IF EVERYBODY...IF NOBODY...THEN - M.B NWORAH




If everybody loves you...
If everybody smiles at you...
If everybody is happy to have you around...
If everybody hails you as a man of the people...

If everybody accepts your stand without questions...
If everybody likes your way of doing things...
If everybody speaks well of you behind your back...
If everybody praises you even when you fail...
If everybody sees you as a god who can do no wrong...
If everybody is always on your side...
If everybody let's you have your way...
IF NOBODY...
If nobody insults you...
If nobody tells you when you're wrong...
If nobody is your known enemy...
If nobody is always out to criticise you...
If nobody is always eager to hear what you'll say in order to say otherwise...
If nobody corrects you...
If nobody advises you...
If nobody is kind enough to tell you the truth to your face...
If nobody stands up to you as a challenge to inspire you...
THEN...
Then look very well,you might have remained in one spot all the years of your life.
Then you might have locked  yourself in your own mediocrity and gullibility.
LOOK WELL...
And finally,look well;you will surely see about 100(or more) million adult Nigerians in this state of confusion and self-neglect.
Till we get to the Promised Land,I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
