Hope Of A New Born Day

Categories Human Nature, Lifestyle

The dawn of every new day comes with a hope that is infectious and communicable to all humanity. It is a genuine hope that is prominently displayed on the faces of the people on crowded streets downtown every morning of every day of every year.

The hope that comes with the dawn of a new day makes humanity, extremely busy and enthusiastic, with the expectation that today’s achievements will be greater than those of yesterday. They start the day with renewed zeal; whether they be matatu crews, cart pushers, cobblers and carpenters, white-collar job workers and barbers, shoe shiners and maize roasters, food kiosk owners and hawkers, car mechanics and Boda Boda riders. Clearly visible is the hurry to chase the dreams and hopes that come with a new morning, before they become stale as the day grows old.

The hope that comes with a new day is clearly exhibited in the excitement of children as they play under the watchful eye of their mothers, who are at the same time lovingly teaching the toddlers new tricks to help them wade through life.

That hope is clearly visible too, on the faces of those who beef up the hope with early morning divine intervention. They leave the Churches, Mosques or Synagogues with satisfaction inscribed all over their faces because the Creator has promised them an achievement-full day during the Worship, Mass or Sala session with Him.

The hope that comes with the birth of a new day is evident in women and men alike, all expectant that the new day is the breakthrough day that they have been waiting for. Everybody is elated, friendly and energized with the hope that the new morning will bring with it better prospects and fruits.

But all of humanity is fully aware that as the day goes by, and as the clock continues ticking, the fruits of the new born day may become sweeter than yesterday’s fruits for some: the evening of the new day may come with the good news of the healing of a loved one, or a successful business deal, or a loved one who got employment or a promotion.

In contrast, all of humanity is aware that as dusk comes calling, the fruits of the the new day may become bitter for others to swallow; the evening of the new day might approach with the bad news of a demotion, a sacking, a failed exam, a failed interview, an illness or even the death of a loved one.

And so the evening approaches, with some exhilarating, because the new day brought with it better prospects than yesterday’s day; while others are less enthusiastic because the now aged day did not bring with it the high expectations and hopes of today’s dawn.

But that does not stop humanity, from being expectant, re-invigorated and re-energized; the reason being that they are hopeful, that tomorrow’s new morning will bring with it renewed hope.

Just like the birds of the air know, the new morning is the start of a new cycle; and humanity will rise up with new hope that at day’s end they will reap sweeter fruits, than today’s fruits.

All humanity is wading through the murky waters of life, everybody doing it their own way without any how-to-do-it manual. Some reap sweet fruits,
some reap bitter fruits, while others reap bitter-sweet fruits. But what is common to all is that every morning of every day of every year, brings with it a genuine hope that the new born day will be better than yesterday’s day.

I am an epic introvert, who quickly becomes an open book when I pen what’s in my significantly fertile mind; fertile as a result of bombardment by realities that are continuously captured by my inquisitive eyes, ears which are constantly rubbing the ground, through constant reading, and through dreaming too.

Writing provides an opportunity to ‘say’ what my unapologetic quiet mouth will not say; which not only soothes me, but also bequeaths to me a relief, a release, and a hope that the written words will change the world, even if only one person at a time.

And so should you seek, that’s where to find me; deeply tucked inside the blankets of reading, seeing, listening, dreaming, and then writing.
