Beware the ides of March was a popular phrase in the famous and award winning book Julius Caesar. There is nobody that read that book that wouldn’t know this saying. It was a warning to watch out for betrayal or misfortune. It’s often used in political contexts. The term ides of March refers to March 15—the day on which Roman Emperor Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 b.c.e. For this reason, it has become associated with bad omens, betrayal, and misfortune.
Standing on the existing right for poetic licence I deconstruct ides and reconstruct it to mean not something misfortune, bad omen, betrayal etc to something glorious, exhilarating, eureka and profoundly mind blowing.
I have since yesterday when the first day of Feb dawned became conscious of this month and what it brings, holds and gives. A lot comes with it, only those who are violent in spirit takes that which brings eureka to their spirit. I have taken victory from its pack. From the first day of this month to its last day the song Ada Ehi “Open Door” resonates with my spirit and will become my signature tune
*Na nmeri oh, na nmeri oh, na nmeri oh
Na nmeri oh, na nmeri oh, na nmeri oh
Forever and a day, eh-eh, ei
Forever and a day and a day
O putaram open doors
Na nmeri oh
According to Your word, oh
O putaram open doors
I’m singing my song
Victory ! Victory omeperem open door
February isn’t bringing anything but victory and open doors.
