I will choose to be a fool, but not of and/or for love I will do it over and over again. If I was asked to be wise and live a long life full of suffering or a short one, happy without trying to understand things and people, I would choose the later. They say… Continue reading I will choose to be a “fool.”
It’s been years since my previous post, sorry for being away for such a long time. In this piece I write about intellectual freedom. Edited by my friend, a doctor and a poet herself. Also added a few thoughts of herself after i sent it to her to go through it.. Enjoy Slave trade is… Continue reading Slaves of Freedom?
This will be short. Writing this in between my B.pharmacy classes. Words are not always like they seem. Ar times someone might say something which might appear vulgar or insultive but the intention is not to be offensive. To be an “educated pig” is something I strive for! Honestly, I love eating.. hence pig factor… Continue reading Educated pig!
This is one of the poems which you don’t feel like publishing because it is somehow personal and exposes your inner self and thoughts to the world hence making you insecure. But then again if I don’t post, of what benefit is it to me? Inspired by “I was here- Beyonce” I have to warn… Continue reading When will my time come?
You don’t have to wait until you are ambassador to France or chairman of the Clambake Committee of your lodge before you use this philosophy of appreciation.

“I May Commit many follies in life,” Disraeli said, “but I never intend to marry for love.” And he didn’t. He stayed single until he was thirty-five, and then he proposed to a rich widow, a widow fifteen years his senior; a widow whose hair was white with the passing of fifty winters. Love?

Ferret out that reason – and… Continue reading Try honestly to see things from the other person’s point of view.
Some readers are saying right now as they read these lines: “Oh, phooey! Flattery! Bear oil! I’ve tried that stuff. It doesn’t work – not with intelligent people.” Of course flattery seldom works with discerning people. It is shallow, selfish and insincere. It ought to fail and it usually does.
