The Other Side

Svalla My family recently relocated to a new place. This was after the government decided to show up with huge yellow ugly caterpillars one early morning and decided to bring the old houses down. The house we currently live in is literally big and cosy. The peeps around look bourgeois. Our previous place was lively…

Predicaments

Have you ever felt like you putting effort and at times you think that it’s not worth it? And that you’d rather be comfortable and let the ship sink? Do you seem to get tired of all the hullabaloos that keep draining you physically, emotionally, and mentally? At times you’d tend to say, “ah, si…

Step Up.

Amwadeghu, I thought my heart beat for her cause she was the reason. I have been having bouts of insomnia. The loss of sleep is becoming too much. I look like a zombie from the age of Z. At times I hopes she comes back. It’s not that we have broken up but the drift…

Asufaruto, Jari, -Fū.

I have not written anything for a while now. Nope. I have not posted anything for sometime now would be correct. I have several pieces that died in the notepad section of my phone and machine. It is sad at times to think that those sophisticated pieces will never see the light. The characters in…

Irregardless, He Moves.

He was tired – tired of his helplessness. He was tired of the fact that every time he tried, he would end up in the same place he’d started. And each time, a little worse than the former. His life was a constant struggle between hope and despair, never happiness. The city was not motherly….

Lonely

To Amwadeghu, It’s like I’m slowly killing myself. I’m trying so hard at the back of the shelf, it kind of seems the same everyday. I have been writing journals. Journals that will never see the light. I don’t know what is wrong or right anymore. I cannot state that I have a romantic life….

Substitute Teacher

Hey there. How has your day been? I hope it was as successful the way you wanted it. My name is Kazungu Kahindi, that does not mean much now, given I am new to you. However, Antony entrusted you to my care while he is away chasing dreams and the perfect bus pictures-he’s always had…

Nairobi Relationships.

You met at some bash, probably your friend’s birthday party because without connections in this era you will live to hurt the little guy down there. You exchanged contacts and within two weeks you both feel each other’s vibe. Having late night talks planning on meet ups and all. In a months time you are…

Masculinity – The New Age War Frontier

Male privilege coinage is often peddled by rabid feminists and less informed when deluged with the need for approval from their liberated girlfriends, and pursuit of culturally-endorsed validation. Which prior to date is tilted against the man. No critical statistic supports it.  To embrace masculinity you have to shelve the guilt-trodden idea of male privilege. Statistically and…

Larkshata

It gets tiresome each time a conversation heads down the lamentation path where eligible bachelor’s desire for control is usually the main trigger behind the pursuit of slightly younger women. This has never been the truth. An unmarried guy in his thirties preferring a 23 year old woman is not a condemnation to his older…
