What father’s day reminds me of.

I don’t know whether am writing this as a regret or as a painful memory. Each year father’s day is celebrated always reminds me of my sad past. I don’t know whether I will call it jealousy.

It’s already 21 years my dad left me in this world. He left without saying a word to me. He left without giving me at least a pinch of encouragement.            Back then I usually say to myself that I won’t forgive my dad for leaving me when I needed him most. But as am growing; I then understood that death isn’t something someone will just decide to partake in it because even those that died never and will never accept death themselves. 

If I sounds jealous please bear with me because I wished to still have him till now, but God knows the best. I will still wish you happy father’s day dad. Though I don’t know you very well, but I can sense that you are a good person and I took that part myself because by the grace of God, I work tirelessly to be a good person. I took from where you stopped just to make sure that all your good expectations were all accomplished.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

Most stupid things people in love does!(read and be blessed)

Though am not used to writing much long posts like this👇, but I really need to pass the message to the utmost. So be patient and read on; you will never regret for reading this, I promise! Though it’s not that long anyways!

I wonder whether this is love or something else. You claim to be in love with someone while your intention is totally different from your approach.
I have seen many people making the same mistakes all over, this mistakes is mainly common for men/guys, but few ladies also partakes in it.

Few years ago, a guy was invited to a party, during the party, he saw a very beautiful and charming young lady. He concentrated on the lady for the whole day, without doubt,he was keen to meet with her. Unfortunately, the young lady wasn’t alone in that party; for they were many which gave him no chance to meet her. When the party was over and they were about to leave; he started following them until he got the clue of where the lady was coming from, though it wasn’t far from the party venue.

Months passed by, and It happened that when he finally had the opportunity to meet with this particular lady; he didn’t waste time to  start vomiting all he  had in his mind, until he was done, he didn’t allow her to say a word even as she was trying to say something; he continued…. And when he finally landed, she took a deep breath and now it was her turn to speak. She started with a smile(as in a decent girl), she said: I have heard all you said and believe me, your words are really lovely, but; but what? He cut in, she paused and then continued…. I wanted to say this, but, but what? He cut in again with the same method and she paused again, but this time around, she continued, and determined to spit it out without delay; I have a boyfriend! what did you just said? He asked. I said I have a boyfriend; she answered. He started stammering; but… but… but, she cut in too; but what? but you didn’t tell me since and i was here using all my strength to profess my love to you; he answered. She looked at him and nodded her head.

She then replied: when you seemed not to allow me to speak, I then waited for you to land before i speak. At least I showed you some respect that’s why I didn’t walk out on you. He responded; but now with bitterness: do you know how long I have been waiting for you? It’s been over some months now that i have been waiting for this opportunity, (he reminded her the party and narrated how everything went until that moment). He continued… I was hoping to hear something different from what i just heard, but at the end; you disappointed me. She bowed her head, (but not disappointed anyway).

She replied:  Am so sorry about how far you have gone just to get opportunity to speak to me, you should have done that for a very long time, so that you won’t feel bad as you’re feeling right now. It wasn’t my intention to disappoint you, you were the one that sees it as a disappointment from me. I have a boyfriend of whom I love so much, I would have given you a chance, but now; am already in love.

Tears flowed down his cheeks as he wept bitterly. He felt so disappointed and left feeling humiliated.

It was about two weeks later, this time around the guy came with some of his friends to beg the lady to accept him. The guy actually made a deal with his friends that the lady must accept him after his last statements and proposal. He begged her again and again, when it seems the lady won’t change her mind; he went ahead on his knees with many promises to get the whole world for her should if she accepted him. This time around, the lady became so annoyed because the guy refused to accept the fact that she was in a relationship and she loved her boyfriend so much that she can’t leave him for any guy just like that. After some series of begging and arguments, the guy felt more humiliated joined with embarrassment in front of his friends because they started making jest of him. Before he left; he vowed to never give up on her and promised her that he will deal with her mercilessly.

One month later, when the lady was walking down a lonely street, it was about 7:30 pm. On her way, she suddenly felt as if she was being followed, whenever she turned, she won’t see anyone because there were lots of bushes along the street. At a point, group of guys suddenly came out of the bush and lifted her and took her into a nearby bush, covered her face and mouth in order not to scream out. She was shocked to see that particular guy Infront of her when the veil was removed from her face. He said to her: finally you have gotten what you deserved. She begged him but to no avail, he said: then I was the one begging, but now you were the one begging. He went ahead to take advantage of her likewise his friends; she was raped by six guys one after the other, starting from the guy himself.

