Thank you Phiona for the nomination. And the questions are:-

1. What inspires you?
God.
He ultimately set the bar up so high that even the Air Force 1 can’t reach it. I mean the Dude just said – and there was. That power of belief is just immeasurably immense. Whenever I think about it, I just smile, knowing that man was given the same capability but man would rather do what man does – become ignorant and foolish.

2. When angry how do you react?
It’s okay to be angry, but with anger comes regrettable actions, words, etc. I always look for the logical way out. Was it supposed to go down like that, was it purpose driven or an accident, what could possibly go wrong, what now? I ask myself those questions. Involuntary reactions like disappointment will always be there but anger shouldn’t control you.

3. Why do you blog?
As someone who really sucks at having dialogues with people, I find that writing boosts my immunity to convophobia (inability to talk with people..*just created a word). Yeah, I consider myself as reticent, but I don’t know, I haven’t been tested. I write because words are very powerful, words can heal, destroy, counsel and most importantly can create.

4. What drives you to write?
Like I said earlier, convophobia – really gives me a push. The mysteries of world, things left unexplained, un uttered feelings and emotions, self-preservation.

5. When following someone on social media, what do you consider?
This is the part where I have to state facts…lol
Well, depends on which social media site. But anyway, key factors include;
– Relatable content
– Consistency

In other words, I won’t just follow you because your my friend. hehe

6. Beaching or clubbing?
Many people find this shocking, but I haven’t experienced any of the above.

7. Tall men or short?
Well, I don’t think this was meant for me. But, I like to think of myself as average, though I would totally become a dwarf alongside the 6 – 7 foot people..lol

8. Would you be a guest blogger on my sight?
Yeah sure, I would. Because I sometimes like to challenge myself.

9. What is your 2017 playlist (at least 10 songs.)
Element – Kendrick
Pre Occupied – Jon Bellion
Don’t wanna know – Maroon 5
Fake Love – Drake
Reaper – Sia
Deja vu – J Cole
Powers that be Rozay ft Nas
Don’t let me down – The Chainsmokers ft daya
The fire – The Roots ft John Legend
Woke the Fuck Up – Jon Bellion

10. What do you think about the content on my blog and me?
I’m not gonna lie, there is this pellucidity that keeps me hooked.

11. Your favorite books?
Samanta’s Schweblin – Fever Dream.
Katie Kitamura – A Separation
Donald Antrim – Elect Mr. Robinson for a Better World

Thank you.

A nomination will be made soon.

“The Fire”

Today I woke up to a text with an attached audio from one human,
the kind that you cross their mind once in a solar eclipse.
Anyway, the audio was just inspiring and the beat was the
kind I vibe with: So I decided to share;

[John]
There’s something in your heart
and it’s in your eyes
It’s the fire, inside you
Let it burn
You don’t say good luck
You say don’t give up
It’s the fire, inside you
Let it burn
[Black Thought]
Yeah, and if I’m ever at the crossroads
and start feeling mixed signals like Morse code
My soul start to grow colder than the North Pole
I try to focus on the hole of where the torch goes
In the tradition of these legendary sports pros
As far as I can see, I’ve made it to the threshold
Lord knows I’ve waited for this a lifetime
And I’m an icon when I let my light shine
Shine bright as an example of a champion
Taking the advantage, never copping out or cancelling
Burn like a chariot, learn how to carry it
Maverick, always above and beyond average
Fuel to the flame that I train with and travel with
Something in my eyes say I’m so close to having the prize
I realise I’m supposed to reach for the skies
Never let somebody try to tell you otherwise

[Black Thought]
One love, one game, one desire
One flame, one bonfire, let it burn higher
I never show signs of fatigue or turn tired
cause I’m the definition of tragedy turned triumph
It’s David and Goliath, I made it to the eye of
the storm, feeling torn like they fed me to the lions
Before my time start to wind down like the Mayans
I show ’em how I got the grind down like a science
It sounds like a riot on hush, it’s so quiet
The only thing I hear is my heart, I’m inspired
by the challenge that I find myself standing eye to eye with
Then move like a wise warrior and not a coward
You can’t escape the history that you was meant to make
That’s why the highest victory is what I’m meant to take
You came to celebrate, I came to cerebrate
I hate losing, I refuse to make the same mistake

“The Fire” The Roots feat. John Legend.

2:00am note

Saen

A little sleepy, but mostly sad

A trace of a fast heart beat, so maybe I’m mad

“Breathe in baby! Get a hold of your calm

Clear out your mind, do not play the detective card!”

There I go again pushing the gag

I fight with my mind to keep you in my heart

But lately I’ve been a recipient of your phony act

If you can’t see how much I’m trying, you’re better off in my past
