New Book Alert!


Here’s a book that I stayed very late reading. It’s titled Beyond Now by Maggie Smart from Nigeria.

You don’t wanna miss out. Grab a copy for yourself and while you’re at it, grab at least two for your friends, when it’s out.

The Dreamer

I have always dreamt
To go higher and farther
To do things people only imagine
To be a person of influence

I have always dreamt
To find me in places
Where most people with graces
Gather and commune without grimaces

I have always dreamt
To live above the norm
To be that difference
Bearing the torch that lights the way

I still dream
That all these dreams
Causing my lack of sleep
Will some day all be fulfilled



The Morning

The dawn makes its way

Through the dark sky

As the light

Breaks forth on the horizon


Birds sing and fly across the sky

A Part Of You

See me as you are
Like I came forth from you
Treat me like you would
Treat and care for you

Road To Success

He steps out in hope
On a journey that defies hope
He lifts up his eyes to view the pathway
It seems so long and wearisome

Despite the doubts in his heart
He falls into step on the path
Determined to get on it
However discouraging it seems

Halfway down the road
He looks up to survey the rest
The hope in him falters a little
As there was no end in sight

He trudges on in resolution
For he had been told
That quitters never reach the end
Of the road to success

One Perfect Man

At different stages in my life have I liked them

But none could capture my heart

The way it so desires
