He is a mess but I think its not intentional, I have seen both side of him, The extremely good and well collected side, As well as the broken and lost side. But he seems to be at the negative edge, He is only thinking of how many times he has messed up, And putting it as if he only messes up, Not allowing himself to also see his good side. Yes, he knows what to do to correct things, But its not that easy, Plus he is not good at opening up when depressed, He prefer to confine into his beer and few smokes. I wish I could be able to make him understand, How speciala and unique he is, But for now, I will allow him some time to himself and say a prayer.
Everyday if not every minute, You keep pointing out on what I should change, Never giving me an opportunirty to be me, Or at atleast listen to me. Constant comparing me to her and him, Will never fix what you think is broken in me, Cause am not broken, Am simply me.
Have you ever worked on a dream, but nothing seem to work out. You spend endless hours trying everything that you can think of, Researching and looking for anything that can help you succeed in it. But nope, everything gives you a sad defeated face. Then the defeated voice try to make you feel better, By telling you that some dreams are never meant to succeed, That's its okay to fail and forget about such dreams, But it doesn't last for long because more of you want that dream to come true. As much as am pushing harder and harder, And nothing seems to work, I still desire for this dream to come true, So I guess, I will just keep pushing.
It reaches a point you just want to be with only yourself, Only you own company seems fitting and easy, So you ''vanish'' for sometime, I guess now that's ''hibernating". Life can be stressing sometimes, And people could be adding to that stress, Or maybe you need to deal with it on your own, Or you just need to stay calm and let it be. Life can also be noisy, Occupied with all kind of stuff, 24/7 no time to experience calmness, Perfct time to "hibernate" How do you do your hibernation? Some may chose to cut off any communication with the rest of the world during that time, No phones or group meetings with friends, They allow themselves to be completely alone. This includes quiting social media, switching off phones, Canceling meetings and fun activities, And ensuring that they are "alone''. Does it help? Sure it does. Once you shut all the noise coming from outside, You get to listen to the answere coming from within. You are also able to experience peace and calmness, See things clearly and able to analyze each decision & action. You get to appreach your own company and friendship, Loving yourself to a whole near level. Thats when your passion manifests itself, Giving birth to great dreams.
Do we really consider both side of human-wildlife conflicts? That is damaged caused to both wildlife and humans. Or do we incline on one side and neglect the other party.
Wildlife conservation success depends on people’s good will. As much as the wildlife is considered voiceless, we should not turn a blinding eye to the affected humans. We can start by trying to put ourselves into their shoes. Then maybe we can have a snippet of what human-wildlife conflicts impact their livelihood.
Habitat fragmentation and land encroachment are the major causes of human-wildlife conflicts. Conservationist have been advising and fighting about it for sometime now. And the governments have started reclaiming back such land. Although we are yet way behind to accomplish something conclusive. Wildlife land still remain under attack.
But does this means it okay to have humans hurt or killed by wildlife when they cross path?
I don’t think so. Human life is equally important as that of the wildlife. Each of these species will do anything to defend themselves when death threats face them. So if wildlife kills humans or the other way round, before we harshly judge humans . We should understand all the facts right.
Was the human with conservation areas? Was the wildlife outside their protected areas? Was their death as a result of defence? What were the available options at that particular time for both parties? With all these answers then we can ahead and do the ”blaming game’.
We live Lake Nakuru National Park and it helped me experience human-wildlife conflicts first hand. During my internship at the Hell’s Gate National Park, I was able to get to experience the conservation bodies part. And it can be a very tricky situation that needs 100% fairness.
Wildlife being wildlife will do what they do best irregardless of where they are. So if they found themselves in your homestead and you have livestock. Then that’s food for them. You are required to call wildlife rangers in such cases. You have to secure yourself, family and maybe your livestock before you get courage to make that call. Not forgetting what may happen as you wait for the response team to show-up. And this confirms how things can get really messy and complicated.
Baboons needs few minutes to turn everything upside down.
Did you know that baboons from Lake Nakuru National Park can distinguish between a female from the male? Through dress code. And they don’t fear females, they consider them weak. They will easily chase after the males. And run away from the males. Next time you pay Lake Nakuru National Park a visit, ensure you interact with the locals. And ask them about the baboon menace. Or visit Langa Langa hospital in Nakuru town and ask about the people admitted as a result of baboon attack.
What do we do?

As I was having a conversation with one of my friends during those lazy weekends. His friend joined us and I unknowingly zoomed out. I slowed down contributing to the talk. And shortly afterwards, I excused myself.
One time while I was still in campus. We were just chatting about random topics. Then a topic about roles of females in the community came up. To be specific, role of a wife.
As much as you may disagree with someone on something, you have to respect each other’s opinion.
Few days ago our primary schools did their final exams.
And our news were full of girls who sat the exams pregnant. While others end up giving birth during the exams. They still did the exams. But at the hospitals. With all the childbirth pain, police and invigilators “guard” them while they did the papers.
I have not given birth myself. But from the few friends I have been with during that period. That state begs for support and patient , and not stress. So will it not be unfair to expect these girls to perform any better in those exams. Is KCPE (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education) or any other exams, a matter of life and death?
Not forgetting those ”men” who impregnated these poor girls. Are they even qualify to be called men. How do you sleep with a minor and allow yourself a peaceful night? There are literally babies whose decision-making is weak. So you are the one in charge. And you decide to destroy their future.
Surprising enough, these so called men. Range from religious leaders, older men, business personnels, relatives, among others. Old enough men to understand the consequences of their actions.
They gladly disappear after impregnating the little girls and laws unsuccessfully bring them to justice. The girl’s parents left to deal with the aftermath.
If it was your daughter, would you see it normal? Do nothing about it and move on with life. Its a sad and shameful situation to all of us.
What are we doing to protect the young ones? The minor rapists still evade the long arm of the law. We keep going to the streets, making threats and promises made in return. But all that goes to waste after a short while. The problems remain the same.
The poor girl child continue being subjected to motherhood before they even embrace adulthood. Sadly we have reached a point whereby, everyone for themselves, GOD for us all.
All in all, lets not give up on the girl child efforts yet. The few men who have proved to be useless and monsters, will get what they have been looking for. Jesus himself told us to be like children. He loves children and those who mess up with them , will get their punishment soon or later.
Lets be each other’s sister. Reach out to the girls in the vurnable areas and do something. To prevent any of them going through such in the future. No girl should be denied an opprotunity to fully enjoy their childhood.
