Scared to take the first step

By Moleboheng Mahasa, South Africa: Every few days on Facebook I come across this statement “Don't grow up, it's a trap”. I am not sure who originally coined that phrase, but it is clearly a statement that many people can relate to, and therefore feel the need to circulate it on their Status Updates. Growing up can feel like a […]

Four Months and counting…

By Moleboheng Mahasa, South Africa: I have come to realise that a significant number of people in our society do not understand the difference between a wedding, and a marriage. Some people are way more passionate about weddings than they are about marriage. And some people are downright confused about what the differences between the two are. I would put […]

Let me…

By Moleboheng Mahasa: Let me float high on a cloud of peace and joy. Let me escape the daily trappings of gloom and fly away to unexplored places. Let me drink in the majestic beauty of the scenery. Let the lush carpets of green instil upon me tranquillity and serenity. Let the stillness envelope my senses and shut down any […]

I cannot run away!

By Moleboheng Mahasa: I cannot run away from him. No I can't. No place is too far, too high, too low, too hidden, and too dark.  I get lost through the cobbled labyrinth of life. I go around in circles, winding up at the same place often.  I choke on the clouds of dust rising from beneath my feet as […]

I did it on purpose

By Moleboheng Mahasa Most of us are busy with things that do not enhance our lives for a period longer than a day, a night, a week, a month or even (because we are good at stretching things) a year.  We are ever striving, ever attempting, ever pushing to be like other people. We are ever fantasising, ever dreaming, ever […]

Let us throw money at it!

By Moleboheng Mahasa I have come to realise that there are a lot more things that money cannot solve/buy than I had originally assumed. Sure I knew that money cannot buy you love, happiness and all those kinds of things. Along with the latest fashions and accessories, I definitely thought money could buy systems that make a country run efficiently. […]

Eve's Notes

Etched across her forehead…

By Moleboheng Mahasa Pain has etched a love letter across her forehead. Those who encounter her need not even ask. It is written in her eyes and in the way she musters up a smile to cover it all. You can see it on the stubborn setting of her jaw. It is plain to see, pain has held her hostage. […]

I am pregnant!

By Moleboheng Mahasa I am pregnant with hope. Expectation is causing my whole body to swell up with joy. Positive energy courses through my veins and invades every nook and crevice within me. I feel this dream kicking inside of me, reminding me that I carry life. The seed deposited within me by the Father has fused with a willing […]

Love in Action

By Moleboheng Mahasa: The breeze is making an otherwise bearable cold winter's day, colder. The kids begin to arrive from school not dressed warmly enough. Most of their shoes are broken; their uniforms are worn out hand-me-downs.  My heart lurches. The emotion rising up is a mixture of compassion and sympathy. Children should not suffer like this. Undeterred by the […]
