    Love on the road

    That morning was very cold. Rain fell the previous night and it kept me on my bed. The weather brought that sensation that makes you crave for more sleep even when it’s bright outside. My mother stormed my room and then expectedly slapped my butt. She was very fond of that. She usually tells me that my butt was too big for me. For the most part, she recounts how she had a flat ass-cheek at my age, and perhaps I had inherited mine from her mother, my grandmother. I couldn’t really fathom why she’d complain about it like it was a problem for anyone. Even if it was, it’d…

    Love yourself first

      “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha YEAH! you read that right. Love yourself first before you love somebody else. Loving yourself is very essential to be a better person. When you claim to love yourself, it means that you accept and respect who and what you are. True self-love is an unconditional feeling of love, and accepting yourself with all your strength and ignoring your flaws. Have you ever wondered if someone ask you about things you love and how long it will actually take you to mention yourself? Some things may be equally essential but nothing is…

    I want you to be happier

    Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower. -John Harrigan Happiness should be a daily goal for every one of us. Happiness shouldn’t just be a destination to reach in the future. Some of us have made up our mind to find happiness only when we achieve something either materials or just mere events such as; Buying that Benz that you are craving for, Living in your dream mansion, Travelling to Dubai for summer vacation and many others. We decide to lie to ourselves about a better tomorrow that ain’t certain and nobody knows really exists. This doesn’t mean one shouldn’t have wonderful dreams but it shouldn’t be…

    Lies No Truth, In Lies

      Lies No Truth In Lies. Heard of the tale, Of the doll that grew? A trek down google, Could put you in the know! There lies no truth In a lie at all; ‘cause a lie, is a lie, Is a lie: just as a lie. You could paint it, Or garnish it in a pastel’s Hue; or call it white, Innocent or constructive. You could bury the truth, In the sands or darker tombs. But let the wise-ing know- Buried things rear heads. Hide it in religious cloaks, Pass it by idea’s caravans, Swear it by your oath, But does that change a thing? There is no just…

    The rats and diamond

    A rat once swallowed a diamond and the owner of the diamond contracted a man to kill the rat. When the rat hunter arrived to kill the rat, there were more than a thousand rats bunched up, and one sitting by itself away from the pack. He killed the one sitting by itself and that was the exact one that had swallowed the diamond. The owner of the diamond was amazed and asked the hunter, “How did you know it was that rat that swallowed my diamond?” “Very easy,” the hunter smiled. “When idiots get rich they don’t mix with old friends.” This post is not all  about tales of…

    Legend

    The blacksmith’s boy went out with a rifle and a black dog running behind. Cobwebs snatched at his feet, rivers hindered him, thorn branches caught at his eyes to make him blind and the sky turned into an unlucky opal, but he didn’t mind. I can break branches, I can swim rivers, I can stare out any spider I meet, said he to his dog and his rifle. The blacksmith’s boy went over the paddocks with his old black hat on his head. Mountains jumped in his way, rocks rolled down on him, and the old crow cried, You’ll soon be dead. And the rain came down like mattocks. But…

    A night to remember

    An unsettling feeling began swelling inside me. It seems there was something wrong in the — but I couldn’t quite tell where or what it was. I felt as though I had entered a house with the gas stove left on; the atmosphere was dense and strange, though apparently invisible to my eyes. I just received an alert on my phone and it was debit. I’ve been in the hostel since morning after I returned back from the class. Suddenly, I realized what it was: I’ve just been defrauded. My heart started pounding at an increasingly rapid pace. I checked my watch, almost noon. Who could have done this? My…

    What’s Beautiful?

      What’s Beautiful? What’s beautiful is not the rose, Because the rose itself, is a result. What’s beautiful is not the engine. What’s beautiful, is the wonders of combustion. What’s beautiful is what you can do, To help someone create something that can Shine. What’s beautiful Is helping another soul to smile, Even if it makes you frown. What’s beautiful Is the Dromedary, Duelling with the Dune, to take Herb and spice to The other side. What’s beautiful Is not always seen. What’s beautiful, Is that inner finesse, that spurs our fire works! – Chika Kalu Oze

    Reasons why you’re unhappy

    Reasons why you’re unhappy. I sometimes met with some certain people who usually complain about how life isn’t as fulfilling as it used to be. They’re utterly unsatisfied with the way things are. Some certain people tend to fall into sadness as a result of things that goes in their lives. It is expected to experience this state of emotion sometimes as a result of response to adverse life events which include loss of loved ones, major life changes, pain, and disappointment. In most cases, the sad feelings resolve as you come to terms with the changes in your life but some certain people couldnt figure out what exaclty brought…
