You Are Bae

I have always loved to kiss my son’s head ever since he was born.

I would stay there and just breathe; inhaling his natural baby scent mixed with man-made products.

I Owe Her 

I am overwhelmed to be writing this piece; my fingers are tingling and my heart has been racing ever since Tuesday; two days ago.  I am constantly tired and I can feel my body being dragged behind strength (I don’t even know what that means! But I’ve been saying weird exciting things since Tuesday). Nevertheless, I am super duper excited and I have never been this eager to live life

Sieve Mouths!

I am shocked by these kids in my secondary school and the words that trickle down their lips. It’s like their lips are sieves with no restraint and the words are liquid that just freely flush through the holes of their sievey mouths.  We have only spent 10 days in Jss1 and I know something about almost everyone’s family.  On the second day; orientation day, I met a small boy

They only sell face caps that do one way’ ‘Huh?’ ‘How do you protect your two faces from the sun?’ She smiles.   On Friendship In my interview with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, I enjoyed the genial atmosphere the

‘Hello everybody, my name is Adora and I’m an alcoholic’ ‘Hi Adora!’ ‘Okay, the first time I took alcohol, it was dry gin in my mother’s hot room when I was 13. I was in Jss3 then and it was during the junior WAEC school extension. I had listened to the boarding students talk about how they got ‘high’ the previous night. One of them had even asked me if

Dear Jedediah

Prompt: Feb 9 Childhood Revisited Sure, you turned out pretty good, but is there anything you wish had been different about your childhood? If you have kids, is there anything you wish were different for them? Dear  Jedediah, I’m so nervous writing this letter as you’re the very reason why I started blogging; to leave you trails of evidence of my literary development (so we don’t have to argue about

Prompt: Feb 6 Choose your adventure Write a story or post with an open ending, and let your readers invent the conclusion. I am writing a story with an open ending but I do not even know where it starts. It’s sort of how life is. We can’t say, ‘Oh, here’s the beginning of this story’ neither can we say, ‘Oh, here’s the end’. But we know that everything has
