I put up happy faces and bright smiles
And they are all just pushing you even further away
It’s gotten more difficult too because of the crowd I now find myself
And I don’t know any more how to get to you

And the LORD replied, “If I find fifty righteous people in Sodom, I will spare the entire city for their sake.” Finally, Abraham said, “Lord, please don’t be angry with me if I speak one more time. Suppose only ten are found there?” And the LORD replied, “Then I will not destroy it for the sake of the ten.” … More Pray for Nigeria
“Thank you for the asking my opinion in this very difficult situation. I know how difficult this must be for you and your family”, Mr. Martins finally said. “However, I wish to remain to you as I was before this incident. You see, I am truly in love with your daughter and for some reason, I had thought this was a mutual feeling”, he looked at Nifemi who wouldn’t look at him as he spoke. “Regardless of the situation, if she would admit that she made a mistake and renounce the school boy, I will marry her nonetheless – with your permission and blessing, sir”, he bowed his head to Nifemi’s father. “I have full faith that your capabilities and love for your family is very paramount to you but once again, I ask for your permission to take full responsibility for her and the baby. After the baby is born, depending on what she chooses to do, I will sponsor her tertiary education or secure a decent job for her in a reputable organization. I believe entrusting her safe delivery and well-being into the hands of a small boy might not be the best idea. Just like you sir, I want what’s best for Nifemi in this situation and although I am in support of any punishment you wish to give her, I will humbly request sir, that you let me bear the shame and cost of this. However, if the boy wishes to have his child after delivery – ” … More Story telling: Series 5
“I’m sorry, máámì. Please, I am sorry”, Nifemi yelped frantically before sobbing uncontrollably. Her face flushed immediately. Never had her mother been so upset with her, let alone lay hands on her. Nifemi held her head to the ground, preventing her face from another slap. No one did or said anything in resistance to her mother’s sudden outburst. Mama Savage would have intervened but she understood her daughter’s pain. She had to allow her let it out.
“You should be”, Nifemi’s mother yelled at her. “You shameless girl. You could have at least thought of Mr. Martins. He is doing so much for you but no, you just had to -”. Before her palm could land another resounding slap on Nifemi’s back, Mr Martins spoke loudly in Nifemi’s defense. The loud sound of thunder that reverberated throughout the house at that instance told Nifemi what the slap would have felt like if it had landed on her. … More Story telling: Series 3
I know I once said I don’t mind being friends with an ex and maybe I wasn’t thinking with the possibility that the other person might be a psycho. Or maybe not a psycho, maybe just a heartbroken person who’s out to take vengeance on you or deliberately hurt you in return. Really, no matter how seemingly nice someone is, there’s no telling how they can be when a lovely relationship turns soar, or worse, when there’s a breakup. Thinking of it now, I wouldn’t blame some people who would rather keep certain information to themselves till marriage, when they are sure there’s some sort of security eventually. … More Cruel Things People Say During a Breakup
Have you ever loved someone or you hang out together most of the time with them, you assume they have the same feelings for you without defining your relationship only to find out they are actually in love with some other person and not you?
Urgh! Typical case of friend zoning. It’s a situation in which one member of a friendship wishes to enter into a romantic or sexual relationship, while the other does not. It is generally considered to be an undesirable or dreaded situation by the lovelorn person. If a desired party does not return or respond affirmatively to the advances or affection of the desiring party, but continues to participate in the friendship in a platonic way, it is sometimes described as friend-zoning. … More Friend Zone
I’d like to believe the game of love is for adults. Pardon me for calling it a game but life itself is a race, isn’t it? And racing is a sport, a game. So in this game of love, there ought to be 2 adults – loving me, loving you – only 2. Where you have Titi loving Tayo, and Tayo loving Tolu, who’s going to love Titi?

I saw the below link story in the papers just the next day from my previous post and I thought I needed to share it. However, I have been pretty occupied lately so forgive me it’s coming a bit behind schedule.
Man murders wife’s lover on their matrimonial bed.
Seriously, guys when I hear of this sort of stories, it really does reiterate my cry for love in a marriage. And really, if it’s not working anymore, be courageous enough to save everyone the stress and address the issues. If it so happens to lead to a divorce, then I suppose it’s better and more respectable that way than become a mockery like this.
Be a respectable and responsible adult.

Nigeria, under Change dispensation, has been experiencing a lot of “changes” which aren’t favorable to the people but some of us choose to stand by our decision. Believing that the change we want though might not be easy but we trust that the government is on the right track to getting us back where we need to be. Having said that, while my salary hasn’t increased and thousands of people are still losing their jobs across organizations, how does the government expect us to keep up with the news delivered by the Minister of petroleum. On the 11th of May, Mr. Ibe Kachikwu announced the deregulation of the downstream sector of the petroleum industry, effectively ending fuel subsidy which leaves us now with a new price for petrol at N145 per litre. That’s over 65% increase. Chai!
Not that we haven’t suffered the adverse effects leading to this eventual situation but if we must suffer any further, shouldn’t there be an alignment with the masses? Shouldn’t there be a consideration for the masses out of jobs? Or the civil servants whose minimum wage can’t afford a bag of rice or put into consideration the new price of the now overrated tomato? (Breathing out)
The Nigeria Labour Congress has now insisted on a nationwide indefinite strike which commenced today based on a deadlock meeting with the Federal Government of Nigeria. Whether I’m staying at home indefinitely or not, it doesn’t alleviate the sufferings we are facing in Nigeria or take away the fact that I have been suffering to get fuel at even more outrageous prices than N145 in the past 6 months. Neither does it imply that my salary will be increased by my organization to suit the increased fuel price or the overrated tomato price. So biko, both NLC and Federal Government, is anyone exactly fighting for the benefit of the people? Where was NLC when people were risking their lives and suffering to buy fuel in the tanks of their generators, risking lives and properties? I just want to plead the cause of the masses so that both NLC and Federal Government arise to their responsibilities, align with Nigerians and let us understand what is happening so we can all buy into the idea of change that you sold so beautifully to us. Because if the government isn’t going to help me alleviate my issues and NLC is not exactly being considerate, how do we achieve zero corruption in our country?
Just my thoughts.
