THE END OF OUR FRIENDSHIP

we met some years back
and our friendship we marked
we boarded the ship
our very own friendSHIP.

we talked
and hugged
smiling,
laughing.

you became my shadow
everywhere i go;
i laid bare my soul
for only you to know.

we shared gossips and secrets
like two friends sharing sweets,
how i laugh now at my stupid self
trusting you like a new born calf.

then you turned and stabbed
all my secrets you blabbed;
not just in my back
but straight to my heart.

i didn’t even see my heart bleed
till you stuck the knife in deep;
then i heard myself fall
and hit the wall.

in that moment…..
i knew the ship had sunk
our friendship,
our very own friendSHIP had sunk.

and we were no where close to shore.

GET SET! GO!!!!

Last month October, 15th to be precise I clocked 20, birthdays are supposed to be fun filled with laughter right? Well mine was a whole different story more like a disaster. You see I lost my phone 3 days before……actually it was stolen during an exam. So I had already started to mourn my phone before my birthday. To cut the story short, I didn’t get any of expected and long anticipated birthday wishes, phone calls, and text messages. All the plans made were shattered because there was no way to contact me – the celebrant. So as the very annoying day went ahead which unfortunately happened to fall on a Saturday without the distraction of phone calls and all, I was left alone with myself which led to reflection on myself as a person. I was trying to see myself as other people would. My mind wandered farther I found myself thinking of any accomplishment I might have made and I realized that a thousand times I had made plans to go ahead with some kind of project even went as far as getting the materials needed for such project then at the “key” moment I would back down.

Some would say 20 is too young for a person to start thinking of such, but as absurd as it sounds the age 20 is probably the last stage where a person can think of himself or herself without other distractions like money , work etcetera. So I am simply saying that it’s like a last chance to look back before you leap into the adult world. So there I was thinking about my life and I decided to do something about my life before it ran way , before I lost control of it , before it was no longer mine alone, before anything I did would not just affect me alone but those in my life as well . The birthday passed of course, it was a big relief but my thoughts stayed with me. The next few days I got really scared that I had wasted a lot of time as I had always had this dream of being a successful person so I thought I had no way of achieving that anymore when time had slipped past me. I’m not a star student or a club president or anything of that category so I thought I had no foundation to start from even if I wanted to be serious. But here I am the 1st of December exactly 12:00 am, eyes wide open. pounding on my laptop and I have decided to raise my head and figure a way out knowing I would meet with resistance from people, even though I know I might break shed some tears or a lot of tears whatever the case may be but I know giving up isn’t an option .My life is an exam and I’ve got just two options A} succeed B} SUCCEED
