He Regrets Marrying my Mother! OR was it the Alcohol?

“I regret marrying your mother! Rose, I regret marrying you!” My head froze. He called mama by her name. Like they do their mother – him and his brothers. I wondered why he had to tell me marrying her was a mistake. What I was supposed to do with that information. Her knees were bleeding […]

The Scum of Dakar: #MisimuZangu

Kenya was just dusting its shoulders after Kofi Annan had succeeded in talking Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga to forming a coalition government following a contested General Election whose aftermath gruesomely took away the lives of more than a thousand people. My uncle was lucky to survive the machetes that rained on his body at a […]

Misery

There is a way out of the feeling of misery; change. How hard it is to keep improving. It is almost as if clinging to past wisdom is the only thing we know how to do best. I’ve been disturbed by this before, and even recently. But sometimes the wisdom of yesterday cannot be the […]

Free Yourself To Free People

Life has taught me that there is no other way to be happy other than being myself. The world will want to fix you into boxes you will struggle to fit. People will want you to do things that work to their advantage than your comfort and peace. If you are a friend, work for […]

A Letter To My Soon To Be Woman

Dear You, I’ve been having funny dreams lately. I see you walking into my life with parachutes and lots of bags – baggage. Yes, I know we are about to fly, but are you ready to carry my luggage too? I’ve been born and raised in closed boxes and where I am now is a […]

I Am My Own Man!!

  Pressure. That’s the word ringing in my mind. Confusion…and confusion. Am not sure what falling in love means anymore. But I am, it’s loving someone, right? Man-woman, woman-man, right? Men in my age live like they come from a different planet. Or at least the women in their lives make them. Well, we make […]

Love Can Be Foolish, But It Shouldn’t Be Stupid!!

The heart sparkles with emotions  that very time you’ve found someone new. It’s like a whirlwind that hits  you! You want that feeling to stay infinite. It tastes special, fragrant  and unique. It gets into you the more you spend time with them. We all  love it. Oh! Even the aged. It respects them not. […]

Are We Or Are We Not….In Love??

The human heart…the young human heart. I look at our lives, the confusion we live in. Falling in and out of love, having friends..with benefits…dreaming of perfect relationships…unrealistic ones. Sometimes I wonder what kind of children we’re gonna make if this is the world in the 21st Century. You and I have very dark secrets; […]

When Love Goes Lemon, We Become Lemonades

I know there is this someone whom when you think about you wonder how on earth you ever fell in love with. Maybe you were stupid, just foolish or they stole your heart for some moment before breaking it into pieces and you were just unaware all that time of how things were going. No […]
