Everyday

Everyday is a little better; A little brighter; A little closer to change. Sometimes, I feel like I’m waiting for something exciting to happen Like the week before a huge party; Closing work on Friday; feeling like you’re done with every hard work you would ever do. But then Sunday night blasts right in; And you start to feel like you’re dreading something sinister; Like the Monday of due dates.

Short and Quick

The doctor said it was short and quick; that you felt no pain. He thought he was telling me comforting words, but they were like gravel being hurled at me.  ‘A quick bullet to the back of his head’, they said. ‘He couldn’t have anticipated it’  Bu they don’t know how much of a planner you loved to be. You hated uncertainty and always tried to predict every factor in

But I Don’t Rant 

My precious time!!!! I took out 30 minutes to write an article and then I tried to post it and it just… disappeared. Just like that. I almost looked for the article under my bed.  I have just one question for this article: Was my brain so bad that the first thing you thought of doing once you left there was to kill yourself???? While I’m still sorting through my real

Sabo Policewoman, But Why?!

When I started blogging, I said I was never going to rant because ranting boils my blood and never usually produces any results. But never say never, right?  This resolution of mine is one of the reasons why I stay on the path of fiction and normal everyday stories. I know that if I venture towards writing about the state of the Nigerian economy or politics or general public service

But I Rant Well…

I had the worst argument with my best friend today and I just want to rant. There’s no trick to this write-up; I won’t tell you at the end of the post that I am indeed my best friend, or that my shadow is the best friend I fought with, neither will I redefine what an argument is to make the article seem deep. It’s simple – I had an

I Don’t Remember What I Wrote…

I actually don’t.  I got back home late last night and had to work on some other things (and pray 😀 ) Anyway, I dozed off praying when I got nudged by the spirit of this website. It gently but firmly told me, ‘You have not written today’. I replied (in my mind), ‘But I don’t even have internet data to post what I write.’ And the spirit of the

Prompt:  Jan 30 Burning Down the House Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab? My home is on fire but it isn’t burning.
