Waiting and Waiting!


Most times we lack the patience of waiting for something especially if we have actually been waiting and waiting for quite some time.

Story of my life, I have been waiting, waiting and waiting. To say the truth, I was almost giving up on the waiting.

When I joined campus, no one gave me the truth about the harsh reality that is going through campus, finishing and graduating (public uni). It was a dream come true anyway until this truth started dawning on me slowly.

From a list of many unprecedented long holidays to student and lecturer strikes. My four year stay at school was definitely going to be prolonged. And indeed it was.

To cut the long story short, instead of graduating last year, I have had a whole year of waiting, waiting for my school to crown my efforts with a certificate. You can’t imagine how heartbroken I was when I discovered that I could not graduate last year.

I am glad that I am now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. With a graduation list out with my name on it, and the graduation scheduled for next week Friday 24th November; what else could I ask for?

It has been a wait worth my while.

For those who are still struggling with Lecturers striking which might be followed by a student strike, I am so sorry that you have to go through this. Blame the system, but the good news is, you will soon get there. If I did, so can you!

Cheers to breaking the glass ceilings!!!! Celebrating those who saw me through this journey, and to Waiting and Waiting!!

POWER OF A JOURNAL(ING)


I love writing and keeping a Journal, I do that a lot. I can actually publicly admit that I find sanity in writing in my journals my thoughts, ideas, experiences which include my highs and lows and above all these, my poetry.

The good thing about this is that you can always get a point to reference in future and also, when those bundles are not available, you can easily pull out your journal from your desk and read through.

So today I happened to go through one of journals, I call it “My Leadership Journal”. This is because this is where I have been w Continue reading “POWER OF A JOURNAL(ING)”

Lead me on


See, I have been silently watching and waiting,

watching and waiting for you to lead me on,

to lead me to these that I call silent waters,

silent waters that I may feel every bone of my being

 

See,

I have been  waiting,

waiting for you even in my dreams,

as we walk down this picture perfect reality,

the reality that is in my dream.

 

So,lead me on,

lead me on if can..

did i just give you a tall order?

just lead me on if you can

Hope


It may sound cliche as we keep hearing of it on a daily basis. At church/mosques on the streets in hospitals, the list would be endless.

But do we ever ask ourselves why? Hope is one of the key components that keeps any human going, the hope for a better house, clothes, education, a flashy car. I could go on and on.

It is one of the things that when lost, we lose a sense of direction and things come to a standstill.We lose the person that we are and our greater purpose.

The reason I keep my hope alive..you might ask. It is because in knowing that life presents me with challenges,I still know that there will be better days.

The Pilgrimage

In a world where everybody is struggling to survive especially the youth, it is very rare to find a young person who is so committed to raising others economically. Our Kenya today is full of unemployed people. It is full of youth who are desperately turning into gambling and betting as a way of livelihood. It is becoming a man eat man society. A society that believes in everyone for himself but God for us all. Not until you meet this lady, in her early 20s but with mega talents. She has decided to employ her God given talents, not only to propel herself, but with many others. Meet Ms. Hellen Kimaru, a university student, who is unstoppable and a force to reckon with. When you know what she is doing, you will not believe that she is still a student.

Allow me


Allow me to share this bits of the puzzle

Of the person I always dreamt to become

The person that I am

And the person I aspire to be

The little girl with big dreams,

Sometimes being not sure where the road would take her,

Trying her luck in all ways

Will these dreams be a realty?

Lucky star,

Please orbit my galaxy,

I dream of a better tomorrow,

Allow me experience it

FAKE SMILES


Underneath the beautiful face,

The pain and hurt,

The hurt from a heartbreak,

The hurt to let go the once so familiar,

Fake smiles,

In an era that worships selfies,

Broken dreams and souls,

Pain and neglect,

But they say we got to keep up;

This fake smile

FRUSTRATIONS OF A Degree


FRUSTRATION OF A degree
I don’t know how to cut a long story short, but I will try.
With a lot of hope I joined uni,
“You will be a step closer to achieving your dreams after four years”
I smiled at this thought
See,when I was growing up,
The most successful people had attended universities, done a
Not to forget that the prestigious Degree has been compromised,
Three lectures in a semester of four months,
Signing of attendance sheets for the lecturers pay
“Ensure you sign against your name all the 12 weeks,
The irony 3 against 12 weeks
We signed our future away,
A semester full of “D” grades,
Who is fooling who?
Mediocrity, mediocrity,spectrum of degrees,
I know you can name them,
“Soma kwa bidii utisaidie”
My single mum told me after selling the only parcel of land under her name to secure my school fee

Happy me,joining comrades to expand my mind for the so called better future
Maybe I am almost actualizing my dreams
And those long lectures,
Mind jogging assignments and those exams,
Life is full of tests and its clear now I have to put my Best foot forward to make it

See,
We have been trying to raise our concerns through the right channels,
Negotiating for better services, value for our money,
Field trips that only reflect on fee cheques but never materialize,
So where does that cash disappear to,
I am sorry, but you need make me understand,
Why I cannot sit for exams without clearing that fee,
I would go on and on about the misgivings.
So I watch every semester as comrades go on strike,
Didn’t you refuse around the table negotiations,
They broke a pane or two this time,
I don’t support vandalism,
I actually don’t condone it,
But will sending a whole group of maybe 10,000 students home for an unknown period of time bring a solution?
Why don’t we look for better ways of dealing with our problems
Did you *administration* think that there could be a possibility that a few people with sinister motives bring down the * learning halls*?
And maybe if your management was polished things would be better?
