WHO AM I

I am the created,
Who was carved and embedded
In a compartment to be conceived.
As a light bearer,
Designed to shine bright in my apartment with an assigned department to lead.
I am for Him alone

I am lion;
Bold and fearless,
The architect of my commission.
With eyes of an eagle not relenting in my vision.
My voice like a nightingale as a tool for my assignment.
More like a flowing stream ever connected to my source.
I am an epitome of His Image.

I am a part of a body
Little but unique,
Stocked with values to fulfill my task,
And other parts to aid my mission.
For His purpose alone to play.

I am a being
Required to reign,
Cultured and groomed
Hence cannot rupture.
I crave for His milk;
Ever drinking from His table.
I am drowned in the sea of my aspiration to be a replica of my maker.
I am who He says I am.

HOW TO BECOME A BILLIONAIRE IN AFRICA

 

Success in life depends on how you handle your failures. Being a billionaire in Africa is more than having a bunch of zeroes. Working from a life of little or nothing to living in the lap of luxury is the classic African-man dream. Here’s a theory I have cooked up for days on how to become a billionaire in Africa.

  • DISCOVER YOUR PASSION

Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate. For there is nothing great that happens in the life of a person without the person first discovering the reason why he exists. I regard this as the first step to becoming that billionaire you sought after. You have got to find that thing that makes you sleep late at night and wakes you up early in the morning. The truth about life is that without considerable effort spent on finding your true self, it will be difficult to gain influence in life. For everyone’s dream is to be known and recognized but only a few has the time to sit down to discover his/her passion. There is no other way to go around this rather than self-discovery, for with it everything in life that was invented began. You want to become great? You don’t just sit there folding your arms, get up and find somewhere inconvenient where you can discover your passion truly.
Africa needs your passion, so decide right now that it’s possible to find it, and use this guidance to gain clarity. When you find your passion, be assured; it will always guide you right.

  • GET SKILLED

If you are to desire being a billionaire, time and study would be required. This is the next thing that happens in your life after first discovering who you are. If you want to be respected, honored, and influential, you have to learn from your predecessors and that’s getting all skilled up. Gaining more knowledge in that passion you have found will make you attain the height you desire. To mention a few names like Aliko Dangote (Nigeria), Christoffel Wiese (South Africa), these people found their passion and didn’t just stop there, they went ahead to acquire enough knowledge in what they should know. The moment you think you have nothing left to learn is the moment you kill your potential, for it’s what you learn after you know it all that counts. To be a billionaire, you have got to think like one; you have got to sacrifice what you have to acquire what you need.

  • START NOW

After close study on discovering your passion and gaining more knowledge on it, the next step is to put everything into action straight away. Starting your passionate business and taking it to success isn’t always easy, but for those with good business sense and the ability to spot start-ups that have potential to be great, entrepreneurship can be the vehicle to their wealth. The truth is that time won’t wait for you to begin to explore of all what you have inside of you, you have got to take the plunge and start work immediately. Are you into buying and selling? Start that business now. The world is ruled by men of action and not men of procrastination. Without you showcasing yourself to the world, it will be quite difficult for you to have influence over what you are doing. Until your immediate environment and community know what you do, then you will begin to explore far beyond your capability. Tell someone about what you do and have that person tell another person until what you do becomes no new thing any longer.

  • BE CONFIDENT, DISCIPLINED, DETERMINED

After all said and done, you won’t be close to being a billionaire if you don’t take this step into consideration. Africa is wide and therefore only those who won’t give in to the situation and circumstances around them will eventually triumph. Regardless of any business you may want to do; being confident, disciplined and determined will get you to that spot. Those qualities allow you to look at old things in a new way, to see the potential for change and profit where others see only what already had been done. Failure will never overtake you if your determination to succeed is strong enough.

  • PUT GOD FIRST

When you put God first, all other things fall into place or out of your life. You can work all you want and read all you have but the main factor is God. If you do not put God into what you want to accomplish, you may end up not reaching that limelight. The steps to becoming a billionaire in Africa is the same step you need to becoming that billionaire in the world. Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment; therefore, you have got to reflect over these theories over and over again until you begin to have that feeling that to be great is a thing of the mind.

It’s not easy to build your passionate business from scratch, especially when it’s a fortune of billions, just remember that time is on your side if you don’t rush it.

If you’ve got your own tips for becoming a billionaire in Africa. I’d love to hear them, kindly drop your comment.

CONCEALED PAINS

 

Little one became a star over the night,
In storms and whirlwind, he stood as a knight
Salvaging all he could on a teary cold tar
Like the beautiful shining evening star,
Only to be cut short by roaring bullets.
With her hands on her head, she sits on the terrain,
As words of suicide caresses her like the rain.
Just as life turned bitter sweet in time,
The smirk of cancer throttles with a mime,
And all gathered hope became a funeral.
Raped and cuddled at eight,
Sweet Tatiana starts to hate,
When the fruit of love began to grow,
HIV/AIDS molested her in a row.
Now she begs at the feet of desperation.
Beauty takes its toll on everyone.
Little Rajesh was no exception to this law,
Only to have his birth in a home so dark and so raw.
Grew up with cracks and various drugs,
To star on death precious fury rugs.
Filled with an ugly coated past,
Fear covers her like a cast.
Running from every road of tranquility,
Only to fall back to the hands of reality.
She took her last steps on the tracks of a moving train.
Naive with series of pleasures,
And beaten by punches of treasures,
As a hoe she acquired her three meals.
Every sickness made sudden peals,
In her home, she lived in death.

