First poem for the month is titled; SHE IS MY WOMAN, Not YET

I saw her colorful future
A glorious light of heavenly bliss
She is a daughter of earth
Beauty is not beauty
Beauty is the one brewed from the pot of Asha
Ohemaa, my African empress fully clad with splendor
She makes me feel powerful and powerless

Words come quick
Talk is cheap
Life is short
But she is hot
History is alive in her

My mind harbors a secret archive of her beauty
It’s the mirror that reflects me
I see my future in her
God created her with me in mind

You see, it’s not magic that binds us
Its pure love and passion
I believe in miracles
She is miracle

So if love had poetic lines and vibes
I will be that poet that scribbles them
That poet that expresses my fondness for an African empress
I call her Ohemaa
Her beauty hidden from men
But to the glaring view of my naked eyes
I have got a woman
I hope she finds me

#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…

WHY BREAKING YOUR VIRGINITY IS PAINFUL

Bonsoir!

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, …

#MemoirsOfATraveler: SAVED BY TAKORADI

This is me standing in a bus traveling from Accra to Kakum. After standing for almost 3 hours, I start asking myself, can I really stand through the return journey after having all the fun?? Of course not! So I decided to go back to what should have been a planned and well organized trip to Takoradi, to spend the rest of the weekend and return in grand style. (ie: sitting in my own seat, listening to good music, reading and eating.) Unfortunately, I slept through most of the journey and if my head could fall off, it would have fallen off and rolled everywhere inside the bus. Because I did a great deal of dozing. LOL

My stay in, is it the oil city they call it? Was brief. As brief as an orgasm. And like an orgasm, it was exciting! Though I didn't visit any popular landmark. I went to the beach, the harbor view gardens and the Atlantic Hotel.
The journey from Cape Coast to Takoradi was as dark as the battle of Winterfell. There are no street lights and we have past a…
