POEM| Ifs

Sometimes I wonder

if I’m a burden

if I’m fulfilling a purpose

if I’m barely existing not living

if I shouldn’t have quit that job

or turned down that offer

if I shouldn’t have used those words

Hi everyone, hope you had a creative week. As promised, I’m back with the second edition of short poems about love. There are five poems in this post, have a look and let me know which one you like/resonates with you most.

POEM| Beautiful

the adjective,

and too often

My 2018 Reading List

I read 31 books in 2018(not all books pictured), 7 books more than I did in 2017 but 4 books less than my target of 35 books. I love reading. It’s a form of escape. It’s a way to acquire vast knowledge and information. It’s also a way to grow and be a better version of yourself.

SHORT STORY| Not Again

A loud bang and glass shattered all around me. “Not again” was the first thought that came to my head. I was in shock but only for a millisecond this time. I grabbed my bag from the floor, held on tight to my phone, turned my back towards them and told my brother to drive.

SHORT STORY| No Words

Our hands brushed against each other’s and I felt a startling vibration. I wasn’t sure he felt it too so I kept on walking but my heart was racing like I had been running for a minute.

A Strange World

we live in a strange world
don’t we?

we can like something someone loathes
and also despise something someone adores

we dream about something other people will never wish for
and also reject what other people hope for

Travel|10 Fun Or Not Facts About Accra, Ghana

I travelled to Ghana during the first week of the year for a wedding. It wasn’t my first time in Ghana as I had visited twice before. The first time I ever went to Ghana, I was in secondary school.

POEM| Damn You Insecurities

I see my reflection in the mirror 
and tears trickle down my face 

Am I pretty
I’m not so sure

Am I confident
I’m not so sure
