Dear Future Husband

Dear Future Husband, I aspire to be better each day until I become worthy of you. While I am working on myself, I hope not to get lost in my imperfection that I begin to take you for granted. Like other girls, I have made so many peculiar messes in my wake. I have had and still have guilty pleasures.…

One Room

See, the memories from my childhood helped me become the man I am today. The life we lead was adequate motivation for me. My mother doubled as our father too. I have my own family now and I give them my best, but I don't go about judging others who can't. I have experienced the blurred side of life, so…

Sorry, not sorry.

Issue your apologies to people who truly deserve it, would value it and not seek to exploit it by turning it into a blackmail tool. Twice or thrice over the month did I apologize to a few friends because I valued our friendship more than the conflict, even when I wasn’t necessarily wrong. Guess what? They all became malicious, defensive…

I am Thunder

How did I know the thunder was inevitable? Because lightning struck twice on the same spot where I was bruised. Guess what? I was still healing; storming through life quietly, hoping I'd find some luck. Some days optimistic, other days defeated to the soul. The pain was like a cluster in my heart, made me live in fear. I wanted…

A Remorseful Love Note

Baby Girl, This letter isn't an attempt to sway you back into my company. It is simply the only way I can express myself and hope you understand. I spent the whole of a quiet night thinking about us and figured I was slowly letting you out of my grasp. Perhaps, if I had thought more about us, we wouldn't…

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…
