Reconsidering
She was rather concerned
About what the risks were

And how selfish it seemed

Now having second thoughts

Being hopeful was one thing

But then reality a whole other

While questions were raised

That fed multiple insecurities

Awake at two in the morning

Garroted by various scenarios

Seeking to create controversy

Or shed light on her ignorance

The situation was not perfect

Just like any other peculiarity

Still it wasn’t as highly toxic

According to her measurements

Chances were that eventually

All her fears were unfounded

And that every supposition

Was a result of over thinking

She tried to pay keen attention

In case it was actually her intuition

Present and being practical

In facing the particular situation

With all that would be changed

The issues remained the same

She lay awake alone reconsidering

On just one too many what ifs

THE REALITY LATELY

Flos Place 7

Feels like tears in the eyes now

But choosing not to cry out loud
Inspirations and musing gone sour
I apologize for being torn

Looking at the day’s past
Fears still holding my last laugh
Should I quit or head for the next lap
I apologize for falling into rhetoric’s trap

I would be smiling
If I did not become too desperate

I would choose to respect the norm
If the dreams stayed small

I heard someone say
“When fighting the fight of your destiny It’s no time to be nice
But time to be right.”

After all said and done
I heard that salient voice ask;
Can you handle, fame, name and the blame ?

With a voice almost silent
I said “YES”

With a big smile on my face

“Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that’s the inheritor of our fear. Let him not love the earth too deeply. Let him not laugh too gladly when the water runs through his fingers, nor stand too silent when the setting sun makes red the veld with fire. Let him not be too moved when the birds of his land are singing. Nor give too much of his heart to a mountain or a valley. For fear will rob him if he gives too much.”

Things to Do to Get You Out of Your Bed on Monday Mornings

Making Monday Mornings Sane Again
Great post from Kally Tay.

If Garfield has magic powers, I’m pretty sure he will make Monday’s disappear and of course, a mountain of endless lasagne he can eat. There are some Mondays that you’ll look forward waking up to and there are Mondays that you just want your bed to swallow you in whole. Even when I’m in a job I love, there are Mondays I wish it was Fridays. So these are the things I will do to motivate myself to hop (if not, at least crawl) out of my cosy bed.

Happy Songs

I don’t know about you but music can always make or break my mood. Well, ask the well-renowned composer, Hans Zimmer. He has composed music for more than 150 movies since 1980. The right tune for the right moment will create the right mood. So go for happy songs the moment you hit the showers, dance or sing or…

FEMI FANI KAYODE {FFK} SPEAKS! 2 #CELONARANTS!!

“No people and no part of a people shall be held against its will in a political association that it does not want.”
Ludwig von Mises, Nation, State, and Economy: Contributions to the Politics and History of Our Time

After the British Government represented by its ambassador to Nigeria, made a statement where they said ‘They’ll not allow Nigeria to divide under their watch’; Femi Fani–Kayode, the former director of media and publicity to former President Goodluck Jonathan, wrote:

…Meanwhile, just as their counterparts are doing in Nigeria, the racial integrationists, the champions of globalization, the apostles of a new world order and the advocates of mass migration continue to test the waters by attempting to place obstacles in the path of the true believers and ethnic nationalists all over the world. For example Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, suggested that this was not the time to discuss the issue of a new referendum for Scottish independence just two weeks ago.

Thankfully Alex Salmon, the former leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, responded to her in an eloquent manner by assuring her that if she continued talking that way her words and attitude would actually guarantee Scottish independence rather than prevent it. His warning is appropriate and timely. Again just last week, the President of the European Commission, Jeanne Claude Junker, who is one of the world’s most rabid and diehard integrationists and globalists, said that President Donald Trump’s stated desire to see “more Brexits” and to “witness more countries leave the European Union” was “provocative and inappropriate” and that in retaliation the European Union may consider calling on states like Ohio and Texas to secede from the United States of America.

Nigel Farage MEP, the former leader of the British United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) and one of the most formidable and respected nationalists in the world today, jumped into the ring the following day with a swift and devastating response. He said that Junkers’ words were inappropriate and misplaced because the United States of America came together as a consequence of consensus whilst the European Union was brought together by fiat and compulsion. He also made the point that, unlike America, which is a transparent and functional democracy, the European Union is run by a group of faceless and unelected bureaucrats and officials at the European Commission in Brussels. Farage is absolutely right. His was indeed a beautiful response.

Both Salmon and Farage have spoken the minds of millions of people all over the world including Nigeria. The bottom line is that you cannot compel a people to remain part of any nation unless they choose to be in that nation and you cannot deny them the right of self-determination and the freedom of choice and association. Thankfully that message is spreading. The forces of integration and globalisation are clearly on the ropes in today’s fast-changing world just as they are in Nigeria.

Nothing can stop the quest for self-determination or the glorious march of the ethnic nationalists. A couple of weeks ago in an essay titled “The Hausa Fulani, The Yoruba and The Slaughter in Ile-Ife” (Part 2) yours truly wrote the following: “The right to take pride in our ethnicity and invoke the principle of self-determination cannot be denied. We reject the concept of globalisation and the enthronement of a new world order. We reject the concept of an artificial, man-made, multi-cultural, multi-religious, mongrel mega-nation that is made up of ethnic and religious incompatibles. We reject the notion that we must bury our ethnicity, forget our differences, arrest our development, discard our values and enthrone the idea of a strange and complicated hybrid nation where we are expected to live with and accommodate those that hate our faith, despise our people, scorn our values and that rape, maim and kill our loved ones and compatriots in the name of religion, conquest, land, cows and cattle.

The truth is that no force in hell or on earth can stop the rise and establishment of the sovereign state of Biafra, Oduduwa or any other ethnic nation that will one day be carved out of what is presently known as Nigeria”. I believe that these words are relevant and prophetic. Those that do not see the wisdom in restructuring Nigeria have guaranteed her future dissolution. Yet sadly this is a fact that appears to be completely lost on both the British and French Ambassadors given their simplistic and asinine contributions to what is essentially a very complicated, multi-layered, multifaceted, problematic, volatile and dangerous long-standing debate which borders on the nationality question in Nigeria. May the counsel of the Lord stand in our nation and may His name be glorified. (TO BE CONTINUED).
