The Year 2018

*The Year 2018..*

The year 2018 began with a bang..With a bang? Of course!! With a bang..or rather Bangers! Cos in my neighbourhood, the year hadnt formally started until the atmosphere was pervaded with knock out sounds emanating from the various bangers..

The night before I had gone to the Celestial church beside my house to dance my heart out..From Shaku shaku to Azonto to Skelewu, I was just swinging my pelvis to the Lord with no care, while singing with my frog like voice..But who cares? As long as Jah was impressed..

I remembered when it was 10 minutes to the new year..When we suspended the praise and worship session, and started praying…The Prophet said we should pray like wounded lions.. Not willing to be outdone by my neighbour, I removed my shirt and started shaking my head vigourously while shouting, “Poverty Die Die Die!, No more insufficient funds! Village pipu hands off by fire!!

Then the coundown began, 5 4 3 2 1, Happy new year!!! In the spirit of the celebration, I ran like Usain Bolts to my Crush side and i enveloped her in a bear hug while making sure i tapped enough currents.. “Happy new year Chidimma” I said in a naughty tone while relishing the bodily contact… This year will be sweet, i said to myself while walking to my seat..

2018, the year of lofty expectations and aspirations, i told myself while penning a long list of resolutions. “I will learn how to swim, I will open a blog, I will finish the bible 4 times, I will ask Chidimma out and so on..

January crawled by like a snail, February followed suit limping along, March not willing to be left behind marched with dangerous speed trying to catch April by her tails.. “May I never be late for June’s wedding in July”, I prayed. At least the August visitor will understand September and October’s dilemna as I celebrated my birthday in November..

Now I am in December; Precisely nine days to the end of the year and i am yet to even finish Genesis, not to talk of opening a blog..I am swimming now tho, in my dreams if i may add..Lest I forget, Chidimma is now dating a Yahoo boy and i am currently serving my fatherland..

In all, I am grateful for the gift of family and friendship which i have been able to enjoy to a greater dimension.. Enough of this small talk joor. Jide!! Guy, shey u don see alert for allawee! Hunger dey wire pessin jare.

The Forgotten Celebrant

The forgotten celebrant

It’s exactly one year ago, when my parents threw a huge birthday party in honor of my born day.

Just a year gone, yet the sad experience I had still remains unforgettable in my heart, and I wish this year’s will be with much difference or better still, no celebration.

It was a huge celebration with more than one thousand guests in attendance, every one ate to stupor; they all danced and till they could dance no more. The chef was the best in town; the M.C wowed every one, and the DJ hmmmmm… Speechless!

The party was meant to be a memorable one for all the attendees especially me but little did I know it will turn out to be my worse nightmare.
I was left out of my own birthday celebration. Alot to eat and drink, enough fun but I was never in the picture of the event.

Seemed everyone cared more about themselves and less about me who was supposed to be the reason for the celebration.

To crown it all, three days after the celebration the camera man came back with the photo shoots but I was missing in all the pictures, neither was I captured even by mistake

Which popped the following questions by my dad; why was the celebrant not in the picture?
Why was she forgotten? Why did I spend so much if the celebrant is not pleased? Why the celebration? Why celebrate if the celebrant won’t be featured?

I shook my head sadly and said, “Dad, you and mum are also guilty because both of you were not also around.”

And as I rememberd my birthday today, it occurred to me that Christmas is just one day away. How do you plan to spend your Christmas?
Will the celebrant be featured in your celebration?
Will He be in the picture of the celebration?

Remember the reason for the season and don’t leave out the celebrant! As for me, no more celebration of birthdays. self-love all the way!!

Why Wait

Why Wait ?

New year is around the corner and a lot of plans are set to be achieved in it.
But wait a second,
Is there anything called new year or its just a delusion?
Is there any difference in the days and time?
Don’t be carried away only the figures change the days don’t.
Why wait till new year before :
You start reading that book?
You start writing the book?
Start the exercise?
Change the attitude?
Why wait  why not start now?
Start learning the skill now
Start thinking big now
Start the investment now
Start the savings now
Write the proposal now
Submit the proposal now
Always remember the difference is not in the days but just a second.
So why wait.
Start now and get your result now. You need not to wait for 2019 to get the results.

Sweet Life

Oh sweet life!
Sweet journey of life
I stood by the ocean
The life of treasure became my view
Every creature enjoying life to its sweetness
I stood and I marvelled
I marvelled at the wonders of creatures
Hmmm…..
Truly life is a wonder
I should have kept my view at life’s wonders,
But off, I took the path of my journey
Realising that my destination is such a distance
By now I know that I have to be committed to this journey of life.

Oh sweet life,
I followed your steps and almost lost me.
I listen to your melody and almost danced off time
Oh sweet life,
Noooo! I want to make a profound adjustment,
I want to enjoy life to the fullest,
I want to enjoy to smile and laugh
I want to gaze at the stars and marvel at its beauty
Oh sweet life
I want you to smile at me when I am aged;
When I am 100 years, may i look at life with joy,
May I fight only the right fight.
Oh sweet life!
May we all keep the faith.
