“We started from the bottom, now we are at the top”….one of my fav lines. It sure has its perks.
Well….am sure when all is said and done and we are here at this point..we are as lost as LOST could get.
We all started this journey..months a go, 2013 in the middle of july somewhat..tossed into a state and its city we had no ties no relatives no one to call our own….” To serve our father’s land”….
We came..separately, with our different backgrounds, beliefs, social standings and status..mother tongues and we learned to co-exist and adapt together in the rare’s of occassions and environment. We did pretty good for ourselves.
While we were taught and nurtured…we found pleasures within. We made friends..we made confidante’s and best budds..even some you’ll term “Alobam” by the famous phyno. Some people found brothers, others sisters..some fell inlove and some lusted and fell out of love…yet, despite the vains and pleasures…we held ontop our identities..somewhat.
…….Yet again we were separated aftar the 3weeks orientations and sent to more alien lands…to serve….some loved their primary place of assignments and others gloated and some others adjusted.
There..we made new aliances when the old ones where far away, the lucky ones continued when found together…others just floated through and allowed time to pass.
…..Its been months away from home and we all do feel a lil home sick, for family and the bonds of home. Others tend to move on with line in search of greener pastures..others clinging on to the hope of “what ifs’ and “what might have-beens”
……There comes a stage in your life where the people you meet now can either be your future or your past. You make choices and you tend to follow through or you don’t…..
These couple of months has bonded friends together, some where driven apart..others made family…love bossomed in the strangest of places…the laughter, the happiness, the joy, peace and serenity. Even the pride of being a “Federal”s child” as we were often called had its perks. The stress, the CDS meetings, the quarrels and make-ups, everything..we hated…we would eventually miss. Especially those people who have touched your life in ways you cannot explain.
The one you call sister, you might not see again..
The one whom you fell inlove with might walk away and not look back…
The best friend you made may eventually be your best budd for life….
The hearts you touched would forever be grateful to you..
The brother you made would always be a family to you….
Either ways…no matter how things turn out…..everyone has a choice to make…
To continue to keep in touch or to walk away and this might be a fleeting trail down memory lane.
No one knows tomorrow..Yes! But everyone can decide what they want their tomorrow would be like and then plan, work and motivate oneself towards it..Godwilling. God never handled anything down on a platter of Gold..”Ask and it shall be given”……even the bible isn’t against making plans for your future..just put God first and everything would follow.
…..So much joy,So much stress, so much of everything….and we have finally come to the end of the road where we end our service to our country…..Come june 5th. 2014. Though we thought it was never gonna end….but come on…at the end of the day…..its been fun$. Ainit?…
Some of us wish it would never end….we have done so much for ourselves…we learnt a lot..some even built up themselves….
We would always have the memories to carry us through….
From those trying moments from camp…to the stress of PPA’s…..and every other thing that must have gotten us rilled up…..”Its all Training for the outside world”….
We have done our path…therefore….we are prepared to go out to the real world and make something out of ourselves.
…….I’ll never forget the ones that made me smile and made it all worthwhile.
….The beauty of friendships…..the joys of a sister…the tenderness of friends..the care of a brother….the love of a lifetime….the blessings of a mother, the love of a family..the faithfullness of a God!!
….We have come this far.
We made it……
…….Most people who started this journey with us never made it thus far but we did and for that…..BABA GOD NONI!!! We are forever Grateful for your mercies.
NYSC#Memories#friendships#Love#Family#Ever’Afters and Never Evers…..its all about what’s’s next after Here….its up to you to make that choice…..
…..All I want to say at this juncture is…….
I am happy I met each and everyone of you…..am glad we were friends……
“This is were the chapter ends..but a new one begins…..its a time of letting go..or holding on to what’s dear to one’s heart..but if it has to end..am glad you have been my friend and I’ll always remember we have had the time of our lives…..
I am happy to love and be loved in returned. I am happy to have found families and bonds that I’ll always cherish. ..at this point…for those of us who wish to let go of this ..bond of family,friends, love,…its ok…I’ll never forget the time we all had..it was crazy-loving-fun and am glad you were my friend. We would say goodbye, and we would hold on tight to the memories that we would never let die.
But for those of us who would always always want our path that was crossed to be continued..hand in hand we shall work into the future..building more friendships, bond, love and hopes. ..these bond of friendships shall be unending…the stories of our progress shall be wriTten…where the water meets the land..where the tides come high and low..when memories are share…ours would be written in history……and all would know…….
…..At so so time….we were Here!! And we shall have the time of our life.
We may say goodbye..to the ones who left..but we would hold on tight to ourselves and the memories that we won’t let die.
“We have had the time of our lives..I will not forget the faces that was left behind..I will not forget the best of days. So even it this chapter ends, a new one begins.. But if it has to end, am glad you have been my friend at the time of our lives”………..love always!! ……..happy POP to Love! Friendship! Family! Nysc#Batch B 2014#…………Akwa ibom# UYO# …………….
