I’m sure that if I asked you to describe the year 2020, a few negative adjectives would pop in. It was turbulent, challenging, tempestuous, damn right difficult, tough, and filled with hurts. We’ve had/seen losses either from the corona virus or from other things. Worst part is that it all happened just at once… so overwhelming!Continue reading “The Year that Made Us”
I’ve loved seeing plants around for as long as I can remember. I have deep appreciation for nature. Just seeing a green leaf is a sign of life… so here’s the story behind my new obsession with plants.Continue reading “The story behind my love for plants”
I never want you to feel this way,
You know, like you’re deep in a pit and no one even knows you’re there,
Like the grave is a resting place and life is for the restless,
Like you’re speaking but no one is listening,
Like you’re dying and no one is seeing.
I see you.
I hear you.
And it sucks that you feel this way.
I wish you never did,
I wish your smile never set like the sun,
I wish your laughter didn’t seem like the fading sound of distant waves,
I wish your heart wasn’t hard from all the broken pieces that couldn’t be glued back together.
I wish I could take your pain away,
Absorb the pain like a sponge until you’re free from it,
I wish you didn’t know what it meant to walk under a dark cloud even when the sun was shining overhead,
I wish you didn’t know what it felt like to cry ‘Eli Eli Lama Sabachtani!’
That moment where you begin to question the efficacy of the words ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you,’ while reality screams otherwise.
But you have to feel these things,
For that’s how you’ll know how to comfort others who feel same.
If I hadn’t gone through them, I wouldn’t know what to say to you.
So to answer your question, live or leave? I think it’s best we live ready to leave when our appointment with death comes, as it’s appointed for men once to die, but after this the judgment (Heb 9:27).
So live, my darling! For life is already fleeting as it it seems.
Welcome to Day 5 of the writing challenge.
No Single Truth
Today’s topic is a little philosophical. Matter of fact, it cuts through theology, philosophy and psychology (Yup! Had to do a little reading on that). It’s on the concept of ‘no single truth’. Some argue that having a single truth, means the rest are false. But then again how can they be false if those who follow it claim it’s true? Well, I’m not gonna bore you with all that.
Here’s what I think:
We are all trying to seek the truth and meaning of our existence. I hope your truth is absolute, and I hope it charts your way and I hope it gives you life. -M.
We all need a navigation system to get through life. Without it, we’d be lost. That’s why Jesus assures us that He’s the way, truth and life. This is the truth we believe, the path we follow to the father and inevitably the abundant life we’re called to have. Isn’t that just beautiful?! ❤️
Here’s one truth you must know to be true—God loves you just the way you are. And He loves to have a relationship with anyone who would accept Him. ❤️
Quick confession: so I challenged myself to write consistently for 30 days. But when I got home from work on Nov 2nd, weak and tired, I knew there was no way I was gonna pull it off. I couldn’t create in a state of fatigue. And then I started feeling bad for letting my blog, my readers and myself down. 😌😌
But hey, it’s day 4 today, and who says I can’t pick up from where I stopped? It so happens that today’s prompt is dear to my heart. I hope you enjoy some of the poems and musings I’ve got right here!
Ps: hope your November has started off well? 🌱🌱🌹🌹Continue reading “November Writing Challenge – Prompts 2-4”

When you see shooting and blood baths in movies, you’re a little shaken. But then you remember they’re just acting a script.
When you see shooting and bloodbaths in reality, you can’t even fathom it. How? How do people take the lives of others who posed no threats?
Oh! Such stark evil in their eyes and their hearts…
No wonder blood speaks the loudest. It screams of what’s been done in the darkest.
Words betray me tonight. All I can do is groan for the red stained soil, and for the souls whose blood cry out tonight.
20th October was the day the sun was darkened in Nigeria. 🇳🇬
