Journey to the future: My Chapters (6)

A lost soul who doesn’t want to be found cannot be saved. Unfortunately, that’s what some of us are, lost souls that embrace condemnation and forbid hope. We lust after being saved but pursue darkness at all cost because we think the idea of light isn’t meant for us. This right here is why people get suicidal; they are aware ... Read More »

Journey to the future: My Chapters (5)

Journey to the future broaches the theme of God’s existence; it’s denial in the face of multiple misfortunes and tribulations. I remember the review of an author whom I handed some part of the manuscript to read. She said, How can one man go through these things and not lose his life except God designed his journey. Olufemi, this book ... Read More »

Journey to the future: My Chapter (4)

My father once said to me, Kunle, don’t ever allow the world drive your heart to hate. You will experience pain, betrayal, obstacles, and make certain mistakes. Do not let it change who you are, guard your heart else you will suffer more agony. It takes courage to forgive your enemies; it is only a coward that seeks retribution. Revenge ... Read More »

Selfless comes after self

There’s a Yoruba adage that translates, “the world will make a mockery of whom they carved you into today, tomorrow.” It is a solemn reminder that no matter how much love you have for people, self-love comes first. It is good to be selfless but it is wrong not to consider yourself adequately. The negative effect of doing otherwise is ... Read More »

  Mama rues the days she bears me. Her tongue spits a burning fire, An antique dagger it remains In the heart of father.   In the wake of the sun she would curse her hidden stars. And in moon’s reign would praise the ancestral power Of the river goddess who smut her The wound of a withered fertility.   ... Read More »

Expectations

I am not perfect and that humanely disqualifies me from judging others. Nonetheless, I am an emotional being and that means sometimes I feel a little too much, hence the essence of today’s post. To share a story of how people you prioritize don’t show the same commitment and how much it hurts, but to also liberate our minds of ... Read More »

You only owe what you borrowed

The biggest mistake anyone can make is to be sentimentally stuck in a cycle because you don’t want to appear bad as it may seem. That is, when someone does something for you and because of that you automatically think you owe them your life. That way you become scared, so afraid to move on because you can’t imagine what ...

Parent-Child Preference and Comparison

You must have heard of parents who swap their children’s birthright for different reasons. That’s what this post is about. Should parents have favourites among their kids? I think such preferential treatment can bring about enmity within siblings. Do you agree? It’s obvious that all fingers aren’t equal but do we need to intimidate the shortest? Isn’t it beautiful to ... Read More »

The Other Side of Femi Fragile

My birthday is in 8 days and I am thankful to the Almighty for the opportunity to own a breath. I spent the last 48 hours thinking of how to celebrate it with you and I have come up with a plan to do a post about myself from today till then. I wish I could host you all to ... Read More »

Police, Thief and I

Lightening shadowed thunder and heavy drops of rain hit the earth. The sight of evil is always beautiful from a distance; no one wants to miss the gist, reason bad news travel faster. I used to think it is only when seeing a movie that I am so fascinated about the bad guy getting away from the police, that moment ... Read More »
