COARSENESS OF WELLNESS



IT IS BETTER AND BEST FOR US
TO KNOW THAT
WE NEED LIFE TO ENJOY THINGS
IT IS DEVASTATING TO BELIEVE THAT
WE NEED THINGS TO ENJOY LIFE


THE HEALTHY PHYSICIANS ARE BECOMING SICK
INCESSANT STRIKES WEAKEN THE CAPACITIES
OF THE TAKEN HIPPOCRATIC OATH
AND NARROWED THE
SPREADING POWER OF LICENSES


IF WARNERS AGAINST DISEASES,
ARE ABUSERS OF ITS RISK FACTORS,
HEALTH COMMUNICATION
HAS LOST ITS SENSE ORGANS


ROAD TRAFFIC CRIES OUT FOR HELP
NO ONE ANSWERED, AND IT GOT UPSET
BREAKING PEOPLE’S BONES
SAPPING OUT INNOCENTS’ SPINAL CORDS
RENDERING THE LIMBED LIMBLESS
THROUGH AUTOMOBILE COLLISIONS,
BECAUSE NO VOICE WAS AMPLIFIED IN HER FAVOUR


DRUGS!
CONCEIVED TO RESTORE PHYSIOLOGY
AIMED AT DESTROYING PATHOLOGY
ALONG WITH ITS PLACENTA, SIDE EFFECTS
HAD SPOKEN AGAINST DUBIOUS
PRODUCTION AND TRANSACTIONS
HAD BEEN DISTRESSED, MAJORLY
BECAUSE OF UNAFFORDABILITY
IS NOW DESTROYING PHYSIOLOGIES
AND GREASING PATHOLOGIES


SOME SOILS ARE LOAMY
SOME ARE SANDY,
WHILE OTHERS ARE CLAY
LOAMY SOIL IS IMPOVERISHED
POOR SANITATION TOOK IT FOR GRANTED
AND ITS NUTRIENTS BECAME CANCEROUS
THROUGH IMPROPER SEWAGE DISPOSAL
METASTASIZING TO AFFECTING AGRICULTURE


WHAT OF OUR FINGERS?
PARTICULARLY THE FINGER BEDS
CAPABLE OF HARBOURING SUBSTANCES SUCH AS
SKIN SPECKS OF DIRTS,
FROM ITCHES BY SCRATCHES
WASTE HANDPICKING, AMONGST OTHERS
MOST OF THE TIME FORGET
ITS TIME OF CALL-TO-ORDER
PREDISPOSING TO INFECTIOUS AND
NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES


HYGIENE MUST TAKE HER WEAPON
ACCOMPANIED BY A BALANCED DIET
TO ANTAGONIZE ANTAGONISTS
OF HEALTH & WELL-BEING
BECAUSE IT IS A GOAL
A SUSTAINABLE GOAL
A GOOD HEALTH IS GOOD
AND WELL-BEING IS GOODLY WELL

Celestine, S. Reuben

I am a Global Citizen from Lagos, Nigeria, passionate about making music that Edifies, Writings that Enlighten, Teachings that Transform, and Productions that Inspire. I am a rising youth diplomat and education advocate; passionate about youthful education; sustainable decent works, good health and wellbeing, transformative and quality education, and peaceful interconnectedness. Over the years, I had participated in Conferences, Webinars, Seminar and Workshop with International and Global citizens from different nations (Malaysia, Colombia, Vietnam, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, India, and Nigeria just to mention a few) as a Volunteer speaker, Resourceful speaker, Host, and Organizer. In 2021, I was the first Nigerian to be featured in the U.K-based E-Learning platform “Futurelearn” and the First Author from my University (The Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria) to publish an article in the Journal of the International Youth Neuroscience Association in the United States. I had my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Anatomy and would love to further my studies in the field of Neuroscience extensively. I graduated from the University with over 150 certificates of learning/personal development from different online campuses of different nations as well such as Global Citizenship Education, Futurelearn, World Health Organization, and Non-Governmental Organizations to mention a few. I am still grooming for greatness and there is no sign of slowing down. more…
