Why Marriage?

Warning: lengthy post, but read till the end. It will be worth it. I love ‘love’ (romantic relationships), it’s the best thing since sliced bread and avocados. Everyone who knows me well can attest to this. When I’m in love with someone, every one close to me knows cos I want to do everything and […]

If I had an HYMEN

Throwback Tuesday #boychildday #savetheboychild #boysarenotstones #Nov11th I found the phrase I jotted a month ago (and forgot) which will now become the title of this poem.
