Am I Truly Free?

I took a trip down memory lane,

half-expecting to bump into you along the way,

but to my surprise, you were nowhere to be found,

so, I asked myself;

“Is this it? Am I truly free?”

Men of the Night

They came at night, lifting their evil banners on one hand, and darts on the other. They paraded streets, looking for souls to abduct, and men to recruit. They chanted perilous slogans to announce their presence, and no one dared to remain outdoors whenever these marauding fellows came to ‘play’.

They were men of the night who caused lives to take flight, they were hijackers of peace, and of course, every man’s nightmare.

Surprise Yourself

There’s always more to us we don’t know. It’s probably why we keep surprising ourselves.

We are all full of surprises, we are all full of abilities we don’t even know we possess, until we tap into them. I know of writers who know nada about literature, yet they write as though they were groomed in it. You are like, “nice pun”, “your imagery is superb”, “your way with metaphors is one of a kind”. And they are like “what the hell’s a pun?” “What’s a metaphor?”Likewise, there are traditional/visual artists who know nothing about the rules involved in the art they practice, all they do is mess with it till it makes sense, and I mean MAKE SENSE! 

So, go, try those things you think you aren’t good enough for, try them and surprise yourself.

Stubborn Heart

This heart has been to a tough war,and there, it got punctured, 

there, it bled, and bled,

but never did it die.


The mutilations it suffered,

won’t mar it from loving as it should. Though it seems out of shape, 

it will continue to beat perfectly.

Though it looks severely broken,

the love it holds will forever remain whole.


This heart has been to a tough war,

but it shan’t stop reeking of pure love.
