I Came To Win

Image

I wish today it would rain all day
Maybe that will kinda make the pain go away
Trying to forgive you for abandoning me
Praying but I think I’m still an angel away
Angel away, yeah strange in a way
Maybe that is why I chase strangers away
They got their guns out aiming at me
But I become Neo when they’re aiming at me
Me, me, me against them
Me against enemies, me against friends
Somehow they both seem to become one
A sea full of sharks and they all smell blood
They start coming and I start rising
Must be surprising, I’m just amazing
I win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher
More fire

I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

Everybody wanna try to box me in
Suffocating every time it locks me in
Paint their own pictures then they crop me in
But I will remain where the top begins
Cause I am not a word, I am not a line
I am not a girl that can ever be defined
I am not fly, I am levitation
I represent an entire generation
I hear the criticism loud and clear
That is how I know that the time is near
So we become alive in a time of fear
And I ain’t got no motherfucking time to spare
Cry my eyes out for days upon days
Such a heavy burden placed upon me
But when you go hard your nay’s become yay’s
Yankee Stadium with Jay-Z and Kanyes!!!

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Man in the Arena

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Sucker Punch

Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can’t know what form they’ll take – one day, Old man, next day, Little girl. But don’t let appearances fool you. They can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they’re not here to fight our battles. But to whisper from our hearts. Reminding that it’s us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.

You can deny angels exist, convince ourselves they can’t be real. But they show up anyway, at strange places and at strange times. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They’ll shout through demons if they have to. Daring us, challenging us to fight.

 And finally. This question. The mystery of whose story it will be, of who draws the curtain. Who is it that chooses our steps in a dance? Who drives us mad, lashes us with whips, crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it that tells all these things?

Who honors those we love with the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us, and at the same time sings that we’ll never die? Who teaches us what’s real, and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live, and what we’ll die to defend? Who chains us, and who holds the key to set us free?

It’s you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight!

Kenya Land Registry

KenyaLandRegistry.com

KenyaLandRegistry.com (“KLR”) is NOT a government service. This is a free, private sector initiative seeking to reduce fraud in the property market. KLR has the following aims:

1. To protect land owners by helping you publicise your ownership of your land. This deters fraudsters from selling your land using falsified documents (e.g. fake titles, fake ID cards). Any unsuspecting buyer trying to buy your land can quickly find your contact details here and get in touch with you directly.

2. To protect land buyers. Before buying land you can check on KLR and get the contact details of the person claiming to be the owner. KLR acts as an additional due diligence step to help you get the contact details of the people claiming to be the owners of the land. KLR cannot replace an official land title search at the Ministry of Lands. KLR is however useful in the event that a fake titles or a fake ID is being used, and other events in which an official search at the Ministry of Lands might not help.

3. Helps people with title documents to the same land contact each other, meet and resolve the problem. Many people in Kenya have title documents to the same property and only learn about it much later. By searching KLR using your land reference number, you can get the contact details of other people who, unknowingly or otherwise, have the same title documents as you.

No man but feels more of a man in the world if he have a bit of ground that he can call his own. However small it is on the surface, it is four thousand miles deep; and that is a very handsome property. ~Charles Dudley Warner
