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. Why are the majority of…

The Greatest Debate On My Blog: Batman Vs Superman

So last year I wrote a rather interesting and thought provoking piece Why Batman Is Better Than Superman the comments section set ablaze as my readers had different reactions. Although every one tried their best to articulate their opinions there was one person who went in guns blazing, with 200 words per comment. This guy…

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…

Hello September!

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…

Should I go? 

His eyes bore pleadingly for mercy. Mercy. An emotion far fetched and implausible as the return of the dodo. I marveled at the artistic cuts that slashed across his face. He never looked so beautiful with blood clots slowly scabbing on his face. I slowly ripped off the tape that covered his mouth. “Please I…

Pregnancy Woes

Here is the thing, if you see a pregnant woman be nice to her, smile, and show some kindness because she is going through a hell unknown to most. The experience is comparable to the sweet nectarine taste of grape fruit and the unexpected harsh after taste. The beauty of bringing a new life into…

A Bee Tale

There once was a hive the grandest of stations It regularly turned out the sweetest libations Then one day two bees took a moment to ponder The pondering ways of those bees over yonder In the midst of this instance here enters a third Whereby this ponderance gave flight the absurd See it wasn’t a…
