Nna’m (Father)

Nna’m, I see you. I forgive you. I love you. It has been hard getting to know each other these last few years. It has been a gut-wrenching journey, pushing past the sea of pain and getting to this shore. We have said words that cut deep, masked our hurt with hate and danced with… Continue reading Nna’m (Father)

Note to Self

Beloved, You clench your fists too tightly And hold your breath for too long Does your heart forget that peace lives within?

Like flowers in a garden Love comes in many colours It’s in your best friend’s hug And the private jokes with your sister It’s in the loud laughs with your brother And the long prayers from your mother It’s in the starry-eyed stares from your lover And the quiet moments with Abba   Love may… Continue reading GARDEN

Now The Year Is Over…

The year is over but life continues. This is what I've learnt... On Life: Forgiveness is a necessary journey for every human being and vulnerability is the very ointment that balms our wounds. Be good to people. It doesn't matter if they deserve it or not. Everyone needs a bit of goodness in their life. … Continue reading Now The Year Is Over…
