The Wait Continues

Sitting on this uncomfortable as hell chair listening to this man talk out of his rear posterior. I am thinking they looked for the most brittle pine wood and decided, look this could make a great easy chair. An easy chair with two centimetres of paper thin padding. This is the kind of chair given…

Heal The World: Child Prostitutes

I hate rants, I really do but at this moment I am seething with anger. My lower lip is quivering, I am telling you froth is forming at the corner of my lips. I am almost bursting with this intense unexpressed anger. It started with this tweet. Image below. Wait what? 9 year olds selling…

Miscarried Friendships

The world is an interconnected web of people with mutual trust and support. Typically gravitating towards each other due to common interests, admiration of certain character traits and good affectionate terms. Friendship.

Why Are Women Mean to Each Other?

I once read a tweet that said, “If women ruled the world, there will be no wars. Just a bunch of jealous countries not talking to each other.” Although we might appreciate the good humor, I was amused by the underlying literary miscellany, ridiculing the vices and flaws of women.

The Beginning of A Foodie Journey

I know what you are thinking! A foodie? Yes I have always been one but just too lazy to slave away in the kitchen. Last Saturday I got home exhausted and famished. My helper served me a plate of over cooked rice and a miserable looking chicken stew, no veggies, no salad…no accessories. It tasted…

Fighting Depression as an African

A tiny boat bobbing up and down in a raging vast ocean. The licking waves slaps the belly of the boat and it capsizes The ocean is relentless, a wave engulfs the little boat tearing it into half. It begins to slowly sink into the dark under world. Drawn to the bottom by an over…

Princess Zuva

Submerged in this wonderful amniotic sac and enjoying the buoyancy of this little aquatic paradise. The steady rhythm of her heart beat, a sweet serenade. The translucent walls of the womb diffusing light into beautiful fiery orange rays. Nourished and nurtured, a budding life blossoms. 6 months later… Well that escalated pretty fast. Aquatic paradise?…

Just Another Day

The curse of a blinking cursor is what your favorite has been going through. I realised that sometimes we put unwarranted pressure on ourselves. This imaginary dry spell is a delusion created by my maniac mind. Creativity is the imagination’s production of artistic work. It has never been a problem for me. Not to blow…

Forsaken Love

I stood still in the midst of the chaos and mayhem around me. Honking from frustrated drivers stuck in congestion, a wailing baby, ambulance siren, side street vendors yodeling for attention… Can you hear my heart beat? Erratic, a constriction with an indescribable ache, searing across the chest into the pits of the stomach. Tears…
