Love yourself

By Lavender Amunga

Love is beautiful, love is gorgeous, love is sexy… Heck, love is hot – hot like Huddah. Right now the only people that can properly describe what Love is are Otile Brown and Ringtone. What’s the cost of a brand new Range Rover with a customized number plate, again?  Love. A Chuka University student will hang himself and when God will later ask him why he cut his life short, he’ll look down, shake his head, then up again and amid tears, “Love” he’ll respond. Ok, I’m hijacking someone’s story. Lavender, please start of over.


He bolted (talk of Usain Bolt sprinting in the IAAF finals in Beijing) my knight in shining amour of many years also bolted, and never thought to look back. To think that I had a bun in the oven was a predicament he could not decipher. So what he saw best to do, despite the preaching on the love he gave that finally made me agree to be his; despite the manifesto he presented to me in the days he claimed he had seen the sole fish in Lake Victoria, he ran. Left me to handle my own pickle as if the sinful deed had been committed by me alone.

Well, love is just a fancy word for pain. When an Adonis walks to you and presents his well detailed manifesto -what he will do when you down your tools and let him in – piece of advice, run! Take off and never look back lest you turn into a pillar of salt! Love is an unwanted affair; and sad thing is that this thing called love is quite overrated. Men, when you see that lass who appears to blow your mind away with just a glance, my friend call upon your God, He will answer. Ask him for guidance as you take off like the whirlwind; because love is pain.


A moment of silence for those of us persons that have been lied to; played like mere cards; treated worse than the garbage we trample on every day. As we all take a journey into this amazing world of creativity, let us all remember that it is only us that can make ourselves better people.