Few months later, the guy and his friends were arrested and charged for rape, and was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment each.

What a sad end for the guy and his friends, wasn’t it? We all should be very careful of the way we handle things like this, of course it will be very hard for you to see a  single lady or a single guy, it’s quite rare. If you approach a lady and asked her out, if after your struggles to win her over fall through, please let her be and maintain peace and serenity, you will surely find your right partner when the time comes. Let’s not partake in a crime that will end us up in the dungeon. There is no force in love I must say! To love is not what you can decide for someone else. I think we have to learn a lot from this story. 

A word is enough for the wise, anyone who has ear should hear. Let’s save our lives and reputations. Am warned and you too should be warned. 

Like, comment, share and reblog, of course to make the message go viral and save those who are planning to undertake such crime. Am sure with this so many lives and future will be saved. 

Bursh cares and loves you all.

GROANING AND HELPLESS!

How tarnished the gold has become! The fine gold has lost its luster. 
The sacred Stones lie strewn at every street corner!

The ones who worth their weight in gold- but now reckoned no more than earthen jars from a Potter’s hand!

Even jackals breastfeed their young, but they have become heartless, like ostriches in the desert.

In thirst the infant’s tongue cleaves to the top of its mouth. 

The children are begging for food, but there is no one to give to them.

Brighter than snow were they, even whiter than milk; their bodies rosier than coral, their appearance as radiant as sapphires.

Now they are blacker than soot, unrecognised in the streets. 

Their skin has shrivelled on their bones; it has become as dry as wood.

They wandered like blind men, groping through the streets, so defiled with blood that no one would touch their garments.

“Go away!” People cried at them.

 “Do not touch us! You’re unclean!” 

They became fugitives wandering about, and even the nations would drive them out.

They have been straining their eyes, looking for help in vain. 

They watched and waited for a nation that failed to save them.

Men dogged their steps so that they could not walk in their streets.

Their end drew near, their days were numbered; they knew their end had come.

Swifter were their pursuers than the eagle in the sky.

Over the hills they chased them, they waylaid them in the wilderness.

Your soul lives on!(1 min read)

I was pondering over my past experiences, and how it seems as if I wasn’t moving with the momentum I supposed to. I was wondering whether I would have achieved more than I have achieved today. I was like; is this really the level I supposed to be by now? It worsened especially seeing how great some of my mates had achieved. On the process of my deep thoughts; I remembered one unforgettable tragedy that struck me so bad during my secondary school stage. It brought my senses back and taught me how to live without regrets, since there is life, there is hope.

It was six years ago when i lost one of my classmates, he was a very nice, gentle and loving young man, we were of the same age then. Well, we started together from jss1 and I left the school after our jss3 just because our school then was just offering commercial and arts subjects, and I was going for science course, that was why i left the school. Back then before I left the school; both of us were so fond of each other, he was more than a friend, in fact he was like a brother to me. The bond was too tight that no one could break. He used to play band in their church, so during break time we used to stay together and he would sing and play  some beats with sticks on the desk. He taught me one song and that song do rejuvenate his memory back to me. ( Something is happening in this world x2, if you go many place; you will see people dying, if you go many place; you will see people sicking, things I don’t like to do but I found myself doing that x2, help me Lord x2 Oh! Help me Lord”, hold my hands and lift me up Oh Lord! x2)

Oh death! I can’t stop weeping because the song really brought his memory back to me from A-Z as I was writing this grieve story. I couldn’t see clearly anymore, my android screen was full of tears, it was uncontrollable. It was as if it happened yesterday. 

The day we went for his burial was really terrible because i was just looking at him and began to have flashbacks of our moments together, it was as if he was sleeping but at the same time his stomach was swollen. I couldn’t believe my good friend(Promise Emecheta) is no more! Dear Promise, We will meet to part no more! I love you, but God loves you most. In loving memory of Promise Emecheta…. Your soul lives on😭😭😭😭😭😭
After remembering all these; I encouraged myself. I asked myself this question; what of my good friend Promise who died many years ago? Am still alive while he’s gone forever. Am I righteous than he was? I concluded; am gonna make you proud my good friend✊.

Dear friends, let’s continue to appreciate God for his kindness, and stop complaining about what we achieved and what we couldn’t or haven’t achieved. Remember there were those who died without achieving anything at all. Just do your best and leave the rest to God.

Since there is life, there is hope☝.

MY LIFE STORY( I survived and you too can survive!)(2 min read)

What a life, how does it feel to be the first born of a family? 

