Come to think of love. Huh! What is love? What is the right age to fall in love? Who is the right person to fall in love with? I don’t think if there is more love than that a mother gives to his/her child. I mean 9 good months of pregnancy,labor pain all that effort raising a toddler who couldn’t lift his/her feet up to make a step, you know what, that’s what i call pure love. To my fellow children who never had a chance to embrace or set an eye on their mother’s face ,well i want you to know she loved you and she loves you. Its only God’s plans that mam left without visualizing the love to you , but believe me the 9 months carrying you in her womb and loosing her life after giving birth to you. That’s love!
That man who was responsible for your pregnancy, that person you never got a chance to know he is you dad, that man also loves you i what you to know that. I might seem crazy or out of my mind and am sure you are questioning yourself, ‘This lady doesn’t know my daddy dumped me and my mam’ well i have been there i know how it feels. Come to think of it ,were it not for circumstances (which are well know by him) that man loves you and its just that he hasn’t proven it to you. The love feels different. Parental love. Pure love. The bond so strong. Think of it , does it hit you hard ? Well be grateful if daddy and mammy have always shown you how much they love you. Am sure my daddy wherever he is , loves me …. And i love him.
We are a generation wasting our smart fresh and energetic brains getting ourselves into toxic relationships ,in the name of LOVE . Teenager’s have clotted their minds with a fake web they call love. Darling that man/lady you call ,Bae ,Babe and all other names you call each other doesn’t love you as much as your parents and God the almighty do . You are lost. I don’t know the right man/lady for you ,the right time for you to claim to be loved but i want you to have in mind is that no love can suppress that of your parents and that of the Lord God. It sadden my heart to see the children of my land Afrika disrespecting our parents from whom we sprouted , in the name of love. Love by a good for nothing man/lady who lost his focus in life before you even came to his/her life.
Let me not sound harsh. This is an advice am giving myself and my fellow youths, love is there, it was there and it will be there. Let’s appreciate every stage of life and don’t just rush into things that will cost us. Ladies in house, ( aaahhh) Mr right always comes and that is if you will be patient. you see that tall ,dark and………!! He is going to come. We getting cursed by our parents because of misbehaving ,we think we’ve found love that drives us to throw our parents away. It will be too late my friend. That mama mboga you threw her sukuma on her face when she told you to help her while she was cutting cabbage for another customer ,so that you can go see that kaboy child before he leaves for Kibarua you walked away ,is the woman you will need for you to be where you were destined to be.
My brothers, this lady who is telling you not help your mam because she needs her nails fixed and that’s because of peer pressure, you’ll suffer. Beautiful,God fearing and professional ladies are there ,you will find them in your line of duty or else where. Trust the process bro don’t just rush ,you end up impregnate very young girls by the name of LOVE. We have loosed our morals and culture indulging ourselves into acts that bring us more harm than good. There are many diseases out here and we know them. We have given them a blind eye and a dumb ear. Where is our Ubuntu Culture? We’ve lost it completely. Lets just appreciate each stage of life and trust its process. we a loosing direction and focus. At our 20’s is when we are innovative enough, smart enough to concentrate on that concept that will change the world. Let’s not get ourselves into many things, we are loosing direction and heading the wrong way.
God created us out of love. He made sure everything was available for us before he allowed us to this world. That is genuine love from THEE. He made different stages of life that time will come you will need to have a companion and he himself will make it possible for you to meet you better half. No conflict, parents of both sides will celebrate the getting together of their children to a bond of pure love. And that’s when you begin to love, live and laugh.
What will it cost you to just follow the life process as it takes you? Have a meeting with the committee in your head, plan your life stages from studies,career, courtship ,engagement and finally that marriage. By this you will focus on every stage properly and have ample time to think of where you’ve gone wrong and rectify. I believe love and marriage will come automatically at the right time. You don’t just wake up smartly dressed you walk out of your house going to look for love. No it does not work that way. Don’t get carried away by these soaps we watch. Let’s face life as it is.
Its okay and very okay to have friends of different gender. But watch out, at the age of 13 with that boy at the age of 15 claiming you love one another and are in a “RELATIONSHIP” . what kind of love is it?
We have had many cases in our country Kenya the past few months where young university students stub one another to death others committed suicide reason being the so called “LOVE” .We lost that engineer, that Doctor , that future Mr President because of the “love” they claim to have for each other which is not even genuine love. Where are we headed?
‘Do not hold onto something that will end up destroying you , because you invested so much time and efforts at the wrong time ,free your soul from that imprisonment, Your curiosity should not control you to rush into things which can wait instead control it to wait for the right time and way of handling them. You are the power.
