Random Facts About Me & My Beliefs!

 

I have written some random facts about me in the past. But it’s an inexhaustible list. So here are some more facts to nibble on today.

I am of the school of thought that anything worth doing is worth doing well with a laugh and a smile. I try to approach life and people with that in mind.  When I take stock of my life, I realised a long time that the best thing I can be is kind. Thus, I’m proud of my commitment to kindness. And these days, I do kindness with my common sense unlike before. Continue reading

It Takes Two…!

 

Two are better than one

‘Cos two makes loneliness a stranger

Two can halve the troubles

‘Cos two makes the burden easier

two can walk better together

and neither can stand alone

for every pleasure doubles

and everywhere is home

Two can walk on together

through strife and pain

through laughter and bliss

our light will shine through the darkness  

our laughter will resonate every morning

Two can weather all weathers

through every day and every night.

To All Poetry Enthusiasts!

 

I don’t joke with people who have a taste for poetry. To all the poetry enthusiasts, I’d say, keep writing ‘cos the world will keep reading too.

I admire the fact that passionate feelings can be expressed through imaginative words in a creative aesthetic style and rhythm.

Unfortunately, Poetry is not accorded the recognition it deserves, especially in African literature. It’s not a genre of literature that is hugely appreciated no doubt, and this can be attributed to its distinctive language. However, with more poets (Africans) rising up, this conception might change in the near future.

So, today, let me honour the Masters of this distinctive art the world over, Poets, who craft words, mould them, weave them together, adding rhythmic beauty to these letters to create a superb gripping effect. 🙂

To all the poets who add special intensity and beauty to letters as they invoke emotions into their poetry –  SALUTE.

Kudos to you all.

It’s Your DAY.

The world celebrates you today! 🙂

In addition, we may not all write poetry in letters. But some of you do, with your gorgeous outlook, and with the extension of your hands of generosity, towards humanity.  🙂

Here’s a big shout out to all the great poets, dead and alive.  You all are the great minds that add beauty and colour to our world.

Cheers. 🙏😍

Happy World Poetry Day! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Peace and Love!

Myriads Of Thoughts!

 

As humans, there are times our thoughts travel far and wide. Our inner peace is besieged by life’s exigencies. No matter how hard we try to erase some memories, they keep coming back to us.

I’ve had moments when I’m in that solitary place and I keep wondering about life. Life happens and things get out of hand. Life happens and joy turns to sadness. Life happens and you feel betrayed by the person/people you trusted so much. Life happens and a once beautiful relationship crumbles. It’s such an unpredictable world. Continue reading

Recalling My Childhood!

 

Growing up, we spent more times outdoors as kids. I experienced an outdoor childhood unlike what the norm is today. Those moments we spent outside with other kids were one of the greatest memories of my childhood.

Vacation from school meant coming together with friends for some unforgettable moments outdoors. We indulged in all kinds of play and took long walks into the neighbourhood, helping the others run errands. Togetherness was the watchword. And there were no acrimonious tendencies at that time. We shared our meals if need be. We enjoyed the feel of the sun on our backs and the slap of the wind on our faces giving us a breather as we inhaled freshness into our lungs. The healing powers in playing outdoors with friends nurtured me. I grew to appreciate the other person. It boosted the humanness in me. Continue reading

A Bottle Of Wine & A Cup Of Tea!

 

A few weeks after I arrived Denmark
I found myself in a new society with an entirely new culture
Every waking day, I try to grasp a bit of the whole new environment
And just then, my new friend and housemate
A PhD researcher introduced me to her Danish supervisor
During dinner, she hosted at our student hostel
Her supervisor came with his lovely wife
And we all chatted while eating the assorted dishes
Prepared by my amiable friend. Continue reading
