Your hip hop band will fall apart with barely a performance to its credit.

But you and the LabRat will cement a friendship that will only strengthen over time. Rap lyrics will morph into snatches of verse people will call poetry. And you will soon become a metalhead, but don’t waste your time dreaming of being in a band cos you know you’re too damn lazy to learn an instrument. Stick to air guitar and headbang in your room, the crowds are much more appreciative.

Doing things formally is overrated. Soon, you will realize your confusion of how the world works is not madness; the world really is confused. And everyone else is just as confused as you. Yes, and there are other people like you. No don’t tell me to get out of here. It’s true.

The train

The bus

Crowded commuting

Sweat, dirt, pimples, the hot sun. Cursing that fireball everyday won’t stop you from developing an understanding relationship with it. Appreciate your brown skin, and the way you look. You will realize that the true key to looking good relies on just one thing; convincing yourself first.

Try and remember what Appa said. The gist of it went like this; half a mouth, four ears and four eyes; you will prosper in life. Friends with money, presumed hardship; don’t be burdened by it. You will realize that it’s life. And no matter where you’re sitting, you’ve always got the best seat.

Love, you already have more than an inkling of the truth. But you will go through a heady mix of it and find out for yourself. You will meet a girl in a year or so. But she will be ash compared to the fire that the next one will put you through. But I say do everything I did, or you wouldn’t be here telling yourself about it.

The girl after that you will hurt completely. And you will be thoroughly ashamed of yourself.  You will have a chance to walk away early, but you will be a ninny and give in to your emotions, and your penis. Chaos will come about. But you will also have a hell of a time. So you decide.

In a bit you will begin to rebel; learning a few things and wasting some time. Eventually, you will see that you had most of what you were looking for all along. Mama and Dada will always love you. Try not to take advantage of it? Your religion will come back to you masha Allah, stick to it.

You will get a little of something that you never had before; purpose. Your wrongs are just as much a part of you as your rights. But they are wrongs nevertheless, so try not to lose the lesson when you lose. Be thankful to God everyday for everything He has given you. And dude, that eyebrow piercing is going to teach you that fashion demands its own sacrifice. Wait and see.

P.S – This is a blog, on the internet. Yes there’s more than just porn in here.

You
