This Piece is for every creative person out there. I’d like to believe we all are, but some more than the others. Therefore, if you find yourself among the gifted ones, make good use of God’s gift to you. Light up the World with it!


Pointless pieces of information.
Meant to mislead the unwary.
Potentially into perpetual misery.
Perpetrated by masters of deception.

Aura of silence, permeating everything.
Insiduous gloom potentially life-threatening.
The result of continous pummelling of creative senses.
Nipping at the bud all such advances.

Unbeknown of its essence.
They chip at it until it’s stifled.
And Dead! As by a sniper rifled.
What would have been pivotal to outstanding success.

Don’t do this or that they say.
What do you want people to say?
When you grow up, you’ll see.
That all these are meant to favour thee.

Its too risky, dont throw your life away.
Listen to the words the elders say.
If you want a real life, get a real job.
Forgetting that the collar chokes as that of a dog.

Embrace your creativity, let it shine.
Don’t let others dictate the use of what’s thine.
On the wings of limitless success you’re meant to climb.
Dont throw it all away on a dime.

Lies that’ll take you off your way.
Listen not to their alluring sway.

For you are a light that must shine.
Therefore SHINE ON!!!

I for one believe that God makes no mistakes (Durhhh, He is God), and that there indeed is a design to your make. You didnt just haphazardly end up with that beautiful voice, lyrical mastery, artistic eye, creative hands, creative mind, a badass wordsmith, writer, poet, theatre artist, screen artist, creative arts and crafts….the avenues to let out creativity are really limitless and whichever one you have resident in you, you owe if First to God who put it in to let it come out, Secondly to yourself to be All you can be and Thirdly to the society… We could use more real role models around here(not the Kardashians of this world)…if you think the world is twisted right now, wait for 10years and you’ll really see what twisted is, so we really need to step up, connect with the source(God in whatever language) and start some good vibes. I’m eternally optimistic that we can do some….alot of good this way.

Thank you for reading.

    This is a great piece dt we all need in ds generation especially. We all wanna make quick and fast money and pattern our lives after some people forgetting that we’v got things on d inside of us dt can make pple pattern their lives after ours and gradually we let this things die and bury dm so deep that we don’t even get to remember we ever had such things in us. Its time for our generation to wake up n awaken our God-given talents. Wt I js believe is dt everyone has something on d inside dt someone needs;dt someone is waiting for. So nothing is really useless or wasted afterall. No gift is irrelevant, its js about channelling it into d right places. lovely piece bro.

    This is a piece I find very interesting. Our generation needs to grow and we can only do so by adhering to words like these. God bless you Overlord. You have done well.

    If you want a real life, get a real job.
