Month: April 2018

TO DO LIST…

Talk to the young Talk to the old Talk to the rich Talk to the poor; Learn from the ant Listen to the bird, Watch the sunset Gaze at the moonlight; Be friendly Have good friends; Enjoy your life Prepare for death, Fall in love Go round the world, Be quick to listen And slow to speak; Be positive Take…

Appreciation April

As the month of April is drawing to an end, I would like to reflect on what we’ve achieved and how appreciating others and ourselves has helped us become better humans. Firstly, it takes great strength to zoom into our flaws and compliment one another. Especially as we are scared of what others may think of us, or if it…

THE PRICE OF LIFE

For food and shelter A man may falter But why at his soul’s expense Lose his common sense? Indeed life is hard And the ground is indeed hard; For even with a man’s till The earth may yield small still So do we blame him? When his demeanour is but grim? And he thinks of selling his soul For there’s…

Appreciate your insecurities

After an interesting week, of both good and bad news, I was musing about how some of don’t appreciate our natural beauty enough. Let me start with myself. I can’t go out without eyeliner some eyeshadow and lipstick, to me, that is minimal makeup. But I realised that each night when I take off my makeup I fall in love…

Purpose

things align for a reason, unknown of the purpose or reason, within it, every crack and weakness is exposed all the glory it ever had, just goes but appreciate the fact that it came and went, appreciating the fact that, there will be a development of someone who aims to perfect themselves, of someone who aims to be more than…

Being a father

I stepped into ShopRite in Jabi Lake Mall, Abuja (the Federal Capital of Nigeria) with a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers.

IN THE HERE AND NOW

IN THE HERE AND NOW Many of us abide in the past And in the future, get lost Sometimes we forget there is a ‘here’ A ‘now’ that we live in here So why go back and forth And in the end, lose forte, Of either battling the past Or running to the future too fast? In the here and…

Attitude

While I was reading a devotion, I came across something that made me think. It said: Did you know that your level of gratitude could have a direct effect on your attitude? What are you thankful for? Some people are like thermometers; always alerting us when things aren’t right, and constantly a victim to the “temperature” in the room ……

Nostalgia

NOSTALGIA This is my safe haven When life seems like a prison, The gentle breeze passing through A song giving me a cue Ascent telling stories Of my growing up days; Then other times It’s sunrise, Slowly gliding with regal splendour Bringing out my best demeanour; Breakfast time with family And late night stories by moonlight: Playing under the rain…
