Frail Not Hail Nation

Peace derailed

from layer to layer

beneath the corrupt hawk lies

living flamboyantly

like there’s no tomorrow.

Laws bastardized

injustice to the poor

the pretentious snake looking for prey

the strong are growing frail

insecurity reigning, smiles fading.

 Follow not

the ways of the careless jug head

stand firm, wail until you are heard.

write, until the books are full

knock, until the doors are open.

Peace be recovered

Lawlessness redefined

Follow the path to a great nation.

The post is in response to the daily prompt. Frail.

3-day-quote-challenge

3.Nominate 3 bloggers each day.

Hi everyone, In regards to the three day quote challenge put forward by my friend Miraclegirlblog. Here comes the quote for Day 2 quote challenge.

A Quote by William Shakespeare

“A  friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts that you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow”

Good friends are hard to come by, if you have one as described by William Shakespeare- never let him or her leave, they are rare gems. They stand by you through thick and thin. If you don’t have one keep searching, don’t surround yourself with bad people all in the name of having a friend, it’s sure better to have none than having one bad friend.

A second Quote by Mark Twain

mark-twain

“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything”

Tell the truth and be set free, telling lies gives one headache because you will have to keep trying to remember what you told the last time, at the end of it all you tell people different people different tales of same story just because you couldn’t remember what you told them previously.

A Third Quote by Mother Teresa

Mother-Teresa

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love”

Doing great things is everyone’s desire, to be well known and be able to make big impart on our community or generation, but it’s not for all, some can do small things with great love which will live marks of great love behind. Spread the love!

There’s no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.

We all have our goals and desires, who doesn’t? Not me anyways.Strive hard, don’t stop, keep moving, you will always meet tough heartbreaking challenges along the way, but never give up, you will get there.

Stop Running From Your Shadow

In response to this week’s discover challenge –  I would like to share with others a piece of advice I received from someone back in high school.

“Stop running from your shadow”. She called me alone to say just that short sentence to me which I pondered on for a pretty long time without actually accepting the truth behind it.

Back in high school I was someone I would say was POPULAR without a particular reason, I just didn’t get it, I never understood the logic behind my popularity. I was a very simple, level headed lady in school, I loved to be alone but unfortunately for me people loved me, they wanted to be friends with me, they wanted me to lead them, guess what I hated all these with a passion 😏, I felt it was too much of a burden for me to carry, all I wanted was my peace, just a few friends, study and go home to my best friend (Television).

It was that way for me all through my years of studying, and until I got my first job, it was still staring right into my face, people wanted to be like me, listen to me, do as I do, seriously I never understood it. Until I met someone else again who told me to just be myself and face my fears. I sat myself down to review the path of life I had lived and was living, I realized that I had been lucky, I would have lost a lot due to my insecurity and shadow fear 😊😊

Now I can face my fears, I can face responsibilities, I realized I didn’t need to be best of friends with all these people but to be attentive to their feelings, now I talk to them, I listen, I don’t mind if they wish to do as I do, I love making people smile. My colleagues love to dress the way I dress, up to my hairstyle, and really I have more confidence now, I encourage them, I give them tips on dating and fashion, I have also learnt not to take things personally due to my emotions. The benefit of all this is that it has opened doors of opportunities for me. My accepting my shadow has promoted me to an upstanding individual. I’m blessed that it wasn’t too late for me to come to terms with it.

My piece of advice based on my pervious experience is to never run from your shadow.

Stylish Men Get All The Beautiful Ladies

Guys try to dress stylishly for a number of reasons…One of which is to impress women.Some guys said they dress to impress their colleagues, some care less about what they wear, a few of them appeared to look stylish to maintain their company brand name, while a greater number of them said they dress well to impress as well as attract beautiful women!

Yes it’s true…. Every woman has a taste in what she likes seeing guys wear. They want men that understand what looking good means, one that takes care of himself. Definitely a man that knows good quality body spray….It’s important for all men especially for those that leave home without having a shower.

