The birth of a General…

The soundless breeze strokes the bloodied skin as veins bulged out showing the existence of the ever pulsing heart. In the midst of clouded confusion and raging sounds of battle cries and the clashing of steel an unfamiliar calm, settles upon him.
Something, didn’t feel right, it felt scary calm for him. Time slowed down for him and barely any sound reached him. It felt like cotton filled his ears. In front of him, his current opponent looked like a moving statue that was filled with nothing but blood lust. But slow he was. No matter how he looked around, nothing changed, he no longer felt fear, he was calm. And with that, his sight was born anew. He saw it all, a bigger picture. It was no longer just himself anymore. He saw the enemy’s movement and their own. Patterns and secrets of battle, laid on his feet. He was no commander, but he knew for them to survive, tables had to turn. Him alone will not be enough. But it wasn’t the time to be worried about that, only what was in front of him mattered. Obediently, he steeled his heart and let his body follow his instincts. There seemed to be a flow, a current that he sunk in as he faced his opponents. His fatigue, fear… All of it was gone. And a fire was lit, a small one but a fire non the less, compared to the size of the battlefield. Around him, in the small area of his battalion, his allies felt the change when they laid their eyes on him. He was pushing the enemies back. His ferocity brought fear upon those in front of him.

His energy, lit the fires in the hearts of the warriors, and now came the time of this wild fire to spread in the dense forest of flesh and clashing steel. In earnest, together, they endeavoured to farther their stand in the battlefield. This time the tides of war favoured them. These men, these warriors believe in strength, and when they recognise it, they will follow. And as they saw the man, they knew he would be the kind to even wage war on hell and never waver

Alone.

Hi guys, sorry about the title, it’s not really about being alone but being in need of more than just… Food for thought, have you ever wondered how the first man, human, animal, being, had their first adventure? To discover beyond the familiarity of their current circumstances of life. My take of it is *need*, need for more than those mental walls built up by fear, fear of something new and ununderstable. However, most of the time fear is trampled over by a thing called curiosity. Questions like “what am I? Why am I here and is there another like me?” Solitary is good really, a time of reflection and self. However, something like companionship, or at the very least, the knowledge of an existence of another being somewhere is always reassuring. Now we might not see it but spend a couple of weeks without seeing or hearing anything move, breath, it might drive you to insanity or even worse. You’ve watched the news read the papers, you’ve seen it all, suicide is a result of basically a being not able to connect. I bet if I was to get researching, I’ll find some animals forfeited there lives and wasting away because of simply being alone. Can you believe that hundreds of thousands of lightyears NASA has searched and yet earth seems to be the only one with life, am not say the planets can’t hold life. Am saying we don’t have neighbours. And i don’t know about you but when my cooking oil has finished, at 10pm at night… Well thank the universe I have a neighbour. It’s kinda lonely, am I right? You tell me.

Like and comment, I want to get your thoughts on this #earth

The Flight Experience

Have you ever experienced flight, it’s not like you haven’t flown before. Am simply asking, have you ever experienced flight before? Several hundred feet above sea level. Where moisture gathers to make that rain that we all need despite sheltering ourselves from it. Except up there, the clouds actually look like heaven. An infinite horizon of sun kissed flooring of clouds at the stratosphere. The true sight of the gates that take you to a blissful paradise. With light orange rays of the sun set gracing the view that has forever been desired by all, a sight that shames even the statue of liberty because nothing says liberty, like freedom. We were so jealous that the birds get to see that everyday we had to get us a piece of that action. I advice you all readers, fly at least once.

Note:if you have any constructive criticism please do comment.

I thought that you had my back.

Uh…
I rack my mind trying to find where I went wrong
Was I choosy, was I just selfish?
Putting my thoughts, my wants above all?
All this time I thought that you had my back.
Blinded by the thought that you would be there to catch me when I slip.
Guess I was just cheating myself thinking you’ll be there every step.
And in return I would to the same when my time came.
All this time, I actually thought that you had my back.
What a dumb move Ted. You need to remember, in this world everyone think of no one but number one, and you ain’t it.
You are freaking liability. Anchor that just drags people behind.
I bet you didn’t even realise it.
It’s time to wake up and face fate.
There’s no time to shade tears and self pity.
All this time, damn, you never had my back.
It’s to wake and move on… Prepare for the road up ahead.
It’s not gonna be an easy road.
A loner, but remember, forgive but never forget.
Your past doesn’t define you. Forge on a path that they’ll never forget. For now It’s truly you against the world.
I will never forget, you never had my back.

Ted’s thoughts

The world is wounded by man’s actions. It thrives in and widens by little bacteria with their own agenda but the same goals, bacteria like lies, propaganda, conspiracies, hate, racism, tribalism, segregation of any kind, as long as it begets pain and devastation. And when a person tries to eradicate these bacteria, the effort has always proven useless and dangerous to the unlucky heroes to be. Infact their actions tend to be used to fuel the problems. What is there left to do… How do you save yourself when you always get in the way…

I’m just talking to myself. 

When you see me walking on the streets, 

And I seem to no not have a destination, 

Doesn’t mean am lost for a meet. 

Its on purpose that I  have no direction.

For somewhere deep in a castle that glints, 

I seet across someone and hold a conversation. 

Me: want to play chess,

Him:hmm, sure. To what do I owe the pleasure of the visit?(he snaps his fingers and the chess board appeared) last you where here you were a mess. I’ll take the white, you be the dark

Me: well, you live, you learn. I think  karma has taken a liking to me… 

Him:(he moves, I move) hmmm… What is it this time? 

Me: don’t pretend like you don’t know… Ah…! Am winning this one. 

Him: fine I know, so what? You want me to wave a magic wand and make your problems go away?(notices something.) best change direction before you make friends with the tarmac. 

In the real world, I turn a corner… It was evening and a little light rays hit the street, it was scarcely populated. As I continued on, I was back in the castle. 

Me: Haha no… That’s mine to bare. I just want company. 

Him: (left with one move, I block him, checkmate)Bah! Huuuh! Win some… Lose some. Go find a real person. 

Me: not that easy, 

Him: am not real… Don’t be afraid of rejection. Say hello,. 

Me: haha if it was that easy, I wouldn’t need you. 

Him: Exactly! (he says, leaving) Remember, am you, so I know you can d.. .. 

He fades away. Am left in the castle alone. 

I go back to reality, I walk by a coffee shop, I see a lady alone through the window… 

Leap of faith? 

No role models 

​No role models and am here  right now, 

No role models to speak of. 

Aye… Life’s a bitch but she the baddest bitch. 

But without her we ain’t  got  no better us. She is a lesson that we can’t  live without. 

So even if you  call 911 and run,  you’d be ashamed about it. 

Now remember, back to a better you, before you were a great family, before you  had the courage to protect all of that imagination…

Who had your back when you were but a fledgling? 

This I wrote inspired by J. Cole… No role models…

Maybe life is the role model?
