CHOOSE JOY!

I had just gained admission into school at the time. I was still a teenager, trying to figure out life on my own. I was sick often, I did not like my course of study, I was different in a lot of ways and many people did not like me. All of these, coupled with the fact that my family at the time was financially broke. My parents are civil servants and the government did not pay them for an…

JUDGE, JURY, AND THE ACCUSED

 “Seddie! your closet is scattered again?”  I heard Mimi reprimand her brother as she dug through the pile of clothing, searching for his cardigan.   “You will kneel down when you return from school”.   She sighed with a tinge of exasperation and a knowing that the cardigan must be dug out otherwise mum won’t let her be.  Judgment for the erring crew member came swiftly and firmly as pronounced by Chief Judge Mimi, the magistrate in charge of my home court.…

And then the song began… Hilarious and out of tune, however, the wordings communicated the intent, and I had a good laugh. “mummy, mummy, always giving us the best of meals, breakfast, lunch….. mummy, mummy oo… always the best…..” Daddy took the lead of the newly ensembled choir while the rest of…

OMG conversations with my kids

Mummy, won’t you go and pick your husband from the airport? Didi, my 9years old asked with a smile as she struggled to sit her butt comfortably on my bed. “I will, but I am hungry” I replied with my eyes fixed on my phone trying to send out a message. “Are you choosing food over your husband?” she continued mischievously.

ON INHERITING ENEMIES…

Circa 2015, I quit my job and was just content with not knowing what next and just taking it a day at a time. The job was so toxic I felt like I had just been released from prison and was basking in my newfound freedom. While what was ahead was quite uncertain and I had no clue what I wanted to do next. At that time, I was content and grateful to just be alive. You see, you never…

MINDING YOUR BUSINESS

There are some nouns that come  when you hear the words “mind your business”- intruder, pokenose, busybody, meddler, marplot. We have had a lot of memes that arose from minding your business like “Good morning, don’t forget to drink and mind your business’ or “when you are on your own lane, there is no traffic”. Well, if you live in a busy city, you know that this may only be true on an early Sunday morning or in a lockdown.…

Born A Female – Diary Entry

In my African Home You work your spinal cord to its untimely death. May its gentle soul Rest In Peace. You walk your feet till its ends fray.

You bear the pains with a gentle strength for failure to keep to this law makes you…

A Letter to God – About the year 2020

Dear Father, It’s been a millennium since I last wrote to you. I know all has been good because you live in my inside and are fully aware of my lines of thoughts even before they spill into words — I’d still spill them all the same.😋 So, the year past had been a rollercoaster of emotions for me and other humans on earth. We went from high spirits heralding the decade to crushed dreams, uncertainties, and fear, even to heaviness of…
