MY THOUGHTS AS I SUBMITTED MY LAST CLEARANCE IN NYSC
It is all going to be strange and new to me for a while and I wish I would end it greatly. It is an adventure that might take me across continents. The adventure may probably include wars, tragedy and sorrow.
To live my life will require faith faith, love and courage. It will take me by its hand and teach me things I will have to know. I will be abreast that for every enemy, there is a friend. I will have to know that all men are not just, that all men are not true.
In furtherance, that for every scoundrel there is a hero, that for every crooked politician, there is a dedicated leader.
Using my energy and strength for 100 naira earned is of far more value than a dollar stolen. In my next adventure, it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat, it is far more better to try my best luck than never try.
I will embrace and learn how to gracefully lose, and enjoy winning when I do win.
Vehemently speaking, I will be gentle with gentle people and will be tough with tough people. I will steer away from envy and learn the secret of quiet laughter – how to laugh when I am sad.
There is no shame in tears, there can be glory in failure and despair in success. I am happy to tell you that I will scoff at cynics. I have been learning the wonders of books, and also giving time to ponder the extreme mystery of birds in the sky, bees in the sun and flowers on a green hill.
It is pertinent for me to have faith in my own ideas, even if every one tells me they are wrong. I have got strength not to follow the crowd when everyone else is doing it. I am endowed to listen to every one, but also to filter all that I hear on a screen of truth and take only the good that comes through it.
I will sell my talents and brains to the highest bidder but never to put a price tag on my heart and soul. I will support humanity in my best of capability in humility with my great sense of humor and I will never humiliate. So help me God!
