There is nothing that hurts worse. Abiding to the do's and don'ts as religiously as it could possibly be done. One day, you wake up and notice whatever you were running away from, has caught up with you. It could be your studies. The results are released and you are holding the bottom, maybe you … Continue reading A Beginner’s First
It has often been said that there are two sides of a coin. I believe that those two sides, the head and tail are the tamed parts. When tossed, we continually bet on the landing of either but never the third option. The ignored part gears it to a third possibility, that of rolling away … Continue reading Not All Thrives
It is the eve of Valentine's Day. Halt, don't go anywhere. This is not among the many pieces contributing to the statistics of praising love. The month of love starring a day of love, 14th February. A less celebrated day sits. Desolate as those who know of its existence, are not enough. Everyone wants to … Continue reading Live, Protect, Live
Do you ever find yourself reminiscing? Memories from years back. Ten or more? Surprisingly, they flood in and bug you until you have to act to shake them off.

She was lying on her side, a painful expression on her face imminent. She walked in to the doctor's office holding on to … Continue reading Popping of Pills
It must be a mother's worst nightmare. A father might be proud. His breed doing wonders in similar lands to his origin. Encourage or be the man behind the strategy. Who am I kidding? Very few fathers would do this in Kenya. They would be all up in defence blaming the mother for "womanning" their … Continue reading The Thrill of The Chase
As I sat there waiting No, counting minutes I realised it was my own time That was wasting away Waiting No, counting on Someone else Who was Somewhere else With Somebody else Doing Something else. I had suppressed my dreams Somehow thinking They were not as important Valid even As your own sounded Not … Continue reading Some…Else
I generally hate hospitals, there is an air about them that makes me feel sick. I would die if I was to study medicine and become the traditional coveted doctor. It was after much persuasion that I agreed to visit our school's health unit. I was dragged there... "Are you pregnant?" The … Continue reading Am I Becoming Anorexic?
