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.

Let Go and Let God

Sometimes we feel like nothing is working

Like things are hard to fix on our own

We feel like giving up

Nothing will ever come easy

We need to strive to make ends meet

People might despise you

Make you feel worthless

But believing that God is there with us comforts

That peaceful feeling you get when you pray

When you cry out to him and let him know

Make him aware of everything that troubles us

People will find you but they do not define you

People will find you and they will help redefine you

Peer pressure can gut you off

It can make you feel like you are not worth who you are

It will make you have two lives

One that is the real you and another that helps you ‘fit in’

Letting go off things and surrendering them to Christ,

Builds you as an individual

God’s blessings will delay,, they will take time

Patience will always pay

Being curved into prayer beings out the glow in you

You need to let go and let God.

The comfort of believing

Well I was busy studying then suddenly, I started meditating on today’s sermon in church. The armor of Christ was the topic.

I then got to realize that as Christians we need to know that we are fully armed with the grace and love of God that protects us from all evil in the world today. We might feel like life is so hard or like everything is just drawing away from us making us feel void and incomplete.

Sometimes temptations may come through and all we have is doubt and sadness. Well Job in the Bible was tempted by the devil but even with the hard time he was facing and the pain he felt from the sores on his body he never turned his back on the Almighty.Sometimes our friends can contribute to leading you away from your Christian way of life but you have to always keep in mind that friendship is a choice. Well also, choices make or break us.

God always holds our hands in every situation we face. You may feel like no one wants to help you with the many problems or hardships you may be facing but, God will always be right there next to you.

Communication with God is always key. You can never go wrong with telling God how you feel or what you need or what your deepest feelings towards something this is because he never lets go but listens without giving any judgements on what you say to him.

As a christian, developing a personal relationship with Christ, makes you do all things in confidence and distinguishing between right and wrong will be easy. You probably will not do what you cannot do in Gods presence.

Living a Christian life requires sacrifice. Sacrifice from the earthly pleasures and doing things that please God. You do not need to change or have two different personalities for the sake of pleasing people around you. Being true to one self makes you feel confident and self sufficient in all things you do. You will also be an absolute representation of Christ and a blessing wherever you go.

Be Blessed.

It was then that I decided

To stop talking to you

I really thought that you would miss me

But I missed you instead

I saw your life

You were happy, happy without me

I thought that I had sparkled a part of your life somehow

With the way you once looked at me

But then, nothing like that seemed true

I was a stranger to you

The depths of my heart clenched

When I saw you with her

Its then that I realized that I was single but in a relationship

It broke my heart

First, I was in a relationship with someone who was not aware of it

I fell for someone without their knowledge

He went quiet,

Ignored me

And we have ever talked since then

And that is when i realized that Crushes never last.
