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.

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.

simplest – but-most-important

This may be the shortest post ever in this platform, but most importantly, Its always good to use the simplest but most important of instruments ever invented ‘paper and pen’, so as to write down flashes of inspiration when they come. Most of us are full of ideas but lost them because we don’t pen them down. Remember that the smallest pen is bigger and better than the biggest brain, As we go about our endeavours  put in practice the act of jotting.

Believe you can make it

  1.                        BELIEVE

    The key to every door is what makes to access the needs,
    knowledge in an area is what is needed to access the area. Money is what can be use to access needs, money answer all things.

    Recently I encounter a reality, who told me that money is not all I need. He told me all i need is him, When I converse with this entity he told me his name was Believe

  3. he told me he is always between my needs and  reality, he told me everything I desire can be access through him,

  4. Believe walk me through all my needs, as he patiently enlighten me about access, he told me the first thing to do is ; to established that what I need is legitimate, after that I should make up my mind to acquire it.

    After that I should never give up, until I see it come to pass , he told me that other people that have encounter him called him Faith

    He said all things both plans and desires of the heart can be attain through believe
    He said money is good but no virtue can be compared with simply believing
    My companion left me thinking, He came in to change my dogma

  6. Believe it is possible
    Believe you can do it
    Believe it’s attainable
    Walk though  attaining it and simple posses it.

FRAGMENT

  • FRAGMENT
    Gather the fragment, well you say
    “That is small it is just a little piece”
    It does not mean , it is useless, too minut
    And you also say because it is small,
    It is therefore irrelevant, it cannot be use
    I rather leave it, I can throw it away
    Let the Ants, the Rats and Termites have it
    Amazingly the Ants doesn’t depend on you to eat
    So braze up gather it and put it together
    The pieces, the small fragments.
    Put them together
    Gather the fragment, the skills,
    Dreams, plans and knowledge
    Gather the fragment, until you have them together you don’t have the picture.
    Your skills may be small to others, your dreams may be mock
    Your plans and visions can be mocked
    But you must gather them together
    Those little things are all you need to succeed
    Just put on persistence, resilience and stay on it.

ESSENCE

ESSENCE

Locked up, pressed down , beyond measure ,Feels weak, feeble, frail.

up you stand, but soon on your knees back to the initials.

Oh no!!!!!

Life can not be life this way.
“How many times can I fail to understand life.

So you thought you are strong , until that very strength fails again.”

And you ask, is this life? ”

Today I am up and tomorrow I am down?
Today I am laughing and tomorrow I am sad?”

And you ask again, “can’t I smile today, and smile tomorrow?”

Ossh! Quite trying it your own way.
Remember the inward lock is like a lion that is cage, unlock the lion first.

And so you ask is life a failure, depression and troubles
No! No!! No!!!
Hold the thought there

HOLD THE THOUGHT

Permit it no access any longer
The lock can not be unlock by you.
You can’t give your self joy
the best you can is d mixture of sadness and laughter

 

So we all need an intervention
There is only one way out. You can’t get through alone so I suggest, drive, plunge , be completely connected to a greater force
That’s the only way to live.

 

FRIENDS

 So just like the roses
Bright and attractive
The beauty so undeniable
Friends are like roses
Friends add colour and brightness

The reflection of beauty is seen and encapsulated in friendship
Friendship is a seed of future
Like the brightness of A Star
Like the radiance of the sun
Friends are such an illumination
Friends are gifts
Like the lions that move in a pride

You are stronger amidst your family
Friendship is a source of strength
Strength is only obtainable within the circle of right friendship
Life can get much better when we harness friendship
Gather and harness the opportunities on friendship
Friendship is like the light of sun, it can light the moon your fellowship can light-up the weak

Friendship is a gift
We must treat our friends with all commitment and reverence
Friends are like angels, they come to our aid when we least expect expect.

Value your friends
Value Friendship.

OUT THERE

time was, time came

Time was when I had nothing, my rich friends fled and left me all alone, I accused them of pride, heck I even called them wicked

Time was, I had a lot,  I fled from my friends who had nothing and did to them what I accused my rich friends of doing to me.

Time was when I was a child, I saw my father as a mean man,  I said he maltreated my  mother. I swore to myself that when I grow up,  I will not allow anyone treat me unfairly.

Time came I grew up,  I even got married. I perceived that my husband will maltreat me so I maltreated him first. I did to him what I accused my father of doing to my mother.

Time was when I had no job,  I blamed my teachers for not teaching me well, I blamed my father for not sending me to school at a younger age, I blamed the Government for not providing the enabling environment.

Time came and I got a job but I did not really like my boss.  He was always scolding me for coming late to work and for doing a shabby job. But it’s not my fault. My home is far from my work place and since I did not graduate from a good school I can’t really do much.

So you  see, the problem is always out there and it’s always other peoples fault. We hardly accept any blame when things go wrong but when things go well, we take credit for it.

Would it were that I remained poor,  I would still be humble , would it were that I did my job well,  I would still have a job,  would it were that I was nicer to my husband, I would still be married,

WOULD IT  WERE THAT WE ACKNOWLEDGE OUR OWN FAULT.
