Change is the law of life,those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future-John.F.Kennedy.
Am a sucker for change, I often tend to cling and savor onto the past things; most of the time I claim to loathe it but when the things takes a turn for the better am up for delving face down and welcoming the fresh start. Apologies if my political stance has not been somewhat clarified here on out, I dabble a bit and around it. But am here to shed light on the hazardous warning signs that juxtaposed word lit up more recently. I must say that up until now I was a tad bit calm, nursing my battered Good luck wounds, biting my tongue and swallowing my words- Accept the things you cannot change. I had all at bay & was willing to tail the band wagon with my broom, but this incoming dispensation struck a nerve and awakened a greater fear in me much contrast to the previous that constantly swayed me and still left me in penury.(Naija readers will get the point quicker).

We are all to familiar with the saying ‘together we stand, divided we fall’ sure resonates all too loudly; even the Holy Book made us understand that the 'head cannot stand without the neck'. It notable that while the champagne is popping and cupcakes are baking and we, cheering to the beginning of a new era, we all are indeed indignant to one another. Those who aren’t fans of convoluted dictions/metaphors/proverbs might cringe a bit; we have in times past shared in this plight and currently living in a reoccurring realm of life. So much has happened in our lifetime, its odd to just comprehend how much we’ve witnessed-30 years down the line. The crux of the matter lies in breaking down the shattered old barns (masked in inferiority/superiority) and building up a much stronger tower where everyone is whisked along.
However what I pose to you is to pay them no mind, it is only a distraction in achieving set goals as a nation, a ploy to divert our attention from the real enemies; greed, misappropriation of funds etc. a hind sight view on our cores issues. I chime along to the whispers of need, growth ,change chorused by the majority languishing while they indulge on us like board games; we must remain true to ourselves, hoping that the incoming waves hit us real good. Never giving into our lustful longings thereby clouding our sensibility, or toning down on the zeal to thrust ourselves back on and move forward. Am non- partisan in nature-wont start now, but at the risk of making grand prophesies or giving instant gratifications; fact is-we are stuck with a 72 year old for the next four years or more*sniffles* not saying we should expect an eureka moment where everything magically gets fix and in order but it can only take our deliberate cooperation and willingness to good service.
Amy Raves… The moment we start acknowledging each other as equals , the bane in our successes and riveting accomplishments will be completely broken.
P.S As a practicing Chemist and Environmentalist,i thought it wise to showcase practical ways of producing an alternative source of energy. Biomass Briquettes can be useful for virtually all things involving energy(cooking,grilling etc) and it's environment friendly(less emission of carbon monoxide). For more info watch here
