BE

BE A REBEL!

Rebel against your excuses

BE A FIGHTER!

Fight against your fears

BE AN UNDERTAKER!

Bury your pasts that don’t inspire or challenge you

BE A FIERCE COMPETITOR!

Compete with the image you see in your mirror

BE HOPEFUL!

Be the hope you never had

BE A LEGEND!

Define your own path and create your own legacy

BE A LOVER!

Love is the only arsenal you can use to win all

BE A REWARDER!

Reward yourself for your hard work and excuse their ignorance

Why They Doubt Us

We always tell them the truth

But they never believed

Because they are lying for a living

Building empires in/with falsehood

And it’s impossible for someone to say the truth

In their lying world

So they believe everyone is like them

A conglomerate of liars.

Wake Up

We are trying to imitate

These models playing some roles

Taking them for role models

And modelling our lives after scripted actions

Instead of looking into the Scriptures

Where our lives were perfectly scripted

By the creator

Now we are living like the acting world

Instead of acting on the living Word

Going to TV models are our directory

And ignoring the Holy Spirit, our director

Let’s awake from our slumbering

The Lord is at hand.

MANY VOICES

I hear many voices

But who’s speaking?

Am I to listen to the voices

Or to know who’s speaking?

Will listening to the voices

Help me know who’s speaking?

Or will the voices

Distract me from who’s speaking?

Though my soul is constantly tormented by the surrounding voices

My dear heart pants to hear who’s speaking

Like the hungry soul of a pilgrim looking for direction

In a wilderness with many roads and deception

I wish I could be alone with no voices

But true silence only exist outside of the land of the living.

Please, who can help me filter these voices?

For my existence is tied to identifying and following the one who’s speaking.

Poets Never Die

Oh how sad it is 

To see you leave

Gone with the wind 

You followed the road 

All runners go

Ashes to ashes

Your body return to dust

But

It’s only sad to say it’s sad

Yes, they bury your body

And yes, people gather to say

‘May your soul rest in peace’

But they did not bury you

For your soul is in your work

Your work is with and within us

Though death do us part

Your words

And life live forever

Cause

Poets never die

So 

Long live the Legend

Long live #ToniMorrison 

The Things I See

The things I see

Eyes have not seen

Ears have not heard

A new identity is needed

Rather, a renewed identity

One only love can give

And only love can preserve

.

The things I see

Mouth cannot tell

They’re unlawful to utter

Not that they’re unlawful

They just don’t appeal to the senses

They are the unrefined gold

Stored in a deserted building.

.

The things I see

They scare me to death

But are the reason for my living

The dream of promised land in the land of captivity

A million kids with all identity going to school

From the land of hopelessness

.

The things I see

A vision beyond human percipience

But with your renewed identity

You can catch the glimpse and refine the gold

And from the land of hopelessness

Love, faith and hope fill the nations.

Relationship Scale of Preference

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

The vertical relationship is at the peak of the Triangle. You want to maintain a healthy relationship with your Creator because that’s is the source of your life, power and wellbeing. Once this is intact, every other relationships becomes a flow). A man who does not understand the love of Jesus Christ for His Church will not be able to love his wife unconditionally as expected. Also, the woman who does not understand the submission of the Church to Jesus Christ, will find it difficult to submit to her husband. The same applies to relate with children, family and friends.

RELATIONSHIP WITHΒ SPOUSE

(Relationship with your spouse is the second most important, most precious and valuable one because your spouse is an inseparable part of you; your partner in this journey of life and the one who watches your blindspots). As long as I am concerned, It is better to remain single than to marry someone you can’t trust or rely on. This is very important.

A healthy marriage breeds healthy community

RELATIONSHIP WITHΒ CHILDREN

Your relationship with your child or children is very important especially for them because it has a trickling down effect on future generations and the society as a whole. Children learn more by imitation, meaning that they get to copy how you relate with your spouse (as a parent, you are your children’s first and strongest role model and ally). A child’s behaviour can be traced directly to the parents and family they come from. As Next Minute Leadersβ„’, your children will replicate what they see in the lives of the parents and close family members, and of course, take it to the next level. This is why it’s very important to train up your child “in the way it should go”- King Solomon

RELATIONSHIP WITH EXTENDED FAMILY

This is a very important and delicate relationship to manage. It’s delicate because this is your family – they knew your challenges, weaknesses and have been there for you from infancy. They played a major role in your upbringing. I’m talking about your parents, siblings, inlaws, and family members. It very important because you have to keep the relationship healthy and respectful even if don’t accept their counsels or disagree with them.

I refer to them as extended family because once you’re married, your nuclear family structure changes to: you, spouse and children

RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS

Keep it clean, friendly and resourceful.
