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!!

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
