My Day One Crush – Completely Amazing

My Day One Crush – Completely Amazing

My Day One Crush – Poem by Ahaneku Nkeiruka

A sickness of the heart, I have long

Suffered but dismissing as nothing

It has remained permanent as the firmaments of heaven

A ton of helpless doses have I tried

But it spreads through my heart

Snuffing out my breath

Help me less I die!

“Love in the heart” so I speak of

A dose of your love and care each day can do wonders

So the doctors have prescribed

A million pictures of you have I with

My eyes stolen. How I missed my steps

Bumping and falling when lost in the

Admiration of your chiseled face

Beaked nose, cotton lips, heavens smile!

When you fed you brothers baby

I wished I was the one. When you

Played and boo boo booed on her stomach

I craved it was me.

Oh! Let’s play love and on the bed be a clapping of hands

I wish you could spend as much time

With me as with your books and guitars

Most lucky is your sister whom you

Tickle and cuddle and love, though

Platonic. Fortunate is your towel that

Romances you each day

Most lucky is your toothbrush that

Kisses you each day

Could you add ‘est’ to the dear you call me

And make me your dearest?

Could you change the “I like you”

You tell me to “I love you”

You never told me?

Could you increase the calls you give

Me from “once a month” to trice a week?

Elevate me to closest friend, I ask you

Could you understand the deepness of

My love for you as same as the pacific oceans?

Madness I call it. Dreaming each day of you

Eating, drinking, watching, and wearing only your favorites.

Day One Crush Poem by Ahaneku Nkeiruka

Day One Crush Poem by Ahaneku Nkeiruka

I have fought gallantly this fiery feeling

But I have been defeated honorably

And, now I can shout from the

Mountain top, I love you! I love you!

Without apologies. I don’t care if

The African society calls me strange

The cock should chase the hen

Not the other way round, they say

But rare it is for Miss peacock to

Let down her beautiful wings

I care less if you reciprocate my love

After all, the earth has not returned

The heavens love. In wishing your

Love, I have rode like an equestrian

Wishing horses were wishes

And whoop! If afterward my love you return

How forever I will dance

How eternally I will laugh

Always wearing a smile like our

Dear old ageless sun

How to Discover your Talents

Ever wondered if you have talents at all? Ever wondered if you are good at anything aside sleeping and waking, then eating? O! Well, the good news is here for you. EVERYONE HAS TALENT. Yes, I mean everyone ‘you’.

You have just not discovered it yet. Or perhaps, you are like me “Multi-talented – good at most of all” which keeps you confused about just that one thing or two things you are most good at. Funny enough but I discovered my own talent. Well, not very late but late in my second year, second semester of my 1st degree in the University. Can you imagine? Talking was it. Yes, you heard me, ‘talking’.

Yes, You Can Discover Your Talents

I later discovered that above all I like never to shut up my mouth, I am crazy about talking – talking in gatherings, assembly, motivational talks, seminar etc, you name it.

Talking inspires me. I could hear you say ‘talking’? But yes, anything at all could be your talent. It could be cooking, it could be that just with needle and trade you can sew a perfect outfit for a get together. It could also be hair making.

In fact, anything you have the natural ability to do well is your talent. You just need to be focused and develop it. Talents incorporates what you can do best more than others; something you are ease with doing – something you do effortlessly – that thing you are guru at – a genius at – a master at.

What do you like Doing?

That thing you do that wows everyone and no one can compete with you over that thing. It is also like your purpose, your center of gravity that continuously pulls you to itself, it is who you are. You are comfortable doing it and it is until you discover it, you have not discovered your talent yet.

How to Discover Your Talents - Advanced Methods

Discover your Hidden Talents With these Advanced Methods How to Discover your Talents Ever wondered if you have talents at all Ever wondered if you are good at anything aside

However, discovering your talents could get a little tricky as all will surface and claim they are all your talents. Of course you can have as many talents and you can use all as well. If you have none at all, stick around and read carefully, you will discover yours.

However, this amazing article will assist you greatly on how you can discover your most dominant talent as well as discovering your talents if you think you do not have any. Your most dominant talent is like a pie chart.

10 Advanced ways to discover your talents

Most people when asked what their talent is, the negative is always the response – Uh! I don’t think I have any talent. People are so wrapped up in their day to day activities that they forget what their natural abilities are and so they waste these strengths for years.

