Just Do It

An Aunt’s love for ants

She will never advice except for an ice

Today’s tale began on her pale

It’s a tale I must trail

Today I will sing

And will hope it sink

Today is sunny

Today is warmth

Today I’m strong

I know I could do it today

But I can do it tomorrow also

Why not do it tomorrow?

Today I let go

Tomorrow I shall do it

Tomorrow is not mine to predict

I’ve got to make it today

But a little more sleep I longed

A little more play I prayed

I fail to take opportunity of today

Hoping tomorrow will be today’s synonymous brother

I left it to chance tomorrow

When I had control over it today

I’ve got to worry about tomorrow

I’ve got to fill my mind with anxiety

I left it to chance; I left it to whim

I failed to see that today is the present

And that I can see and control

I should have known

I couldn’t tell it all tomorrow

It might be sunny today

But it might not always be sunny everyday

I am strong today

But I might not be strong tomorrow

Why not do it whilst I’m certain I can?

Today I live

Living to take control whilst I can

I Just Had Sex

The human mind is a miraculously, wonderfully, weird, complicated-crafted organ with a sophisticated capacity of unveiling mysteries and carrying out greater works. The Creator must have been a nonpareil craftsman.
Nevertheless, the extent to which this organically-engineered organ will function greatly depends on its host. The chemistry behind its operation may vary from person to person; albeit, from a generalized perspective, the power of the human mind is more than incredible.

Great inventors, dead and alive are praised today for their laudable achievements; less said about that, not without the power of the BRAINS behind such impeccable inventions. There be countless ideologies and theories to be considered in the quest to justifying the unparallel abilities of the human mind. These numerous conceptions about the mind include but not limited to the three core entities to be discussed later in this piece:

Self-Actualization, which dates its root from the psychological point of view, specifically in reference to the old-famous Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. According to Maslow, self-actualization represents the holistic progress of an individual towards the fulfillment of a meaningful life. It is the desire to live an accomplishing life, as an individual genuinely realizes his potential. A self-actualized person has a great sense of REALISM. In addition to such a beautiful life, they do not only embrace themselves but warmly accept others.
Who are you?
Where do you originate?
Where are you headed?
What are you capable of?

These questions sum up the whole concept of SELF-ACTUALIZATION

Self-Belief, when one is scrupulously able to realize his potential (self-actualization), the next crucial thing to consider is SELF-BELIEF. We’ve initially seen the power of the human mind; anything you can imagine yourself being or achieving is very possible. You have realized the real YOU, your potentials and the reality surrounding them. It is however important to be highly aware, the mind cannot, will not and can never engineer you to your desirable achievements until you believe IN and INTO yourself. Until this ideology is well conceptualized by an individual, it is once again impossible to actually realize the immeasurable ability of the human mind; much less, it fulfilling one’s desire(s). You become what you think and believe, the mind also becomes a product of what it is fed with. The positive mind will eventually produce positivity and the negative, negativity!

Act Now!, the very last item to consider is to “Act Now”. The veracity to achieving your desires greatly depend on a relentless zeal of acting now! Yea, you’re doing it now and not tomorrow. You only have today, tomorrow cannot be guaranteed. Self-actualized people believe they can make it and they do so in ACTING NOW! You can be the master planner of all time, the smartest of all; however, your failure to act now will outshine the immeasurable ability of the mind. Never forget, you will never see the best in you, how excellent you can be until you realize the real YOU, believing in YOURSELF and making a firm decision to ACT NOW!

Oops, I almost forgot this. In case you really wanna know ‘I just had sex’, damn, it wasn’t me…… I had a silly day eavesdropping a conversation between my dog Snoggy and cat Lotty; Snoggy said, Lotty I just had sex. Hilarious! said Lotty. Oh, my word, I woke up and it was just a dream. Snoggy and Lotty were great characters in my dream. I love the way you’re thinking dear reader 😅

Live Your Good Life

Competition in life breeds insecurity. We’re here on earth on different assignments and courses. When we spend our time and energy focusing on others, we miss out on our own paths to our God-given destinies.

The problem with unhealthy competition is that it’s a never ending cycle. There will always be a better somebody. There will always be people ahead of you in life yet you can be the best that you can when you are not competing with anyone.

True competition is one that competes with self to become a better person each day. Focus on yourself! If there is something worth competing for, let it be your own self at all times. Seek to be a better person each day.

Some people are insecure in life because they pay too much attention to others and not their own selves. Take what God has given you; the height, weight and personality and be proud of it. There’s surely a reason for them all. Just live life and enjoy every moment, you’ll look back one day and be proud of who and how you were made. you’ll be blessed by it.

Live your own life. Seek to become a better person each day and become your true and highest self!

So Much To Live For

In the deep

Where everything is dark and quiet

Perhaps unheard

When men birth tales

Tales untold

Tales of great and murmured longings

In the forests of heart

Dying hopes

Unsatisfied longings

Many a need

And ever exceedingly wants

Needs of family

And of love and of life

Just these satisfied needs and life would be eased

And burdens will be lifted

Ohh sheered deceitful hopes Amidst unfazed wishes

We never live to know and accept

Agreeing to it to be fate

What happened to faith?

Like the Inspired word recorded

With your eyes you shall see Canaan

But never your footsteps be buried in its sands

Aspirations against ‘fucked’ reality

Hope against weak thought conceptions

Crushed dreams

Life seemingly presenting the choice of mediocrity

Against wishes and esteems

Who do we run to?

