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…

CHIOMA VANESSA : A FASHIONPRENEUR MOTIVATED BY PASSION AND CREATIVITY TO CHART A PATHWAY

Chioma was that child that will send you hiding your clothes and wrappers far away from her reach for the fear that she will tear them in shreds out of the zeal of designing and making clothes. Her first skirt was made at the age of twelve. 
"Nobody taught me to sew, nobody close to me sews, I didn't even know it was a 6 pieces skirt I sewed till I finally went to a fashion school," She says with an air of humour. 


"I also made bags and a pair of slippers from an old Jean material that happened to be my old skirt. My mum marveled at the thought of Jean slippers then but now we see Jean slippers everywhere." She continues. 
Chioma Vanessa who prefers to go by the alias 'God's favourite daughter' is a graduate of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, an entrepreneur and the present CEO of Nessa Design and Stitches (NDS). A young Fashion and Designing outfit that not only makes great outfits but also runs mini fashion tutorials.

SHOT ON TARGET: FISAYO ENJOYS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, FOOTBALL AND PHOTOGRAPHY

I watched Fisayo click away on his camera between flashes of light. It was at an event about promoting Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

I checked some boxes after our interaction. He is industrious, a supporter of social good and very efficient. Call me a stalker of amazing young people and you won't be far from the truth.


Olufisayo Giwa popularly known as African Jaguar and Shot On Target is currently an elite footballer at The Future Academy in Lagos and also a photographer. He is the Creative Director and creative mind behind Shot On Target Pictures.  He practically takes shots on the field and off the field as a photographer.



He identifies as an ardent lover of God with a knack for providing solutions and creating a support system towards developing our country, Nigeria.
