Don’t Give Up.

When nothing seems easy
Nothing should hold you down
Its hard to keep moving on
When life gets hard stay strong
When you feel like giving up
Hold on and encourage you

You are much more
Better special and carefree when you
Have your back
Have you to count on when times get hard

You don’t have to soak your pillow
You don’t have to beat you so hard
But keep in mind that you have something special
Something that will make them happy and glad
Mostly because they have you

You don’t have to fear
You don’t have to hate
You don’t have to say goodbye

There is a tomorrow
That will make you happy
That will give you what you desire
That will never give up on you
That will make you smile for the hard times un the past

Keep pushing hard
Love and care
Be there and comfort
Encourage and pray




Shake the butter off
On your piece of bread
Make tea and shine with a smile
Reaching out to your phone
You frown

No one cares
No likes
No comments
Why do you bother

No one should approve what you love
You should make you happy and proud
Let them comments not define who you really are
Because you are wonderfully made in Christ

Take that phone
Put what you need to put on your wall
Be happy
Be proud and have courage
The click on that power button like you own it
Then carry on with your day just like you started it
With your tea and bread with butter


Why Now.

We all have dreams.

We all have desires to get to the top most of the pyramid. Self actualization, makes us want to do things that make us fall rather than rise.Sometimes we see ourselves earning great fortune, being where we want to be but the road to where we want to be is rough.

Someone once said that God created us with a purpose and all days we should live a life that pleases Him.Each time you fall,each time you fail on what you are doing, you need to get up dust yourself and keep moving. God has a reason for each and every single thing that happens in your life and each time you fall, it is a beginning to your road to success.

We need to analyze our situations and come up with a plan on how to move forward. In all situations we need to let go and let God. We need to start working towards achieving our dreams. It is never too late to change our course and come up with a plan to move on towards our goals.

Always be your own cheering squad before you can be someone else’s. Put your self first.Start being who you want to be now!

Keep Moving

When everything just seems wrong

Then life just comes to an halt

And everyone changes to who they never were before

When trying is all that you have

But nothing motivates your soul

Nothing gives you the zeal to keep going

But all you have to keep in mind

Is the very fact that you are special and amazing

And what you do will change the world

Someday sometime your dreams will make you great

You inspire someone somewhere

You need not give up but stand up and build your little world.



She was burning deep inside

Without a sense of compulsion

Heat embraced all over

Her eyes reflected pain and sorrow

She reached out her hand

Tried getting to what she thought

Was her comfort

She looked up and tears rolled down

As the cold floor succumbed to her fear

Red  blood, made her shake and shiver in pain

Hoping for resurrection someday


The horror

The chicken walked all over

Showing less concern with the weather

Mothers carried pots on their heads

Others cleaned their cereals

Others bathed their children


Girls in the garden plugged their jembes deep into the soil

Uprooting weeds and digging

Others hanged their clothes – singing happily

Fathers sat under the tree

Reading news papers or rather,

Shaving their beards with a small mirror


Suddenly rain poured so heavily

So heavily that it swept away

All houses in the east and west

Cats meowed in distress

Dogs barked in horror

Everyone tried to gather all that they owned

With hope that their houses would conqurer

The range shown by the sudden fall

That the rain would ignore the fact  that they never existed


Hours went by the rain still poured

Houses socked from the drips of rain from the roofs

Mothers fed and tucked their children tight kissing them goodnight

Protecting them from the fear of the rambling thunder

Some children cried in fear

The soil outside finally gave in to the Persuasion of the rain water

A land slide was experienced

The dam over flowed and its banks busted out

The water made its way to the homes


Houses were swept away

People lost their lives others lost their loved ones

Property was destroyed

Cats,chickens parted ways with their masters


The rain destroyed in seconds

We need to help and support those affected

With natural calamities that are beyond our control

Donations, prayer and support is all that they need

Follow your heart and not the crowd.

Sometimes in life we get to meet many people. Some of whom we share dreams together and others have completely different views about what they want to have in life.

We tend to crave for a sense of belonging to people around us.We are always afraid of being alone in this world.Sometimes we fail to achieve what we want just for the sake of pleasing our peers. Well, I’ll agree that people are different in many ways. Some need people to tag along so that they can make it in life. Others tend to make it alone but with the help of diversified professionals.

I have always believed that having principles, gives you a sense of direction in life. I have had a couple of moments where my principles, help me make right decisions not because I don’t want to fit in the society but because I believe that what I do will be reflected sometime in the future.

Sometimes we tend to change our style just because of fame, we need to look like different people and so we forget that everyone is special in their own way,and tagging along with people who appreciate us the way we are helps us grow.

Sometimes, we may need to appreciate ourselves and believe that we were born and created with a purpose.You need not change who you are to be accepted by society.

Believing and having a positive view in different things that we do can help us achieve different things. Do not shutter or give up when things do nor work out the way you expected them to. There is always a second chance that will help and enable us do things in a much better way.

No one will stop or pause their world for you. When people get a chance to improve and add value to their lives they will and they will not tag you along.So you have to follow your own trail.Believe that the stage you are in right now is one that will improve you and no one’s timing is the same.

We have different timings in life.Do not give up on your dreams when you see someone close to you or someone you know achieve theirs. All the same, you need to always encourage yourself to do better.

Follow your own trail.Do not compare yourself to anyone.Be the best version of who you are. Achieve your dreams and your own free will and comfort. Even when you are afraid to do anything;

Stay afraid, but do it anyway.Do not go with the flow but be the flow.
