Colours in our Closet

Guest writter: Doyin Akintayo


Sometimes in our lives. We all have pain. We all have sorrows. But if only we would just shut up and realise there are others who suffer worse things than we do, perhaps we would tread life with better judgement.

I run away from clingers. I know you do too. All they do is take, take, take. But they never give. I like to receive as much as I like to give. Giving without receiving feels draining. Receiving without giving feels like cheating. So, I ask that we do our best to give. That way, we find joy in receiving.

Do you seriously think we are the only ones in closets? 99% of the world is. They have only figured out a way to keep us in ours. When you come out, you’ll see.

Cloths in my closet, as well as yours, have colours. The closet is a dark place. That’s why we find it hard to see the colours. 99% of the world loves colours. They want us to show them ours. They want us to stay in our closets and still show them the colours of our clothes. Yet they say we are the confused ones. It’s zero help to let their confusion confuse us. They stay in their own closets far more than we (or they) realize. They know little about what they truly want.

I know. It may sound like gibberish. But think about it. Who isn’t looking for answers? Who isn’t hiding something? Who doesn’t have something to protect?

We are all looking for answers.

The colours of your clothes can give answers to those who need them. They’ll say you inspired them. They’ll say you gave them a reason to be true. They’ll say you gave them strength to win their battles. It won’t matter if you both shared the same closet. It won’t matter if you both struggled to come out of different closets. It would matter that you made a difference. You showed them your colours.

Sometimes in our lives. We all have pain. We all have sorrows. But if we would look and see, even though only through the key holes of our closet doors, we’ll know the joys that come

The Bible says, that though sorrow may last for a night, joy comes in the morning.

A little here, a little there…summing up to a bunch of NONSENSE!


I sat on my table, placed my legs on my chairs and I couldn’t help laughing at myself simply because I don’t know what I believe anymore, did I just say simply? Everybody seems to be making some sense these days and every quote is a punch line which I can’t help but gulp down my throat. I wish it enters my stomach where I know that sometime later it will pass out through the right source; but no, it enters my heart from my throat and leaves me a little confused. A little confused here and there and then I have a bunch of big confusion and I don’t know what I’m living out anymore.

Maybe we should look at some together:

I hear that love is a beautiful thing and it’s good to be in love. I guess you have heard that too. Then, I node in agreement.

Next I hear that love does not exist or that love is dead and nobody loves anybody. You can only like somebody. There I go again, I node in agreement like I have received some life line to save me from impending doom.

The question is how can I live these two when I accept both?

All men are the same; evil and deceitful but then I hope for a man like my father. Tell me where they meet please.

All Women are trouble and problems and some would say; necessary evil but behind every great man is a woman. When evil started aiding greatness or when problems define virtue is what I’m trying to understand because I believe both.

Being good doesn’t really pay. It’s better to be bad and live long than to be good and die early. Its sound true to me

Then next the police are looking for the bad guys in town for breaking the law. Then I say why not leave them or should they?

I could go on and on about this start of turmoil my environment has created in me and it doesn’t help that I don’t know the truth to hold on to. This could really be about you right now. I want you to know that because someone, especially someone you respect says it doesn’t make it right, because someone does it doesn’t justify it. Get up and feed yourself with the right information.
What you believe in is what works for you. You can’t be bigger than your concept.

You ask how:
Read, Read, Read. Great minds read. Read books on matters you are in conflict about. Feed your mind with things to help you grow.

Talk to the right people, elders and spiritual heads or counsellors.

Mind what you watch and the music you listen to because many times they give a vague or truncated view of what really is.

If you are a Christian, then the bible is the best way out but off course with the help of the Holy Spirit.


The Fact that One is Rose and Another Lily does not make either of them less a flower.

I smiled as I looked into a picture of a damsel smiling all by herself. She could have been a reflection of me. She was beautiful to me and I seemed to love her pure essence but I have never thought I was good enough looking like that.
How many times do we look at things and wish it was ours, look at people and wish it was you, flirt with someone’s dude or girl and which you had them instead of yours and you really forgot God gave you the best shoot but you really never go around appreciating them.

I once read a response from Victoria Beckham; David Beckham’s wife to red carpet host and I was wowed. I said to myself this is a wise woman. The question Victoria was asked was about a lady flirting with her husband and that it seems her husband was enjoying it. How does she feel about it? She waved it off with her hands and said that is not a problem and when the red carpet host kept bringing up suggestions she answered, don’t worry I will take care of it. She didn’t put down her husband nor did she put down herself.

Sometimes we don’t know how power we have in ourselves, we don’t get to appreciate in ourselves nor do we believe in our abilities, this is a major difference between a success and a failure. Remember it is written, God has given you all need for life and godliness.
Peak says, “Its in you”.
Be grateful, contented with all God has endowed with for its sufficient for your use for right now. He would give you more and that includes your abilities and looks when the need arises.
