My Chocolatey Brown Skin(a poem)

For the tenth time that day,

I stare and stare at the skin behind my fingers

I stare because it’s a wonder and a delight

According to my mum and dad and my best friend.

My friends call it chocolatey brown skin that reminds them of the KitKat bar no one could never resist

My parents tell me, chocolatey brown skin that reminds of them of Earth, of the soil, of the land.

I can’t stop staring because

Like the creepy man at the bus stop says,

It’s like the eight wonder of the world

And as I stare and stare at my chocolatey brown skin,

I wonder what the man I always see in the train sees

That makes him look at me with eyes full of disgust

Anytime he saw my chocolatey brown skin.

And then I wonder, what my boyfriend sees

When he calls me cocoa and all the names that belong to Starbucks drinks

I wonder what about my chocolatey brown skin makes me so different

I wonder what about it draws so much attention

I wonder what about it makes everyone extra sweet to me

I wonder what about it makes me less of a human

I wonder what about it reduces me to sugar filled Starbucks drinks

I wonder what about my chocolatey brown makes me keep staring at the skin at the back of my finger.

Girl with the yellow dress(a poem)

Yellow was the dress she wore

Yellow which represents joy and so much more

She was so bright and not a bore

She said two words to me or maybe four

She stayed until all I saw was just a blur

Yellow really was the dress she wore.


hi! How are you? I really hope you are doing ok!

I don’t even know what this post is, I just wanted to write something; this was the only thing that came out. Thank you for reading either way.

byee:))

*don’t forget that God loves you forever.

The Dance(a poem)

I wake up with a smile

With the feeling of positivity and cheer

The dance has stopped..

I get to work and waste no time

I plan my day and I am ready to go

I smile widely and brightly

Feeling the best I have ever felt

The dance still has stopped..

Then, I wake again

Awoken by the feeling of negativity and regret

The dance has resumed..

I am held back by the voices in my head

And I find it so hard to get up and get going

I just want to bury myself deep in my head

And disappear with the dreams I felt I had

The dance is still going..


Hii people! How are you doing today?! I hope all is well. If it’s not, I pray that God will keep holding you up in Jesus name! Amen.

Remember, God loves you forever:))

byee y’all

Some days rain; Some days no rain(a poem)

I know I am dying and I feel death at the tip of my finger,

On the top of my eyelids and on the scars that mark up my body

Not complete death of me but death of parts that make up me

It really feels like I am slowly dying but what do I call this?

A funk, a rut or maybe it has fully progressed into depression

Some days, I am bursting with hope

Like a farmer during raining season

On days like this, I feel on top of world and above my problems

And that nothing can stop my lips from crawling into a smile

I feel fulfilled, and full with purpose and direction.

But some days, I am left to burning with hopelessness

Like a farmer during a tough season of drought

On days like that, I am completely lost in the absence of my reality

Buried deep in my pile of rubbish;

Characterised by the feeling of loss of direction and purpose

Yes, those are the days when it dawns on me that I am dying

Dying slowly maybe not shortly

I am losing air and slowly but shortly,

I am forgetting how to breathe.


Hi people! How are you doing?! I really hope that you are okay and doing alright! Please don’t forget to always try to keep your head up high and don’t ever stop trusting in God! He is always there for you:)

I know, it’s been a while since I have posted something on here and honestly, I have been going through IT! I am trying to sort things out and trying to get back here on my blog, it has not been easy but I’ll be back by God’s grace.

As always, thank you for reading! I will see you in my next blogpost:))
