The Red Flag

I heard the voice that says, Run, Run, Run
But I stayed
I thought (to myself), why not give a second chance?
Perhaps!
Perhaps she may change, perhaps He may change.
I saw the signs,. It was clear. As clear as crystal So glaring to the prying eyes, but then, why shouldn’t I ignore this too, after all we are all human, susceptible to a fall I thought to myself.
Oh, the power and allure of Love,
Like the coca and heroin, so addictive even to the one that wants to just try it
.
Love shields it all after all, so I choose to see the good not the bad.
So I choose again to ignore the RED FLAG,
What if he is busy?
Then it struck like a lightning as my heart pound,
Then it was late; too late.

Then I said to myself next time
Pay attention to a ‘red flag’ during an ‘invitation to a treat’. Choose not to ignore it, while seeing the other side, it will only hurt you in the end.
Red flags are signals, they are signs, relaying a message- ‘RUN – RUN – RUN’,
I am Bodi.

DEPRESSION

Depression,

How do I explain the pain?
How do I explain the fear?
How do I explain the emptiness?
How do I explain the sadness?
Like the splashing of blood, when the dagger slides slowly but deeply into the heart
I lost interest in everything.
Lost interest and appetite
And suddenly became mean.
I may smile, I may gist, I may look just fine
But deep down, my heart is filled,
Filled with sadness,
And lots of unanswered questions!
The more I ask, the more the pain.
I don’t know me anymore.
I don’t know what has become of me,
I am now a stranger to myself.
But then He whispers unto me,
I know who you are child.
I know you by name.
I know the plans I have for you,”
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29
 

So fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

A Life of Impact

What’s your contribution?

Most times we live our lives trying to impress others, rather than making impact. Always remember that at the end of our lives , we will only be remember for two things , The problems we cause OR the Problems we solved and not the number of people we are able to impress. by BODI

The Answer I Never Regret

And he said to me “It’s better to date a sinner who will understand me and we walk towards perfection, than to date a so called righteous person who denies you all the pleasure you deserves. If you won’t or can’t give me sex than I would  rather end the relationship,  of what use is a relationship with out sex or romance? ” this were is exact word,
with out thinking  twice I gladly accept the offer and say I need not think before I answer you so be it,  I rather date a person with a broken spirit than to date a harden sinner who makes sin his inheritance.

Tribute To A Hero


You came in to our lives and you brightened our countenance,
You embraced everyone that comes to you and showered love recklessly,
You were selfless wanting to impact life’s at all point,
You loved humanitarian services, no wonder you taught the kids principles for a successful life,
You cared for the sick and all you wanted was to see humanity healthy,
Dr our heart seems heavy, we miss the genuine smiles, the impact you left with us is undeniable,
Oo death you have picked a general who knows to stay on his post no matter the pressure,
Death you slowly came in to the company of the great and you picked a mentor whose genuine heart was an example to all,
As a person and as a community we miss you,
This wound is fresh in our heart,
Our only consolation is that you are in a better place,
We long to see you and we long to be with you,
We love you and we can never forget you,
You have won a trophy in our heart and that cannot be denied,
Tribute to a fallen general, you are not just an army man,
You are a general in heart and disposition,
Love you big, rest well general, see you in time to come.

Our tears refuse to be controlled.
Success nexus miss you.
You are forever in our heart

It Worked For Me

The Most Important Thing is to Try everyday
at least if you won’t act, just do “The Thinking” daily
One Day,
When the gods give you a proper Knock on the head
for Toying with your Talent,
You Will Act
Somehow it Worked for me.

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.
