The untold secrets to my love!

                  You. Yes you in the corner with your head down low. 
Are you serious? For real are you serious? You know how bad I want you yet you prefer I run after you. Hide and seek It seems. I mean how long do I have to subject my delicate heart to this game! Bearing in mind I am not one to play games like that.

             You have me writing a short poem for you, hoping to lure you my way. My dear success story I am eagerly waiting for your arrival. No. I am not patient any longer I would be lying If I said was.

            Sleepless nights have become my portion with thoughts of you reverberating so loud in my head. I lose track of time as I turn aimlessly in my bed only to wake up to the empty side of it,
 wondering when you will come my way! Where are you anyway?

              You ought to know. I want to be more than just an acquaintance because you and I make a perfect combination, not a cliché.  Far from it. Allow yourself to feel the touch of my soft hands against yours, as we take East Africa by storm. I promise I will be the best companion, no need to be afraid.

              Do not worry yourself with insecurities about my other ambitions. You will always take center stage in my life. I will be compelled to learn Swahili If I have to, just to have a stronger bond with you.  Trust me I am not lying.
              I know a lot of people disappoint you, say they cherish you, lie! Work harder for you, lie! My dear success story I will let my actions speak louder than my words because I don't what to have my cake and eat it too.  
Whatever that means!

              Let me lean on you, share with you my darkest secrets, take you on a tour of my life, as I shamefully justify my reasons for being an introvert. 
Tell you what I am about because I know I need you more than you need me. After  all. You are who you are. Success! A king or queen in your own narrative and I am just a loyal subject devoted to your cause.

       Until I am summoned in your
         Presence.  I remain yours truly
    Sarah kahunde.

My Dearest!!!

                     We are puzzles.

                We are puzzles characterized by human nature,
comprised of different shapes, colors and complexity.
Triggering our minds to crack them, solve them, and salvage them.
You’re familiar with our faces of course. Does that necessitate  
you know us? No, because we are who we are "puzzles".

                  Some people never
  know our essence, impact and relevance. I like to
believe that we are all wounded souls embarking on a journey
to redeem ourselves, find solace, acceptance and respect, all
of which are embedded in LOVE. The nervous system of our
 entire existence, the greatest gift of mankind yet so
 controversial because most times the seekers do not even know
  what they’re seeking for.

                   We all have issues we fight on a daily
 basis, they crawl on us, we have not the ability or strength
to shake them off sometimes, leaving us prone to extreme
vulnerability call that the battle of the mind, the process
seems slow but eventually we take charge, I said the process
 seems slow but still we rise.

                    Then comes the skeletons in the closest
 covered in black lace, you can see them but only partially
 far from vivid and soon their existence with us begins to
 blur as they blend in and dwell in the lies we tell
 ourselves compelling our hearts to compromise, lament and
 despair ultimately opening the flood gates of insecurities in
 almost every aspect of our lives.

                      Life in the wild it
  seems, as the beast in some people comes out. Agitation
getting the best of them, survival for the fittest becomes
theme of  day as they take turns picking on anyone weak or
strong, tall or short trying to prove their worth and
 manpower hoping it will somehow pull the trigger and put a
 bullet in the emptiness they feel. Only to be humiliated and
 left completely hopeless in a pool of thoughts contemplating
 about what could have been.

                        So the next time you see him or
 her judge not what you see on the surface, some burdens are
too big to carry, to see, to watch, to listen to. Think not of
yourself only even when your ego is weighing you down, take a
second say a prayer to redeem yourself and your friends,    
redeem us O Lord from our sins, lead us not into
temptation and deliver us from all evil and proceed to claim 
your place in us. Take a second say a prayer!

             I remain yours truly Kahunde Sarah.
