KNOCK KNOCK !!!

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA VERSION OF KNOCK

KNOCK!!

As a boy me, my mum and dad shared a game,

We played it every school morning till I was six,

My mum would come to wake me up,

And I would pretend to be so asleep,

Then she would go and call my dad,

Who would come to me saying these words,

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA”.

I’d pretend to sleep till he got right close to my bed,

Then I would get up, and jump right into his arms,

Roaring like a simba, and then say to him, “good morning papa!!”

He would kiss me on the fore head and tell me how much he loved me.

We all shared a game

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

This was no any ordinary roar

More than a simba’s roar

It was a roar of faith.

Until that day when the ROAR never came

Then my uncle wakes up one morning

And takes me on a never ending ride past sugar cane plantations,

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

Until we reach a place with a great number of people, with long faces.

A confused of a boy I entered the compound’s gates with my cousins.

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

We reached a hut with too many elderly people

Seated in a fashion like lions in mourning

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

Then I saw my mum seated sad and ran to her

Before I got to her I saw my dad’s pic

And diverted my ran to a different direction towards it,

Only to be confronted by this big box,

I climbed onto a stool to see what was in,

And it happened to be him.

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

I said hoping that he would wake up and hold me into his arms

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

I said hoping that he would wake up and kiss me in the fore head

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

I said hoping that he would wake up and tell me how much he loved me

Then my mum pulls me away before my papa even says a word

And for years he hasn’t said a word,

And so 16 years later I write these words

For the little boy in me who still awaits his father’s SIMBA ROAR

Papa come home ‘cause I miss you

I miss you waking me up in the morning and telling me you love me,

Papa come home ‘cause there are things I don’t know and thought you could teach me

How to shave,

How to play table tennis,

How to talk to a lady,

How to walk like a man,

Papa come home, ‘cause I want you back and I want to be an engineer just like you.

And 16 years later this little boy cries in me and so I write these words

And try to heal

And try to father myself,

And dream like a father,

 Who says the words my father did not live to forever say

ROAR LIKE A SIMBA

For every lesson I fail to teach here

Remember these words

Shave in one direction with strong deliberate strokes to avoid irritation,

Thus you stay focused in your faith

                                 Dribble the page with the brilliance of your ball point pen,

Thus you work hard and smart in your walk of faith

Walk like Joseph and your Mary will come to you

You be good and you will meet good people in your walk in faith.

No longer will I be there to roar for you

So you must learn to roar for yourself,

ROAR ROARdown the doors of tribalism and poverty that I could not,

ROAR ROARon doors of opportunities for your friends and family,

ROAR ROARon diligence for the sake of your children,

ROAR ROARfor you not for me as long as you are free these cave can’t contain my spirit

The best of me still lives in you

ROAR ROARwith the knowledge that you are my son and you are my daughter

But you are not my choices

Yes we are our father’s sons and daughters

But we are not their choices

But despite their absence we are still here

Still ALIVE, still BREATHING

With the God given power to change this world to the better,

One little boy and one little girl at a time

We will always roar

And so I Say

ROAR ROAR

Who’s there?

We are!!!

PLEASE HAVE A HEART FOR HER!!!

It’s really hard seeing a mother going through pain and be able to do nothing about it…It similarly hurts in the same magnitude to see those with the ability to help their parents through life and they do nothing about it.I understand sometimes life is ‘unfair’ but you not taking care of your parent and you can, makes a better definition of ‘UNFAIR’…she carried you for nine months for nine months…protected you from every harm…took the hurt just to ensure you were okay….she took you to school however hard things were on her..she clothed you…MEN!! now look at you…all shining, a good education, a good life and you don’t care about her…SHAME ON YOU!!! after all she went through, for you…GET SERIOUS AND DO YOUR FAIR PART!!!

Let me tell you something..whether she is blind, has no education, poor, old, black, white, healthy, sick , high-tempered and whatever yours is..she is still your mother. Be there for her. That is something you can’t change….It’s a life time contract….SHE WILL AND WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR MOTHER. Show her that you are the child she sacrificed for..make her feel she is appreciated…show you love her…show you care…thank God for her, always remember her when you pray…sing praises to her. Always be patient to give her a hearing however right or wrong she may be. Correct her politely if she is wrong….Don’t make her feel worse.She is your mother. Be the child she asked God for…Be a blessing to her not a fast push to her grave. be honest with her…and surely your blessing will come from heaven…

I open this to every one..please share your story with us and the world in relation to the same…any questions too. All will be appreciated…God bless you.

