Once famine struck the village. All the crops failed. Rivers and lakes started to dry up. The people of the villages started moving to other villages to save their lives.
Dear freedom fighters
In fear we write
And in despair we come
It's been ages since you left
You departed with good memories
And here we are
Shamefully lagging behind
With nothing to boast of
Dear freedom fighters
We are still being colonized
Our minds have not been transformed
And in slavery we find ourselves
We lost the hope and confidence you instilled in us
We lost it all
The mineral, human and natural resources
Infact, all our assets
Dear freedom fighters
In disgust ...

What made me to start my own blog?
I started my own blog because I needed money. I needed something that will keep me busy and make something from it. Though, my main focus was to make money from my blogs since I got to know others were doing. I passed through lot of pains but the outcome will shock you.
There are so many choices to make in life. So many uncertainties to go along with it. We have the liberty to make decisions which can either make or break us. Sigh! It gets exhausting sometimes.
Growing up, we all have our dreams and aspirations and there is literally a plan on how to achieve all those things. Some dreams may be based on what others want instead of what we want but for a moment you have something that belongs to you... Something you can call yours.
But what if all you ever wan...

Just maybe I'm supposed to learn from them.
Love but never get loved back.
Heal wounds but my wounds never get healed.
Care but never get cared for.
Compromised to make them happy
Yet, never get a small favor from them.
Just maybe I'm supposed to learn from them.
I'm just a minter born of a hunter
And followed by no one on Twitter
Enduring that weather in winter
And staying as a spinster
Trying to get to the top of the ladder.

Even if conventional history ignores Olabisi Ajala, the phrase “Ajala the traveller”, a nickname in Southwest Nigeria for the footloose and the adventurous, means he would never be forgotten.

She was more lovely than anyone I've ever seen. In fact, my connection with her soon taught me that love is entirely up to you. She was a wonderful friend until I made a snarky remark under one of her post on social media. It was just like one of our regular chats, where the desires of the heart are calmed for a pleasant exchange. Our conversations made it seem as if we'd known each other for years, despite the fact that I was thousands of miles away. Our friendship had its ups and downs...
I wake up with this memory,
Full of confused misery
About what life actually is
Life itself is a mystery
That causes a trauma to understand its drama.
The frustrations of life during the journey to our destinations hit us with a lot of imaginations
Sometimes we are forced to make certain decisions which leads us to our destructions due to our assumptions
Our flippancy conceals a deep insecurity
In the illumination of certainty
Our ability to react to humility makes our recogniti...
Golden dreams and great heartaches churn in the depth of soul of this river called love
When great mountains stand in its path, it cuts deep, gushes through the rock to keep flowing
Love is endless 😍😍
It will be cantanker when I pretend to have oversight on my love for you.
My love for you is so unique that there is no plagiarism in my plan to love you.
When I set my eyes on natural beauty, a certain desire to serve your creator erupts in me like a volcano 🌋
In the US city of Philadelphia in 2018, one in 22 adults was on probation or parole. Among them was LaTonya Myers, who was facing almost a decade of supervision after a string of minor crimes. But a reforming district attorney, who started work the same year, has been reshaping the system - and LaTonya herself has become an activist for change.

I don't want to behave like a coward
One hiding behind the cupboard
And not thinking about the way forward.
On how to get off the springboard
I am beginning to behave like a drunkard
Who trolls in the backyard
To take in something arkward
Just to forget his worries
Little did he know of the afterward
That he will be thrown back to the motherboard where he faces the billboard of reality
The exogenous variable has triggered itself for us to part
I cannot deny the fact...
Have you ever found yourself gravely questioning the dead about what exactly is beyond the grave? If the transition is one of absolute peace, milk and honey, dear one, would you teleport in a hurry?
Well, you definitely have to hear this, the dead have their own thoughts too -- uncertainties and regrets.
"Thoughts in my skull aren't worth a penny here
Once a glamour, now a simpleton --
They can't even define my gender..."
A shadow in the background assures its victims of no harm yet they cannot help but feel its peering eyes sending cold chills down their spines. There seem to be no space whatsoever to hide from this formless being for it gives no breathing space. Who is this stalker: your doubt, your fear, your guardian angel, your demon or just a mere FoP?
I watch you spec the park
With your sparkling inner glow.
I watch your footprints; akin to the blueprints of Noah’s Ark
What beauty beyond comprehension
The words of a master so divine
Perfect are the works of thy hands
There is no folly in his ways
He beams with excellent light
His paths were unsearchable, yet revealed
His thoughts unfathomable
The human mind cannot bear
Oh, what excellence!
The artistic design of the universe
The work of a true genius
Oh, what marvel!
The depth of His deeds
Seemingly senseless, yet purely wise
How art thou a Person
Life rests in yo...
GOD MADE MAN
God created man because of His love for great stories
Says the old saint whose journey draws near to an end
"Eden is in the past!", he says
Sin initiated the crisis that swallows this universe
Man lost his standing with His Maker
The holy God descends to rescue
A mission climaxed on the cross
The sacrifice that redeemed creation
Brining unity and intimacy
God and man dine once again
Yet this universe is passing away
With it's horrors and sufferings
Time has marked our existence and inasmuch as we would love to live till our bones become as dry as dust, it is only a matter of time before the inevitable death knocks on doorbells -- wanting to have a stroll with us or with the people we love. It is out of this reality of truth that this literary piece was born -- to offer reality checks and inspire a conscious lifestyle. Every second and day we live is an opportunity to create a sense of immortality for our mortal beings soon to de...

