We stay like this
I’m going to die, baby
Remember the days
Together we used to dine
Now you’ve left
Leaving me frigid
O baby come back
Come baby, come.
I’ve got all the evidence
To make you mine
I’ve got providence
To take far than ICC
O please baby
Come baby, come.
I’ll show you the world
Just name the place
We can start with Canada
Let’s go places
And peel off the world.
Let’s run together
And promote our love
We can be against the world
When push comes to shove
Come baby come
I beg you to.
Let’s savor the hype
And bank three thousand each
I don’t equivocate
But speak my mind
And what my mind is saying is
All I can tell you is this
Don’t mind them plebs
They can kneel before us
And kiss our feet
I’ll just shoot a warning shot
In the air
Skedaddle they’ll disappear
To Jötunheimr they can go
Why should we care?
Baby, let me peel back
And you do mine
So we can know
Who we are
As love is unsighted
And stop me when
I start to peel
Back your skirt
Before our nuptial please!
That’s it… or almost.
Customer Service (CS) Rep. : “Yes, Ma’am, how may I help you today?”
Customer: “Well, after much consideration, I’ve decided to install LOVE. Can you guide me through the process?”
CS Rep. : “Yes, I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?”
Customer: “Well, I’m not very technical, but I think I’m ready to install now. What do I do first?”
CS Rep. : “The first step is to open your HEART. Have you located your HEART ma’am?”
Customer: “Yes I have, but there are several other programs running right now. Is it okay to install while they are running?”
CS Rep. : “What programs are running ma’am?”
Customer: “Let’s see, I have PAST-HURT.EXE, LOW ESTEEM.EXE, GRUDGE.EXE, and RESENTMENT.COM running right now.”
CS Rep. : “No problem. LOVE will gradually erase PAST-HURT.EXE from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt other programs. LOVE will eventually overwrite LOW-ESTEEM.EXE with a module of its own called HIGH-ESTEEM.EXE. However, you have to completely turn off GRUDGE.EXE and RESENTMENT.COM. Those programs prevent LOVE from being properly installed. Can you turn those off ma’am?”
Customer: “I don’t know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?”
CS Rep. : “My pleasure. Go to your Start menu and invoke FORGIVENESS.EXE. Do this as many times as necessary until GRUDGE.EXE and RESENTMENT.COM have been completely erased.”
Customer: “Okay, done. LOVE has started installing itself automatically. Is that normal?”
Cs Rep. : “Yes. You should receive a message that says it will reinstall for the life of your HEART. Do you see that message?”
Customer: “Yes I do. Is it completely installed?”
Cs Rep. : “Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other HEARTS in order to get the upgrades.”
Customer: “Oops. I have an error message already. What should I do?”
Cs Rep. : “What does the message say?”
Customer: “It says “ERROR 412 – PROGRAM NOT RUN ON INTERNAL COMPONENTS. What does that mean?”
Cs Rep. : “Don’t worry ma’am, that’s a common problem. It means that the LOVE program is set up to run on external HEARTS but has not yet been run on your HEART. It is one of those complicated programming things, but in non-technical terms it means you have to”LOVE” your own machine before it can “LOVE”others.”
Customer: “So what should I do?”
Cs Rep. : “Can you pull down the directory called”SELF-ACCEPTANCE”?”
Customer: “Yes, I have it.”
Cs Rep. : ” Excellent. You’re getting good at this.”
Customer: “Thank you.”
Cs Rep. : “You’re welcome. Click on the following files and then copy them to the”MY-HEART” directory: FORGIVE-SELF.DOC, REALIZE-WORTH.TXT, and ACKNOWLEDGE-LIMITATIONS.DOC. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching any faulty programming. Also, you need to delete VERBOSE-SELF-CRITIC.EXE from all directories,and then empty your recycle bin afterwards to make sure it is completely and permanently gone erased.”
Customer: “Got it. Hey! My HEART is filling up with new files. SMILE.MPG is playing on my monitor right now and it shows that PEACE.EXE, and CONTENTMENT.COM are copying themselves all over my HEART. Is this normal?”
Cs Rep. : “Sometimes. For others it takes a while, but eventually everything gets downloaded at the proper time. So, LOVE is installed and running. You should be able to handle it from here. One more thing before I go.”
Cs Rep. : “LOVE is freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everybody you meet. They will share it with other people and then return some similarly sacred modules back to you.”
Customer: “I will. Thanks for your help. By the way, what’s your name?”
