Life, The Bigger Learning Ground.

Being a Nigerian, the need to study within the educational system has never been up for discussion. It is an unspoken religion in my family. In fact, the damaging repercussion that would engulf one’s entire existence if ever they were to suggest to their Nigerian parents - ‘I do NOT want to go to University’ [...]

There Is Always a Conversation!

I find it hard to escape my thoughts. There always seem to be some form of conversation going on and it irritates me. Sometimes I catch myself catching myself in my stream of thinking and it frustrates me. I spend so much time in my head that nothing ever just happens to me. I have [...]

You’re the kind of God that spoke light out of darkness You’re the kind of God that speaks understanding out of silence You are not an Ordinary God Sometimes I fear I will never move I don’t know what it will take for me to move Out of my comfort zone and into yours I [...]

To London.

Whenever I am reminded of you My rolls sink deeper into each other as if they haven’t been acquainted for years The ten year old girl in me no longer stays up to listen to the roar that forms from the innermost parts of you. Whenever I am reminded of you I am reminded that [...]
