The Realities Of 2020


A year of fright, of humiliation, of despair

A year of insanity, of adversities, of terrible losses

A year of assault, of battered hopes, of crushed faiths

A year of insecurity, of hideaways, of distrust

A year of zero antidotes to a monstrous quandary


A year of sharing, of caring, of love

A year of survival, of self-discovery, of hopeless hope.

A year of family togetherness and  creativity


A year we won’t forget in a flash!

We learned. Yes, we learned, 2020!

We learned;

To never take anything or anyone for granted

To run when we should run and hide when we should hide

It’s possible to pass a day without a meal or a tantalising one

Forced social distancing and isolation does not hurt as bad as losing a life.

How to stick with family 24/7

How to make masks

How to cook, draw, write and many more

How to stay calm in a horrifying situation

Bigger Lessons

Planning is an important life tool

How to economise

Our lives lie in our carefulness and our determination to protect it.

Following safety measures is as important as life itself.

Without God’s interventions, man is finished!

I so much believe that 2021 isn’t going to end this way.

There are times when no one can save you when there will be no solution. At that time you are left with nothing but the end. As the end closes in, all you have to do is run. Runaway from the end. Run before the end. At that time faith is a powerful tool.


Just Curious

Intimidating tall legs

That shorten short legs

When you lose this race

Will it be hard to face?

Will you get mystified?

Or think it’s a lie?

Will you tell a quirk

About how you’re bred?

How you’re drilled to gain

The grounds ahead to win?

Just curious.

Intimidating huge body

Soaring above a wimpy body

When this pansy veers your vim,

Will you be filled with shame?

Will you fuss over the travesty

Of a long insulated dignity?

Will you sing to fellow hawks

The song of mutilated claws?

How you’ll make them furious

For strength ever montrous?

Just curious.

Life Quote |Maya Angelou

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens or how bad it seems today, life does go on and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he / she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and a tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as making a ‘life’. I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s witt on both hands; you need to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
