The Son of a Tailor

Placeholder Image

I am a son of a tailor poor in the eyes of the society yet rich in the eyes of God, my mother the tailor makes clothes for the whole town she makes them shine and look admirable fashionable and on the current trade as possible yet she can not afford to make a single dress for herself, simply because she cannot afford  a material to make one despite having all the equipments.


I am a son of a tailor whose legs are always swollen and sometimes she can barely walk because she spends 20 hours on the sewing machine trying to finish up every order she gets even   or else she won’t get paid, late at night when everyone is sleeping she is agonising in pain her blood pressure is up her eyes are tired and her body is soo weak just like a soldier who has just escaped death.

I am that son of a tailor who despite all this pain she forces herself to smile and pretend that everything is okay while at night she covers her head with the pillow and cries with pain because of the swollen legs, I can  hear her crying  and most of the time well coz of the pain in her torn soul, I Join her  but I never want to show her that I know what  is going on! nor will I want her to see me crying because my great grandfather(Grandpa Gachanja major)told me that men never cry, she cries not only because of the pain but because she has no Idea what her four children will eat, wear or even  where they will sleep if she does not get enough cash the following day.

I am the son of a tailor who is seen as a curse in the society simply because his mother is poor, they see impossibilities in me, yet they don’t know what am capable of, they see failure because success to them is defined on how much wealth or cash you can accumulate, but they don’t they see  power that is in me, (hehe poor lost generation )they don’t see that I can be there only hope come one day because I know that I might be useless in front of their eyes yet I might be the only source of Kemet wisdom my brain could be rich than that of Mensa Musa but  I don’t blame them it is the way they have been negatively programmed to look in one direction even if it is leading them to hell.

I am that son of that poor tailor whom they laugh at every single day when they are being driven to school while I walk to school but I don’t blame them, if only they could know how many beautiful  things I encounter  with while walking which are provided free by mother nature, like the ladybirds, flowers, the hardworking bees and termite as they work foot and mouth to finish their work yet they don’t complain, the sweet melodies sang by the hornbill birds,  the soothing beutical feeling created by the water flowing from different patrs of the town (swaaaaash)they live to eat, while I eat to live yet they call me poor, ooooooh!!!!! I forgot to them success is defined in wealth and money not the beautiful  things nature can offer, the good long life you get when you walk every day, and the happiness you feel when you smile back at the nature when you realize how blessed you are.


I am that son of a tailor who prefers not to go to where the path may lead and end up just like this other normal boring human beings, but rather follow my own path of happiness, and leave a train so that the future generations can follow, because if being happy is brought by wealth then Bill Gates won’t be busy looking for more to an extent of creating biological warfare like Ebola just for the sake of money, its like when he dies the money will buy him enternal life in heaven .

I am that son of a tailor who believes and lives by what Bob Malley  once said that money is just like number s  never ends. If it takes money to be happy tyour searcharch for happiness will never end.

As a son of a tailor, I urge you to find what makes you happy just like my mother (the tailor) made me believe never follow the crowd but create your own, be a king of your own empire after all the society if all Rotten.

It takes the whole village to raise a child

images  A Chinese bamboo tree is very famous because of its height and the market value that it holds, but all this greatness does not come with a silver spoon but it takes hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and patience before the farmer gets to enjoys the fruits of his or her labour.

It takes 5years of watering and fertilisation. every single day and if at any point if this does not happen the Chinese bamboo tree will die on the ground, after 5yrs in only 6 weeks it grows 90fits tall, isn’t   that amazing? but the question is does it take 5years or 6 weeks to grow well the answer is that it take 5years to nature it, to build that foundation, to build the credibility.

What if the parents today applied that philosophy and use it to bring up their children, we won’t be having the likes of Donald Trump but rather the likes of Paul Kagame, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and many more whose lives changed millions of people.

The parents nowadays have lost track in bringing up their children that is why we have a generation of young people who cannot give a seat to olds folks  or a pregnant  woman in  a bus or a train, a generation that cannot take risk but they expect everything to be done for thema generation of cowards, I was brought up in a way that whenever I did anything wrong whoever who was older had the right to punish me on behalf of my mother and he or she will make sure that my mother knows and that is why I became who I am today, it was the mandate of the whole town or village to bring up a child in the right way. In other words parents during those days planted a bamboo tree in their young ones and let the society help in fertilising and watering it until when it broke the ground, and with that, they were able to produce strong courageous and fearless members of the society.

They canned you when you were young, they reasoned with you when you were a teenager and once you were 18yrs old now you could decide for yourself, unlike this lost generation whereby the Kids can say what they want to whoever they want and get away with it, they can publicise their bodies on social media for the sake of likes  and the parents do nothing, can’t we see that we are heading in the wrong direction.

Our children follow what we teach them and what we do, kids will never hate discriminate, love or be racist if they were not either taught by their parents or the society at large, therefore I say that we still have room  to change as parents to make the world a better place because other planets are occupied already.


