With all the negative vybe coming around the country I thought of a poem to lift up spirits of my fellow kenyans. Here we go...

The earth feels old tonight,

And we who live and stand on the cold rim,

Face a new day.

It is raining everywhere,

As if the rain were mercy,

As if the rain were peace,

Peace falling on our hair.

Peace falling on our hearts.

Open your hearts tonight,

let them burn!

Let them light a way in the dark.

Let them one by one affirm there is hope for a start:

A new start:

A new leaf to turn in your life:

I say it will flower in our hands,

We shall go garlanded.

There is the fine fresh stuff of faith for a coat:

We shall go warm. We shall go on by the light of our hearts.

We shall burn mightily in the new year.

We shall go on together.

O you who stand alone on the rim of the earth and are cold,

I salute you here!
