My Beautiful Mbaire
Even though you are far away
You are always in my heart to stay
Nothing will put us apart, away
For ever for everyday
My heart melts with joy
And into the darkness of a gloomy sky
My hand fumbles helplessly
Seeking, searching and reaching for you lovely
My heart is arching for you my Mbaire
My heart is searching for you Mbaire
My heart is calling deeply
For you my beautiful Mbaire
Come on don’t be shy
This love you can never run away
You only embrace and stay
You enter and throw away the key
May the angels of God guard the doors I pray
When my hand finds yours finally
Peace I have never known till I found you lastly.
My beautiful Mbaire,
My heart finds a home in you
In the darkness I found you waiting patiently
Ever since I found you I have known peace.
My heart longs for you
My beautiful Mbaire!
Once a student came to a wise sage and asked:
— What else do people lack to make the world better?
— They lack things that they do not ask about, — he answered. And, seeing the perplexity of a person who asked the question, explained:
— What people ask God for? Happiness, wealth, love, even talent – for the sake of success and fame. But did you hear that someone asked to make him smarter or kinder?
The student thought and shook his head.
— That‘s it! — The sage said regretfully. — Everyone consider himself sufficiently intelligent and kind, willing himself entirely different. And so the world does not become any smarter and kinder.
Leaving, the student repeated himself: “Good mind – that‘s what people do not think to ask for that the world would become better.”
But the thought to start from himself did not occur to him.
If ever two were one, then surely we,
If ever a man was loved by a woman the thee,
If ever a wife was happy in a man
Compare with me, ye woman if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold
Or all the riches that East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor aught but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such that I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let’s so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
A question I have been asking myself over and over for some time now, but haven’t had an answer just yet, and now am going to ask you the same. Why do most people lie about their marital status? It’s a rhetorical question but I want you to take your time and think about it. Like for example why a married man, woman or even a Young man, young woman would tell you they are single and yet they are indeed married or even in a relationship? A thought of someone lying to you about their marital status is quite disturbing. This is not something new; we encounter these instances especially in social places, our places of work and social networks. Most this cases are more evident on face_ book. Of course you don’t have to believe everything you read on the internet. The idea of a married man or woman telling you they are single is just laughable. Yet we so often forget that these are some of the things that tear apart our beautiful marriages and wonderful relationships. According to Mar slaws law of hierarchy of human needs, acceptability in the society is one of them. Everyone needs to be accepted and loved, especially from our own cohorts, we come from. We both need to be known, identified with a specific group of people, and unfortunately in search of that most of us often lie about who we truly are, just to get the ‘approval’ and ‘appreciation’, but there is one thing they forget. Honesty. Honesty traces its roots back to human morality. We both know that human moralities are invincible. They are our guidelines and from which the rule of law is derived. In any relationship honesty is key. Ignore honesty and your relationship will be at stake. To say the least. The truth is you can do all you want, tell people all sort of things, but without honesty you will lose. More often people will always accept and appreciate you for who truly are. Free advice: NEVER pretend to be something you are not. Don’t lie. Lastly don’t start a relationship you can’t manage. It’s better to avoid than regret later. The choice is yours. Do the right thing.
“Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as a daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”

My love, by now I hope you know,
I hope you know everything I have told you.
By now I hope you know that I love you.
My heart beats steadily with joy,
Every time I think about you.
You my love, bring love and joy.
You give me every reason to face another day.
My love, I don’t want to live without you.
What, brings happiness in my life everyday
It is this chance to say, “I love you!”
This chance means so much to me, my love.
A rare chance, those other men you didn’t give.
That only, my love means so much to me.
That chance only my love, means that we
Are really something, something you can never forsake.
My love, our destiny is real.
We should never deny.
My love I want you to do me a favor.
Be patient with me,
Understand me too.
I will do my best to the best for you.
Though am not perfect, I will give you,
Finally my love,
I can’t give you a world full of roses,
But I have something so precious
That is the only thing I can give you.
I give you my heart,
We live in a shadow of a religiously inspired terror in an era where science has plainly shown religious superstitious to be false. Yet it is a strange anomaly that faith schools are increasing in number and influence in our education system. In London for example there are 7000 faith schools and yet the government is encouraging more. Over half of the academy schools are sponsored by religious organizations. The most worrying is the new wave of private evangelical schools adopting America’s Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E) curriculum. This curriculum does not encourage the learners to consider the weird claim of the bible alongside scientific fact. It also indoctrinates into what an objective observer may see as war to morality.
When it comes to small children, I think religion is a dangerous virus, that is transmitted down generations from parents to the child and grandchildren and not only from the teachers and clergy men. Children are especially vulnerable to infection by virus of religion. A child is genetically programmed to accumulate knowledge from figures of authority. A child’s brain from a very good Darwinian reason has to be set up in such a way that it believes what it is told by its elders. The reason is that it isn’t just time for this child to experiment with warnings like “don’t go too near the cliff edge” or “don’t play with fire you will get burned” or still even, “don’t swim in the river it has crocodiles”. Any child who applied scientific skeptical questioning attitude to that will be dead. The child’s brain will automatically believe what it’s told even if it is non-sense. Then when this child grows into an adult it will tend to pass on that non-sense to its children. And so religion goes on from generations to generations. For many people when growing up, those who have a good strong dose of rational thinking manage to shake this virus off. Otherwise their mind remains stuck and in a state of infancy, and there is a real danger of passing this virus to the next generation. If you take an example of a child brought up in a strict religion family, the child has no freedom to think freely, investigate and choose what they think is suitable and best for them. This child therefore is limited in terms of their view points about life. This is wrong and abusive. The reason is, their childhood is one dominated by fear. Fear of disapproval while at the present and even eternal domination. For a child, images of hell fire and gnashing of teeth is as real and not just fictions at all. Stories of hell fire inserts fear into children and that’s wrong. If you bring up a child and discourage it from free thinking and making decisions that is mental and psychological abuse. For example if you tell a child if they die they are going to rot in hell. To me that is abusive. It is deeply disturbing to think that there are believers out there who actively use the idea of hell for moral policing. It is weird to label a tiny child as Christian, Muslim or Jew and categorize it according to the religion of its parents, and not the political parties of its parents. We both agree that this child is still too young to make decisions about political parties. But why is religion so special? Faith is a matter of life and life to us. Everyone should be given a chance to think freely and make decisions on what they believe is best suited for them. It should not be imposed at birth.
