At the entrance, a small tank rests on a wooden stool. The tank has a diminutive tap that drips a thin strip of water even when turned on fully to minimize water wastage. Under the tap, a black bucket is used as a sink, only that it also collects all the dirty water. There is a bottle of liquid soap that is placed carefully on top of the tank’s cover. The bottle’s lid has a small slit through which the slimy liquid escapes when the bottle is squeezed. This is to say that the bottle has and keeps enduring the grips and squeezes from men’s and women’s hands. It is always ready. Between it and rest is a five-second reprieve, eagerly waiting for the night so that it can hang its coat and retire to its bed- the tank top. It will not pull its blankets because for people like it they were made to sleep blanketless. It doesn’t have a family; it thrives alone to serve men and women.

There are days you wake up empty. The creative juices run dry at times, many times in deed. As Murphy’s law opines, anything that can go wrong will go wrong.. In my recent life, many things are wrong. And when I weigh my life on a scale, the bad seem to be winning. At this moment, therefore, I am on a pendulum swinging to the forces of nature. It is hard to explain my sanity at this moment of my life.

It must be tough being a man enough at this age and era. I imagine how one must struggle to become a man that the society can term as a man enough, because in this arena of gladiators there are tags to each and every man that a mother brings along. And this man, unlike others, has something to prove to the world, or else he may find himself entangled in marque of lesser men. In this loop, men who are deemed not to be men enough languish and die in shame, embattled self esteem, desperation, and seclusion. The world has forgotten them, showed them backs and left them in the wilderness full of unending solitude and name-calling.

One day on December 2014, Darcy lost her left hand at their residence in Kileleshwa. She was just 21, on the eve of Christmas when she and her friends decided that a party had to go down to welcome Jesus to the world. Before, holding parties was a norm, but this one was what she calls ‘mpango major’, meaning it was the biggest she would ever host. Little did she know that it would change her life.

The spiraling number of heartbreaks is an example of the result of pleasure over purpose. You see we sojourn this earth like we have no purpose. We just want to live for the day, as if we already know tomorrow won’t knock.

The line went dead. I stood there feeling stupid and powerless. Days went by, the little woman not wanting to talk to me. Our relationship became rusty sort of. And when you’re worlds apart it is very difficult to mend the holes.

The first day looks like we landed on the moon from different countries. And from our space gear, we salute each other and try to get to know each other. We forget our mission momentarily and have a seat on the rocky surfaces of the moon, unsure of what our excursion will look like. We trade banters and exchange long pleasantries. Out here, no one knows what happens the next moment so we have to stick together.

There is a slow music from Jidena, filtering calmly from the background as he sings of Bambi, the love of his life. It is a beautiful song, and for anyone who appreciates music and its magnificence will stay still and drench themselves in the music because it is a song you have to feel. After that then you’ll have to think of your own Bambi, and if you ever fought for them and told them no one will take them from you.

WELCOME 2018
This is all I can tell you, it is not that I was there earlier than any of you. It happened to all of us at the same time, different timelines for some. Most of us were looking forward to it, with goals, others with no plan. Whatever the case we’re here- those of us lucky enough to see it.
