Hair Prices

The last time i visited a salon (about a month ago), I had an interview the following day. It’s said that you have to look responsible when you go for an interview so we are told to cut our hair off. At least that’s the policy in my father’s house. Today morning, i decided to…

Rest in peace brothers 

​Death of a close friend has a way it changes your perspective on life. You realize how fragile human life is, and how a few seconds can impact you for the rest of your time on earth.. When you hear that someone has passed on, it shocks you and the news makes you reel back…

Throw back

​Have you ever done something bad and then someone tells you to report yourself to the authorities? I’m not talking about murder or rape or something big like that. I mean these small small things like breaking a cup at home or not giving food to your little sis when mum ain’t at home. This…

Women’s day 

​#TBT  The year was 2007. Form 3. Term 1. It was on the last day of the term. We’d finished packing our luggage ready for holidays. We still had the small matter of attending End-Of-Term Assembly.

For my birthday 

​He went to bed on the eve of his 25th birthday, disillusioned with his lousy life and scared for his future. His thoughts darted from one part of his life to another with unease. The future terrified him and made him squirm on his cold hard mattress. * He thought about his primary school days,…

Club

​He sat near the counter, nursing a warm bottle of beer. He wondered how he had reached this point in his life. He felt sad and a tear silently rolled down the side of his cheek. There was chaos all around him, people enjoying their friday night off. Men twice his size pushed against him…

Savagery

​At age 10, i was the most talkative kid at home (i think i still hold that title) and everyone told me great stories about how i wd be an awesome Lawyer. I loved it when people called me a lawyer.  At age 25, i wake up every morning desperate to receive a phone call…

From me to her

​Hey dear, I don’t know how to say this, but I have to find a way to do this. Our lives right now are a little bit complicated and the silence between us is killing you softly. I’m not certain what words to use to express my emotions. The entire English language may not be…

Choices

​Life is all about CHOICE. I’ve always believed that the world is either black or white. There are no grey areas in between. You always have a choice. You can either wake up and chase your dreams, or you can sleep and dream about a good life. The people who claim that the Devil tempted…

Frustrations

​Dear friend,  Facebook isn’t the best platform to use when you need to vent your inner frustrations and problems with a specific individual. But since you usually use it to get your personal messages across to me, I’d like to copy from you and use it to get my message across to you: Every man…
