“I’m not you”

The beauty of a new life,The blessings of fresh opportunitiesThe jinx of fresh perspectivesThe judgment of those who stumbled. It says: ” I’m not you”“I think and act differently”“I’ll walk without stumbling because I know better”“I am me, not you!” Until avoidable tragedy strikes,And history repeats itself…Until posterity is damaged,And precious time is wasted. If…

Crafted Memorials

About two month ago, after a day of fasting and prayers, I sat down to catch up on my series on Netflix and suddenly my heart started to palpitate so much that I was so afraid I jumped out of my house, hoping to get some fresh air…Few minutes later, I realised something bigger than…

Bad Until Proven Otherwise

I reckon that life is bound to unfold with so many wrongs targeted at diminishing our values as a people; that is as sure as the day rising out of a dark night. We cannot change that! But, what do we do with the ills we have seen, the bad experiences that came out of…

Behind the Veil

What is the description of your desire?When you see it, will you know it?What is the picture of your nightmare?While it is yet to unveil, can you tell it by a tiny fraction of its reveal? It is a beautiful thing to dream,It is a glorious thing to live the world to come, even before…

It Begins and Ends at Home

In God’s infinite wisdom, the structural provision for ordering the earth is the family. As awkward as it may sound, nothing significant will happen in the earth without the family.

Unfortunately, the strategies that will salvage many people will be treated with scorn…

Help!

It will amaze you that the most considerate people are those you may consider less than you are;On the contrary, they are not as inconsiderate as you may think.Oftentimes, you would find that something in those looked up to looks down on those who look up to them . . .But for this, you would…

Trauma is what changes us

For over 11 years, I have gone from villages to cities and from private conversations to high-standing podiums; teaching that change is possible. My message is not anything new or special, it has been preached and taught by every visible and invisible person; it is not a scarce message; on the contrary, it is on…

The Fragrance of Hope

A lesson I have learnt in my entire life,Over and over again,The inherent power in a ray of hope;Is more potent than a million promises when they fail. A word in season,A message of succor just before despair,A song for life just when all is about to go darkThe chivalry of help just in time….

What is in a Name?

A good name is better than silver and gold; though the most visible of them are cast in silver and gold. However, what interests me the most is not the the description but the name itself? What is in a name? I happen to love epic movies so much – stories of kingdoms and reigns,…
