Lagos Palm Trees

Even though I grew tired of the many faces
The emotions misplaced and redirected
The regurgitated trauma of generations
being passed down to the youth

I will never forget the warmth of the setting sky
The calls and cries of drunken men to their friends
The laughing mothers, happy to forget the pain of their men
The vendors pleased to have our service, to make money
that will be ill or well spent

The stroy-telling and laughter of my friends
As different types of burnt grass linger in the air
The cajoling and pushing
Physical touch stifling and comforting
The taste of fermented fruit on our tongues
And the slurs of satisfaction and dissatisfaction alike
clearing and clouding the air

We look up
We all see different things
The day ending and the heat of night coming
Mosquitoes plaguing
Palm trees swaying
Purple hues of pink skies swirling

The fear of a painful death or a penniless life
lies at the foot of our fears
But in each other we find comfort and agitation
that a new day may bring new freedoms or constraints

Express Yourself.

Will constantly quoting my displeasure ever lead to its abandonment or its release?

Why should we bother to dwell on what bothers us? Is that not what drugs and drink are for? To help us forget the true displeasure that our existence symbolises

Mass incarceration, physical and mental genocide, generational victimisation, mass homicide

The discarding of foreign bodies and collecting their riches as payment of their own slavery

The ideation that one was raped and that they enjoyed it.

So now I ask you once more; something that seems inherently human, that is a part of us all, how do we forget or move on from? For we can document it all we like but the world has seen it all before

Bitch Face


Walking with your strong face

Long face

Aint-had-no-real-love-in-a-while face

You scream of aches and pains

Yet you wear them like they’re gains.

No wasting time on a smile

Your life has changed lanes

Those sullen feminine ways hold nothing but baggage and restraints

Aint no saviour if you’re meant to be the saint

You be strong and bear it

A black woman’s only claim to Fame

They say it’s the human race but why did these cretins set up traps just in case?

I’ll make you fear me by loving what is me.

All of me

Fashion Prison

It’s sad
That something I once loved so much changed in my madness
Or came alive to my blindness

Stick thin models and atkins diet pros
Mental melanin inhibitors dancing all over these hoes

Sneers and jeers
The only support these ears know

To drop the name of ‘hoe’ and to make my own way home

In this life you think
And at other times you know

The kinds of evil even your first love can do

But ice always feels better when it’s snow


In fields of snow

Will you hear me go?

Will you hear me weep

And not pity me so?


Instead fly like Pegasus.

Ancient old element.

They say Helen’s cup loved you too.

For even powerful men cannot resist a blow of nature.

A gift from The God and gods.


Do you hear me in the field

Washed and dewy

Examine it carefully.

You know?

Not everything you share with me.


For I see your light and desire to quench it

File it, imprison and contain it.


See all of this land is my property

Please have some propriety

and respect this famous poltergeist’s feast on your democracy.






Prolificty of Evil

Through man and through God

Through Earth and into the heavens


Open your eyes and see the strings of fear.


But don’t cut them

Or your hegemonic nose will grow

And reality will end as so

The Deception

Sands of all kinds of gold

The laughter of children and the smoking of chiefs


Elders gather to talk philosophy

Men fight in want of thee

The Champions.


Women of illustrious beauty

full lips and hair to match


Loud booming voices

bosoms blossoming with wisdom and love.


Oh my place.


A scornful look upon his reflection

She is inadequate, not worth fighting for


Flowing locks as straight as the lips of their conquers,

when they were conquered, they still did not fill


Toil in a foreign land

hard ground

Cold Ground.


The warriors now war against one another

Preferring to serve the ideas of another


The gold has left them

And the grey has overwhelmed and become them.

I am the cook with all her pans
‘Master is this good?’
The Missus pretends she knows better
We all know power dwells in these hands

I am your jezebel with hips of gold
Lips of honey
And the lustrous scent of jasmine
Plough me
Before I get old

I am the one you go to for healing
See me
For ever leaning…
Into the after life

I am the Soul of the World
For from my loins nations sprang forth
And on my shoulders empires were built

So I must inquire…
Why does one shoot the hand that feeds thee?

Beautiful Blue

As per usual it’s the dead of night



With my thoughts.


My body degrades as age passes away

My friends mock and make jest of me for my insanity


My visions of grey

My visions of red

But most of all, my visions of blue


For this Blue brings my sensuality and creativity

Keeps me at the centre of all things beautiful

Of all things Pure


But let me go

For my mockers are hungry…

Just thought I’d say…

Well, recently I turned 20. And boy! Do I feel old!

