Daily Prompt: Out of Your Reach

Was there a toy or thing you always wanted as a child, during the holidays or on your birthday, but never received? Tell us about it.

Hmmmn!!! for me thats a very hard one, “he must have had a very great childhood” you may say, but to surprise you the reverse is the case, infact the reason why it is a difficult topic for me to talk about is the fact that I don’t know which one of my ‘out of reach’ experience I would like to share.

Christmas is the climax of the year for us, we make the best of family moments, get our new clothes, enough to eat and drink (minus alchohol *hehehe*), great time with the television watching the story of Jesus over and over again. But as for getting gift and all of that… well that is just out of the question

Out of it all, I guess bicycle is the toy I would have love to have that was out of my reach, as much as my parent cared for my needs to the best of their ability and put priority on my education, I was told I would have gotten a bicycle but for the fact that I could injure myself with it.

Getting a bit older I got to know that, my parent’s polite way of saying no to my request is to make me see reasons why my desires could be bad for me.

The voice of social justice, social change and activism. At 42 years of age In May of 1961, Nelson Mandela gave his first-ever interview to ITN reporter Brian Widlake



A phrase i recently stumbled across that could not but arouse imagination, and now am lost in thought of this “Where do i go? to the left images3where nothing is right or to the right where nothing is left?”

Mama once said to me; be good, love your neighbour as yourself, be morally upright, diligent and discipline, then the sky will be the starting point of my greatness.

Alas! all i have seen is the direct opposite of what i was made to believe, norms and values becoming out of fashion, hard work and dignity been swept under the carpet of greed, corruption rule at the peak of authority, our priest and clergy an opposite of what they should be

Where did it all go wrong, children of the upright with no spoon in their mouth, whose responsibility is it to restore sanity, where else is left to go?

some day i know i’ll have to tell my children to take a stand but what part of the polarity should they be? Is it the right where the world have turned their back against or the left where sanity is lost?

Of this i sit and ponder.
