POEM: THE NAG- AWAY



What is absolute perfection?
Why am I always in thought of what to think?
What I tend to do is what I feel is right
Who I really am is what I spend every waking day discovering
How I feel is the rhythm my heart beats to
When I choose to cry is when I should be strong
When I hold back the tears is when I should cry..

Why I won’t let go is how fragile my heart is
What I cannot understand is how normal life can be
Things I cannot see are right there in front of me
Those I cannot reach, I search desperately for
People I laugh with, I should chastise
Moments I should capture, I’m lost
Memories I should hold dear, I forget
Memories I should forget, I recall
Times I should live, I’m cold
Times I should be silent, I’m bold
Things I should straighten out, I get tangled in
Times I should get entangled, I shy away
Times I should be serious, I play
Times I’m to play, I get serious
Focus is one difficult task
Discipline far off as dusk
Times I should speak up again, be bold, I bluff
Times I should console, I’m weak
When I’m consoled, I dwell in denial
When I wish to be spontaneous
I have to remain in control
When I choose to act, it’s in vain
When I don’t, I’m in pain
What is constantly in my mind is clear
Why then does my life remain blurry?
All I ever wanted is happiness
What I see each passing day is faux
Promising humans somehow
 End up tormenting

If only you’d see me standing here
Maybe, just maybe, every other thing would
String together
And make more sense than I choose to care

Why should one feel so lonely
In a world full of beautiful people?

And in three hundred and twenty-ten words
Nothing is not unclear

Ado Awaye: The quiet town and mountains sitting pretty

If you’re thinking of the next place to tour in Nigeria, get in here, you might just be in luck.

The town of Ado Awaye is fascinating for not only its tourist sites but also its historical mythologies.

This review will help enlighten and prepare you for the trip to Ado Awaye with Lagos as the take-off location. This means your interpretation of logistics for this trip should be measured based on your current location.





Preparation When preparing to tour the town of Ado Awaye, these are a few things to take note of:

1. What to take
Because you’re touring, it is important to travel as light as possible. This means while packing, you should go for only essentials. Try assessing each item you intend to pack with these two questions: ‘Do I really need this?’ and, ‘Do I have another item serving the same purpose this said item offers?’.
Usually, 80 percent of the time, if you find yourself pondering over the above-italicized questions, the item in question will usually not be important.

Americanah
I don’t care for any other opinions on the themes of Chimamanda Adichie's Americanah. For me, true love made up one of the predominant themes. A theme I hoped and begged the universe to grant me.
The novel’s heroine, Ifemelu would begin an intriguing affaire with her beau Obi from Secondary School.
They’d go on dating through a few years in University before Ifemelu would leave for the U.S. to get her first higher degree.
As much as I have never researched this, I strongly believed Chimamanda was mirroring a part of her own life’s story in Americanah.




First, Adichie had studied Pharmacy for a year and a half at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka before leaving for the US to get a first degree.
I fed on this keen theory of mine, convincing myself it was thoroughly true and then hoped and prayed for a tailored pattern of romance for myself.
This tailoring of another’s narrative is just the way some Nigerians meet a trusted tailor with a particular design they’d want to be …

I’ve always known true love exists; always and convincingly known.
