As I write this post I laugh at myself. It is really so funny. I have created more than 80 posts on this website!

This space I created for rants, batter and all things chaos, has evolved into a creative platform. A space where writers can come to as a resource and encouragement, my personal online portfolio, the origin of a wonderful community.

I am writing this post with a wide grin and tired baggy eyes. Those eyes house so much joy and love for you.

That grin is for you reading this, thank you for always coming back.

This smile and laughter is to tell you to keep going, keep moving. That you’re definitely going to get better, you are already getting better. And this process; this process is necessary so that you can have a story. Like me.

Do not skip the process. Learn from it.

Here is a list of my first ten posts on this space. Unedited, raw and unfiltered.

So you can see that I came from dust too. This gold has been formed from really high pressure and fire. Please, revisit your favorite and leave a comment on any you can relate to.

Once again, thank you for always coming back.

4. A tad bit of the heart♥

Date: September 12, 2017 Lifestyle|

Hello, so yeah, today’s only just going to be about life and preferences. No poetic words and literary terms (at least I’ll try to sound less inky and vocal enough) So, I’ve grown to find out the little obnoxious things that prick teens, my age group…

Date: March 24, 2018 LifestyleThe African Writer|

So I woke up this morning, with nothing to be said. I didn’t have a meal before my lazy rest. I stomped to the living room. With a mouth hanging to be feed. Out of my eyes poured flames, seeking for a raid. I turned to my left as I had a Squeak

9. Is Austerity Really Cruel?Date: April 13, 2018 CultureLifestyle|

Most times we always try and try to fix everyone’s broken pieces, whilst carrying a bunch of unpredictable turmoils behind our smiles. We go through the hard labor of the society. The failures, sadness, mischiefs and commotion but we end up cooing about the success, happiness, solemn and well planned out life of those we look on to.
