His story (Short Story)

He looked around, bewildered. A history buff, a cultured fanatic – Ade was no stranger to museums and exhibitions. Caesar, Napoleon, the Pharaohs of old – Ade was witnessing fragments held in glass, yet to be deciphered in his mental mind map. This was not short of an obsession. Tales of the ancients, Ade was…

Preyer (Poem)

First time in decades, they rose to their feet, Realising where their hope lay, conceding defeat, A great feat, how successive pitfalls had led to this moment, Now no more doors to open, the light inside had shown them, Standing in front of their Lord, while time had been so generous, Submitting to His splendour,…

Justice foretold (Poem)

Intangible cords and chains, decapitating the intellect, Incorporating corpses to brains; a fascinating intercept, How a tool so powerful, can be rendered as senseless, Leaving us as devoured fools, to our offenders – defenceless Shackles on the mind, systems that aim to paralyse, Tackling our designs, false admissions televised, Enticing to deceive, placed limitations on…

The Mirages of Intentions (Poem)

Silence speaks (Poem)

Silence serves a greater wisdom, Than idle talk or vacant expression, And we could avoid these collisions, If we walk, and take a lesson,   The losses from our silence, Are easier to recompense, Than what crosses the line with, Words that were never meant,   So often we might speak without thought, Speech lacking…

The Holy war is within. (Poem)

He pondered in his path, Seeking direction amidst anxiety and despair, Wondering in the dark, Blindly searching piety through his fear, Misguided as a troubled youth, Amidst a glimpse of what he’d seen, He’d hide away from the truth Trying to convince himself of dreams, An option so appealing, To be able to leave the…