Rise Above

You only need water to live a healthy life

waterWater the most common substance in the universe,  but the question is where did it come from?, why is it soo eminent into our lives, it cover 70% of the earth surface and soo is our body, this ancient element has been there since the bygone age of the creation of the earth by the Almighty and until now it is still very very essential to us in our daily lives.

”Water is life ”is a slogan that has been there since the time of Adam and Eve it was there long before the earth was created  it covered the whole surface of the earth at that time, you will agree with me that it is a magnificent element that gives life to plants, the sea creatures, and the human beings because every time a mother is about to deliver a baby you hear them shouting ”oooooh ooh the water just broke so technically that fluid in the mother’s womb is what preserves that child that is why it makes 70% of the human body.

When I was young I inherited this behaviour of taking a lot of tea from my  tenacious African queen or my mother, I used to take a minimum of ten cups of tea per day, well I thought at that time that this was not harmful to my body, moreover it was just tea, in 2009 I left my country to Bahrain, where this habit became even more vehement, later on I started being sick, more often, I had fever like every week  and flue was part of me just like a gun is to  soldier, or like lies is to a politician, hospital and pharmacy became my most favourite centers, my friends used call me a dead man walking, I even almost lost my eyesight, a headache made my head feel like it was 10000 pounds heavy, I used to blame God for allowing this to happen to me little did I know it was not Him but me.

One day I came across an article that talked about water being used as medicine in Japan so I said that I was going to try it out, so I did as the article said which was to take 4 glasses of water in the morning after waking up then wait for 45minutes before taking breakfast, for the first few weeks it was very difficult, but after some few weeks it was okay.

After  the third week I started seeing changes in  the body my skin became healthy and shiny once again, my digestion became better, the urine became clean and pure my eyesight improved I could see well and the light  especially the sunlight never affected me anymore, I never get fever anymore like I used too and I get it I never rush to the pharmacy, because all ou need is H20 to bring down your body temperature

Water carries a very great and strong healing power especially the alkaline water because your body functions well in an alkaline state than in an acidic state

Define Your Purpose In Life

via Daily Prompt: Lifestyle  let me first start by saying that our lifestyles  especially in this  period of time where there is tremendous  competition in all aspects of life be it in fashion, eating habits, how much wealth you have accumulated and soo on and soo forth we are soo desperate to fit into the society and by doing soo we end ruining our health, relationship and  many other things which could be avoided simply  by taking time to discover ourselves and what do we really want in life, maybe think about what is our mission here on earth, we are all here for a certain purpose that’s why we have different names, appearance and our habits are also the same, so lets find  our purpose on this planet and follow that passion in us, let us creates new paths for our future generations

Fly With Me

I wish  was dove then I would fly the whole world preaching peace love and harmony  every human being and creature I fly upon,  I would start my journey in the Nyika plantues of the grassland savannah of Kenya  and remind  them of a 1000  men and women who were slaughtered during the 2007 post-election violence, my tent will be pitched there  until they all understand that they are one people and that a kikuyu goes to borrow salt from a luo  because he or she is the only neighbour a kalejin depends on a Nandi when there is hunger and famine, I will not even eat or drink until when they understand that the power belongs to them and not to the politicians until they know that they are the driving force of that country aa well as  the economy, as soon as they understand, thats when  I will spray the whole entire country with perfumes of forgiveness, love, and humanity, shade all my feathers which they will use  whenever the love seems to fade away they will use them as  a sigh to remind them from where they came from, and alaas!!!!!  my mission will be completed in kenya
I will fly over the Murchison falls of Uganda and I will see   president Kaguta Yoweri Museveni’s leadership crumbling down because I will have awaken my sleeping sons and daughters who will have risen up to the glory and will be rulling themselves.since there will not be soo much to do in UgandaI  will extend my journey to the heart of Africa Rwanda and give Kagame a High five and a hug for the great work he has done after the Rwanda genocide in 1994, I would stay for some few days  there and breath in the fresh air of the this wonderfull country  eat the best cuisines prepared by the most talented queens of the East.
I will continue with this magnificent journey to  what is  todays Babylon (USA) I will go there with the intention of destroying this sinful county but I shall be stopped by the innocent souls of young children, women,and men,  and for the sake of them I will do an emergency evacuation then  afterwards I will burn it with flames of fire and make sure it disappears  from  face of the earth, because the problems it has caused our mother earth is unbearable. It has killed thousands in Iraq, Vietnam,  syria, Libya,sudan and many others just to mention a few, the blood of this innocent souls keeps on crying everyday yet no one is there to listen to them, because I know once I destroy her then the whole world will be in peace, No war, no global warming, no illness both physical and mentally, no hunger, or famine, no man-made calamities.
After this is done I will take a long vacation at countryside in the Caribbean and enjoy sweet Bachata salsa mixed with some African jazz  music while sipping glass super cold virgin mojito while waiting for my hot Ugali and sukuma wiki to be delivered from the coastal part of Kenya.
From then I will sleep in peace every single night knowing that I will have brought peace to this beautiful mother earth, and this my friends is a dream that I  will  live and maybe die  for, because we might say that its too late to give it a try but I know only wjen its dark enough can you see the stars
