UNTITLED

we sit around
waiting,

for the right
time to decide
if we should let
our hearts decide
finally, what
our head warns
against.
we sit around
mooing,
grumbling under
our breaths
knowing the solution
to the questions we
so lazily repose,
rephrase,
but stubbornly
deny.
we sit around
on bums aching
asking why
our lives
aren't seasoned
by a God
we so often;
in hypocritical elegance, deny.
he beckons,
we run,
and  back,
we come crawling
on scalled knees.
we sit around
frozen,
by the melt down
of the very many
emotions,
we suppressed all
the while
saying,
"tomorrow, I will address this",
decades upon decades ago.
we sit around
with our necks
bent around, struggling
to catch a glimpse
of the other's worries,
trying so hard at
seeming uncaring
to the rumours
running around their
affairs.
we drop our's
and pick up their's
with utmost criticism
and lust to dominate
we sit around
in square-shaped
circles
of unequal ends,
killing precious time,
fixing each other
with disintegrating tools.
layers upon layers of
broken pieces
forced together,
in organized chaotic
indiscipline
we sit around
waiting for
a pre planned
miracle,
chosen with careful
and precise judgement.
waiting,
never receiving,
losing,
never obtaining
we sit around,
tonight,
looking at the constellation
mooing over
a thousand and three things
we would do better
if we were one of the shining things
high above
as we sit and shit
in each
other's affairs.

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.
