A tiny red velvet box

I watched from the sidelines,
The smile in your pretty face,
the serenity in your warm eyes
tear drops hanging on your eyelids

I waited for the magic moment,
to break an endless wait and vent,
to start a endless touch of care
and a home of hearty and prenty

Then came the moment of truth
a moment to open a new destiny
to crown this love with new horizon
A tiny red velvet box when opened
Made my life a dream I could re-live.

I envy the courage of nature Opens up to universe enough cure Beauty billed yet its the ultimate pride Nah explicit like the peacock Yet more grand than its own might This the greatness in the hopes of WANJIKU Pity runs when the malauding beings wake Wait for leap year, fill our streets Mighty , envious and empty promises sheets Confuse hungry ones by witched handouts An amaze how easy we fall for The pithy testmonies and yet blank defor The bullshit glitter than the queens Gold Their shots become priceless like the pearls From our rat houses we run to cast The aftermath runs uglier than satan We sleep on misfortunes but talk of hope I don't remember the election but before Yet the cruel post-election I silence And leave the Amaze ......Still a puzzle


How bright the noon rays before sunset Know of the speed in a stream at the source No compare to vast river at the mouth Yet that the puzzle am in of passion The colder it gets , my system despairs The sight blurs and memories fading Your cold ways burn my last twig I miss the vibrance of your pretty visage Yet you widen the gaps to kill my system Unknown how long the twigs can hold So uncertain the count of this silence When the flame of hope will pass the tense Runs strange , but I'll turn this page Break this system, to run its upgrade Hope you mean what you let me see I once loved my system of romance and you Seems I'll survive but in another page Treasure what we share , it comes in handy WHEN THE SYSTEM FALLS DEAD

Today they set up mirrors
That reflect their aging Arrogance
 Adopting a stern detrimental line
They alone know what to think

 In the darkness of our universe
 Negatives assume the power of their Original
 Images, Naive termites were unleashed
To feed on the meager corner---
 ---Poles of the globe.

 Didn't they become subversive?
 Metaphors confusing the KIRINYAGA tyres
 That crushed them! Even to pee
 Which youth does not need clearance???

 Who dares to bulge
 The precious days
And give evidence
For hope bereft
Only MAMA endures
  She the GREATEST

 Dear Executives , send me home
I'll give salvage to MAMA again
 She knows my crawl since first step
 My destiny is at the anthills
 An a son from Mt.Kenya villages
 Shame on their complains
 Darkness is the life they give us NEW elites
Claiming capital utility __ now (I) we know
 From your teaching I'll base my Dreams
MAMA you the first and last of teachers
Am coming home, Develop my homeland


As the water flow, there's your kiss,
Did you ever notice the realm of love,
The birds on trees stared with excite,
Who didn't agree the site had power,
By the riverside the memories lingers

The endless flow, passed with nice words,
My mouth never easily stops, to sooth you,
If I told you yester' today, I still do,
Still 'morrow my passions will fill my songs,
Words won't be all, I'll show you my way

By the riverside , I confessed my fears,
To lose you will ruin me, that much I fear,
For me to let go my memory must have a miss,
That nice spot knows my lie confirmed romance,
Those banks only can narrate our sweet deeds,
If I long for more, those riverbanks surely know



Can't wait for our time to sleep,
Though I know for me I won't,
in your sleep I learnt today's tip,
on what you love and won't tell

You've been talking in your sleep,
saying things that you don't tell me,
Saying things I never even knew before,
And every moan as you call my name,

I enjoy the fine lazy smile in your sleep,
I enjoy the questions you ask and step,
I enjoy secrets you unravel in all innocence,
And the serene visage you harbour,

I can't try to wake and lose the moment,
I can't tell you else I will keep you in worry,
I can't boast my knowledge and have to explain,

You've been talking in your sleep,
Telling me things you've never said awake,
I know all this lingers in your mind,
And I will love you and wait to hear you say,
Because my love for you crowns my world.

Give! It will come back to you

When upon life billows, you get tempted and tossed all over by fear of crushing the fragile gems that our decisions become.

The eventuality of our days are consequencies of things we learnt to avoid and be wary of when we had guidance close to us, yet when we walk away from those guidance we suffer destruction and pain, regrets and hurt, tears and depression.

All these things happen in our life but we also have those moments we stand by what we believe in and smile at the end of it all, how sweet it feels inside to be right, to be given praise because you followed what is right, what we were taught. Thats the feeling all of us crave for yet we are unable to make decisions that will bring us those good feelings.
"Choices have consequencies"

I have just read somewhere that, fear looks around, sorrow looks on the past, fear hides while hope looks above. Hope looks up , to the only being that can conquer all others, and thats is what we have lost in our hearts.

