Words

WORDS Are words mere words? Or loud whispers? Our innermost contemplations? And echoes of our hearts? But words have meaning Or at least they ought to have; Words can bring sorrows or joy They bear on their wings: tears or smiles, For by the word of a man Wars have been fought; By his utterance Love also found a place…

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

Being a father

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