My village back in 1950s

It was so difficult because you have to Carter for all as the father does. It was early 1950s, I was a young man then. My father died as a hero because he was a great man. It was never easy because I have to be the father to my younger ones. We were three in number but I know how difficult it will be. My mom was also hardworking but you know how it feels to take care of three kids with little resources.

Nkanagu cement industry

I started searching for job, I was rejected by many people i approached for  job. It was as if everyone was against me and my family, and I looked devastated and useless. To God be the glory I eventually met one Mr Julius, he was a very wealthy man who was eager to help.He introduced me to the manager of Nkanagu cement industry back then. It was a relief to me because he got me a job after I narrated my story to him. Through his kindness I was able to  secure the job and helped my mom to Carter for our family, then I was 21 years old. I worked so hard and was able to support my mom to  pay my siblings school fees, I abandoned my own school just to fulfill that obligation as a father to my siblings. 
10 years later I was invited to attend one ceremony at Onitsha Anambra state, Nigeria. Well am also from Anambra state but the distance between Onitsha and my hometown wasn’t in anyway near. On the course of the ceremony I saw a very beautiful young girl, she’s fair in complexion and was full of smiles and shiny face; indeed she was like the princess i have been dreaming of. I stared at her as if she was the only Lady there. At a point she noticed me and reciprocated with a gaze, it was as if my happiness has arrived. It was very hard for me to make the decision to approach her. The spirit was willing while the courage was weak. When the ceremony was dying slowly, then I was about to lose her forever because I don’t think we can see each other again. I picked up courage to approach her and when I got there, her beauty was really incomparable. That was the first time of me speaking to a lady in such a romantic manner; it seems as if she was waiting for me to arrive. Everything went well because she allowed me to speak my mind. After the conversation, I collected her home address and she collected mine because we doesn’t have phone then. Later on I invited her to our house and introduced her to my mom and siblings; they liked her and my mom gave us her blessings.

The relationship got more intimate because we realized that we loved each other so much and that we were meant for each other. As years pass by we got more closer and closer. I proposed to her and  we got married. We were blessed with 2 boys and a girl. Our house was built with mud, and it was too small to accommodate us all. So I began to make some saves from my work and other businesses I attached myself to.

 I started the foundation of my house  exactly November 16 1975, that was after the 1967-1970 civil war. Life wasn’t that easy because the war was terrible, but i thanked God that we survived the tragic scene of civil war. I vowed to send my children to higher institution since I couldn’t make it during my own time. I trained my children to the university level in the University of Nigeria Nsukka(UNN) and they were very successful too. I continued striving hard until I became a successful business man. My children graduated with good grades, and they got good jobs; it was easier for them to secure jobs because I have gotten some connections by then. They got married and live happily. My siblings were successful too because I put them through. My mom is still very strong since I have been taking care of her. In fact we’re happy family.

You see their friends, life is never easy, but we have to always give our best to everything we are doing. If at all I gave up on the way to this journey of life; where will I be or even my siblings, mother and children. Weaknesses only detach us from achieving our goals in life. Never allow anything to distract you or weigh you down. I survived it and you too can also survive👉.

Am so happy to still have my beautiful and lovely wife beside me, my mother is very old, but strong. We’re really grateful to God for making us strong and healthy. Now I have my children and grandchildren all over, we’re praying for God to straighten our age so that we will see our great grandchildren😇.

What do you think about my fiction story? Does it sounds real? I need your comments and opinions because am not actually good at fiction, this is my first.

SPEECHLESS!

AM SPEECHLESS! I woke up and felt battered, I have nothing to say, I don’t know whether am happy or sad. Will I call it weakness? 

I never feel this way before, even when am sick I do feel strong. I possess two characters at the same time. It seems as if am empty inside of me, what might have gone wrong? Can you figure out what is wrong with me?

Stay away from trouble!! (40 seconds read) 

Bludgeon It happened one evening, when I used to hang out with some friends, that was about 10 years ago. We were having fun and also engaged in a serious conversation, at a point it seems that it has turned into an argument. This argument continued until one of my aggressive friend began to threaten me so badly, the fun turned into a quarrel… I was calm because I knew where the whole thing is going. Before I could understand what was going on, it has turned into a real fight.

 I hate weapons and I don’t fight with weapons, we were sitting with plastic chairs then, and the aggressive one grabbed one of the chairs and hit me so badly and it was really painful. I ran without looking back, Managed to find my way home, I sustained minor injuries on my wrist because I used it to wage the chair. I treated the wound and went straight to bed without a second thought, because it was a very bad evening for me. 

Since that day, I learnt my lesson, not to engage in any form of argument, and also to stay away with such aggressive friends because I don’t really know whether something worst might happen on the process…..
