Not Sorry, She’s Really Beautiful

Remember I said I was going to tell you about my new girlfriend; Joy. Being with Joy is like tasting honey for the first time, after having drank YoYo Bitters all your life! Joy keeps me up at night just like depression, but this time around, we’re both discovering music with great vibes. Joy can be shy and bold all at once. She’s shy when the clouds above me are

Sorry, But She’s Really Ugly

Douglas. I thought we were friends and you had faith in me.   _   She could pass by me when my eyes are closed and I’d still know her. She is that ugly. She is really ugly. I feel her ugliness. I smell it. I could never mistake it for anything else. She could never cover it up with makeup. Makeup makes it even worse; because it attracts people

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.

Joy Is Not

Joy is not the random highs that handover to horrible lows after its shift  Joy is not the flickering promises from the lips of someone who thinks he loves you  Love is not arrogant boldness that possesses you when you dole out cash  Joy is not the feeling you only feel when someone says ‘well done’  Joy is not the ‘on’ switch that comes on when they presses they right

Dance To The Noise In My Home

Three homes away there’s a noise; the type that death brings. Father just died , mother is going insane. While the aunties and uncles hang around like vultures, The children, like little chicks, cluster around in circles – confused and scared. A wail breaks out from the lungs of the mother; it’s the 142nd time today A gasp escapes from her daughter; it’s her 2nd birthday today.   Two homes

Foolish or Not?

Today, I woke up to multiple messages on my phone. I had woken up, and grabbed my phone to check the time when I saw all the whatsapp messages flood in.  Curious, and dismissing the Voice that urged me to pray and study my bible first, I opened Whatsapp to see my classmates arguing (as usual – I mean, they are lawyers to be. What better way is there to

Less Merry Days

In all the 365 days of the year, I’ll bet you that there will be some less merry days.  Days when you are not you and people are not people.  Days when your insecurities and fears are expanded far more than your confidence and pride.  Days when you’d rather just crawl under a rock and cohabit with crabs so that maybe you’ll learn how to have a thick skin: Days

Madly Pissed

Today, I had a funny experience. I sat in a bus in front of two elderly people; a man and a woman. They were both deeply engrossed in a conversation when I entered the bus and I could tell by the extra creases on their faces that they were really concerned about the subject matter.  The bus was relatively quiet as though everyone was politely listening to the conversation; which

The first misconception I had was when I was 16 years old. I had sex and got pregnant basically. It was wrong, scary, humiliating, revealing and a bunch of other adjectives. When I had to pause Ss3 for a compulsory maternity leave (granted by my expulsion from my school), my classmates would post on my Facebook wall: Hail Mary full of grace. The only Grace you are full of is

My Wife is the Coolest

I just want to take time and this space out to bare it all out about my wife. Today makes it our 4th year of being married, 7th year of being in a relationship, 8th year of being best friends and 10th year of being friends. Yes! I’m counting!  First, to allay your skepticism and answer the question I know everyone is asking: YES! We have misunderstandings! Note that I
