Strawberry Cravings While Out Sick

Standard

I was ill for a day or two 

More I suppose 
My doctor said it was the flu
Bad case of ear infection and perhaps asthma
My body frail from pain shook with each ache
Even as my lips quivered…
They quivered for you
You…
Juicy red between cold (chattering)teeth
I desired you like cold medicine
Dripping down pale chin 
Soothing frail licks

Cooking Food

Standard

    It is the simplicity therein

    The joy that comes from cooking food
    The love that goes into eating food
    Sometimes it is the other way around
    The love that goes into cooking food
    The joy that comes from eating food
    

    Tuesdays

    Standard

    Tuesdays!
    Tuesdays are no different from Monday…They are in fact Monday holding on in disguise
    Then there’s Wednesday, mid-week….She makes you feel good like you are almost there
    Except there’s still Thursday…dragging like a whore’s cigarette smoke…
    But Friday makes it all better…if you are lucky…its pay day play day
    But somehow Saturday is always only a few hours…five at the most….
    For Sunday fun day soon comes and goes like lightning speed…
    And in no time, Monday is back on the horizon…Holding on for too long
    Two days in a row…Disguising its second attempt as Tuesday.

    Because you are…

    Standard

    I love you dear daughters

    Because you are mine

    For so many reasons I could never explain

    Because you are mine

    Because you are fine

    Because you are fast

    Because you are blasts

    Because you are loud

    Because you are round

    Because you are shy

    Because you are smiles

    I love you dear daughters

    Because you are mine

    For so many reasons I cannot contain

    Because you are whole

    Because you are gold

    Because you are bold

    Because you are so

    Because you are joy

    Because you are fun

    Because you are noise

    Because you are bliss

    I love you dear daughters

    Again and again

    For so many reasons I don’t even know

    Because you are mine

    Because you are ours

    Because you are us

    Because you are more

    I love you dear daughters

    I will say it again

    Because you are love

    Because you are joy

    Because you are you

    Because you are true

    My most perfect truth

    The truth about myself: A story on self-hate

    Standard

     photo2

    I am learning to accept myself
    But I hate my stretch marks
    And the irritation they often cause
    Although they are reminders of a joy that now completes me
    I am learning to accept myself
    But I hate my small boobs
    And the big thighs that rub too
    Although they make me look good in blue jeans
    I still can’t wear short shorts
    Or skintight dark jeans
    I am learning to accept myself
    But I hate my big butt
    And the way it pops out of every dress and begging always to be seen
    Although it frames me in pencil skirts
    And long gowns that flow in summer’s sun
    I am learning to accept myself
    But I can’t stand the thoughts
    That my legs are marked with spots and dots
    Hanging thick in black boots
    And falling short with mini skirts
    Although I must confess they carry me far
    On long walks and fast runs
    And my dainty toes sure look good in flats and such
    I am learning to accept myself
    But my hair sheds at the sight of comb
    And itches from the root up
    Although they are as dark as late nights and
    Fall fine to cover my freckled face
    I am learning to accept myself
    But…

    Walk With Us: #bringbackourgirls

    Standard

    Our voices must echo louder than the bang of their guns
    Our words must resonate higher than the boom of their bombs
    Our stand must remain unified in the face of their intimidation
    The ripple effect of our actions must trigger faster than the chaos they inflict
    We must fight against the madness that is fast becoming Nigeria…

    Walk with us on 5-10-2014 #bringbackourgirls
