Innocent is Sweet

I saw a baby giggling at the gentle touch of a stranger,I saw village kids grateful to see an old rickety rackety dump truck pass by,As a little boy, I couldn’t wait to play in the rain or slide on a muddy slope after rain,While herding my father’s flock, I would count all the vehicles […]

I want to be Great!

I want to be Great!Not by taking advantage of the ignorance of the people,Nor knocking down those who possess what I need in order to feel great,Neither by swindling people into selling their birthright to me,But I want to be great…,By waking up a while earlier than everyone to accomplish some tasks,By spending my liquor […]

I miss Myself

I miss myself,The glad trusting me who was confident that solutions would come,The care free me who walked around making powerful melodies of “This is my Father’s world”,The consistent me who kept their circadian rhythm at synchrony,The studious me who kept advancing voraciously for the Good Book,The faithful me who could be trusted with duties,The […]

I once had directed to me, some unkind and what I consider misguided comments by someone who ridiculed my articles on Relationships. His concern was not on the quality of my work or literary skills, instead, he had a few misgivings with the subject.

My ambitious friend and colleague in the global fraternity, like all aspiring trailblazers, felt like relationships were not an important matter. What about you?

I Tried Another Way

I tried another way,Other than ‘Trust and Obey’Recklessly refusing to heed the voice of love,Sweetly reminding me that there is no other way to be happy in Jesus,Outside the path marked ‘Trust bad Obey’So I took the Nearest diversion to the left and increased my pace,Seeking to take gigantic gulps of whatever there was on […]

Swimming out of the Pool of Unemployment

If you sack Jose Mourinho today, the following day another giant club will announce him as the new manager. Larry Madowo gets out of BBC North America, and he is working with CNN Africa.  These cases look too good to be true. The secret is not in the said organizations, but in the individuals—they have something to offer that you don’t easily come across.
