THE YOUNG BOY @61

The first time I visited the cosmos, of all the houses around, I saw this house of a young man more preferable to the others. He was in his 30s when I first visited, I settled in the house divided by the two rivers because of the abundant potentials he possessed. I thought I had made the right decision; but then, I think I did, right?


In my teenage years, when I needed him to understand my ordeal, he rather was busy with himself, though he gave me GSM, yet it never satisfied me. I thought I was the only child, I later discovered we are 36 with a half brother making 37. Ohhh! My ordeal has not finished. 

Now we are a legion and each of us need his attention, but he would not just lend his attention! We went to school but strikes will not allow us finish the school. We started doing comedies, they said we are lazy, we then started killing ourselves, they call us terrorists. So whose fault is it. Ours or His?


@61 the man borrows to feed us, still we are not fed: he borrows to make life better but still we aren't enjoying. Its not normal that @61 our father still borrows what he can't pay back; is he a boy or a man?


However our father is going the path of death, let's arise and help him out! Of course he can't grow alone. We need must help. The young boy @61 needs to rise!


Nigeria is my country

I love Nigeria

Nigeria must grow

We are the future now!!
