Love me fiercely.

Love me boldly.

Surprise me with hausa koko at work. Fight for the last piece of soft wele when you buy me waakye from Auntie Adiza, just because you know my heart will smile when my teeth sink in with ease.

Cover me with a blanket and kiss my forehead even though I am fast asleep. I may not be awake but the universe will know that this girl is loved- by you.

Hug me harder when I push you away. I know you know what my heart is really saying.

Man in the Mirror

Does your reflection scare you? When you look at yourself what do you see? Can you find a monster in your eyes? When I woke up this morning, I never thought I won’t be able to look at myself. When I put on my favorite yellow dress, I couldn’t imagine having the audacity to set... Continue Reading →

Dear X,

Dear X, You're not just the 24th letter of the alphabet. Yes, it's difficult forming words around you- but maybe that's because of our history. I hated that subject, by the way.