But not just because of my age, but because all the lessons I have learned and experienced through the two decades that is my life.

I’ve been through ENORMOUS change in the past year, and just thought I’d share some of the lessons that Yahweh has given me the privilege to learn and understand, so I’m gonna share some wise words of wisdom that life has taught me.

First of all, follow your destiny.

As hard as it seems, I promise you, that when you are on the path that has been set out for you byTthe Holy One, The Universe will begin to work in your favour. I was greatly inspire by Paul Coelho’s book ‘The Alachemist‘. This book helped me understand certain things in life will seem like the greatest obstacles, but if you truly discern and be meek, you will find your way to your destination with the help of The Universe, Goodness and Mercy with you every step of the way.

Second, let go of the past.

The past has got to be one of the most significant hindrances I have come across in human beings.

The inability to let the past go will not only hinder your progress, but may even make you regress, or as Lot’s Wife found out, could lead to your destruction.

You see when Lot’s wife looked back at Sodom, she was taking the easy way out. Succumbing to something called Slough. Even in Literature, as seen in John Milton’s Paradise Lost, Belial (Slough) just wants to give up and dwell in the pits of hell, and in some ways we have that option too. It’s what we call in everyday life ‘fight-or-flight’. I believe that in keeping things bottled up in your mind from the past, bitter emotions, memories, situations, they lead to a negative aura, which in effect causes you to dwell in your crap (like Belial wanted too), ending in a negative mindset, which is not healthy for one’s mental well-being.

The Universe attracts what you attract, so if you hope, pray and love, your life will inherit the fruits of all these seeds you sow (I’m not gonna tell you the story about The Sower, I’m sure you already know that lol). However, this means that if you harbor pessimism, spiritual neglect and fear, you will in turn bear these fruits. Well, I hope you do the former and not the latter ^_^

That was long innit? lol

Thirdly, trials are gonna come mate. Deal with it.

Lot’s Wife wanted The Easy Way Out, so The Universe gave it to her. She was instructed to look forward, but she worried about the hardships she would face and her procrastination cost her her destiny.

If every time we gave up when an obstacle came along, I’m sure The Human Race wouldn’t have done so well to you know, survive and all that. At the end of the day it’s survival of the fittest, so you gotta step up spiritually, mentally and physically. Don’t let your destiny slip by you because you’re too scared to fight.

Lastly, aiming specifically at my amazing Eve-like creatures.

In the past two years, I have taken my sexuality and gender into consideration (I’M NOT SAYING SEXUALITY LIKE SEX YOU DIRTY PEOPLE LOL) an what it means to be a ‘woman’.

I mean, ever since I was young I was aware of Patriarchy, or women having to act like men in order to receive the equal amount of respect and recognition a male may have.

And I have one thing to say to all females (and any males reading this lol).


For if you let The Evil of Negativity come into your life, it will be hard to let go of it.

Us women, me speaking from my own perspective, have had this idea ingrained in our head that because we were created from or after men, that we are not the original model, that we do not hold as much importance. Well I’m here to say this is a lie.

Me being a Christian, using the analogy of The Garden of Eden, see it as both man and woman, being incomplete without the other. Therefore, both, working in harmony, will make one full complete being.

So just as men should be proud of their sexuality, so should women.

Be confident even in your emotions, don’t pay heed to the guy that’s telling you you’re too overemotional when he insults you, rather know your own mind, your own actions and your own intentions.

Love yourself, love your mind and love God.

And by loving yourself I’m also referring to what kind of guys you let enter your life.

Guys, males, need us, hence why God had to create us, he knew something was missing. So rather than you feeling like something is missing, just know that everything you’re looking for is really in you and that a man should add to you, not subtract.

Which is why I implore girls to love themselves. See yourselves as a beautiful room locked away in a castle full of millions of rooms. This room is you. Adorn and decorate this room. Beautify it and cleanse it. Organize it and maintain it. And do not allow people to come and destroy, damage or steal the precious possessions you have locked away in this room, for Proverbs 31 says ‘A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman–who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls’. This is how I GENUINELY think every female should see themselves, this would help us guard our hearts and emotions, that are so susceptible to pain and hurt.


I’m done.

As you can see I had a crazy year lol

I hope you enjoyed my post 😀

Love you all!
