They lied to us

They said education is the key

What they never said is that corruption is the lock,

Corruption na education ni vitu incompatible

ni kama kujaribu kufungua kifuli ya solex na kifungu ya tri cycle

no wonder the common man is ever in his vicious cycle,

rat race hiyo ni mbio bila finish line how can you ever win such a race?

Kenya imekuwa ni kama shamba la wanyama where all animals are equal but some are more equal than others when it comes to sharing of national cake do we ever get our fair share? Of course no. we only get much more than our fair share when it comes to police brutality. They fire us with teargas to instill fear in us, if that fails they gang up against us with live bullets crippling, maiming and killing innocent lives but does this ever get any attention?

They lied to us when they told us that Kenya is a democratic state

when self imposed rulers rule over liberal minded citizens

and I wonder if this is what our forefathers fought for in the name of democracy or just tyranny in disguise..

Corruption na public offices zimekuwa vitu complementary

ni kama coffin na cemetery

ni kama kiwi na viatu

imezidi kufilisi mifuko ya watu

yet tuko na anti corruption yenye imekuwa useless ni kama toothless carnivora.

 

The society we value so much has lied to us in many ways

See our churches are awash with rogue pastors who preach charity yet they own private jets, they preach chastity yet they keep 100 concubines.

They preach prosperity: give and you will be given but is that always the case? They even sell prophecies all you got to do is panda mbegu kwa nambari on the screen and all your needs are met but is that always the truth? As you wait for your prophecies to come true they are smiling to the bank investing in your ignorance changing vehicles every year as you continue to languish in poverty.

They endorse fidelity in marriages yet they eat the flock, didn’t you hear of a pastor found dead in a woman’s bedroom? I don’t know much but I know for sure they were not reading scriptures in there.

It was said how important marriage is yet our streets are awash with sophisticated ladies who don’t care about marriage inheriting independence from our colonizer’s minds.

I am just so sick of this society where our young daughters are losing their virginity long before they know its spelling.

Our parents lied to us, our teachers and our leaders have done the same but I want to tell you one truth: You cannot feature in a future you haven’t pictured. For you to feature into the future you need to picture the future because the history of the future lies in the mystery of the scriptures, so read the scripture for there lies your future.
