The Point is?

Two can play that game
But what's the point
It's not any fun
Dying because you proved a point

God's Shoulder

In your short life
People shall let you down
Circumstances may make you frown
But I shall always be there for you
The One you can always rely on

On Miss Thang

She wears her designer clothes
Much revealing, from head to toe
She paints her face
Wears fake nails
Prides in her adopted foreign accent

But he doesn't even flinch
What matters to him most
Is whether she cooks, whether she cleans
And whether she'll stand by him through thick and thin

An Ode to our Freedom Fighters

They were slaughtered like pigs
Far worse than dogs
Because they believed
And fought for freedom

They died on their knees
Because they never turned their backs
For every drop of blood spilt
A thousand years we will redeem

A Father's Love

He speaks of his child with much pride and glee
I can only image
The love my Father has for me

Somesha Watoto Saturday (12 June 2010)

Do you have any books lying around at home? At the office? Anywhere? Any book that can be read by a very young child to one suitable for a young adult? ANY BOOK AT ALL!?

Somesha Watoto is a great opportunity to promote literacy among the youth in the less privileged communities; Education is key for the future of our youth.

We shall have a session on 5 June 2010 where we shall share knowledge treasures with youth from Good Samaritan Home and Rehabilitation Centre in Mathare. We shall have a great time!

Collect as many books as you can; talk to your family, friends, even the guy next door. Bring your books, their books, and bring someone along!

Somesha Watoto; help our youth gain a love of books!!/event.php?eid=118745981495728&ref=ts
