we live once by Kungu J. Opondo 2023

It is high time we human beings we embrace humanity, John S. Mbiti (1995) once said, “I am because WE are and, since we are, therefore I am.” Based on the above locution by John S. Mbiti,sometimes it is true to say that when you destroy someone’s life with lies; take it as a loan it will riposte. In 21st C with advancement in technology, education… we should be kind and magnanimous. Furthermore life is like a hot bathe, it feels good while you’re in it, but the longer you stay the more wrinkled you get. Life is so ironic to understand fully, it takes sadness to know happiness, noise to distinguish silent and a broken heart to find true love. I strongly believe and agree that our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela once talked about pride, bitterness, greed and despair… “When you are at the top, be careful of the monster called pride since pride will make you look down on the people who haven’t attained your level of success. When you are at the bottom, be careful of bitterness, it will make you jealous and think that other people are the reason you have not made it.”
