Feelings are good,
Feelings are nice
They remind us that we’re alive,
That we’re not like dry sticks of wood.

But feelings cannot always be trusted
For they flunctuate
Up, today,
Down, tomorrow.

But feelings are strong,
So strong
That they could make you feel like exploding.

I don’t want to be led primarily by what I feel.
Or I might regret it.
It’s won’t be easy controlling them (even for me)
But I know in the end
It will be worth it.


C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_road-007.jpgThe Road can be your friend,
When smooth and tarred
Easy to sight see from,
Allowing you snap non-blurry pictures
For your blog.

On The Road,
The hawkers are just within your reach
It seems like Eldorado
Paved with golden boli*

But when The Road is your enemy,
I wouldn’t wish such for my worst enemy.
It is untarred and jagged
With the accompanying ‘go-slow*’

As it bounces you up and down
You realize you have to ‘go’
But The Road has no toilet for miles.
This is when you know that it has become your enemy.

*boli is roasted plantain usually sold as street food


Meaning, “What will be will be,”
That’s what some of us were told as children,
By well-meaning parents,
Who had already accepted the status quo.

As we come into Christ,
We realize we’ve been lied to,
We can create our own worlds
We can make things we want to be,

Have You Met the Supernaturals?

They are a departure from the superhero norm
They wear no capes or masks
They act as sidekicks
Giving all the fame to One they called
‘The Only Superhero’.

Compassion goes before them
And love leaves a trail after them
Humility is the order of the day with them
Who ever heard of Superman turning down some free publicity?

They may not seem like much on the peripheral,
But even a blind man can tell that they’re SUPERNATURAL,
For even the blind are sure to leave their midst, seeing.

I Identify.

I identify with Terra Kulture, a successful culture and tourism organization that leverages on what others have pushed to the background: Nigerian culture.

I identify with Dangote Industries, who have done the seemingly impossible from the ‘dark continent’ and have just refused to be complacent regardless of their achievements.

I identify with Wole Soyinka, who speaks and keeps on speaking because as MLKJ once said: ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.’

I identify with Covenant University. A departure from the unproductive norm. An example of what we all can be if we just change our core values, from wrong to right.

I identify with the BBOG. For once, in modern Nigeria, we see role models of persistence and perseverance. Hang in there guys.

I identify with the hopeful Nigerian, who doesn’t just hope but works to see that hope manifest.
Who do you identify with?

Happy 55th birthday Naija.
