Does she ever
Take a minute and pause
See the world through her mother's eyes
Through her tears
Does he ever
Reconsider his actions
Knowing it will hurt, tear and reap somebody out there??
Does she take a minute
Before closing that door with a man she knows not
And reconsider what she is binding herself to??
Does he pause that drink
And wonder that he could be spending the only cent his father had?
The sweat of his daddy's brows he misuses in alcohol
Before, she lets go of her most priced possessions
Does she ever remember her dreams as a child??
Did she turn up as she dreamed
Or her whole life seems to be a dream to her??
He finds comfort in being carried by the wind
Never standing on his ground like a man
Never making his daddy proud
Campus happened we like to say
So now she will dress like a slut
As she never considers the results
Her siblings look up to her
But with time they grow past her
He was the hope of the family
but now he hopelessly drinks around the village
Did he ever pause to think??
Did she ever reconsider??
It sounds absurd being in campus and not having pleasure
Pleasure in women, in men, in weed, in alcohol
But pause and think
Think about the struggles that your parents underwent to bring you here
If not, at least your mum's prayers should not fall on tough dry grounds
And if not, then let your siblings find a model in you
Show me your friends and definitely I can sketch you up
Do you ever pause and think
There's a long term effect to our habits
In the long run brother, you've got to decide
Stand on your own two feet
Ju ni wewe tu unaelewa unakotoka
Girl, carry yourself with all the dignity and respect
I don't wanna have kids look me in the eye and say:
"mama, ain't I glad i dint turn out to be like you!!!!"
The choices we make
Form the lives we live tomorrow.
##I am thinking aloud because it is painful to watch treasures of this world die with so much treasure and potential in them. It Sucks!!!!
