Five Things

Seyi, I wanted to write about so many things, say so many words but… everything became engulfed with so many emotions. I promise to make this short… Instead of my usual 10 reasons, I want to do just 5 today.  Our first encounter was different… Unlike every first-year student on their first meeting with their…

We go Pop Champagne!!!

Dear Meme, I know I’ll be in trouble for doing this but ermmm… I cannot be bothered about that for now. Let me face the music later.  Writing this has made me emotional, so very emotional because, to get this out the way I want it to, my mind needs to travel as far back…

She was Family

Though He slay me, I will trust Him How do we; imperfect humans, question the ways of a perfect God? We all dream of heaven and its beauty and splendour Yet the sting of losing a loved one to heaven is sometimes more than we can bear It is said that death lays its icy hands…

IGNORE me

Ignore me  Insomnia lurks at my doorstep  Dancing agbadza to my erratic heartbeat  Making a mockery of my inability to sleep When you yearn to close your eyes for but a moment  Sleep eludes you like English from the mouth of an illiterate Ignore me  I know not where my poetic antics proceed  It is…

THE MAN I SEE HIM AS

To the one who’s been a father and a friend
To the one who sometimes takes on more than he can bear
To the one who has received grace to do the uncommon things of the earth

Dear David…

Celebrate people whiles they live… it’s sad how we value people more when they’re dead. For me, this person has a special place in my heart so I refuse to keep calm! Let me begin: ​Ha! But Dave Paa? You actually thought I was going to be quiet on this day? Apuuuuu! I was waiting…

The Voice has Broken Forth 

“To everyone who has lost someone to the icy hands of death before:

This is for you who has felt the pain of coming to terms with the fact that the people you love and cherish; that mum, dad, best friend, cousin, brother, teacher, boss, are gone, never to come back. This is for you who have proved to the entire world that it is okay to cry and be hurt because you lost someone you deeply cherished. And again, this is for you who have put yourself together and given yourself hope. Those people we cared about may be gone but it is up to us to brace the fact and move on whiles their memories live on…”

To “God’s Gift” …

I chanced upon this a couple of minutes ago and I just realised I never did post it. I guess I was engulfed in an ocean of emotions at the point that my brain refused to process things straight. Well, I lost my friend exactly 1 year and 93 days ago today and this is…

To A Special Somebody…

Dear Father, I may not be master words, but in my own small way, I wish to bring to bear my heartfelt thoughts of you. I must not wait until you become lifeless to recount my fond memories of you. You have served as a source of inspiration to me in several ways; someone I…

When the Ache won’t Stop…

I know you would not like me to say this ever but I would however because some way, somehow, someone has to hear this story for I believe there are some people out there who feel the same way I do. I never dared to let people know how I actually felt and still do…
