I'll miss you ma

Category: , ,

Just came back from Benue…hoping to get back into ABJ life, the election fever and blogging (got loads on my mind). But I guess stuff is going to be different now. Lost my mum yesterday…car accident…just finding out…God knows best. I’ll miss you ma…

Edit (20th December, 2006)

I just want to say thanks and God bless to all (online and offline) who commiserated with me on the death of my mum; It sure did mean a lot to me. Her passing away came as a shock to me and I’m still grieving but life ain’t over and I still have to air out this little blog bits which have been in mind for long.

You know how some people think that when you’re born your destiny is already mapped out by God, well I object to that. I think God creates us and gives us the freewill to do as we please. Right or wrong it’s our choice, determined by whom or what influences us. God just sits back and watches the show and intervenes when he wants to or is called upon too. God finishing homework on our fate before hand, I don’t subscribe too…that would probably bore him out.

Still on destiny, I don’t subscribe to the thought that we have only one true life partner and thus won’t get the best out of life except it’s with that person. That’s small mindedness. I believe God gives us the freedom to choose from a range of people who are compatible with us, and all things being equal we can blossom with any of them. This is evident from your past really great relationships; it’s just a pity that they didn’t work. There’s always hope of another for the widow, widower or broken-hearted.

Talk about displeasures and men who give all the attention to the girl (ogle) when both sexes are before them comes to mind. The scene in the Mayor’s office in the film: Barbershop 2 is a good example of this. Yeah I know of the opposite attraction thing but hey this is a meeting of three not a dinner date of two. Such men probably had it tough growing up and thus can’t win girls fair and square without the use of the executive shine.

Ironic instances: lepa (slim) girls who fuss over food. "TRAE you’re lazy, you ain’t doing enough work…TRAE all you do is eat…TRAE don’t finish the food oh…TRAE I’m hungry stop disturbing me". Funny thing is unlike Eldee of the Trybesmen I eat well but I ain’t fat, I work hard and enjoy my meal hard; but they work loads yet have little appetites. Quite unfair don’t you think? Anyways there were always wonders in life.

Last word: many “mum” and “missing you” songs exist; the lyrics are often too theatrical but no doubt about it I sure do miss my mum…she went too soon.

Job is done, raising ghetto kids in the hood/
You was my strength to carry on and now I'm good/
Job well done, you live through your sons and your grandchildren/
Jesus finally got his bride, mummy dance with him/
… (From the song “dance” by Nas)

Haven't been to your blog in a while. Sorry about your loss.

Damn, I usually just read without posting, but had to post on here. Take heart man, jisike, my prayers on you and your family.

awww, i'm deeply sorry about your loss. As soon as i saw this i was reminded of a close friend who lost his mum the very yr he graduated. The most painful part was his mum was just coming to see him for the first time in 5 yrs since he entered the university when she passed away in a car accident.
May God grant you strength, grace and comfort as you shoulder on being the man mamma always dreamt you would be.
Now you've got your own chance to make her proud of you and i'm sure she'll be smiling down at you telling the angels "now that's my trae-z"!

Trae, My sincere condolences to you on the loss of your mother.

Trae...hmm i'm so sorry. Accept my sympathy... it's a tragdey happening when everyone is meant to be jolly... God knows best why things happen to the people we love..... Stay kool bro.. i gat ur back for always.... peace and one luv

Trae Z, men Icant say I know what it is to lose someone so dear to your heart, but at times like these I know its best to break down so that you can gather up the pieces and stand again. My deepest sympathy and may our good Lord give you the fortitude to bear the loss. Johnny blaze
