Don’t want it now, you’ll love it later…

Open your mind and imagine what I’m about to tell you. See yourself in a place you’re happy with those you love, having such a great time, laughing and sitting down outside in a comfortable environment, while the sun is out and everything is beautiful. This beauty seems too good to be true, and it…

From bleeding heart to bleeding brain Pt II

It was getting very dark. Thanks to the beautiful and efficient supply of power in Borno, as well as the abundance of fuel (I’m being highly sarcastic, if confused), there was no electricity to at least turn on a light bulb or charge a non-solar torch. I was walking from the compound towards the house…

From Bleeding Heart to Bleeding Brain Pt 1.

There is something about mistakes that makes me ponder a little. Maybe it’s how inevitable they are; or how surprised people are when they happen. Maybe it’s how unpredictable they can be, and unlike death, they keep happening to the same person again and again, time after time, until he or she passes away. But…

Give the mirror a second chance

Every single day I look in the mirror, And that’s because I’m vain Looking beautiful is the hottest liqour; It makes me forget about the pain I’m looking in the mirror but only skin deep It’s just outside beauty I care to see Wishing my hips were not so steep Or I could set my…

Forgive yourself

Have you ever had those moments when you remember something that you regret and you still feel the pain like it just happened again? Was this regret something you did, or something that happened because of something you did? Was it embarrassing, cruel, foolish or simply unnecessary? Does it make you want to go back…

There’s Nothing Hotter than a(n) F(igure) 9

Okay, this is about to be a very controversial blog post, and damn, it is so hard to come up with an intro for it. I dunno where to start from; should I explain how Figure 9 is actually hotter than Figure 8 first( because a figure 9 entails that the girl has even wider…

Screw the Society!

This life is full of sooooo much confusion. Should I try to look pretty or not? Should I try to lose weight or not? Should I care about fashion, should I put make up on, should I go to the gym? Should I change, even if it’s for the better? We are so used to…

HYPOCRITES

There are hypocrites everywhere Hypocrites here And of course hypocrites there In your presence they act like they care But at your back it’s very rare All you do is try to be good But at your back they eat you up like food Oh! Yes they are two sided And what they’ll do is…

Dearest Nnemdi,

There comes a moment When it feels like all your loved ones have left you When it feels like all those who care are gone When it feels like you’re left alone In a world filled with so many people That you can’t trust But there also comes a moment When you have to step…

Let them in

It’s so hard to suffer and smile You prefer to cry for a while Not because of depression But for the expression Of your imperfection You wait There’s nothing to on, but faith For God’s intervention You say your intentions But let me just mention this You have your ups and your downs You have…

Wandering eyes

There I was, lying on my bed and staring up at the ceiling as I meditated on something deep that I heard in a movie I recently watched. “There are wandering eyes everywhere. Sometimes, you can feel them all around you, can’t you? And sometimes, your eyes wander too, wishing it had something that belonged…

Just Die

Since last year alone, 11 people in my family have passed away. Or were there 10,or were there 12? Not wanting to count, let’s just say my dad spent more hours planning burials than he did planning his day. I won’t lie, sometimes, I get really scared of losing my parents each time they travel,…
