6 after 9 (i)

June 10, 2019

I often ponder, recently,What will be of calmIf 6 came after 9Would we sternly frown, try to fix it,Or confused, panicking for an explanation, helplessly drown. If heaven gets located under the earthAnd hell is where we are underneathWould it all make sense or throw us off balanceLike aha! No wonder all evil pleasures takes […]

I’m a silhouette seeking colors…

May 31, 2019

If you found yourself in my shoes, you would choose to walk barefootA lot on my plate isn’t actually nutritiousI’m not balanced ‘cos I ain’t die yetYou’d ask how I became this? I’ve learned from my indecision making decisions for me. I’m a cross between strong morals and I have to surviveThese soiled hands can […]

There’s a whole lot of self-love quotes flying aroundHappiness promoting woke statements tooSo I tell you, friend, We have an abundance of it here.

I was born a sinner

March 9, 2019

I was born a sinnerBut I promise I will be better. I didn’t choose the natureBut my choices ain’t yoursI grew up in streets that are hotFor the men are cold. I lay blamesLike for me, no good foundation was laid. I believe in a higher beingBut never needed HIM to get high and pleasedI […]