Tomorrow? Tomorrow? Tomorrow??
It will be too late my dearies,
To do all the good that you can do!!
So reach out to those who need you,
And lend them a helping hand!
How about not procrastinating?
How about giving everyone equ...
Death has no hands yet it snatches so viciously.
Taking who and what matters, leaving spaces that may not be filled and even if filled , would still not be completely whole
We think of all this and understand how true the saying "what death holds, life cannot take" because all death took away cannot be brought back. Even if it comes back, it's just in our memories.
Yet we pray for those we've lost and still hope for mercy for them and strength for us.

You are amazing
Your generosity is so conspicuous
And your melodious voice causes calmness in cacophonous situations.
I am emotionally fixated on you
And psychologically inclined that it will take a great deal of effo...
Love is the most uttered word in the dictionary, sometimes intended to mean like or admire.
This four lettered word is abused in diverse ways to mean different things to different people who confuse it with their current state of emotion. It is used to keep some people in deception, ever heard of the phrase '' I did it because I loved her'', I didn't tell you because I loved you''? Love does not deceive. It compromises..

Why does my heart linger to walk in your ways?
Where is my soul when he wants nothing to do with me?
My body, why would you alter your look?
Am I not enough?
Made out of unparalleled imagination
Created without a backup
Standing unabased in rank
Adorned with the mystery of variety
I am a masterpiece!
Made out of love undefined
Shown off in the multitudes
An individual with incomparable prints
Shining bright in the midst of many lights
I am inimitable!
Constant fights engulfed us daily,
Your presence irritated me.
I never wanted you close to me,
Yet we were inseparable.
Did you feel same?
Covalent bonds bonded us,
Yet we hated each other.
You out of sight made me restive.
Myopic were my inner eyes,
To your dark-green lights.
Lost opportunities never resurfaced,
Waited till dusk dawned the sky.
Dilemma drew my shadow on walls.
Symbiosis was our daily bread,
But that heart never awakened.
The Husband of Her Dreams
A husband is his wife's greatest encouragement, a place of shelter and safety.
The screaming voices of self-doubt may get to her; the rivalry of her equals may cause her to panic; the venomous-tongued may bruise her heels; the brutal hands of malice may catch up with her; and the rage of the rising storms may scare the life out of her, but he shall be her confidence; her hiding place; and comfort.
His voice shall silence her doubts; his compliments shall...
I've gathered the leaves of the season
Count them one by one and find beautiful reason
The colours fade from traveling horizon
The flesh withered from the sun crisp obsession
The lines drew some maps it went through
The fine linen shows the joyful hue
It may have fade it's green and freshness
Yet luscious gold it bust the earth
Ahhhhh... Life is a leaf... I breath with great sight.
Hello again this poem is dedicated to my family, and those who are more like family Eddy,...
Silent in the midst is an undreamed life
a dread life in the sense of the opulent
a rugged hands that coax the ground for food
amidst the bedlam, a troubled mind is frayed of life
what is life if not for tomorrow's sake
yet the serf runs from tomorrow wishing for death
and in glamour parade, the lord's awaits the morrow
let the world watch as her sons scream in misery
as their blood waters the ground for others to reap
it's a misery to live in a world of misery
if such is ...
He said, "I Love You".
Gazing through the horizon
My restless heart kept racing
Chasing the wind it seemed
For the love I yearned for
Then my eyes were settled
All these endless quests were finally over
She looked like the finest pearls in the Caribbean
Adorned with the beauty of the sun
Her eyes as the brightness of day
I've found her, mother!
Heaven has smiled on me
Rest, I exhaled gracefully
Then came the words
Kept until the arrival of the one who stole my heart...
Walking alone on the rough roads
Silence being my companion
Carrying on the herald's message
Surrounded by clouds of doubts
I pressed on through the winds of anxiety.
A little here, a little there they said
Seeing my wandering weary feet
Oh how I gasped my frustrations
At the sight of willing ears
My path was lost, wasn't it?
Desperate and broken, my heart sunk
I don't know where I'm going!
Covered in shame and pain
I recounted the rejections
Dearest father, to start I do not know how, and to finish is a mystery
The orient to me seems like a prolong dream
When the times I dreamt of you is long forgotten.
Let me have my moment of epiphany please!
For siege I have lay for my own destruction.
Should I tell you about the sweven of my heart, or
Should I shout to the mountain and tell the wind about my distressed soul?
The solitude of the desert gives me conciliation about my own solitude.
Day in, day out, I keep pursuing a path sa...
On The road
There is no rich , no poor
On the road
There is no black, no white
On the road
People come, people go
On the road
Life is more than just a walk
On the road
Good manners, and respect
For you and me, they are approved
On The road.

