| Life some say is short and he that lives in pleasure is dead while still alive. I am writing from my closet thinking of the days of splendor, tours of pleasure and with each mind held captive, and opinions locked down ,time ticks though fun continues, biological changes occur, so maybe it is time to visit your closet as I have visited mine.
In innumerable number of times have I imagined myself in place of someone more prominent. I had thought my life would be at its sweetest and me being the greatest of all humans if kept in their place or position. I adored them in my heart and worshipped their intellectual abilities in my soul. I possibly could have called them mentors and bequeathed all manner of good deed if given the chance. Sincerely, those days were spent in adoration of this highly esteemed individuals and thoughts of them were graceful and momentary bliss. My dreams went on and on and I was deep into their lifestyle, beliefs, opinion and decision. These words of mine can go on an on but a simple clue to it is role modeling and favorites. So if you belong to my school of thought, I implore that you go with me all the way on these journey of logical reasoning.
Recently, I looked at my palms, I realized it was different from another persons, my thumbprints scientist s said it has no replica, I considered my interests, there I found uniqueness. So there I was asking myself in thoughts “howcould I ever want to be like anybody? Nuggets like “ if you want to be great, stand tall on the wings of giants are sometimes true but have been continually misconstrued because we could learn from the fall and achievement of others but could never be anybody else and nobody can be us. Only the most miserable soul would try to alter this. If really I try to be somebody like lets say Barack Obama, Juanita Bryum, Bill gate, Myles Munroe, Steven Covey and many others, I would think deeply if I have the strength to carry their cross. If being happy is on mentoring, then we needn’t have orphanages because nearly every individual has a prominent personality to die for.
The most highly concealed area of our lives is in the closet and if you don’t have one, you are not a living social being. The thoughts flow and horror of the past hold their bound, if I were to be shown my favorites closet, am not sure I would want to stand there because the heart of every man is full of fear, terror rage, hope, uncertainty, desire, reflections, deceit, and many more. So who wants to share Billy’s fortune, pain and misfortune while still hanging on his own.
It is not snobbish to watch Christiana Aguilera sing and just show appreciation for such a talent but never to take on her as my mirror. You know why? I realized my greatest prayer is not in wanting to be like anyone but rather just asking God to make me the best that I can be? If I spend my whole youth trying to be like this prominent personality, when will I stand on my own ground and bring to fulfillment the writings on my palm? Remember, found in everyone’s closet is fear and uncertainty.
Dearest, everyone has pain, some in greater measure, others lesser but we can carry on because we have the ability to bear it with our individual strengths fear for the clueless minds that have washed these truths away and have been bought by the songs of the moment, because for them, biological time ticks and still he that lives in pleasure is dead while he lives. So Lord here I am asking you to make me the best that I can be, for every beautiful face I see, I make an appreciation but will always lay to heart the dirty stuffs in their closet.

I watched Christiana sing, too, firstly, I think on Utube or was it on Skynews and she made me think of everything divine and I forgot bad stuff, bad people like you. Nice writing again, I must admit, lengthy tho. But nice.
