love

He wasn’t the man of my dreams

But he made my dreams Come true

He taught me how to fight my demons

And every night I slept

And I would experience the nightmares

He was there

Just to hug me tight

Watch me fall asleep peaceful

Sing to me while holding me

And in the morning

I would wake up to him

And he’d prepare breakfast

And warm my water

And make sure I look stunning

He made me believe in life again

Gave me the strength to look at life in a different point

I’d look at his eyes

And get the courage to live another day

To fight one more day

And one more battle

There was hope born

There was light at the end of my dark tunnel

…..

Because I am the story

The story I never wanted to tell

Not even share to anyone

I am the girl born of a woman

A woman raped that night

So I’m that girl born out of wedlock

Raised by a woman who never loved me

I guess she didn’t have an option

Or maybe she wanted to punish that man

That man who caused her so much pain

And so much shame

That man who cut her dreams short

And she couldn’t live fully anymore

And she was forced to get married

To another man

Or maybe it was her choice

To avoid so many fingers pointed at her

But the man she got married to

Was a beast…😢

I was just 12…

A big girl enough to notice changes

And he would creep in at night

And force me to sleep with him

And it went on for years

And the woman I called mum knew

I guess it was still a punishment

To the man who made me become a being

And I had to run

For my life

Because I’ve never understand

What it meant to be loved

I lived a life full of pain

Resentment, hatred,regrets

……..

Until I met him

Its still hard to explain how

Coz I never thought

There was anyone outside here

That would be a little bit caring

I didn’t think I’d look at any man

They are the reason I went through hell

And I’m still in a doubt

You can’t blame me

That has been my life all along

I’m just trying to rewrite my story

A story that was to be untold…..

 

And each day, He kept on reminding me
Watch out for the people you associate with
They’ll cling so close
Only to learn how they’ll destroy you
They’ll be closest friends but closest enemies
Learn how to love
But don’t attach yourself to them
Because one day they’ll break your heart
And that will rip off your soul
And they’ll be celebrating behind your back

And he went on and on
He wanted to discipline me
And train me to survive alone
At the same time with people
Laugh with those who laugh with you
Cry with those who cry with you
Help those who are always there for you when you are in your lowest moments
And I came to understand about this life we live
It’s a give-give society
No matter how good you are
They will always celebrate those who do bad
Funny Mmmh.. 😕😕
And as for you your mistakes is what they’ll see
Not your good deeds
And this is the society we live in…
………..
Change to us always seem like a past tense…or rather History…

It’s Life…

It’s dark all over
In the middle of the night
But your eyes are still wide awake
The only thing giving you company is the dripping water from your bathroom
Or funny noises from outside which you can’t tell from what…
Your head is full of thousands thoughts
You’ve got worries and fears
About life, love, family, wealth, money and the list is just endless
You wonder why things happen unexpected
Why do things go so wrong
Or why do they happen so fast or slow
Why is it when you are just about to make it something comes up and you have to start from zero
You’ve got so many questions
With no answers or solutions
You are just tired of everything but you realize tomorrow is another day
You’ve got to wake up and resume your normal routine
And just look so okay as if everything is fine
But at the end of it all
We are just human
Or maybe Aliens
Living in a world full of problems and pain
Maybe it’s nature… Destiny.. Fate
Just maybe
But there are things that goes beyond our understanding
We’ve got to live once
Make the best of every little time we got
Or just wait on God
Because God’s timing is the BEST…

Sometimes it really pains me when people treat others like trash. We all know money is good but there are things it will never buy or satisfy. Someone said the best things are for free, at some point it makes sense the sun, rain, breeze, Wind, Love we all get it freely. Why should you make someone work for you for a period of time expecting for a salary only for you as the boss to end up saying he /she is incompetent. In the first place, why did you have to wait for that long for you to end up not doing your part. Where is the conscious of you people, employers, bosses?? Do you imagine yourself in that situation keeping in mind your bills, your kids, wife or whatever you were to use, using that salary and now it hits you hard that you won’t be able to do all those plans yet you worked so hard to get that Cash. It really Pains, how many marriages are broken, relationships, hatred between people just because of the broken promises caused by the salary you never paid. How many people go through depression just because you decided to kill their hopes. I believe at some point, you will get a dose of your own not just directly and by then the experience will be your best teacher though it might be too late for you to work things out. You are just not so special than others it’s just by the Grace of God. So please can we learn to be humble and treat people with respect.

