•Downed & Downer• #GangingCurses

  Life should be about thinking positively even when the negatives are inevitable, but then it’s good to know that life does have happy endings for a larger amount of earths inhabitants. But there are no happily ever after, and that’s because the story continues.

“Life is not a bed of roses, it doesn’t give to you what you expect, you take what you need from life, you earn it, force it out of its hands, just then will it look like a little like bed of leaves, not yet flowers, more or less roses. “
  -Umoh Etido David

   In every true story, tragedy & moments of joy or peace or both are inevitable, and no matter how terrible,(literally & otherwise) a story is, it is someone’s true story.

“Your sufferings today, is no guarantee that you would enjoy or be satisfied tomorrow; for if your sufferings today has nothing to do with you building your tomorrow, then I suggest you pencil down your survival skills of today, because you sure would need them tomorrow. “
  -Umoh Etido David

°°Downed & Downer

  For over 3 & half decades of his life, 93% failure & 7%success, just enough to get him to his current state. Literally a nobody, with senses entangled in thin air & Mother Earth holding on to what remained of him, pulling in deeper & deeper, leaving no chance to her doubts of gravity; apparently 6 feet was a shallow ground. And you ask to tell about Reality? Well here was his.
Waking up to a grumbling stomach, one whom had food rather too little, barely enough to overfeed a mouse; a Reality which had his riches, happiness and fortunes all tied up to the unbeatable reality of a Unicorn. His Reality you say? The cry of “success at last!” With a thoughts striking emotions after a long run of failure, not lasting his lips for 23 seconds before he realizes the truth in disguise. Live’s an ocean, & he’s a dry spot beneath the rock at the bottom; an existing fiction written by the worse author there is to be; that… he was.

  Ganging curses, downed & downer he went, as Mother Earth wouldn’t loose her grip; downed & downer, for he’s days were long over before he was born.

“A corrected mistake in life makes wisdom, Wisdom makes opportunities, Opportunities properly managed makes success; Success built in consistency makes legend. “

Mistake, Wisdom, Opportunities, Success, Legend.

Since I was born, I’ve always heard that salvation is free; well i beg to differ, it is infact the most expensive thing mankind’s ever faced.



“They say nothing good comes easy, and salvation is the best thing to ever happen to man, you dont expect it to be free do you?”

Life’s a market of choices.

One is the choice to live or die,” to have an aborted destiny” you can either choose to be a burden or a blessing; every choice you make in life is a biulding bloc of your destiny, also it serves as a mirror to your destiny; hence make them all count like a good baby sitter #smiles…


The Bible is written for us to learn from; what brought about every pain, joy, uplifment and downfall at the time.

God will never count on your PAST, because He’s after the PRESENT; that His Grace and favour upon your life seems endless, never you take it for granted, for just as HE IS THE MERCIFUL FATHER, HE IS ALSO A CONSUMING FIRE.

Egypt in which the isrealites were held captive is synonymous to the world today, and we are the present day isrealites “thats of course Children of God, not like isrealees in isreal… You know… i’m just saying #chuckles. And the Word of God is our only means and guide through our escape from captivity to the promise land; but often times we look back at the world abandorning His Word, and just as many of the isrealites were consumed and destroyed in the wilderness, so also will Countless of so called Belivers be Consumed in sin and materialism, and at the PEAK of the Journey miss HEAVEN, the Home of God, #chuckles… The Promise Land, our Promised Land prepared by God to House His Children.


And always remember this, The problem dose’nt lie on making a mistake, but in remaining in it. Hope you’ld make the right choices… with yOUR great guide. #wink #BroadSmiles…



Going through my things, in one of my many misplaced notes i found this, and like lifes best moment that night, the 6th day of june 2010 flashed through my memory; i dont knw how i wrote it, but this is what i found in its exact words.

Tonight being the sixth day of june 2010, I Etido David has given my Life to Christ Jesus and never to turn back to my old life style, i promise to follow God with all my life, in truth and spirit, to do his work, win souls for Him and all glory be given unto him.

I have always dreamt of having powers in the tongue, that is being annointed with the holy spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.

