What if their opinion doesn't count,
Heaven won't fall if you decide to please no one,
Not minding whose ox is gored,
Putting your own happiness first.
What if you're only accountable to your creator,
Taking control of your own life,
Living without jumping on trends,
Chasing life crudely and not shadows.
What if you only grabble with reality,
Refusing to live in the dream island,
Not minding if anyone is impressed or not,
Setting the pace for yourself.
Your life is yours to live,
You owe no one nothing,
Humans will forever be hypocritical,
Don't base your existence on their stipulations.
Enjoy your stay while it last,
Always be compassionate towards humanity,
Be a prisoner of your conscience,
Playing to the gallery doesn't guarantee success.

To this day, his parents still feel bad for their sons lifetime been diminished by the toxins in cigarette smoking. On the flip side, one of the biggest fears for the modern human being is a silly and dangerous health precaution against smokers and people with
Photo: Mohamed Nohassi Great things aren't realized by impulse, rapt struggle and burning desires just seems to be the driving force sharpening unrealistic goals. We strive to pinch perfection from the collection of wishes with the exertion of efforts to define our route to prestige, perhaps to push beyond boundaries. Sometimes we're often blinded by the arrays of defeats and inevitable ruin. Like when life seems tough; underdogs and predatory advice might get one thinking negatively — exploiting life struggle with a flicker of a worst-case scenario. To some extent, I assume stepping outside of our comfort zone to chase success is equally a chore to bear in the cause of living. After all, we all commit to life-affirming dreams and aspirations. Trust me, existence offers endless misery and merry, fleeting moments we've got to accept. In the course of our lifetime, there are fractions of regrets, rejections and frustrations — either way, we've got to continue pressing
We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends, and living our lives. — Maya Angelou. I had spent over ‘four months’ at home without school as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) — a public health disaster that’s been devastating to nations while social lifestyle and productivity have fallen as targeted lockdowns in several countries disrupt educational sector as well as depriving congregational religion services. So, essentially there are other plans I had to be modified to fit into the COVID-19 new normal lifestyle. One of the quite major roles as a Nigerian student is that I have just earned is an improvement in literature (reading and writing) monumental moments to feel delighted with relatives and neighbors — moments sharing circumstances and experiences as the deadly virus trapped us in our house. In essence, my daily schedule while the Coronavirus creates us in a new form of being, a few days in L
