How I Dealt With It.

In the end what really counts is how well we lived and not how long.

This I’ve always known, but I saw in reality through the life Tola lived.

I can say with all confidence that I have no regrets marrying her because I knew she was God’s will for my life.

Over The River

Over the river
And through the woods
I desperately seek to recover
From my pains and wounds.

In wandering, I’ve wandered
In searching, I’ve searched
In crying, I’ve cried
In praying, I’ve prayed

And after all has been said and done
I find no solace
Whilst I go through the furnace
In my huge manacles.

Omotola: Sorely Missed, Not Forgotten

I like to think writing, for me, is therapeutic as much as it’s a passion. But sometimes, certain events seem to nullify that position. They stand like giants and poke fun at me right before my eyes:
“No darling. Your writing can’t do us nothing!”

Wedding Day (Part 2)

The nights passed and the days dawned.
It was the engagement day. Everyone fussing around and excited about the joyous celebration.

Tola could not contain her joy, yet, it was one of mixed feelings. She would be leaving all she had known behind and moving on with her life, with the man of her dreams, Olushola Samuel Ajayi.

Wedding Day (Part 1)

It was time to rest in advance for my big day. The hustle and bustle of preparation for me was over. No outing sprees nor over excitements I had been told. My big, black leather box lay gently at the corner of my room. The room was as cosy as always and warm from the rug’s presence.

Peace has overtime been described as a state of rest and harmony, a period free from war, discord or strife. More often than not, we tend to see peace as a time of total comfort, away from every form of anxiety and worry. Yet, this is not a true summation of what peace really means.

Hello December!

Hi warriors,

Happy December! It’s the last month in the year already, trust you’ve had beautiful moments in the last eleven months. May December be much more beautiful for you.

It’s really been ages I wrote something on the blog. It feels really beautiful to sit once more with a piece of paper and a pen, however few my words may seem.

Living Strong

It was a beautiful time out with Mrs. Omilola Oshikoya, Mr. Oyakhire Russel, the production crew on Heart of the Matter, including the godfearing, wonderful, handsome, and loving young man always standing solidly behind me through thick and thin, Olushola Ajayi, popularly known as Bishopforte. The creative director behind

To Be Brave

Well, I got this poem from a little friend yesterday and I thought to share with you guys. She had told me it’s culled from the book, “Music Therapy”. As I read, It sure hit me once more that courage isn’t the absence of fear or the ability to take things in strides like they aren’t happening, or merely pretending that things are fine. No! Courage is believing that God’s got you in His big, strong arms and right there, there’s absolutely nothing to fear. It’s having immovable and unwavering confidence in God. It’s an attitude of unquenchable trust in God’s infinite abilities to see you through insurmountable challenges. And yes, it’s a gathering of all the negative circumstances, pains and challenges you get into a strong punch of faith in God. Keep believing!

Daring To Hope

Under a cloud
Of both depression
And hurting emotions.
I stand comatose,
Like a patient for a craniectomy.

Going through the tremor,
Is sheer painful labour.
I think it,
That I ain’t in favour.
But something tells me,
It’s only but a vapour.
