Hello friend! It’s been ages since we last spoke. How have you been?

Today, I woke up with some thoughts that made me really sick and I have tried writing them below. Straight from my aching heart.

I’m Sick and Tired!

Of unmet citizen’s needs,

Of mediocrity over meritocracy,

Of SARs and strikes,

Of disguise and dead democracy,

Of easy killings,

Of no reforms,

Of adult-liars and young accomplices,

Of aborted aspirations,

Of hikes that remain high,

Of masking up,

Of missing consciences,

Of backstabbing and fake friendships,

Of promises unfulfilled,

Of broken heart, and

Of blind loyalty.

Today, I just want to return to the 5 years old me, with my socks pulled to the knees,

Singing with friends…

Day by Day

Dear Lord, of Thee three things I pray

To see Thee more Clearly

To love Thee more dearly

To follow Thee more nearly

Day by Day
