Hey guys, how was your weekend? Mine was a bit complicated, as I got into some trouble but I’m way better now.

Today’s MCM is just too apt, and is especially what we come across every day.

The typical Nigerian has no faith and all fear, all facts and no feelings. Their good intentions lie dormant while the bad guys seem to be winning.

The average Nigerian’s wonders when it’ll be better, when his life will stop blowing about like flags: When the job will come, when the wife will come, when the dreaded week will end, when the crops will show, when life will eventually happen, in the midst of this deadness.

Well darlings, just like Brooke Fraser, I don’t know why the good man will fall while the wicked one stands, I don’t know why the little ones thirst, I don’t know why you’re not there yet. But I know one thing though, and it’s that ‘The last shall be first’. Keep at it, keep to the hustle, no matter how much it doesn’t seem to be forthcoming. Keep to it baby, because one day

‘you who mourn will be comforted, you who hunger will hunger no more, the last shall be first, of this I am sure’.

I trust that this song brings you hope, and happiness, and to help you, even if just for a second, to look af the brightness of the future regardless of the darkness now.

Because, oh it will happen. The sun will rise again.

         Flags

Come, tell me your trouble
I’m not your answer
But I’m a listening ear

Reality has left you reeling
All facts and no feeling
No faith and all fear

I don’t know why a good man will fall
While a wicked one stands
And our lives blow about
Like flags on the land

Who’s at fault is not important
Good intentions lie dormant
And we’re all to blame

While apathy acts like an ally
My enemy and I are one and the same

I don’t know why the innocents fall
While the monsters still stand
And our lives blow about
Like flags on the land

I don’t know why our words are so proud
Yet their promise so thin
And our lives blow about
Like flags in the wind

Oh oh oh oh

You who mourn will be comforted
You who hunger will hunger no more
All the last shall be first
Of this I am sure

You who weep now will laugh again
All you lonely, be lonely no more
Yes, the last will be first
Of this I’m sure

I don’t know why the innocents fall
While the monsters stand
I don’t know why the little ones thirst
But I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first

-Brooke Fraser