Fortunately, finding your talent is as simple as A, B, C.

Here are 10 Unfailing ways to discover your hidden talents even if it is buried 10 feets deep beneath the earth surface.

10 Advanced Ways To Discover Your Talents

  1. Always Give a Listening Ear

This has always been rewarding. Now do not rebuff or completely take for granted people’s examination of you. Remember you do not see yourself. It is always people who see you. People interact with you and therefore can spot your talent.

When accessing yourself, you can be lenient, biased and subjective. But however, getting an objective view about yourself can help put things right.

Listen to their spontaneous views and remarks. When you argue, do people seem to say ‘Hey! Why don’t you become a lawyer? Or when you sing, do people marvel and say, Oh! You are an angel when you sing? When you act on a stage, do people trill to exclaim ‘you are infested by muse? All these matter and they help.

  1. Ask Question

In line with listening, you could also go out of your way to ask questions. An African proverb says “A questioner does not always miss the way”. Now, do not just ask questions, ‘Ask the Right People Questions’.

You may be confused, but a long list of people confirming a particular talent you have could go a long way in solving the puzzle by merging their findings with yours.

You could also be nursing a feeling that this or that is your talent. Perhaps you have a burning desire to uphold Justice, you love arguing so much and all the rest of that.

Now, a quick inquiry from a lawyer, most appropriate a judge could do the magic. He or she could be “Oh! I had the same feeling and then I just knew I would be a lawyer!”

  1. Find Out What is a Piece of Cake

There must be one or two out of the rest of things you can do that you do effortlessly, while others struggle or muddle their way through. Determine that thing that is super easy for you, what a piece of cake that even if you are woken from sleep to do it, it is yet easy. Therein lies your talent. It could be playing guitar, it could be drawing, it could even be solving people’s problem. Now, your talent could be ‘giving people great advice when they explain their misfortune to you; your talent could be giving advice.

How to Discover your talents

  1. Do You Enjoy What You do?

Another great step is to discover if you like what you do. Talent should not be a punishment. I could remember during my high school days when some students rushed into science department due to the prestige therein but rushed out when the topics started flying.

Some of these students slept as lecture was going on. Some could not come to school at all due to fear of the course or the teacher.

This is lack of interest, and enjoyment. Now, find out what you look out for every day and minute to do. Something that makes you smile as you do it. Something that gives you joy. Something that you do over and over again without being tired or bored, there lies your talent. Kick off from there.

  1. What You are Passionate About

As I stated earlier, I am a fan of talking and talkers; what are you crazy about? Some people stay in the studio for hours. Some people stay on the field for hours. Discover that thing you can stay for an elongated period of time doing discover that thing you are glued to.

  1. Flashback your Humble Beginning

Oh! Yes, look and reflect on your past. Try reaching the things that you have done before, the things you have enjoyed. The things you have been rewarded for doing in the past.

Look at the times you have excelled. Try reaching your childhood days and what it was like. What did you do constantly as a kid? What did you enjoy doing? What were you known for?

The virgin period of your childhood experiences could really go a long way to reveal some of your deepest talents.

  1. Challenging Times

Another very important strategy is to thing about your toughest times, your most challenging times and how swiftly you handled the situation. Perhaps, it was when a burglar tried breaking into your house when you are home alone and you saved the day. This if useful talent – How swiftly and intelligent you handled the situation could go a long way in deciphering your exact talent.

  1. Think about your Most Successful Times

Think about the times you succeeded. Times you were applauded. Times you were raised shoulder high. Perhaps it was when you wrote an enticing and engaging topic in a blog that cause huge traffic and much talk about.

Perhaps it was a little piece of creative art that you advertised in a gallery and every one praised your work. Perhaps it was a talk you gave in women’s forum that everyone still talk about today. All these are pointers.

  1. Try out New things

Unfortunately, your talents may not rest on the things you presently do or did. Why not try out new things like writing a novel, or starting a business or designing a cartoon, you may be surprised.

You must not do what others have done before – Think about Mark Zuckerberg that established Facebook. Prior to him, there was no notable social media platform in existence. Most times we underrate ourselves but you never will know what you are capable of doing until you go outside your comfort zone.

