My Second Chance

The floor was cold and could not hold my frozen body anymore. The only consolation I had was the bark of my Puma. My head had just dried up with blood clotting from a previous beating. This was cold. Literally too. Then I felt the smoothness of fur rub against my body as if to…

It is Finished

That moment when the heart stops beating, the eyes cannot twitch, the hands cannot mould the clay, the feet cannot feel the touch of the ground anymore, the skin cannot react to the breeze, the fragrance of the rose is no longer close. The rain is soaking me wet. No change. The scorching sun burning…

This Easter season I remember;

  At the cross there my sins were washed away. They thought they had held the Messiah captive but little did they know that through that act many sons and daughters were saved and continue to do so not by an animal’s blood but by the precious blood of the Lamb of God, slain at…

Nearer My God to Thee

I was lost. Completely. I couldn’t even feel the touch of the breeze. I stood there. Stuck to the ground with uncertainty, I knew well that my life had completely taken a U-turn. A turn for the worst. Or maybe not, so I thought. My comprehension had reached its limits and my understanding not withstanding…

My Kinda New Year Resolutions

I want to pray. Simply, praying until something happens. God says i ask whatever in His name that i may receive. Mummy once had  a chain, “try Jesus”, and it was a sign that my help was here with me. Trusting with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my strength and leaning…

dear seasonal friends…

Dear Seasonal Friends, Shikilia uzito buda! What’s up brother! Sasa! Niaje mtunguyaz! Hello! Good afternoon. Well, though it is morning as I write to you, but you understand how we do it. From missing you to longing to know what you have been up to is all in the list. I know without a form…

Be Still

You’ve made my life so beautiful, And as you are so it is meaningful, As the beauty in me sprouted, The minute I got you spotted.   Truth be told, I saw, I heard, And the many lines of you I had, I couldn’t comprehend, but left only to defend Reluctance yes at first But…

The Return

I knew the art of love out of the one, who is love, One who ignores fame to take my shame? He’d rather not gain but take my pain, Out of my guilt, he wanted my faith to build, So much was this love, That at the cross were my sins crossed, Washed with blood…

YOUR SUCCESS STORY

This is a story of peace, of love that is never failing Thinking about it gives you peace, Living its dream makes it real, It’s not about what you can’t do, But what you are best at giving your best shot.     It all begins with us, Loving who we are, God’s special creation,…

Here with me

When you were gone I thought I had lost everything that life would offer, since I had given my all to you. From morning till evening I was always looking through the window after drawing my curtains and across the hills to see if you would return to me where you held me closely to…

h.o.p.e

Kshs. 11,575.28 Getting out of the bank, I held onto the receipt, looking at it intently hoping it would have been at least three times more. I had just been laid off my job after Salama Textiles suffered a 49%loss in the last financial year. In the words of Mr. Juma Kirima, we were a…

A New Dawn

Dusk was here as darkness engulfed the plains of the Mara. The sun was settling down and far away in the horizon the clouds were looking very beautiful in the red almost golden colour. At that moment, nothing else mattered because all I wanted was to savour the beautiful scenery. I wished I could go…