Stylish- Men- Get -All- the- Beautiful- Ladies

Clothes, Fashion, Style- Is usually touted as something that women care about, style for men make up a lot of unspoken cues when they meet people.

I rallied up 6 of my girlfriends, single and married, I asked them what their thoughts were about ‘what men wear,’ and I was able to get this from them.

Lola (Writer): I love seeing men in T-shirts on not too baggy blue jeans. Specifically, it could also be a long sleeve shirt but must be designed by Hawes and Curtis.

stylish-men-shoes

Samantha (Lawyer): I want men that dress like men because it makes a statement, a man in well tailored suit, classy tie to go with it, a killer pair of Chelsea shoes and nice body cologne is on point for me.

Kimberly (Business Merchant): “I don’t like my husband’s taste of wears; I’m considering doing him a complete makeover. I love men that dress like movie stars”.

Tiffany (Financial Adviser):  I date only men with good style…smelly, dirty guys are top of my list of ‘turn off’. I would love what a man wears provided that it’s clean, smells nice and has got style written all over like a brand name.

Belinda (Model): I love dudes in slim fitted jeans and T-shirts, there’s just something sexy and classy about it that turns me on…all topped up with Jean Paul Gaultier Cologne.”

For me, it’s purely a medium of self expression. It’s a way to subtly signal where they fit in.

The Storm Is Over Now

Storm raged my inner being

almost wrenched out my heart

with fierce agony, I walked down the streets

dogs barking at me

flies created settlement in my filthy hair

I staggered around dragging my feet

nowhere to go

while contemplating suicide

the lord appeared

he wiped away my tears

held me in his arms

fed me

clothed me

he  shamed the demons

and set me free

here I am today, the storm is over

I can see the light now as heaven has smiled down on me.

 

I have always loved this song written and produced by R. Kelly, it was released back then in year 2000. Please enjoy it as much as I do. It’s a music that will take you back memory lane, ginger your spirit, revive your inner mind, set you on the motion path of inspiration to determination, to survive and succeed regardless of all obstacles.

Storms will always wither away, just if only we are patient and believe we will make it. We all go through storms, no one on this earth is an exception, the strong one will stand the test of time.

Everyone including me has a story to tell, the good, bad, ugly and stimulating ones. We shall have good stories to tell as we remain firm, strong and faithful for others to learn from it and also have hope to move on.

The Journey

I set out on a journey with high expectations.

I met tribulations, trials, rage, stampede,

I cried from pain,

I feared for my life,

I stumbled in shame,

I fell from being tired.

I said to myself,

I never knew the journey would be this tough.

 

Along my way, they appeared to me,

Knowledge,Wisdom, Understanding,

Each one of them showed me the light,

They said to me successful people are not gifted;

They just work hard,

Then succeed on purpose,

Never give up.

 

I rose up unsure of what awaited me,

I moved on with determination,

But cried out in confusion,

Can a journey be this far?

Can a journey be this tough?

Can I survive this journey?

Can I stand the test of time?

Why so much thunderstorms?

Why is the road so rough and narrow?

 

I dried my tears never giving up.

I  continued with the journey,

I walked with bold steps.

I brought out the sword with the words,

Which I had long forgotten,

And it said to me;

Trust in the Lord on your long journey.

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord,

And whose hope the Lord is-Jeremiah 17:7

 

There was a rough tousle of wind,

And I heard,

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

And do not rely on your own understanding.

Acknowledge him in all your ways,

And he will make your paths straight- Proverbs 3:5-6.

 

I have journeyed far,

The journey has turned me into a success story.

A journey everyday that has unfolded passionate discoveries.

Leslie-Why I have Sex with My Husband Everyday

It is absolutely normal for women to feel distant, depressed and agitated after giving birth.  Scientifically, the basic element in a marriage is SEX. If you want your husband to act like a man, you need to treat him like a man. Leslie says it all  as written down in this article to share with everyone.

