Taking Your Chances.

Let me start this by saying I am a Chelsea fan! And I am still delirious over our most recent accomplishment; winning the UEFA Champions League! Yeah we did, we defied every prediction and I cant even imagine how many people would have lost bets placed on Barcelona or Real Madrid to reach the finals, but against all odds and out of the blues(pun intended), We beat arguably the best team in the world and went ahead to lift the much coveted trophy.

Just some months ago, I told my uncle I was never going to watch another Chelsea match till we were able to win 3 matches in a row because I was really pissed at the team and their conversion rate, too much errors on the field of play, zero confidence on the part of the strikers(uncle Torres), so my decision wasn’t baseless. The Exodus of Andre Villas-Boas and the Genesis of Roberto Di-Matteo resulted in a previously unthinkable turn around in results with the same team. Miraculous right?

People keep saying Chelsea doesn’t deserve to win but I see it differently and not just because I’m a fan. Just hear me out, Chelsea came back to overturn a 3-1 deficit against Napoli to emphatically win 4-1 in the second leg and secure qualification to the Semi Finals where we progressed to win against Barcelona. In the first leg, the lone Drogba goal was scored in 46nd minute(extra time). On the second leg, Ramires scored in the 47th minute (extra time), Torres scored the second goal of the match in the 92nd minute(in case you didn’t notice EXTRA TIME). When you start seeing a pattern to randomness, is it still randomness? Even in the final match against Munich, Chelsea’s goal came in extra time. Suffice to say there is a method to this madness.

That right there is a team who recognized the odds and played against them, they knew their opponents and came with a custom suited plan that assured victory. They defended all through the match but when the chances came(however little), they took it and the rest of the STORY is now hiSTORY. So my word to you is always take your chances, some get many, some get few but whenever you see a chance and you don’t take it, don’t bitch when someone else does and takes the prize.

This is a very multifaceted something o, you see a girl sitting in the corner alone, you look …gawk and do nothing, then one boy goes there and says the lamest of things and the girls goes with him, if I hear you complain, I will put sandpaper in your singlet. You had your chance, and you didn’t take it, somebody else did, so shut the hell up.

Chelsea has won the Champions league for the first time in their 107 years not because they play the best soccer on the continent(they don’t), not because they have the best team(all those group of agbayas) or the best coach(interim boss for that matter) but it all comes down to one simple thing – Taking Your Chances.Image

i saw this picture online and laughed…but its kinda true when you take your chances.

On Your Knees

Its cold out here, its basically freezing.

I check myself, and i’m still breathing.

The chill in my bones has them rattling.

Alone,against an enemy i cant see i’m battling.

The sun is nowhere to be found.

I listen hard but can hear no sound.

Where am i? I have to ask.

And leaving here my next task.

Powerless is how i feel.

Like a punctured soccer ball with no air fill
Till i realised with a sudden jolt.

The freezing out can be traced back to the halt.

That point when  one becomes complacent.

You neither Pray nor on the word meditate
A quick mumble on your bed isnt sufficient.

Cos the enemies we fight dont walk, they levitate.

And you cant compete not to talk of winning.

If you go around ‘living the life’ and sinning.

The enemy is well aware of that fact though.

So he doesnt bother u while in that hole.

Deluded you think All Is Well.

Know you not that the love of the owner of a chicken.

All ends at the door of the kitchen?

He knows you, but do you know him well?

The goal of the enemy Is that you dont know who you are.

The son of the king, the bright and morning star.

Where is your scepter, where is your crown?

There is your throne, why are you down?

Get back on your knees, where infinite power is.

Open the closed book, and from its pages glean.

God has a plan for this life of yours.

You cant live it while crawling on all fours.

With the prayer of faith and wisdom.

Aligning to the will of His kingdom.

Comes indeterminable strength for victory.

Looking onto Christ, begin an unending winning spree

Her Right To Know

Hushed whispers, profane thoughts.

Insane desires and irate deeds.

A dirty past, memoirs on the wall.

The iridescent twinkles on the path forward.


No man is an island, hence bridges.

The morning cry of partridges.

Is nothing but a call for freshness.

To Break the bounds of loneliness.


Oh seek, and do find.

That which makes you happy.

Remembering that what goes around.

And doesn’t come around goes away.


She’ll be gone sooner or later.

If the slate isn’t wiped clean.

The past is past but it doesn’t stay there.

Whether or not it’ll come back to bite your nutty behind.

Depends on how much she knows.


Secrets’ll find their way out.

Control the response by being in charge.

Because She has a right to know.

So she can decide how far she wants to go.


Or if she wants to go at all.

Hand in hand you write.

