Maybe Am Dreaming

I Cant see;

When am in the sea;

You gaze around trying to see me;

Am beneath the ocean;

You sail through;

Trying to catch my frail self;

The splashing waves;

The sea gull screams;

You’ll carry me home, i wont make a sound

Or maybe am dreaming

 

 

The scent is real,

the silver beams

are twirling round and round

The boat man;s light dims

i cling onto hope

Beneath the heavier waves

Are some divine foreshadowing and foreseeing
Of things beyond our reason or control.

Or maybe am dreaming

The Eyes Have It

Did you Know

The eye is an extension of the brain that sits outside the Skull.

It’s obvious that women are smarter than men. Think about it-diamonds are a girl’s best friend; man’s best friend is a dog – Joan Rivers

Girl Crush

I got a girl crush, hate to admit it but
I got a heart rush, ain’t slowin’ down
I got it real bad, want everything she has
That smile and the midnight laugh she’s givin’ you now

I wanna taste her lips, yeah, ‘cause they taste like you
I wanna drown myself in a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair, I want her magic touch
Yeah, ‘cause maybe then you’d want me just as much
I got a girl crush, I got a girl crush

Which way to go?

“You can be anything in this world”

He said,

Just commit your books, and don’t sit still, he added

My dad never allowed me to watch TV in the morning, he argued that there is no way someone will wake up at 4 am,  on Monday,to beat traffic to get to work, while i stay behind wake up at at 10 am ans sit by the TV remote

Dad was right, i still think so,

I think he nurtured me, to be who i am today, i know so, because they say they like how i work,,Cheers to dad,

Today dad says, you are still young(mid 20’s) you have a whole life to live, i smile broadly

They say’ What are you waiting for.you have read, you have a job, what else,

My friends think i should start a family, or show signs of something like that,,

which way should i go,

I don’t know any more, i believe both parties,

All  my age mates are now mum’s, of two kids at least,

But wait, My sister( 2 years older) has not shown any signs,

I think i can take comfort in that,

No no no,, today elder siblings do not set the path,, they say again

You shouldn’t wait, forge ahead, look at Rose, Mary, Hannah,,they are doing well, you the only one-i shrink back

What became of our society, what are these targets on  my head that you have established for me,,why ,,

My thinking: dad said i can do better then, am somewhere today,

My buddies say am late, i sometimes feel so,

Can somebody help?

where is me,,

 

One year on.

The excitement was inexcusable,

The thought of all the dreams, rushing across my mind,

its one year since college,

Its also one year since i got the pay slip,

But wait, new job, new people, less family, new environment

Lets scale it,,

New job-Good

New people(though weird)-Good

Less family-bad

New environment-bad

( New environment,,bad,bad, born and bred in the city, only visited grandpa on Christmas, but here i am, working at the country side, conservative life, no short skirts, no fancy movie places, no trendy fashion, and definitely no English)

One year on, life is a trial, development is key, survival is even more key,

i got bills i gonna pay, so i gotta work, work, everyday

I got to feed, so i got make sure i work and feed.

One year on, life still moves, so do I

A day’s sigh

Its the end of another day,

but the Beginning was not worth a while

So, I call her, CEO

women in leadership and big positions,

Its ok, am also trying to establish me,

But wait, why the ire, Am also working !!!

Crrr, Crrrr,, Pop! Hi, “My name is bla bla bla

and i want to subscribe to your print magazine

Infact i had talked to your colleague “Njeri” Thus your number,

Please let me know whats the procedure” sighs

 

Her: Listen lady,,(worried me), if you are working with Njeri(former employee) behind doors then am sorry

Sorry( Me surprised, for what)..Use the official address

Hangs up…………………………………

Crrr,,,Crrrr Its me again,

I needed to subscribe to your publications and…..

Lady, i told you use the official address (remember its CEO, )

bla bla bla bla….Hangs up,,,,

Me : Lost, confused, hates my morning more.

Anyway tomorrow is a new day, new moods, new trying

Will try again.

Sighs….Snaps out!

 

Gone too soon

Hey there now
Where’d you go
You left me here so unexpected
You changed my life
I hope you know
cause now I’m lost
So unprotected

In a blink of an eye
I never got to say goodbye

Like a shooting star
Flyin’ across the room
So fast so far
You were gone too soon
You’re part of me
And I’ll never be
The same here without you
You were gone too soon

You were always there
and like shining light
on my darkest days
you were there to guide me

Oh I miss you now
I wish you could see
Just how much your memory
Will always mean to me
