To be in Love

To be in love with someone, you must be willing to give something you can never take back… when in love, you give bits and pieces of yourself away …and you become somewhat, a new person. When two people are in love, they do it together, loose the bits and pieces together, and thus can become one…but when the love is one sided, as one becomes a lighter version of himself or herself, the other becomes heavy, full of himself or herself…
Is this true????

Camp Me

Its bn 8 years and she seems to have ended in the same mess. For 8 years, she hasn’t been interested in those who were interested in her…and those she was interested in had no interest in her as well… was she over reaching?… what was it?… but that wasn’t her biggest worry. In life, sometimes, there are those we ‘click ‘with….sometimes we meet guys we like but realise its not just about the like where you want to date them like but generally, u like them ….the problem is when you were honest in the beginning and realised there was nothing there for you and so you moved on…but since you liked the person’s personality, you decided to maintain a friendship, they think … ooohhh…the girl has fallen for me….she may be inexperienced in relationships, sex and she may be a child or kiddie, as well y’all like to refer to her as, but friendship is important to her…and no, she doesn’t go to bed thinking about you, or  dream about you or wake up thinking about you…..its mere friendship…she doesn’t know how she got herself into another like this…but now, she’ll be sure to stay out of its path…there’s some people you meet and ‘WO p3 )mo  as3m ‘…. let’s pray they learn to appreciate genuine friendship…

Who has the cure?

Today i stepped and in town and i was appalled at the site. My beloved Ghanaians, how did we get here??? There used to be a few particles here and there but this refuse dump we call a city….smh…..
Does everyone drop everything these days?
Who do u want to clean it up?..the government??… could by any chance refer to the government by name?.. please do tell me, cos i  would like to look for him/her to ask a few questions… is everyone undisciplined in this country?…
I wish i could say different of my generation but …no…as shs and tertiary students and grads, we litter more than anything and say silly things like ‘ if i don’t litter, how else will others get jobs as cleaners?’ Such shallow minds!!!!

Our Actions

We can tell a lot about a person mostly by looking at what they are doing..we may tell it otherwise but our actions easily give us away.
But the question is why do we lie?… why not just call it as it is?
Why wait for our actions to give up the answers shamefully?…
We live in a world full of humans.. but you already know that…as human beings , we have survival instincts..this makes man live in a Charles Darwin world – only the fittest survive. The weak get trampled on by the strong. Nobody wants to be weak, we all want to be strong, to survive the world. So, we decorate ourselves like war heroes and show the world , “look how strong I am”…it must be some kind of high to see that look in their eyes…the look that tells you, ‘mmm, he’s got what I want.. or.. she has it all..’ but  Honey, aren’t you tired of hiding?…
When at the end of the day you stare at the mirror and dont recognise the image in there…it’s about time, they’ll prey, hunt you but I can promise you this, you can fight back…you’re strong enough.. I can’t promise it’ll be easy tho..

Our True Self

Many of us think we are pretty well informed on who we are but then…the one thing happens and we realise , we have no idea who we are?… When we are faced with this question, ‘ who are you?’, what’s it like?… does the answer come straight to mind or do you have to think about it, trying to figure out what to say…
Its no news not to know who we are after school… its the beginning of a new era…things will never be the same…you are not the same..don’t be in a rush to meet ‘you’…so the world can’t wait to but it’d rather wait a little longer than meet a fake… the thing about finding our true self is that, we do so by living, taking risks, daring to be different. The new experiences push us to know just who we are under the identity we live by today…enjoy the journey to meeting ‘YOU’…

Aftermath

It was a lovely Friday, a holiday as I recall when they first came in to the school. Calling friends to find out what halls they were in and room numbers… their’s was Queens Room 13… they made it. . . .as they went along, they made friends , lost some of them…some graduated and they moved away. They continued to make friends and loose some..they were told it was a part of the growing process.. it was fun, having all of them around , but they barely cherished the memories.. that was because they always knew they’d see their friends in class , at church, or in their hostels…then all too soon, they were writing their very last papers…the 4 year journey had come to an end already… friends left for their various homes and now, there’s that still small voice, the one they can never shake ‘ when next will we see our friends again?’ …. time to reminisce …time to lie in bed and smile for no reason…oh wait…there is a reason: we remembered… the pain, the tears, laughs echoing through our minds….we have lived ….and we have lost…but it’s the beginning of something new…let’s embrace it with no regrets…