And fill the slate with your tale.

What it’ll be you decide.

A lullaby, jazz or mettalic rock.


Whichever it is, take comfort in this fact.

The past isn’t hidden, its right before us.

With pen to paper, we sign this pact.

To build together, the future for US.


This is for couples whether old or new, secrets will keep secreting for as long as you keep them. One day, it’ll reach critical mass and precipitate into something so strong it’ll put a wedge in between you. It may well be the end of the relationship.

If you dont tell her cos u dont wanna lose her or vice versa, you may think you are doing the right thing, but when the truth comes to light, it’ll be more disastrous.

But a question for you,

Are There Parts of One’s Past That Must Never Be Revealed To One’s Partner? Or Is ALL To Be Revealed’

So ladies and gentlemen, what is the cat still doing in the bag?

The Sun Has Escaped

The Sun Has Escaped

Long trapped in its ageless rhythm.

The East-West path we’ve all come to know.

And associate with constancy.

But who knew, that the Sun had something else in mind.

From the East it rises & to the West sets.

The normal in the word normalcy.

As long as the world has been.

This cycle has never failed, not once.

But who knew the sun has no choice.

The smiling face attributed to it isnt really his.

He never stops circling endlessly.

Giving light to all and warmth to sundry.

BREAKING NEWS: The Sun Has Escaped!

And its itinerary is…..quite different.

Its decided to halt its East-West route.

Maybe head to the North pole and stay put.

Dont expect the sun from the east tomorrow.

It woulp probably want to try something new.

The north and south are equally enticing.

Which it would choose, i do not know.

On its new path it seems.

He would try to reach the sun-starved regions.

To spread the heat bottled inside.

And see equality to all.

The Sun isnt really a ‘bad boy’.

His escape isnt an exuberant ploy.

Its an attempt to satisfy all.

If only he knew, it is an impossible task.

Negative Positivism

You know that kinda ‘it will be  well’ shrug when you are faced with something really gargantuan? U are swamped by the reality of it that you don’t see the solution. It’s there alright, probably staring you in the face or shouting out your  name ‘i’m here’. But your disposition isnt open to solution, but you are so used to moving on, and that’s what you do.  Problem unsolved, but you go about things normally as if the roof ain’t burning which is a positive thing right? But its negative cos it doesn’t solve the problem, as a matter of fact, the problem keeps raging on like a forest fire in dry season.

Instead, look for the answers, enter the burning house if you have to, the fire extinguisher may still be hanging on the wall. The positive thing would be ‘thanking God you are alive’ while you stand by and watch d building get razed to the ground. Its negative in that on your way out, you might have gotten the extinguisher and fought the fire. Herculean task? Yes of course. But you’ll be amazed at how the innocent by-standers and righteous onlookers would turn
comrades and join you fight the fire. You wouldn’t know where the buckets of water and hoses would come from.

Which brings to mind the saying ‘heaven helps those who help themselves’.i.e. Help arises when you arises. But if you stand and watch, they will do the same and feel your loss and you been d positive dude/girl programmed to rise after every fall (which is right), stay positive when all looks downright bleak, just keep moving on.

But a little retrospection wouldn’t hurt would it? What to learn from it all? Lets even say the building even did burn down, at least you went down fighting. The message is simple, face your fears, fight your battles. its life! you win some you lose some, but make sure you don’t lose the war. Solve the problem before you move on if you cant. don’t let your default mode be ‘run’ when the problem can be ‘solved’. you may not see it instantly, but look for it. remember when there is a will, there is a way. And if you don’t see it and you get burnt, then once beaten becomes twice shy

From My Hollow of Hollows – Dear Friend

The sacred altar has been smashed.

Insane pleasures cashed.

At the bank of a treasured friend.

Bringing to a short end, the frienship of many years.

The times will fade,
mere spittle in an ocean.

But that which remains

is unimaginable pain and anguish.

Ever constricting my heart
whenever i set them upon you.

I look into those eyes,
which once held the flame of my undying love.

Cold dark glass it has become, every light it absorbs.

Those lips which once said my name.

And sent ripples of concordant pleasure down my back.

Now produces nothing but utter disdain.

Be gone from me, strange woman.

The you i knew is long gone.

Long lost in the throes of blissful pleasures.

With a dear friend equally treasured.

My eyes have long emptied their tear sacs.

My heart is now the hollow of hollows.

To be or not to be is a question i cant answer.

From hence, i know not the path to follow.

My dear friend i forgive you.

And wish you much pain than you caused me.

I’m just repaying what you did me

cos So says the good book


P.S. A lover who satisfied herself with her lover’s best friend
