FEAR              -Dupe Olomola

“Words set free” they say

But what happens,

when you’re not allowed to speak

What happens?
He had a full head

Heavy brain with a ready mouth

He was willing to speak

He was ready
Words of liberty

Words of freedom

Words of peace 

Words that heal
But he couldn’t speak

He couldn’t let the words out

And like a stranger trapped in a foreign land,

The words were trapped in him
It wouldn’t let him speak

With mighty shackles,

It held him back

It made him dumb
He cried to be set free

He wailed for freedom

But like a little helpless girl,

He had no strength
Who will set him free?

Who will let those words out of him?

The words the world is waiting for?

Who will deliver him from it?
No one could

No one could set him free from fear

The mighty chains of fear, that held him

No one could, no one but his very own self

Goodbye 2016 ✌✌✌

Goodbye 2016 
Goodbye procrastination
  Goodbye competition
    Goodbye ungratefulness
      Goodbye fake friends
        Goodbye heartbreak 

         Goodbye misplaced priority
             Goodbye confusion

                  Goodbye stress 


                   Goodbye nonchalance
                    Goodbye shenanigans (maybe?)


                       Goodbye Failure
                          Goodbye lack 
                             Goodbye limitation
                                Goodbye sickness
                                   Goodbye laziness
                                      Goodbye anger
                                         Goodbye FLESH.

Drop the unnecessary baggage/garbage in 2016.

Let 2016 swallow it up.

Even “friends”

Those who walk, walk with many 

Those who run, run with a few

Those who fly, fly alone….

See you next year ?????

​Dear future son,

Long before you came, I prepared for you.
Countless nights I stayed up praying for you, before I met you or even your father. ???

Made a promise to give you the best dad in the world, the best role

model you can have.?

Made a promise to give you a great life, and at least one sibling.?

Made a promise to let you follow your dreams and not coerce you

into living mine.

Made a promise to introduce you to God even from the womb.

Made a promise to impart the knowledge of God into you.

All these, I have done and more.

Now dear child, these few things I ask of you….

Love God and acknowledge him.

Respect your sister(s), only then will you respect ladies outside.

Never take a woman for granted, think of the pains of your mother at


You have a good heart, I can feel it but evil communication corrupts

good manner, keep a small circle.

Not everyone is a friend.

Your destiny is in your hands, your decisions today, will form your

tomorrow. Be wise.

You are a prince, always remember that. And soon dear son, you’ll be a king. How you’ll rule your kingdom is determined by your behavior now.

When you’re down and can’t speak to anyone, even I, go to God, he’s ever there. He’s watching over you, and always ready to listen to you.

Take your problems to him.

You’ll be surprised at the peace that comes during and after prayers.

I pray that God guides and strengthens you.

I pray for wisdom beyond your peers and at the right time, I pray that

God directs you to Her . Your help meet, your woman, your friend, your partner that’ll continue from wherever I stop.

God bless you my child. ?

-Your Mom and Friend?
