If you’re in paid employment, you most likely have a boss you report to. Every organization has a line of hierarchy; you may join a company as an intern but become a manager one day.
We want so many things.
Every day we wake up, there’s an addition to the list of the things we want and desire. Our wants always surpass our needs and we can’t help it because that’s just the way we are wired.
It’s been four days
And I’ve gotten no sleep
My eyes itch
Since I came out of the compulsory fourteen days quarantine period for recent travellers, I’ve been going for walks around my neighbourhood instead of driving all the way to the Lekki/Ikoyi bridge. I still get my 5km in but I’ve been unable to take a walk alone in peace.
You are not alone. I feel it too. The fear. The panic. The uncertainty. The inability to take your mind off the news update every day. The worry you no longer have control over. The wonder about when we will have normalcy again.
This post contains a compilation of five short poems.
1. I MISS YOU
I wish we were quarantined together
because I’ve missed you more
in these past few days
I remember reading The Smart Money Woman at the tail end of 2016 and commending myself for already doing most of the things mentioned in the book. The story was relatable and I liked how we learned about money; its highs and its lows through the lives of five different friends.
We’re in the middle of a global pandemic
people are dying every day
and hope seems so far away
I am well
I am healed
I am safe
I have faith
I am not afraid
I bet you’ve heard the saying
no one knows tomorrow
several times and thought
well, the richest man in the world knows tomorrow
Coronavirus disease (covid-19) has put life as we know it on hold all around the world. I happened to be away at some point during this pandemic and I’m sharing my travel experience with you all. If you haven’t read the first part, you would have to read it first because this post is a continuation of the previous one.
There’s never a right time
It’s going to be scary
You will wonder if you’re sane
There will always be a reason to wait
