I could feel my ear twitch and tingle
To a voice so smooth and soothing
My heart would leap to its feet
Dancing to the rhythm of the music it made
Awakening in me, the butterflies
That had been put to sleep for so long a time
My body unresponsive
And my mind very pensive
Lost in the desert of reasoning and logic
Flashes of lightening,
Shakes of heartquakes all b'cause
I'm missing too many heart beats

And my eyes open to a dream come true
Look! He is here
Who? The fairy tale guy, my Prince Charming!
He stands in valour with a heart of gold
A spirit so true and free of deceit
A soul so pure, beauty is complete
Eyes that shine forth admittance to
Weaknesses and faultless imperfections
And still screams of graceful strengths unimaginable

I admit, yes I dare to admit
His looks aren't anything to behold
A handsome beast of a man
Not a charming freak of a boy
I admit, yes I dare to admit
I fell in love with the spirit and soul
And I'm in love with a heart of gold
Beauty is but a bonus not a reason
Why you love, else it is a treason
My love, my noble one, my Prince Charming
Come with me, in a fairy tale of our own
And let's live it out together
Happily ever after.

#TheReminder: GO GET A COPY

Hey there,
I cannot remember the last time I shared a blog post. It has been a great while. I have been away and doing nothing really except reading so much, school and getting into facebook squabbles(lol). But it is all over now. Time to get back to things that really matter. Aye!

So here is how we are going to start. Here is how we are coming back. As God willed it, my maiden book is almost done and it is titled THE REMINDER. I had a good friend help with the editing and here is a review he wrote. I'd like for you to read it and get to know a little about this book. In the meantime, till i start writing again.

"The book you are about to pay for has a hundred and thirteen pages besides the forward and introduction. It contains a collection of poems, memoirs and narratives from several sources all crafted to tell an elaborate story that is supposed to be a reminder that will strike you to respond to the things we so easily ignore.
In this book, The Reminder, you will find you…

#EchoesOfInspiration: GOD IS A TAXI DRIVER

Last night I met God. He was just getting off the phone with someone.
"in an hour's time" He said roughly, yet calmly, then he ended the call. I bet it was a prayer he was answering. (Thinking about it, that one hour he said, could mean one year oo)

When I saw him. I just knew he was the one I'd go with. He laughed a lot and for some reasons, I was drawn to him.
So after boo negotiated the fare,  I took my good bye kiss which he always, carefully plants on my forehead in the same way you put an egg down.
"Keep the jacket" he said smiling as I opened the door lazily and sat at the back seat

After sitting, I took a moment to scan the seat, as my ears caught the sound of a favorite gospel song playing and I'd never seen a taxi so dirty like the one I sat in.
"Oh what happened here?" I asked calmly though with displeasure.
"Oh a woman I just dropped off" he replied shrugging his shoulders like he really wasn't bothered about it, no, …



I guess you had an amazing weekend. I'm wondering why nobody thanks God for Mondays. I mean, there's nothing like TGIM as there is TGIF... Lol

Everyone knows that a woman's first sex is painful, breaking her virginity is paainful! But do you know why it's painful?

When we buy a "tear rubber" product, what do we do to them in order to use it? As the name suggests, we tear the rubber!

Imagine you were the rubber being torn.. Ouch!
Breaking your virginity is painful because as a virgin, you're a "tear rubber" product. Your hymen that is attached to you happens to be the rubber that gets torn and voila! Sex is sweet afterwards.

Wondering what I'm driving at?? It's simple! START UPS! Start ups are a painful experience from the beginning. You'll be wondering why you're struggling to learn that new skill, why you're suffering to start up that business, why you're struggling to adapt to your new work or school schedule, …
