PEN AND PAPER POINT!

Whats happening beautiful people!!! I woke up in the morning today and my eyeballs almost jerked from their sockets when I looked at the time….Daang!!ain’t nobody been late like that in their entire lives! One of these days I am going to have to fire my alarm clock because it is sleeping on its job (Who am I blaming anyway, I found my phone under the bed, off -but shh! the alarm clock must not know about this. Hehe). Soo…kama kawa i do my stuff hastily to try and beat a 30 mins time span.Meanwhile I was charging my phone and when I finally switched it on I ran to the shower and i heard tones of numerous texts and I was torn in between being enthusiastic and anxious. Enthusiastic because I imagined amazing people who might have missed me so baad (breathtaking men ofcourse) anxious because my boss might have had the last straw anddd…we dont wanna think about it! Just as the uncertain me rushes to check the texts…BUMMER! they are 10 texts of the shadiest guy in the planet! How I wish the 0 was silent. The first pick-up line threw me off! in swahili ” Achieng, nilibambika na wewe, na wewe??” translation “Achieng, this are your things , those are my things, these are our things….you know the rest” I felt soo violated i called-in sick. Men! if you need to woo a lady, your game has got to be at the stars! Ladies! I know you feel me and am not sure how you push the initial button yourselves. All am saying is BE SURE before you hit on someone more so me. Make me melt, evaporate and sublime at the same damn time! This brings us to today’s Pen and Paper Point, where we feature Donell Jones..Ps: Before I went to the Jones part I had a million fantasies and he did not even try hard, all he did was sing for me ‘This love’. Matter of fact he doesn’t even know I exist but the reason why this song makes me disappear in thin air is because of how Donell drops these rhymes to a chick he barely even knows in a club and he is honest in a very enticing way leaving a lady with no option. Written by Sheldon Goode and the hottie himself, the lyrics capture a man’s desire and the creativity that achieves desire. Sheldon Goode is a multifaceted artist from Newark who can probably work all the instruments by the way!. He is incredibly amazing in producing and songwriting and can sing too.¬† (At this point just ask yourself what you can do..lol). He is probably the man behind most of the good jams you listen to. Anyway, ladies, let us finally be serenaded in our fantasies with Donell Jones as we go through these lyrics..much love!

THIS LUV By Donell Jones

Boo, do you mind if I take this seat right here
Coz you’re sitting alone
If you’re sippin’ on Cris girl, I’m buying, yeah
And if you got a nigga don’t lie, ain’t got to front for me
I will give these digits that you can call
You can hit me on my cell if I’m not home

Are you down to swing with me
Or could you be blinded by all this ice you see
I’m willing to give you all this love I got
No relationships involved
Gotta keep it strictly physical
All this love

All this love waiting just for you
So don’t pass it up coz you’ll regret it, boo
I’ll be patiently waiting to hear from you

Girl, you gotta be the one girl
You gotta be the one, yeah, yeah,

See I don’t mind making house calls
If you wanna go blow for blow
Girl, whatever you’re down for I’m trying
It won’t hurt him if he don’t know
That’s how it’s got to be
I understand you got a nigga that lives at home
But I want to be that cat that makes you moan

Are you down to swing enough with me
Or could you be blinded by all this ice you see
I’m willing to give you all this love I got

No relationships involved
Gotta keep it strictly physical
All this love

All this love waiting just for you
So don’t pass it up coz you’ll regret it boo
I’ll be patiently waiting to hear from you
And now you gonna be the one
Girl you gotta be the one
All this love (*2)

(Spoken-my fave part)
Yeah, I’m patiently waiting
Coz there’s so many things we can do
So many things we can share
With no strings atttached, you like that?
You’re gonna be the one yeah, yeah, yeah

All this love waiting just for you
So don’t pass it up coz you’ll regret it boo
I’ll be patiently waiting to hear from you
And now you gonna be the one
Girl you gotta be the one
All this love (*2)

ONLY IN KENYA!

ONLY IN KENYA!

The tropical aura
The unawareness of the beautiful fauna and flora
Manzi si tabia, ni sura
The hassle and bassle of Ochieng and Nyambura
The beckoning of the last minute rush
Solar ya Nai ya mapozi na tena ya tafash
Bado dame kung’ang’ana na boots za enkarasha
Cocktail booze in the rooftop bash
Only in Kenya!

