|When We Were Young... by marvelck: 9:01am On Jul 04, 2012|
Its with a strong heart I write this, as I look back to days, weeks, months and years gone by when things were alot better than now. when we fought the civil war to keep our Country (that's now disjointed), together, when our fathers also went to fight in burma for oyinbo man, when Iran & Iraq were on each other's neck, when 'unknown' soldiers invaded Fela's house, vandalizing both people and properties with reckless abandon, when the almighty soviet union fell like a pack of cards and when many thought prince charles would be king someday. since only a few ever thought the queen would still be on the throne till now. when we had so many sit tight civilian and military leaders, who until recently were untouchable. and when the likes of Mammar Ghadafi and Mubarak held sway in Libya and morocco. living large and doing bonga bonga. and when we had the berlin wall, american soldiers fighting in vietnam and bedding their women, when we had a JFK, a Martin Luther King Jnr, and a Malcolm X, watched the cosby show eating UTC bread with sardin, loved an Atom ant and voltron the defender of the universe. the world was calmer when we were young and not as volatile as it is now. I love those days than this jet age. though I was small, I love the smell of then, than the odour of today. a world now polluted and under the threat of global warming. as Obama is ruffled and baffled by a disappointed electorates and an eccentric economy. while our own GEJ is dazzled and confused as our nation lives in fear and at the brink of collapse. Brazil no longer rule the world of soccer anymore. Spain is now the latest and reigning song on every body's lips. if you are in doubt, you can confirm it from Italy. we dont dance to juju or fuji music anymore. neither do we listen to songs from the past. but now shake our heads and waists to crazy lyrics from skibanj, wizkid (our own justin bieber), Ice T, Omawunmi and terry g. the youth cant wait to become men, as they hush the old out of the way. too many gadgets everywhere, no wonder bombs keep exploding everyday. while we drag ourselves through streets and homes filled with aching hearts with daggers drawn, as couples now break up faster than those olden days records. I knew of some good Bible believing churches then, but we now so many of them lining up every street and corners. some even claiming to illuminate, and using artistes to propogate & celebrate. we are now living in a crazy world, so fast many cant keep up with the pace. no wonder everything and everybody seems to be falling apart. I love it when we were young. though things were done slowy but in a steady manner. we had hatred then, but the love was more. look at the world now. what do you see? I doubt if you can see clearly, since the sky is filled smoke, and the ground covered in blood. as we kill and bomb one another into extinction. I really do love it when we were young. And can give anything to experience it all over again. compare to the world we live in presently...
