Happy New Year 2016

By Gideon Mutai

Happy new year 2016
A year of many happy returns
It came subtly as a serpent
And seemingly gentle as a dove
It’s indeed a new year

A year of new thoughts
New dreams and aspirations
New chances
New changes
New resolutions
New challenges
And new life
But the same God of the mountain
Who was, Is and will be
The God who changest not

Let it be a new year
Of improved performance
Of surpassed expectations
Of fulfilled dreams
Of exceptional happiness and joy
Of true love
And a year of holistic development

I wish you, yes, you-
And your family, friends and relatives
A happy new year of choice


Joy in Sharing

by Gideon Mutai

I had a good friend

She loved to laugh a lot

No wonder Joy was her name

I had a precious file

Which my friend didn’t have

And so decided to share with her

She started reading the file

As I also read the same file

And joy filled my heart

I had not been understanding

As much as I do now

Probably because I had the file alone

I am now unusually happy

Only after sharing the file

I call it the joy of sharing

How good is it to share!

You create more space to receive

And always wallow in the joy of sharing

(The above poem was inspired by my classmate called Joy whom I shared with her some Pathology Revision notes as we were nearing our End of 3rd Year Exams)
