The Gift In The Present

Remember there is no perfect time for anything …

But there is the present time to attempt exploring

All things feasible within the realm of possibilities.

The present time is full of the bounty of opportunities

And could be the best time for all things if we try to

Embrace in full measure the treasures within the moment.

Procrastinate not, but open the precious gift, my friend!

Treasure You

You count the most

In all things, remember to dress your person in your best

And adorn your attitude with your best disposition

And claim the highlights of your life with pride.

Live your best.

Benjoy’s Corner X-10: Define You

If you are trying to shield yourself from what people

Will think or may say about your life’s journey…

Alas, it is nothing but an exercise in futility.

For we have no control over their actions or speech.

Rather expend that energy investing in you

And thrive and on the inherent possibilities.

Fear’s Intrusion (Part I)

Vicious is the apparatus of fear…

For it descends upon you with such awful might

Either in stealth manner or by insidious descent

Then in persistent measure seeks to erode, should one

Permit it to take permanent abode within one’s essence,

The body of hope that ought to propel each one

Into the absolute realm of possibility and beyond despair.

Reject the albatross!

Solace Unlimited

When the tempests of life surge
And appear really determined
To overwhelm the desperate soul.
Seek courage in Him who has
Been faithful through the ages,
The Ancient of days, the Almighty
And one True God, in whom
Unlimited power abounds, and
For whom the impossible
Does not exist, for His peace
And His mercy are more than
Abundant to provide sufficient
Solace for all your needs.

Positively Stubborn

Adamantly refusing to give up on one’s dreams

But pursuing them, despite the challenges

Or difficulties, that in unrelenting manner, stand

As sentry to prevent the valiant effort of dedication

On the path forward, and attempt to submerge hope

Within the looming and treacherous valleys of despair,

And yet, refusing to lie vanquished, the determined spirit

Still persistently pursuing that which it yearns to achieve,

Negotiating no alternative but committed steadfastness,

Is a commendable positively stubborn attribute that all must

Endeavour to embrace and strive to earnestly uphold, to

Guard one through the rugged terrain of life, to the victorious

Plains of never giving up for want of those dear and personal dreams.

Reflect Nigeria – Failure To Rescue Chibok And Now Dapchi Girls – Who Should We Blame?

Let us consider the equation of democracy. The government of the people by the people for the people.  Thus, the government of the people is accountable to the people. Lest the government obligated to serve the people forget their responsibility because they inhabit the intoxicating corridors of power, they must be reminded, that they are stewards of the people and have a sworn obligation to protect and serve. Therefore, who should be blamed when the country’s children are kidnapped from their school in the middle night, especially when the kidnapping was a foreseeable event, communicated unequivocally in advance by the captors. Who will be blamed when the apparatus of the government, in the wake of the kidnapping, proclaimed that the kidnapping was a hoax thereby squandering valuable time, which otherwise, could have been employed towards a rescue mission. Who will we blame when an international ridicule is made of the country through the spectacle purportedly lamenting the kidnapping of the children.

Should we blame the mothers who lament the loss of their children,

Should the blame be that of the fathers that gnash their teeth,

Or the communities, devastated by the carnage of brutality

Violently uprooting innocence and hope from their midst.

Or should we lay the blame at the feet of the children, who in innocence

Sought advancement through education and the pursuit of dreams,

And now, violated, alienated from hope, are haunted by grim despair.

Nay, we will and should blame the government for the colossal ineptitude.

And how, with callous irony, lies the audacity of the machinery of power, that

Fails its people and then criticizes its people for seeking accountability.
