For in foundations-deep this bane resides, From it our sight he brewed. A Lion's den, a burning furnace, An affirmation to this infinity I see. With the last of my embryonic fear Shedding in grace's mighty embrace, Like a parting sea, a prodigal racing to his father, I see hope erupting in violent splatters. Nehemiah … Continue reading To the carpenters first son, Hopelessness’ bane
Lazham Gaina Photography I have had a recurring issue, where I would hear a gist/gossip about myself and I would want to go to the gisting bodies and clarify or clear my name. Not only did this not help me in the long run, it also had a way of multiplying the pain I felt … Continue reading An Impromptu note to self
I love to dialogue, let things that are bothering me out, I love clearing things and coming to an agreed conclusion. I hate assumptions that can lead to questions and more questions as my mind spends time creating scenes that should have happened or shouldn't have. For that reason, I have kept these words in … Continue reading On Rejoicing
For in menace this abode resides,I have been pulled under once or twiceAs the tide rises. Maybe more or not,For I have lost count. I am above the waters, I like to think,An inch or two, you would find my chin.I sway in uncertain rhythm,As I paddle my limbs and hope not for the waves. … Continue reading On Days Like this…
With God, There is no end, There is no rock bottom, You keep going deeper.Tweet That's Love One of my best verses on love would be Jeremiah 31:3 in the msg version which states, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will.

You hover in the shadow Of your uncertainties, A portrait of perfection Smeared in pain; No flicker igniting within Yet, A candle lives, Lives in every soul. Delicate yet ravenous, Incandescently burning, Traveling through obscurity Erupting into the beauty Of the galaxy. That candle in your soul. Let's ignite lives With addictive hope; Giving life … Continue reading That Candle In Your Soul.
I believe in ovaries; childbirth, The war that births someone that never was. I believe in movements, baby steps, The beginning of an unstoppable giant thud. I believe in a bare field, the hope of a plantation. I believe in fire, blazing,priming,separating and strengthening; The beauty of glass, The mystery of gold. I believe in … Continue reading Believe.
My best authors are those who write in circles. Where Goodbyes are Hellos And there's never an end to the beginning. Today, As Deserts whisper with tales of seas they once held, I see mountains; A one time proclaimed lava Boasting of precious days. It is then I declare, For real this time, The Earth … Continue reading Earth: My Favorite Author.
I have always wanted glasses for as long as I can remember. Glasses are for the brilliant, I would say. I saw people with glasses as people who were in touch with some form of divine intelligence and I wanted that. The thing is, my eyes are small, if you've ever seen me reading you … Continue reading Intelligent People Wear Glasses.
I was safe in the embrace of fear I thought, As pines pricked and slimy branches choked Spilling blood for remission, Distorted salvation! In the mist of illusion, a known pain is better than an unknown. But you see Hope; The match of faith just wouldn't stay still, With one yea, it lits! Engulfed in … Continue reading Dear Old Hope
Flip! Flop!! Grandma's rhythm, An angry doorbell screaming; Callers of patience running scarce. Aunt Freda; Gossip's lantern, Everything is hers to chew. She steps in with a bag full of news, Are they true? Can you prove? Try if you may, to a naught would be your end, The best place to be Is out … Continue reading Gossip’s Lantern.
I wrote this in Kaduna last year and never got to post it. Plan B is working, would write about that when I can. Enjoy.
