2011 ...............

2011
Terrible mistakes were made
Wrong decisions were made
Got carried away a lot of times
Things were at a standstill

Along the line
Things got back in line
Doors were opened
Mistakes were rectified


Made more enemies
Just for things to be right
No regrets whatsoever
I forge ahead without regrets

A better entity evolved
The peace came back and covered all pains
Pains were relieved

2012 
Will be better
Major steps will be taken
Joy will be fully restored

Racism is still here ........

Racism is definitely still here in the UK......

After spending about two years here, I think I got my first full dose of racism at work and I'm so pissed about it that I'm taking it up with the management. I understand that the typical uneducated British hates immigrants because they think we are the ones causing problems for their economy and their social amenities. I really don't blame them, our quest for a better life has pushed us as immigrants to share in their country's so called wealth. Are they even wealthy now with all these economic predictions they may be heading back into another recession?

The UK has really got immigration issues and in solving it, they are going about it the wrong way. While other countries like Australia and Canada are opening up their borders for skilled workers, the UK is closing theirs against skilled workers. Why should I even blame them, my country- Nigeria has refused over the years to be creative with their wealth and in the nearest future, I don't think it will.

At the end of the day, not all that glitters is gold in any country one finds himself!

WORDS .....

Words are like fire
It could be used to destroy
Words have destroyed a lot
Words seem like fire
Words that seem to act on their own
Without understanding the full implications
Words may be the best weapon to free the pains
The pains will forever be there when the words can no longer find wings

The words of fire will be quenched soon
The smoke will gather
The ruins will remain

Looking back
The fire should have remained as smoke!!!

UK Pains.... 1

When a full-blooded young man like me makes what I call a kind of sojourn into the UK without essential back-up such as the presence of the one you love and left back home to keep you in check, one is bound to stray in this country a few times. Over the last two years, I have had my temptations. I have been able to deal with some of these temptations adequately but I have also fallen by the wayside a few times. You can judge me as much as you like but I must confess living in the UK has been one of the most difficult times of my life.

I look back and think I shouldn't have fallen the few times I fell but I have learnt so many lessons that can't ever be learnt from books. I have realized you can't ever let a certain hurt get out of your mind or heart by trying to use someone or something to recover from that hurt. It will only end up blowing up in your face and you end up getting hurt the more.

This may just be the right place to talk about the sojourns of young men like me in their late 20s who think temptations in a place like this can be avoided if you stay focused but it's not always like that when the real situations prop up .....

To men like myself and my good friend and brother T.Notes who is more prone to temptations (lol ...true talk though) ...... God be with us!!!!

Musco Got His Mojo Back!

Somehow, Musco has got his blogging mojo back!

I must confess I come here everyday with the zeal to write something but my hands fail me even though most times my head is full of so many thoughts, real-life experiences I want to share. One good reason why I have refused to blog in a while is the fact that I was angry with the world and so called friends. I just didn't want to use my blog as a way of letting out my anger. If I had done that, I'm so sure I would have world class enemies by now and they may even be calling for my head like they have been calling for Gaddafi's in Libya as well as Arsene Wenger's head at Arsenal.

I don't do blog rounds that much again but that yeye boy or man called T.Notes always has a way of making me go to his blog to make comments. I was almost pushed to the wall several weeks back when he kept mentioning my name on his blog and making different allusions to the 'Musco' entity, to write a full piece about him but I was told by my legal counsels T.Notes to give him sometime to amend his 'womanish' ways.

Anyways, I'm back and will be doing a lot of writing in the next few days. I need to start up again with reflection on those days when 'Musco' was a popoular naija blogger.

For friends like my egbon-Naijalines that have abandoned me. God dey o!

Tagged!!!!

I have been tagged again! Although I have been tagged ages ago, I don't really know what kept me from accepting the 'tag'. In my egbon's word (Naijalines):

''The rules are as follows:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Tell us 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know that they have won''

Since it's been ages I was tagged, I will just go straight ahead without following the rules and tell you seven things about myself .........

1. I'm beginning to love football with a strange passion that has not been there before. Even though it gives me heart-ache when the team I support loses, I promise myself to stop watching football but the next weekend I'm a die-hard Arsenal fan again!

2. I think I have a thing for older women, most of my virtual friends are older than me and I really enjoy having them as my friends *winking*.

3. I daydream a lot about what my complimentary card will look like in the nearest future because of all the academic qualifications I seem to have acquired.

4. I'm getting tired of making job applications!!!

5.I still fight a lot with my mum even though we are miles apart but we seem to have a special way of settling our differences.

6. I have a sleeping dis-order!!! No matter the time I sleep, I wake up like 2-3am and I can't sleep until the break of dawn.

7. I have a strong passion for Naija music and I believe I have a good ear to know if a particular naija music will be a hit or not. I'm also daydreaming of starting my own record label that will be a force to reckon with on the naija music scene.

Done!!!

No elaborate .....

No elaborate title for this post!!!!

I have a feeling it's been ages since I put down my thoughts on blogville. I really don't know why it's so difficult to write these days. Maybe I'm gradually getting too old for blogging(...is this really an excuse?) or I have just lost the zeal to just flow. I must confess that I do log into my account to write but after some few minutes, I log out again because the words just seem to go into thin air once I try to pick the particular issue to blog about. I still do a lot of blog rounds even if I don't leave comments but I do read a lot of writings from other blogs.

It is interesting to note that since I have been on AWOL for a while, T.Notes has gradually increased his female fan base on blogville because I no longer monitor his movements on the female blogs. FYI, I have been monitoring you and I will soon start giving you a run for your money amongst the blogville female community asap.

My dear egbon- Naijalines tagged me several weeks ago and I'm promising to make that my next post asap.......!!!

My muse is back I guess!!!