A LETTER TO CONSCIENCE


The pleasure my heart experience
whenever you speak,
The trees of hope you planted,
The ancient rocks weathering,
The silent emptiness and the quite
shout.
Every time your bell rings, my
heart smile, because you were the best friend it ever had.
The assurance in your voice and
the confidence you gave us,
You were the only dog that never
stopped barking.

Without you freedom does not have
a purpose,
Without you the urge to know
anything about the rule of law engraved in the hearts of men and women are
gone,
Since we did not listen to your
voice “conscience”, you turned against humanity and society.
You were the silent inner voice
that always warn us about someone coming,
We gradually became a slave to our
will and a master to you “conscience”.
Conscience where art thou?
Do you remember those guys who you
spoke to about decency?
They left you behind and now the
world is upside down.
They forgot your teachings and
turned alcohol into a daily drink,
They effectively smoke marijuana
and say “getting high helps the brain”.
Your sons have turned out to be
adults who deceive ladies telling them virginity is now an old thing.
They have succeeded in moulding
out the dirt of fornication in girls, and our mothers are gradually turning up
the act of cheating their husbands.
They no longer find guilt in what
they do,
The bitterness of the pains they
cause isn’t seizing.
Our teenagers are turning into
drug addict,
Mothers into harlot,
Fathers are now seen as another
lady’s husband.
Conscience, believe me when I say
the world is empty without you.

LIFE


LIFE
Which has been the grave of the
brave?
And the tomb of their wisdom,
Is also the yard of its virtue
For both honour and horror.
LIFE
Walking in the shadow of nature,
Flying on the wings of time,
Riding the horse of darkness to
light,
Gives nothing than void adventure
in time.

LIFE
Has no peace pill,
Even that in the nostrils,
Like a baby that depends on breast
milk,
It is been fed with breath still.
LIFE
Is a pal to death
Precious than diamond and pearls.
It visits death for a rest
And it awaits every life.

PENDOWN



Firstly, I was scared about what
life may bring because I always bath with dysphoria words.
Living with Short sighted peeps
was a great problem, we couldn’t see beyond our Cubicle.

We had a thoughtful future until
it began to dissolve; we were incited about riches alone.
Hmm, our unfailing dreams began to
fade, just obsessed to bad deeds.
How I wish I started living my
dream was my heart cry but yet it’s never too late to live through it.
“Live through your dream” and
don’t be freaked by anyone lifestyle because you never know what the person is
going through.
Be someone’s inspiration and let
God be your inspiration.

KEEP STRIVING


Her legs hanged,
Her deep scream,
Bleeding profusely,
The movement of the needle,
Between her legs.
She endured,
The child was birthed.
In that pain,
The child was feed.
Groaning and panting,
She kept smiling.

She slept without food,
Pretending to be filled,
Enduring starvation.
Days of denying social outings,
Because she had to watch over him,
Times she would cry,
Because he is ill.
She withstand the pains,
Of biting her nipples,
Tapping him gently,
To be soft on her.
Her heart was filled,
With love and passion,
The joy of motherhood,
Was indeed her pride.
I am celebrating all women, who
truly are definition of motherhood.
That’s for withstanding the pains
of child birth, training us happily believing we would appreciate you later.
I love you mothers.
I am proud to be one in making.
Happy international women’s day.

BESIDE YOU


Most times, it feels like everything is lost especially when
you do not get what you crave for. You know, it’s so painful to be beside
someone you love just for the person to lay far away from you. Life is full of
ups that seem not to come down. It’s so out of the mind that you wonder why
life tends to put you in such a situation just to see your flaws.

For these are those moments when you need the presence of
your partner, it’s a period when the table should turn out for the both of you.
This is the moment when everything seemed cool but something just comes and
takes it all off and you begin to wonder what the problem is or who’s at fault.
But it’s high time you take your own path and know nothing worthwhile can ever
occur between the both of you.
For this is the thought of a person who feels jilted in love,
the person may not seem to understand now but definitely they will both learn
to go their separate ways even if it’s so tough to separate. For it’s for the
betterment of both parties as long as friends-zone is been initiated.

STAND BY YOU


Like the helm that strives behind
a Jew,
To eternity; I will stand by you.
When tears of want pats your eyes,
I would neglect not even in an
avalanche of ice.
Through the tunnel of Clamouring
calamities,
I would still battle for you every
deities.

Mourning might persist cos of
nature,
By you I would stand even in
rapture.
Thoughts of death will try to sway
from all spheres,
Weary not cos I will battle all
fears.
Even when you’re struck with
challenges physically,
To the ends of the earth, I will
rage radically.
My sword will thrust into every
hearts,
Especially those that beats you
down with arts.
I’m a poet with respect to
affections,
To give to you beyond every word
attractions.
I live to tell a tale of forever,
Of how I dipped my feet into your
love river.
The blazing sun with its super
shine,
To old age will I love you like an
old wine.
If heaven should come crashing
down like a mountain,
My love for you will continue to
bathe in your fountain.
Destiny might try to be a bitch
To separate me from you. Don’t
worry, I will not twitch.