And what do we run for?

Now before me are choices

The choice many make

Perhaps in the wake

Against desires and wishes

A battle rarely won

But against all odds I choose to live Living for hopes and not popes

Against crushed souls and critics

Even pessimists and the tenacious-ridden offs!

On the inside is a blazing glow

Steering us to grow

Making the difference

And in it is a buried confidence

Ohh now I know;

So much to live for!

The Meaningful Life

A meaningful life is in the freedom to live your own life and not somebody’s life, dreams or aspirations for you. It is easy to fake living; it is easy to try imitating everybody. It is easy to speak the language of every man. It is easy to live life to meet the demands of family, society and the status quo.

There’s nothing special about all that. A meaningful life is in taking the decision not to be like anyone, but your true self.

A meaningful life is one that competes with itself to become a better person each day.

A meaningful life stems out of the freedom to realize true and highest self.

There is never a satisfaction in life outside realizing the real you and becoming the best you can at all times.

It might not be easy; It has never been easy! But let the joy of realizing true satisfaction after you’ve become your true self, drive you to walk that walk.

When you have come to the end of the road, you will have a course to smile as you look back

Live life of your own

Decide to live a meaningful life!

Do not settle for less

Do not live life pleasing others;

There is no honor in that

True honor is realized when you’ve found and lived self!

Live your dreams

Live the meaningful life

And realize true satisfaction

There Are No Roses Without Thorns

There is no success without failure

There is no learning without mistakes

There is no investment without loss

There is no found without lost

Yet, we have hoped that one day things will be better.

There is no smoke without fire

There is no flood without water

There is no reap without sow

There is no rain without lightening

We should remember that everything has a cause.

There is no love without hate

There is no laughter without tears

There is no courage without fear

There is no light without darkness

In our greatest despair, we should not think of our emotions but use our emotions to think. We should choose love over hate, courage over fear, light over darkness.

There are no roses without thorns is a proverb that should remind us that, no matter how happy we are, there is always some little touch of disappointment.

Believe You To Be

In a world where everyone can be anything they say

Yet people have got dreams created for you

And what they would want you to be in their minds

They create the future they will want for you

Family seems to have carved dreams for you

Friends who believe in you

And feels should be looking up to you

Disagree with the paths you are threading

Too many questions to answer

And yes I’ve got the answers

Yet ever misunderstood

My tongue seems to have changed when I try to explain

Or is it their hearing sense that changed

That made them never understood me ?

Oh the lonely road I took

The course you have decided to follow they don’t understand

There is an easier road

It will not offer you all of life’s goodies

But you are assured of much

…In a world where you can be anything

In a world where there’s will

In a world where you have the power to choose

Choose to live your dream

Choose to live purpose

Be yourself!

Live great

The Road Less Travelled

I walked a road

It was all muddy and rough;

It was a hard road

I walked a lonely road

I watched on as everyone took the smooth road by my side

The road was broad enough to accommodate everyone

It had not much roses

But enough for everyone

With this road we know what to expect;

There are no thorns and mud

There’s enough for yourself and family

Beyond that is a fallacy and false wish

A thousand people still walked on

Oh they won’t even wait to gaze on my hard road for a second

I walked a lonely road!

The hard road I took;

I’ve got to explain to everyone

Yet ever misunderstood

Why will you take the road everyone avoids!

A folly of madness

I walked a lonely road

It might be rough and muddy

It might be thorny

But there must be something beyond it no man knew and saw

There might be roses beyond the rough

These roses will bless a million lives

It will bring joy to the hearts of many

It will restore life to the dying soul

It will make me responsible for somebody’s hope and belief in God

Oh the lonely road I walked!

I walked a lonely road

Hard and tough it might be

Yet the joy of impact and blessing I will be to my world and God ultimately

Makes me endure it

So I walk the lonely road

Reach for Greatness

After a long period of hard work

And we are left with relaxing and resting to see the yield and outcome

And yet what seems to be presented to us be ye darkness and uncertainties

We are relaxed

And unshakable

We know the reward of hard work

We know things might seem unpleasant

There might be no sign of rain yet

But hey

It shall surely rain

This is the greatest certainty I found in hard work

Will a hard ground remain hard after several punches from the mallet and axe?

Or will the sky seem bright still after smoking from the earth for long?

After a long day of hard work

Take all the time off to relax and chill

For certainly the reward is showing up

A night experience

Culminating in light

Even Grace

A dream told;

The manifestation of greatness awaits!

A story shared;

The trails of greatness unfolded

Identity

Many times we’ve prayed

We’ve desired

And even pictured

A life full of roses

And never thorns

A life of incessant Joy

And seldom pain

A thrilling life only

And never a dark day

Of a truth no man loves hard times

But when you decide to live an uncommon life

When you begin to pursue the road to extraordinary

You begin to see things differently

You welcome what the ordinary man will avoid

You don’t rejoice only in good times

But in tough times as well

For tough times come to make you better and stronger

How many a man appreciates the brightness of the brightest lamp when it’s day?

But when there’s darkness

We do see the brightness of the lamp and admire it

And even praise it

When tough times come

It’s an opportunity to manifest what we are made of

The virtues we’ve acquired for ourselves in our closet are brought forth

And unfolded before men is our true identity;

Even the gold we purchased for ourselves in our closet

A golden identity

Manifesting in fire

Uncanny nature

Exhibiting buoyancy

Telling our story

Revealing the glory
