MY TAKES ON IRELAND GAY MARRIAGE VOTE

Posted on

happy womenBy: Lin Collins

Same Sex- Marriage or Gay has taken grounds rapidly especially in Europe. Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender Rights {LGBT} would be nothing common to a 10-year-old girl in some of these European Countries.

The recent popular vote by the people of Ireland has triggered something in my thought. In fact it is the first country to accept by popular vote. When it all began with Cicero, it quickly moved to Richard John Jack Baker and James Michael McConnell in the 1970’s,with the history of same-sex unions during ancient times, which consisted of unions ranging from informal and temporary relationships to highly ritualized unions, it continues to be now a modern state-recognized thing; same sex-marriage.

It is rather in despicable how we treat these kinds of issues. We often take it on a lighter note. Oh yes of course I know we are in a ‘modern age’. For the one word ‘modernization’, we tend to think that of course we have to adapt to just things we find pleasure in. Especially to those in Europe, same-sex marriage is not a new thing anymore. Think about it, if you would have to change at every bit in the name of ‘modernization’ what would you be turning into. Just ask yourself. It is not about modernization, it is about how you perceive the world from the beginning of creation. If God, which I know some of you do not still believe that he does exist {would talk about that someday later} was to bring another Adam into the scene instead of Eve, how would it be like?

“If it is about child-bearing that is no problem”. Why, the advent of technology. Of course technology has aided us in so diverse ways. Mind you, to every good thing, there is a bad absolutely. If technologies has rallied us round to recognize that we can in plant sperms and hopefully change the genital organs, does it imply that you should crowd on it? You marry man to man, woman to woman. And then the adoption idea comes. Fine, you adopt a girl child if you a gay, so he grows up to call who Daddy, and who Mommy, same genders? You can imagine the generation of beings you are already introducing into our world.

In addition to this, you have to understand that there is a limitation to everything under this Sun. You have to understand that to every rule there is an exception. Always I have the right, I have the freedom, too? To do whatever that I want. You could imagine the right that was exhibited by the people of Sodom and Gomorrah and the aftermath {Genesis 19:5-10}. I hope you know the story. If that right was just legal in the sight of the Angles, would they have smote the people with blindness on their pressing?

It is not about being in Europe but measures to undertake to ensure that it does not cross over to Africa or to the other countries. You sit in Ouagadougou, and tell yourself “Of course they should enjoy themselves, it is not in my country.” I give you ‘Ayekooo’. There is an adage in the Ewe language which I translate literally that, “if you see your neighbours bear burning, quickly put a pot of water beside your own.” It means that you should not take anything for granted. “I was deeply saddened by the result,” Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s secretary of state, said at a conference in Rome on Tuesday night. “The church must take account of this reality, but in the sense that it must strengthen its commitment to evangelisation. I think that you cannot just talk of a defeat for Christian principles, but of a defeat for humanity.” Of course a defeat for humanity! He is the Vatican’s top diplomat; he is seen as second only to the pope in the church’s hierarchy, which remarks represents the most damning assessment of the Irish vote by a senior church official to date. So you see it is not only about our country but our religion as well.

Finally, a colleague would whisper into my ears, “We are always talking about it but not much improvement?” assuming you convince your neighbour the detrimental act he or she may think of engaging in it to stop, would she not have given it a second thought? I tell you, it is all about prayers. Of course prayers can move mountains. Mind you, behind every act there is a force.

Do you always have to think about technology, freedom and right, no relation to your country, modernization, experimenting with everything you think is cool? For your information, just yesterday Greenland’s parliament unanimously approves same-sex marriage with effect from October 1, 2015.

Maybe you would be familiar with this, “curiosity, kills the cat”

What about this ““if you see your neighbour bears burning, quickly put a pot of water beside your own.” Ayekoooooo!

AS TIME FLIES

Where day and night reins

Even that since the days of old

Humanity can expect nothing than changes in life

The Magnificent Moon slowly walks

Believing by daybreak

Would have crossed the sky

If only humanity needs

Get this correct

That there is no end to striving for what it wants

For one economist would tell you “human wants are unlimited”

And that is why man needs not to stop

Fighting for the passion

Like a fish, would not resist the drop of water

It is not hard getting frustrated; neither is it easy, keeping up with focus

As time flies

It is just as good as changing momentum

When you finally see the snail walk slowly

Ask in a golden voice

“Would you ever walk like this?”

If it has the opportunity to answer

“There is no haste in life”

It would not imply that you have to slumber in bed

As you keep focus in life, take it slowly

Why?

The more you climb, the slower you have to

In that,

As time fliesour life

OH MY LOVE.

When waves and tides tear my heart

Promising me no end to my worries

Which ages has dealt blow to my heart with

In tons of cartoons

You were there rightly

To dry my falling tears

My dying heart

Which has longed for you since?

The day you were born

The first star and moon to appear in the night

The dazzling sun in the day

You are my left hand

For which duel with the right

Day and night

Your touches so smooth

Curdles me to sleep

Your kiss, ever warming,

What a golden lips you have

Designed by the best architect

Who even as a clot of blood, knew drawing

If I tell you, the best is in you

Please do not deny it

Your tender breast

Your curved hips

The Butts

Nicely curved thighs

Gifts from nature

Riches and wealth have been good

But your shadow which appears

Before your astonishing beauty

Clear all airs; best

If ages could have noticed it

Might have prevent me from seeing you

Oh my love

It is not about regretting for the rest of your life, but putting measures not to allow the same to happen.

THE DREAMS WE DREAM

Posted on

In our secret places

Indoors and Outdoors

In the midst of our tiredness

Depression and bad times

Blissful and unforgettable moments

Which we assume happens ones in a lifetime

So as to celebrate it so much

Like a bouncing baby boy

So much longed for

All is but can be a flash

Like a lightning thunder

This may either shock or relax us

When our plans are made

Which is now left to fate to justify?

Implying we cannot do much after all

But still believe we are among the Parliamentarians

Who says can be upheld or withhold

Even in difficult times,

This needs no forgetting

But man would

With respect to the figure talked about

Which since has no place in humanity

Or adored like a Prince

Who says power, wishes command?

Riding on white horses

In any case

The dreams we dream

Have a major stake

In our darling world

WALKING BACK AND FORTH

Posted on Updated on

dvsl

Those loyal have been
Since the cutting of the sods
Which was done back some years ago
When I was yet to open my eyes
To see the realities of life
Which has dawn many to succumb to fate?
Which know neither the weak nor the strong?
As my friend Ecclesiastes would remind me in his 9th Chapter
In the days where might and power could reign
Years after years dominating humanity
Which I am yet part of
Walking back and forth
But still trending on old timers
Which my heart has established long ago
Until now, my hope trails determination forever more.
