I could have talked about anything else tonight, but I choose to discuss them. 


Don't think too far! This will be long and elaborate, if I let you start the right way! 

Look up in Oxford Old Advanced Learner's Dictionary or any other, the word 'Them.' You might have a heart attack, generated by the immediate fear of trying to figure out how to eat up the entire definition. 

You might end up with a bursting brain that would make you require a bandage, to restrain your head from falling off. 


WHAT DO I MEAN?


Let's ride! 


Have you ever considered writing an equation, without fitting yourself in a beneficiary angle?

Not a triangle thing, but a real life equation; no pies or cake. 


Have you ever thought about everyone else, and not yourself? 


That's what 'them' is all about.


***

The car is broken? 

Now, the car is broken! 

Can we loosen this engine?

***


Let's analyse the word 'THEM.' 


We don't need much knowledge to get this right! 

Anytime you mention 'them,' you've literally just cast yourself out of the equation. 


It's a selfless kind of life.

It means...

You doing things at times, for no benefit!

You, doing things right, not because it's going to pay you! 

You, thinking of others for a while, not yourself... 


You letting that lady get into the bus before you.


***

This is not for anyone living in Lagos, biko! Throw punch for your bus!

***


For real, if you thought about others, you wouldn't try shifting that your leg in a public bus, knowing how dangerous your fart is.

That's drunk wickedness.


When you think of 'THEM,' you think of other people before yourself. 


I learnt one thing quick enough...

And it was to always help others achieve their dreams, without hoeing around for benefits...  Them.
