WAITING FOR LOVE By Love Whiteman

With a good heart,

Waiting for someone to love,

After the long wait,
Just to meet someone like you,
So long a wait,
You came my way.

With a good heart,
Patiently waiting to know you,
After the long wait,
To find a friend in you,
So long a wait,
Our friendship grew.

With a good heart,
I never stopped loving you
After the long wait,
Hoping you will feel the same,
So long a wait,
But it never came.

With a good heart,
I then realised,
My love was meant for someone,
Strong enough to handle its weight,
Without fear of being hurt,
I’ll love again.

I’m in Nigeria (Up early by Love Whiteman)

It’s just 6:00am? No, this isn’t normal, this is absolutely wrong. I’ve always been the ‘late to rise’ kind of person either I went to bed early or not, except something more important than my sleep has to wake me up.  I just slept around 2:30am, so why am I awake so early?
Then I started thinking; did I have a terrible dream, err…..the last thing I can remember from that dream was me being at a party waiting to be served and I think that should have made me wait longer in the ‘dream land’. Is there anything exciting about today? Well, none that I can think of apart from the fact that it is just another Saturday with no lectures which is another good reason for me to still be in bed, sleeping.
Why has sleep left me stranded at this time of the morning? Or am I bothered about something? I am not done with chapter two of my project and that isn’t enough reason for me to be awake by this time, it isn’t the deadline yet.
Buzz, my phone vibrated. It’s my classmates again, what are these people discussing on the group page at this time of the morning? It’s just 7am for God’s sake. I decided to go through my chats hoping I’ll still find my sleep, my heart skipped three beats when I saw……”lecturer is around”.
Oh, shit! It’s the 7am class……..wait, today is Friday?

IF WE WERE ME By Love Whiteman and Taichi

If we were me, the world will be filled with people who are ready to accept their imperfections,  we’ll all be beautiful and  we’ll strive to make our world a better place.
On a lighter note, If we were me, the word ‘fat’ wouldn’t exist, we’ll all be light skinned, and  we’ll have one tribe(Igbo) and one country(Nigeria).
If we were me, no one will be older neither will anyone be younger because we’ll all be of the same age. But I’m happy we are not me because, if we were me, we’ll all be females and I wonder how we’ll have kids. If we were me, I’ll lose my uniqueness, because we’ll think alike and have no one to correct us when we make mistakes.

If we were me, the world woud have been free. free from hatred, jealousy and greed. all faces glowing with glee
If we were me, what would our fate be? For d same goal, we’ll seek. for d same girl, we compete same strengths, same limitations. The world would have been in commotion.              – Lawal Taoheed
