I’m thinking about them
Thinking of us;
you, me and even those who lost ’cause of fame
I know people who won’t see 2018 ’cause of shame,
on the table hurriedly scribbled suicide note
Seen people who will be making it across the line all alone,
everyone left after they started living lives they’re not.
An extraordinary year it has been for fellow Kenyans,
Seen the worst in us as a people but we’ll be alright,
All around the world seen struggles,
not just us
to the US no pass.
The world still mourning with Europe,
horrific pictures no longer from middle east
West Africa Boko Haram and East Africa Al Shabaab not just ISIS,
victims many to list
World leaders still playing politics and people are dying,
Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump chest-thumping behind Nuks,
to me terrorism only foe.
know we’ve sang victory songs too
Heard ululations from Zimbabwe when Mugabe fall,
some freed Chibok girls great news too
The US offensive against Al Shabaab in Somalia to help AMISOM,
Not to blow my own trumpet but have great news too,
on my blog seen increased views.
Have my own new year’s resolutions,
I know you’ve yours too
Following ’em through always my problem,
this time try to stay true
Looking in the mirror more often part of the plan,
in there lies the only key to my success story
Done with blaming others and crying foul,
no time to sit and feel sorry.
this far glory to God
Blessed too if reading you made it through,
been a tough road
All the best in the coming year my dear friend,
was great knowing you
As we count the hours to the finish line,
may 2018 favour you.
#Happy New Year