You gave more than birth
All things being necessary
You gave more than love
When i thought that was all that matters
You gave more than joy
when i needed more than that
You gave more than care
When they said it was enough
You gave more than comfort
When my life was set ablaze
You gave more than friendship
When lot was for you to turn away
You gave it all, you gave yourself.
This poem is dedicated to my honourable roommate Solomon Nti Baabu AKA *Solbab*. ...
A game they said was meant for fools,
and those crazy enough to choose.
A game they said would wreck and tear apart the hearts who'd dare to refuse
its all but certain somber taste that followed the sweetest times in haste.
I too have played that game of fools
and I did so a little longer than what I'd choose
I took a turn with my luck at the game
hoping I'd be first to leave when it came
The tearing of eyes, the laments of souls,
I had hoped to evade all this till the...
When you grow weary
Carrying the burden we share
There beside you, I will be
When the world cut you off
Because of the love we have
There beside you, I will be
When you feel regrets for beginning such a dangerous
There beside you, I will be
When you feel as though you cannot continue anymore
There beside you, I will be
When you raise your hand to surround,
I will be your strength to move on
When you feel frustrated about what we are
There beside you, I will be
And even i...
You did love to live in the country
the little lovely greenly fresh place
alive is everything you seek to touch
from the singing bird hovering waters
the stretched field of meadow green
a small house of the thatched roof of course
come live with me in my little cottage
at the fireplace of rocky clay
feel the warmth all around your soul
you at home in my little cottage
cheers to the country sky
smiles from the sun and moon all around
to watch the rest of the world go by with haste
A wife is her husband's biggest fan, his place of rest and refreshing. The winds of adversity may beat him down; the waves of strife may drown him; the tongue of men may wear him out; the icy hands of his ego may firmly grip his heart... Nevertheless, his soul is at peace. For he has a helper in his wife; a woman of encouragement she is; a seeker and the unveiler of his strength; a complement to his weakness.
His heart shall rejoice in his wife, for she is a crown of glory; a symbol of str...
This much I've seen from true art
like when flowers bub up pretty or
when the tired sun weds the sea
this almost is so amazing to behold
just how much the ever subtle chaos
that these sights do unfold
the flowers fight to see the sun
and a whiz or two of breeze
whiles the sun wrestles the darkness
from the night it precedes
it doesn't matter what does matter
the irony pervase all the same
to whip or revel in disaster
those choices will challenge all who bear its a name.
There was a wild outburst of discontent - Oh! Oh! followed by Aww! Aww! Then I overheard him shout how could this happen all of a sudden. For a second, I stood in stunned silence, too shocked by Tom’s outburst to think of a response. He is usually calm so I was surprised by his sudden outburst. What really has come over him? ‘I wondered.
It was that about 53% of the population in the USA got sick and that victims could die within hours of first symptoms – horrific symptoms, not just ac...
Give me a paper
And let me hand it over to the writer
To elaborate how he thought you would be better
But you have proved to be bitter
Filling our eyes with pepper
Even the wind has stopped to listen
And the fish staring at you
You have defiled the natural order
Shuttering many dreams
And sending them to the grave yard
We wake up perplexed
Not knowing your next unpredictable move
For you are like human wants
Insatiable they are
You increase your utility to the detrime...
My mind is beginning to tickle
I don't know whether to toggle between what I thought or what I face now
I used Goggle to get reasons
But I was left in the hazel of boggle
So as words tickled my mind
I began to wonder
Who is ready to mingle with this munter born by a hunter
I am just a hinter and a minter trying to ginger myself to the top of the ladder.
I thought of going slower
I will surely get there sooner or later
I didn't dream that much bigger
As these thought...
We all think that there is nothing difficult for God to do. Yeah, very true after these 3 things that was rather difficult for God to do and why they were difficult for Him, you will know after reading. Hmm...the first thing difficult for God was creating Lucifer. Difficult cuz He is Omniscience: all knowing, and He knew Lucifer will be corrupted and breed evil to His creation. So it was difficult for Him to decide this.
Second difficult thing was creation of man after His image, knowing that m...
It is sad how we abuse "right time" in our daily activities.
People hide behind "right time" to neglect responsibility for their inactions.
When you ask, when will you marry, when will you get a job or when will come out of the addiction and become responsible?, you will always hear a chorus answer, "at the right time."
But the question "when is the right time?" thunders a huge silence.
There is a right time for everything, but
1. We must know tha...
We should be appreciative of the times people spend with us and the things they do for us because:
1. they are actually spending their lives with us
60seconds make a minute
60minutes make an hour
24 hours make a day
7days make a week
4weeks make a month
12months make a year
Years make decades and decades make centuries and generations. So the more time people spend with you, the part of their lives they are actually spending with you.
2. they would have given up a lot to b...
Marvel not at the deceit of time
for great men watched to withered away
and the stories of time never forgotten
quiet! quiet i say and listen
Oh! great men
great cities of old
never will your end the era be
from the vast northern wind
carrying echoes from the past
whisper your truth to my hear
and there, there!
close to my heart i heard
the voices of those
many close afar
so i harken to them all
for tomorrow's sake
so still i stood beside my window
enclosed within the corn...
