Reminisce…

I thought I would always be 15 or 16 or 18,  I thought I would never grow old Thought my parents would always cater for me I thought my vote counted I thought the person I voted in was going to make me want life I thought I would be rich, Rich enough to be alone Rich enough to be satisfied I searched for stability, searched for complement I thought everyone would be nice I thought they would never hurt me I asked them if they could love me? Asked them if they would be reckoned with me? I thought words were reliable. I thought I would never hurt someone I thought they would accept my apology I thought the world was kind I thought everyone wanted peace I never knew that the man was different from his soul Never knew he felt pain for the bad he’d done Never knew my thoughts ‎could become life Advertisements

Drifters

‎We drifted apart like the leaves on a tree,  Slowly and steadily, we forgot our likes We forgot the things we did together And forgot the memories we had We promised never to forget but we have forgotten We had an item of the other but treated it like trash Had a song but forgot the tune Forgot the day, we named each other Forgot the day we laughed so hard Once we were fools but now cannot remember Cannot fathom the fact that we once shared a kiss Cannot understand why we looked great together We have forgotten to love and are no more lovers Forgotten the reason we once wanted each other Forgotten that we said just the two of us We have forgotten and are now as strangers Strangers on the same bed we sealed our love Strangers on the streets you said yes to me Like a bird with no soul, we have become one as one.                               AnastasiaRuth

Tower of Babel

Like the tower of babel, we are a people of diverse tongues, A confused nation, a menace society ‎Imitators with lack of understanding We are a nation of thieves A nation of corrupt governance A nation of injustice Settled in a vast and prosperous land A land we make no use of We are displaced in a wide and fruitful territory Tribes of different kind, languages with numerous boundary ‎Judged by one man, we are one man Forgetting we are one, we murder ourselves We teach injustice and cry out for justice We signal the hand of peace and cut the hand that wishes us peace A people of independence, we live in chains We have forgotten and so we are forgotten Voting in the men with misplaced priorities We have dissected the men who ‎could break our chains We remain in the bondage ‎of our diverse tongues Because we believe that language is our major problem We have become the city of babel A people with different tribes and languages A people who believe our different languages are our best assets A people with confused states, a people of confusion.                                             AnastasiaRuth

3 Facts About Nagging Men

Originally posted on Hope Nwosu:
There’s nothing as annoying as a nagging man; be it a colleague, a friend or a passersby. The feeling is often similar. The worst part of it is when you live under the same roof with that kind of man. The Bible says it’s better to live on the roof top than with a nagging woman. However, it didn’t specify what to do when the man, the supposed head of the family turns out to be the ‘Nagger’. Should she also pack up and live on the roof top? There are many reasons why a man may  choose to nag in his own house, rather than seeing to his God assigned duties and ‘enforcing’ law and order. Some may be emotional, psychological or even spiritual: 1. Insecurity: This may be one of the main reasons why some men nag. It seems to be a means to voice the inner turmoil. They may be afraid of their future or not been able to meet up with people’s expectations. 2. Low self-esteem: Generally, people  who don’t feel good about themselves tend to look for other things to fill the gap. A nagging man is often one who finds fault with every thing around him. Usual and normal things in the family like the sound of his playing children suddenly irritate him and he tends to transfer his anger to his wife, in form of endless and tiring…

Injustice…

‎I gait my feet on the ground and heard the sound of thunder,  A thunder of tears, a thunder of groaning Innocent souls made the noise of injustice given to them Thunder of reproach, thunder of revenge With so much cries, they heard no sound None of the people did hear For they had watch them die Die the death […]

Women

Originally posted on Cristian Mihai:
Women. Some are like air. They fill up the entire space available inside your heart. Chameleonic in nature, they quickly adapt to become your biggest dream… or your worst nightmare. They take everything you give them, without even asking. But the one reason for them loving you will always be the shape you give them:…
