War And Peace….!

I woke up today reading different versions and analysis with regards to the spate of killings in our world and especially this murderous lunacy of yesterday.

It’s quite frightening. Disheartening too, with trails of excruciating pains to the families caught up in these unfortunate incidences. No doubt, we live in uncertain times and the World seems askew. Man’s invention has become a weapon of mass destruction. Nothing is in sync anymore. I’ve read different views, opinions, and possible solutions to abate these ugly incidents happening around the globe. These ungodly acts instill fear into us and most people become too scared, afraid and frustrated… Not knowing who’s to be hit next. Some become too edgy and desperate for solutions. Some further wear a coat of hate towards others different from them. Towards humanity.  Continue reading

The Daily Prompt – Coincidence!

And the lady died.

Could it be a strange coincidence that she died on her birthday? I am yet to understand this phenomenon which happens occasionally in the passage of time.

Not just that she died. She died under very strange circumstances. She was a sister to a friend. A tear dropped from my eyes as I read her obituary on my Facebook Newsfeed three days ago. Continue reading

The Daily Prompt – Sympathy!

I remembered when I lost my father some years ago, expressions of sympathy flooded from across the globe by people who are connected to my family one way or another. Friends and family members and even strangers who heard about his demise wanted to reach out to us with their compassion. Some, who have experienced the death of a loved one empathized with us and shared their experiences. Continue reading

The Exit Of A Music Icon…!

Farewell to Donald Ray Williams.  

And we miss a legend of country music. He bowed to death on September 8, 2017, in Mobile, Alabama due to emphysema at age 78. 

You were among the pioneers of good country music.

Thank you for the inspiring songs. Thank you for the great music.

Listen to the Radio! My Best Friend. I Believe…. Were among the tracks I really enjoyed.

The Daily Prompt – Finite!

It is fulfilling to discover one’s purpose in life. 

Always remember the finite human life span. Therefore, we should strive to be well guided so that we make the right decisions and choices in life.

The purpose driven life, how fulfilling to discover it!  There are people who are already living their purpose in life. While there are others who are still groping in the dark, trying to find their bearing in the scheme of things. Nothing gives joy and fulfillment, a sense of completeness to know you are walking the right path of your existence. It gives a great feeling but sadly, not everyone can boast of this. Not everyone is living their purpose in life. Continue reading

What’s On My Mind? Ha, Facebook!

Okay, I’ll share it since you asked. 

I am sitting down here and sipping my Earl Grey Tea, having woken up early to complete a draft I’m working on.

And as I looked through the window, behold a beautiful panorama stretched out before me. Wow! The world is beautiful indeed. So beautiful despite the challenges and the murky darkness that surrounds it.

As I looked deeper into the horizon, everything looked so perfect, so peaceful from a distance. Everything appeared amazing from far away.

But as I took yet another sip from my white tea cup, I pondered on the negativity all over the globe. I pondered on the many challenges in this world. I pondered on myself, and the rest people out there. I pondered on the atrocities of our leaderships and the pains they unleash on the defenseless masses. Oh, how the common man bears the brute of our incompetent and corrupt leaders. Oh, how the value of human life has reduced so drastically in our society. And I hear echoes of Run, Run, there is fire on the mountain.

This wild fire is spreading fast. This fire must be quenched. But who will be the Fire-Man?

And I concluded thus: that the dirty details of life seem almost invisible and even non-existent from afar.

I am still wondering how everything seems perfect whereas the world is engulfed in deep bitterness, anguish, excruciating pain, violence, and evil.

From here, I could barely hear the noise of this amplified animosity, this expanding hatred that is festering among humans.

And that is only because I am right here, inside, which appears cozy. I am right here, inside, which exudes warmth.

But sadly the outside is filled with potholes and fierce demons. Angry lions parading and looking for naive and easy preys and who to devour. Humans looking for who to bludgeon to death… Who to stab next.

The world is beautiful indeed but perforated with varying seeds of discords, evil manipulations, and deep rooted animosity.

The world is sick and in acute pain.

And this wicked world is in dire need of an urgent surgery to bring her back to her default state, perhaps.

And just now, I sipped the last drop of my Earl Grey Tea, from my white tea cup, a gift from Nkechi, my dear cousin.

 

Peace and Love!
