A Lockdown Story

By: Dayo Oyelola

Well, I will call mine “My Lock Up Story” or what more can best describe the situation you are told where to go and when to go, what to eat and even how to eat it.

You’re placed on a compulsory diet because you don’t know how long your “sentence” is.
I even bought some books to keep me company. I also created a schedule on what to do per time, but all that didn’t last a week.

The news became a dreadful thing to watch. Every normal thing became sacred to the extent of even “ordinary” greeting.

In all, there is only one thing I look forward to every day, and that is just to breathe again.

A Note From Eden: Dear Dayo,
Your story is a masterpiece of truth and light, piercing through the current darkness in the world today.
Calling it a masterpiece is no hype, because what else can we call a story that is able to trigger series of emotions in one swift. From the laughter it evoked, to it’s relatability. Your story is one that leaves the one in solemnity in the end. Thank you for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light that you are.

Much love!!

I didn’t even do the things on my schedule for up to one week. I started a book, I didn’t finish. An online course I later left and many others. I was just overwhelmed with everything. Still we are grateful for life because everything will not remain like this

Mankind will never forget this phase. Our lives are not being programmed. “don’t hug, don’t touch, don’t come out, eat garlic and all the rest. I pray this ends soon, whatever it is. Because sometimes I dont know really know what to believe anymore. Still the best is just to breathe. Thank you Dayo
