TAKE TIME AT THE MIRROR

      I will tell you why most people deperately abuse drugs; to face away from the world! It is analogous to when you close your eyes with your palms; you do not want to see it! However, with drugs is all about 'I do not want to feel it!' Sometimes the world can take almost everything from you, but you should never let it take 'you'. People call it 'losing hope,' but i like calling it 'losing yourself.' Those young men you see deep in the trenches blocking the drainage system are 'empty;' NO ONE IS INSIDE. He sometimes faintly comes back when he sobers up, and it scares the hell out of him. That is when "kutoa lock" comes in. To again get rid of the little boy who all he wanted was a good life; which you, as the adult he relied on, has failed the life mission. And because the boy is so nagging, you got to cut the communication lines; GOING DARK!!

     The person looking back at you in the mirror is the one you should be afraid of, slave to, or in short, all to. For better or for worse, that is the guy you need to be in better relationship with. Take time at the mirror. Watch yourself, they say body language matters. You see, that frowning all day is aging you, and the last time i checked you were just 25 years. Everything in this world is defined by the humans, even the God himself. I do not why they called him "God," but just by knowing that 'He'  existed, still exists and will aways exist, was the most ultimate discovery. All I am saying is, if you let them define you, you will lose your self-definition. Education cannot be the only thing to achieve, nor is money, or both. You can just be a happy being. It is not a retreat, nor a surrender, but a rest or a "planning phase."

     I live in a plot that has over 15 families, but i only know a handful of the husbands. That means, i know their kids more than they do! By now you know am jobless, and all i am is the home guy. Also, the neighbours knows it too. How could someone be working inside the house! Apart from the few electrical jobs that I have managed to do since graduation, i write essay and techincal articles. I hated the job at first. Five years in college, with a loan that is giving birth every minute at the Anniverssary Towers, and all i am is a 'composition' writer? Some jobs like writing, unless your name appears on the dailies, do not give you a social status. But, it offers you what you need in life. May be you are already in Cannan, though Moses died along the way.

     Believe me, no one absolutely knows where they are going, but you already know where you are. And that's the fun of it all. I was once about to ask God for the whole details of my life, after all they say 'knock and it shall be opened unto you.' Then I read Ecclesiastes 1:18; For in much wisdom is much grief, and he that increaseth knowledge increases sorrow. I do not attend church services, by the way, but i know that my body is a temple. I will always look at that mirror, and if i don't like the guy, THAT IS ALL I WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

About the Writer GEORGEMAINAMURIGI
OCCUPATION Engineer

My name is George Maina. I am a Graduate Electrical & Electronics Engineer.

My name is the only thing that has remained the same through out my life. Everything else fades, depreciates or weathers every other moment. In short, I am dying. And when I knew this, I changed my thinking. I do not eat or drink courtesy of the electrons, but due to the artfully implemented actions in my life. I am not the common rich, I am the new rich. I do not get affected by politics, I can have a Xi Hung as my Moi.  I do not support any football team, I am not a shareholder in Stamford or Old Trafford. I just watch the TWO games. I have an over-27-years old profile, and this space is just some square pixels in area. So, that is it.

The Qualified, not the Many, should rule: A technical issue of democracy.
Democracy is a government by the people who, if eligible, have equal rights on proposition, development and establishment of  the laws of the country. As such, the majority rules. My question is who should be eligible, and who should be the majority. Eligibility for an election in Kenya is; possession of an ID and Voters card. Seriously, just that?! Lets say, a herd has twenty sheep. Among the sheep, there are only Seven sheep that can be termed as intelligent enough to make the right de...
