ThePanic of Growing Older

 

Every human has the Panic of growing older; don’t we? “Bayo read your books when you get to secondary school, there’s so much time to enjoy when you get to secondary school.”

Bayo reads and gets to secondary school

“Bayo read” when you get to the University, there’s so much time to flex, to party; don’t worry” is that not what we’re all told when were younger? Was it not the anticipation of futuristic enjoyment and peace that spurred us on to strive, to read, to struggle?

Now some of us are now twenty, some forty, some fifty; even some are approaching eighty. Have we now stopped striving?

Have we now become satiable? Man, being who he is, is always toiling. Even till our knees become weak; when we can barely see anymore, when we are riddled to a chair, we keep toiling endlessly

The thing that drives most people is the panic of Growing Older; no one wants to be outdone by the other. That panic of growing older is what makes people to say;

“Mi o gbodo yo ni setting”( I must identify with my peers)

When then will this panic stop? Perhaps in the grave? When will the anxiety of growing older abate? When we’re no more?

Your comments and opinions are welcome!

Teemu Pukki
Norwich striker Teemu Pukki has now been involved in eight Premier League goals in his first five appearances, scoring six goals and providing two assists

Defending champions Manchester City suffered a shock defeat at Norwich City as Liverpool maintained their 100% start to the Premier League with victory over Newcastle to move five points clear at the top of the table.

Norwich took an early lead through Kenny McLean before Todd Cantwell doubled their advantage. Sergio Aguero pulled one back before the interval but Teemu Pukki sealed victory with his sixth top-flight goal, before Rodri hit a late consolation as the Canaries held on to win 3-2.

Two first-half goals from Sadio Mane in the early kick-off saw league leaders Liverpool overturn Jetro Willems’ early opener and see off Newcastle 3-1 at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino was a first-half injury replacement for Divock Origi, and the Brazilian was in sublime form, setting up Mohamed Salah’s strike in the second half with a superb flick.

Tottenham and Chelsea both secured big wins, while Manchester United returned to winning ways to end Leicester’s unbeaten start to the new campaign.

Spurs scored all their goals in the first half of their 4-0 home win over Crystal Palace, with Son Heung-min grabbing two either side of a Patrick van Aanholt own goal to put the north London side three up inside 23 minutes.

Erik Lamela also scored before the break, lifting Mauricio Pochettino’s side up into third place, with Palace in 11th.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham scored a hat-trick in his side’s 5-2 win at Wolves, but was also on the scoresheet at the wrong end.

The 21-year old’s three goals gave Frank Lampard’s side a comfortable lead inside an hour at Molineux, but his slight touch to Romain Saiss’ header helped Wolves pull one back. A second from Patrick Cutrone reduced the arrears further, but Mason Mount added a fifth for the Blues in stoppage time.

Manchester United edged out Leicester City 1-0 at Old Trafford courtesy of an early Marcus Rashford penalty.

The striker was felled by Caglar Soyuncu in the seventh minute and then slotted home from the spot, and the England international’s third goal of the season was enough to give United their second win of the campaign.

Sheffield United had a goal ruled out by the video assistant referee in the first half, and then saw Moussa Djenepo score a brilliant winner for Southampton at Bramall Lane.

Oliver McBurnie had the ball in the net after 52 minutes but John Egan was shown to be offside – and to make matters worse for the Blades, striker Billy Sharp was sent off late on in the 1-0 loss.

Burnley salvaged a point with an injury-time equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw at home to Brighton.
