One Way Street – New Time Machine, Liberation From The Past

Congrats! You’re the owner of a new time machine. The catch? It comes in two models, each traveling one way only: the past OR the future. Which do you choose, and why? http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/one-way-street/

 

 It happened one stormy morning of mid-February when I preferred to just stay at home. With this kind of weather, it is usually hard for me to leave my bed, enjoying the warmth beneath the blanket. So I just stayed in my bed, staring at the window and watching for the pouring rain… I love watching the rain. I didn’t have anyone to talk to, but I couldn’t help reminiscing my past. So I started to write all my resentments in a form of a letter…

 

Dear Past,

I am writing you because I don’t have anybody to listen to me. I can’t help it anymore so I decided to confront you because I thought it was the right thing for me to do, since this is all between me and you.There are a lot of memories of you that are really worth remembering. I learned a lot from you during my happiest and saddest moments, during my richest and poorest days and my best and worst times. And I want to thank you for that.When you were still my “present”, of course I enjoyed every second, every minute, and every hour spent with you, stitching bad things and good things together, enjoying the freedom I had. What bothers me the most nowadays is that I feel that you did not totally let go of me. It is because you still seem to be controlling parts of my being. I am still disturbed by what I had already left behind when I made the changes in my life to be a better person.It seems that until now, you are still holding some pieces of me.

It often feels like you urge me to go back to find those pieces of my history and put them together to be whole again, so I could free myself from yesterday. I am not so happy with what is happening to me in the present. I think that you are the one causing me distress because it feels like you are pulling me backwards and keeping me from moving on.You are not making things any easier for me. I have already suffered too much for what I have done and maybe that is now enough to pay my lot.

Don’t you know that you are the main reason for my day-to-day anguish and lots of sleepless nights? Please stop haunting me… please let me go and find a better life. Please set me free….

To my amazement, I received an immediate response that read like this….

Lyrical Lyrics – Beyonce’s Halo Always On My Lips

You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory —what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind? DailyPost

Well, what comes quickly to my mind is Bey’s songs especially Halo – I can sing it the whole day…lol
One of the reasons I love Beyonce’s songs is because the lyrics are so easy to memorize, she’s a great singer that sings with passion; you can easily feel the emotion of the song in her voice, and body languages. In all, I love her songs because she’s not a fast singer and anyone can easily singer along with her as well as memorize the lyrics.

Me... Doing Bey's Halo all day! lol

Beyonce’s Halo!
Remember those walls I built!
Oh, baby they’re tumbling down,
And they didn’t even put up a fight! They didn’t even make the sound!
I found a way to let you in, but I never really had a doubt standing in the light of your halo.
I gat  my angel now! It’s like I’ve been awakened,  every rule I had  you breaking!
It’s the risk that I’m taking… Ain’t never gonna shut you out!
Everywhere  I’m looking now, I’m surrounded by your embrace!
Baby I can see your Halo!, you know you’re my saving grace!
You’re everything  I need n more, it’s written  al’over your face.
Baby I can feel your Halo, pray it won’t fade away! (do ur halo!)

Chorus
I can see your halo – halo! Halo!! Halo!!!
I can feel your halo -halo! Halo!! Halo!!!
I can see your halo – halo! Halo!! Halo!!!
Halo, Halo Halo uuuuuuh!

Hit me like a ray of sun burn into much darkest night,
You’re the only one that I want, think I’m addicted to your light!
I swear I’ll never fall again, but this don’t even feel like falling!
Gravity can forget to pull me back to the ground again!
It’s like I’ve been awakened,  every rule I had  you breaking!
It’s the risk that I’m taking… Ain’t never gonna shut you out!
Everywhere  I’m looking now, I’m surrounded by your embrace!
Baby I can see your Halo!, you know you’re my saving grace!
You’re everything  I need n more, it’s written  al’over your face.
Baby I can feel your Halo, pray it won’t fade away! (do ur halo!)

Out Of Breath – Hectic July 26!

We all seem to insist on how busy, busy, busy we constantly are. Let’s put things in perspective: tell us about the craziest, busiest, most hectic day you’ve had in the past decade. – Daily Post

Hmmm…

I can’t really pinpoint any day now, I think I’ve had a couple of them in the recent past. The one that almost got me out of breath is this one:-

Campaign for my school’s departmental presidential election has been in top gear… I had my ‘favourite’ candidate in mind. Of course I’ve made plans to be there on July 26 (election day) to vote for my favourite candidate. I’ve already envisioned ‘our’ victory.

On the other hand, I have a friend’s wedding to attend on the 27th of July. In between these two days, I have loads of school work to do (it was a weekend), I also have church service to attend – I’m a worker in the church. I chose to dedicate the night hours when I’m done with major daily activities to do my school works… Great plan! So I thought.

On the 25th of July, my friend who is about to wed contacted me to help her prepare ‘chin-chin’ (crunchy Nigerian snacks) for the wedding occasion to spice up the day. Not minding my money I would spend in making the chin-chin for a wedding occasion of over 100 guests, I realised immediately that I was going to have a hectic July 26.

I had to ulter my initial plans for the weekend which is more activities. I obviously can not delete any of the activities except to decline my friend’s request, but I wanted to prove to her how to make sacrifices for someone you call your friend…because she acts selfishly most of the time.

Imaginary Friend – The Friend I Never Had!

Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? – DailyPrompt

Imaginary friend? What’s that!

Wikipedia explains it as: a psychological and social phenomenon where a friendship or other interpersonal relationship takes place in the imagination rather than external physical reality. Although they may seem very real to their creators, children usually understand that their imaginary friends are not real.

… and Daily Post is asking me how my imaginary friends would look like if they grew up alongside with me. Well, here’s how:-

1. They would value me
2. Would be patient with me
3. Would always pray for me
4. They would still keep in touch with me, no matter the distance, time, and cost.
5. They’d overlook my mistakes and make corrective criticisms.
6. They’d give me priority in everything including online.
7. They’d champion the announcement of my beautiful blog to they whole world.
8. They would not rely on rumours they hear about me, they’d ask me to confirm.
9. They would not be envious of my progress.
10. They’d never forget the little nice things I did for them, they’d give me shoulder to lean on when I seem weak.
11. They’d strive to keep the friendship alive.

These are the friends I wish I had… And of course, they are the friends I never had.

* I did not have imaginary friends.
