Two steps back, one step forward; a propelling paradox?


INSPIRATION: There are two ways to perceive painful experiences; a feeling of regret, or thankfulness for lessons learned. In this paradox, I reflect on my own process of introspection. This was what seemed like hours and days of self-reflection; an analysis of the root cause of what I’d call ‘self-inflicted suffering from an internal dilemma’.Continue reading “Two steps back, one step forward; a propelling paradox?”

I’d still choose you, Love (A poem)


I’d still choose you, Love For the freedom you give For the memories you give that hold my breath still,  And for the air you propel through my trachea that is as audible as the tune from my subconscious. Because with your fresh aroma, I need no exertion With you, I just need to beContinue reading “I’d still choose you, Love (A poem)”

The communication of non-communication; building a reputation of trust and respect


This month has been special. For a month dedicated to sharing about unconditional love, it has truly been a trying one for me. I am of the opinion that the five love languages are not exhaustive and I personally believe that every person appreciates each of the five love languages to a certain extent- IContinue reading “The communication of non-communication; building a reputation of trust and respect”

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?”

CONFIDENCE looks good on YOU; A personal ‘case study’ and analogy


Growing up, at every stage of my life, my height stood out; literally! It started from my hospital crib, where my ‘length’ was the adjective used to describe me to my dad. Although, I must admit, being exposed to more people makes me realize that the average Ghanaian isn’t as tall, compared to other partsContinue reading “CONFIDENCE looks good on YOU; A personal ‘case study’ and analogy”

Stop Using The Word Normal


Stop using the word normal. Start using the word average. When you look at a Gaussian distribution, otherwise known as a normal distribution,  it runs from negative infinity to positive infinity. In other words, for any characteristic, with a large number of people(this is an important statistical caveat), you’d expect that most people would aggregate aroundContinue reading “Stop Using The Word Normal”