I wanted to write about giving, having the power to give to someone, for a course and goodwill. We always here that GIVE AND IT SHALL COME TO YOU. How many of us believe it's true?and if we do, do we put it into practise? I know I don't at least not enough and that is something I pray will to change in me.

I have come to this self evaluation after lots of self observation and emotional, social and physical reactions resulting from my dau to day's deeds, feelings and interactions.

Join me please in answering this questions,
~How come when ever you forgive someone you feel better in heart more than you felt before?
~How come whenever you do good to someone you feel that goodness inside, while you were trying to make those people feel good?
~How come whenever you hit someone or something with your hand or leg it's equally painfull to your body?? That is reaction!!
~ How come if you hate someone for so long you can't seem to forget them? You can't seem to have peace, it's never easy, its never fulfilling, it's disturbing and unconfortable??
~ How come when you love someone without wanting to be loved back we always feel peace and fulfillment in heart?

All those and a million more are just examples of things we know but are reluctant to acknowledge and toe to them.
This is the reality or action and reaction, give and you will get back, love and you will be loved, make a soul happy and you will feel happy in equal measure.

Give without expecting back and God has a way of giving you back four times more.
Forgive without holding back and equal or more measure of peace will reign in your heart and soul.
Love unconditionally and love will be given to you without measure or conditions.

I say these things to cement the very believes I harbour in my heart yet my human nature forgets so fast and reality is so unforgiving we all know that.

I thus resolve to forgive because I want eternal forgiveness, I resolve to give all I can because I want to receive all the love I can get from both God and man.
I resolve to love unconditionally because I want a love of believe and trust, unconditional and unmeasured, building and full of joy.

I resolve to follow the teachings of our fathers the very that led them to lead us!!

Guide me lord as I struggle to keep my resolutions and guide everyone I live with, friends, family and neighbours to ease my every day.

Thank you lord for each and every word I write, its your power that makes it possible.

I approve of this message

My Reason and Will To Linger

Since you are too busy
You end up being nosy
Living and trying to be cosy
And eyes already drowsy

Almost killed this will
But I managed to be still
I'll try to stand till
The day I clear the bill
Otherwise I will kill

Never wish to be one
But I guess I can burr
And make a pupil learn
I believe you also can
Make a soul smile under the sun
Coz each one has a turn
To decide to do or run
With will its all finally done

Such a beauty like you are
There is so little you endure
Coz your heart I judge pure
And mine is here for a cure

I like a tongue twister
Times it's a good test here
For who really is mister
To spare thoughts on this sister

My will again will linger
Like jesus did on Easter

FAO tells africa to eat insects for food security

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) (a branch of the United Nations) have declared they have a new way to end food insecurity..... by eating insects!

The FAO report says this has many health benefits to eating insects. Insects are high in protein, fat and mineral contents. They can be eaten whole or ground into a powder or paste, and incorporated into other foods.

Farming insects has a huge global potential for both animal feed and food production, according the the report.

Have your say!

So who is going to be the first here to start their grasshopper farm?!­story.asp?NewsID­=44886&Cr=food+­security&Cr1#.UZIufqJTaSo

Tell Me A Lie (Inside Our Heads)

Those awkward thoughts in our heads when we go out and meet new people, new potentials and we wonder what is the best way to escape our loneliness.
Our minds get on to a run of thoughts and this is my evaluation of different cases of two people who have a mindset of living in the moment. Afraid to sleep alone tonight they are thinking:-=-

"I will tell you a lie, I'l tell you you look familiar, though you know I don't even know your name...

Il tell you a lie, I'l say I just got here, even though I know you've seen me hanging around here before...

I'l tell you a lie, I'l tell you am not a married man, even though I fear you saw me slip the wedding ring away...

I'l tell you a lie, I'l tell you I don't have a place to stay, but I'lb glad to drive you home because it's on my way home..

I'll tell you a lie when I take you home, I don't really wanna spend the night alone...

I won't worry about your sorrow, you'll be long gone tomorrow and I wont be there to you cry..."

"Tell me a lie , tell me that you need me and I will pretend that it's for real the way you want me too...

Please tell me a lie, when you lie close beside me and whisper when you hold me-I love you...

Tell me a lie when our night is almost over, and make it easy on us both when its time for you to go...

