TELL KIPKIROR I HAVE GONE

The sun today is too hot; but not as hot as my tempers.  I am boiling over with rage I can barely see the path. I cannot feel the weight of the “Tenja” on my back; the stones are hurting my feet. Fury is a bad thing. By now you’re wondering why I’m in such... Continue Reading →
