Democracy.

 

 

governmental-or-popular

 

A myth or what  ?

Each time I think of Africa,

Democracy Comes to my mind,

I am rooted in Africa,

I know Africa and speak and argue

On Africa.

 

A Nation with historical contexts,

Rich and blessed.

A Nation that had a System,

Culture and ways before

She was stolen and disbalanced ,

In the Name of civilization.

 

Civilization   marginalised her,

Gave Her a new identity ,

Changed Her to be strange ,

Strange to all it has known before,

 

The rule and order,

The peace, harmony, unity and good

Governance became estranged,

Forbidden and taboo.

 

The called their domineering rule

Democracy,

Which demo-crazed they few,

Who had the leadership

What does the word Democracy mean for Africa !.

 

For Africa !

It is confusion ,a strange situation

Camouflaged for the big Lords as they

Are known,

 

Mr President!

I `m Democracy,

But I practiced

Dictatorship under the umbrella of

Democracy.

 

Take power rule your style,

Be in Office even when all are crying wolf,

Born a president, ruled as a president ,

Died as a president ,

And be buried as a president,

That is their game,

A theatre for good actors like

Most African leaders.

 

That is Democracy in most African

countries.

Even when People are oppressed,

It is in our eyes Democracy,

 

Demo-cracy or demo-crazy !

Whatever ,

It is a word  that have a different

Style of ruling in Africa ,

 

I acknowledged freedom,

We had it,

My forefathers had a fair system

System that had dignity ,Fairness and respect,

system that had its Name and weight.

 

I respect the roots ,that were then seen in families,

Communities, kins, among friends and comrades,

 

What does  the word Democracy mean  today!

In Africa ?

In Nigeria ?

 

Nhhhhhhh !

Opaque,

Mean, demoralising,

Intimidating and suppressing

an Arena for the fittest,

with careless styles ,

Greedy  and corrupt old leaders,

Democracy  for all,

Is today for few………………………

How mighty are You “Corruption “.

281be63fcf9ef697abeedace4fef28fb

 

” See our beauty, robbed and enveloped with corruption “.

 

Everything is made imperfect with You ,

With You an  old System   overpowers

Progress.

 

Why are you drowning your People?

Setting them back another century ?,

Cutting through the meals of your People,

And stealing and looting from them ?

 

I ask You !

Where is your conscience ?

Or  do you want to remain a cheater and a looter for life ? ,

Hiding millions and billions in cemeteries,

When your wards can’t even feed ?,

 

Your youths are hopeless without future

And are falling into the Hands of criminals

And joining your Long existing Institution ,

 

Are you not worried at what  you are doing in Nigeria ?,

Your People are dying because they Money meant

For them are shared and looted,

 

No good Food, no good roads, no good hospitals

And not even educational Institutions that could

Have  shown them light ,

 

How mighty are you corruption !

That your Name sends chills on People ,

You are the only heartless Thing that can

Rob the masses of what belongs to them

Including their freedom ,

 

Not only have you robbed them of

Their natural wealth called Mineral

resources,

You have even sold, dealed with foreigners

To steal from people´s purses,

 

Even their conscience you hold in ransom,

You  are the only Thing that have the

Intimidating Spirit to send People to work

And leave them hungry,

Teachers are asked to work and are not paid ,

Those meant to rule, you steal their conscience.

And turn them enemies of Progress and looters of

all times

 

Haba! Mr corruption !

You made everyone that have the guns and Money

To Parade freely and oppress ,

discriminate , dominate and intimidate those you

Should protect,

Kidnapping have become like a normal trading

Where human beings are priced and are exchanged back with Money.

 

How Long !

Do you want to torment this Nation ?,

Mr. Corruption,

We want to ignore You , but we can’t,

Because your hold widens the gap

And allow Tensions grow,

Fears abound , because of your presence,

 

Wall of silence is built around ,

Rigid faces mask around,

Oh Corruption  I abhor you,

 

Leave and let Africa rise.

 

The insatiable nature of Man.

 

 

” For the love of Money is root of  all Kinds of evil .

Some People eager for Money, have wandered from the

faith and pierced themselves with many griefs ” – 1 Timothy 6-10,in New International Version ).

 

Many want to be rich without hard honest works,

Many have fallen apart and gotten into illegal ways

of being rich,

Some became foolish and stupid and are blinded by quest to be

the best guy,

The richest with best houses , good cars ,

Someone who can travel everywhere,

Get into everywhere,and be feared everywhere.

What can love of Money and the Feelings of not having

enough not do ? .

 

Some have killed, even duped their families,

kidnapped for Money,

Leaders are burying Money  in secret places,

Money meant for their People !.

Haba !, what happens after all These quest,

All These Riches without a good Name ?.

All these love for Money,

A bad love for uncertain treasure,

Endless torments awaits you ,

 

Some guys have died a foolish death,

Gotten into traps and are in prisons,

Do not get into robbery, do not get into kidnappings,

And do not get into unclean riches.

These illegal ways dont last.

 

There are so many ways of making clean Money,

Get honest, go the right way  ,hope,

Pray hard , and be optimistic

Set a good clean and attainable Goals,

Remain true to yourself,

Surround yourself with positive

good People,

 

Thank God and be satisfied with You,

You dont have any Need to please others,

Neither do you have any Need to be someone else

Stop comparing yourself to others,

You are you, with God on your side  ,

 

” Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth ,

where moth and rust destroy,

And where thieves break in and steal “- Matthew 6:19

 

 

 

 

The truth must someday be told.

Never mind,

we all make mistakes,

We all have being  gossiped about,

Things have chanced in our lives,

Some were meant to be,

Some happened and no one will

Believe your side,

But never mind

Believe in You,

They will try to bring you down,

Slander  and thrash you,

They will succeed in pulling your Name,

But  one ting am very sure of is —

They will never succeed the wrath of truth being

told one day –

This One Thing am sure of,

No matter how Long it takes,

The truth will always prevail.

You are my dream, and God will deliver You to ME “.

 

” Work hard for what you want,

because it wont come to you

Without a fight.

You have to be strong and courageous and know that

you can do anything you put your

mind to .

If somebody puts you down or criticizes you

Just Keep on believing in yourself,

Turn it into something positive “-   Leah LaBelle .

 

Looks hard sometimes to stay put to your dreams,

Even when it looks so close,

I stretched my hands and i hear sorries ,

 

I Struggle everyday,

Stumbles and no answers will come,

You hear sometimes, sorry we can’t now,

 

Give yourself no option,

Stay true to your dreams,

Accept that nothing comes easy,

Dont fail  to give all your best,

 

Believe it ,

No matter how hard the battle is,

No matter how long it takes,

Hope, faith in God, optimism,

Will lead you there.

I waited patiently,

I refused to worry,

I believe

For I am not giving you up,

 

You are my dream,

And with God I will realise YOU.

We are not the same.

 

Dont judge me,

Understand  me ,

Don t condemn me ,

Try to Understand me ,

 

I may have judged others in the past ,

But today i know it is not right,

And I am sorry,

 

My journey is not your journey,

Your journey remains yours.

It might mean nothing to you,

But it means a lot to me,

And yours is also important to you,

 

It is my journey,

I am mindful,

I am grateful,

I am positive,

I am optimistic,

Because it is my journey,

A journey that has led  me ,

And  is still leading me

To new Chapters .

We are not the same,

Our journeys are not the same,

Because we are not the same.
