Imperfection is bae

The idea that someone should be a certain way, behave a certain way doesn’t necessitate they have to be it in an extreme way. I, for one, thinks there shouldn’t be no such yard stick for measurement as good or bad. We’re humans, made of emotions, most times conflicting. It depends on situations, circumstances or […]

The things people don’t say..

The words Cleave on to the roof tops of my mouth Out, from the fortress of my mind From the warmth of my hearts arse Naked, unashamed, into the spotlight Exposed to the eyes of scavengers Fangs of predators Devoured, devalued Food for prejudice, criticism This power that wields no force left in the hands […]

Feminism (April, 2016)

Today I’m going to share my first poem ever, yeah I know, it’s taken so much courage to do this, not that I ain’t proud of my first poem or I don’t feel it nice enough to post; something about it just made me feel I’m exposing a part of myself to the world. Sounds […]

The Clean Plate part 2

You see, there’s one thing we have little control over -the society. No matter how passionate about one is about the ills of their country, effecting a change is not a wake up and call thing. Even our past heroes laboured as patriotic as they were, I know our own independence was given to us […]

‘The Clean Plate’

“You deserve a clean plate” This is the best advice that should probably have been given to me many years ago. Or better still, “you deserve the best”. I needed to hear those four letter words. But you, you might have been told before or read it somewhere or reading it now. It took some […]

Be nice

As simple as it seems, it doesn’t really come off naturally to a whole lot of people. While some may be exceptional at faking it and would readily give a blinding smile, others can only manage a stiff jaw. You could call it pretense but at least they tried. Some credit should be given them; […]

The Internet

The internet For knowledge it was birthed To inform, uplift, nourish Not deform, surfeit, brainwash To validate, not relate And promote originality, not mediocrity We were all drawn to her And like Peter’s net A massive catch it fetched But then, it’s fabric soon got broken From misuse and abuse And all who couldn’t swim […]
