To see the sky
To see the sun and moon
And the tiny stars in the black of a man's
Sometimes in the morning
I'll look across myself
See hills and valleys forming
Think of rivers underground.
I am blooming
Inside I am dry
If only I could understand
The reason for my crying
If only I could stop this fear
Of dreaming that I'm dying.
culled from The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer.
Currently reading the book and loving it, she is a mirror to my inner self

Spent the weekend attending parties, Omo no be small thing oh.
I have been told to make my weekend fun, parties, particularly weddings was top of the list.
So I decided to attend this one, the bride is some chick I met a while ago. We were not friends per se, but one of my friends is close to her and he said we should go.
The exchange of vow was in a garden over looking the sea.
No church, every thing took place in the garden.
The atmosphere was sooooooooo lovely.
I think am sooooooo gunning for a garden wedding.
The Husby is one omo jaiye-jaiye;
It was written all his face, I need no sooth-Sayer to tell me that.
Confirmation was later given by those who knew him.
The Bride had this I could have done better look on her face...
She was all smile during the ceremony...But on a closer look, she looked sad. So unhappy, Like this is the only opportunity I had to tie the knot and become a Mrs.
The couple were still at the reception way after most guest had gone...
No be Couple dey first leave venue,
They had this I am dreading the night together.
maybe the effect of having lived together for more almost or is it more than 2 years
But I hear say the chick no gree do anything with the guy
I no just understand for the couple...
Husby was busy carrying drinks for his friends,
wify siddon with dey look with forced smile on her face.
I just hope the wedding last, because, for what ever reason, they just did not act like people who were really that in to each other anymore.
Maybe am just imagining things, but I always know that I am Happy and I really want this look

It has been a bunch of waves for me
I have searched high and low and found nothing,
Tried all I can and end up loosing,
Been everything ......and still be nothing,
It took me a long while to get out of the murky hole of nothingness
But one day i finally find that one thing, I have searched for,
I finally found gold at the end of the cloud
and the silver lining at the bottom of the mine field
and I had my EUREKA moment.
It was definitely worth it the wait.

Okay the wind of change is blowing real fast and
I guess have been caught on awared.
Saw Soldiers on the Marina end of the Eko brigde this morning and
I got to me that this whole Militant issue is getting serious more and more.
I do not even read the papers which lies around in my office any more
not to talk of watching TV.
Abeg, make them no carry their war reach lagos oh!
Now to my gist.
My mum is back in town and am so happy
I have had to compulsorily move over to my aunts since I started this job of mine.
Okay, my mum does not the job and most of all she does not like the fact that I have to move.
The thing is living with my aunt come attached with a lot of shit.
I mean a lot of shit!!!!
You can be accused of anything,
I mean anything; those cousins of mine sure can lie.
Except caught in the act, they would never say the truth.
I really respect them on that one.
Even give them award self.
My aunt has always been the comfortable one,
The one every one goes to meet.
Don’t know, what is happening in their office, but I think there has been a change in structuring,
So she does not make money again as before
It’s not like we all really know how good the place is,
Because the woman has always been complaining,
For as long as I can remember, she has never made money in that place
Yet, she sees something to renovate in her house all the time.
She is the kind of person who only wants good things for herself and family only
And the rest of you come beg her
This gives her the opportunity to insult and wash one down.
The woman done lie so te, every one don tire.
There is never money, and now that she is actually telling the truth,
no one belives.
The situations has gone so bad or
rather the woman wants those of us staying with her to know that things have changed.
No more everyday cooking.
The worst was on Tuesday, when we had to eat Okro soup,
No meat, no menden-mende.
Okro soup in my aunts was always a delicacy.
Eating meat with it self is Ojukokoro as there is already enough in it.
The Okro was tasteless and you had to really look for the tiny fish inside.
I hope and pray that it does not pass this level oh.
Wetin we go dey chop then.
Maybe she is even using style to tell those of us wey get house to dey find our level.
Anyways time will tell.

He did not just hang up on me,
He was mumbling some things I could not hear.
Network has been really crazy lately
But this one no be network problem,
except i want to deceive myself!!!
This is the same guy who called me two days ago,
accusing me of dumping him after i slept with him.
Okay rewind back to life,
just when i wanted to believe, he not like the rest of the pack.
We were actually playing this who calls first game or so i thought,
I actually don't know the reason why i decided to call him today.
He took me to that place and left me hanging.
He gave me that thing i have always longed for.
I no blame am, na my fault.
Will give you the gist of he and me later
Anyways no regrets because I enjoyed every bit of our acquittance....
