If you can bear it, you have not reached your limit yet.
You are stronger than you think…
Don’t give up now!
“You open Your hands
Says the Word.
I have waited long
For their opening
They never did
If I take what they have withholden from me
I wonder how long I’d have it
Will it be mine forever?
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
By William Earnest Henley
Fear of poverty
Fear of of failure
Fear of acceptance
Fear of being stripped of power
Fear of tomorrow
Fear of the unknown
Fear of death
Fear makes people see what they want to see
Fear makes people see evil in every faces, evil in one another, evil where it does not exist
They lust for what they can’t have; what they shouldn’t have.
Fear is the real evil.
Unmask fear and conquer all evil
Like an undecided ghost
I lingered on the threshold of two worlds
Lost in the silence of their million miles
I waddled through thick fog and fiery furnace
They passed through me a zillion times
They left no traces of their passage
Save their tales on my lips
To touch a million and more lives
UCHE is a young vibrant guy who had his leg crushed in a ghastly automobile accident almost two years ago. He eventually lost his leg due to poor medical facilities within his locality. He had contemplated suicide but with divine intervention, he’s gradually turning his life around.
Due to Uche’s past medical expenses, he and his siblings, who are orphans, are currently out of school.
Uche has discovered his passion for life despite his circumstances and he aspires to having a career in the music industry.
Uche needs a prosthetic leg. You can help Uche by contributing towards procuring this much needed aid.

The beauty of life
is in letting it find you
don’t search for answers;
don’t peep into the future
you might not like what
The path of life is a mystery
the excitement is in the suspense.
I would like to appreciate bjgaulton : Toutons Tubas and Other Tales for for nominating me for this award. Thank you so much.
I was born and raised in Nigeria in Ibadan. I studied English at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria . I love writing, reading, teaching, exploring and shopping. I like making people happy, kids and nature. I love watching sunset. I dislike injustice, oppression and discrimination of any kind.
Blogging to me is a medium of expressing my thoughts, feelings and opinion. It is a way to socialize and connect with different people over the world through the web.
I found blogging or it found me at a time when I was almost caught off from the rest of the world. When my social life was reduced to zero, through it I was able to vent, reconnect and heal. I have met so many people who share the same passion and dream with me and they have helped and encouraged me a lot.
Blogging has helped me to improve my writings, overcome blocks, procrastination and be engaged in something meaningful.
