Judge me after this; I do unconsciously admit I do not worship any form of deity, however let me substantiate myself, I fail to understand how my granny has been altered from "Unkoloko" to" God". not rebutting that, but maybe I should cross question my questioning, which could be motivated by the sudden acceptance of an Owl in the neighbour (that took some time to accept). help me with this: I do hear myself addressing myself as a lil devious demon in the acts of my wor...

When I was young, my mom kissed me 365days, subtracted by the weekends of not being bullied, only to realize she wanted the heart shaped kiss to stay vividly upon the face of men to transpire the love upon my soul.

I cherish the ability to walk weightless in industrial areas without documentation to identify my identity. Acknowledging my voice and the darkness of my skin, I live in a happy and relaxed society without tension. He wished for this life.

Here is my confession during times of an economic crisis: I’m a young individual living in confined space, constructed with thin walls of a penny drop awaking, yet still unprivileged of the democratic change fought for. Parents identified and defined by 2nd level tax bracket, eating dinner of just two items in plate with occasional additives from Sunday lunch. I seek to find greener grass and a modus operandi; Mind of an opportunist, and soul of a hard-man-ship I push, and...
