What Somali Needs?

I have just read an article where the UN is calling for more funding for the Horn of Africa. I don't object that it is a good cause by good people but that is not what Somali NEEDS. Every other factor Somali is facing against the backbone of starvation was created by the conflict that has been going on for as long as I remember, before I even learned that if you put 1+1 you get 2.

For close to 20 years the world has stood and watched Somali turn into a FAILED STATE run by Islamic insurgents who taint the Islam Religion. I think we should go back to the drawing board and structure yet again what Somali needs.If the increasingly violent,chaotic situation does not end,then I am sorry that we shall continue asking for more donors to come on board. But for how long are we going to watch this humanitarian situation evolving? For how long will Somali continue being a state of anarchy?
It is not more funding that will end the humanitarian situation in Somali but Peace. Peace comes with a cost. The dire situation in Somali should not continue to be ignored any longer. The world should come together as a global village to combat and tame the crisis in Somali. What Somali needs is a total diversion from Aid and funding but instead help them from their pitiful situation. Their population is already exhausted and what it really needs at this point is guaranteed security.
What Somali needs is rapid deployment of peacekeepers to combat the growing efforts of the Al shabab especially now that the holy month of Ramadhan is about to begin.

Let us not fool ourselves that AID alone is enough, it will not help solve the humanitarian crisis. For as long as there is still no peace in Somali,the crisis will continue to evolve,the people will continue to die from the unplanned attacks from the insurgents or from the outcome created by the crisis.

What shall we do for Somali? What can you do? That is what all the international community should be concerned with now. Today I rest my main question:

What's The Point?

Its okay to feel angry,
Its okay to feel pain,
It's even okay to hate the person that did that to you,
But when that anger and pain become too much for you,
Come see me,
For I am your family and we gonna work through this together,
The sea of life,
That is how I would call it,
Life is too short to wrestle with bitterness,
And that is why I am writing what the point is,
For myself,for you, for us,
Thats what writers do,
They put pen into paper in times of devastating tragedy,
Just trying to make sense out of all these,
Maybe we will find clarity in some of these words!

I can cause multiple destructions in my anger,
I am cool until something sparks me
just then I erupt,
Just like a volcano.

I am humble until I am stirred,
I can be very arrogant,
and can break numerous spirits,
Just like the volcano,
I can be cool till I erupt.

Like a volcano appears beautiful,
so does my face before I switch,
My guarded heart with thorns ready to prick
Like a volcano before I erupt I am a wonderful site,
But when my lava shoots,
You can not stand me.

Yes this is me!
Experience me.

Shedding a tear for the dearly departed

The hard reality sunk in! 
In the midst of death there is life,
And i understood the meaning of it,
You cant go through life without caring who you hurt,
But the most painful thing that could ever happen,
Is to realize that you are both better off without each other.
I knew our friendship would never sever,
But I was wrong because that was just a line,

Sometimes I wonder how it got to the mistrust?
And the bad mouthing behind each others backs?
So many questions linger on my mind,
But most of them pass unanswered.
I never wanted you out of my life,
I never wanted it to end this way
But it did!

Brother and sister of nature,
sometimes the most important thing to know, 
Is when to get out and when to give in,
You could see the pain in my eyes when every other person believed the smile,
But maybe we were just simple friends,
That is why with one simple argument,the friendship is over,
That is why the sea of mistrust engulfs you,
moving on os simple but what you leave behind is all that makes it hard.

In the morning when you wake up and the day fades,
your make up rans off and eyes swollen from crying all night,
You taught me just to hold on,
A vital lesson I am taking with me to Neverland,
I dont want to wake up,
I dont want reality intruding my dream,
Life was Long you made it short,
But I realised just like seasons people have the ability to change.

From where I stand this is you,
The only person who was friends with me for me,
We hurt each other the most,
But since its not like I have many friends myself,
I can use every lying backstabbing one I got,
For great friends are hard to find,difficult to leave and hard to forget,
Friend are not who we have known the longest,
Its who came and never left your side,
This chapter has an ending 
I think our story was SHORT.