The powers in the tongue, when baptised in the Holy Spirit is very powerful; powerful in the sense that no other power, not even that of lucifer the devil is up to the power of the tongue. That is to say, WITH THE POWER IN THE TONGUE I CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS.

I have come to realize that the devil is a very big cheat and has being depriving me of my rightful possesion as a christian.

I just dont wanna be a church goer, i want to Testify the Goodness of God in my life to everybody within my reach, i want that light in me to shine out and reflect in the minds of men that they will know that of a truth God Liveth.

……………. AS A CHILD OF GOD …………….

1. As a child of God, you gain this favour of never lack, but rather bountiful, so that you can give out to those in need.

2. As a child of God, you should be spirit filled and unique amogst others.

3. As a child of God, your difference must be clear. Where ever you find yourself. You should be able to pull out whom God realy is and what he does.

4. As a child of God, you should be empowered, carrying the gene of the Father which is God Almighty; having his ability, to posses what God posseses; like living a life without sin, healing those who need such, giving alms to people, helping to sort out problems when there is a dispute and living like Christ and taking Him as our Brother and Father who died for sins that we might be safe.

5. As a child of God, you should affect someones life, so that soul may have rest and feel comfortable at any point in time.

6. As a child of God, you should be carrying the Trinity in the Heavenly realm, that is carrying the gene of God the Father, finding Joy in our hearts with our Saviour God the Son and also make a dwelling place in our life where God the Holy Spirit can stay and control our life; and we will never think of the worldly things but Heavenly ones, and Heaven alone shall we dwell in eternity.

7. As a child of God, there would be temptations, but no temptation is irresistable after all Jesus never gave into any of the temptation by the devil. I BELIEVE I CAN MAKE IT.

All this have i learnt from the Bible, as i comply may God Almighty see me through.

Hmm…. That was almost 4 years ago, it seems like a few days later all those went down south. I hope i get it right before the end, i hope that Convenant retake its form and course.



For my Dear Country, that which i was born to be part of, that which fate has bestowed upon me, that which i must call home, i but hope…

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where ethnicity and religion will be no barrier to socializing.

I in fact HOPE for a NIGERIA where we’d do away with the title Islam and Christianity, embrace Love and Worship God; for the worse thing that has happened to NIGERIA is religion.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where the 1st, 2nd & 3rd agenda of the government in power will be EDUCATION, EDUCATION & EDUCATION, for it is the Bedrock of any nation.

HOPE for a NIGERIA where we will have Leaders that has the welfare of its followers at heart, & not Rulers that pretend to care.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where an Elected person after an election, will speak to his/her people from the heart, & not from an already prepared script like a Broadcaster.

I Hope for a NIGERIA where godfatherism will hold no water, & people will be selected base on merit.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where figures in all sector will be classified in NAIRA based on our Currency & not Dollars; its really annoying, personally it pisses me off all the time.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where by Persons guilty of Corruption, irrespective of their status, will in less than 1week Investigated, tried in a Court of law & by an Uninfluenced Judgement, if found guilty Sent to Jail for a really long time.

I Hope for a NIGERIA where Power supply will be constant, where the youths get creative and unemployment reduced to the barest minimum.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where our Resources will be properly Utilized & and its Outcome used in Developing our country & her Citizens.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where Democracy rules & not disguised plutocracy.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA where her Citizens would see things the way it is & Tackle it in diverse method but in Unity.

I HOPE for a NIGERIA Bonded in Love, Peace & Unity. One that would Uphold Her Honour & Glory far above all other Nations! Far above the Birds of the Sky!! Far to the very floor of Gods feet.

I but HOPE for a Better NIGERIA, I but HOPE for that GIANT that’s Worth its Name,

I but HOPE for a Brighter, Better & Blossom Nigeria.

I but Hope…

… I but HOPE. God Bless My Father Land, GOD BLESS NIGERIA!


ZE’DEX: Human like creatures with down curved ears

ZE’DEX B’DES: all seven(7) regions of ze’dex

LIMDOLÉS: Silv Realm soldiers, fiercely dressed in gold amours and sword like gods with whips.

DEMILÉS: God and ruler of the
realm and limdolés.