I have sex with my husband everyday, not that I go around telling people but I would love to share my experience with others. My man is the “keep to myself type”, he loves to drink,  playful and once in a while doesn’t miss hanging out with friends.

I had my first child three years after we got married then became distant for a while, complications set in……boredom, depression, name it. The thing is my husband looks fragile but he’s a lion in bed; I discovered after 2 weeks of not touching each other that something was amiss.

I had just finished having my shower, my husband was in the room starring at his laptop as usual, I came out naked which I had not done in a while; I felt wilted, looked like an overripe pawpaw after my childbirth. I was feeling more confident now as I had lost a lot of the fat.

He looked up, gazed at me like a Tiger that wanted to feed on it’s prey, I got into bed with him, we were both silent for about ten minutes  I closed my eyes and started to wonder what was going on in his mind….I could here the clock ticking in my head….. before I could say Jack Robinson, I was in his arms and it was that way everyday like I would never allow a single strand of “hair on my head to be cut off”..

There is something restorative about kissing the boy you love. There are times in his arms when I remember who I am…… Yes, I am a fat mother, cleaner, housekeeper, whatever, but I am also something more, something delightful and completely apart from my roles. I am a woman! Oh sexy lady…..

SEX is so magical, it acts as a cure for so many illness, it helps fight off colds and the flu,  You’d be basically immortal is what I’m trying to say when you do it everyday my friends!

Men are who they are. They need to be stripped off hunger, they need to be acknowledged, and they need to go on that sweet journey everyday. Every night after the kids go to bed is a chance for you to be with that boy that used to make your knees buckle, feel shy….. that boy that you used to find it so hard to wait for his phone calls. Remember resisting his touch back then was like resisting the sweet savor taste of CHOCOLATE.

Theoretically, having sex every single day would make you feel younger, fertile, never get sick, relieves you of stress, basically sex makes you a superhero; make that man feel special, let him know he’s still the boy you have always loved and wanted to spend your life with.

 

 

Guest- My Love Forever

Remember

That day you walked into my life,

You knocked at my door,

Stood there at my door post,

Like an angel sent to relinquish me,

From my world of loneliness.

I let down my guard,

Couldn’t resist your look of innocence,

My world was wide open for you,

You asked me to let you in.

 

Remember

The first day at dinner table,

You sat down across me,

The candle light flickered across your face.

Oh, those beautiful eyes,

That drew me into your soul.

You had a taste of my meal,

Like I could have a taste of you,

You asked for more.

 

 

Remember

The first day my tongue curled around yours,

Sweet tongue lashing kiss,

Dived into your ocean of electrifying suspense,

My heart raced timelessly,

Thought it would pop out.

I felt no guilt holding you,

In my hands, In my home, as my guest,

It was not against your will,

You asked for more.

 

Remember

The first time I felt your body,

Against mine; The chemistry

Yes the chemistry,

It flowed through my veins,

Tickling me to life of untold savor,

You consumed my hungry body,

Satisfied my quench for desire,

I basked in sexual gratification,

I didn’t wait for you to ask for more,

I gave you all of me.

 

Remember

I knew you not,

From nowhere, whence you came from,

You were my guest,

You standing at my porch was all my life needed,

Be it an Alien, a thief of the night, an angel,

I cared less,

I knew deep in my soul,

You were the one,

And now we are bound together,

Forever we shall be together.

Shattered Glass

My heart,

Transparent like a glass,

See through my innocent soul.

Trying to pave through my heart?

Tender as it is?

Do you not see?

that mounting on my heart,

shatters me,

to bits and pieces too tiny,

cannot be put back into shape.

Can be shaped back together?

How?

Will it be the same again?

Same way it was before?

Or stronger?

Like starting all over again?

Why then treat heart that way?

When all you have to do,

is to tread with care,

not break heart into pieces,

care for heart as you care for your life.

This post is in response to one word prompt. Glass.

Never run from your shadow