Cs Rep. : ” You may call me the Divine Cardiologist, also known as The Great Physician, but most call me God. Many people feel all they need is an annual checkup to stay heart-healthy, but the Manufacturer suggests as schedule of daily maintenance for maximum efficiency. Put another way, keep in touch.

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feeling’s lived; Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge and all the other, including Love. One day it was announced to all of the feeling’s that the island was going to sink to the bottom of the ocean. All the feeling’s prepared their boats to leave but Love was the only one that stayed. She wanted to preserve the island paradise until the last possible moment. When the island was almost totally under water, Love decided it was time to leave.
She began looking for someone to ask for help, just then Richness was passing by in a grand boat, Love asked, “Can I come with you on your boat please? But he answered, I’m sorry but there is a lot of silver and gold on my boat so there will be no room for you.”
Then love decided 2 ask Vanity for help who was passing in a beautiful vessel. Love cried out, help me please! “I can’t help you”, he said, you’re all wet and you’ll damage my beautiful boat.”
Next, Love saw Sadness, please let me go with u.” Sadness answered, “Love, I’m sorry, but, i just need to be alone now.”
Love saw Happiness, she cried out, “Happiness, please take me with you.” But Happiness was so overjoyed that he didn’t hear Love calling to him.
Love began to cry. Then, she heard a voice say, “Come Love, I’ll take you with me.”
Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that she forgot to ask the elder his name. When they arrived on land the elder went on his way. Love realized how much she owed the elder. She then found Knowledge and asked, “Who was he that helped me when no one else would?”
“It was Time” knowledge answered.
“But why did Time help me when no one else would?”, Love asked.
Knowledge smiled and with deep wisdom and sincerity, answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how great love is”.

~~~The Bible &; Your Cell Phone~~~
Can you imagine what would happen if we treated our Bible the same way we treat our cell phone?
*. If we always carried our Bible in our wallet, briefcase, on our belt, or in our purse?
*. If we looked through it several times a day?
*. If we went back to get it when we forgot it at home or at the office?
*. If we used it to send messages to our friends?
*. If we acted like we couldn’t live without it?
*. If we gave it as a gift to our young ones, for their own protection, and in order to stay in constant communication with them?
* And if we took it with us whenever we travel, just in case of an emergency?
Unlike a cell phone, the Bible never loses its signal:
We can connect with it anywhere.
We don’t have to worry about being low on minutes, because Jesus already paid the bill, and the minutes are unlimited.
And, best of all, there are no dropped calls, and the battery never loses its charge.

“When everything seems like in the movies, yeah you bleed just to know you’re alive…”
I don’t want the world to see me…
I’m not that outgoing. I’m naturally naïve but that don’t put me down. But if there is something that’s to be done and is in those situations that would summon me to pay a neurosurgeon to cut off my nerves or block my synaptic bridge so I don’t have to be nervous, I pull myself up, be an auroch and handle the something as it should.
…Cause I don’t think that they’ll understand…
Still waters run deep. I don’t talk much, brand me a taciturn, I don’t mind. Most of the time I’m just taking in what the conversation is all about, contribute a little then immerse myself again to the listening. I learn from everything said and everyone talking but I’m always afraid to mutter something lest it sound esoteric and the world fail to understand mwa and I end up making a fool out of me or seem that I’m speaking Greek or Latin, (jajajajja – I’ve just let out a laughter in Spanish, I think).
…but when everything’s [meant] to be broken…
Being a taciturn, however, isn’t a license to refrain from expressing oneself, ones; feelings, emotions, hopes, dreams, fears and phobias, interests, dislikes and likes, opinions and the ilk. This all I, personally, do, though not in a braggadocio’s style. So when anything’s on the crush course, my ego (no, I have an ego the size of a peanut so it’s unbreakable; it’s invincible, I think), a conversation is heading on the boring mode, my reputation is in jeopardy, someone asks for the basis of my faith, a friend is being slandered on in my presence, I’m asked to explain something; anything that I might know and virtually anything that demand my elucidation, I’ll always be on the go to speak out though not by picketing; carrying wrongly spelt placards while screaming “Haki Yangu”.
…I just want you to know who I am
If you wish to know about someone or something the best option on offer in the market is always ask either the person you want to know more about or the inventor or someone who knows more about the something you wish to know, right? I always appreciate when people inquiring of me from me other than relying on rumours. Also, I always behave in accordance with my personality and will never conform to certain way of conduct to please people. I don’t like eye-servicing. Everybody gets labeled. People may tell us what or who we can be or our capabilities, but it’s up to us to decide whether or not the label is fit to us. I try to be a modest friend, because being someone’s friend isn’t about what you should have done it’s about what you do and I strive to always do good to people, more so, my friends.
