“once beaten twice shy”
I’ve been down but I got up,
Walked thru fire and got burnt but look! My wounds healed.
Betrayal was what I got after all my efforts, everyday was a struggle, cos of you I made it.
Am strong, a fighter, I don’t give up neither do I surrender.
A good friend, fear, power
When Mary got home that afternoon, everywhere was so quiet, there was nobody at home. She quickly changed her clothes and went to the kitchen. There was food in the pot.” when am done eating, I’ll just start doing my assignment “.she said to herself.
As she sat down to eat, she heard the front door close. Maybe she did not close it but what if she did?
” mom!?, mommy! Mom is that you?” she called out but she could only hear her voice echo.
There was a light breeze in the room.” someone just walked in. Am sure of that but who’s it?”she called out again but no one answered. Frightened she ran to her room and bolted the door from inside. Some many things came to her mind. Maybe it was a thief, a ghost or somebody. Somebody she didn’t know or somebody who had deliberately refused to answer her. She crawled to one corner of her room, shivering. Maybe she was daydreaming. She wanted to shout. The neighbours could hear and come to her rescue but something bid her not to.
“don’t be scared. It’s just Me, I want to be your friend. I won’t hurt you”.This time around it was so loud and clear. Someone just spoke.”Please sir, who are you? She asked in a terrified voice. “just call me Dan”, the voice replied.
“OK but sir Dan, I can’t see you. Why is that? “
” I am an invisible friend, but don’t be scared. I am just here to help you. You have so many abilities that you are unaware of so, I am… “” where are you from, where is your country, are you a white man?” Mary interrupted with her questions.
“It’s OK Mary, I will tell you all about it”……..
My dear, I leave you. Love, I leave you again.
You have been my pillar, a pillar which I did not deserve.
I have hurt you, countless times but you did not leave me.
Now I can’t bear this shame so I leave you.
I go away from you with my insecurities.
Life has taught me so many lessons, lessons that have made me treasure you less.
Lessons that have made me appreciate you less.
I pray you find happiness and forget your pain.
I pray you succeed and erase me from your brain.
The problem is not you, it’s me.
I free you, I let you go.
Goodbye my love, I hope we never meet again.
Peace, nature, memories, joy.
Watching from my window pane, it was beautiful,
Every droplet fell to the ground with precision.
It seemed like they had taken the same decision, to stand by each other.
I suddenly reminisced the good times we shared.
Just like the droplets of the rain, we stood by each other.
Through thick and thin, we promised never to let go.
Then came the wind, it blew so hard that everything go mixed up, fear emerged, confusion set in.
The leaves got displaced in a flummoxed manner.
But all I could do was watch, that is what am good at, watching.
Immediately, calmness, things returned to normal, it was so quiet. Hope came back, peace restored, endless joy never to depart from us again.
Listen, listen, listen!!!
Listen to the words I utter,
Listen to the sound of my voice,
Listen to the meaning of each word,
From word to word to word.
Truth is being spoken, can’t afford to miss.
Destinies depend on this, so pay utmost attention for the usurper is here.
Uppity should not be part of you dear, for this package does not have a warranty.
Listen, listen, listen!!!!
Listen not just because luck is on your side, but because you deserve this by your side.
Time heals all wounds they say, but the scar will be forever present.
Remain decent, represent in contestable evidence that you are able to transcend,
Cos obtaining what you deserve is based on your capabilities.
I couldn’t resist when I saw this, the skies so bright and beautiful, the clouds…. Ugh! It looked magical,just like a painting, it had to be the work of an artist. I guess we all know who that artist is. He’s the most renown painter. I’ve heard so much about him and I guess u have too.
That painter is just so awesome.
Just look into it deeply and tell me what you see?
What if am born again?
What if am given a second chance to come into this world as the very me.?
What if I am given a chance to start all over again?
Then I am sure I will not make the same mistakes.
I will do better than I did before,
I will love my neighbour more than myself,
The sky will be my springboard,
We all make this same wish everyday but I tell you what,
Life is only now, not the future, not the past,
The only thing we can do is to make the best out of it, be the best we can be, live it to the fullest.
After all, we know life has no duplicate.
That’s just the way it is.
