Not a Suicide Note

Hey friend, Please don't do it! Don't go to that bridge. Don't knot that rope. Throw away that poison. Don't kill yourself because it isn't working. Please do not embrace death as an escape route from the thunder roaring fear into you in these dark times. I know death may feel like a greater option because nothing seems to be…

The Villa 6

I was interrogated by the police for about two hours and I maintained my innocence. I didn't know a thing about Aisha's disappearance and that was it. Trust the faulty police system to try and do what they aren't trained to do. The officer in charge of my interrogation stopped asking me if I knew where she was and started…

Full of Love, Fool for Love

Tade looked into my eyes with fury and expressed his disappointment in me. His exact words were, "Femi, when it comes to love, you are a dunce. I am afraid all these girls will keep taking you for granted if you don't learn to put yourself first. I can't believe you let this happen again and let yourself be used."…

Mr Miss-fortune (#DontBeBadLock)

My mother said to me, "Ajumobi O'kan taanu, eni Oluwa ba ran sini, ni seeni l'oore. It is life's imperfection that help never comes from where we anticipate it." It never occurred to me that the one who wouldn't pull me up would dedicate his life to bringing me down. Lived through life together but he would rather see me…

The Villa – 5

Previous Episode I heard horrible tales of my short spell of madness when I eventually became aware of the reality of what happened to me. I should have just passed, but I had to join Sly and consume his eba. The moment he told me he made the soup with marijuana, I became conscious of my actions. I double-checked every…

For better and worst

The say, the devil you know is better than the angel you don't know, always imprints on my mind that talk is cheap. Nothing is black or white except both colours. Biblically, the devil was once an angel, hence, everyone who manifests evil intentionally also displays kindness spontaneously. This is because good is innate in every being. The transformation to…

The Villa – 4

Everyone lived in the increased fear of Baba Ade after the mystic death of Ade’s pregnant woman. I have heard a lot of tales, even watched countless movies where ghosts dress in white and haunt their killers, but I never imagined experiencing it firsthand. There are countless cases of couples murdering their partners due to domestic violence. However, living in…

Manifest in Others

Have you ever been someone's reason for not giving up? When was the last time you motivated someone? Nobody has it easy. It will interest you to know that perfection is more of a problem than the beauty it describes. This is because it is beyond the world's imperfection and at such requires breaking imaginary boundaries to sustain it. It…

African Warrior

You can feel his courage from miles away, With heart beating passionately for the service of his people. Carved in the strength of a man drenched by life's imperfection, he fights for tomorrow even when he knows he could draw his last breath in battle, Despair always hid in his heart but his eyes never betray him. The purpose for…

High

High is what I find in a glimpse of hope when the odds are against me, And not in the extra gulp of liquor that I drown myself into only to wake up to a new dose of misery. It is how I walk when others mock me with words their inadequacies describe, And not in a tiny roll of…
