In one of my spoken word poetry performance I said; “Life is of an essence”. The question that followed was; “So, what’s your essence? What relevance or essence is your presence if you don’t earn-sense?” Yes! Earning sense is quite important but there’s more you need to know first. Chill!
“What’s Life?” You might want to say life is the condition of living or the state of being alive but the irony is, there are many dead people who are alive. Too bad, I know, right? To some persons, they just want to get the money, flex life, own properties, forgetting the fact that life is beyond owning and getting owned.
I’d have love to compare life to a Nollywood movie but I won’t do that cause I think, life seems to be more real but, if at all I want to compare life to a Nollywood movie, I’d say God is/was the Scriptwriter and I’m probably one of the characters. You can call me Timini Egbuson or Desmond Elliot if you wish but you see the thing is every character (person) is on a movie (earth) to play a role… In other words, every person is on earth to fill a need otherwise one’s superfluous.
Everyone has a dream, not achieving them makes one life on earth seem like a waste. You should ask yourself; “Am I towards the part of achieving my dreams?” Or first of all, ask yourself; “What’s my dream(s)?”.
I know sometimes, the unexpected or the unintentional happens, as Christians, we might even be damaged spiritually, but hey! Listen, I just want to let you know that these breakings(times) are creating blessings in advance. What you go through doesn’t define or determine where you end up. As a matter of fact, what you go through should even make you stronger, better, and wiser. Trust me! Nothing can stop you except you. Even the devil can’t stop you. Put your trust on God, don’t loose faith and focus. Focus! And if you ask me; “where’s the hope?”, I’ll bodily say you’re the hope for the world.
The worst thing that can happen to you is getting to the end of life only to realize you never truly lived. Too bad! Even the bible says, in this world you will have troubles, tribulations, trials, trying to try you but since you’ve been justified through faith, you now have peace with God through Jesus… Be the best!
Hey! Listen to the large or little lessons Life is teaching you or life has taught you. Earn sense from it and be relevant. Turn that lemon to lemonade. Ciao!
