About Me

My photo
Hiya! Just a quick intro :) I lived in Nigeria for more than half of my life (so far) before moving to England and I have seen the best and the worst of both worlds. I was greatly inspired by the #OccupyNigeria protests and this blog is my way of #occupying. A lot of us compare African countries to the Western countries and I will mainly be talking about the positive things that I have observed and learnt in my few years of living here. Payme’s 2Cents is for all who dare to dream to see changes in their lifetime. It is for those who dream to see environments where 'helping' thrives. I will be giving my2cents worth on how we can work towards getting things to change for better. It would be great to know your opinions, so please leave comments. Remember to keep sharing posts that you enjoy. Follow @payme_my2cents. Thanks a lot for visiting!!! Enjoy my2cents :).

UNITY - Ogunyemi Bukola (Superblogger II Winner)

"Upon the conduct of each, depends the fate of all" Ogunyemi Bukola

Views from high towers,
Make others look smaller.
This is the illusion of ego,
The difference is mere distance.

All beings are tiny under the sun,
This is the reality of our worth.
From hills or valleys, the shortest man
Will clearly see the sunshine.

We have learned to fly the air like birds,
And swim the sea like fishes,
But we have not learned the simple art,
Of living together as brothers.

Our hearts ought not to be set,
Against one another.
But set with one another,
And all against evil only.

Imagine all of us as brothers,
Nothing to kill or die for,
Imagine all the people,
Living life together in peace.

Like a sculptor, if necessary,
Carve a friend out of stone,
Realize that your inner sight is blind,
And try to see a treasure in everyone.

Alone we can do so little,
Together we can do so much.
In unity lies our strength,
As sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.

We are each other’s success,
We are each other’s harvest,
We are each other’s business,
We are each other’s magnitude and bond.

We must learn to live together as brothers,
Or perish together as fools.
We must indeed all hang together,
Or we shall all hang separately.

Let’s all speak the language of love,
And see all men as our brethren,
Let doing good be our religion,
And together we will be as one.

Let us think only of the heights we must reach,
And preach this message to one and all,
That upon the conduct of each,
Depends the fate of all.

We are only as strong as we are united,
And as weak as we are divided.
All for one and one for all,
United we stand, divided we fall.
