Hi, I am AdeAsh, I am going to be illustrating some ways and channels via which you could draw inspiration. Yes! cannabis and alcohol gets people high/wasted. But after like 30 mins/ an hour, you fall back into reality as it is,not as your elevated mind plays out. I know this because i have messed with drugs before and i don’t want to lie and say it wasn’t fun at that moment, but the fun don’t last for ever. This is because the trips you get in while high/drunk cannot sustain you forever so you need to re-hale/ have another shot which then sort of makes you an addict.
People have their reasons for picking it up but i am not intrested in asking why. It is good to be calm, and hear your heart beat somewhere by a flowing river and in that moment, if i were you, I would quickly run my hands into the water so you can feel its calmness… That is inspiration!
You could be watching someone dying and you don’t want them to die. At that moment you are inspired to be with them until they pass away – if God wills, for who are we to question the maker; the one they call Alpha and Omega. That kind of inspiration you would want to argue is down casting but in that moment you are there, seated looking up to God for a miracle. You are not high, you are inspired! We need to find the real inspiration. It could come in many forms. Music is potent, it is both a cure and a curse sometimes on the mind that wants to get lost ( don’t laugh ooo @ Mary Badmus. Thanks for your comment on ‘Heaven’s gate’), it is sense making now. We should learn to appreciate people that are there for us when we need them for that too is inspiration and i am not high. I want you drawing inspiration from other channels. Some times, they may not make sense in the moment but soon enuogh they will, and it will be like a de-ja-vu! Birds, airplanes, ships and trains. Doesn’t it surprise you how they all move? well if they don’t, its ok! Stream along because life is beautiful and you can see the beauty in the face of a father walking his daughter down the aile or let us try to capture that moment a son makes his mama proud… She radiates beauty that hoozes the amount of sacrifice she made for her kid. Now, are you still going to say, ‘That is not inspiration?’ Hmmm… i am running out of words to say. There is hope and inspiration around you. Reah out to it and get inspired!
AshView is about picture poetry. These pictures in a way connect with the poems i attached them with. I wrote the poems drawing inspiration from the pictures. I hope you enjoy the poems and please share so someone out there can connect.
Finally, big shout out to Vivian for helping me edit to the best of her knowledge. Also thanking Adeyinka hassan (General Chan), CEO NaijaLikerz for partnering with me on this project… So for the next six(6) days, you are going to have the opportunity to read these poems which will feature one per day exclusively on Naijalikerz.com. Your comments are welcomed and at the end of the day i hope you get inspired so that we can do this again… Gracias… This is AshView By AdeAsh.
