If I could turn back the hands of time, I would have lived the past years of my life being optimistic, and guess this piece would have had a better and more reassuring title like ‘Life is good’. Life is painted in black and white and if you are not careful and vigilant enough, it just might offer you a couple more stripes. I’ve seen, I’ve heard and awakened it, and above all, I’m pregnant with an ever-burning desire to live it, but the day to day hustle and bustle got me stuck in between doing right and wrong.
Who is to blame for all these misfortune? God created the world so beautifully, He went on to create man in His own image but we chose to eat the forbidden apple instead, leaving the shawarma to burn. Now, there’s nothing ‘Eden’ about our gardens anymore, what we have are just flowers surrounding our driveway with no single fruit to pluck. So I ask again, who let the snake in?
Well, I guess we should have been more conscious of the creepy creeping creature and gather up some boiled eggs and throw them all over the place, hoping it chokes to death. Eve, they blame for all the infelicity but I say Adam must have already been thinking of owning a surname as ‘Sandler’ and that’s why he decided to eat the fruit. But then, I guess it’s a little too late for regrets and pointing accusing fingers because the remaining four actually points back at us, so why don’t we stand up to do something to make a difference instead?
With that said, I’m baffled by a couple of stuff and only hope someone out there might have the right answers. You know, we all ate the fruit and instantly gained our sight and became wise, so we should be able to solve a couple simple arithmetic, right? Alright, let’s get to it… According to the bible, we were made to understand that Adam and Eve knew they were naked and rushed to cover themselves up with some leaves immediately they ate the fruit, so why do we still find some ladies out there walking about the streets naked all in the name of fashion, I guess they must have eaten the leaves and not the apple itself.
Crazy right, that’s what I thought, but I wouldn’t allow that derail me from driving in my point, as I’ve got my gaze fixed to the head of the nail and with these words, I’ll be hammering into us the essence of today’s inspiration and hope I reach out to a soul or two. On that note, allow me to quickly make a wish list in my head and hope with that, I’m able to relate to you some of my concerns and maybe they just might become yours too and together we can make a change and make the world a better place to live.
I hate to slap the taste out of anyone’s mouth but if I could, I would have been president of this beloved country of mine and rule again as a military leader, reintroducing the “War Against Indiscipline” that was first introduced in 1984, and have those so-called untouchable corrupt leaders locked behind bars. They are the cause of chaos and anarchy currently. People fight to cast their votes so that they and their children can have a better life but it’s their private jets that are landing and their containers taking turns at the seaport, yet they expect us to keep num about their activities. Really?!
Well, I don’t know about you but my voice must be heard because it hurts to see an elderly man who must have served the country all those long years of service still mounting the gates at our local stores and neighborhoods, when provisions should have been made to support them for the rest of their lives. Our mothers doing petty jobs just to survive and there they are (The Ignorant Generation) cruising Lincolns and Bentleys, cursing our heritage. It’s an unforgivable abomination to suffer so much for a child who grows up to forget you and I pray that wouldn’t be our portion. If I could, I would have our fathers and mothers take trips to the Bahamas and we all can return back to the farm to cultivate a better tomorrow. I would stop piracy so that our hard-working Musicians, Actors and Filmmakers can begin to enjoy the fruit of their labour, and royalties paid to them for their outstanding work.
Fortunately, Nigeria is fast taking on the world but what are you doing to contribute your own quota? Are you involved in some internet scam and destroying the image of this glorious country? Well, it takes only a while for time to catch up with you and when it does, you’re sure to vomit every pounds and dollars you reaped a fellow human off, or you can as well right now just follow my lead and choose to stay clean. We’ve all made some wrong choices at some point in our lives but how long do we intend to keep acting ignorant when we know the truth? My brothers and sisters, if I could, I would bring back the girls and the glorious days when the world was afraid to get toe to toe with our senior national football team. Thankfully, we are beginning to get our mojo back and the world is about to witness a takeover, as our great Super Eagles fly the Green White Green in Russia, don’t say I didn’t warn you. God Bless Nigeria!
