This Song

A chorus resounds in my ears
I recognize the voice
I’ve heard it times before
It has become my medicine

A chorus resounds in my ears
It gladdens my heart
It calms my nerves
The lyrics- my mantra!

A chorus resounds in my ears
Oh! How sweet the melody!
That put me to sleep every night
And opened doors to my beautiful dreamland

A chorus resounds in my ears
This song now lives in my memory
For I no longer hear it at bedtime
My mother, the singer, has gone to peace

A Girl. A Canoe. A Horse.

Take me on a ride
I’ll let you be my guide

I’m just a lonely child
Abandoned, now free n wild
I find comfort on these shores
As I ride on my horse

Take me on a ride
Let nature be our guide

We have to ourselves
Land and sea
On which would you guide me?
My horse or my canoe?

Thanks for reading. I shot these images in 2018 but I recently got inspired to write this short piece for the images. I hope you liked it. ๐Ÿ˜Š


I shut the door at them I let you in I chased them all away I let you stay

Before I set my eyes on you My heart beat for you Still haven't set eyes on you But pictures help hold on to you

Far away from here I know you are here I am safe, I don't fear My heart holds you dear

Dazed by Cupid's magic wand I sway to the tune of Love's band I found in Newfoundland My own new found land


She tried

She tried to show you  But you wouldn’t see She tried to tell you  But you wouldn’t listen

Oops! Sorry ma’am, Miss. “Your own is even better” Not here to compare conditions  Not here to measure situations  Not here for any of the ‘tions’  She just wanted a listening ear And an empathetic mind 

She tried to show you  But you wouldn’t see She tried to tell you  But you wouldn’t listen

ฤ˜ pรจlรฉ ooo Mr. “I’ve been through worse” Life doesn’t revolve around you She just wanted help Her soul screamed for love!

We all have our struggles But life would feel lighter  if only we’re there for one another

My 25 25

Hello Deelivians! I trust you’re doing great. I’ve missed youuu ๐Ÿ˜˜
It’s my 25th birthday! Whoop whoop! In the last 365 days, I have come to learn a lot about myself. Earlier this year till recently, I had to deal with a lot of unpleasant happenings. That’s pretty normal, right? Life is full of ups and downs. The downs this ldast year of my life ehn! No be beans. I even had a mental challenge for a while about 2 months ago (don’t ask), but I thank God for good people that SLAPPED it out of me. However, something super duper exciting happened to me early in January though. Hehe, again, don’t ask. 
To foster positive thinking and to learn more about myself and make me happy, I asked 25 people (male, female, teens, young adults, close people, people I’ve never met, etc) to tell me what they like about me. I chose 25 because I’m clocking 25,lol. This is a sort of feedback and personal behavioral evaluation. What to do with what I gathered? I will learn, know what good traits people think I h…

What am I?

I’m a mess I’m confused Entangled in my own self I’ve created my own maze And I don’t have a way out

I’m a mess But a colorful mess I’m beautiful, bright too A delight to the eyes I blend perfectly wherever I am Adding color to your space

But deep within myself I’m just a beautiful mess
Only I can see this misery 

Hi! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Thanks for reading. Let me explain this one.

So I was at a friend’s office last November. I saw this thing on his desk and I liked it. It’s a yo-yo... I think.  I was playing with it as I admired it. I loved how beautiful and colourful she was.  I decided she is female and I named her Josephine, Jojo for short ๐Ÿ˜‚.  There is a reason for that name though,  but you will just conclude I’m not normal so let me leave you to figure it out.

Anyway, I decided to do a photoshoot for her. My friend, Deji, was the ‘assistant photographer’ (please don’t shoot me Deji). Now some of you may know my former phone. That phone has seen better years but that was what I had. So I took different shots…

I thought I knew you

I thought I knew you Till I knew I thought wrong My head must’ve been in my heart Coz my mind thought what it felt

You were perfectly dubious Loving and hating me at once Your mouth spat love in my eyes And blinded me for a while

Oh! I thought I knew you! Till I realized I didn't know me You changed me Then left me clueless
