Sickle Cell Disorder...Nipping it in the bud

June 19 is the day set aside to annually raise awareness about sickle cell disorder globally, not dedicating a post to this disease would be doing myself and others that could benefit a great disservice..really. This is actually belated as I was supposed to do this on the 19th but could not for one or two reasons so here we go. I previously wrote about my struggles with the disorder in this post and a few months after that post, I lost a niece to the complications of SCD. So sad to be dealt such a cruel hand but that's life. Hardly fair all the time.

All They Want...#BringBackOurGirls

Source All they want Is the right to life, dignity and education To live freely, walk freely and learn freely In a world that would bestow upon them respect All they want Is to bloom in the garden of life Flourishing like palm trees lacking naught In a world that would water their roots with love All they want Is to glisten like the morning dew Wetting the feet of early risers with love In a world that would support honest and hard work All they want Is to sit within the four walls of knowledge Shaping their paths like their luckier folks in the west In a world that would respect and support their vision All they want Is to laugh with abandon under the clear sky Infecting all around with their zest for life In a world that would embrace their gaeity All they want Is to feel the warmth of their mothers' embraces Shielding from the coldness of the elements In a world that would protect their smiles with grace All they want Is to live without fear in

Coca Cola & You

If you've been around long enough to read this post , then you would understand why I like drinking water a lot. However, I have not been able to resist the urge of taking Coca Cola at least once in a week until a friend sent me the article pasted hereafter. This is not a smear campaign in any way as I have nothing to profit from running this great brand down, but if it has to do with health, then it's pretty serious and should be handled with gravity. Plus the things I read made my intestines coil...pun intended. Seeing how much I love every one of you, I've decided to share this in my magnanimity. I'm veeery nice, right? Please be my guest.  Is this proof that Coke does not belong in you? Source Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. (I don't know about this one o)

The girl I left behind

As I wipe my brow and plonk down ruminating The many ways to accomplish the many tasks ahead The door flew open and in waltzed a stranger panting A very familiar pretty young face to behold Have we by any chance met somewhere? The lines of her face much resembled mine Her nose, cheekbones and the turn of the mouth Much like mine though her garbs speak of another clime Her physique quite like mine turned south Now I am sure I've met her before. She sits uninvited opposite me,  This familiar stranger regarding me with accusing eyes As she silently sends her queries to my mind so dim And for a brief moment, we are united albeit still shy Our bodies are two, yet become one in mind She asks, what had become of the lofty dreams? The fantasies we wove together in glee? Contemplating as I gaze upwards at the bright beams What does this stranger want from me now I am free? Many questions dancing on the tips of her lips She continues, what had become

Just Thankful

Source So I had another post entirely lined up for today but just had to change directions. Have you ever come close to death before? I mean stare down the deep dark abyss and bounce back? How did you feel? Jitters? Shivers? Shitty?

I Wish

Source I wish That wars and rumors of wars would cease That every nation would down war tools That our hearts and lives would know peace That every being would live by the rules I wish That an end would come to vanity That every heart would habour no thought impure That every mean soul would regain sanity That our heartlessness would find lasting cure I wish That an end would come to general fear That our lives would be worthy of care That everyone would live in good cheer That lasting peace would permeate the air I wish That every child in the world would be secure That they would walk freely, laugh freely and live freely That their young hearts would nobody darkly lure  That the promise of peace would turn to reality ideally I wish That every unlawful captive would enjoy sweet release That peace, love and harmony the world over increase That our humanity would by no means reduce That in every nation would reign peace. © Biolaleye and Ramblings of
