The heart wants what it wants

THE HEART WANTS WHAT IT WANTS

Is time still the old time?
Does the moon still peep and bid the sun bye?
Do buds still push open their orifice and spit flowers?
I count seasons in the sun
You went away for too long
Light left my eyes
What is the pride in sight?

Does the red cock still crow?
Does the breeze still pout his lips and whistle the name of trees?
Do you still hear the sound of the thunder's arching eye brow?
All these i do not know
Do you still hear the footsteps of rain drops on brown roofs?
Or perhaps the clickety-clock symphony of horses hoofs?
You went away for too long
Sound left my ears
What is the pride in hearing?

Does the taste of honey still gladden the tongue?
Do the flowing rush of water still overwhelm the bowels?
Is nectar still the reason why ladybirds dance?
Do houseflies still kiss pollen grains as they carelessly swing their hips?
You went away for too long
Taste left my lips
What is the pride in taste?

Sight was the wild card
Sound was the one who went away
Taste burrowed into the soil
Heart's briefcase toppled her feet;
She fell and missed her way
So she vowed to stay
She has no choice
Wanting what she wants
You may travel far and long
In rib's cage she stays
Awaiting your returning day.

WHY I WON'T BE BUYING ANYTHING AGAIN FOR A LIFETIME

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…

NEXT BIG THING: CREATING A NEW WORLD THROUGH MY LENS - KINGSLEY AGORUA

Jim Rohn had his opinion that "If you don't like where you, change it. You are not a tree." Kingsley Agorua had looked around where he found himself and decided to change it to suit his taste through his lens.

My earliest contact with Kingsley should have been in 2012 when I was a student at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri. I spotted him at an event on campus where he was taking photographs.

Little did I know that I would bump into him again at my faculty - The School of Health as a student. I was curious as to what a photographer was doing in my faculty during lecture period. Time will reveal that he was a student too who was madly in love with his camera. This was all before the advent of traditional or nearly compulsory bridal showers, baby showers and pre-wedding shoots in the Nigerian Creative Industry.


Kingsley Agorua is a cinematographer with years of experience from Oguta in Imo state. He studied Dental Technology at the Federal University of Techno…

Valentine for all times

"He just had to go", I yelled inside of me. Dele was too bossy and proud,the rest of the staff looked up to me to ensure he was fired. All I had to do was pull the manager into my seductive web and by morning, Dele would get his termination letter. Anyone who stood in my way always got burnt, I loved to revenge passionately and Dele was certainly not a sacred cow.

The subsequent monday was my birthday, I was hoping there would be a suprise cake or party for me but no soul even wished me a happy birthday. Work went on as every other normal day.
I bent to open my drawer then I saw a parcel with a note attached to it:

I boss you because I want you to be the boss
I have admired you since the day I knew you
Work has to get better but don't ever try to change you.
Lots of love
Dele.

I wept like a baby, that was the only gift I got that day.
Dele was not sacked and they are now proud parents of three kids.

Don't you just love to love? #winks.
Love everyone, everyday!
Happy…