LIM: Commander of the limdolés, answers only to Demilés.

DOLÉS DEAD: The people killed by Limdolés.

SILV REALM: The place of dolés dead.

LINE KILLER: Limdolés assigned to end a particular BloodLine.

Episode: 01

“A top view is seen, seven regions of the colony is on sight looking very tiny from above, like a map, one of the regions is seen in proper view”

“Kids running and playing, women knitting and sewing localy, animals grazing; while some men are sharpening sticks. All people are both Black and White and a happy moment is on view.”

Voice: Before i was born, my people lived in peace of mind? No. But with each other; for we lived in fear of the Limdolés, god Soldiers from the Silv Realm; reducing our race one by one in large number. Without being able to fight back, for our bows, arrows, stones and spears were like hitting Rocks with water in an attempt to smash it. All we could do was run for our dear lifes.

“Intruding the happy moment are the Limdolés; Killings… With arrows aiming, sword slashing and ze’dex screaming in pain; scene ends with man being pierced by arrow from behind.”

Voice cont: But you know, there is one Unique thing about us the ze’dex which differenciates us from the Humans of the outside world… The way we are born.

“a pregnant woman goes on Labour while trying to hide from the chaos, a few women runs towards her, takes her into a more bushy part with gaint leafs, and makes a cover for delivery.”
“Woman gives Birth to a big egg, she raps the egg with her body under the leaf cover for some seconds; there’s a bright blue light shine, visibly from her body to the egg; the egg hatches.”

Voice cont: We are given birth to in eggs and hatch after a great connection from our mothers to their unborn child.

“While voice cont., ze’dex carries baby from the cracked open egg shell, fastens grip of the baby, kisses his forehead; mother stands up, searches for a particular leaf, chews it and uses chewed leaf to clean the babies body, woman comes in hurriedly with straw weaved basket, offers to the mother and runs away.”
“Mother puts Baby into the basket after Breast feeding; while droping baby, there are exclamations every where”
“Mother carries basket and runs out of hiding place; after running out of area , she stumbles after hitting her toe on a rock, basket slips off and falls on a water, floats ina particular direction under some large leafs, mother immediately stands in attempt to find her baby; terribly injured, a loud cry is heard as arrow pierces her from behind. Voice faints in dark”

Voice: You know only the Ze’dex existed in our part of the world before we were joined by Humans; Over a thousand times has different types of people try to take away Our Lands, Women, Children and Our Pride in the name of colonization; but we never held back our defence…

“while voice cont., Ze’dex and Humans fighting in a serious war, bombing every where, arrows, spears and sharp stones all flying in the air aiming at humans in a very thick part of the forest. THIS HAPPENS SHOWING SEVERAL FIGHTS WITH DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.”

Voice conts: and at every time, we always ended up victorious.

“Ze’dex celebrating victory, shouting and jumping from tree’s, beating carved sticks and dancing Wildly”

Voice conts: But something pretty silly did happen; for the first time in 20thousands years of our existence and fighting so called colonizers in our later years, a few captured humans from our last war did succeeded in teaching us english language; but it was all they could do, as our traditions and way of life was too hard to crack and for the first time, history was made as they were allowed by our king to live amogst us as brothers, under a condition of never making atempt to return to their country.

“Captured humans are seen gesticulating as they taught the ze’dex English Language; a few words are heard, then soft slow music while scene continues.”

Voice conts: …But that was a long time ago, my Grandmama told me the story.
“Boy is seen thinking aloud”
Voice conts: My name is Zíbá and here i am as always, before the very stream i was found in;
“Looking into a clean weird stream, several swimming creatures, tiny in size and a straw in his hand”

Voice conts: …living in fear of what will happen next.

“Voice stops. Finaly, Play in proper.”

“He stands up after hearing a sound, a little boy runs past him, he looks at the boy indifferently and turns, group of Ze’dex and humans runs his way Screaming…” LIMDOLÉS!!! He immediately tries to run, but is shot in the chest, he falls into the stream and dies.

“a plane Silver sand desert and under a warm breeze and mild sun, Ziba wakes up feeling dizzy along side over (4000) four thousand Ze’dex and Humans all stark naked.”

