#JusticeForUwa
Yesterday was terrible for me and I believe every human who read of this tragedy. It was my mentor's birthday, still, I was too shocked to call her or even make it for her online book launch😔 I couldn't have a straight conversation. People were wilding. I learned a lot of things yesterday. Chief of all was, you never truly know humans till matters like these or similar arise.
People asked stupid questions, "logical reasoning" they called it; why was she in church? What was she reading for? She nor get a house? Na lie eh, she probably went somewhere else and not a church? The police should get to the real reason behind this tragedy, they said.
If you are looking for answers to your "logical questions" you are inhumane and you are justifying rape and you know what that makes you right? Rape is rape, it doesn't matter how you dress, where you were, the kind of friends you have. It is still forceful penetration WITHOUT consent.

Let's Gist!

When I really do think about it, single hood really isn't my choice but I'm basking in the ambience of it, don't get me wrong, I want to love and be loved, everyone wants love but no one wants wrong love. I asked some ladies and here's what they had to say:
****
I thought I'd met the perfect guy, really artsy just like me, I didn't have to make it so obvious I was into him, he jumped on the same vibe. When we spent the first night together and I calmly told him I wouldn't not like to get intimate immediately, he didn't argue or complain, after that weekend, our relationship changed to sour egusi soup. He told me truth eventually. He had a girlfriend.
So yes, I'm single because I could get played. I'm guarding what is left of my sanity. ****
My ex broke up with me for the first time. His reason; "I want to draw closer to God" I swallowed it, didn't react but every time I remember that lame excuse, I'm in fits of la…

THE WEDDING CRASHER

Image
I never thought I would do this. This isn't even on my list of 20 crazy things to do before I'm 25 -Yes I've got a list- But hey! Life happens, here I am shopping for the perfect dress to crash a wedding.
You are shocked? Chill I'll give you the gist.

I met Kelvin at a friend's wedding reception. We were seated at the same table, this friend was a  distant acquaintance, I just had to attend so I wouldn't labelled bad belle. Unfortunately, my womanity suprised me, after I looked all peng! Cramps threatened to rip my dress apart. Whilst the couple was making an entrance into the hall, I could barely stand for few seconds, the cramps pulled me down to my seat ( the perks of being female🙄) 
He sat down, pulled his chair closer to mine.         "Hey you good? Jesus! His voice, I almost died, I caught myself.   "Yeah, I'm good, just a little feminine ish" I rolled my eyes. He chuckled "Oh I totally understand, you'll be fine. Water?
We hi…

LET'S PRAY by Sybil Saber

Image
Let's pray
Bow towards a holy land
Weep on the walls of a holy city
Let blood on a sacred ground
Pin a staff by a riverbank

Let's pray
I've found a spot in a crumbling fortress
I've made an altar on Mount Vulcan

Let's pray
Make it fervent, make it calm
Make it subtle, make it fire
Give me freedom, keep me bound
Give me chaos, give me salvation
Call me child then, make me the enemy
Tie me down with a banner of peace
Cuff me in chains and tell me "damnation"!
When I seek
Show me a path called mystery
When I ask
Give me a potsherd to ease my inquisition

Almighty, all-being
Divided amongst men
Each brings a portion and call it only
Each shows a path and call it true.
Each way is upright, the rest, the fate of Babylon
Each is just, all others are iniquity

Let's pray
That when I see, I'm forever lost
That when I'm lost, I'm forever free
That when I'm free, I'm forever found

RANDOM THOUGHTS: RELATIONSHIPS (Your Village People Or What?!)

Image
Scenario:
You, a pretty girl, intelligent, hardworking, you are regularly irregular. And you wonder, why am I still single? You are supposed to be with the LOYL at this stage of your life, but you are not. So, infinitely you have kissed a lot of frogs but your Prince charming has gone AWOL.
What to do??
You meet this guy. Good looking, successful, will fit into your tik-tok videos, most importantly you don't have to make the first move, (at last someone who knows your worth) it is what you need. You vow to not fall in love so soon, you want to take your time to see if he loves you, you act mature and self-conscious around him but deep down you want to rip his clothes off and you literally worship the ground he walks on. Your friends have told you they don't trust your new man, (what do they know, enemies of progress) you've heard the rumours, your man is a Casanova, still you don't believe, his exes tell you to be careful, not to fall prey, but you think they are just…

THE GHOST ON SIXTH STREET

Image
Everyone who lived on Sixth Street was scared of the abandoned house, rumour had it that the owners of the house placed it under a curse, the last family that lived in the house died mysteriously,  all found suspended from the ceiling fan in different rooms. Suicide!  I would boast to my friends that one day my dad would rent a house near the abandoned house and nothing would happen to us, I was trilled with the mere fact of the house being supposedly haunted. So when dad announced we were moving out of our comfortable 3 bedroom apartment, I was super excited I'd thought my dreams were finally coming true.

Our new house on sixth street in front of the abandoned house was different, there was no running water, it had only two rooms which were a little too small , one which I now had to share with my sister, the parlor was the size of my former bedroom. It was uncomfortable, but dad explained, that he did not have enough money, so we had to manage the new tiny house.

#HotPepperSoupSeries -TROUBLE MAGNET

I hated washing Papa's car, it was the most stressful and frustrating of all chores, I chose to wash the dishes over the car, but papa would never let me, the most frustrating part was that he would make me wash the car over and over, it was an upbeat Volkswagen, it wasn't special but my old man valued it over us, his children.

I washed the car, grumbling under my breath, papa stood outside, yelling at how ungrateful I was and how I'd missed a spot. He ordered me to wash the car for the next hour and went back into the house, I  thought he was bluffing. Immediately I heard the sound of his room door shut, I strolled to the mango and lay down on papa's ancient recliner.
 Wham! Wham! Two missiles landed on my face.
Papa shouted "stupid boy! I go inside for two seconds and you are the owner of the house?"
I fought to hold back the tears, he went inside, I wasn't a bastard to continue resting, I got back to washing the car.
