Things I thought were worth writing in my 20’s


Make-Believe

My 12 Nuggets at 24

In my 23+ years, I have learnt a few things which I hope will  always  stick. 12 nuggets because that is half of my current age. I figure that I don’t have to be a 100% (24), if I am living in anything greater than 50% of who I want to be, then I am […]

Random Thoughts Of An AFRICAN Child

I weep for my beloved country. For my own inadequacy, my ignorance. I weep because I’m flawed. We all are, yet we judge those who came before us, who-flawed as they were -didn’t let their flaws be a hindrance. They gave our land all they had. So I weep because we judge too harshly. Never taking […]

Become

Give yourself room to grow. Live. Make mistakes and learn from them.                             Do BOLD things for God! Make mistakes there too.                                         […]

For Charity

I wrote this poem for a friend of mine who was going through disappointment. I have subsequently found that it has been a pillar of strength for me when I go through stuff I don’t understand or disappointments. I hope it will do for you what it has done for me….. Silence. All that remains […]

BUHLE

Beauty that one should see in themselves is now left to the admiration of those who see nothing but a piece of ‘ass’ in her. Yet if they stopped objectifying her to see her for who she really is, then they would have to look with eyes far greater than those appearing on their faces. […]

I AM BECOMING.

I EXIST, I AM, I AM HERE, I AM BECOMING, I make my own life and no one else makes it for me. I must face my own shortcomings, mistakes, transgressions. No one can suffer my non-being as I do, but tomorrow is another day, and I must decide to leave my bed and live again. And […]

Lessons

I’ve learnt to praise you for who you are.                                                                                   To love you in all […]

                                        I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things…                                                     I […]

Tori Kelly- Dear No one

This song means so much to me. Too often as ladies we let things pressure us. Be it our parents, society, friends or even ourselves. The issue with this is that God calls us to wait for HIS timing. I’m pretty sure that from those mentioned above, God is the most reliable. So imagine my […]

She is YOU

  She wears her black with pride, Turns her head after every stride. She is beauty. She wears her scars as jewels. Stretch-marks, her point of showing off. She laughs with ease. She knows who she is and whose she is, Fear is terrified of her, She is power. She swings her hips from side […]
