THOUGHTS OF A NIGERIAN TEENAGER
by Solomon Obi.
In my world of fantasy, where anything is possible, where men were men and where there was no night. These are wishes I never had, wishes I hoped will come true and my wishes are far too much.
I wish I was Superman, with my super strength, x-ray vision, enhanced hearing, wind power, super speed, flight power and laser powers, I will be unstoppable, I could fight my enemies and crime with ease.
I wish I was Batman, the greatest superhero-detective, with my gadgets I could fight the crime lords and protect my local town like Batman protects his city Gotham.
I wish I was Sherlock Holmes; I could be able to uncover mysteries, controversial murders and I could tell you what you did, ate, drank or had been with just a look at you.
I wish I was Ironman, I could make weapons no one could imagine and use them to fight for justice and like Ironman I would be a Billionaire playboy and we get the pretty ladies.
I wish I was Michael Jackson with my abilities, I could sing, dance and perform with ease and I would be the King of Pop and like him many Grammy’s to my name.
I wish I was 2Pac, I could be able to rap with ease and tell my story of my struggles in life for the whole world to know and I would be a legend.
I wish I was John Legend I could compose nice lyrics and play the piano with ease this would make me to be loved by all especially the ladies.
I wish I was C. Ronaldo I could dribble, score and deliver good passes with ease I would be the best player the world of football has ever seen.
I wish I was Michael Jordan, I would be the best basketball player of all times, I would be remembered.
I wish I was Muhammad Ali, the greatest boxer of all times I would be able to knock out anyone who dares me to a fight, I would be the greatest like Ali would say ‘’ I am the greatest’’.
I wish I was Michael Phelps I could swim in any water; I would be the greatest Olympian of all times.
I wish I was Leonardo de Capriole, I could interpret any role and act with ease and I would be a face you would not like to miss on TV.
I wish I was Moses; I would be able to lead my people to the Promised Land and be the meekest man on earth.
I wish I was King Solomon in the Bible, I would be the wisest man on earth I could woo any woman with ease and I would be the richest man that ever lived in this world.
I wish I was Nelson Mandela I would be ready to fight for my people even I go to jail for a long time, so long as I am fighting for a just course.
I wish I was Barrack Obama I could be the first Black President that America ever had and I would make history.
I wish I was Abraham Lincoln, I would be the best President that America ever had and I would be an icon to my people.
I wish I was Wole Soyinka; I would win a Nobel Prize for literature and be a force to reckon with in the world.
I wish I was Chinua Achebe I would be the great story teller and tell the story of my people so that they would know we existed.
But wait a second do I really need to be like this people before I can become great, well I think we know the answer. Look, all these people have already made their mark, I don’t need to be like these people who I am, is all I need to succeed in this world and be the best I can be. With the help of God I will become great.
