Letter to my unborn//Culture

This is special to you from your lovely dad

Najua nimekungoja sooo bad

NI furaha Tu

Ila kuna few things nikujuze

Najua ukifika utakua na maswali mengi uniulize

Ila hii ni lesson tu kuhusu culture

Usiitreat kaa ni lecture

Labda siku utakuja utabata kuna vitu haziko

Vile saa zamani tulikua tukijivunia nazo

Change is inevitable

But this is heritage

That helps shape a collective sense of peace,

justice and solidarity that is needed to stem conflicts and build peaceful societies.

Talk of our dress codes, kuvaa kikoi na our beautiful ladies on mahando

Unaeza pata things zimechange adi hutaeza kuzihando

Many social ways utapata zimesahaulika kaa msando

But I’m sure you’ll grab this later na upendo

Uwaonyeshe how our beautiful culture was..

Tukikalishwa around the fire every evening tukifunzwa about mashujaa na other stories

Vile mekatili wa menza is well know heroin, the likes of wanje wa mwadorika and tales of the famous Kaya fungo

This is mijikenda, giriama chonyi and the rest

Bragging about how our culture is the best

But sio huku tu

Utafika central huko upatane na wakikuyu beautiful wakicheza mugithi, the kamba, huezi sahau Luo na maasai

With their beautiful shukas wakiruka up and down

Inapendeza tu
