Chikwado: Blind poet

MY JOURNEY IN THE BLIND WORLD – Chukwu Chikwado

THIRTEEN YEARS ON MY JOURNEY IN THE BLIND WORLD , CONTINUES Today {October 1}, as usual, I remembered how the night fell on me at noon. It was on this day, Nature abruptly ceased and shut down the windows of my sight. There was no symptoms. There was no illness prior to the loss of my sight. There was no prophecy. Indeed, the loss of my sight came like the biblical second coming of Jesus, it took me unawares! It was on the 1st October,...

TOGETHER WE HAVE LIVED By Chikwado the blind poet

Together we have lived, In the deepest ocean of love, From the earliest hours of ages, We started the journey in dove, Oh! What sweet friends indeed? When my darkest day comes, With distress and pain, I hold on to nothing, my friend was all my hope, With his hand, happiness shall come my way, I comforted! As I hope on my friend for a lift, To him I stretched my hands for help, To perform his duty of love, Behold, I got nothing but betrayal Rejection, hatred surrounded me, In my oblivion,...

I DATE NO MORE BUT MY WIFE TO BE BY BLIND POET

“Love is blind” so they say; Even the holders, both are same; So sad to glue my heart tight to Glory; But in dismay, I may tell my story; About the slippery journey that drove my soul to a tall babe; Peace I thought was mine, as my mouth called her angel; Right she thought was hers, whilst she fled my heart with no sorry; Behold, my wet heart she licked with her seeming milky, but with; A pretentious innocent tongue; Ah! So sweet I felt, as my...

BAD NEWS SOWORE: HE’S REMANDED IN DSS CUSTODY RATHER THAN IN PRISON.

The worst of two evils have befallen Sowore. I knew he would be remanded in custody, but I thought that the DSS were done with him and would allow him to be remanded in regular prison, But no! The DSS are not done with him yet. They requested, and the court granted, that Sowore remain in their custody, that is the continuation of the total isolation he has been in for 50 days now. Note that the only prediction by Chikwado (the...

DSS TREATED SOWORE FAIRLY

By Chukwu Chikwado Raphael, UNILAG Law Nigeria human right The problem with the human right community in Nigeria has always been that there are many crooks and dishonest people among them, and they are the most vocal ones. Remember how vocal and a champion of human rights Festus Keyamo were until the arrival of Buhari? Remember how quiet Femi Fani-Kayode was when Obasanjo committed war crimes in Odi and Jegun? Even today when FFK discusses the Nigerian civil war crimes, doesn't he make it...

THAT WHICH IS OKAY AND THAT WHICH IS NOT-CHIKWADO THE BLIND POET

Breaking up is okay . Starting over is okay. Moving on is okay. Saying no is okay. Being alone is oka. What is NOT okay is staying somewhere that you aren't happy, valued or appreciated, THAT is not okay. Don’t be consumed by what went wrong or what didn’t work out, but always forgive yourself so you can heal. Instead of avoiding your pain, work through it {you will conquer it} Instead of withholding your tears, let them flow. Instead of closing your heart, open it. {And you...

WORDS FROM A BROKEN HEART ~ THE PAINS OF LOVE

It hurts like hell to leave your hand, The fluke I had been to meet your kind; But what do I do than to let it slide, What do I do than to break the ties, The best of time I spent with you, You made me feel the hell was cool, Now the world seems hopeless like I'm hung on a hook, But I will rather wave goodbye than to again kiss your foot, I saw your radiant smile even though I'm blind[?] You tickled my entirety...

Fearless Catholic Clergy Bishop Matthew Kukah on Biafra

From Bishop Matthew Kukah Anyone who thinks the Biafra agitation is a nuisance and irritating should know that it is not the collective aspiration of all Igbos but especially that no one has the monopoly of nuisance. Nuisance begets nuisance. When you stay with potash loaders you too will share in their dusty hair. It is in this country that the same standards are not held against all. Some can get away with anything but others cannot get away with same thing. I shudder at...

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA DOES NOT REGARD PRESIDENT BUHARI.

Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa, though a clever and experienced politician and the leader of the second biggest African country, will not have much respect for the President of Nigeria. Just like in all situations, when you deal with a group, you have to look at the internal dynamics within the group to assess its strength and weakness. A president could be powerful as a person, while his country is weak. A president is powerful as a person, if he is...

SOUTH AFRICA A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT TO AFRICA

The South African government has been a disappointment to Africa, just as Nigeria; but let's talk about South Africa. In the 70s and 80s, Nigeria led the world in the fight to end the white supremacist regime in South Africa, known as the Apartheid. Then Nigeria still had the muscle to flex in the continent, not now that Nigeria has become a mockery object. It was natural, therefore, that upon the end of Apartheid, Africans would be hopeful that South Africa, led...
