And so my aunty, Temi Enemigin invited me to join this 5 day Poetry challenge, this is day two!. Enjoy…

I had one Chance
Just One Apple
very Sweet
Given to me by Eve,one eve

But every time I am blamed by you
Yes you
After eating more than once, under skies blue
Many chances, yet you blame me

ehm! take responsibility for your bite
You have time to make it right
Please do not take left
Enough time on the pitch
Dont play Reserve

You have your garden
live right in light
Yes I am Adam
Stop blaming my Madam


Elyon’s Letter

Dear Elyon’s,

I see things; the unfurling of mysteries. I see the birthing of a dream, the extinction of purposelessness. I see a pool of visions vaporizing to the heavens for a heavy downpour on humanity. I see transformation, a dissection of the divine order for the comprehension of a new breed, zealous with knowledge. In these panoramic views, I see you, Elyon’s Paradise.

I’ve lain beneath the sky in faith that it would be emblazoned by sparkles of your reflection. But all I could behold is a firmament, bland with the refulgent moon, graceful with the sun. Some nights, when piquant stars effect their elegance on the heavens, a shrill of intimidation runs down my spine – on your behalf.

“The sky is big enough for you to fly!” Thus says the motivational speaker. But our reluctance to fly aren’t always hinged on our belief on the crashing of our space above by stiff competitors. Rather, it is inspired by the fear of ascension to lofty heights.

Elyon’s, I’ve watched you cuddle in the safe haven of mediocrity, an abode that shrinks you from the class of Eagles. Dazed by a mental agitation, you sprawled in the bed of comfort; where your abilities wouldn’t undergo the refining furnace of public scrutiny. In that haven, you found safety for a long while…. until vision gave it’s loudest cry!

Now you’re bolted off your blind realities. You’ve shed ties with mediocrity. I see a new you determined to take the punning shit from unbelievers of your vision. You’ve come to accept, I see, that the entire human race mustn’t be your audience. There are people whose ears have been structured to listen to your voice.

This day, the dichronism of your personality begins it’s journey on transmitting radiant light to humanity. A-three-dimensional-buffet from your inside is served to the spiritually, physically and mentally hungry. There is a fattening of souls, a robusting of intellects. Hearts are gaining redemption from pervasiveness and purposelessness is getting debased.

Dearest friend, I regret not the years I laid under the sky waiting for your shine. Now when piquant stars spin in their galaxies I smile, for your twinkling greets my eyelids. I implore you to maintain your shine and forget the buzzing shows around you. Never give your head to pride; it will snuff out those visions forever. And whenever you get stucked in inspiration or lose track of your destination; pack up the stress, take a deep breath and remember that He who began a good work in you is able to complete it.

With all the love in the world,


An atmosphere that breeds development

Understands the importance of tick tock

love and smiles are currencies of trade

Giving your life the right direction

The heart of Jesus concerning what a church( people) should be is a gathering of sons, that have the capacity to gather more sons and maintain the steady growth of those already in the house. This is ensured through the working of his spirit and the sweetness of his love expression. One of the things I missed the most leaving school ( prospective corper shan things oh), was the House of CU-NIFES: The feel, the atmosphere, the love, the spontaneity in the spirit and the worship( Our Choir make sense men).

Fast forward!  Port Harcourt : I am beginning to get some of the thrills of my time in school. I found a home where I could be free to express myself within the  bounds of the love of God ( 2 Cor 5 :14), an atmosphere of worship (Ekehuan own still dey ring for my head sha; we had the time!), creativity in conveying Gods word, a “digital church ” ( Leke Alders coinage) and emphasis on giving your life a direction. It is called the #TheWisdomPlace Church.

Why am I telling you?I am enjoying myself and I want to share. To encourage someone, somewhere to find a home where growth is encouraged and the spirit finds rest. Find where you were meant to be and enjoy God to the fullest. Obviously, there might be times when everything doesnt seem to make sense, someone annoys you or decisions  don’t favour you; but when the resolve was a led one it becomes easy to scale through.

Maybe there is someone there almost giving up on Christianity because of church experience! Please Understand that God loves you dearly and he paid  the price to make you the best you can be. Let his love shared abroad in our hearts guide your decision;respond to life situations the God way.Find the home, that God has planned for you and he will walk you through any challenge that comes; I have found mine, have you?
