This is what boredom does

It’s been a while since I put up a blog. And I know I should have a lot more to write, but I think I’ve been too busy to let my thoughts materialize themselves.

Anyways, I went jogging one morning very recently, and when I got back, I had a lot of questions that didn’t make sense running through my head… So I decided to write them down… I don’t have a reason for writing this… It just came out the way it came out.

If I sat on a street corner, shedding tears till I shed weight,

Would you walk on by, or stop and ask what brought about this fate?

If I was a soulful ballad, to opportunities long lost,

Would you listen to me and learn?? Or change the track and tell me to get lost?

If I was the song “I Am Not Afraid” by that lady Jill Scott,

Would you listen to me and learn to love, true and through?

If I was that lady with no legs, sitting near Daystar Christian Centre and you were passing by,

If I pleaded with you for alms… tell me, what would you do???

If I was a glass of white wine, filled halfway through,

Would you vex and call me half empty, or sip and say half full?

If I was like Amy Winehouse, hopelessly hooked on crack,

Would you try to help me get better, or give up and let me fade Back To Black?

If I was a sexy saxophone, played from the lips of John Coltrane,

Would you still rush about doing irrelevant stuff, or sit still and hear me played?

If you said you loved me, but I wouldn’t say it to you,

Would this make you hate me, or respect me for not lying to you?

If I whispered in your ear, the things I’d like to do to you,

Would your mind explode, or would you calmly tell me things you’d like too?

If I the 31st of December, 2009,

Would you look at me and wonder, just what you did with all 2009?

If I was a blind man, going down a path,

would you go outta your way just to make sure I never stray??

And that’s what I was thinking that morning. Anyways, I think sometime today I’ll take time out to write again… But for now…

B. E. Z people!
