My Quote November 24, 2019

In your pursuit of whatever you want or desire, don't ever settle for anything less than you deserve no matter how desperate you are. Those things don't stick or stay with you even though you dedicate your whole life to them. And when they do, they always end up being thorns in your softest places. Don't ever settle.

I wonder what waits in the dark I want to know who lurks in the shadow When I turn When my breath stilled Right there at the corner of my eyes, a presence. Sometimes, I'd turn ever so slowly Maybe I'd catch a glimpse Sometimes I'd pause a few breath At other times in the deep darkness of the night I'd lie quietly with my eyes closed Hoping to catch the hum of another breath. In...

If I had A Time Machine August 8, 2019

If I had a time machine, what would I do with it? Where would I go? I would most definitely visit the year 2012 or maybe 2011 because that was where and when things started falling apart.

A World Where Women Fight For Women July 21, 2019
Can we ever get to a place where women fight for one another before judging, attacking or criticising first? "Do not judge or mock a pain you have never endured." I have always pondered on this quote and how we are all guilty of it. I wish I know the author so I can ask what he/she must have gone through or saw to write it. When something bad happens to someone, we are always quick...

I Believe November 21, 2014

I am waiting for a crack in the shell of the sky, announcing the birth of a new world; free from sorrow, pain and prejudice where man and beast walk side by side like when dawns were young. I believe in a world where children are children singing and dancing in the rain freeing the body of all limitations and not a fear to the mothers hearts I dream of a world where law is devoid...

I spent too long Pondering on what was lost That I forgot too long Things that are given The love of my family The company of wonderful friends Who more than sacrificed Time, love and care Giving, asking not Walking by my side To sight the light of a new dawn The ray of hope To live life again To right the wrongs To a new beginning

Stronger Than Ever October 2, 2014
I spiralled downward onto the debris that was my life broken and scarred to the marrow still I rise from their ashes stronger than ever Plagued with nameless dread drenched in sweat pounding heart and jittery limbs terrified terror clouding my days; darkening my path still I break free from their grips stronger than ever

Underneath this same shade of blue, I made houses of sand and sticks, boxes and weeds; stuffed doll strapped on my back with mother's head-tie. I played house with friends and siblings pots of cans soup of mushrooms and water leaves I watched ants appear and disappear into tiny holes. I skinned my knees and bruised my toes I played hide and seek in the open yard, rain or sunshine jumping ropes and climbing trees. I...
