Today it’s a new day I’m yet to concur, despite all the bumps and bruises I have endured on my way towards a career change, I’m still standing strong than ever. I reckon that all my experiences and failures are symbolic in this journey of mine.
Today I will soldier on and face this nice sunny day, I promise myself not to falter in any way. I will do my part as a responsible citizen of the world, because I am strong and ambitious.
Today is a whole different day with new challenges to face, but nothing scares me anymore, nothing shakes away my confidence, nothing has the power to bend my beautiful mind in some twisted form, because I am strong and ambitious like a soldier ready to concur the enemy.
Yep! That’s my take on life and nothing will ever deter me from reaching the goals I have set for myself.
Oh earth! Today we salute you for all your undivided love
You are the source of our daily dose of oxygen
You grow the trees for us so they can clean out
All the toxic air we put out in the air
As humans sometimes we get carried out
And cause harm to you our lovely earth
Your landscape is a wonder of nature
So beautiful and it hurts to see you filled
With plastic that destroys your rhythm of
Today: Our dear earth, we celebrate you
And we bring awareness to how important
you’re to the cycle of life
Earth, we salute you for all
The goodness of life.
Happy Earth Day everybody!
Last night the reunion show of the Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) turned into a brawl as Porsha charged on Kenya like a wild cat. The whole fight was incited by Kenya, who kept on taunting Porcha with annoying silly remarks, and drove Porsha to lose her mind by acting like a classless woman on steroids.
It was a perfect setup by Kenya and Porsha fell through into the trap. The whole season we have seen Kenya mastermind plans to make other women scoop low and act like idiots, while she acted as if she was the victim all along. I’m pretty sure last night when she provoked Porsha, she knew what she was doing, and her plan might have just worked out, because I think Porsha might end up not coming back to the show. We just have to wait and see.
Why is it that most black women on these reality shows behave like thugs? It’s a pity that they continue to portray the same stereotypical image we are trying to not associate ourselves with, the image set by hollywood of an angry black woman. Ladies, if you want respect, why not respect yourselves and stop acting like wild animals especially when you are on television like that. Elevate your images with self-respect.
With time: Seasons change, so do we
Yesterday’s Fall brings today’s Spring
Boosting the trees with bountiful green leaves
A signal of growth and new beginnings
Seasons change as with time, so do our goals
Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a new day
Like trees we get winded by the harsh weather
Of each season, but with deep roots and great stamina
We endure to live another day and don’t give up
Seasons change and in time our aspirations
Open the gates of the astronomical zeal to stand strong
The strength bestowed on us from the very beginning
Because we are on a special journey to a great destiny
Tomorrow is a step closer to quench our thirsty
Seasons change and yesterday’s mistake is history
Tomorrow is the future waiting to be discovered
Tomorrow is a new day bundled with
Blissful sweet smells to rock your world
Because when seasons change, you change too
She glides across the room
Waving her hands in the air
Her walk exudes confidence
Her smile lights up the room
It’s a glee moment
It’s a glee moment to see people like her
It’s glee moment to be in the presence
Of people who see the good in others
It’s a glee moment to be the one
Putting smiles back on people’s faces
It’s a glee moment to be the dose of joy
It’s a glee moment be the one able
To light up the whole room
It’s a glee moment to look at life
In a positive way and keep moving along
It’s a glee moment to overcome
All the lows of life and just
Keep on gliding with confidence
All the way to the finish line
With a wide smile that makes every moment
A glee moment
Enchantress has a cinematic feel to it and as you read, it probes you to think beyond the fantastic adventures author James Maxwell paints for you, and it is somehow congruent to our own world. How we do with power, the whole premise is mainly about hegemony. Who has what and which country is not supposed to possess this powerful weapon and so on.
In Enchantress, we see regions fighting and forming allies, while at the same time some allies are broken because of fear of being destroyed by the Primates who possess the most Essence that can destroy a whole nation in a blink of an eye if used carelessly. Essence simply symbolizes nuclear, a powerful weapon that can create havoc on an entire generation. Also Maxwell talks about the Lexicon, Runes, Lore, and the Enchanters, these symbolizes authority all rather power of the others. Then there is the Dunfolk who are viewed as primitive because they preserved their traditions and refuse to be corrupted by the outside world. Maxwell writes, “Dunfolk: We may think them primitive, but they have learned more about the use of medicinal herbs and plants than any of our battlefield surgeons.” Doesn’t that sound familiar? Of course it does, we are too quick to judge those who have chosen to follow their cultural beliefs and think them as primitive all rather backward people. It is important to remember that because of hegemony, some societies are losing touch with their own languages and traditions or in the name of following the civilized worlds, as such putting themselves in a vulnerable situation.
Overall, it’s a great read.
