Goals were met and some were not. Relationships sailed and some sank. Lives were gained and some were lost. Dreams came true and some are still pending. It has been a long time coming but it is finally here. The last blog post for 2022. Yay!
The Use of English
I mean it's English, how hard can it possibly be?
I said yes when 'no' blared in my head. I said ‘no’ when all my heart whispered was 'yes'. I stumbled, I got up, I cried, I laughed. I am human, just like everyone else.
So I stared at the rain and wondered in my mind, "Is that all you want me to see, or is there more?" I couldn't help the smile that broke out while waiting for an answer I knew would come...
A city without a wall is open to so many attacks, you don’t want to be found anywhere near that city so why allow yourself to become the city; unguarded?
Couples seemed to be arguing in louder voices like the universe wanted me to hear them as I passed by. Men were scum and women were evil so I decided I would be neither. Earth was overrated and I was done being human.
What Language Do You Speak?
Don't you find it funny when people say they want to show you the light but they spend the entire time talking about the ills of the darkness? You say you come in peace but your knives are out and ready to cut through my throat.
Their Myth, The Truth
The myth often appears with boldness, allure and an air of faux prettiness. The truth is more calm,collected, confident and aware that it should be accepted. But it doesn't force one to.
The Reason For The Rules
People do not just start things because they want to fail at it. However, that's exactly how it plays out when one becomes headstrong on "pursuing what could be" without a complete understanding of "what is, and the order of what has been".
What Are You Writing?
No matter how boring, busy, productive, destructive, innovative, challenging, sad, mind blowing or crazy your life has been, it becomes a story when someone sits down to recount it. Note that this person would only be recounting what you have already written, no additions or subtractions. It's all you from preface to epilogue, you are … Continue reading What Are You Writing?
Finding Your Birdplace
I have always believed that nature is a very good teacher, we are just not very good students. So in June, I decided to pay attention to the birds and I even told them to keep the change. Please let me know if it was worth it in the end! I recently came across a … Continue reading Finding Your Birdplace
Joy’s Journey (Departure)
Many of us can point out the exact time she left. Like the last straw that broke the camel's back, you can think back to that exact period when it all became dark. But do you remember when she started packing? When the dark clouds started covering? That time when the first straw was placed … Continue reading Joy’s Journey (Departure)
In Wrath Remember Mercy
When last did you loose your sight? Or let me put it this way, when was the last time you were blinded by rage? Take deep breaths and think back to that moment when you were so mad that even your body was shaking and coherent words were difficult to form. That time when all … Continue reading In Wrath Remember Mercy
I Love You
We have been told many times that true love is a verb, so real that it's visible for even the blind to see. The definitions go on and on, it's never ending. What is love to you? Who is love to you? Out of so many definitions, theories and practicals out there, there is one … Continue reading I Love You
You do not need a whip, bamboo stick, or even your fist to beat this one. You need something stronger than that. I am not asking you to be little David with the sling marching up to Goliath the giant who was fully clad in his war armour. Neither am I saying you should be … Continue reading Beating Odds
What Is In Your Hand?
Have you ever heard the saying, "use what you have to get what you want?". I heard this a lot growing up but people made it seem like it can only refer to something negative. It either suggested using your body to earn money, or using your position to oppress people into giving you what … Continue reading What Is In Your Hand?
The Thankless Robot (PART 2)
Why did i decide to use 'thankless' instead of 'ungrateful' (which would have flowed better right?). Well I thought about it alot but I decided that ungrateful is too strong for the pure intentions(I never wanted to hurt anybody) I carried around. I was grateful to humans (I still am) whether they believe it or … Continue reading The Thankless Robot (PART 2)
The Thankless Robot (Part 1)
Yes indeed, persistence and determination is commendable but wisdom is still the principal thing. When you have a goal, obstacles immediately form before you. Even as you break down wall after wall, more walls will spring up. First, be absolutely sure that it is the right wall, then do all you can to break it … Continue reading The Thankless Robot (Part 1)
The Duty of Care
I really like Lord Atkin's definition of neighbour in the renowned case of Donoghue vs Stevenson. Stay with me until the end😘, don't allow the case scare you away. I'm driving somewhere😉. On 26th May, 1932, Lord Atkin passed a judgement that became one of the most significant cases of the common law world, Donoghue … Continue reading The Duty of Care
Je Te Pardonne (I Forgive You)
A wise man once told me something a few years back. I was between the age of eleven to thirteen years old. Before I tell you what he said, please make sure you are not eating, about to eat or just finished eating. If you are, just leave this and read later when you are … Continue reading Je Te Pardonne (I Forgive You)
