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…

PREJUDICE

Racist pharmacist refused to sell a Negro some Paracetamol My ego denied me to beg this parasite-rat-mole. Like a Moabite I bite back Pull out my revolver, it’s my instant resolver  A morbid resolution. My only solution. See my Nana been ill She been in pain for real. But this superior antagonism undermines the realism…

One Eerie Night

The distinctive threatening atmosphere of the night has the nape of my neck on its ends. An invisible emanation of lurk. My phone is dead, I can not alert the man to wait for me by the bus stop. This drop off is a famous mug spot. I jump out of the kombi my heart…

Prompt : Hate It

hate it… When things don’t explode as I walk away… When saucy dogs hump other people’s legs… When molotov cocktails don’t break on the first throw… When theme music doesn’t play as I enter the vicinity… When being ordained an e-minister doesn’t strike fear in the hearts of children… When I buy a lab coat and…

Listen Up Kirk Frost #LHHATL Season 6

Kirk, Kirk, my man Kirk. Do you know how much I had invested in your marriage with Rasheeda? Emotions, hope, trust and I even gave you a second chance when you threw that apology party for my girl Rasheeda. I believed you. That party had fifty shades of sincerity and new found respect for you…
