I do not know – Fola Daniel Adelesi

I do not know who you are.
I do not know who you are not.
I do not know what you do.
I do not know what you do not do.
I do not know where you live.
I do not know where you have not lived.
I do not know what you have.
I do not know what you do not have.
I do not know what you like.
I do not know what you do not like.
I do not know what you look like.
I do not know what you do not look like.
I do not know what appeals to you.
I do not know what will not appeal to you.
I do not know what turns you on.
I do not know what turns you off.
I do not know what inspires you.
I do not know what makes you despair.
I do not know what keeps you going.
I do not know what gets you stuck.
I do not know if you have dreams.
I do not know what your dreams are.
I do not know if you have a passion.
I do not know what you are passionate about.
I do not know if you read.
I do not know what you read about.
I do not know what country you came from.
I do not know if you are patriotic.
I do not know who you know.
I do not know who knows you.
I do not know who wants to know you.
I do not know who you want to know.
I do not know what you are running after.
I do not know what is running after you.
I do not know where you are coming from.
I do not know where you are going to.
I do not know what you see.
I do not know what you cannot see.
I do not know what you have heard.
I do not know what you have not heard.
I do not know if you grow.
I do not know what makes you grow.
I do not know if you groan.
I do not know what makes you groan.
Lest you take me for a nobody for what I do not know
Since I seem to know nothing about what you know
Let me confess what I know.
I know that no matter what you know
How to make impact you must know
And the world you live in your impact they must know
For what you know I do not like to know
But what impact you make I like to know.
Your life is a combination of others’ impact, I hope you know.
What impact you have for others I need to know.
How you want to do it I do not need to know
Why you have not done it I do not need to know
What you need to do it I do not need to know.
All I want to know is not what you know
Because when we seem to know
Without making a mark then we do not know.

Im with you, though the world cup affected the time we didnt know the rescheduled time till we saw it on thrusday. but so far youre good. i suggest you change your outfit as said by the panel, however make it unique still, maybe use a BOw Tie instead of the conventional ties by others, then try if it goes inline with topic youd be given to suddenly stand akimbo during presentation make sure your expression changes when this is done. meet you at the top
