Kashere, Akko, Gombe state.I wish I had remained in federal university of kashere.There's no doubt I might, in that campus,I learned self-responsibility and management.I met friends who were kind and caring towards me.Conditions were favourable and conducive for learning and adventure.But, my ambition of becoming a petroleum geologist didn't allow me to stay.As the ancient, historic and extraordinary Kanem-Borno empire, precisely the prestigious university of Maiduguri keep visiting me in my dreams.©Yahuza Abdulkadir
When I saw a picture of you in a frame,I wanted to shout and call your name,Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!But death keep tearing us apart.©Yahuza Abdulkadir
Here comes the year 2021.I'm grateful to Almighty (Allah) who offers me the opportunity to witness the beginning of this year.The past year has taught me so much to remember.This is a year that I'll be more intentional about my goals, plans, and ambitions.I'm open to building quality relationships and networking which will shape and mould my future.This year I won't settle for less.I will go on, move on, try my best, to make it a year to remember in my course of life.I'll focused on my journey of self-discovery, carving my niche, speaking my say, learning, relearning, unlearning, and driving my purpose towards my own destination.I'll meet and get connection to people of great value who will change my life for good.I'll refresh my friendship circle.I'll avoid any friendship or relationship which will cause me misfortunes, regrets, and failure.I'll be myself.I won't change my personality to fit in other people shoes.I'll replace the tears of sorrow with joy.I'll move the mountains, walk thousands miles, overcome every obstacle, survive every adversity, and work hard to be the best version of myself.I am not Abubakar or Usman.I am Yahuza.©Yahuza Abdulkadir
We are afraid to let go,And just live.In the end,We all want to survive.Some moments in life,Are badly spent.Full of regrets,We have to repent.©Yahuza Abdulkadir
Dear Sir/Ma'am.Don't love me because you saw it written on my wall that I am a writer/poet.Don't show me care because you notice that I'm making a little progress in what I'm doing.Don't flatter me with sweet words if you know that you're saying it just to use me and achieve your own selfish interest.Don't call me sir/bro with a sign of respect if you really know that you'll go round and insult me when I'm not there.Love me, show me care, and respect me because I'm a human being just as you.©Yahuza Abdulkadir
A QUEST FOR PEACE.
To live in peace and contentment is now hard to come by.I'm lost within the maze of my mind and soul,My life Is nothing but a clear gloom,Who will help in lighting up my way?I'm scared of this tragic life we live in,Perfidy has become the sun that brightens the day,Strife as the shining stars during of the late nights.Jealousy and hatred has become the order of the day,This world is deep fire as it brings agony and woe to man,I don't want to live in this life anymore, yes am tired,I want to die in peace tonight.©Yahuza Abdulkadir
When I was a child;I lived life and don't worry why,I had no problems nor challenges,My only problem then was to quench away my thirst and hunger.My childhood memories were full of fun.I have now grown up to adulthood,I'm facing challenges every day and life is giving me tough times.There were times I felt frustrated, rejected, worthless and hopeless because my hard work is not paying.Life has not been easy at allI have read books on self responsibility, management and control, growth and self-motivation.Especially those books that talked about life in every ramificationI have settled to face the dangers and worst part of life.I have came to live in a society full of violence, robbery, abduction, rape, sexual assault and even murder.I've summoned up courage and developed confidence to fight my fears.I've chose to be brave and survive no matter how ugly life could be.I look in to the future with hope that better days would come I surrounded myself with people who can add value and growth in my life.I have the talents, potentials, and beliefs that my future will be bright ©Yahuza Abdulkadir