PUSH ON (IT’S NEVER EASY YOU KNOW?).

faithWhen things get tough on you,

Remember to pray.

When no one is there for you,

Please have faith,

the lord is for you.

When things get tough and you feel like giving up,

Let me ask, was the world easy on Jesus?

Besides he was the son of God, but he never did give up,

Though painful it was, He proved his stand.

Things will never be as you want them,But remember to always push on.

You might have no physical parent,

But remember the lord is your parent.

When they call you “Orphan”,

say thank you, and tell them how blind they are not to see what a great parent you have.

When the laugh at you and don’t want you to be a part of their company,

Tell them i have the best company of all.

When they say your marriage is going to be temporary,

Tell them with Jesus in My marriage, that’s just a rumor.

When the teacher says your are good for nothing,

say the lord knows am worth something,

and i have a better destiny.

When no one understands you,

Be proud because you are different.

Here is a little something for you, hope it will be a blessing to you? and if it is please don’t hesitate to come back and share your testimony with us.God bless you all.

THE TOP 6 CALORIE BURNING WORKOUTS.

THE TOP 6 CALORIEBURNING WORKOUTS

While there is no secret formula for losing weight (It all comes down to simple math: You must burn more calories than you consume), there are smarter, faster ways to achieve your goals. The following six workouts  are proven to be the most heart-pumping, sweat-producing, and consequently most efficient calorie-burning and weight-loss-inducing exercises out there

e. Do one, or a combination of many, regularly, and watch the weight fall off.

1. Kickboxing: 800 calories per hour

Kickboxing offers a great full-body workout because it requires you to use every major muscle group and includes interval training. Your heart rate will soar and stabilize several times throughout the class, which is optimal for weight loss. 24 Hour Fitness clubs report that attendees of their Turbo Kick classes can burn up to 800 calories in one hour-long class.

2. Biking: 700 calories per hour

You can burn up to 700 calories at your average cycling class or take to the road on your own to enjoy fresh air to boot! Just make sure you keep a pace of about 14 to 16 miles per hour to reach the 700-calorie goal.

3. Zumba: 500 or more calories per hour

Who knew an hour of dancing could produce such results?! Because this Latin-inspired dance workout uses the principles of interval training and resistance exercise, the workout will boost your metabolism considerably, according to FitnessZumba.com. However, like any fitness regimen, the number of calories burned varies from person to person depending on weight, sex, current fitness level, and how a hard a person works out. Still the massive weight loss and toning benefits of hip-swishing and shimmying make this dance workout one of the most popular today.

4. Jumping Rope: 780 calories per hour

Only got ten minutes? You can still squeeze in cardio with this highly effective activity, which can have you burning 130 calories every ten minutes (or 780 calories per hour). According to MedicineNet.com, you’d have to run an eight-minute mile to burn as many calories as jumping rope for the same amount of time, making it a good choice for someone who is starting a fitness regime and may not have the endurance to maintain a fast running speed for an extended period of time. If you have limited space and time, jumping rope is the most efficient way to see results. In addition, the high-impact nature of this workout means you’ll add bone mass, increasing your bone health, according to 24 Hour Fitness Club’s Website and BoneHealth.com, while you lose fat.

5. Aerobic Step Classes: 600 calories per hour

Aerobic step classes are high-intensity and high-impact, meaning you’ll burn fat and calories. The number of calories burned depends on how high the step is, but using just a six-inch platform can allow you to burn up to 600 calories in one hour-long class.

6. Running: 650 calories per hour

According to WebMD‘s calorie calculator, a 145-pound person who maintains a 10-minute mile for one hour can burn up to 650 calories. However, running consistently for an hour can be challenging if it isn’t a part of your current exercise regimen. You can work up to this goal and increase your cardiovascular fitness by adding walking intervals throughout your workout. For instance, run for three minutes and then walk briskly for one minute. This practice will increase your endurance, lower your heart-rate recovery time, and burn fat.
