Golden sunshine rising in all it’s glory
Beautiful African sun
Deprived to see it and tell the story
For fear of staring down a loaded gun
Deepest blue oceans with whitest waves
Beautiful African waters
Violence leading to too many graves
Saddened by unnessesary slaughters
Wild life and culture like no other
Beautiful African life
Family killing brother on brother
Husband killing his wife
Mountains forming a wonderous landscape
Beautiful African wonders
Mouths silenced and covered by tape
Fear filled sky of thunders
Sancturay exceptional in so many ways
Beautiful African home
Unsafe so no one stays
Escaping to a foreign dome
For Africa runs deep in these veins
Engraved in all that we are
Missing the beauty and empty plains
Longing to not be so far
Today I am feeling homesick… It’s difficult to explain. Just desperately need something familiar. I’m going to be an auntie, maybe the thought that I am missing out on so many things that are so important to me, makes me feel this way. Questioning if it is all worth it…the constant hard work, the worry, the tremendous sacrifice.
If anything, I am determined. Have no required skills, no desired abilities. But, after spending most mornings and afternoons listening to a tutor, I still feel, and hope, I can prove myself.
Nothing is impossible right? 4 Kids, Uni looming, this mom needs to get her ass in gear and get on with it quickly 😊.
I thought I would share a recent funny moment with you all.
Monday morning I woke up a little late and rushed the girls to get ready as I wanted to be at work early. Meagan asked if I can stop at the ATM so that she can withdraw some cash.
Feeling a little annoyed, knowing I won’t get to work when I wanted to, I reluctantly stopped. I checked with her that she knows how to withdraw money, she confirmed and popped out of the car to go to the ATM.
As I sit watching her, I see her lean closer to the screen…and then I hear her say “hello….hello….” I jumped out of the car and walked over, asking her what on earth she is doing.
“It said..your voice is your identity” she replied. At this point I was cracking up so much! So I told her it’s an add on the ATM screen for your phone banking.
Very calmly she replied; “well I thought I needed to speak to it before I got my money, so I just said hello”
Definitely made me chuckle 😂
