liebster-award-rules

I would love to thank Elevated Hope for nominating Eddaz for the Liebster Award. Go check out her blog, It’s lovely.

Eleven questions for me.

1. Have you ever heard of showing cattle?

Yes, I have heard of showing cattle, watched them on Television, I wish I could be present at one, it seems nice when I watch them. There’s this feeling of pride in being able to show a cattle you raised.

2.What is one topic that you could write for days on?

I could write on and on about love which isn’t restricted to only the one that exists between a man and woman but also amongst people of different tribes, race and color. Love is beautiful with glowing crystals not seen nor touched but felt, unfortunately it’s diminishing in the world now, lots of people don’t even know what love is anymore. That’s why i can keep writing about it in different forms to remind people of it’s true meaning.

3. What is your favorite movie and why?

My favorite movie is Furious 7. Apart from the fact that I’m in love with Vin Diesel, it’s a very emotional movie and action packed. It was a perfect way of them showing a farewell to Paul Walker whom I miss a lot.

4. What is your Myers Briggs initials? (Follow this link if you don’t know).

INTP!! For real? Naa. To think I can be compared to Albert Einstein?

5. What kind of car do you drive and why?

I drive an SUV with automatic transmission for no particular reason than to move me around.

6. If you could do anything with no restrictions, what would it be?

I’m a fun lover; without restrictions, I would do anything that involves lots of fun.

7. What’s your favorite diner or hole in the wall place to eat?

I’m not much of a diner, I’m kind of old-fashioned but I love McDonald’s.

8. Who has impacted your life the most?

I would say my Dad, I hope my mum isn’t reading my blog right now…

9. What’s your view point on animal rights vs. animal welfare?

I think animal rights says “do not use us as food, clothes, experiments…,” from my own point of view, their rights need to be limited as long as humane guidelines are followed in handling animals.

10. What is your comfort food?

My comfort food at any time is Italian Pizza, I don’t know what class of food it is, whether it’s junk or healthy food, as long as it gives me sweet tasty comfort.

11. What is your favorite city to visit?

I would love to visit Beijing in China because it’s a historic visit with tourist cites such as the “Forbidden City,” “Great wall of China,” and “Temple of Heaven.”

  6. I love to pray, It’s the key to winning life battles with hard work, faith and wisdom.
  7. Never a dull moment with me, I’ve been tested and tried. Lol.
  8. I hate heights, I travel a lot by air even though I detest it so much, I really wish I could find a cure to that so that I can enjoy my trips.
  9. Sometimes I take life too seriously, sometimes I’m so freaking reckless like there’s no tomorrow, What does that make me?

Big Shout Out To My Father

Daddy you have been everything to me,

Right from birth, you have nurtured me,

Paid my school fees, clothed me, struggled to give me the best life.

There were times you couldn’t buy new clothes for yourself,

Instead you bought for me.

You couldn’t eat three square meals daily,

You ensured that I did.

You gave me the greatest gift no one in existence can ever give me.

You have thought me the importance of family,

You explained to me the gift of love and sharing,

You exposed to me the secrets behind success.

You are definitely -the-one. ‘I Love You’

Thank you Daddy.

 

Happy Father’s Day to all the Fathers in the world!

All About Enriching Women

Several significant body of researches have revealed that for women, the controversial gender inequality in organisations has led to a decline in the motivation of women becoming leaders.

A few women have been able to rise to the top becoming ceo’s, managing directors of companies while some have taken up political positions in the society. Women entrepreneurship is on the rise in the society now like never before, this is a positive step in the evolution of change for women

As a woman’s leadership capabilities grow and opportunities are given to them, it brings purpose for a woman to rise and have a voice in a challenging environment. In a geographical area where women empowerment is embraced, it gives room for a long thread of head start such as enlightenment on the female child growth where awareness is created on their physical changes as they advance into womanhood.

It doesn’t stop at that; Illiteracy will be  reduced especially in developing countries, education is encouraged which increases career opportunities, and in turn helps women in having finances to assist in home affairs with their family. Women will arise…..

I would Eat Popcorn for Poetic Pastures

I would eat popcorn for poetic pastures,

Inspiring for poet’s finest thought,

Smiting a puff up heated word-web of senses;

For my thought to live in tunes.

To which I popped-up poetic licences,

Solemnizing words unseen being nearer brought.

 

It’s grooviness popped-up words unwritten,

I mouthfully chewed; creating an insightful leisure

Of poetic-catharsis, with crimson literature,

That without cornfield prairies comes a poetic drought.

 

My popcorn brings me a quietude chair,

Where poet-inspiration will sit in;

When it mused soundless words in the air,

Rhymed and ballad; as the pop is melting.

Brings the words close to the poet inspiring.

 

I walked popping corn in the linear hedges,

Singing by the colourful lilies edges;

Popcorn in my mouth turning sadness into good,

While I chewed the last pop beneath my blanket,

To which I prayed; popcorn be my thought-food.
