I HAVE LOST FRIENDS WHEN I NEED THEM THE MOST.I HAVE HAD LITTLE SUCCESS GET TO MY HEAD AND IT ALMOST RUINED ME. I HAVE SEEN WHAT WHAT MONEY DOES TO NOBLE MEN.I HAVE GONE FROM WONDERING WHY LORD TO THANK YOU LORD.I HAVE BEEN IN A PLACE OF EXTREME LAZILY TO A PLACE WHERE PURPOSE WOULDN'T LET ME SLEEP. I HAVE TREKKED MILES SO I COULD SING AND BE APPLAUDED TO SINGING TRUTH INTO SOULS OF OBSTINATE MEN.

I HAVE GONE FROM A POINT OF NA THE LAST GARRI BE THIS O,MAKE WE DRINK AND REST TO A PLACE OF BABY WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO EAT THIS MORNING. FROM A POINT WHERE I SANG AND PEOPLE USED MY VOICE AS BACKGROUND MUSIC TO EAT THEIR FOOD TO A PLACE WHERE KINGS(NOBLE MEN) STOOD ALL THROUGH AT THE SOUND OF MY MELODY.

I HAVE SAT IN OFFICES ALL DAY WAITING FOR THE OGA(BOSS) BECAUSE I THOUGHT THAT MY BREAKTHROUGH WOULD COME FROM HIM TO A PLACE WHERE OGA PLEADED TO COME WHEREVER I AM JUST FOR A MEETING.I HAVE READ BOOKS,PRACTICED ALL NIGHT AND PUNISHED MY MIND UNTIL IT UNDERSTOOD.THROUGH IT ALL I CANT REMEMBER GIVING UP..

BECAUSE I NEVER BELIEVED GOD MAKES MISTAKES.. HE WON'T Give YOU SO MUCH TALENT/IDEA JUST SO IT WOULD DROWN YOU... JUST KEEP ON KEEPING ON...A DAY WILL COME WHEN PURPOSE WILL COLLIDE WITH GOD'S TIMING..."
