To an audience of self By ‘Lanre Bucknor

You’ve been too hard on yourself

Way too hard

Sometimes

Once a while

You need to give yourself a pat

On the back.

Look into the mirror

Smile,

Fake one 

Even if you can’t muster one

Squint those eyes 

And see how beautiful 

You are

Its not as bad as it seem

It’s never as terrible as you feel

You not as messed up as you think

*
You are beautiful

Life is beautiful

And because you still breath

A lot can be done

A lot will still be done

Today,

Tomorrow,

And the next

*

Be thankful

For what you have 

And what you are yet to have

For when you get it

That thing you want

That you crave so badly

You’d surely want more

*

Because, you see

Everyone you meet

Is on a mission

Everyone you see

Is fighting a war

*

And so,

Yours isn’t exclusive

It is only exclusive to you

*
Take a step back

Backtrack a bit

And see the silver lining

Or just maybe 

in the horizon

A rain of gold dust

Lanre Bucknor writes from Lagos and talks first to self before anyone else. ‘Lanre believes we human overwork ourselves on stuffs we have little power over such that we overlook the beautiful life that we have but then, that’s who we humans are and will continue to be. But in all things, we should take time to reflect and really, we’d be appreciative of who we are,what we have and what we’ll become.
