ARTIFICIAL

tales from the past interest me
testimonies encourage me
beware of the knock on your neighbour's door
dont ignore it,get some information
the crack on the wall
might become a hole on your fence


ARTIFICIAL

The existence of "Artificiality"
Has neither boundaries nor limits
Across gender,personality,identity and disposition
It holds its throne among the sons of men

He is a manly-boy
She is just a girl
He is experienced
She is naive
He is opaque
She is transparent
He is perfidious
She is trustworthy

A blend of contrasting personalities
connected on the stage of "love"
In the light of a saviour he approached
With tales from the past,laying emphasis on common grounds
Her interest is aroused
Cos the naive holds curiosity some where in their bossom
Blink, Blink - goes the signal
He recognises her gullibility

As a hook takes hold on a fish
He capitalizes on his discoveries
In an experience borne expertise
He wades her off her familiar route
"Thank goodness, i finally came to shore
No need to sail on unknown waters"
Such were the thoughts on her mind

Armed with rehearsed gait
and the softness of questionable sainthood
He gains way into her resource mine
In deceit, she was mined

She is rich and endowed with life's resources
yea,in abundance- Cash like gold
Beauty like diamond,kindness of heart like ornyx
Temperane like ruby
She is the kind of lady who sticks
Neither for price nor reward

He is built and manly
So sad, he's got a boy's understanding
Men live today in consideration of the 'morrow
Boys live today with the moment at heart
Without consideration of her mines' nature
He quarried the resource whose origin he knows not

Alas! she was at loss
He counted his blessings like the smart will do
She was pent-up
He expressed emotions that never existed
He promised perpetuity
In search of security, She signed a treaty
If only wisdom made her know it was her own 'goal

He claims what he's not
Reciting the victory of others
As though they were his
Showing off mundane possessions
But will never own up when she asks
A pauper he is when with her
A king with the others
He condemns wrong before her
Embraces the opposite as she blinks away

He wants her when the mine is due
Prefers another when the mine goes fallow
"I'm at the blue gate," he says
A second look reveals him at the grey
He calls it A, reality states it's Z

I can understand the contrast between darkness and light
yet, i struggle to comprehend that between a good container
and a rotten content
Why do people prefer artificial noble poses
Knowing that they tempt serious trouble

The virus of artificial nobility
Has ruined many potential nobles
What does it pay to lead up the garden
When the reward is, but ephemeral
I choose to be myself
Live sincerely and deal sincerely
In the path of transparency lies greatness
For hypocrisy shall bite the dust

I DETEST THE CIRCLE OF ARTIFICIAL PERSONS

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The potency of trust

Read Part 4 here On this third day of praise, I felt like drinking Chinese tea. My praise jam was on already and I was reading my bible and making my confessions in preparation for my dance. I couldn’t shake off the urge to drink the tea. I made it and started sipping.  I started cramping badly. I was wondering why is this happening, I’ve had my period already. I don’t have endometriosis anymore. I will tell you how God delivered me from that one shortly.I continued my dance in pain. Before I knew it, I felt pressured below. I washed my hands and sent it there. Men and brethren, Look who came out . Both are the same fibroid. Picture 1: After I washed it. Picture 2: When it just fell out. I  felt different  emotions at once. One of which was fear. Ah God! What is this again? Are there more? What next? How long would this monster keep coming back? I summoned courage and resumed my praise. I gave my best dance that third day.  Shortly afterwards, my husband called. I didn’t know if I shou
