Wingless Words

I love Coldplay, i listen to them a lot
their words speak to me
So many contradictions, making you think in metaphors
they give me, peace-of-mind
they touch the pieces in me
"If you love me, u shud let me go"
go: Move away from what i know
No, thats what i tell myself, because you know i need you
And i love you, i just suck at expressing it
"Am i part of the Cure, or a Part of the disease"

My all time favorite line was from the song Rush of Blood to the Head
"Oh am gonna buy this place and see it burn, take back the things i did to you in return,
said am gonna buy a gun and start a war, if you can tell me something worth fighting for" 


Suddenly i dont like that line anymore.
It has lost its meaning to me. It sounds...violent 
#EnoughisEnough.
#EndTheViolence
#LightUpNigeria
Theres too much fighting already


 On a closely related issue...
Where did all the good girls go?
To a place called Home
A place where girls
are taught to love themselves, and imitate no one, 
demand and demonstate respect the minute they walk in that door

To a place called the past
Back when anxiety was as simple as wondering 
if Wonder woman would make it out alive
When Failure was as simple as failing Maths
When promises were as simple as Pinky bets
When 'Maybe' was an answer

Or maybe they went to the Future
Where a good man is hard to find
And a hard man is good to find
When Real eyes realize Real lies
Where u only say what you mean

How did we grow up so fast?

Wife of a Pharoah, Mother of a a Slave
Do you know what's worth fighting for? sticks and stones may break your bones
When it's not worth dying for?
if not, then use these words, for they will always teach you

Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?

When you're at the end of the road
And you've lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
Nothing's ever built to last
(damn it thats a bummer, just how did i go wrong?)
just remember that you are strong
and if doesnt break you it will only make you funnier
and stronger

Listening to: K'naan - Wavin Flag

where are all the good girls?
they've withdrawn into themselves and away from the light of this corrupt world.

Food for thought. The good girls are still here, just keeping their head down. Life can be so tough for all of us.
