First blog post

Once in a while, there is this willful feeling of expressing and sharing of some quotes, stories, words in form of poems I feel like people definitely have to know about in order to have this epiphany from my own perspective…..

Something new!

Greetings from my part of the world. It is been like forever since I had posted on my blog and I have really missed my conversation with everyone. But at times, some breaks are needed. Moreover, school works and a couple of other programs had been seriously eating up my time. There are times, I would even be tired to cook dinner on getting home and sleep off like a worn-out bull (lol)… I know it’s for just a little pace of time, the end if the goal.

About something new,

I tried a lot of new things and made some changes in my routine. One of the few changes is: I had a haircut (it was really mind blowing). The kind of community I live in, value women on long hair more. It’s believed hair makes you beautiful or so they think. Anyway, my parents are supportive, when I decided I wanted a haircut my mum just smiled and asked why I wanted it. She just smiled and said she knows the feeling.

We had a funny moment,it was more of a bitter sweet experience because I knew I will miss my hair but I was gingered and interested in going for something new… It has been a sweet decision ever. The feel of breeze and water drops on my bare head has been so so superb. I will definitely grow the hair out… But while it’s still low, I will enjoy every moment of it.

When you yearn for a change, always go for it. Regardless of people’s opinion and views (note:A positive change though). Who knows, it might be one of the best decisions you would ever make. Be a little bit adventurous, a safe adventure at that.

Life

Life is like a piano…

Just like the black and white on a piano,

Life is made of different shades.

The good and the bad, the bitter and sweet, the memorable and the forgotten memories. (name them)

Several times,

Life’s worth is questionable……

The different shades tends to question and test our existence.

They push us and try us.

But, life is ours to live!

Life is worth living and no matter the obstacles,

Let us know that they are just a stepping stone to our destination.

Life is a mixture of different shades.

These shades are what gives it meaning.

Speak up! 🔊

A short story….

There was this day, I went to the public tap to fetch water because my house pump was faulty. On the queue I was, this woman was next to me. Then, a vacant tap came up on another queue. The right thing for her to do was to remain on the queue while I move over there since I was there before her…. Instead, she moved my bucket away. On a normal day, I am this kind of person that avoids trouble, so I would have kept quiet but on this day. I spoke up. I told her that what she did was bad and inappropriate. She tried to insult me, but I had said my piece and ignored her. I felt happy afterwards knowing I did something for myself.

KEY NOTE: I STOOD UP FOR MYSELF.

Mostly we let people take advantage of us in various ways, when we do we sometimes wish we had spoken up and either put the person in the right place or reject some offers. Also, we keep quiet so that we can preserve some friendship or even family bonds.

Stand up for yourself by not standing yourself up.

Most times, if you not standing up for yourself, It comes with a lot of “had I know”. Your inability to say no, will make you a dump for unnecessary office works, assignment, attitudes and so on.

The victim inside us all ceases when we stand up in opposition of that which oppresses or intimidates us. Something powerfully intrinsic happens when the courage to no longer be silent awakens within us and we are compelled to confront our problems rather than cower to them. The things that torment us thrive on our hushed fears and insecurities and they are made powerless by a resilient voice; An inner voice that says…“No More!”

In life decisions too, It’s important we don’t let ourselves to be shoved into making some decisions we would wished we had never made. We should try to stand up for ourselves when our peers tries to cajole us into doing things that are against our morality, believe or way of life.

Speak up when it’s right

So that you regret later in life

NEVER ENOUGH

Some things are never just enough

I have been theme short since the beginning of the year, I did not have an idea of what to write down as my first post of the year. This random thought just popped up in my head while battling with a very bad internet network. I am glad it turned out well as my new year post (even if the new month is half already).

Have your ever tried having a spoon of ice cream ( ice cream lovers like me can perfectly relate) and then you plan to keep the rest until later? The excitement and the anticipation of the LATER to become the MOMENT . What about the feeling after calling a loved one and you which you could go on talking forever.

Indeed some things are just never enough!
We yearn for success and progress just the same way we yearn earnestly more for the above listed materialistic things.

As it’s a new year, we have a long list of new year resolutions or even shorter lists (depending on what we have in mind for the new year). Even while making lists of the new year resolutions, you might observe that the list is never enough…

In all we do, we should realise we might not get enough of certain things. This doesn’t incline you aren’t getting them: they aren’t just enough.

So, don’t just go out thinking and feeling downcast! The year is only just started!!

Wakeup call

We all claimed to be wide awake whereas we are lost in deep slumber;
Beneath our very nose,
our values are been trampled on.
We shout in total support cheering on our captivators;
Because we think we are captives free,
deep, deep we long in this slumber living in total denial.
Where we are meant to stand up and speak up for our right;
We linger and turn our face away from the injustice.
We let ourselves be lost in the mirage of euphoria!
What happens when this euphoria vanquish?
What happens when we wake up and find the perfect life we thought we were living was only a mirage?
What happen when we realize we are really in chains?
Though not the physical shackles, but in chains both socially and mentally!
Our rights, freedom and sense of living in great danger!
What happens if it is really too late when we snap out of the euphoria we created?
What happens if words can no longer describe the state we are in?
What happens! Tell me what happens then!!
Are we going to wake and confuse reality with our conjured imagination?
Convincing ourselves, telling ourselves the same lies we have told ourselves over and over?
It will get better in time while we fold our hands doing nothing!
Are we going to turn our faces away and leave it for the future generation to fix?
Believing we have given our best already, then they can probably do better than we did?
When we did not even give a quarter of what we have got!
How long are we going to continue like this?
How much more have we got till we lose it all?
It is time we wake from our slumbers!
It is time we cry out!
It is time we speak out!
It is time we unfold those arms!
It is time! Yes it is!
We cannot continue to keep mute; we cannot continue living in captive!
We cannot continue the way we are living in denial; we cannot continue in this false hope!
Things cannot get better until we stand up, united and give it our all.
This is a wakeup call!!!
