Judas

Dictatorship with the garment of democracy Footsteps on the way to freedom accompanied by chains and headed by insatiable politicians  Religion crazed nation, atrocities in the name of the Holy One Barter with humans, blood as the new currency Death bills in fulfillment of elections treachery The struggle of financial freedom where the investor is at the mercy of the lender Protests emerge subtly as sponsored campaigns  We are Judas with shreds of independence left that may take us back…

An Excerpt From My Journal

I kept on reminding him where I was going to stop, he started arguing if I know Lagos or his job more than him. I said ‘okay o’and kept observing before I’ll reach Ogun State. At a…

Bucket List: 25 Things to do Before You Turn 25

Thinking back to my childhood and daydreams about my 21st birthday, I was kind of convinced I would be living up my dreams in my career, working in the World Bank even as an intern for a start. I even fancied myself as a world traveler, backpacking across Europe and spending my days sipping wine with the world’s most fascinating people, meeting world’s best sellers and having my contributions on their paperbacks.  Ok my dreams didn’t turn out as I…

I Love You

Everyone yearns for that feeling love, once in a while and we all need that person we can relate to, a shoulder to cry on just like a vulnerable child. I want you to mutter in my ear that everything would be alright. I want to love for a day and if it can take me throughout a life time I’ll be more pleased.  I’ve almost thrown away everything I’ve held so dear but it becomes dark when I miss…
