HEART OF GOLD

Standard

A ROMANTIC POEM TO PUT YOU AT EASE THIS FRIDAY. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, GUYS!!

Golden heart, royal feet

What fortune made you cross my path?

Strong hands, gentle lips

What does your heart yearn for?

What does your spirit say?

Would our love burn out soon

Or would it glow eternal?

Oceans and Rivers flow unhindered

When they flow with creator’s breath.

Love and freedom are childhood friends.

They danced at the village square together

And learnt to be men of steel forever.

They would speak for us

They would not lie.

So, rest my Warrior, my oily priest.

Little Hyenas laugh all night

But they always know Mama’s voice.

THE JAMES BOND SYNDROME

Standard

He walks into the room,black tuxedo and white starched shirt. All eyes are drawn to him, as pins are drawn to a magnet.He always wins, even when he makes mistakes. He’s the king of machines and latest inventions. He gets to kiss every lady in the room and it’s no crime. C’mon. He’s James Bond!

This is the syndrome that plagues a lot of men these days. My mother used to call them Casanovas, my grandmother called them ‘Woman- wrapper’ but we simply call them players.These brothers attempt to rewrite history. They never commit to any sister or at best, just for a short while.They don’t believe in the law of nemesis or the golden rule that says “Treat others how you want to be treated”. They think ‘i ll never grow old’ and their philosophy? Life is a party. Rock it till the end.

Now, I must concede one little thing to these guys, they are eye- catching. They have got style and lyrics, the ingredients needed to make a girl’s pulse race. But you see, sisters, if any of you have been on the dating scene long enough, you would know that with these breed, the story is always the same.

The problem with them is not their looks or their song, it’s their inspiration. Women are no different from a designer perfume, to be worn till you acquire another favourite. So,one piece of advise to the ladies. JAMES BOND IS AN ACTOR! IT IS A FILM! wake up and smell the hot coffee! Unlike the nusery rhyme, Life is NOT a Dream! Get rid of the Mills and boons Stories in your head. The ending may be right but the process usually isn’t. A man who you had distrusted and despised for decades with good reason usually doesnt turn into a symbol of trust and constancy overnight, ingredients necessary for lasting love. At best, they glitter for a little while, then go back to their dull gray colour again but usually after putting a dagger through your heart.

Consciously desire to be attracted to and sought by the right kind of men. Men who would treat you with respect, honor and appreciate your strengths and your dreams and simply understand that commitment means to be present both emotionally and otherwise.

Let James Bonds remain in the cinemas and let the real men step up. Cheers.

NO FRESH AIR WHERE I LIVE

Standard

There’s no fresh air where I live,

Uptown, downtown, every day

A sea of cars, horns blaring, chaos is today’s order-

Bills you can’t afford, pay that cannot preserve,

Sweat on my brow

Cursing, praying, hissing, hoping

I dream of better days

While caterpillars, earthworms and cankerworms eat up

My nation’s belly-

They get fat on our gold and blood

I hate them, detest them,

My very words, a blank mute screen.

 

Garbage on the streets, car decks turned on high,

Beggars, thieves, hawkers and thugs,

One big party, my yellow Lagos

Potholes on bad roads,

Electric poles with no electricity,

Scorching sun yet poor solar energy systems,

Why o Why-

 

Daily I pray for a better tomorrow

But my hope is dimming day by day

Soon I will flee as I have done in my heart a thousand times

Only to return when empowered

 my tomorrow, today.

WELCOME TO MY NEW WEBSITE!

Standard

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my new blog! This is just an introductory post so I’ll keep it short and sweet.

I decided to start a blog for the simple reason that if I dont, I will go insane. I have a very busy schedule but recently, I discovered that I have been writing in my subconscious, while I eat my lunch (on a hundred of pieces which I then lose and never find) and even in my dreams. I tell you if I dont start blogging, I ll surely run mad!

 

Over the next few months I plan to be writing and sharing posts about various topics that I find interesting and I am sure you will enjoying, too. From lifestyle topics – I am a mother of three boys, all under the age of four- to legal issues- i am a lawyer- to religious issues- I am a christian who loves the Lord Jesus and isn’t afraid to say so.

Caution: I have a “special power” that I would be using often in this blog. I can literally think 10 thoughts at the exact same time, not one after the other, no, at the exact same time! So, please bear with me if the thinking “lines” cross sometimes but I am sure you will have fun agreeing with, disagreeing with, adoring or reviling the insides of my brain.

That’s it for now! If you’d like to be kept updated with my posts “Like” this post or subscribe to my blog.

Enjoy!
