Save The Girl Child…

The Girl Child.
She is out there. She is in acute trauma as she wakes up every day without hope. She lives in abject poverty. You don’t need to search far to find her. She is everywhere around us. She lives in the neigbourhood. She lives in the big city as a domestic house help. Yes, she lives in the rural community where there is neither electricity nor clean drinking water. She is somewhere out there, in the society, disrobed of her worthiness. She is sad, dejected and depressed because she is deprived of a meaningful livelihood. Denied access to a good health care system.

Dear Girl Child…!

Just because you are a girl, the society might try to stifle your dreams and goals. But you’ve got to stand up and say no to any limitations and restrictive mold they may want to force you into.

I know it’s hard to be a girl sometimes but you’ve got to be strong. You’ve got to know that you are created by God to be a voice in this world. To achieve greatness and rule your world. You are born to be a winner. And you’ve got all the tools within you to achieve this height. You are smart. You are intelligent. You are unique. You are exceptional. You are phenomenal.  And you are beautiful. Continue reading

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

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!
