" Each day you wake up, God is there with you. He wakes you up so you can start the day. Each day you have a package out in front of your house. You open the package and your day is inside, with all you are doing today. Open that package today and find EVERYTHING that's inside. Not just some things but open it fully to enjoy the package, and share your day with God today, because God has shared this gift with you."

" A wise man told me that a man's weaknesses are his downfall; a broken heart feeling rejected in love. If he learns how to hold himself, he will become strong and smarter. If he doesn't learn, he will remain a little sissy and a crybaby. So hold yourself and look forward in the light and hope that someone will be there; hope that wise man is right."

I wanted it all to stop
I wanted all the pain to die
I wanted my broken heart to heal
I wanted to be me

I wanted to be loved
I wanted all of it to stop
I wanted people to understand my situation
Who I am.

I wanted them to see me
See the person I wanted to be
I wanted to see the light
I didn't want to say goodbye

All I wanted was all the pain to die
I wanted to be happy, to be free
All I wanted
Was to be me.

" Not every person has to like you, but don't think that something's wrong with you. Do you think god is perfect? But still there are people who don't like god. You deserve to be loved; just believe that and if they don't, their loss."

A few days ago, I thought I wouldn't achieve the grades that I want for GCSE level. I doubted my own ability, and in doing that I put pressure on myself. Now I know that it doesn't matter what grades I get, as long as I have done everything to the best of my ability.

" How is one supposed to fully live life when all he sees around him is agony, heartbreak and war? When you look beyond those things what do you see? You see happy things... such as Peace, Friendship, Family, and most importantly...Love. It's only when we look past the bad things, will we truly learn to live."

" My greatest accomplishment was the day I discovered my purpose. Ever since then, I've being so excited. I'm already executing it and I also discovered that we have to be inspiring. Over here in my country, Nigeria, teens are so comfortable in mediocrity. They don't have an identity, no inspirer. What I'm trying to say is that I'm starting up an organization that would kill this mediocrity in them, giving them an identity so we would have more inspirers and the world would be a better place. Hello teens! What do you see in your world that needs to be changed? Make a bold step today to attempt to achieve that DESIRE."
