Original Song - Free

I wrote this song recently, decided to title it Free. I am still looking for a singer who will add melody to it and use it to bless humanity. If you have concrete ideas, please send an email.



Inspiration 
This is the summary of my life, I have a very graphic imagination and as such, ghosts from my past still come to haunt me and I struggled for years because I would be caught in the snare every single time. But when I surrendered to His Love, I have the strength to withstand and say no. Moreover, He took away the craving for sin and it became much easier to withstand the fiery darts in my mind. The renewal process of the mind is not an easy journey, since I didn't put the junks in my mind in one day, it will take much more time to get rid of the junk.



FREE
I've got flashbacks
Seeing faces I thought I'd escaped from
Why this lingering?
Like a stalking shadow
Can I ever be free?

In the deepest part of memory bank
In the farthest part of memory lane
There all the pain I kept
But like the smoke in life
It found a way back to haunt me
Can I ever be free?

Searching far and wide
For quick-fixes to these ghosts
But realized I have been set free
I just didn’t know it
I gave up my searching
And accepted His Love

Now I'm free (till fade)

Forgiveness 2.0 – Can you go back?

Forgiveness, just like Love, has definitions to varying degrees or like an onion—layers. I always thought I had the forgiveness thing locked down, yeah right! Just like the proverbial out of the blue, it hit me that I had just erased that part from memory and decided the type of forgiveness I wanted to extend. I found out that I couldn’t (or at least that’s what I had subconsciously agreed) go back if I had the chance. On my way home, it became evident that this sealed can of worms had been in the basement and it is already stinking. It took an interviewer’s probing questions for me to shed light on that chapter in my life’s story. Forgiveness is absolute, but just like everything else, we make it relative and as such varying standards abound. This means what I call forgiveness may not cut it for someone else. While my version of forgiveness may be shallow and warped, yours may be brutally honest. Ultimately, we are responsible for our versions of forgiveness, while it is in our best

LIF101 - POST NO BILL

I want to tell you a story, and in the next couple of minutes, I would appreciate if you could loan me your undivided attention. I promise to return it with interest; A child was born in an urban area in the heart of Lagos state almost 3 decades ago, attended about 5 primary schools, finally obtained a first school leaving certificate, from there on to just 1 secondary school, being a very brilliant and apt student, he obtained the necessary 5 O'Level credits in senior school certificate exams and got an average score in the university and tertiary matriculations exam. He got admitted to study Physics because they just had to put him somewhere because he knows somebody who knows somebody. Even though in his heart, he wanted to study Electronics and Computer Engineering because that's where his strength is, mechanization and electronics. The result? Instead of the standard 4 years, he ended up spending 8 years and still did not graduate. For those wondering how come, here

LIFE 101

Most of the years we spend within the four walls of the school environment were spent learning theories of how things work. How to analyze, solve problems given a few clues [symptoms], calculate, and read. However, when we finally leave the confines of those walls; we discover that we have spend one-third of our lives not preparing for the present simply because the school curriculum does not make provision for people-skills, time-management, emotional intelligence, entrepreneurship, financial intelligence, et al. We start school afresh once we step into the real world and the courses are very systematic because we take the examinations first, then the lesson; the direct opposite of the school we have been used to. Life is more that just a set of classes and some library of books, far bigger than what we have been made to believe. Great men/women of the world had just one thing in common; we never hear of their academic excellence- rather, we hear of what they did outside the w
