Reflections from Summer 2018. A piece by Sandra C. Bamisile ©
Being Nigerian in Nigeria is something nearly profound. There is a comfort that creeps over my skin. It is almost suffocating how magnificent it feels to be your own person among your own people. It is almost bewildering how ecstatic I am to eat the food of my people by my people, with my people. Continue reading A Person of My People
I am starting a new series where I expose on some grand pieces of poetry I feel the whole wide world can further appreciate in depth. I will also be looking into the lives lived or being lived by these great people.

Be thankful for what you have.
You have got all the things that you want.
Others do not have half of what you have.

Be careful never to covet what your friends have.

When I look at old pictures of you,

It is my birthday today. Maybe no one will remember me.
Yet I am happy within and so thankful to God for the life He has given me.
I know life is not easy and it shouldn’t always be. It may test me, judge me, but may lead me to several results.
One day has value. One hour has much more than that. One minute is even better, and each second given to reading this is perhaps the most valuable gift to me.
So give value to life now, you can change it or it may change you.
~ Thoughts by Pelayo
Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things are past away. Behold all things have become new.
