Old!

Its here....21 years ago, a little girl was born. That little girl who was born in nairobi hospital, has led a great life.... although she has had her few obstacles in life...(what would life be without them right?)...

Its my 21st birthday and i feel old! I've been taking stock of what i have done for myself, how far i have come, and what i need to have done in the next 5 years. I must say, i have not done tooooo badly! I've got these amazing parents who have taught me everything i need to know and are perfect role models....especially my mum. She's who i want to be when i grow up.....woops, maybe i am already grown up! hmmmm...Anyway, I always ask myself if i would be satisfied with myself if i died today....I'm happy to say that yes, i would be satisfied. I've lived as much as one could for my age and I'm going to do more!

MY HERO

A star out in the skies

She stands out in everyone’s' eyes

She is a smile on the world's face

Shining on in all our days



Amidst the crowd

She sits up high as she scrolls

through the writing on my soul

her eyes move from side to side

seemingly seeing the nakedness of my heart

I pose there and ponder

Does she see what I see..I wonder!



As you look closer

Beyond the warmth in her eyes

There lies a deep sadness

Of a child carrying the world's pain

And she carries it not in vain

for her kindness and selflessness is what is unveiled



Although tried and troubled

She will not stumble or utter that she is unable

For she will remain humble and able..

In her open heart you will see her happiness

For as long as time comes and goes

She will keep us all smiling

And remain everyone's hero...my hero

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

pole for the belatd nature of this but HAPPY BIRTHDAY! me and some pals of mine have adopted the habit of having an extended birthday, kinda like a birthday week, to celebrate and recognize not only the fact that ur mummy was prolly in labor for a while...but also that there is sooo much to be grateful for in your life that truly it deserves more than one day.
