It only takes a few minutes to say “Well done, I was particularly impressed by…” but it goes a very long way.
Because, What Good Comes from Not Being Kind?
I cannot stress enough, how important it is to be kind to yourself. Learn to be patient with yourself. Forgive yourself every day because you need your forgiveness. You need to give yourself the gift of forgiveness for every mistake, every failure, and every loss.
I Write Because
I write because it feels like breathing.
I write for myself and for the people who feel the way I feel but do not write.
Maybe. I Write About Love.
Can a writer write
About the things,
They know nothing about
Have never experienced…
But make it sound like
These things are the things
Which consume them?
Insecurity and fear are loud, And beg to be heard.
Making gods of Humans
If 2019 has solidified anything for me, it’s that we should never make gods of human beings. The way the wealthy are given god status in all spheres of society is incredibly problematic.
I hope reading this makes you realize that you too are extraordinary!
My only concern is that in 2019, the European standard of beauty is still considered, not only superior but the norm, in African society and anyone who does not adopt it, is required to justify that choice.
When it’s too late…
I’ve watched a lot of people allow
pride and/fear rob them of true joy.
I Don’t Make Promises Anymore
The versions of me,
I irreparably broke,
With every single promise,
I made, bent and broke.
