I am a man, a distressed man. I used to be funny, effervescent, a very happy man and I still want to be. I used to be a writer, a blogger and an avid reader. My muse fell between cracks and recent happenings beclouded my sense of humour. Right now, I can’t fix in my … Continue reading Ramblings of a Jaded Man
A respected sage’s observation mirrored my subconscious thoughts with his saying that law of love always supercedes law of personal liberty. This recountal from experience started out as an adventurous telling but ended on the irony… For a year more than half a decade, I wondered what my first love would seem like – special, … Continue reading Dear Chemistry
I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud but I’m too real to let judgment keep my mouth bound to silence. It has to be told, I’m not the only one who has placed myself in the lion’s den with the intention of being “just friends” but allowing the communication signals to be misrepresented and … Continue reading To My Secret Admirer
Dear God, We’re tired of praying prayers that have no faith. You know us better than we know ourselves so why do we constantly try to play on Your intelligence? We know that we don’t spend much time with You throughout the day because the duties of life always seem to get in the way. … Continue reading Letter to God
Since Ibadan wasn’t my final destination, I had to move on. I chattered a bike to “Express junction” where I boarded another bus going to Ake, my final destination. I got lucky this time as the vehicle was almost a new one aside the torn seats and a tipsy driver. I said my little prayer, … Continue reading Angel in a Rickety Bus (2)
One of the funniest ironies I’ve experienced in this part of the world where I live is how synonymous sitting alone in a public transport could be to staying in an isolated cell in a state penitentiary. Albeit, sometimes, it could be over-turned in a jiffy by getting a little acquainted with the stranger sitting … Continue reading Angel in a Rickety Bus
Dear Mark, It took more than pain, courage or determination, but frustrations at everyday happenings for me to eventually swallow my pride and sacrifice my souciant time to pen this few lines. Like I always feel, we are both heroes and achievers in our chosen fields. Yet, I couldn’t but appreciate your effort in turning … Continue reading Letter to Zuckerberg
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen we had a heart-to-heart chat.
I know you’ve been through a rough year and there have been many changes.
Like the ending of your four year long relationship, graduating from school (though long overdue),
I like to appear like I’ve got it all together. And most people have no problem allowing me the satisfaction of this fallacy. Always someone singing my praises, commending my strength, admiring my poise and applauding my successes. That’s because these bystanders are surveying my life from a distance. Although they know me from a … Continue reading To My Ex……Whoever You Are
Going down memory lane, when we used to be kids, running around the street or probably in our kindergarten, there goes a popular poem….”My Mother………Who sat and watched, my infant head, when sleeping on my cradle bed and tears of sweet affection shed……………” We didn’t quite understand the meaning of each word in the poem … Continue reading The Greatest Woman Ever
I have not said often how much I love you. I have not praised you for your achievements. I have not congratulated on your many successes. I have not taken you out for dinner. I have not appreciated you the way you were meant to. I have not bought you flowers like I’m supposed to. … Continue reading To My Dearest