Most times you don’t know that you are that kind of person till you start becoming that type of person. You just have to give yourself and life a chance and you may be surprise or rather surprised at how incredible you are. I say, take the risk!

Self Discovery

In all, do not forget to concentrate on yourself. Of course people can help a great deal on discovering your talent but it is also germane that you carved out a personal time for your own personal self assessment and discovery and self reflection.

Nobody knows you more that ‘you’. It is therefore important that you remember that existential and essential decisions are made by you. No one will do it for you and so make out time out of your tight schedules to thoroughly examine yourself for yourself.

Remember, the discovery of your true talent is a kick off to a greater you and greater heights.


There are some factors to be considered when discovering your Talents

Factors to Consider

Talents can be Created; This entails that you can create talents for yourself when it seems you don’t have any. One may ask, ‘how can I create talents for myself?’

The environment you are in could determine how slow of fast you can discover your talents. In other words, when your environment is not conducive enough for discovering your talents, you will be slow in discovering your talents. And when the environment is favorable, the discovery of your talents will be fast whenever you determine to discover them.

However, the type of companion you keep can also play a role in the discovering of your talents. When most of your companions or friends are talented, the talents they display could trigger you.

This is because they will be influencing you in one way or the other and you may be ashamed to exist in the midst of friends who are all talented when you have not yet discovered your talents.

Again, when your friends have almost not discovered their talents and therefore do not show-up any special talent, then you can hardly cultivate the zeal of discovering your own talents.

Talent Discovered from Love Making and Relationship

Do you know that most lovers have been conditioned to discover their talents through their relationship partner? Does it sound strange? Lovers, in a bid to impress their loved ones, try to do extra ordinary things. In the process of doing these, they discover their talents.

True love life Story that will motivate you

I will tell you a very interesting true life story that will motivate you.

When Robinson, who is from a very wealthy family, fell in love with Nicole, he has no talents to display. This is mostly because he has not thought of discovering his talents because, for him, there is no need for that, since there is much wealth in the family already.

Nicole is also from a rich background but he admires people with amazing talents. She wasn’t fully interested in Rob’s several cars and wealth. She was so much concerned about his talents.

When Rob found out that he could actually impress her if he can discover and display his talents, he started inquiring on how he can discover his talents. Nicole assisted him by identifying some of the things she has already found out he can do. Rob picked up from there.

Within the space of two months, Rob discovered that he is very much talented in two major things;

  1. Art works &
  2. Music

He is therefore a good in art works and he draws Nicole with his drawing kits every now and then. He is also good in music and uses his voice and guitar to make Nicole happy even at the beach.


I hope by now, you must have gotten these 10 advanced ways of discovering your talents. And I hope the article is much helpful to you. Feel free to ask questions and leave opinions and suggestions below in the comment box.

Essence of Marriage

[By Ahaneku Nkeiruka Portable] – Essence of Marriage –

There are love birds

But Certainly no lifelong love birds

He-goats love she-goat for her anus

And the chicken has given his mother eggs to carry.

Marriage is only human

A magnetic pull of two hearts

A wonderful union

Beyond smiles, friendship, and love.

Beyond Criticisms and advice

Beyond Rings and Vows

Beyond relations and friends

Beyond wealth and looks


Beyond dowry and rites

Beyond religion and blessings

Beyond witnesses and signatures

Beyond kids and sun.

It is simply what it is

It is simply meant to be

It simply is

It simply would be.


About the Poem

Surely, a layman in the art of literature may not understand the hidden/internal meaning behind every line of the poem. However, the poem is written in a very simple language, but for the sake of clearance and to avoid ambiguities, the analysis will be made.

The poem extols the deepness of marriage. Marriage is one of the scariest missions to embark on, due to the possibility of being with the wrong person or final break (Divorce). It is therefore not a child’s play.

       Poem Title                            Poet
Essence of Marriage             Miss Ahaneku Nkeiruka

The Poem Essence of Marriage;

The poem “Essence of Marriage” seeks to reveal and expose that the concept of marriage, contrary to what people over the years have thought, does not rest on the shoulders of any concept at all. No! No! No!

