In Terms Of Love
#WhatTheHeckMan Rants Christmas Edition by Adewus4real and F.M.S
There’s something about the bells
As they ring
The Christmas songs
There is cheer around
And barely anyone with a frown
Eggnog and the sorrows drown
The mood is festive around the town
But no one really knows what I’m about
I’m sitting here while everyone feasts
But I’m that guy with nothing to eat
See I’m usually here
Well most of the year
Abandoned shortly after the New Year
People unintentionally forget about me
Until the month with 29 in the leap year
I’m hardly fed today
Everybody is happy
With their families they have gone away
But I try to keep my disappointment at bay
I beat like yours
Faster when I get nervous
Even worse when I’m anxious
There is so much to received but very little to given
The cards swipe
The coins clang
The wallets drain
But many are still in pain
I’m an empty heart
That someone will come my way
Someone will actually stay
From sadness I try to refrain
But I swear
It’s only a matter of time
When the lights come down
That I’m filled with pain again
The cheer is superficial
The heaviness is residual
People are not truly happy
But everything is in red
And there is Jollof rice
So make merry
Today the year comes to a close
When next I’ll feel this
I will not know
But for now
I’ll enjoy the Christmas glow
When we finally call each other
And sing a new carol
This is a happy time
But I know what comes after
And that makes me sad
It’s that time of the year again. When there is commercialized love. Everyone seems to be filled with smiles and happy thoughts. I want that to be it! Happiness all around! But we need to sustain the feelings.
We catch wind of what is happy for a few weeks and once the New Year rolls by, we all go back to our various hustles and forget the spreading of the love. People only remember the cheer and love because we eter the final two weeks of the year. Sad but true.
I’m keeping this short today. My #WordsOfWednesday to you is that you keep the love flowing at every opportunity you get. Go beyond the confines of “family” and spread and give love. TO EVERY AND ANYONE.
Reach out to those who have no one to share these festive days with and be present for them. You are a vessel of love. Let it flow through you always. Give always as the world will continue to replenish you.
Today I want to say, I love you all! Merry Christmas and know that if anything, you have one person who has real love for you out there; ME.
Merry Christmas #WhatTheHeckMan Family!!!!

Merry Christmas to you too and all the fellow #WhatTheHeckMan fans .. Got to spread love 365 days a year !! P.s I would buy you a birthday pressie if I could , but you know Christmas being so close to your birthday an all and I was blowing money fast as an IJGB .. Shey you will accept groundnut ??😝😝😁
Yes I will!!!!
True it is important to sustain the love and happiness all year but like you said that’s not always the case. But the good news is that atleast there is that few days/ weeks of genuine happiness that people can look forward to. Exactly what makes Christmas unique and special, the genuine love and happiness that comes from/with it (and lowkey stress). Merry Christmas everyone ❤️💃💃.
👏👏👏👏👏👏 Love you too Sanmi!!! Let’s continue to spread the love like u said❤️❤️
Very very important to keep the loving flowing. Not just during the “season” but also after the season.
this love and happiness we speak of comes like the weather which shouldn’t be, but we all need to do well to make it unending..Merry christmas!
