There are times when I get discouraged and want to stop posting. That’s when I meet someone that gives me every reason not to. There are words that need to be written There are souls who need to read it. Let me be your words Let me give you the the perspective you need to take that next step in…

Release


I've always wondered why we rely so heavily on other human beings. The same human beings that Eat, sleep, and breathe like I do. Why do we give their opinions so much value? I find it hard to listen to others, not just because I am stubborn at heart, But because... It's hard to know who to trust. In human…

Blind 


My biggest downfall is that I see the good in everyone and give them the benefit of the doubt. I don't believe people would want to hurt me... until they actually hurt me. It's shocking.  I then spend so much time trying to figure why, why people are the way they are, why they would try to take away my smile,…

As some of you know, I was YOUR Miss Anambra State in the 2017 Miss Nigerian USA pageant. I can be totally honest now that it's over. My REAL initial reaction upon receiving that letter earlier this year, stating that I was one of the contestants was "Oh s**t! What was I thinking?? I can't do this!" I remember that…

Let me explain to you the category of women you're about to place me in. Upon meeting me, you're going to notice my calm nature. You're not going to know how to take it at first, but eventually you'll start to feel comfortable. So much to the point where you'll tell me things that you wouldn't normally tell a woman…

The Lesson


I met a man who helped me see myself through his eyes. I chiseled away at my flaws for him. Casting out all my demons. So I could be perfect in his sight. I faced my fears head on for him, Even when I wanted to take flight. I would kick, scream, and fight for him. I would do it…

Silent Angry Black Woman


I've been "making it" through life. Avoiding my truths, Avoiding my pains, Avoiding my honest feelings that have been harboured in my heart. One hurt after another, I brush it off and "keep it movin" just to make it through the day. All because I refuse to let a man see my pain. Looking at the next, unimpressed. Mentally labeling…
