My heart rests knowing I will have you forever…
This is my first letter from our new home… Its quiet here. The weather colder than our old home… The peace here is out of control. I love it here and wish you were here sitting next to me so that i could look at your beautiful frame! So that I could touch you!
I am sitting by the window, I lit a cigarette but haven’t touched it… I just watched it burn to the butt! I closed my eyes and from afar inhaled the fumes that could reach my nose… the sensation was amazing!!
I met a beggar this morning… Not just any random beggar, I have met this particular one on many occasions. I always give him money every time I meet him, not because I am feeling sorry for him but because I am afraid of what he is capable of doing!! His face is ragged and scar ridden. He talks loudly! He spits all over the place….
Today I didn’t have enough money though. I had a 50 bob note and I was going to use it to get home!! So I explained to the man my situation!! He got annoyed and started shouting at me!! Everyone stopped to look at me! I guess they were wondering how mean I was to be able to tick off a beggar!!
The beggar asked me where I live…
“Kileleshwa!!” I said in utter fear!! I don’t know why I didn’t lie!!
“Kileleshwa ni 30 bob!!” he spat!! “tufanye hivi, leta hio 50 nikupe 30!!!” I was lost of words!! This man was cutting a deal!! He had change!!!
I was tired and didnt want to argue, so i closed the deal!!
“strong mzito!!”, he said as he stopped another man walking the opposite direction!!!
He calls me Mzito, meaning Heavy… I like the name, makes me forget I am broke!!!
I have to go now my angel…. A delivery I have to make =)
