Just Me

There's nothing like good music in lonely moments
There's nothing like good food in an empty stomach
There's nothing like cold water to a thirsty soul
Nor is any like a phone call from your best friend

There are moments I cherish
Moments I won't trade or rubbish
Moments of laughter, 'gisting', playing, taking pictures with my good friends
Studio sessions, making my songs
Quiet times when I pour my heart to God
Bible study at 'Kingdom Word'

There are things that give me a broad smile
Watching the page view count on my blog rise
Having time to sleep during my call
Reading lovely comments on my wall
Meeting people of similar interests
Watching pictures and recalling good memories

Yet there are things that make me sad
Falling into the hands of a bad producer
Falling in love with someone I can't have

And yet some that irritate me
Seeing DP's that make pun of porn
Guys that don't know the meaning of 'No'
And touts that think they can have everything on skirt

Mom of life

Today is my mom's birthday and I want to use this platform to honour her today in my writing.

She's a most unique woman. 'Yea, who won't talk good about her mom', you are probably thinking right now. Well, it's not my fault that she's altogether good and I thank God for giving me her for a mother.

Let me tell you about my mom.
First, she is a godly woman. She's a practical christian. She brought us up in christian principles that have guided and kept us till now. Things like praying, reading the Bible, giving, fasting, etc. She would wake up every day at 4am to pray on her own, then wake us up for morning devotion.

Secondly, she is educated and loves education. My mom is responsible for my intelligence. She took out time to teach me Maths and English and even once in secondary school when I complained about Biology she read it and began explaining to me. I was good at Grammar and Oral English in school just because mummy always corrected our grammar and phonetics. While most kids complained about Maths, I loved it so much that I even did Further Maths in senior secondary.

She made sure we prepared for exams before the dates. She would not let me rest until she was sure I had gone through the book from front to back and then back to front. She'd pick up a subject and read it and then begin asking me questions.

Altogether, God has blessed me with a loving, caring, beautiful and godly woman as a mother and I celebrate her today. Mummy, may you see better years and may you not go down the way of all men until you have seen your dreams come to pass. I love you.

Prov31:28 'Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also praises her'

A dizain for my mom:

Mom, you're the best
Every single day I'll repeat
And much more you're blest
I can shout in the street
Let 'em know on my tweet

You are my star
You shoot without a scar
A friend, a mother, a wife
And more you are
My mom of life
