BORN BRAVE

Eventually, I gathered courage to read this book last night and guess what, I sobbed all night. Sleeping was far from fetched but God ultimately gave me sleep.

Even with that, I woke up this morning to this hallucination called “Reality”. Truly, this life is not our own. For all the things we have to be thankful for, good health should be one of them because it’s key.

And like Herophilus stated, when “Health” is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless and intelligence cannot be applied. Even family becomes helpless.

The family did all they could, Nicole on the other hand fought all she could, even her faith in God was tested at every step of her treatment, so much that, she learned to give thanks for both the good and odd moments. Her story is proof that, God is indeed, the final say.

Trust me if I say this, Nicole shouldn’t have died after all she’s been through. The least compensation she could have gotten was the gift of life (a second chance to life). But like the book of Proverbs rightly puts it, man proposes but God disposes.

God did what He thought was right, we can only be thankful. We thank God for her 14years of life and pray He keeps us (the living) in good health always.

Lesson learned: Anytime you pray, ask for forgiveness of sin and also for a good health. For there’s more to life than we know.

Cherry-Pick

I never had support

but I learned to support myself and others

I have a lot going against me

but I still strive to reach out to others, regardless

 

I have plenty excuses to give

but again,

I choose not to use any of them

Do you know why?

I will tell you

 

Because I differ to choose “Humanity” over “Greed”

Wanna know what describes me?

Well, this is what defines me as a person – Humanity

 

What is your cherry-pick?

 

Please share your cherry-pick in the comment box below. Also let me know what you think about this write-up, thanks.

MAYBE

I wonder why I can’t find my feet when I thought they are firm enough

I wonder why I can’t run fast in my dreams

I wonder why I feel short when I know my ideas are tall

 

Still, I wonder why I can’t find my voice in my hallucination

when I thought I did scream loud enough

Well, I guess if I don’t fail, I wouldn’t need grace

 

Again, I wonder why they say hate your brother

and hide the gold

I guess if we knew tomorrow, we wouldn’t need assurance

Maybe I don’t know

Yeah, maybe I don’t know

But maybe, that’s okay.

 

All these brouhaha, I just can’t explain

But maybe that’s okay

Maybe that’s okay.

APHORISM

When there’s no enemy within,

the enemies outside cannot harm you

And if you close your eyes on facts,

chances are,

you either learn through accidents

or live with lies

For you learn how to cut down trees

by cutting them down

Aphorism!

PATRICK STORIES

https://patrickrealstories.files.wordpress.comI look at successful billionaires and always ask this question, what did they do different?
How did they achieve this much success and money? People usually say “It all destiny, they were lucky”. I could take any answer for my questions, but not when destiny is involved.

I am a strong believer that everyone makes their own destiny, from a beggar on the street to the president of a country. Everyone sees the end result, but no one sees the effort that has gone behind that success.

Did these successful people had it easy?

Nope I don’t think so. So what it is that differentiate them from the rest of us?

Also, what is it that we can do to at least start to be like them?

ONLY BIRTH

Today would have been your 34th birthday. Surely, I would have buzz you and seek redress for all the past goodies (gist), one that you called “The Annually Buzz”. Obviously, this would have tinkled your hidden feminine voice that says, “Rita only calls on my birthdays”, you would whisper it through the phone reluctantly.

But today looks Lackluster, the kind that is as a result of death. Also the kind that doesn’t allow the living to commune with the dead. This pace doesn’t appear pleasant but what can we do? What can we do to restore this lost? Nothing, absolutely, nothing!

It’s still your day anyway, boss it up wherever you may be, as we keep memories in distance unseen. And as we progress in life, may we find courage to muster your demise. Happy birthday, Sid.
