My Eclipsed Scars & How I Found Christ - Part 2

Three months after we had settled in our new home, a  3-bedroom apartment, we joined the closest Catholic Church  and everything began to follow the usual routine again. Mum joined the C.W.O of that parish, my elder brothers joined the Rosary Brigade Guide & an O' War while I joined the Block Rosary Crusade  in preparation to receive the First Holy Communion.

How I looked forward to that day. I dreamt about it a lot - walking down the aisle in my white dress, my palms held together in front of me as i knelt in front the Priest (giggles...). Every Catholic child always looked forward to that titillating experience. I don't recall ever seeing dad visit the Church even  on Sundays, but as usual, it was okay since mum was already an active member so she prayed for him too. (I could only hope so).

Life is not a bed of roses and the sooner we come to terms with this reality, the better for us. We've also been told by our great motivational speakers and authors that we should let go of the past and it's baggage that would always keep us stagnant or draw us back if we keep holding on to it. But....

What if the past has refused to let us go? What if the past has

Too many questions are running through my mind as I pen down this post right now and forgive me, you must, as I do not have the enthusiasm for the ceremonial 'hey guys, welcome to my blog and so on' greetings.

Sometimes, I wonder what our generation really did? Where did we go wrong? Why does it seem like things are or might get worse instead of better?

I remember those days when I was very little; a sweet innocent girl who only saw beauty, roses and all the goodness of the world I had been born into.

My favorite memories from childhood included playing 'daddy & mommy' games, where I always loved to cook grass mixed with sand & used stones as vegetables while 'daddy' drove his car to work to get money for me to take to market to buy the household needs. I cherished those moments when I, my friends and siblings would run around the compound singing those songs we....

My First Kiss | Relationship

Leave a comment

Hey dear, thanks for coming back again and if its your first time on my blog, you are most welcome too. Today, I'm going to be sharing a rather personal story (laughs) and I'm sure the title has already given you a hint into what It's about.

Everyone has had a crush on the opposite sex at one time or the other, you know na, that guy or girl with whom you're so attracted to and you'll always conjure a lot of fantasies in your head about this person. I had such too or rather, too many because I'm always so attracted to any guy who is fair in complexion and handsome...lols. But it wasn't him. It was someone else.

Me, sometime in 2011

It was in my first year and I had just settled down in school; I didn't resume early so there was a little difficulty in getting accommodation. I had to join two girls in their flat, write make- up tests and assignments. The hassle and stress of meeting up was so much that I forgot to make friends. The 'only' friend I had....

Monster Love - 2 | Guest Post

By: Handsome Okwu

Legs wide open, blood on the floor with moans from dying lungs forming the tune. The last flash of moon was with a string of memory.

16 and untold, all the truth, only a heavy heart can bear. What must be done before the circle unfolds?
