Your vote counts

Nigeria the land our fathers fought for

is now a place where ours leaders are reaping from.

The masses are been exploited by thesame people they elected into power.

The youths are now left

with no jobs.

Graduates are forced to become thugs and criminals all because

they have no other means of survival.

Nigeria has now become the survival of the fittest.

The masses are used as tractors for ploughing and farming the land while the politicians sit back and await the rich harvest.

The politicians feed themselves to stupor on the national cake and the masses are forced to scramble for the crumbs and droplets from the table.

We gave them many chances but they failed us.

And when we cry for justice they kill us like dogs.

It is painful to say that the gorillas are now working while the crocodiles are eating it all up.

The minority now have their way while the 

majority no longer have a say.

Democracy has been rendered void and destitute.

Feeding from hand to mouth has now become the ordeal of the common man.

The people have become so gullible and myopic that corruption and bad governance has become unfightable.

The people have been bamboozled for way too long.

The economy of the country has virtually crashed.

The educational system has been wrecked.

Life and properties are no longer safe and secure.

Insurgence is now the order of the day.

But the good news is that there is still a sparkle at the end of the tunnel.

The people still have a chance at redemption.

The time to right our wrongs is near.

It is time to wake up and unite.

It's time to refuse any form of bribery and vote buying.

It's time to get our pvc and vote the leader who will take us out of this Egypt.

It's time to take over our rightfull place.

It's time to do the right thing by voting because our vote counts.

The trials of jethro

Jethro is a young man.

Growing up he had dreams and aspirations.

But all his dreams have been washed down the drain.

Life has been unfair to jethro.

He has bitten from the sour part of life.

And now his teeth are arching.

He has been to the tickest part of the forest and now he has lost his way.

Life has shown jethro no mercy.

Jethro has been through the toughest of life.

And now it seems all hope is lost.

Spending fours years in the university

Jethro is now hoping that his education will bring him fortune.

But employment has become the reward for his hardwork.

Toiling through the night.

Working hard under the hot sun during the day.

But nothing seems to be working for jethro.

Feeding from hand mouth has become the ordeal of jethro.

But it seems jethro is keen on not giving up.

He seems to be shaking the shackles and chains that life has entraped him with.

He seems to be taking each blow life is throwing at him.

Even though he has fallen many times,he keeps rising up.

Even though opportunities aren't coming.

Jethro seems to be building doors of opportunities for himself.

He seems to be turning every disaster into opportunity.

He seems to be finding everyway to be free from the dungeon life has kept him in.

He seems to now understand that the price for freedom is everything

It is said that opportunity comes only once.
But what if opportunities never come?
What if opportunities never come knocking?
Then I guess you have to build opportunities for yourself.

The secret to success is to be ready when opportunity comes.
Opportunity doesn't always knock, build a door.
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.
Opportunities lost can never be regained.

The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.
Luck doesn't bring success.
Rather luck is when an opportunity comes and you are prepared for it.
Good luck is when opportunity meets preparation, while bad luck is when lack of preparation meets reality.

The secret to success is the ability to turn every disaster into an opportunity.
Ability is always nothing without opportunity.
You don't fail when you fall, rather you fail when you fall and stay down.

Always turn your obstacles into opportunities and your problems into possibilities.
People always miss opportunities because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
life is all about taking risks.
Never allow fear make you miss an opportunity.
Because life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.

I wish

I wish I could go back to those old days

when I was happy and carefree.

when my gaiety had no limit.

when I was clueless about everything.

When my mother's bossom was my dwelling place.

When my mother's breast was my only liss.

Too bad I can't go back.

Too bad I had to grow up.

Election don dey come.

Our so called leaders are now seen roasting corn with market women.

They are seen in schools receiving lectures with students.

The same students they abandoned four years ago.

They have made to some of us offers that we cannot reject.

The youths don dey collect money.

Dey don forget wetin happen for toll gate.

The government have used us we are now using ourselves for rituals.

The people have become so gullible and myopic that corruption remains unseen.

