Self-love is a concept that is not usually promoted. So, we therefore decided to publish the poem below by Giwah Timi Ozofu, which she posted on her birthday. Who writes themselves a birthday poem? Rare, right? We first noticed it when it was reposted by her friend, MTN Project Fame Alumnus, Tolu Adesina who recently dropped a single Jemapelletolu under the Alyhills Records and Don Jazzy‘s Mavin Records. As we wish her a beautiful year ahead, we want you to enjoy the poem.
Giwah Timi Ozofu is a beautifician. She is your “bus-stop” for bridal hair, fashion, and makeup.
On her birthday yesterday, she posted this beautiful poem.
Thank you, God, for giving me another year of life
Thank you for all the people who remembered me today
By sending cards, and leyers, gifts and good wishes.
Thank you for all the experience of this past year;
For times of success which will always be happy memories,
For times of failure which will reminded me of my own weakness and of my need for you
For times of joy when the sun was shining
For times of sadness which drove me to you
For the hours I wasted
For the chances I failed to take
For the opportunities I missed this past year
Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet
And through it to bring good credit to myself
Happiness and pride to my loved ones
And joy to you. Amen.
Happy birthday to Giwa Timi Ozofu.
