Why Did You Say ‘Yes’?

Did you say ‘Yes’ to me or to my persistence
The fact that I stayed true to the moments
Of toasting, wooing, and waiting for your response

Conflict Resolution (Whatsapp Convo)

I saw this tweet yesterday and had several thoughts run through my mind as I shared on my Whatsapp status: When not handled properly, these things become a point of tension in the home, but when we learn to accept the reality of others, they become things that make us laugh and laugh hard, and […]

Blending Our Lives

Adéọlá-mi, I think it will be amazing blending the uniqueness of our individual lives. It’s something I’ve always given a thought. And I wonder if we will find an intelligent way to live, if we will be stuck in the limitations of our upbringing, or be lost in the confusion of this present day. To […]

How Do You See Life?

Dear Adéọlá-mi, You see, I’m looking forward to our life together. I’m really curious. Sometimes, I just sit and imagine the moments, the different phases, the challenges, the victories, and all we will share together. Contrary to how I see people talk about these things, my expectations are quite interesting. I’m not trying to get […]

The Twins

THE TWINS….a rather touching story. I saw them, the twins, dangling uncontrollably to gravity, just under that thin sheet of pink cloth. I didn’t know why but the sight caught my attention. A second later they had been turned away, and a war began in my soul. Various thoughts arose as my brain began to […]

First Flight

34,000 miles above sea level and I’m looking around me, wondering why I am alone at this moment of my life. And no, it isn’t because of the two love birds seated in front of me, locking arms, gisting, and laughing above the engine noise. No, it isn’t because I am alone on this trip, […]

SHE WAITED

She waited Through the bouts of his confusion Through those moments of nothingness She waited, yes she did She waited for him It wasn’t the most pleasant moments for her Loneliness and aloneness Not that she didn’t need him there Not that she wasn’t troubled But her Love wouldn’t let go She wouldn’t turn a […]

Let This Love Last

In those days, as a young religious man, whenever I see a guy and a girl, brother or sister, especially on a day as this, together in one corner, on the road, at a junction, or just anywhere, talking, smiling, or making any such melancholic motions, my reaction has always been to see them as […]
