Happy Birthday Gbemi!
Today is my brother's birthday, I called him this morning to wish him happy birthday and he was like "Oh yeah thanks" like he had somehow forgotten about it! I bet a lot of folks don't even know I have a brother, actually I have 3 depending on who's counting.
Gbemi and my sister Oyin are the quite laid back ones, My Older sister Nikky is the brains in the family, loud and Vulga as hell! And mua...2nd born black sheep...wouldn't have it any other way!
God has been extremely good to my family this year, especially to Gbemi and I am positive that this is just the beginning of greater things to come. I am so proud of you papi!!! You know I am not the affectionate type and I have probably never told you this but dude...I love you, I am proud of you and I am so glad you are my brother!! Have fun today and give Missy my love! Smoochies!!
The Odds are against me but pile up enough Odds and you are Even. The inevitability of my ability to consistently overcome overwhelms me. As do the magnificence of God's grace towards me and mine. I marvel at my proximity to my destiny. I am astounded that Can't, Won't and Later disrupt my journey to greatness. A conscious decision is mine to make and christen them Can, Will and Now! My reflection gazes back at me with another challenge at hand, procrastination hinders my reaching my destination. Don't tell me where I should go till you walk in my shoes. Yesterdays mistakes are for tomorrows amends, yet I ponder on them like the hand of time changes? Mediocrity has become a comfort zone and I have turned obstacles into road-blocks rather than stepping-stones, I find myself compromising my integrity as I try to maintain the status quo. How easy it is to condemn me and defame my character, when you really should commend me, and applaud my efforts. Intimidated by my confidence, you misconstrue it as arrogance, I know who I am.... A strong, black-diamond in the rough, a female soldier, a Queen amongst her peers.. now who the hell are you?
