Here Comes The Latest ‘Bride’ In The World

This poem is dedicated to you all, lucky enough to make it (against all odds) to 2013!

I see you in the not distant future
Wearing clothes spun from gold,
Shining bright and blinding my fear
Hidden beneath your cloak,
I see simmering in the dark,
faint touches of the disappointments of
2012.

I am a ‘bride’, but not one so young
I know that I have seen you before
Given you my heart and danced at midnight,
In full glow of the music of your promises Continue reading

Life Is A Theater!

Life is a theatre so invite your audiences carefully. Not everyone is holy enough and healthy enough to have a FRONT ROW seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance.

It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships, friendships, fellowships and family! Everyone Can’t be in Your FRONT ROW.

Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention to: Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are just going downhill?

A Poem For #Aluu4!

Condemning the killings of the 4 University of Port-Hacourt students who were beaten and burnt alive in front of a crowd. The young men were accused of stealing laptops and mobile phones before being burnt to death.

The cheerless hope is the worst part of it….!

The way they lay there, beaten and broken, battered and bruised. Knowing their end had come for certain. Knowing that the crowd meant to see this through to the end. And yet, in the midst of all this certainty, in some small corner of their hearts, hoping. That something would happen, some miracle perhaps.

I am speaking of course, of the #Aluu4, students of University of Port Harcourt who were beaten and set ablaze last week.

Yippee…..Today Is My Birthday!

20120731-230341.jpg

Today is my birthday. I’m um… a year older than I was last year.

Every year, for as long as I can remember, my family and friends and fans alike have sent me birthday cards. Generally, my cards starts arriving about two weeks early. This year’s cards started arriving on July 25th, so they are getting closer…..hehe!

Inside a card, my mom once told me that I am the most handsome boy on mother earth, that she remembers my birth as if it were yesterday, (I’ll bet she does), and she wishes me happiness, good health and good luck. Above all, annually she says I should

Poem-Quote On My Birthday!

My Birthday! what a difference sound
That word had in my youthful ears;
And how each time the day comes round,
Less and less white its mark appears.

Enigma…..Oh Dad!

What Makes a Dad…

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it … Dad…
