Diaries Never Forget — Part 2

We Needed Human Diaries We didn`t need my coded and hidden diary, or my classmates` locked diaries, We needed diaries that had ears to listen; eyes, that we were sure had seen what we saw, mouths that could guide us in love, and hearts that were loving enough not to condemn us. We needed human diaries that we could confide in,…

LIFE’S WATERS

‘How can the waters of life be navigated?’ For I feel I am drowning sometimes Whereas other times I feel I am in control In control over the waves and tides, Over the tempest and turbulence And at such times, I feel like the man The man that languishes in sorrow; I notice that when I am in control Then…

Diaries Never Forget

Diaries can be such amazing treasures when they display their record-keeping ability in the face of our failing memories. They never add, they never take away from events.

If yes, then I’m sure you’d have noticed your footprint on the ground and most times we don’t even pay close attention to it. Over time, footprints have been used to track a person, and as a result of that, people have…
