Playing wiv Fire

I'm playing with Fire and I cant stop
I see the flames but its kinda fun!
You know how you strike a match and watch it burn to the tip and quickly shake your hand before it gets to the tip of your fingers?
But has it ever happened that you got so caught up in watching the flames burn that you forgot the plan and it burnt the tip of your finger?
Thats where we are stuck
Having so much fun watching it burn that it just might get to the tip of our fingers before we realize
Listen now!
Not the fire that dances back, giggling as you slide your fingers through it from left to right
Yes, Candle light reciprocates love, yes
you make like a cave with your hands and watch it dance around
with your fingers you sentence it to death
but still this meek, playful candle can turn Judas on you
leave it unwatched, unmonitored and the once playful flames roar up like lions and consume all that you have, maybe you too.
We are playing with fire and we know it!
Tipping dangerously to the edge of the rim
I advice that we stop now, before it consumes us!!!
My patience with Nigeria is beginning to wear
President is missing, is he dead?
We dont know?
How is it possible that we have a president so ill in the first place? Dont they do health checks and things?
Its embarrassing
Nigeria is playing with fire and i wish she'd stop
Theres an extent to how much our neighbourhood, Africa can tolerate or even the rest of the world
President is issuing a statement to BBC when AIT and NTA have not seen his break lights?
Senators are in the news, naked in shrines holding human heads
I'm not sm1 to nag or complain i dont like it, but I'm tired!
Banks in confused state, can you imagine this
A bank exec steals money and runs away, but then the police arrest the poor ppl that worked under him, sayin, 'when he returns with the money, we'll release you'
Thats not fair, but its the system
Governors stashing up their accounts while their state suffers, no education, no amenities, no defence.
My friend always says Nigeria has been molested raped and beaten up
She's in a bad bad bad marriage and even if she got divorced today it would take years of therapy to get her sanity back.
I'm tired of making jokes about the legal system, education, amenities....
Nigeria is playing with fire and I wish she'd stop
Only now did ppl begin to trust her, maybe she's not all 419 after all and e-mail scams
Oh but what happens
Some goat head goes to stash knock out in his underwear!
Now they've added terrorist to her already long list of names
I wish she'd stop
I keep fighting for her, but I'm beginnig to doubt that she wants that
Dehumanizing experiences i face whenever I want to travel, and can I complain?
I wish she'd stop
Religious riots in Jos....
EFCC files Waziri lost
Oil money lost to Oversea Accounts
I wish she'd stop so future generations can have a chance

I made the decision to move the character in my novel to an imaginary town....whoever said writing about what you know is easy, LIED,
The performances for the charity event that I'm organising are awesome!!AWESOME
all but the weather actually in my life.....is AWESOME
I'm excited for the year...and this time I made no resolutions!
Following last year, I made no resolutions, but detailed plans as to how I'd like to accomplish my goals for the year n that worked out beyond my expectations
k...so here's a summary of the story ttyl!!!

"(MMR) is one of the most gifted African Speakers & Writers of our generation.
This ** year old(smile) is a native of Ogun State, Nigeria; and an Undergraduate Student of Marketing of the U of W.
Dont be deceived by her petite stature, (which is probably & literally the smallest thing about her), she is a very friendly, highly opinionated young Lady. Also a trailblazer, high achiever and go-getter.
To her nothing is impossible. Right from middle and high school in VFMC, she was the first & only Day Student Senior Perfect; and an outstanding Scholar.
She is presently the President of The U of W's African Union, and recently dubbed the title of Competent Communicator (CC) by Toastmasters International."
