Nightmares And Daydreams

These days my nightmares have nothing on my daydreams.

I keep shuddering, blanking out.

No one is living their dream, only still trying to.

The graves are filled with regrets alas.

A minefield of the mind,

Trapping you, making you work relentlessly toward it.

Approval from all sides and disapproval from where it matters the most.

Do I just stop here and now?

But na only two option you get

Run or Get Trampled over.

If you run, you go run sote you go tire and you go still see say finish line na death so.

If you don’t, those daydreams that made you hope, will be your undoing.

Na life be that.

Self-release

The Essence Of Freedom.
We still crave it. Day in Day out

We strive for it,

We’d fight for it,

We would entertain our worst ideas,

Get a note, this is the one time you get your priorities right all the time.

Your bad decisions created a trail in which you followed religiously, now you are chained.. 

As you make your bed 

You’ll need permissions … a few ‘Abeg now’ every now and then.

But listen;

Your jailer is your prisoner too..

Release him.

Reply to a divorce letter..

  

I had to step to the gym,

I had this feeling making me a little blotted

You left before I’d awoken; I have no idea and I have stopped trying to understand.

I got back and you served me a letter.

I had just complained of the temperature…. I’m about to do it again..

I have a letter for you too…

Go Joor..

It’s amazing and equally sad how a single act of treachery can make u unhappy for the rest of your life..

Even when you muster up the courage to forgive, the stigma is traumatic still.

Treacherous, Treacherous you!

I block out conversations because I want to be unhappy.Hey,’I’m in a moment here’.DO NOT DISTURB.

The mood is set.Lara Larsson’s uncover on repeat. It’s kinda unrelated but it’s what you want anyway.

Afi-suru

I traveled through lagos and noticed a lot of things, but to mention the most evident. I noticed Change.

Dilapidated buildings

Shattered enterprises or simply parted in half

The homeless losing rest havens

The market women getting more cranky over displaced stalls.

Do you get lost in familiar places now unknown ?

Don’t alight at that bustop ohh; it i

sn’t the way through anymore.

Relocation becomes mandatory.

Longer minutes in traffic; impatience has ruined us, has it not?

We are forced to understand that the way up is down.

Yes! The sermon is on, crouch to wherever you have to go.

Amen! And we rise…
