Cravings


There is nothing less satisfactory experience than having to get what you were craving for. At first the idea plants it self on your mind or someone would put it in your head then after a while you start having thoughts trying to figure out what the the thought is and then the thought become a craving , a yearning and it runs around your head all the time , some times it hides around the dark corner of temptation, it jumps out on your neck and take control then after its not you, till you get what you want the craving drives you
and you will finally arrive at the destination
you will be standing right there beside your craving , you watching it and he is having an ecstasy it might be for a little while but he is enjoying it and you not. craving will leave you right there, it will disappear and will feel alone and a little bit confused I assume that’s what happened to eve at the garden of Eden. After she ate the forbidden fruit the serpent wasn’t there, he leaves!!

This is so sad. See a poetry write up about Africa


The land of Generals without war,
Professors without discovery,
Politicians without ideology,
Wealth without prosperity,
Religion without piety,
Leaders without vision,
The oppressed without worries,
Courts without justice,
Criminals without fears,
History without glory,
Heroes without honor,
Schools without learning,
Artists without taste,
Intellectuals without thought,
Terrorists without identity,
Appointees without life,
Hunger without famine,
Change without progress,
Next level without foundation,
Democracy without citizens,
Unity without love,
Heroes without sacrifice,
Policies without plans,
Crime without culprits,
Saints without humility,
Integrity without performance,
Wars without enemies,
Billionaires without business,
Youth without dreams,
Elders without wisdom.

Wake up Africa! 🔥🔥🔥

Being There in the Crisis


“You’re called to give aid to people in distress.” Ro 12:8 MSG

You say, “It’s not my responsibility. I’m not getting involved!” Psychologists call this “compassionate disengagement,” the tendency to avoid helping someone in trouble. Whether your motivation is inconvenience, self-protection, or indifference, it’s wrong. “Being there” is how you demonstrate your love for God and your neighbor. And helping requires recognizing three kinds of crises: (1) Accidental or situational crises. These involve things like sudden threats to our well-being, disruptive events, unexpected losses, the discovery of a serious illness, the death of a loved one, a family breakdown, the loss of livelihood or security. Job experienced all these events together and wondered why God allowed so many bad things to happen to him. (2) Developmental crises. These occur in the course of everyday life. Moving houses, going away to college, adjusting to marriage, parenting, retirement, aging, declining health, and the loss of friends. Abraham and Sarah moved many times. They also endured years of childlessness and family stress, including the challenge of sacrificing Isaac. (3) Existential crises. These are when we face disturbing truths about ourselves. We may see ourselves as failures, grapple with being divorced or widowed, learn that our illness is incurable, experience rejection because of our race, class, age, or gender, or realize we may be getting too old to fulfill our life goals. True “helpers” understand, get involved, and encourage. They keep their eyes open, and are quick to “give aid to people in distress.”

Don’t be So Harsh on Them: Truth about friends


If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” — Mr. Albert Einstein

I personally believe that the way we exert pressure among our peers and friends isn’t fair. The other week I was a subject of argument among my friends about how I spend most of my time doing nothing. My friends believe that the only way to be productive is by earning cash. Unlike me, they argued that betting is actually beneficial than reading because a Gambler, when lucky enough, brings something to the table at the end of the day.

I respect every one’s right to express their opinion, but I feel it’s very unkind to measure others according to our metrics of success. A student can graduate, but take a few months without getting a Job, not because he’s damn but due to some weaknesses in other soft skills like networking. Being a top performer isn’t everything in the real world. Am a victim, I call myself an average student. Since my graduation last year, I’ve learnt that school really didn’t teach me much. I’ve learnt that in addition to the compassion and humility some of my professors tried so hard to instill in me, I needed more.

If I could get another chance at being in campus, I’d do my best to work on my confidence, Public speaking, writing and negotiation skills.

They are a killer outside here.

Back to my case, I’m a Strong believer in cooperation as a way to success and that judgement is a sure way of hindering progress. We are not all blessed equally. Where we are weak others are strong. Working towards uplifting one another is the sure way to bettering ourselves.

It feels bad being told the truth. In my case it was a blog that wasn’t getting too much traffic. Another time it was me being in a room without having a Job. The only thing I can control in the two situations is my effort. In the case of the blog, it’s posting. On the Job part,it was writing a CV and a Cover letter and leaving everything else to God.

It’s frustrating. I’m craving a good life but there’s just no much I can do to get it. Our minds are developing and the best investment I believe in is feeding our brains with knowledge and skills. Richness doesn’t matter to me that much,but I don’t know about you. If you’re below 25 reading this,I believe we should agree on this. There’s no point of having a lot of richness without the right brain to manage it.

That’s why our employed,working and entrepreneurial friends shouldn’t judge us harshly. They should empathize with us. They should understand that life isn’t a parallel line. They should understand that basic journey of life is detours. To my friends who’ve been victims, I’d ask you to keep doing your best. Play your role and learn.

Must Read For all 22 Year Old


Just before I started writing this article, I got a call from my mother asking me how am fairing with school. Well, as every one else would say, I replied I was fine. Genuinely speaking, I’m not! I’m tired, stressed and passionate to make this life better. I understand that this can’t be a single man’s Job, but am lazy, meaning taking shortcuts is my way of doing things. I want to leap frog 20 years ahead. I want to have a kind of wisdom that only a 80 year old me would have. I want to learn everything in this World. I want to be exposed to the darkest of secrets in this planet and yes I want to remain Young and naive and innocent.

This is my aspiration. I aspire to intelligence and am motivated by the need to think Differently. On 31st December 2018,I gave Christ a Chance. Days after that I got a revelation, a need to lead;that said I launched my Gubernatorial candidacy awareness. Three months down the line, I’ve been exposed to so many challenges and insights one being the need to think Differently. It was a lot to take in the first four weeks, but now it’s become my daily cup of coffee. I find reading and waking up and listening to Ted enjoyable. Even during my full time daily Job, I find myself listening to podcast along side my daily tasks. I have laid my hands on three issues of the End of and frankly speaking am proud of the aisle 2019 is taking me on.

But here is the sad part, exposure to so much knowledge opens your mind to things you’d rather not know. It opens your heart to hatred and anguish. It makes you cry sometimes. You feel a huge burden to make the knowledge you’ve learnt into use but still at the end of the day you feel like you haven’t done enough. Witnessing ordinary citizens getting manipulated and brainwashed by governments, Politicians, religious organizations and corporations is heartbreaking. On the silence of my midnight rest on the bed, all I agonize and crack my head about is what more can I do. Was launching my candidacy the wisest choice? What if it’s not in line with God’s calling? What if God wanted me to be something else? Am never sure, no one , not even the articles, books and the websites I read can give me that answer. That answer can only be found deep inside my heart.