Tell me a lie, when its time for you to go and tell me you will be back here again

Tell me a lie and take me home, I don't want to sleep will be long gone tomorrow, you wont be there to see me cry

Just tell me a lie"

Cover Letter Writing Extract

Language | Format | Content

» Example 1 «
» Example 2 «

A cover letter should accompany each résumé you send to a prospective employer. Your cover letter is your introduction; it describes who you are, why you are interested in the position, and the value you can add to the organization. Do not duplicate your résumé in your cover letter. Instead, use your cover letter to add a personal touch and highlight the most relevant experience on your résumé, which tends to be more data-driven. The following are some cover letter recommendations:

Language Check over the spelling and grammar several times, gaining feedback from Career Center counselors, friends and family members. Misspellings and typos on a cover letter can eliminate the possibility of interviewing with a company.

Format The cover letter should be brief, no longer than one page in length if sent via hard copy mail.

Emailed applications should contain a cover letter in the body of the email with a résumé attached.

Typically, three or four short, easy-to-read paragraphs are adequate.

Keep your cover letter looking professionally; use a standard font (i.e. Times New Roman, Ariel, etc.), and avoid using bolded or underlined text. In special cases, such as when applying for design positions, students are encouraged to consider a more unique résumé aesthetic as a way to show their work.

Content If you have recruiter contact information, address your cover letter to him or her. If you do not have recruiter contact information, apply to a blind advertisement with, "Dear Recruiter:"

Find out as much about the position and company as possible and tailor each cover letter toward the opportunity for which you are applying. This might involve some research. Illustrate that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill the position requirements. It will show them that you have done your homework and assure them that you are a good match for the position. It will also avoid the appearance that you have sent them a generic cover letter, which could have been sent to any company for almost any position. If you are responding to an advertisement, make sure that you address all of the position qualifications.

If you have developed a good networking relationship with an individual in the organization, upon their approval, use their name in your cover letter.

Communicate that you can add value to the organization. Associate the company product with your capabilities. Avoid making the common egocentric mistake of describing why the position would be good for you. Organizations are interested in how your skills, abilities, and ideas will benefit their enterprise.

Let the cover letter reflect your individuality, but avoid appearing too familiar, humorous or ironic. Describe what is particularly appealing to you about this company and/or position. If you admire some of their recent work, a current project or their philosophy of operation, let them know.

Close the cover letter by taking the initiative and requesting an interview. List your contact information for follow-up purposes.

Dear Mr. Gumby,

Your advertisement in Job Choices '05 prompted me to contact you about entry-level positions in electrical engineering at Fawlty Systems, LTD. The product engineering program at your company is very appealing. I am particularly interested in your project on digital systems. In May of this year I will receive a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from The Cooper Union and I hope that we will have an opportunity to discuss employment possibilities before that time.

In addition to the knowledge I've obtained from my education, my experience as an assistant to a plant engineer has provided me with an excellent background in the practical aspects of electrical engineering.

During my years at The Cooper Union, I have taken on many additional responsibilities. As a freshman, I managed the Student Council and played varsity tennis. In my junior year I was employed by the Student Services Office where I received first-hand experience in organization, teamwork and responsibility. I hope that you will seriously consider my enclosed résumé, which provides full details of my qualification.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to speaking with you. I may be reached between the hours of 9am and 5pm at 212 355.4343.

Dear Mr. Davidson:

I learned about the Electrical Engineering position with Anchor Systems, Ltd on the Cooper Career Connection Web site, and I am interested in further discussing this exciting opportunity. As a graduating electrical engineer undergraduate student at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, my academic background, coupled with my relevant work experience, has given me the tools and ability necessary to add value to the position, and ultimately your organization.

My interest in electrical engineering is long standing and my well-rounded background makes me an excellent candidate for the Electrical Engineering position. I secured an IT Analyst Internship with Credit Suisse First Boston in the summer of my freshman year, and gained exposure to the financial industry, while enhancing their software by developing search subroutine and upload script modules. As a sophomore, I served as Treasurer on the Student Council and played varsity tennis. In my junior year, I attained a position in the Student Services Office where I received first-hand experience in organization, teamwork, and responsibility. I have earned several awards while a student at Cooper Union, including the Bausch and Lomb Award for Excellence in Science, in June 2005 and Dean's List in the Fall of 2004.

Please find my attached résumé, which provides full details of my qualification. Feel free to contact me at (212) 353-4567 or for any following up purposes. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to further discussing the Electrical Engineering opportunity with you.
