notes to my future self (10)


1. we cannot all be strong.
by remaining weak,
some await the strong
to prove their
strength
and that is brave enough
2. lose yourself to some moments.
there are the places your mind would dwell
when you withdraw into your shell
3. try to remember to smile
when in tears:
it's ridiculous so maybe
that'd ease the pain.
4. never for once lose
faith in God and yourself.
if you forget,
look back the bumpy road
you're now ahead of.
5.  when you get into the
"i hate my life" zone
call a friend,
have a nice conversation;
a laugh or two maybe.
6. never be ashamed of the things
that make you cry.
frailty is strength.
tears are it's sword
and your pen,the soldier.
7. bounce a ball once in a while,
life is like gravity.
it pulls you down but
you have the choice to be static or bounce.
philosophy 101.
8. never abandon your belief and values
even if you're the last person on earth with them
be true to your values,
the pricelessness of them
would create a new nation
through you.
9.  love, but never lose yourself.
in loving be wise,
do not forget who you are.
that, is loving sincerely,
presenting yourself
as you are
not the image you think your partner needs.
10. smile more often.
it is like the key to opening
so many unlocked doors.
it's hard iknow.
think of chocolates,
that'd do the trick.

I'm a Buffer Girl pour l'Amour

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

The City That You Were

i was Jos
and
he was Lagos. i was the quiet streets of Rock Haven:
the houses separated by the heavy silence
of unanswered 'hellos' from neighbours.
the absolute conservation of shades the trees
cast here- was totally me. he. he was the busy streets of Obalende:
the unrepentant conductors yelling,
'Yaba! CMS! Yaba! Yaba!
the circular circulation of human sweat waving
through the air like Oxygen.
neglecting the weaknesses of island Ajebutters and JJC pedestrians. at night i was the city of J-Town after 8pm.
quiet. eerily so.
soldiers securing fences of the selected few.
smoking stuff and drinking liquor,
with AK-forty-somethings to bring down any rebel who dared to equal. he was the busy streets of Lasgidi at night:
the traffic, in French translated to, "la circulation"
right up from Admitalty Way through the Toll gates.
Cars honking, drivers cursing, almost excitedly at each other.
LASTMA officials obeying the call to rip-off 'rich' drivers. …
