#LyricalMonday – Mayah

Standard

Mayah is my baby, my son has his eyes on her …Mmeme and Ziya, take note. So we have had several discussions every morning she stops by the office before heading to her creche. This was one of such days. By the next poem, I will take you to the next level of our conversation. Enjoy!

#LyricalMonday – In my world

Standard

There are days you pray, wish, dream, try to create your world to have a certain outlook and it’s just DULL! What do you do?

Today isn’t one of those days for me though 🙂 Yippee! Perhaps, that was your story. You can do what I do when I’m faced with that, go into that special place you keep happy moments and stuffs that make you break out in a smile and just pitch a tent there till you are truly saturated. That was the inspiration behind this piece.

I truly hope your evening is so much magical! Enjoy!

#LyricalMonday – How dare you?!

Standard

I got up and had this conversation with myself, as I empathized with an unseen unknown person caught up in the place between the valley and the mountain…a place of uncertainty and despair, surrounded by people who throw words from vocabulary they have never experienced and I imagined the person pretending to ‘accept’ what was said “Just so you leave me alone”. The sympathizer leaves feeling fulfilled and the questions flow unending in the other’s mind and I asked ‘How dare you?’

But then again, this is a fight of faith, to steal the flicker of light that gives us hope in despair. It’s a battle and one you must win. So whilst you ask the question, be reassured of the answer, there is light at the end of the tunnel no matter how dim it is.

#LyricalMonday – Life’s pleasures

Standard

Life has its’ own and it keeps offering you. But what you make of it, is yours to own. Knowing this and knowing that you have the mind of the Creator, it’s on you to carve out how you want the painting to be, the story to end and the display you want others to see.
Some times, it is really hard. But hey, that’s life and whilst you are in it, I can only say “Let’s swim with, against, in, above, under the tide… and whatever we choose, let’s not play dead.”
Live life!
