    What I've failed to accept while I'm awake
    I've made it a part of me in my dreams

    To say that I do not love you is to cheat my feelings, for I think I love you more than I care to admit
    I've seen you so many times in my dreams
    And it's in them I've realized how much I love you
    What I did not want to realize while I was awake
    I've realized it while I was sleeping
    And that is I love you.

    What hurts the most is not to be able seeing things as how they real are,
    For then one will be living in a facade

    Embrace who you are, while being nothing less and all the more you.

    Weigh it
    Then let your heart decide
    Which one is of more value
    Your worries or your happiness

    Sometimes you don't need food to feel you
    But only some nice beautiful words

    There is one missing piece that ought to make the whole thing complete
    No matter how small it is the picture won't be complete without it.

    I looked at the child they called spoiled and it immediately strike me that it was not about being spoiled but rather a gap that has not been filled in the kid's life.
    I had a quick check of all the other children around and the fact that they were all grand children of one old woman who lived with her daughter, in this case an aunt of the children, them both being farmers who lived and depended on what the soil and the climate could bring in that seasson and occasionally a hand of help from the older woman's other children, the number of children were seven in total one being of the daughter with which the older woman was living with and the other six being of the same father and amongst them, four were of the same mother and the other two being of different mothers.
    The child in question is a boy of fifteen among the six children mentioned earlier, and also one of the two children with different mothers as I've pointed out early. The boy has been raised by his aunt and his grand mother ever since he was three years old, and one thing true, during his growth more complains were heard of him than of all the other children, now at this age of adolescence more of complaints have been heard from the aunt and the grand mom as the child has completely rejected go to school and refuses to perform various household chores as how it is expected of him, the teen also use abusive language to his aunt and threatens to fight her if she dares to go near him.
    The thing which I've noted and in this case was absent in this kid's life is this:
    As a child I've grown in a family which in the sense of the world is not a complete family but rather a type of family called single parent family with a mother as the head of the family and a very strong mother, if I am to say, I being the youngest out of two children. As a mother, my mom had it all planned and mapped for us in a way we ought to go, and she directed us in a way that redirected us to find our places in the society, while at the same time we had her to look upon as an example of strength, a thing that has been absent in the kid's life since the abandonment by both his parents to his grandmother who is now weary and not able to bring the child into his common sense and an aunt who is quick to retreat from any form of confrontation, and they so much leave the boy to his own ways .
    In all said one thing is true as children we all need somebody to look upon, also someone to impart strength in us, and if this somebody is absent then only God can rebuild the broken.