Zíbá: What is this place?
Limdolé: “In a very harsh tone” Doles! and no more questions you weakling “gives zedex a hard wipe of his gold whip on the chest”
“Zíbá Faints”

Dont miss episode 2!

This is the most weird dream i’ve ever had in my life. Normaly i do not give a damn abt dreams, but this one from last nyt 26/02/14 was beyond dream.

It was 2010, well i guess so, cus we were all in ss3 in Bwari, after a series of activities, one which included me kissing a girl, cus funny enough boys and girls were in the same hostel.

My frnd Caleb came 2 get me from the room to talk to me on what just happend #TheKissing “That boy sef ehn” lols…

We were walking on the balcony in Abaji house, directly opposite Rubochi which a man was working, i dont knw if he was a Carpenter or an Electrician.

All of a sudden, there was this Huge Image that appeared in the Cloud, i dont knw if it realy was the cloud, cus it was Very close to the Bwari House Roof.

It was an image man, a giant frozen Man that spread His Hands. Caleb and I saw it, every 1 one in the hostel saw it, and then it vanish.

The worker in Ruboch house turned half frozen. Then i ran to the front of Room4 in Abaji and pulled out an Exact image of the frozen man in the cloud, Peopld gathered around me, and it started melting,

From the Spread Out Arms, it melted into a Woman carring a Child; it then melted into a Flam like, with a man in the middle, “One which appeared to being turtued; then it melted into Flame like only; then it melted away.

I remember interpreting it in my dreams, but i dont remember what i said.

Its the weiredest dream i’ve ever had.

They feel and think i’m a fool, too dull, too slow and not articulate;
I’m born into a part of the world where it takes something beyond the ordinary to appreciate talent; where they feel i’m too daft to do what i’ve done, where they doubt the extra ordinary works of your mind.

From the very day i perfected my reading skills in pry. 4, to my Jss3 when i wrote my first Novel and Song at the age of 11; writting quite a number of songs and short stories till my Graduation from High School, when my Love, Lust and Extreme Passion over and for the Work of Literature got to its peak.

I’v done quite a number of things, written poems, songs and composed Hundreds 100s of Mind Blowing text messages “well they told me so”, most of which i dont remember.

I believe i’m a whole package in one, and all i seek is an environment to explore. I’m not a Bad Boy, but neither am i a perfect son.

I’ve got my flaws, a whole lot of it like every other young kid, or may be slightly above. I’m a sinner, i’m not a believer; but i’m a Humble man of Honour. I pray i get the Chance to prove to the world, that i’m not as useless as they think i am, and that i can do things on my own without the help of some people that feels like they’ve done the best, which no other person on earth would do for you; forgetting there is always a person with a worse situation out there.

No one loves to be a failure, not even the Mad Man on the street. But they dont see it that way, they feel i love and enjoy sitting ahome; #Chuckles… My mates are in the Uni; it Hurts the Heart to think of it, thats why i hardly Smile, it’s not hunger, i stayed 6yrs straight up in High school with hunger as my best friend and still i wore a Happy face all the time.

They dont care how you feel, all they care about is their Status amogst their mate, the pride of saying I HAVE KIDS IN THE UNIVERSITZ; They dont realy care about your well being.

The Doctor says i’m suffering from Depression, and that i should deal with it the right way, and stop thinking too much; take life as it is, for its not how fast but how well, although many have been Super Fast and yet Awesome.

Its one thing to be BLIND, and another to have no VISION.

Its one thing to be WATCHFUL, and another to be FOCUSED.

Its one thing to have no HOPE, and another to be HOPELESS.

Its one thing to have no LOVE for someone, and another to HATE someone.

Its one thing to FOLLOW CHRIST, and another to FOLLOW HIS FOOTSTEPS.

Its one thing to worship NO GOD at all, and another to be an UNBELIVER.

Its one thing to be WEALTHY, and another to be LIVING LARGE.

Its one thing to be FREE, and another to have FREEDOM.

Its one thing to DIE, and another to STOP EXISTING.

Its one thing to be a GRADUATE, and another to be EDUCATED.

Its one thing to be LIFELESS, and another to be DEAD.
