30. The Road 

The road will never swallow you. The river of your destiny will always overcome evil. May you understand your fate…….

This is the final post of the series, the 30th post. The road from here is the Road. The road has always been ahead of us. We travel miles in our rooms, flying at high in sky above the clouds. We are on the road to sing, to laugh, to grief and find success. Our life on the road needs us to keep our eyes squared. To be our eyes squared is discipline. Life itself is a test of discipline, to keep within limits of ones space. 

To be a rebel, a cheat, to cut corners, to have a sexual fantasy, cloaked in secrets – that is the daily temptation hovering over us. Restraint must hold us till we can stay in place and fulfil destiny. 

I have been on the journey, this journey of known destination. A destination of immortality, to see that we can be more than dust and generations to come can hear our names and find a glorious mark to exceed. 

I have found the road, taking mile by mile, finding conquests and windbreakers, pulling my anchor firm this I reach the shore. I find amazing travelers on this road finding their spaces of happiness.

Thank you the Onigbindes, Oyeniyis, Adejolas, Joseph Amenaghawon, Sade Ajala, Dolapo, Kola Egbeyemi, Seun Oladapo, Kola Kelani, Yemi Adamolekun, Mariam Edun, Gbenga GIWA, Mrs Alatishe, Abiola AFOLABI,Niyi Agunloye , bosses,mentors and friends and all those who coped with my imperfections. Thank you those who On my with bowls of praise finding delight in the glorious work.

 I am thankful to them for their bounty of kindness, for leading me on. The amazing people have been good to me and I am happy to be on this journey with them. We will all fall off at a point, giving way for those behind to leap ahead. 

I am happy on this Road, it found me, I am bathing in the Zeitgeist. This is the world conspiring with Grace of the Almighty working for me. I will keep pressing on, to be a good man to his community,  family and friends. Here is to many years ahead to the 70s and 80s lived in sound health and enduring purpose. 

That you so much for reading. The 30 posts, though full of errors, you read in pain just to be part of my story. These are true stories, of my life, a few are incomplete, a few can’t be told. Here are years ahead to wax more interesting narratives found on this journey. Thank you.

This is my beautiful prayer for you:
…….Suffering will never destroy you, but will make you stronger. Success will never confuse you or scatter your spirit, but will make you fly into the good sunlight. Your life will always surprise you”
