Kuku kee me!

Parenting requires patience!!! Personality also plays a huge role in parenting! Sometimes the littlest things could aggravate you because kids only act or react within the limits of their knowledge which could be really limited, by the way. Your desire to consistently be a cool dad for instance, will be tested so frequently and it…

Beauty in diversity

I had an early appointment today and I was trying to get ready in time. My phone was ringing consistently from the top of somewhere but it was not a priority at the time. Audrey kept calling me. If you have ever been pestered by a child, you may be able to relate with half…

Crack a smile, will you?

I have two daughters. Audrey is over the age of Four (4) while Peyton just recently crossed Two (2). They are a delight to be with, not just because of their intelligence which is significantly astonishing, but because they are active and dramatic and could influence the mood, even at a carnival. What is even…

Lessons from Ile-Ife

My mother told me I was born in Ibadan. I remember us living in Ile-Ife at the time before we relocated to Ibadan four years later. But she could not have lied, could she? No reason to. I hold a few memories from Ile-Ife: 1. One day my mother fried bean balls (àkàrà) and placed…

New me, New Ideas

When I set up this blog about a decade ago, I had no idea what it was meant for. It was therefore void of focus and where purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable. So I abused it. Poured all sorts of junk in it. Poems, articles, write ups, things that belonged here and things…

Rather die

She is beautiful, that’s true. With bright eyes and full lips, long neck and sleek hair Her skin smooth like polished wood Her smile so charming, it makes your heart melt   She is indecent, that’s true With bare cleavage and exposed crack, lost morals and obvious thighs Her nipples firm like cashew seeds Her…

The Ex’s poem

It’s not okay to walk away, to turn your back or change your lane It’s not okay to quit today, from all the hopes I brewed to stay It’s not enough to wish for more, like I’m a plague or scar or pore It’s not enough to say goodbye to what we have, I’ll tell…

What will it take?

If I asked you to mention the three most influential people in the world today, you will probably mention President Obama of the United States, Queen Elizabeth of England and Ban Ki Moon of the United Nations. More than half of the 7 billion people in the world will be willing to do anything just…

Christians in Politics: Yay or Nay?

INTRODUCTION Politics is real. It influences our life and living from before we are born till the moments after our death; from the minute we wake up each day to the moment we go to bed. It affects our health, our homes, our jobs, our resources and our families. But before we discuss politics and…

So much madness in town!

I grew up with a mad man. My father was never mad and I never lived with a guardian. Making reference to comments made by my mother over the decade before the last, it is safe to conclude that I was born in a clinic situated in the brown-roofed city of Ibadan, even though I…

Seeds of life

  This month is a seed, invest it A peephole to your future, respect it We know the status quo is tiring, detest it You feel pain, you want gain, suppress it They may offer cash for your soul, reject it Throw shades to diss or piss you, deflect it ‘Cause value comes with dignity,…

LIFE & I – Sanmi Abiodun

I’m twenty eight It’s getting late The world wouldn’t wait To have a taste Of what I create So I should in haste Hold fast its waist Exert my weight Promote my faith Or live a waste   I’ve walked some miles But feet are fragile I must be agile To remain mobile Destroy my…