That’s it… or almost. I’m only human.
Maybe I should tag other Bloggers for them to try something like this, maybe not. Anyway, if anyone wishes to imitate, go ahead.
| When everything seems like in the movies,
Yeah you bleed just to know you’re alive.
And I don’t want the world to see me,
‘cause I don’t think that they’ll understand,
But when everything’s made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.
Iris – Goo Goo Dolls
Odd, isn’t it? I mean, when was a tree ever been equated to friendship? A tree is to forest as friendship is to human and no one is authorized to change that, not even the Creator because, as the Good Book states, after creation He saw all His work as Good so He doesn’t have to alter anything does He?
Enough with the yapping, I’m just being figurative… so how, you ask? Well, probably, you’ve heard or read whatever I’m going to write about this or not, but I’ll jot it down anyway…
Let’s start from the stem. This is a single entity and so I deem it fit to represent you (or\and me, of course), thus leaving the other elements making up a tree to represent the type of friends we encounter in our life course.
The autumn zephyr is blowing. Its late afternoon and you’ve just arrived home from that part-time job. You’re dead tired but the compound is not that appealing to the eye so you head to your store and pick your rake. Why? The leaves, the dry leaves are all over the yard!
Leaves don’t stay long attached on a tree, even the evergreen tree always has let go of some leaves at some point. Leaves are seasonal, and so are some friendships.
Some friends are there for a while.
Take an example of your childhood friends. Are you still together? I doubt it’s a rare friendship; the childhood one. In this category, we can include the pals from back in elementary school. Do you even remember their names? May be faces and that funny or awkward stint they did back then. Like there is this time we skipped school and went swimming in Lake Mpararo, near the Eldoret railway station. We were in class six or five and so these huge standard eight boys plus the head boy came after us and on our quest to escape being caught and face the headmaster one boy vamoosed without any clothes on, nude to the bone; in his crisp cleaned birth suit. Stories like this fly faster than voyager one and by the following day, that was the hot story……
Your high school and tertiary institutions pals are in the past by now or you just keep in touch through social networks which makes you just acquaintances. Somehow these pals tend to stick longer because of job hunting. You need to be more and well connected to find jobs as the job people always say. But as established, even the evergreen trees let go of their leaves.
Some of the Pals from high school and tertiary institutions fall in this branch (all pun intended). You’ve probably heard of high school sweethearts getting married and sure that must have required they keep in touch often to keep the love burning, don’t you think? And, some people always advice that one should marry their friends…
Some, after committing fornication and a stitch in time saving the nine-month baggage, while still in school, especially tertiary institutions, are forced to be together and take care of a life. Though, I don’t know if such is a friendship or just an inconvenience. Inconvenient friendship.
Some trees often let go of their branches when they feel like, for example, the eucalyptus. So also some of these friendships break at some point. Inconvenient friendship is one of them.
Trees need roots to thrive. There those friends in our lives who are always there for us, no matter what! They come in packages; marriage mates, BFFs (either male or female), parents… these friends bring something to a friendship and since a friendship is a two-way traffic, we too enjoy adding as much to that friendship.
Age, family background, material possessions and so forth aren’t always a bother or don’t determine the course of these friendships. Endearing virtues and plausible qualities (love, loyalty, trustworthiness, and respect e.t.c) are what hold the friendships. Forasmuch as these friendships are tight, they aren’t immune to quakes and shakes. There’s nothing like problem free friendships but that doesn’t rob the friends their deserved bliss in their friendship.
Trees have varied lengths of roots; some deeper in the soil than others, for various reasons like finding the nutrients needed for the growth and upkeep of the tree. These close friends too offer their help, or we offer the help to them, in varied lengths; according to our capabilities and thus the Swahili saying; kutoa ni moyo usambe ni utajiri.
There are external elements that may threaten the well being of a tree; tornadoes, soil erosion, wanton destruction from human to name a few. Friendships too may be faced with the same. So the friends need to work hard on their friendship lest these eternal element (rumors from the envious characters etc) savage their bond of trust and friendship.
The best, strong and dependable friendships require effort, time and other few factors to thrive but the rewards are worth all those requirements. A few years ago, trees older than the human race on earth (created or planted before Adam and Eve) and some, close to and over two thousand years old (planted long before and during Jesus’ stay on earth) were discovered and we can confidently conclude that their roots contributed to their enduring that long.
That’s it… or almost. Always cherish your beloved friends and they, in turn, will reciprocate in kind. So, what kind of a friend are you?
