GUEST POST: DESCEND O' COMTRAITORS — KINGDAVID CHINAEKE OFUNNE



Descend O Comtraitors!

Descend o comtraitors, is the call to action

Corruption is dispensed in exponential rations

The cost of silence paid with bags of rice and salt

Our mothers and fathers bought, even the youth, their voices shut

A jewel stained, no amount of washing, cleaning

Purity is gone, not even prayers can restore healing

2019 is fast approaching, elders humbled

Remember yesterday when they left you manacled

It's always the same story, no difference

A generation almost extinct, power grabbing, a bad influence

Failed promises cancel one another

Poverty at its peak, election is closed, absence of law and order

It's the time to change history not become one

Don't give us guns this season, give us funds we no longer want to be a pun

We are Kings and queens, royalty is in our blood

We can rule as well and even better, it's time we were treated even, everything else is odd



Descend o comtraitors, it's time to answer the youthful call

The eagle indeed has landed, now even the battle horses fall

Instead of oil, blood is spilling

Herdsmen from the north on a free ride killing

Unemployed youths useful as thugs for hire

Our girls abducted and sold to the most armed buyer

Our heroes past are our today's villains


Yesterday's compatriots now traitors today, camouflaged as politicians

The land is no more green with vegetation but greed

Group of civilians with an unsatisfactory thirst for power, assassins creed

It's mission impossible this 2019, no more electoral violence

Enough is enough, we refuse to stay chained in silence

It's a revolution, not of arms nor ammunition

But free and fair transition written in the constitution

The pyramid of our political values are upside down

So it's time for a new head to wear the crown

We don't need a replay, we deserve a fast track

It's time to rise up as catalysts and hit corruption at the core, till it cracks

Descend o comtraitors, Nigeria's call so it's time to obey

So true compatriots may arise and save the day.



The Pride of the Wild

In the beginning, we sat listening to the sounds of beating hearts,

Eyes dancing to the rhythm, mimicking steps of ebony arts,

From far and nigh, over and beyond the seas, they came,

Masquerading as allies, their mission to maim, tame and reclaim.

Sculpted and shaped, the African Pride,

Never one to be ashamed, cower or hide in natures wild,

With the stars and the moon as witnesses,

The earth rumbles and trembles for she exhibits no mercies.

Like a preacher delivering a rapturous sermon with salted verses,

Feet as strong as mahogany, with stylish steps she renders melodious lessons,

But alas tis dawn, the night was once beautiful,

Until morning arrived with strangers yellow as the sun yet more scorching taking her for a fool.


Her pride they stole, her tribes disrobed,

Over and over she is ravaged and stripped of gold,

Broke nay not Broken, her once young flesh grows old as she is taken from her home,

Until nought is left in her but savage, sweats and bone.

In the beginning, she was sold for powder and glass,

Now far away an echo is heard as she returns with power and class,

At dusk a maiden at dawn a lady

She returns as the pride and joy of many.

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.
