Listened to a song of late; #Food for thought by Flow.
Even though it’s a rap song and i could barely understand what he was saying.. even with headphones…. (Rap’s not really my thing.. x_x), it still got me thinking. You should download it though, It’s really good. This link would lead you to the download page –>> http://t.co/xd1Mp3ck2E .
Anyway, I got thinking and lots of things flashed through my mind; things man has found a way of ignoring, things that deserve our Thank You but never get them. So I put my pen to paper and wrote some sort of Rap-Poem-Ode write-up. Call it anything you like but I’ll rather you just see these sentences you’re about to read as lines of wisdom from a grateful mind. Many of the thoughts are abstract but should be easy to understand with a little effort.
Enjoy and be Inspired! 😉

The wise that acknowledges his wisdom
wishes for his folly.
The warrior that disregards fear…
knows nothing about the art of war.
and the man who lives to serve..
is indeed a Leader.
How many worlds do you live in?
How many lives have you got?
Don’t mind the cat, he’s just bluffing.
He really aint got that much time.
The Almighty has a say in everything
And you’ll be called up when its time.
To err is human, to forgive is God.
It aint your right to become God.
Mr./Mrs. “I don’t forgive or forget”
Your fate’s gonna be like Nebu
And God help you..,
It’s bitter leaf grass you have in your compound.
“I’ve got my life to live!“
She had hers to live too
She could have forfeited all the pain and wails
but nahh, you’re here today
and still, you forget how cheap adoption or pills are
Cherish your mum Bro, She’s why you’ve got that life.
“Well, I can say whatever I want to say!“
your mouth is on a constant recoil
The good, the bad , the ugly
Have all had a taste of your weapon of destruction
Do repent soon Lad
before the Almighty puts “His” to use on you
“You only live once!”
True, but you also only die once
So get your head straight,
and put your life in order.
you came to this world with a purpose
don’t let youthful exuberance ruin it for you.
“Who the hell are they mehn?!
How dare they ground me?
For f**king sake, I’m 21!“
True… but there are still your parents
so, remember in all you do,
The only commandment with a promise.
“I’m the boss of all bosses!
I have it all and I run the show!“
True, you might be a boss after all.
True, your might be feared and respected.
True, folks might look up to you,
but remember, Your fantasy is someone’s shit.
“Am gonna be rich and popular!
I’ll own islands and estates!“
A big amen to your declaration
but remember, it comes with a price
Nobody became successful overnight
Don’t expect the rules to change for you.
“Well, it’s my picture not yours
my nudes, my body, my dignity!”
Well, for now it is.
But wait till you’re a mother…
and we’ll see if it’s still your dignity
when your son’s surfing through your pics online.
“Jesus is real and Satan is the devil“
they’ve suddenly become nursery rhymes to you
is there a second chance after death and judgment?
So far, no living being knows.
So use your only chance well
and don’t turn out like the old man
Learning from experience then won’t pay you.
I hope a message has been passed across else there wont be a need for this article.
Would also like to give a Happy birthday shout out to the best brother money can’t buy…
Happy Birthday Tomi Awonowo!
Long life and prosperity.
