Décès

The goosebumps were filled on the skin Hairs stood at the back of the neck In a moment, the rancid smell of liquefying skin blended with roasted hair and metals was choking It didn’t put on a show to care or recognize anyone It had nothing to do with being too good or excessively insidious. Dark smoke and fire filled the air The absence of oxygen took life speedier than the burns Time will stop and each memory will be…

Hey is that you?

“Is this the only shirt you have?” I’m reading that in Atonye’s voice. Gracious Lawd!!! Why today? Why me? “Lol. I know I’m putting on the same garments and shoes the last time I saw you. Trust me it’s happenstance. Infact I’ve not worn it since then until now and here you are once more. Chill enable me to clarify this. “You can accompany me home. I have more garments and footwear however you’ve chosen to simply observe me wearing…

23

It’s the last day of my birth month and I decided to post today just because I feel like. So I’ve lived two decades and trennium and I feel ancient already. I try so hard so see if I can go with the trend and flow with my friends within my age range but it’s not that easy. Sometimes I feel like a mom, other times a guidance counselor. On a more serious note, 23 is such a cool age…

My struggles that are too real being short.

I’ll be the last person to say I’m short. In my head I’m too tall that’s probably because most of my friends are tall and I’ve never dated someone less than 6ft so it automatically gave me the pass to be tall. But I’m unquestionably short. Sometimes I get tired of looking up to my friends so I can talk to them or getting on tiptoe just for a hug. The struggles are too real. My life sometimes is a…

Tell me your dreams

Okay I’m not reviewing Sidney Sheldon’s book with the same title. This isn’t Ashley, Toni or Alette being in one person. I don’t know how that Disociative Personality Disorder works or if it’s actually real, but sometimes I am convinced that I have four distinct personalities and I play it out unconsciously. -First of all, there’s the very serious Aniekan that would literally see that everything goes as planned. She’s an economist and financial planner, strong willed, always aiming to…

Tribute

Yesterday evening I went for Bible Study which turned out to be a wake keeping service for a 61 year old woman. I’ve never been to one so I decided to stay through the three hours it took. She died when she was serving in church (a sanctuary keeper). When it was time for the tribute, everyone had something great to say about her. She was so much loved and most people went on to celebrate how sure they were…

Being Underwater

Padding my little feet down the walkway Feeling like a model in my monokini I looked at my parents with their broad grin I knew my expected reaction was to be excitement My hair falling across my face and I had to brush it off a few times I felt the stares like the scorching sun I was probably too cute I had my moment to take it all in The golden rays from the sky The aesthetic palm trees…
