Happy First Birthday Son


 

Casey1

09th April 2015, was a day we met you

Since then, we realized how happy life can be

Holding you close to our arms and protecting you with our hearts

Has been the best feeling in a life time

You have your ways to calm us down during the hard time

Make us feel young and responsible every time you give us smile

Taught patience and love,

We know that there are days that we have not done our dues properly

Yet, you had been so strong and patience to our deeds

You have blended so well in life and we are so proud of you

Today, we celebrate one year with you

Today, we celebrate love with you

Today, we celebrate happiness with you

Today, we celebrate life

Today, we celebrate you one year Birthday Son

We wish nothing for you but happiness

We wish you the best in life

We wish you to live in God’s path

We love you so much so son

My God protect our Family

May God protect you and guide to live in his ways

Happy Birthday Son.

Stand Tall


Woman-Standing-in-the-Sun

Breathing, looking, feeling and walking
Deciding, choosing, living and talking
Just like a developing child; an adolescent learning
Just like an endless beginning a genuine yearning

Independent, supported or alone
Beg, borrow, or maybe one day I’ll even own
There is definitely a light and it is calling me
Close my eyes spread my wings and I will fly free

No more shame, pretend, cheap smiles and lies
No more ifs, buts, maybes or whys?
Who are you? What do you want? How do you sleep?
I know now I am not your possession to abuse and keep

You were right, it’s dramatic, and all for show
But it was you in the lead role, so desperate to grow
Like a parasite you tried to consume and destroy my life
Like a human being I tried to be your partner, friend and wife

Go back to where you came from; it is what you do best
Go back to being nothing,; an annoying little pest
And when you get there be sure look up high
Can you see me beaming brightly, lighting up the sky

Each night I am reminded that you are evil, selfish and vile
Each night I am reminded how lucky I am, blessed and smile
You should see them now you’ve gone; happy, confident and born again
All their own work, they erased you and survived any pain

It was much easier than I thought; you can’t miss what was never there
But unlike you, I did feel true love, I wanted to grow, experience and share
What a waste, a pointless thought and an unwanted gift
All you saw was credibility, an excuse and blame to shift

It is getting closer, that beautiful light calling me
Close my eyes spread my wings and I am flying free
It’s over, just give up and please let us be
Never again imprisoned, now and forever I’m holding the key

Your self-pity and fairy tales fall on deaf ears
Your stories and lies create no sympathy tears
One by one everyone is hearing the truth
T.R.U.T.H. comes with real evidence and proof

I swear this is the final night you will give me no sleep
There’s no master plan or cunning revenge for me to reap
You are a lonely little man, idiot, bully, gambling fool
You’ve lost again; tough guy but I’ve got it all
Do you feel small?
Pathetic and cruel
Down, down you fall
At last I am standing tall
…We’ve got it all

The Beauty of Your Heart


Light-in-Heart

I stretch my hands at a distance

Hoping to reach your hand

I look at you from a distance

Hoping to catch your beauty

I let my heart open

For you to require no code

Looking at you before I sleep

Waking up next to you

Dream about you when I am with you

Peace with you is a life I need to live with you

 

So many things might have come along

Shaking the walls of our love

Destroy the colors of the heart

Kills the light we have built for years

I won’t let that happen

I belong to you

 

I am yours even when the world turns black

Won’t matter a bit if you take all of me

Because alone I am incomplete

The part of me that needs your presence

Is bigger than I expected

You have concurred my heart

With the beauty of your smile

Tender care and beauty heart

I am yours

 

I would stand in a crowd

With your love, I shall still

Manifesting it all

Shy shall never prevent me

For all strength I have come from you

I shall always be grateful

 

Together we are composed

Within ourselves we fit every bit

The loudness of the world becomes our strength

And the waves of all shall set us a way

Attached hearts we are

Inseparable we are

Within the love we shine

Forever is our life

For a family we are strong

For eternity we are one.

The Definition

Its denial to contradict the sides you live in
not to mention the doors to your own life
Its not about everything but one thing that you are good at
Ability to stand on your shadow and still play the part
The part of your own arguments while believing you are not alone
The rumble of your heart would embrace nothing but the beauty
Not of what has been described but that of your own appreciation
Its easier to lock one door today and open another one tomorrow
but closing both would jeopardize the treasure
Treasure that you alone can not stand against
Undefined truth is always the best light
When you accept the colors of the rainbow
They would say you have to choose
choose between sides, sides that define you
and until you make that clear every one wont be your enemy
it is easier to pretend and live unconsciously happy
Or ignoring the said facts and remain with your own
Whatever the man says defiles him, same goes with thoughts
Engraving the beauty in your heart avails you
Standing in between your sides appraises you
and awarding your efforts glitters you.
Ability to stand through your storms defines you
It is a blessing to blend in with a purpose
Its nothing of value until you know your definition

I am Ready to Give Up


I’ve been told and hear a lot of negativity

Walked alone on the road that’s too hard to live for

Yet I stood still despite the storm that almost took my strength

Scared? I’ve lived with fear of my own trials, failing my own designs

 

 I was ready to stop everything and walk away, ready to give up

I am now ready to give up my fear and face my  life strongly than ever before

I am ready to give up, give up the mask worn in the past and embrace the reality

I  ready to give up quitting and stepping up

 

Life is more precious when having your principles

Happiness is the only gift a man can embrace forever and yield in it.

 

I am ready to give up everything for the sake of my happiness and my life.

You should do the same.

What is Home really


 

LoveFamilyHomeButton

I grew up in a family of three children, all being boys and i am the second, As African, my mother could not find us a maid to help her domestic and care for us as well. She struggled for us to grow in such a way we could neither get problems caring for ourselves nor ask people to help us with all our domestic works.

That being the reason, she started teaching us every work at home, cooking, washing dishes, washing our own clothes, cleaning the houses and all sort of works. I was the five years old when my mother started to put me on the line of work with brother, i started washing dishes and my own clothes, cleaning the house. With such kind of age where children of the same age are interested in playing around with others children of the same age, frankly, i felt a lot of my childhood fun had been taken from (from a child perspective).

 

Slowly we grew up (my 2 brothers and i) and we managed to do all the works at home and our mother could have enough rest.

 

All the training and division of works at home brought unity and love in the family, i also learned to love domestic works (cooking, washing dishes, clothes, cleaning the house). Despite my father being Police man then, we use to shift a lot places according to the nature of his work however we all felt close to each other.

After we grow up, school separated us, we went in different schools three of us and left our parents alone at home. This situation led to rare family meeting however we meet at different times and a the times no matter how few we are we still feel love and unity we were brought with in a family.

 

From this perspective of Love, made me understand that A home is not just a having a house to live in. having all good item every human would have wanted in life.

A home is surrounded by Love and Unity, understanding, appreciation, support each other and make every one in safe. If a family fights every day, they could be living in a boxing ring.

 

We all need to learn to create our HOME with love and unity, if you can have that, all other things wont matter in a family.
