HOME

So long had I travelled the lonely road

I stopped for a moment in my lonely way under the starlight.

I find my place

The lonely road, no longer I roam

We met, and were one in the heart’s desire.

You feel like home to me

Like a comfortable easy chair

A place where I can be myself

Where I can go to be free

In between the warmth of your embrace and the fierceness of your touch, I find my place lost inside your soul.

A place I can call mine.

A place where I can grow old.

(Your soul feels so much like home, that when I met you, I finally understood what they mean when they say Not all who wander are lost. For I always find myself wandering back in your arms… [‘Cynthia Go’] ).

SILENCE

Silence

Words without sound

In silence I loved him

Love without a song

In silence I have lost him

In silence I’ve longed for his hand

And in silence I’ve met emptiness

Leaving me out cold

Torn and broken

Rejected and scarred

Lifeless and alone

In silence I fell

And in silence I heard my own heart breaking

I loved you once upon a time

But the silence killed us…..

DEPARTURE

He asked :

You and me; can’t we be friends?

With tears rolling down her cheeks, she replied….

I told you before, I don’t do stuff like that.

In the beginning , you were a man to me, And now, my heart still calls you my man.

In the future, you will still be my first love. But then let’s pretend nothing ever happened between us.

When we meet, let’s not greet each other.

Let’s not even ask; ” Have you been well? ”

Even after a lot of time has passed………..

” It was like that before; just like a memory, let’s not smile and act as if we know each other.

Whatever The Start Was, I loved You…

The festive season is a time for merry making and jollies. It is also a time where love is spread to make others who are less privileged have a beam of hope in their life.

HEAVEN’S VERY SPECIAL CHILD (PART 2)

Children with special needs are children first. They have the same needs as all children thus; a place where they feel physically comfortable, loved and secure…. They have opportunities to play and learn; people who care about them and activities that allow them to be successful.

I call them Heaven’s Very Special Kids. Though they may need more time to learn and practice certain skills, they may need specific adaptations to help them succeed at certain activities. These children are not so different from typically developing children, they have lots in common and that’s the most important thing to remember.

Kobby kyei who is the C. E. O of #PTUS foundation in support with his team brought smiles on the faces of these kids, having a party for them and donating as well. In his speech, he made it known that kids may need more praise and encouragement to gain the skills typical for their age group. He went on to say kids with special needs need to learn about individuals with disabilities who have become successful in life, advising them to study hard, in this way they can become great leaders and role models to others.

I therefore encourage us to learn how to support these kids with the little we have and to respect them .

I am happy to be in support of the team….

And I dream I can spread my wings…

NO SHAME IN EVOLVING.

Inge Wallage

Emotions were sailing through her body, thoughts occupying her mind. The inner turmoil was too much. Oh, what experience over the last days, deep and beautiful, but also tough and rough. It was as if she needed to get rid of something now. Tears welled up in her eyes. She couldn’t hold them back, but then why would she? If people watched her and saw, would it really matter? She closed her eyes. Songs were floating through her veins. She felt the music deep inside her gut and it gave rise to her emotions.

“And I dream I’m an eagle.
And I dream I can spread my wings”

bird-woman

She gave into the feeling of moving up, the surge to fly. She erected herself, stood on her toes, spread her arms, felt her wings materialise and up she hovered. The eagle in her broke free, giving into all issues that characterised her…

HEAVEN’S VERY SPECIAL CHILD 

The poem I’m about sharing is going to be on cerebral palsy. Before then, I would like to define cerebral palsy. 

Cerebral palsy commonly referred to as “CP” and described by loss or impairment of motor function. Cerebral palsy is actually caused by brain damage which could be of brain injury or abnormal development of the brain that occurs while a child’s brain is still developing before birth, during birth or immediately after birth. 

     HEAVEN’S VERY SPECIAL CHILD 

It was time again  for another birth

A child cried and everyone smiled

This child was heaven’s special 

She grew up and the whole world saw her. 

She was not broken but beautiful 

Challenged not challenging 

Her progress may be slow, accomplishments she may not show. Though she will require extra care, she is not a burden, she is Blessed. 

At the play ground she will see her folks run here and there. She may not be able to run or laugh or play. 

Her thoughts may seem quite far away. So many times she will be labelled “Different”, helpless and disabled. 

Yes she may be Different but not less. 

To the world’s eye, she may never be normal but she can be better than normal. We all have the same smile on our face. 

She is strong not because she wants to be but because she has to be. 

Cerebral Palsy is not a choice but Acceptance. Though it can be defined, having cerebral palsy does not define the person that has the condition. 

PS: It is their disability and not who they are. 

This is Kobby kyei, CEO of ptus_foundation, a new NGO. 

He is a strong advocate for cerebral palsy and physically challenged children. Let’s help in supporting him.

WHEN YOU ARE FALSELY ACCUSED 

    Attacks will come in many different ways and some of these will come against your happiness. Sometimes our words will be twisted, sometimes we will be ostracized for our views, sometimes we will be deliberately misquoted, sometimes we will be the victims of a whispering campaign where we cannot even pin down the things said against us. 

     The point to remember here is that, these things will happen from time to time. It’s part of what it means to be human. A thing I know, “plainly”,we won’t always get along with everyone. You might want to patiently put up with each other, but in so doing, know that you are going to have to put up with a lot of nonsense, so you better get used to it.

       Sometimes people hear what they want to hear and believe whats ever been said regardless of the facts. Do not be overly surprised when despite our best efforts or actions trying to prove them wrong are criticized. It’s possible that in our haste to defend ourselves, we will talk too much, too soon and with too much emotion. Sometimes it will be best not to explain yourself. 

       You know you are in the victim mode when you feel wronged, usually by friends involving unfair accusations, where you cannot get your side of the story fairly told. The whole thing eats at you day and night and you become consumed with the issue until you lose your focus completely and may say foolish things that hurt yourself and others and nothing is solved.

      Though you are falsely accused, always mind what comes out of your mouth, do not say anything in a heated moment that you will regret later.

     Even if they are unfairly judging your heart, do not presume to judge theirs. Sometimes the Lord uses these very painful times to move us on to a new level in life. I do not think we can always see in advance what God may be doing in these times of trouble, but He’s always there to support us. Just be calm, pray and leave the results in God’s hands.

SHED YOUR ANGER 

Photo Credit : InstaPhoto

           The Rage

It boils within 

Slowly poisoning all that it touches 

It is all consuming 

Anger does not desist from destroying sensibilities 

It feeds upon itself and burns a flaming 🔥 red. 

Anger is not love 

Anger is self centered 

Anger takes control 

It makes you hate

Anger wants you to hurt

Anger makes everyone walk away from you

Anger holds you back, especially from healing. 

The best thing you can do for yourself is to be validated for your feelings and shed your anger.
