20 Things I Hate About You

I hate that you never let things go.
I hate that you always had to have the last say.
I hate that you were always serious every damn time.
I hate that you didn’t read or believe that reading matters.

POEM| The Quiet Type

I’m considered the quiet type
because I don’t say much
from the onset
and my soft voice betrays me

POEM| Chasing Fire

Talking to you
is like chasing fire
wondering how it’ll feel
under my feet

Life Update| May 2020

How are you? This is the most asked question in the world and more often than not, our answer is always a lie. My answer to every “how are you” question is a default “I’m good” because I know most people don’t expect otherwise.

You Will Not Get Everything You Want & That’s Okay

We want so many things.
Every day we wake up, there’s an addition to the list of the things we want and desire. Our wants always surpass our needs and we can’t help it because that’s just the way we are wired.

Can I Walk in Peace?

Since I came out of the compulsory fourteen days quarantine period for recent travellers, I’ve been going for walks around my neighbourhood instead of driving all the way to the Lekki/Ikoyi bridge. I still get my 5km in but I’ve been unable to take a walk alone in peace.

You Are Not Alone

You are not alone. I feel it too. The fear. The panic. The uncertainty. The inability to take your mind off the news update every day. The worry you no longer have control over. The wonder about when we will have normalcy again.

The World is Waiting

We’re in the middle of a global pandemic
people are dying every day
and hope seems so far away

POEM| The Right Time

There’s never a right time
It’s going to be scary
You will wonder if you’re sane
There will always be a reason to wait

Talk To Me

You’re close yet so far away
I can tell something is wrong
but you haven’t said anything
talk to me, tell me what’s on your mind
