been long...

Good people,i am here after a long spell.soul searching,making decisions that will help not only me..i am saying goodbye to the city and heading to my rural home.Here,i will be of greater use to the society that raised me.many..i mean many women my age have succumbed to HIV AIDS and left children with their grandparents.Poverty is rampant in my village,the press says it but you got to see it..the situation is bad.If i stay in Nairobi and go home all scrubbed and pretty,i will be living a lie..hence i will get down and dirty literally soil my manicured nails so a child can have a chance like i did.I will register an NGO,start making uji(porridge)daily for these orphans who seriously speaking sleep hungry.Funds allowing,i will pair with my mum and do food too.I cannot live with the burden in my community,i choose to ease it.And i will.Check this space out....please pray for me

Pascaline has left the shining lights of the city,
Deceitful their twinkle is.
She tip toes with a candle burning,
Her heart the darkness lighting.
winking at kids with a little food,
In a country where millions are starving.
I want to follow her,
Going back home
With eyes and ears for poverty.
And lessons in pocket from the city.

This city eats peoples' souls,
And they starve even here.
I know you will keep watch,
and the soils will pedicure you for free,
and the souls you touch bodicure you
and so many fingers manicure you.

Children will smile again,
As you set your natural state house there,
Grannies will cry again,
As your eyes meet theirs,
Blessings each day will be free.

Pascaline has lit a big fire,
that burns in all of our minds,
Walk Pacal like the lamb,
Be there to open the eyes of
blind kings and queens.
Pascaline Princess!

I will pray for you. Take care. It is noble to go back to your village to help them and the land.
You are brave, and I thank you for that act of kindness.
