The age of apathy; the middle ground between love and hate.


I imagine being given two oranges!; one with so much juice and seeds, and the other, however, simply being like the first without seeds! I like to picture love as an act that proceeds to bear more good fruit! And while it’s been thought that hate is the opposite of love, for me it seems,Continue reading “The age of apathy; the middle ground between love and hate.”

A tsp of forgiveness, a TBS of grace and a liter of love


I was recently caught up in a quagmire, where I struggled to process an emotion! From my previous blogs, you will know that I am big on the virtues forgiveness and love. I’d like to think that grace is the link between forgiveness and love. To show unmerited favor (grace), one would need to possessContinue reading “A tsp of forgiveness, a TBS of grace and a liter of love”

The difference between wishers and doers; the art of discipline


“Build castles in the air but support them with pillars” Shared authorship James Annan and Samuel Y. Annan I remember hearing these words from the lips of my dad and for a very long time, it’s been a principle of mine! I called daddy this morning to verify the source of the quote and IContinue reading “The difference between wishers and doers; the art of discipline”

He was customized for the Annan’s’!


Clearly, the world’s confusion about standards makes me pause with the statement ‘I have the best…’. I’d like to think that for the person I’ve become and I’m continuing to grow into, God gave me exactly what I needed and still need!  Daddy! His intellect is my favorite quality of his. I haven’t met aContinue reading “He was customized for the Annan’s’!”

00:54 hours- October 21, 2020


Awake, at 00:54 hours The clock ticks clockwise, and then anti clockwise. I stay awake, emotionally paralyzed The críes keep me awake The pain immobilizes me The wailing tortures me And to think that the culprits lay at night, tapping their shoulders ‘well done’….. Evil parades on our streets with such audacity! When did weContinue reading “00:54 hours- October 21, 2020”

A love allegory (An exposition)


A couple of months ago, I engaged friends on social media in a discussion about love and this is  a compilation of our conversation! Feel free to share your thoughts on this as well. ALLEGORY: “Like a bird freed from chains, when do you fly? The problem has never been love or the question ofContinue reading “A love allegory (An exposition)”

Love personified


Now I stay in love. Is love a place then?  Is it already morphed or is it continually metamorphosing? If love depended on gravity, would a fall mean stagnation or a state where one continually chooses to be low for the benefit of a SHARED Love? We’ve often treated love as an verb. The conceptContinue reading “Love personified”

Love Whispered(A poem)


Love whispered; I made it to you. I finally made it home, to your heart; the gateway to your life’s course. I found the key that you had tossed at the bottom of the ocean and I navigated my way right back to you. I made my way to you, yet you shut me IN.Continue reading “Love Whispered(A poem)”

HOME; WHEREVER I AM (A POEM)


Inspired by a recent dialogue with a friend Clearly, if I walked on by and I could recognize it, I might call it home. If my lips could part to allow the air through my larynx an escape, without my brain processing its phonetics, it certainly would feel like home. If the thought of itContinue reading “HOME; WHEREVER I AM (A POEM)”

Confidently SELF-AWARE or Confidently PROUD?


Why is this example important? While the subject of discussion is not loyalty, I believe there’s nothing that feeds pride more than blind devotion; a nod and clap to EVERY gesture, action and word from a person. Pride makes anyone feel invincible and incorrigible. “A proud man is always looking down on things and people;Continue reading “Confidently SELF-AWARE or Confidently PROUD?”
