Celebrating the Love of Friends in a Loving World

Celebrating the Love of Friends in a Loving World
Red Roses for You, My Sweet Friends ... Total Love.

My Sweet Friends

My sweet friends,

We grow closer to each other;

When we interact together and share ideas;

The common faith that we share,

Binds our hearts in one accord.

For sweet friendships last a life time,

When built on mutual respect, humility and understanding;

Throughout each different season,

We find we are one in life.

Sweet friends are there through times of grief;

And times when hope is gone;

Always there with encouragement;

So we can carry on.

I thank the Lord for you,

My true and faithful friends;

To fondly speak with you, whether we agree or not,

On this, our beloved blog;

For sweet friends will stay, no matter what;

Giving support.

Together, our hearts and minds truly unite;

With the amazing love of sweet friends.

In the spirit of true friendship,

Best wishes, my sweet friends;

May the Lord bless you abundantly.

I remain, yours truly,

B.B. Bakampa.

“Come for jobs,” reads the advert on the street.
Back home, they rush to prepare themselves
For the newly found opportunity
They wash clothes spotless clean, bathe, brush their shoes and iron
All is done religiously and hastily
Highly optimistic of the future.

Off they go early morning
Only to find many others, one job is sought
Now they are pessimistic
They are afraid of one another.
But this talkative guy seems to know everyone- including the manager
Before long, ‘friendships’ emerge in groups
They interact together.

“Get ready for the interviews,” shouts an official
And the friendships cease, dead silence reigns
One by one they are interviewed
And leave without a word
Anxiety overrides them.

Tomorrow they visit the notice board
Some are taken on and they are all smiles
Many miss out and their countenances say it all,
It is the beginning of yet another ordeal-
Of job seeking
The struggle continues
It’s not yet uhuru.
