YOLO is for Fools!!


Note:The above heading is not to provoke anybody,am trying to express my feelings for the so called YOLO community..

I wasn't much aware of the abridged term YOLO,until it was popularized by the 2011 song "The Motto" by Canadian rapper Drake.YOLO is an acronym for "you only live once"..this term is much used by youth this days implying that one should enjoy life, even if that entails taking risks..

YOLO is an acronym that managed to pick many allies in youth culture,almost every youth uses it in social networks and it is among the common hash tag used ,the nutshell word has then invaded fashion and its properly  used in merchandise worn by teenagers such as hats and t-shirts..

Why lie the acronym has managed to cause million of disasters,the YOLO attitude has slaughtered many youngsters,pretending they careless ,they party all night ,unsafe sex and heavy drugs taking..we have all seen what YOLO attitude can get you to...The word has been criticized for its use in conjunction with reckless behavior, most notably in a Twitter post by aspiring rapper Ervin McKinness just prior to his death that described driving drunk at 120 mph (193 km/h): "Drunk af going 120 drifting corners #F***It YOLO." 

YOLO attitude has made teenagers drop out school claiming there's nothing good with it,many of them have an aspiration to look like their favorite rappers,may it be Lil Wayne,Drake or Rick Ross who are well known of popularizing the acronym ,who they planned to release a joint mixtape entitled YOLO.

We all remember of a young witty Tanzania teenager from Arusha who lost his life after taking some heavy amount of Syrup admittedly claimed he was trying to imitate his role model Lil Wayne..its not the only case we have had of,recently teens /musicians have lost their lives.

A study was made and it was said that many teens/youths don't reach their goals due to the acronym YOLO.. Many would just make all they want their needs,having unwanted affairs ,having friends that have no value to their life's,trying to be who they are not...being number one pretenders,chasing women and sex ..some become disrespectful to parents and valuable people..Others will want to try heavy drugs which in the end they get addicted or get killed.

One thing we don't understand is YOLO is just a bitchy abbreviation ,or in other hand i can say its a deceiving acronym,if you think am tripping you are wrong ,i have seen this from friends some that thought they have it all, better they live now and not later,they lost the meaning of living and now they are all regretting..some had to leave school to babysit kids that their fathers are unknown ,some are serving time in prison and few have lost souls....

Today’s young purveyors of YOLO,all i have to say is choices...your choice can either build you to a strong successful lad or can make you inevitably sit on your ass..

"In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility."  Eleanor Roosevelt....
