All I ask is that if the end draws near, it comes quick and painless.

I want it so because, I do not believe in crying or bleeding tirelessly as the news hits me.

I want it so because, I can move on almost immediately from news that may not please me,

and rather than wallow in self-pity for a mere 24 hours, I wish to seize the moment and bask in self-satisfaction.

I would always prefer to be a smug s.o.b. than a pathetic clingy vexation.Featured image

It has been the longest time.

I lack excuses, therefore I write simply to air out my human frustrations. It frustrates me that these things frustrate me, but I am only human and cannot choose what affects me.


Is it so wrong to love? To want to be loved and cherished?

They say if you find that person early, it gives you more time to spend with them

They never remind you that you can never be absolutely sure and the sum of your mounting experiences will determine that.

To be miserable in love is a wretched affliction I would not wish upon my enemy.

For some people, love is their whole being…that romantic wistful dreamy love.

Not the realistic, heart-wrenching love with its ups and downs that make even the strong reject their feelings.

Am I too young to know such a love? That is yet to be seen

I know how I feel about my Mother, my Father and my Brother

I know how I feel about chocolate, jewelry, and every Matthew McConaughey movie I’ve seen.

I love certainty, order and for things to be what they are.

I love to be clear and for people to be just as clear with me.

I do not like feeling unimportant to someone who has told me that I am of the utmost importance.

I do not like feeling betrayed, irrational and controlling.

There are no words to convey my exact state, only that I prefer to be happy.

Happy suits me.

I do not want to feel or be miserable in love.

Today marks the day most of my friends feel they can begin cracking the “you’re so old” jokes with me and all I have to say is, I’m just grateful I am alive to hear the jokes and to laugh with as many of them as I can.

Sometimes I can be a little dark or quite grim, but at the heart of my cold steely exterior is a warm beating heart yearning for days lost in her childhood….(I’m totally kidding and totally cold).

:) Anyway.

Super grateful

Super happy

& feeling super loved literally from all around the world.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Happy New Year.

There are definitely other ways to achieve the success you seek…it doesn’t always mean drop everything you love doing. Sometimes you only need to find true balance. This year, that is my resolution. Not to simply abandon my blog, but to make time for it like anyone else who loves doing this.

Happy New Year everyone!

My dance team (African Students Association dance team) performing to Stromae’s Papaoutai.

Anything and I mean anything is possible if we believe it is- this team made me believe that. We made this dance in two and a half weeks because we were fully determined and we had a smashing successful performance. Please give it a look.

It’s been a month or more since my last FF post and it was not from lack of want but a real lack of time to indulge even in the simple act of blogging itself. I am happy to contribute this week.

Whack, Thwack, Thwack!- Again and again with no mercy

Fiercely dealing out the beatdown of a lifetime ruthlessly with no mercy lurking about.

For such a sweet looking lady you would never have expected such strength and monstrous ability

She kept stabbing and cutting as violently as she could

She would get the job done before the police officers came and ruined everything

No she could not have that! She had planned it all out and had put in so much energy

Cold to her touch

Her husband’s 50th birthday gift; a statue honouring his time as Chief of Police. (100)

“Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words”- Edgar Allan Poe


For this semester one of my classes is a 400 level writing based on most poetry and workshops on mostly poems. I do believe I am quite excited because now I can attain an academic perspective on my poems and poetic abilities. If all goes well I know I shall be overwhelmed with joy and if all does not….


I shall cry and wail till my tear ducts fail

I shall weep till I can create my own pond

I shall leave nothing but a sorrowful trail

I shall fear all and from school abscond.


But I hope, pray and know all will go well.


“The only reason to ever point a gun at someone is if you intend to shoot them”- Anonymous

Metaphorically speaking you could do this without a physical gun..words are enough. Like someone recently told me, do not apologize for honest feelings for it is better to be real than to be fake.

Thank you.

Forks & Straws.

Devouring and consuming all in sight,

The wretched ghouls come out at night

Condemned souls looking for thrills at their work place

Not knowing the perils they shall face.


Graveyards are no place for love making

To the demons that roam, the souls and flesh found are for the taking

They come prepared with cutlery and utensils

With fear and trepidation all hearts still to be broken like window sills


Marco, Polo they all yell out

No response, not a scream, shriek or shout

Everyone knows how they’ll be eaten

Their hearts by forks, brains by straws and flesh uneaten.
