Old Lady in My Dream.

Yes I saw the old lady. It was her. She was standing right next to me. She stretched her hand as if asking me to hold it but I was not sure whether to so I did not stretch back. That moment, I looked at her face and it looked old, skinny and dry. I realized she looked sad and miserable. Like she had been living in a land with no water, no life and no love. It felt like we had a connection...A special connection. I could feel her heartbeat. I could feel how sad she was. I could feel too much already and I was afraid. I was sure

A Day in My Life..

Today morning I woke up feeling sick and a friend proposed I go to the nearest hospital.  I don't know why but the thought of going to hospital totally freaks me out. The last time I was there I was injected. At this age, I still fear injections. The pain, I can't take it but I try my best not to shed a tear. I sit up and start to plan my day. Am the kinda person who sleeps not knowing what the next day plans are going to be. It's Thursday. I check my alarm and realize am thirty minutes late from my usual wake up time. Damn..This

Please, Take Me To Church

I stare at my white ceiling. The white ceiling that has huge brown spots due to the rain licking inside.  It's staring back at me. Does it ever get tired? My mind hits back to how many times I have had to consult the caretaker. It's like am usually preaching to him and he never seems to understand what am saying. It has now become a daily habit to always remind him I need my ceiling fixed. Few months down the line, still nothing. At this point I feel like giving up and just leaving this house completely. I have had enough

Yes Mama I Did it!!!

I sometimes look back at my high school life and wonder how I made it through. I was not the best that everyone wanted me to be. I was average. I hate average. Average this, average that. I wanted more. I needed more than just education. I wanted to experience life outside school. Life outside the closed gates. Life outside wearing uniform the whole time. This is what I wanted. Freedom to do what I want at any time. I had a dream.... I recall one day an uncle of mine asked what course I wanted to pursue after school. Ok , here

It’s the good life…

I still look forward to that day. That day that I will just lie in my warm bed the whole day. Have breakfast in bed, Lunch in bed and just lie there. No stress. No worry about life. I look forward to that day that all I will be doing is picking business calls from clients and telling them to work as per my schedule. If am not available, no meeting will take place.  I call this the good life. No meeting will take place because I will be the boss lady. I do the clients hold a meeting without the boss-lady been there?
