It is really no news in this world. People all over the globe have become fighters in various spheres because they have been tested by family and people they call friends. They know that to be even with all these things that most times clamps on the very being of one’s mind- something which most times deadens the sense and allows for crazy thoughts- they must fight it! Yes. They must fight it if living is still a priority. Hence, the need to put on a fighter’s will.
To be a fighter does not necessarily means that you have to use your fist and give jabs on the face of another in anger. No! It is beyond that. As writers, we have faced trials that would ordinarily and speedily have made us throw in the towel but we are too damn tough for defeat on the basis of cotton. The dream is bigger.
Today, I fought with the words of my mouth and it was damn swift and sweet. I fought until tears gushed down the eyes of my audience. It was sweet victory. All I want to do today is appeal to that fighter inside of you.
Stop sulking. Stand up. Speak up. Don’t allow anyone rubbish your art and not get a jab or hard punch to the face with the same words he/she read or heard.
