Planking (Laying Out) My Thoughts

Disclaimer: If any part of this post is ambiguous or completely missing it’s because I’m blogging on the move, while trying to process official and personal thoughts.

It’s been a while since I last came here,
I almost don’t know why or maybe I just don’t care.
I am beginning to face the truth; I really can’t stay away forever,
Sweet or bitter, I’m ready for whatever,
If I get hurt I know I’ll recover.
It isn’t so bad all the time or maybe it is,
I have been hiding for so long,
Behind the wall I put up so strong.
It’s time to break it down and give it a try,
But wouldn’t I be creating room for people to pry?

*** 2 meetings and 3 hours later ***

The Israelites were so lucky *sigh*
There were simple signs everywhere,
Commandments on tablets to guide them,
Why can’t it be that easy anyway?
I’m tired of trying to figure it all out,
Maybe it’s time to take the plunge again,
If I succeed you all will be happy for me,
If I fall, I’ll pick something up and rise again,
Yes I’ll rise, I’ll rise, and I’ll always rise!

*** Back to the office ***

The world seems to be experiencing momentary imbalance the offshoot of which is seasonal madness expressed in different form. While I was trying to rap my head around windeck and comprehend Cabo Snoop’s style, he shot us with Prakatatumba. I still think that dance is a mockery of a feat of epilepsy; anyway, you all haven’t seen the last of crazy things.

This morning I woke up to ‘Planking’ all over my timeline. There’s no definition for it. It’s neither a sport nor an exercise. I guess people just need to burn excess energy. But then I hear it’s the Australians that came up with the name after the English invented it so I can imagine their brain was freezing over at the time.  For everyone who’s still wondering what Planking is...

I've been able to piece together your random thoughts and can happily say welcome

As for planking, I refuse to see it as fun until people begin to plank between a Crocodile and an Alligator and stuffs like that

MsJB said...

LOL @ Ilola
Not sure if this will make your body feel good :))
All I can say about planking "Your eyes will continue to see strange things as long as you are alive"
I don't even get why this was trending on twitter too! SMH

MsJB said...

and I forgot to add, all the best!
Don't worry it'll be alright, just be hopeful
