I sit here trying to pen down or scribble an interesting/entertaining note of some sort as the latest contributor on this wonderful blog I stumbled on recently.
The thing is I am like everybody, even if I try to think otherwise (don’t we all) but like everyone I don’t like getting a bad review or getting laughed at.
So I decided that my very first contribution on this blog be a freestyle of some sort touching on various topics concerning us even the one we tend to ignore because we feel we don’t have a say.
To me life is a maze and the further you go the further it continues and it gives this little gems along the way called “blessings” just like they do in temple run.
In this mystery maze, we sometimes make turns to a dead end because of ignorance, pride, etc. and some give up out of frustration. But like in any normal maze (unlike the one in Harry Potter) you can turn back and make it right.
Unfortunately we sometimes make a maze within a maze for ourselves in our daily dealings (how it happens sef e dey confuse me).
The me of old would probably look for a cutlass and hack through the maze not considering the fact that it could be made up of concrete or metal too.
I am the kind of person that sees the bad side of something first before even thinking of the good and I must confess I miss out on the good parts when I am done, I do that because I always want to be ready when the bad side finally arrives (believe me I am never wrong in that) and I get frequently misunderstood too. I don’t know if anybody does this when they write exams, the part where you make sure that every “fillable” part is filled even if you no sabi wetin dem dey yarn or in objectives count the correct answers to see if you’re up to atleast a quarter before trying your luck or wishing your dead uneducated grandma will appear and help you.
This leads me to the part where as sad as it is many of us live our lives trying to please (tell me if I am wrong) the wrong people. The same people that barely notice or tolerate you or care as much as you do. I see this everyday on social media (bestie this and that).
This takes me to the upcoming election, where like we know in our beloved country Nigeria it is a “do or die” affair. I’ve tried everything to NOT show concern because to be honest it will take only the grace of God, I’ve even tried to be neutral as possible but I won’t lie I am deceiving myself. Like everybody knows there’s no in-between for good and evil. So those of us inciting violence or still trying we say thank you. (Shebi na still your country na until you start to live like refugee for UN camp for another country). If there’s anything I’ve learnt from 24 or Scandal, these politicians are closer than we think or know, go to Abuja and see them chilling together (some na even next door neighbor) and their children dey marry themselves. You go dey try kill yourself while dem dey chill and their children dey instagram their exotic holidays and cool stuff *breathing out fire*
