Embrace It

Do not grudge pain
It holds on its hot blanket
The evidence of life
Handled and well managed
Life from it
Takes its meanings

Dedicated to a loving and caring father…

Breathe Again

Running ~ we all do
in the tracks of life

From our nightmares
to daylight
into reality.

From our past
to the present
after the future.

From sin
to guilt
into conviction.

From grief
to denial
into acceptance.

From our dreams
into desires
after ambitions.

From loneliness
into love, from love
to love.

From unknown
to clarity
into certainty.

From weakness
to pretense
into strength.

Stop, breathe
and breathe again,
embrace your self
accept your fears;
in their depths
lies your freedom.
Running ain’t freedom.

Versatile Blogger Award

I would like to appreciate bjgaulton : Toutons Tubas and Other Tales for for nominating me for this award. Thank you so much.

I was born and raised in Nigeria in Ibadan. I studied English at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria . I love writing, reading, teaching, exploring and shopping. I like making people happy, kids and nature. I love watching sunset. I dislike injustice, oppression and discrimination of any kind.

Blogging to me is a medium of expressing my thoughts, feelings and opinion. It is a way to socialize and connect with different people over the world through the web.
I found blogging or it found me at a time when I was almost caught off from the rest of the world. When my social life was reduced to zero, through it I was able to vent, reconnect and heal. I have met so many people who share the same passion and dream with me and they have helped and encouraged me a lot.
Blogging has helped me to improve my writings, overcome blocks, procrastination and be engaged in something meaningful.