WHERE IS JUSTICE??

Down in those streets ,I walk everyday
Memories haunting me ,Day and night
Each other day is never different
I’ve become familiar
With all streets and routes
Because that’s where I call home.

It’s been years since they left
Those who were close to me
Those who cared about me
The pictures never faded
How it all happened ,Is what hurts most
The screams of help,the pain in their voice
Those eyes shading the last tears

That fateful night
When those people showed up
Demanding for what was never theirs
What they termed as their property
Mama couldn’ just watch
But within her first screams
She was hardly hit
Groaned for minutes in pain
And was no more

Papa watching from a distance
Felt the pain more
Having promised to always be there
To be his protector
He struggled to untie himself
But seemed impossible
When he became more stubborn
He was finally shot
And the mission was completed

Those whom I termed relatives
Turned out to be destroyers
Those whom I Considered loving
Were the enemies and vengers
I see them walking freely
With their heads high ,full of pride
Those whom I termed loving
Had the guts to drove me out of home

Street is what I call home
And I see you people passing by
With eyes full of hatred
Yet here I am pleading for justice
But my voice can’t be heard
Trying to understand what is Love
Looking for answers
So when you pass me by
No need to judge
There is more than just me
A heart broken into many pieces
Trying not to give up
Waiting for a Savior
A soul pleading for Justice.

Each day I’m touched by the incidents, that happen to me or other people. I’ve got this habit of learning people’s feelings and emotions to life or other issues. I meet different people each day with different characters. There are those in high positions and are really humble and those full of pride, there are others who are always willing to help even though they don’t have enough, others are quick to forgive even when you are the one who wronged.
Something else, we tend to take people for granted when we have them around us. Not because we don’t love them, we just take those moments so lightly and normal. If we as humans were in a position to know what will happen tomorrow then, some of us would have been better persons and some of us would have messed up because of the fear of tomorrow.
And so at some point not knowing about tomorrow is better because it might not do us any good. But the point is don’t take life too seriously or so normal because it’s too short. At one point we will all die and none of us know when or how. So love to the fullest, appreciate those who you love and always remind them. Treasure those little moments. If an opportunity knocks on your please utilize it. Learn to be humble and treat people with respect, judge less. You never know, ‘what goes around comes around ‘
Make mistakes and learn from them,, that’s life maturity. Help if you are in a position to. Love yourself and don’t limit yourself to anything if it’s helpful and you are able to do it. Leave a legacy behind, it’s the most beautiful thing you can do. Put God first ,TOUCH HEARTS and HURT LESS.

#be you, do

💘Painful reality 💘

 

You meet him,you fall for him
Says it’s love,at first sight
He asked for contacts
Without hesitation
You give it to him.

He texts, he calls
And it goes on, for weeks
You get crazy, with each passing day
Yearning for more, more of him
The feelings ,the passion

He asks you out, for a date
As usual, it can’t be NO
You dress sexy, to impress
And get his nerves down
You think you Know him better

He behaves so gently, so romantic
Indeed he’s a gentleman, you think
With every passing minute, it gets crazier
Both of you, can’t resist
He takes you to the hotel room

It starts with a kiss,
And finally you both give in,
You feel like his queen,
You now think, you own his heart
He’s yours forever

You wake up in the morning,
He drives you back home,
Gives you a forehead kiss,
He promise to see you soon
You promise to show up

Days go by, with no call
He turns out to be ‘mteja’
It dawns on you,
It hits you hard,
That painful reality

He was never part of you,
And you find out, you are pregnant
At the same time, infected
You can’t take it,
You decide to abort

The doctor announces,the worst news
You gonna be a barren,for life
You hate yourself more
You regret it more
For taking things so fast

But it’s already late,
Time can’t be turned back
You just discover that
You should have loved yourself first,
Before loving others .

#be you, do you
