Second Half Resolution..


When you feel
Your heart’s guarded
And you see
The break started
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me
When your tears
Have dried form cryin’
And the world
Has turned to silent
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right

Here with me


Oh yeah, I listened again and again and yet again and believe me it all looked as if I’m just following the lyrics allover for the very first time…
The song has just spoken to me and I felt a heavy shield loosen its bolt on my heart
It dawned on me this morning that 2009 is fast rounding up its cause
Soon we will all shake hands and give out the same ol’ warm embrace as we wish one another “A HAPPY NEW YEAR”

Yesterday someone just came into our office to see my big boss.. though he was not available, the guy decided to drop his message –as according to him, the message should be attended to with immediate effect.
The message was on my table and curious me decided to satisfy my urgent “curiosity kills the cat virus”
Biko, no be me get lerra o (abi letter deni) believe me when I saw the so-called sample thing the guy brought from the Corporate Comms dept of the company, I burst out laughing.
Chineke o, na so all my colleagues just gather wan do looku looku, and of course they tuned on to my lane as we all laughed with water streaming down our eyes.

What the thing is abi? No worry I will tell una and I know una go hisss…. Shureeeeeeee! (As in sure kelebe!) Believ me some people no get work… gaskia!

The guy brought a sample of how this year’s “Seasons Greetings” card would look like and need the approval of my big boss. Shey you see why I said una go hisss no be small?!...lol
For July?... sorry June as it was yesterday anyway… ewo! People no get work.

Why would you be designing Christmas card in June? Beats me sha. Maybe na me no understand abeg make una make me understand… biko!

Why this illustration?
It narrows down to the fact that this thing go do us all like film trick.
Sooner than we expect, December 2009 will come knocking on our doors and hey! It would be the ned of another year once more.
What really were your new year resolutions in 2008? (December 31st to be précised – you know that day you went to church for the new year’s eve)
How many of these dreams and aspirations have been fulfilled?
On my own path, I get plenry (as in planty – need to redefine my ghetto slangs) and believe me I’m yet to see the fulfillment of even daya! (as in one in hausa)

So you can now understand my predicament o, when Brandy’s Right Here (Departed) lyrics starts making a whole dose of sense to me even after listening to it a thousand and one times before (No be my fault o… I just like the song die)
But I refuse to break down in deep depression ‘cos I have come to the realization that it won’t get me past my door.

I need to refuel…
I need to believe more in me and make me become what me want to be…
I need to work harder to see to the fulfillment of the dream of MOI…
I need to network right with the people that has been ordained to take me there..
I need to add more zeal and enthusiasm to my approach to my job…
I need to have all the fun too and make life a worthwhile place to live for me and others..
I need to lighten up and loosen up all work makes MOI a priry (as in pretty) dull bimbo…lol
And so do you?

Even when it seems like hey… nothing is worth achieving no more
Or if it looks like you’re so down and disappointed at the out turn of the first half…
Look up sweets, there is a silver lining right there on the sky, dunno if you see but I can see it..
And it only reminds me of one thing… I WILL GET THERE STILL… the obstacles are only there to streghthen…

Happy new Juli July to you all…
Make good use of this second half, you’ll sure be a better person for it…
Make I dash una Brandy’s lyrics to enjoy..lol, quite difficult uploading videos on my blog and I don’t know why,but will try see what I can do about it…lol
But the lyrics still go do sumrin (as in something)

When you feel
Your heart’s guarded
And you see
The break started

When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me

Dark child
You’ll be right
Here with me
Oh-oh
You’ll be right
Here with me

When your life
Is going too fast
Off the train tracks
I can slow it down

Just when you think
You ‘bout to turn back
Scared you might crash
I’ll be your ground

{Chorus}
When you feel
Your heart’s guarded
And you see
The break started
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me
When your tears
Have dried form cryin’
And the world
Has turned to silent
When the clouds
Have all departed
You’ll be right
Here with me

I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right

Here with me

When you’re so trapped
And there’s just no key
And you can’t breathe
I’ll breathe for you

The fire’s got you down
On both knees
And the walls
Are closing in

But I’ll be breaking through

And when you feel alone
I’m a be ya home
When others come and go
Ya know I got you

{Chorus}

I will be
Your strength
Your shelter
Shield you
From the rain

When you feel
{Chorus}

I’ll be right
Here with you
You’ll be right
Here with me (3x)
Yeah
……

Fancy-Free said...

True talk o but I dont have to worry much cos I made no resolutions this year. Or shall I say my resolution was to live freely and make no plan for the future, just live one day at a time and then next year get serious. So far am on the right track but I get the off days where I start to plan.

Sassy Trends said...

Good for you Fancy free luv...
But dont you think it's more cordial to at least have a plan for the year so we dont go hip hip all ova...but well, guess what works for one does not work for anoda...

Thanks for breezing in dear...

Interesting lyrics
I agree with you
on your plans and all the 'I need to, I need to'

The year is running out so so fast.

And as for the guy, I don't blame him, he is being pro-active, before he knows it , November will be here, and you people will tell him its late already.

happy new month to you too.
