As soon as mankind learned to work the soil to grow food, they also began to construct early, crude forms of garden hoes to make the way of life , as a little child I could not know where Food come from until one day I slept hungry and the next day was in told to see where am stepping , looking down soil was the only object on ground, the next step to ask how can soil produce food ,the answer was enter in the house check any tool having a handle and the cutting blade bring it forth and drill one hole , get a abean seed put inside cover it continue to water it until 2 months  will understand how a metal gung blade is able to make you grow. These days the word “hoe” is used as an insult in many places, carrying all sorts of negative and belittling connotations and yet without it None can live healthy that is why I appreciate hoe, Through out my life time I have been wounded,made tired , beaten and hated just becau…

About my Environment

oh my!!
what a lovely sky!
green dry all around
weather, water or ground
what if trees are removed?
pollution will increase, its proved!
conditions will be sad
how sorrow and sad
the lovely trees
home of birds and bees
the world without trees we can't afford
the soil will also erode
barren mountains with dry land
now future is in your hand!
we should all not refuse our responsibility
remember, in our lives trees have the most utility!
Let's plant more trees to conserve our environment

Prayer of the Woodland Trees

Image
Iam the heat of your earth on the cold winter nights, the friendly shade screening you from the summer sun, and my fruits are refreshing draughts quenching your thirst as you journey on.
I am the beam that holds your house, the board of your table, the bed on which you lie, and the timber that builds your boat.
I am the handle of your hoe, the door of your homestead, the wood of your cradle, and the shell of your coffin.
I am the bread of kindness and the flower of beauty. 'Ye who pass by, listen to my prayer: Harm me not.
(This prayer has been used in the All African countries Forests preservations for more than 1,000 years.)

Though much is taken, much abides....
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.


Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Tre…
