HAPPINESS


If I could tell what exactly makes me happy, I would write a book
Even writing a book would not even tell exactly what makes me happy, because if it could then I would have owned a bookshop by now
But then, even If I can’t say in words, I think I have seen happiness in a person With all the understanding and definitions I have and I have heard about happiness am still left in amazement of how seeing just one person could be the exact reflection and definition of what happiness really is…
But still, I can’t say in words, Cos how do I really explain, expatiate, elucidate, the fact a person makes me happy And how do I begin to format, unlearn and totally delete all other definitions I have
had about happiness when this one am experiencing now is totally opposite of what I
knew before…
So you see why I can’t write a book about Happiness, what makes me happy…I fear it’ll only confuse you. Even my oral expression of Happiness will put you in a deeper dimension of where you will be the definition of confusion because this one is better experienced than explained So tell me what happiness means to You.. Let’s see if I can relate.

Youth arising

Often I think of beautiful countries and how much I can’t wait to leave mine…

Often my thoughts go up and down and I wonder why..

My Nations goes up and down..

Green & White…

But the green is faded and the white is gray..

Still I seem to be helpless because…

I am young and my future seems to be a tomorrow that never comes..

Unity

I have seen how far strength have taken a man to

I have seen how far pursuit have taken a man to

I have seen how far drive have taken a man to

I have seen how much energy a man have put into his daily effort to make him better

I have also seen all that a man does to conquer all aspects of his life

Yes I have seen all that can come from a Man

So by all this a man can make boast in himself

His achievements and realities are prove that the boast are real anyway

But if he only he knew that all his achievements are half of what would have been the initial achievements if he was not doing them alone

There is strength in been alone

But there is greater Strength in been together

There is a lot you can achieve alone no doubt

But imagine the energy is doubled,

Think of the achievements that will emerge…

You can downplay alot of stuffs in life

But you can never downplay that place of *UNITY*

Unity is the force that bonds and bonds different people together..

Unity is the drive that brings about unimaginable success and achievements..

Unity is the foundation of which any successful family, empire and anything that requires building is built upon..

Unity is what brings a common Goal among uncommon persons..

Unity is the defense a house have against any obstacles…

Unity is the true definition of Man

Unity is not just a word

Unity is a force

Unity is fierce

Unity is strength

Unity is a defense

Unity is a foundation

Unity is an edge

Unity is a tool

Unity is the goal

Unity is of God

Unity is from God

Unity is God

Unity is God

Good needed it

Man needs it

United we stand

Divided we fall

Unity is Life

Every now and then,

All my body springs alive,

Deep thoughts quivers between my eyes and mouth,

speeches too deep to uttered

Flies like a wild thing across my body,

Leaving my eyes half-empty, and clamorous …

But what can these help?

They say we are the leaders of tommorrow but they break our marrows with insecurity, bad governance amongst others..

And I wonder.. 

If we will end of being the leaders of this tommorrow or just “readers” of it.

So I arise!

You arise!

Youths arise!

In an economy of hardship, everything suffers

Good people turn thieves, sluts and scammers

Comeout enmass and rebuild tonnes of fortunes.

Leaders of credibilities let’s fight bad governance

Step out of your shells, enough of the oldies

The horses of unity are wallowing into the forest

The youths are the strength of the political mouths

Enough of the red bloods spilling dirty soils…

All the fear that makes shiver runs through my spine seems to have disappeared…

Cos I see Youths arising!

Strong

Courageous

Bold

Fearless

Determined…

In the rage to make a better Nigeria

I see Youths Arising!

The strength of the majority

I grew up being the most brilliant boy in my family

The brilliant streak followed me to school…

Any subject/course that I was not the best at, the lecture would be summoned to panel to face query

That’s because my intelligence made all the teachers had a soft spot for me

Most at times teachers/lectures consult me before theories teaching time to have one mind with me before they start teaching

Probably because I have embarrassed many by publicly correcting them in class..

I was well respected in school

I was one of the most talked about student in school

And you know been brilliant made me had access to positions early enough

I think that was a plus for having brains..

Well, I can say I was a little bit pompous

I had no friends, basically I literally thought none of them were to my level..

Many approached yet I turned all down little did I know that I had entered the black list of many just by my pompous activities…

One faithful day an external Lecturer sent from the government entered our class and gave us an assignment

With my expertise in academics and with my well known and approved brilliant nature I came up with a very powerful and intriguing idea..

The next day we were all sitting with excitement awaiting him to come, so we could deliver the answers and definitely I was the most executed one…

Talk of the devil we whispered because he walked in and said who has his answer without hesitation I lifted up my hand and spoke…

He applauded me loudly and I thought I had nailed it and that’s was all..

Then I saw Kelvin standing.,

I said to myself Kelvin have never spoken in class and by the way he is one of the dullest person in the class

so I don’t care..

And he spoke as expected but to my greatest Surprise he had a louder applause from our fellow students

Still lost in thought about the applause he got then the lecturer asked the rest students which one of the two answers should we take before I knew it the class standing and shouting “Kelvin”!

but the lecturer reminded them that mine was more intelligent and interesting..

 Although they kept on shouting Kelvin and the lecturer had no choice than to go with them and he made a statement that changed my life since then..

He said “I know you are brilliant,

Your idea was superb,

And I am so sure the nation will be waiting for idea like yours to be better…

But MAJORITY ALWAYS WIN”

The teacher also said

“it is dangerous to stand alone no matter what you know Go for Majority for there is STRENGTH IN MAJORITY”.

The power of will

We have been trained to be builders of a whole lot of things..

We have to been trained to follow the success of other people…

We have been equipped with knowledge on how not to fail in our various field..

Which has been a great system of training except for the fact that men have been giving as our drive and destination..

We get to hear different legends and how we can be like them…

So as I sit on my bed in the cool of the day I ponder and wonder what actual impact men make in various field..

Still pondering..

Lost in thought and in deep meditation

Boom

It came

I caught it

I shouted “Eureka”( I have found it)

I discovered how we have been thought to build nations

We have been trained on how to make our nation a better place as the day goes by

But

I also discovered that we were kept in the dark of how to build on of the best nation which is

Our “IMAGI-NATION”

This is it…

This is where the *will power* of men resides

This is where the strength of men dwells

This is where the unending drive of men are birthed

This is the secret of the distinguishing factors of Men

The Power of Will is the Secret to any greatness

The only thing a man needs is a determined will,

rounded on a clear order of ranks of values,

coupled with organic strength of outlook will also one day despite all the hindrances will enforce its realization in all domains..

The power of will is a timeless possibility,

it can attract all that enters…

Now I know what we were rubbed of when we were taught..

We were taught the greatness of men but we were never thought their secret..

Now I have found the Secret

I don’t want to be like anybody anymore

I want to be the best of Myself

I will keep developing my will power

I will keep making use of my will power

I will always keep my will sane

Because where there is a will there is balcony of possibilities..

So therefore

I AM POSSIBLE

I AM POSITIVE

I HAVE A WILL

I HAVE POWER

THE POWER IS IN THE WILL!

THE POWER OF WILL!
