Cut It Lose,What Pride's You....

CUT IT LOSE,WHAT PRIDE'S YOU. Death is one prophecy that never fails.” Every person is born with a death sentence.I always tell my daughter,"something is coming and you’ll never be able to stop it. Be ready when that day comes."I'm just trying to make her ready for pain that comes from Death.And also to make her understand It’s not morbid to think about death constantly. It’s stupid not to. Spending a few minutes every day on our mortality, reaching into our pocket to touch a

I think about it every day and it boggles my mind that so many people don't. I feel they are sleeping at the wheel of their lives, will wake up just in time to see the end of the road and wonder where the beautiful scenery is. i feel such an urgent need for experiences because who knows when my time is up. Gotta do it now.Maybe cause alot of it has done alot harm on me ever since i was a child.

Since i watched Dorcas life slip away leaving a year old daughter behind is when i started to question cruelty of death.This sublime and unusual experience marked the moment i started to view life differently.

I've seen my friends fighting with migraine,each morning alot of pain and tortures.All of this is because of death games.

My late grandmother use to say,"growing faster is coming close to death."But the truth is i don’t need a near-death experience or a cancer-scare to tap into this energy.I've seen my brother Ochuka,puzzling with idea of his own breath and that experience tortures me dailly.

Death makes even the strongest to pause for a minute and decode it,remember Jesus during transfiguration? Even The powerful and the wise have been finding ways to remind themselves of their mortality for centuries. Even artist's art is filled with it. Poets writings muses on it. Politicians desks is full with pictures staged with totems to remind them of the urgency of life.

Earlier this year, I felt myself getting a little complacent. I felt like I was stuck in my routine of chest problem.I remmember at that time i was reading alot of books of death and sad stories .I even told my daughter once ,“ leave life right now. Let it determine what you do and say and think.”

As they always say,"We may not say it, but deep down we often act and behave like we’re invincible. Like we’re impervious to the trials and tribulations of mortality." Every man has an ending just learn to understand it before it reaches.

A cliché question to ask you brethrens,What would you change about your life if the doctor told you,you have two days to live?.....
