Kamikaze

I ought to know better than to play with fire…
Because inevitably, I’ll get burnt. I thought the mire was a teacher,
Probably I’m not that much of a good student.I thought history helps shape our future.Redirect it towards the better path.Reality stares at me and it’s harsh…
Real as the cold biting deep into my skin.Someone once said, “Don’t compromise yourself. You’re all you’ve got.”

Maybe it’s time I wake up and smell the coffee. Maybe it is time that I took it all in…
This time though not with a pinch of salt.

— Wa Ng’ang’a
