Nigeria At 50 Day 5; A Home Is Still A Home


Previously on Nigeria at 50
Day 4; Tisha: http://diaryofanigeriangal.blogspot.com/


A bride- to- be is full of excitement, anticipation, joy and uncertainty.
She can't wait to be one with her husband.
What lays ahead she can only imagine.
Truth be told.
She can only hope for the best.


The two become one and a house becomes a home.
The home becomes her pride and her joy
The one place she will always find peace love and joy.


That is her hope for the best.


As we celebrate 50 years of independence we can only hope for the best.

Hope that our country Nigeria will one day stand as the giant of Africa.
Hope that she will find herself good leaders to rule her.
Hope that she will provide for her people the bare necessities in life.

Today as i write this post, I am still hopeful.

Hopeful that her change will come, hopeful that things will turn around, hopeful that things will one day be alright.

As long as we keep this hope alive.

Her change will come.

Happy independence.

"The two become one and a house becomes a home..." absolutely true, once we can understand that though of different tribes, tongues, ethnicities we are (all) one as a nation then, we can keep hope alive that we shall become a 'home'.

Such a simple, truthful, and hopeful message. Our country is a bride-to-be.

A home is still a home. That's the most powerful line I've read all week. Truth be told, it's the most sobering too.

Hope is a good thing and that's what will keep our dream alive until it's realised. I have hope for our country too.

2 become 1...hmm
The boundaries 'they' have used to define us are non-existent. We are one. One home. One love.
Interesting insight!

And it is that hope that underpins our development indeed. Great write-up.

Hope is what we need Tisha! I like that thought, its the silent though hopefully visible theme I used to write my own piece for Naija. Great post!

Nicely written. Let us keep praying that the seed of discord among us is destroyed before we ruin what is left of our Nation.

lani said...

change will surely come ...

Naijalines said...

Her change will come as we work at it too. She could be described as 'work in progress' just as transforming a house into a home takes work.
