It’s been a long while I published a work on this platform. A myriad of excuses abound in my head right now that would explain my absence (school, school and more school), but you don’t deserve my whines regarding this subject.

The deeper I go the higher I get; In your arms the pain of life disappears. Let’s climax where … Read moreWRITER’S WEDNESDAY
You are not a tree is a statement that has become second nature, due to constant usage. It’s my reply to every situation where the power of choice is not being used. A tree has many attributes; resilience, strength, etc. But its approach to life can be uninspiring. A tree stays and takes in all … Read moreYOU ARE NOT A TREE
I read. A whole lot. Most times I read multiple books at the same time. Currently one of the books in my horizon is “Becoming” by Michelle Obama. Gosh that woman is amazing. If you haven’t read it, do so. Trust me. I wish I could take credit for those words above but I can’t. … Read moreGROW UP ALREADY. NOT SO FAST!