We are living in a country where leaders are looters.

Where the number of people waiting to loot are more than the people looting already.

We are living in a country where our speed limit is controlled by the number of pot holes in our roads.

Where the common man can no longer afford common things.

Where our hospitals are now dead centers.

A country where lawyers destroy justice.

Where universities destroy knowledge.

Where the press destroy information.

A country where the government destroy the people.

A country where the people destroy the people.

A country where yahoo and money rituals is now the last hope of the common man.

A country where crime is prime.

A country where connection is seen as connection.

A country where religion destroy morals.

A country where banks destroy the economy of the country.

A country where crime is celebrated.

A country where fornication and immorality is seen as catching cruise.

The question is who shall tell the truth?.

It's over mate

get drunk,I wake up,am wasted.
I realized the time I wasted.
I feel like I can't carry the weight anymore.
But I'll be fucked up if you can't be right here.

I know I have fucked up.
You gave me your love but I messed it all up.
I know you are slowly moving on.
I know you have no inch of trust left in you for me.

I promised I will never let go.
But I guess certain things are out of our control.
Getting over you has been the hardest thing I have ever experienced.
I feel the weight falling on me like a pillar.
You have been in my life too long that I can't stand the fear of loosing you.

Though we both cheated.
We had our ups and downs but we fought through them.
We had our worse and good times together.
But I guess the storm has thrown our boat of love overboard.

My friends tell me am a fool to think that your the one for me.
But I guess am just a sucker for love.
I still can't believe that my first love won't be around.
You have been my worst distraction.
My angel sent from above.
My rythm and blues.

All my friends are tired of hearing how I miss you.
But I kinda feel sorry for them because they will never know you the way I do.
You have been with me through thick and thin.
And I feel unlucky to ever loose you.

I know we weren't perfect.
But I have never felt this way for no one.
I just can't imagine how I will survive now that you are gone.
I guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me..
You said forever,but now am all alone.

I still see your face in my dreams.
I can't walk through the places we use to go to.
cause I still fuckin love you.
Even though we are not together anymore.
I still think about you every single minute that passes by.

when I get married and have my kids.
I will tell them about the woman who changed the course of my life.
Who made me believe that love is only disastrous when you fall into the wrong hands.

I guess I have learnt my lesson.
I will keep moving like a rolling stone
Because I can't blame anyone if I fall into the wrong hands again.

I know how time flies only yesterday was a time of our lives.
My friends tell me
I know you love her, but it's over mate.
It doesn't matter let her go.
It's never easy to walk away but let her go
you will be okay.

I know it's gonna hurt for some time.
But don't worry I'll find someone else like you.
Don't forget me I beg.
I'll remember you once said
sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead.
It's over I guess and I have to let you go.
I'll be just fine.

who are friends?

Friends are rare people who ask how you are and then wait to hear the answer.

A friend knows the song in your heart and sings it to you when your memory fails.

True friends are rare to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget.

A real friend is one who walks in when the world walks out.

Don’t make friends who are comfortable to be with.

Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.

Friendship marks a life more deeply than love.

Love risks degenerating into obsession.

Friendship is never anything but sharing.

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain.

It's not something you learn in school.

If you haven't learned the meaning of friendship.

Then you really haven't learned anything.

A true friend never gets in your way unless you are going down.

Anything is possible when you have the right people to support you.

The only way to have a friend is to be one.

Some friends are more loyal than family.

One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.

Never leave a friend behind.

Friends are all we have to get us through this life.

A friend is more than a father, more than a brother.

A travelling companion.

With him you can conquer the impossible.

A good friend is a connection to life.

A tie to the past,a road to the future.

The key to sanity in a totally insane world.

Friendship is the wine of life.

A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flower in your garden.

True friends are rare people who come to find you in the dark and lead you back to the light.

Friendship is not about who you have known the longest.

It's about who walked into your life, and said

"I'm here for you",and proved it".

There are friends, there is family and there are friends who become family.

And then I found out what the secret to life is friends, "Best friends".
