POETRY PERSONALITY OF THE MONTH

Hello people,

It's yet another Friday with our poetry personality of the month and today, he decides to bless women.

Enjoy this awesome piece from Hafrikan Prince titled:

WOMB OF THE WORLD

A woman is the womb of the world
The wonderfulness of creation is the creation of a woman
She is a warrior, Very soft and strong, Calm and brave, Simple and caring
She is a friend not a slave, a companion not a commoner, a home not a house.
Hmmmmmmm!!!!

Been a woman is not a mistake and is never a curse 
You are made a woman because, you are the strength life depends on
So be proud of yourself
Appreciate yourself
Love yourself and acknowledge yourself
Because to be a woman is not easy at all

Without a woman, a man is nothing but an empty sky
The existence of man is misery
Ask history to tell you the stories of great women
Very passionate and determined
And you will understand why you need not to give up but move on

O, tell me?
What challenges again are you afraid of that is bigger than being a woman
What challenges again are you afraid of that is assaulting than being a wife
What challenges again are you afraid of that is scarier than pregnancy
What challenges again are you afraid of that is tedious than raisng a child
What challenges again are you afraid of, you have conquered everything
Because you are a woman

The world is yours, style it, 
Never surrender
Don’t give up
Please don’t tear yourself up with fears
Turn your downs up
And damn the impossible notion that keeps inflicting you with pains

Stop fighting your imaginations and say no to self-destruction
Stop polluting your souls with sorrows
Life is simple and beautiful
When you think right and act right
Happiness is free
If you free your mind

Love is good if you grace your heart with true
Depression is destruction
Say no to it
So don’t let anything enslave your happiness
Break through
Is time to say no and move
Is time to kill the fears
You are a dreamer, dream
And achiever, achieve
That is why is you are made a woman.

#InTheLandOfImaginations: WHAT GOD TOOK FROM ME

Efe spun around in her room, as she looked at how beautiful she looked in her dress. She'd carefully chosen this orange circle dress just to look her best. Orange was Ebo's favourite colour and it will suit the occasion best she thought.

She paused... Something was missing... She stood still carefully scrutinizing her look, trying to figure out what was missing... She folded her arms across her chest and tapped her lips with her right index finger... "Ah haaa!" she finally let out.. She needed a necklace and she knew just which one to wear. She'd wear the one Ebo bought her on her last birthday.

She took the clothes off, took her towel and dashed into the bathroom. As she bathed she thought about Ebo, about her and about them.
They grew up together in the same neighborhood, went to the same schools even up to the University. Everyone, including her knew how a perfect match they both were for each other, but the problem was, Ebo didn't seem to see it. She'…

#EchoesOfInspiration: LOTTERY CALLED LIFE

I don't know how old you are but I know that more than half of your life has been used either for giving up, thinking about giving up, almost giving up and thinking you could never get there, you could never get to get stuff done or simply that life wasn't worth it at all

Quick reminder: you're not alone

Which one amongst us asked to be given birth to?

Reality check: none of us!

But we're here anyway, so what are we going to do? Sit down, just grow up and eventually die, or make the most out of this "unfortunate" situation called life?
I'd take the latter. You know why? Because life is like the lottery and  you have to be in it to win it as said in the movie "NAKED"

Many of us have given up on love and relationships. We don't want it anymore because someone hurt us so bad. So in order to avoid getting hurt again, we'd choose to remain single.
Do you know that means you've lost the game? That makes you the loser, that makes you a quit…

#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, …
