Walking Hands

The longer you live the more mistakes you make and eventually, if you're not careful they catch up with you. I wish the younger me from a few hours ago had an epiphany of this nature. Life has a way of sucking out all the joy from you and at what cost? Your happiness? Happiness... Continue Reading →

Deadly Sleeps

Rolling around in a deep deep sleep... Tempted to touch I feel a wicked cold streak, Down my spine I shutter with fear! Am I awake, I hear a beast in my ear. Tossing and turning; I yelp! Frantically panting for breath; I scream for help. Sweating like a mule. I suddenly feel like a... Continue Reading →

Who are you

Our lips are thick, our noses broad, Our hair is nappy; we are black. And we are beautiful. We are tall, We are large and broad. Our feet stamp with authority that sets us apart. We are dark and we are light. I am within this mighty tribe; A sleeping beast with what they think... Continue Reading →

Of the Unknown Unknown

There are things we do not know we don’t know...I love and hate this phrase for very obvious reasons. Basically, this goes beyond the fear of the unknown towards the fear of the unknown unknown (unexpected or unforeseeable conditions).

His hands were rather large and maneuvering a slippery oval-like vegetable tested his balance and coordination. This is a sharp knife and a rebellious vegetable we’re talking about here. He liked his omelette... Continue Reading →

Blood Scented Flower

I’ve been swerving of late. Strained my back recently and I’ve never felt a bodily pain this bad before. And to put your racing minds at ease, I wasn’t doing anything out of the ordinary; not even hanky-panky – I’m content with not seeing much of that either. I think this is when you’ve gone...

DEPRESSION IS REAL

Someone I know recently graduated. One friend just completed a second degree. On the other side of the world a couple just got married, a good friend got a promotion and I’m truly happy for them. Am I? Others are making music; I’ve always wanted to delve into the deep bowels of this artistry! I... Continue Reading →

What to do?

Consistency! Something I've dabbled with for a few months as I try to recover last year's blogging form. A mere three posts since the turn of the year is rather upsetting whenever I think about it. And yet my draft tray has a rather high number of fiery words waiting for their moment to be... Continue Reading →
