A LIL RANT.

Now i know that being a mum aint a fancy job afterall.

here's my story and the reason i haven't been here or anywhere in a while.........

I am a very nice girl, that explains why i'm putting 3 weeks of my precious time on hold to become a full time mother of 3.
to forefeit my lessonns(french and spanish), getting away from home a whyle to my new environ and personal project. U see, i'm that nice to do away with all these to be helpful to YOU and yet u don't appreciate.
I hate to half way tru with wot i've started if not, i wuld ave just abandoned these kids without a wink and live my life.

I am ranting here cuz my sis since her being around seems to be suffering from partial memory loss(i'm sorry if u read this sis). she's started to piss me off wif all her complaints.(i'm allergic to this, don't want mosquitoe bites on the kids) all her oohs and aahs are just irritating me. have you 4 gotten how we lived thru these bites AND NO ALLERGIES and nufn happened? abeg jo enof is enof.
wakey wakey, u r back home so please fine tune ur FEELERS to recieve naija how u left it or even worse.

I'M A WEEK PLUS INTO MY JOB AS A FULL TIME MUM as my sis is away in Niger state for her NYSC. TO make my job lighter, wen she left, my folks decided to move the kids over to our house which is not a distance to diers. YEAH, HELL BROKE LOOSE WHEN SHE LEARNT THAT HER SON GOT BITES(MOSQUITOES) AND she rants of how uncaring i've been. please do u expect me to celotape the boys whole body???????

SO FINALLY,SHE AND HUBBY DECIDES TO MOVE THE KIDS BACK TO THEIR HOME, THERBY DOUBLING MY JOB CUZ AT HOME GOT AN XTRA HAND WITH MY MUM.
I FRANKLY DO NOT LIKE THIS.............. BUT I'M NICE AND THAT SAYS IT ALL.

I'm quitting this job next week that means mum has to go on LEAVE to take over. i've got somethings to pursue and seriously, no looking back.


HERE'S A LIL WATEVA I PENED DOWM SOME DAYS AGO...................

EFFORTLESSLY I HEED THE CALL.
EVEN THE MONSTER IN ME COULDN'T WAIT TO EXPLODE.
WITHOUT A TINY BIT OF GUILT IN ME,
I'M ON RAGE AS MY SADNESS DEEPENS.

WHO DO I FIGHT FOR THING NOT DONE RIGHT?

WHO DO I SLAY FOR THE HALF TRUTH TOLD?

WHERE LIES MY STRENGTH????????

IN MY FIST OR MY GUN?

IN MY BOW OR ITS SLENDER ARROW??

IN MY SLING OR MY SHOT???

I HAVE NO POWER OF MY OWN.
FOR I WAS NOT BORN WITH A HEART OF STONE.
SO, GONE IS THE WAR THAT BEGAN IN ME,
AND BACK IS THE PEACE THAT LIES WITHIN.

I AM A LOVER OF PEACE AND A HATER OF WAR.
I AM AT EASE WHEN MY WORLD IS AT PEACE.

I love that part of it because I also often ponder at the current wars around the world. The last two lines also sum it very well.


Hope your sis appreciates you even if not now. But your blessings are sure anyway. Take care and all the best.