People tend to attach marriage to many things that have proven faulty and unproductive. you hear people say ‘Love is the ultimate in marriage’ whereas it is crystal clear that even Love has been unable to hold marriage.

Love is simply not the sole determinant of a happy/long-lasting marriage. How about compatibility, the right chemistry, background among others? But Hey! Don’t get the poet wrong. In as much as marriage is not dependent on anything yet, it needs the support of such attachments as indicated in the poem by the poet to extend.


Poetic Analysis

In the first stanza, the poet shows that there is no ‘love qua love’ among animals. All are just after the business of mating and every illusory love was geared towards reproduction and pleasure. A bird after expressions of love to another will still un-apologetically fly into the arms of another.

Notice that the goat has high ‘libido’, voracious sexual appetite. Study the chickens; a cock impregnates the hen and goes to another while the chicks of the hen later impregnates its mum. It’s a vicious circle sometimes.

Stanza Two;

In Stanza two, the poet presents marriage as solely meant for humans. The 8th line shows that marriage is above smiles, friendship, and love. In other words, Saying that friendship, and love are the main ingredients for a happy marriage is faulty. It leads and then bows out.

Line 9;

Line 9 shows that even amidst criticisms and advice given for and against a prospective union, that union can be without it.

Marriage is also beyond rings and vows. All these are just symbolic and traditional. Even with the costliest rings and vows “I DO”, many still cheat right on their matrimonial beds.

Marriage is also beyond relations and friends. This set of people (parents, brothers, sisters, etc) cannot guarantee a successful marriage.

In fact, avoid a third party in your marriage. Marriage is also beyond wealth and looks. These things will, over the years, prove only ephemeral.

Line 13;

Line 13 shows that no matter the church or mosques one is wedded in, no matter the blessings your father or mother, grandfathers, and mothers, great grandfathers, and mothers, marriage that will dissolve will dissolve.

Dowry and rites are what the poet sees as “Fulfilling all Righteousness”. Many have had bride prices paid 10 times over (an exaggeration though).

Line 15;

Line 15 shows that even if you gather the whole world to witness your marriage or sign signatures both in churches and court (court marriage), yet it cannot hold marriage or guarantee the genuineness of the marriage. – Essence of Marriage –

“Beyond Kids and Sun”. Again a person with kids outside of marriage cannot because of that engage in a regretful marriage. Similarly, being in a bitter marriage with 3 to 4 children cannot prevent that marriage from collapsing.

“Beyond Sun” – As well, no time is perfect for marriage. Many say it is because one married early, that was why the marriage was not successful (Juvenile Delinquency reasons and all that) whereas many in those early marriages have had sustained marriages till today. -Essence of Marriage –

Last Stanza;

The last Stanza summarizes ‘marriage’ while revealing that if you strip marriage of all the aforementioned attachments, it will still survive. There is no comfort zone to marriage as all (aforementioned attachments) have failed.

Marriage is a nature’s call. It is like finding the right shape to fill in a vacuum shape. If a vacuum shape is shaped circle and you try to force in a triangle, it certainly would not be possible.

Biblically, find your missing rib:

The better half/soulmate. The consciousness should be, being with the right person and not making of forcing a visibly wrong marriage workable.

However, though marriage has no strings attached to it, yet it needs all these concepts for a better, happy, long-lasting, successful marriage.

INDEPENDENCE: Mind Blowing Poem About Nigeria

INDEPENDENCE

OPPROBRIUM; by Ahaneku .N. Portable

It’s Nigeria’s INDEPENDENCE day!

Though dependently independent we lay
Since 1960 we haven’t seen the sun’s ray
And the poor haven’t their say
But the rich have doubled their pay

Today we’ve emblazoned Nigeria on our streets,
On our flags, our clothes, our hats
But not in our hearts
Our tears Flood the Niger
Seeing a country of high and might
Of Odyssey’s and promises

Mired by miscreants and corruption
Weakened like Chad in strength
Diminishing as the valorous in sickness
It embitters our hearts
And murders our  fight

Seeing we are myopic in thinking
Without visions, without missions
Except evil passions
Had America and Japan not survived oppressions

Arise NIGERIA!
Disentangle from the
Shackles of colonialism
Emerge a new!

Happy 58th anniversary to Great NIGERIA!!! 

Happy INDEPENDENCE Day!
