When i was younger, i wrote a song called Maswali. That was back when i belived my way to riches and fame would be to hit the studio and release hit after hit until i got to 30 then retire on an island sippin Iced Southern Comfort till the big man upstairs gives the final curtain call i.e revokes my Liver’s Sorry Living Licence yani recalls my soul to his manufactures garage.I digress.
As human beings,we are designed to question alot that goes on around us.Why did she put on a weave? Why cant i get her? When will i move from home? Why does my Kabambe not have Bluetooth? Kwanini chapo ni ten bob mtaa na 50bob tao? Why are toyotas kenya uniform? Why do i waste my money buying a hangover? Swear ill never do it again and 4 days later im cursing the gods of Ruaraka? Im sure u get my drift by now.
Questions are a dime a dozen. (wish beers were but again I digress.) Getting someone to answer your questions is close to immposible. Maybe we should get Tom Cruise to help us seeing as to how he is the king of Mission Impossibles but again, naenda Kibera through Ngara. (got tired of saying i digress.)
Now when i started writing this post, it was my intention to protest about some stuff thats been going on in my life. Then i took a walk around town conducting some biashara and i realised that i dont have it bad at all. I may not be making as much money as i want to but hey, i can swing a kaloose Nando’s once in a while without chongaing viazi. I may not be driving around in a Range Sport Supercharged 2010 but i aint walking home coz the fare ill have to pay may just make the difference between an empty stomach or some ugali wembe na skumz. I may not have an IPhone 4 but naweza tweet mafans wa me when safaricom doesnt decide that they need my credit more than i do.
Im not saying I am content with where i am. I actually gotta make much more progress in this so called life. However, you gotta look around once in a while and realise that although you might not be the richest wo/man   on earth, you have an expanse of immaterial wealth that many crave to have. Your education, your job, your folks and family, your better/other half (terms and conditions apply) all this things you should not take for granted.

This lyf that we living,

full of hate n lies,

every step of the way,

when we walk thru the day,

the say lyf is a journey,

but where does it end,

is there any way to see whats beyond that bend,

acquaintances so many,

but are they really friends,

or are they only hia coz u the new trend,

sneakers n speakers they all come to pass,

bt we stil spend alot when their tenure lasts,

its all a facade,it will neva last,

why do we 4get what we learn so fast,

we always get the road that we choose to use or abuse,

its a choice to be what u are.

    We sometimes get so lost in complaining about the bad we become blind to the great things in our lives(that are more often than not such simple blessings!!!
