Judith

Yes that is the name of my post. And it is also coincidentally (yes?) the name of one yellow girl in my course. Her name is Judith Bawa. And well I’m writing about her today. It was kind of a dare from Ayomide. So here I am, posting about Judith like I was dared to. (X_X)

Back when, before I became friends with Judith I used to think that she was this scandalous girl. She was everywhere. Most of the guys I knew had something to say about Judith. And well seeing as I didn’t know Judith well, I took their words and opinions at face value. (What else is a nigga supposed to do?)

Well things changed this final year alpha semester. One day, right before our ECO 419 class (Monetary economics, asin 419 you get the drift.) our lecturer was late and well Judith and I just started talking and well I realized that we had similar interests, (she has a crush on my crush. If you didn’t know that Rihanna was going to leave Chris Brown for me then you don’t know me. -_- )  And she wasn’t as bad as everyone made her out to seem. We skipped class and spoke for a couple of hours and well Judith is a fun person to hang out with.

She has even taken up on answering to “my crush” ( 🙂 ). All in all, I can say Judith is one of the nicest people I know, she is a fun person to hang with, there is never a dull moment with Judith, she is down to earth and real and she is a real yellow pawpaw. She is also a good friend.

I’m sure some people are wondering where I’m going with all this “talks” about Judith. Well I’m getting there. Up until I actually spoke with Judith I’ve had a low opinion about her, impressed on me by what I’ve heard about her but after we started speaking I realized two things: I actually like her (NOT like like, get your minds out of the gutters people, normal friendly like) and that you can’t judge someone based on what you’ve heard about them, (You shouldn’t even judge people. #ChristianFact.) Your relationships with people should be based on how YOU perceive and interact with them. Don’t let someone’s opinion about other people ruin what could have been a good friendship or relationship with someone. Decide for yourself how your relationships should be like.

I’m glad that well Judith and I became friend and she is someone I’ll love to have as my friend for years to come.

A Letter To My Lover

You were my first love. But I rejected your love to satisfy my own self desires and pleasures. I watched your heart break every time but I didn’t care, I was having fun. I watched your tears fall but I didn’t care about your pain only my pleasures. It got old, I wanted you back but I couldn’t find my way. Till I heard the soft whispers of your words and your gentle touch on my heart on the 5th of February 2013.

I found my way back to you and gave you my heart. This time I was serious. Your love overwhelmed me, changed me, now all I think about is you. A week spent loving you felt like a month and I was happy. Coming to seek your face is a pleasure. I would raise my voice higher to make sure you heard every word I said, I would sing to you with all my heart just to show you how much your love had touched me. Every step I took was aimed at pleasing you. You meant that much to me.

I only had to ask and you gave me without holding back, even when I had nothing but my heart to give back. On Valentine’s Day I took your love for granted, automatically assuming that you would be my Val, and not knowing that others wanted your hand. I was in the shower when I realized my mistake and I ran to write you a valentine poem and ask you to my Val. It was late but you accepted my proposal turning others away.  You even sent me cake when I had no gift for you. That was the extent of your love.

We recently celebrated our two week’s anniversary. I decided to fast knowing the feast you had for me afterwards would be great. And you showed yourself strong. I thought I had felt the extent of your love but you showed me more love than was humanly possible and I bowed under the weight of your love.

And here I am writing this letter just to say I love you and thank you for loving me even when it seemed like a hopeless journey.

To Jesus, my first love,

Ola.
