POVERTY


Are you mortal or immortal?
Few do not know and have never seen you
To them you are just a concept
To us you are real
Your visits are daily, weekly and yearly
We see you in our meals
Feel your presence during meal-less days and medical- less days
You sometimes come like ‘natural disasters’
Storms, drought, war, famine, disease, epidemic, unpaid wages, unemployment, terrorism
Whenever you strike, they become richer
Relief committees, resettlement, reconciliation, revolving and reconstruction they form
Indeed they relief the government of its money
Resettle their children in foreign schools
Reconcile with their pimps
Revolve the drugs to their personal stores
Reconstruct their mansions
After your visits rations of food are hurriedly sent after two weeks
Blankets come after second burial
Swarms of medical workers after miraculous cures
Why must it be us and not them?
They hold press conferences on our cordial relationship
They circulate brown envelopes and take photographs
They print posters for incredible accepted explanations
Why must they advertise us?
Poverty,
Are you a human being or a spirit?
If you are change your visits so that I too can teach them to resettle, reconcile, revolve and reconstruct

ANYWAY


People are unreasonable, illogical and self centred
Love them anyway
If you do good, people will accuse you of ulterior motives
Do good anyway
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies
Succeed anyway
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow
Do good anyway
Honesty and frankness makes you vulnerable
Be honest and frank anyway
The biggest men with the biggest idea can be shot down by the smallest men with the smallest minds
Think big anyway
People really need help but may attack you if you help them
Help them anyway
People favour underdogs but follow only toy dogs
Fight for some under dogs
Anyway, give the world the best you have and you will get kicked in the face
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway

LET ME BELIEVE

Let me believe you are my friend indeed
Someone I can go with anywhere
And not be afraid of anything
Let me believe you won’t ruin my life

Let me believe in your love
That they are pure and true
And not sensual and lustful
To drop me finally when you are through

Let me believe in your words
That when you say a word you mean it
And not full of lies
To destroy my life

Let me believe in your touch
That they are soft and affectionate
And not premeditated to lure
And destroy what I treasure
Let me believe

WHAT HAS LIFE TAUGHT YOU!

In my journey of life I’ve learnt some very vital lessons, some I learnt the very hard way though. Among them are
1. Life has taught me that he who treads softly goes far
2. Life has taught me that a clear conscience like a soft pillow helps you sleep well
3. Life has taught me that good things never come easily
4. Life has taught me that every cloud is silver lined
5. Life has taught me that true love is like a ghost which everybody talks about but few have seen
6. Life has taught me not to trust reconciled friends because good times cannot blot out old grudges
7. Life has taught me that friendship is a two edged sword, some friends can make or mar you while others are worse than enemies
8. Life has taught me that friendship can end in love but love can never end in friendship
9. Life has taught me that anger is a small madness which we only know the beginning but not the end
I could go on and on but hey, I also want to hear your own side of the story. What has life taught you?

TELL ME

Tell me of woes
And I’ll tell you of joys
Tell me of failures
And I’ll tell you of success
Tell me of fears
And I’ll tell you of confidence
For life is all what you make of it
Some fear the heights
And have remained down
Some hate the risk
And have not progressed
Some cry wolf even when its only a lamb
And so have remained an alien to success
For to reap in abundance
Is to scale the scary heights
Tell me of frowns
And I’ll tell you of laughter
and I’ll tell you of money hatred
And I’ll tell you of love
For peace is the heart that has her rest in God

SOLITUDE

In the solitary island
On the bed that I land
I dreamt of my honey
As some dream of money
He was smiling with affection
With his handsome perfection
He advanced closer
With heavenly tender
As I progressed for a kiss
The apparition got missing
Behold I woke up with despair
For missing my desire
O sweet loving dream
Bring my love in your stream
And tell me when to see him then

CANDLE IN THE WIND

am so numb, since I learnt yesterday that your life was cut short in an accident I've been blinded by tears. I want to write and write, tell you am sorry even though I don't know what am sorry for.I spent one year of my life with you,that period is etched in my memory, even when I left,you were still hoping that someday we'll be back again. I don't know what to say, my thoughts are just disorganized. How will your mum cope? Death you didn't do well. Ah some hot tears will never dry even long after our loved ones change mortality for immortality.
RIP OLUWATOBI ALABI BODE-KASEEM

COMING SOON

I've been thinking of doing something to reward my faithful readers lately, anyway soon I'll do a give away to appreciate those who visit and comment because really the very people that were like we'll always visit and comment on your blog are no where to be found, it's totally new people I met on the internet that have become loyal readers.
For now the give away will be open to only those who have been commenting consistently and to readers in Nigeria even though the bulk of my readers are in America.. Subsequently I'll do something better and encompassing.
Cheers and watch this space

TODAY OR TOMORROW

Today is the day you have been dreaming about
Tomorrow is yet a dream of prospect for you
Today comes before tomorrow you have in view
Tomorrow comes after today you have to venture
Today is the tomorrow you desired yesterday
Tomorrow may soon become another today of your life
Today is the beginning of the rest of your life
Tomorrow depends on how best you spend today
Today is the day that opens new opportunities of your success
Tomorrow’s harvest depends solely on what you sow today
Today requires your full concentration for success
Today be sure you do something tangible and worthwhile for your progress
Tomorrow and yesterday’s worries remain a hindrance to success
Tomorrow may eventually turn to be a fictitious dream of today
Today is your day to launch out and succeed
This day accords you with bundles of glorious opportunities
Forget your failures of yesterday and anxieties of what tomorrow holds for you
Yesterday has passed never to return again
Tomorrow is a dream of what may never be
Why bothering your today with the worries of yesterday and tomorrow?

BETRAYAL

Life is a mystery, a mystery that is a misery, the misery is manifold, the wretchedness of life is multifold, overreaching the wide horizon as the rainbow, its hues are as the various hues of that arc, as distinct too, yet as intimately blended. But how is it that from beauty I have derived a type of unloveliness? From the covenant of peace a smile of sorrow, but as in ethics evil is a consequence of good so Infact out of joy is sorrow born. I trusted you but you betrayed my trust. Some friends are worse than enemies really.
Like the phantom of man’s imagination, the will of purpose takes shape that will ultimately represent the desire of his bearer. A man can run away from a lot of things but never from his shadows and they say that the evil that men do live after them but I know that the evil men do live with them. It may not be today or tomorrow but your reward is waiting for you.
Now I’ve done this one burden is off my mind, I’ve carried it alone for too long.

SEVEN PILLARS OF CHARACTER

I stumbled on this article while browsing and I couldn’t resist sharing it with my esteemed readers. The principles are by John Hasell. Enjoy
Character is the very essence of a human being. It is one’s moral compass by which we conduct our lives and actions. Character evolves, and it can be developed although it does not change quickly. The seven pillars of character encapsulate the spirit of human character.
SELF RESPECT: knowing what we do and how we do it really matters
SELF RELIANCE: relying on yourself to make informed and workable decisions. Taking responsibility of own action
SELF EMPOWEREMENT: seizing opportunities to learn grow and build self confidence
PERSONAL VALUES: basing actions on strongly held beliefs and values courage and integrity
COMPASSION: Heartfelt concern for the good of others. Turning empathy into actions through service
TEAM WORK: more can be achieved by working together than working alone
ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN (SOCIETY AND NATURE): thinking globally and acting locally
