Before your alter I bring my plea
In humility I bury my kneels
Do not count my sins, i pray
For many time I have gone astray
Through this moonless night,
Seize not my breathe, give me Life and Light
But if today You have ordained as my last
Count me a worthy son, not as an outcast.

In the world that we live in today, so many of us as young people are predisposed to that world which says "it is every man for himself".

And perhaps, rarely do most of us encounter people who's got beautiful faces, charming smiles, and then a good heart.

In the headlines we read and hear news about selfish politicians, we spend our busy day with selfish friends, and even more worse is the reality that we each day find ourselve growing up in the midst of a 'mind-your-own- business' kind of family and/or a 'me first before anyone' neighbors who wouldn't mind who gets hurt as far as their desires are met.

Let me assure you that things can get better, and it is already for those who knows the secret of how to live a fulfilling life.

Of course, I knew you would you be glad to have me share the secret with you. It is nothing out of the ordinary.

The number one answer to recreating our world into a better place where people have good heart and not just good face is, "you and your family".

A family really isn't about letting each other do whatever they want. It's about each person doing what's good for the family, and that's how we attain a world where every is doing what's good for the world.

Now, you and me are charged with the duty to start doing what's good for the family so that families can do what is good for the neighbors...the neighborhood for the community...communities for the state...states for the nation...and the nations for the world altogether.

We can change the world through our committment to building a better world by building a better family.

Be good. Do good.

No-One Is Good For Nothing!

This is a letter to you, our great champions to whom the future belongs.

Some things are facts but they are not the whole truth. So be very careful not to let anyone or the circumstances that you are going through deceive you.

Yes!, it's true that you are young. But no-one is ever too young to do great and mighty things.

Yes!, you are small. But the Holy Book said, "it is not by power nor by might", which means your size or height doesn't matter.

Yes!, you have disabilities. But have you ever read about Helen Keller, Yinka Ayefele, Stevie Wonder, Cobhams Asuquo, etc, go and read about them and soon you will realise that to have LIFE and BREATHE is all the ABILITY that you need to make the difference.

Yes!, your parents ain't so rich. But that's why every child is said to be a GIFT and a BLESSING from GOD. That is to say, your primary assignment is to add value and be a source of blessing to your immediate family.

Yes!, I know you have many things to complain about like bad governance, unemployment, poor economic state, and etc, but wait a minute, do you know that problems are meant to be solved by those who desire success and work for it?

Imagine our world today without the advancements in science & technology, media, sport, art, etc., many of the milestone achievements made in this fields were brought about by men like you and me.


* Don't let anyone talk you down.
* Never you accept failure as you birth-right.
* Don't be too shy to ask questions when you are not clear.
* Don't feel intimidated by other people's success.
* Don't ever submit to the opinion, idea, suggestion or people that says you are good for nothing.

Always remember that "No-One is Good For Nothing" except for those who think they are.

When you hold me safe and warm, I will sing for you a new song.

When you hold me safe and warm, I will be to you a lily among thorns.

When you hold me safe and warm, I will thrust my arms in yours as we travel along.

When you hold me safe and warm, I will trade with you all my love at once.

When you hold me safe and warm, I pray never to love no other but you.

When you hold me safe and warm, I will be safe and warm in your arms forever.
