Everyday gives a new start

I've always viewed life from the sidelines,
Just watching it pass me by,
In the past too afraid to just let go and live,
And lately too tired to try.

I've envied the people around me,
So invested in living each day,
While I spent my time hiding out from the world,
And searching for ways to escape. In love but no leg

For most of my life, I truly believed,
I was here to help somebody else,
But now it's so clear it was just an excuse.
To avoid living life for myself.Love is an action word

It's sad that our lives and the pain we endure,
Can weaken our strength to move on,
But if we get lost in the scars of our past,
Without knowing our lives will be gone.
Advice to my younger self
Its true people are disappointing,
They can turn in the blink of an eye,
But we can't avoid hurting each other,
When we all want a chance at this life. My YouTube page

But there's something I've learned through the wisdom of age,
The truth about all of our lives,
And that is no matter what path we each take,
In the end, we just want to survive. Food: Fried plantain and egg

So the time has now come to conquer your fears,
And to stand up and face a new day,
Let the hurts of your past wash away with your tears,
And stop letting your life slip away.

Dear Nigeria

Letter to My Nigeria
How are you today? I hope this letter meets you well. I am writing this to you from the corner of my bed as I try to express how I am feeling right now at this moment. Firstly, I want you to know that I am truly happy that you are still standing strong despite being the storms and challenges you are facing.       Nigeria Just like every other storm, we become better and stronger when we overcome them. So I ask how long will you continue to face these storms and challenges? How long will your people feel trapped in the system? How long are You going to keep us in the dark with packaged lies? How long do we wait till You are completely free? You have gained Independence for 58 years, yet it feels like there is no true freedom. Freedom feels like an illusion sometimes in this country.    law stories You have the highest population of youths in the continent yet there is no Nigerian dream for them. Over the period of last month, I have met several people in their 30…

   It is a mistake to think the time is going. Time is not going. Time is here until the world ends. It is you that is going. You don’t waste time. Time is infinite. You waste yourself. You are finite. It is you that grow old, time doesn’t. So make better use of it. And one of the worst things to do with time is comparing yourself to others. A cow eats grass and gets fat but if a dog eats grass, it will die. change

Never compare yourself with others. Run your race. What works for one person may not work for you. Focus on the gifts and talents God gave you and don’t be envious of the blessings He gave others. If a rose smells better than tomatoes, It doesn&…
