•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. “

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.