43 ways to say hi and bye
The beggar who pulled out his eye
Always set out in queues to lie
Tears of taxes to cry
Creativity nayo?
Everyone a sister and brother to President O
Marveled and intrigued by a soul named Sonko
Politics zinacome zinago
Only in Kenya!

Chopsticks in a mini
Unaconiwa huamini
Loud music kwa mathree and across the scene
Annoyance gradually funny
Only in Kenya!

The relaxed nerve of Coasterians
The hastiness of Nairobians
The club naivety of ex-highschoolerians
The night lights that sustain the beauty of being Kenyan
Only in Kenya!

I Pledge allegiance to the flag
Packs of pride in my bag
Everyone deserves a hug
to crush the tribalism bug
A Kemboid race
A Lupitad art
An Adongod game
My contribution to the name
Only in Kenya!

PEN AND PAPER POINT!

As I sip this sweet wine and run my finger round its tip am in deep thought. The gentle breeze is courteous enough to sort of blow my troubles away and not my hair. I can only imagine what would happen if I am on my fifth round of this stuff. Last time a similar scenario happened I saw four types of skies when i rose up from the chair and I don’t remember how I got to bed…did I even dream? Or at least I wished I was the next morning when the terrible hang down consumed my peace. Damn it! I always learn this lesson every¬† time and maybe the main lesson I am yet to learn is to finally learn it! Don’t we always swear never to drink again at this point? Then we do and again we swear until it becomes a tune to the mind. Anyway, having said that, today’s pen and paper point edition focuses on the lessons we learn in life, those that we fight and those that we make people learn from our testimonies. We all encounter that brutal ‘I wish I knew’ moment that drags us to a limited zone of life. However, lessons are more so like steps; you learn that they are steep, they take you higher and you step on each to move on to the next. Period! That’s just how it is point blank. There is no need to wallow in your failures or disappointments. That man who made you cry over and over again. That lady who made you waste a whole lot of your precious time. They were only worth it before you learn the lesson, after you do, they become NON-FACTORS! Soo…accept things went south, they caught you off-guard and now you are on another level. Alicia Keys’ Lesson Learned is a forte that sends the message home. It brings the occurrences into perspective and the tone of acceptance in the song is coupled with a strong-willed character that is determined to move on to the next challenge. Written by one of the best songstresses in the world of RNB and Neo-soul, Alicia Keys alongside John Mayer and Raphael Saadiq, Lesson Learned is definitely mind blowing. Ps: It is always my consolation song. I know Mrs Swizz Beats has been tagged a husband snatcher on all social grounds, but here is the real deal, When Alicia Keys hits the piano and graces the atmosphere with her beautiful vocals, she SNATCHES my heart away! If you are a hater and you cant swallow, shut up **** gaggle! Get inspired with the Lyrics below

LESSON LEARNED By Alicia Keys feat. John Mayer
He broke my heart
And now it’s raining
Just to rub it in
I’m at your door
I feel so crazy about it
You’ll say I told you so
You saw it long ago
You knew he had to go
I finally came ’round
I’m back on solid ground
Can’t let it get me down

It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright

Yes I was burned but I called it a lesson learned
Mistake overturned
So I call it a lesson learned
My soul has returned
So I call it a lesson learned
Another lesson learned

Sometimes
Some lies
Can take a minute
To fully realize
His tears
Your eyes
Thirty seconds to apologize
You give it one more chance
Just like the time before
But he already knows you’d give a hundred more
Until that night in bed
You wake up in a sweat
You’re racing to the door
Can’t take it anymore

I was burned but I called it a lesson learned
Mistake overturned
So I call it a lesson learned
My soul has returned
So I call it a lesson learned
Another lesson learned

Life’s perfect
Ain’t perfect
If you don’t know what the struggle’s for
Falling down ain’t falling down
If you don’t cry when you hit the floor
It’s called the past cause I’m getting past
And I ain’t nothing like I was before
You ought to see me now

Yes I was burned but I called it a lesson learned
Mistake overturned
So I call it a lesson learned
My soul has returned
So I call it a lesson learned
Another lesson learned

Yes I was burned but I called it a lesson learned
Mistake overturned
So I call it a lesson learned
My soul has returned
So I call it a lesson learned
Another lesson learned
