    For us Nigerians, repeating words is important and it helps emphasise our message and help the receiver of the message to let the message sink in.

    I feel, for many adult going into relationships (romantic and platonic), they go in, with their past relationship trauma, which influence how they see this new person.

    As much as our experiences are there to teach us and guise us through the future, it is very important we give people benefit of doubt, it's important we stop looking at the future our past.

    ...cool down, cool down.

    Still on my quest to let in the world on the effect of rape on victims, especially girls...

    With so much having done concerning the right of the female gender, it's so unfortunate to know that, rape cases are still a thing around us, today.

    So, this is my contribution to the fight against rape. Writing in the third person to show the pain these victims have to suffer because one male human put his pleasure over the pain and person of another female human.

    Tolani, the damsel every eye wanted to keep in sight,
    every hand longed to feel and hug tight,
    with the skin the sun never set eyes on,
    beauty with good brains, everyone
    followed her to have a pick on.
    Calm like the dove, humble like the lamp
    everyone's favourite, with smile that's heavenly.
    ...until she was robbed of her innocence,
    dragged out of her heaven into misery
    by a boy who refused to beckon on discipline
    to help him put his manhood under the hood,
    and teach him to put his ego in check.
    Her big NO was a slap on his handsome face,
    and all his empty head could come up with, to keep face
    was to force himself on her and put her in a phase.
    A phase that forced her into the family way,
    the way she diligently refused to tour.
    Each night, sadness beats her heart to tears,
    the stars cry every night seeing her this way,
    in the day, her broken spirit continues to grieve,
    misery has come to dine with her, promising not to leave...
    Oh! Sweet Tolani! I curse the day that boy crossed her path,
    boy who took away her colour, and left her on a colourless path.

    The inspiration of this poem came this morning and wouldn't let me rest until I give it life to live. It was tough, I'm glad I'm able to finally do it.

    What do you think?

    I could tell you how beautiful you are
    but that won't be new to you
    as the beautiful girl that you are
    men couldn't have missed a chance to tell you

    Still, if my mouth doesn't open up to you
    about the way your beauty gets my heart
    swinging like a kid who has sweet melody in his heart
    my heart won't forgive me because of you

    Please allow me to jump on the bandwagon
    Let me tell you, how your beauty gets the flowers jealous
    how the stars leap for joy after looking at you all night
    how your smile is as gorgeous as the sun rise

    Your beauty, both my eyes agreed is a wonder
    can't get enough of your wonder

    You can't do what you don't know, so also, you can't see what you are not looking at... It is important we continue to learn, unlearn and relearn to position ourselves up right we can do things better and give us an advantage.

    Never saw it coming,
    my eyes were wide open,
    still, they missed the coming,
    everyone was informed, I'm no longer open,
    open to anything of such. Coming
    from me, it was a shock to them, but they are open
    and hoping things will change as we approach the coming
    new year. Everyone's eyes have been wide open
    checking to see any trace that suggest my coming
    home with the news that will grant them open
    heaven of good tidings, you know how coming
    home with good news can lighten us up and open
    our hearts to sweet melodies coming
    from where we can't go to. So, they are open.
    With a firm feet, I wasn't open, then your coming
    into my life, saw my heart get big and open
    to this beautiful thing called love coming
    from such a unique soul with an heart so good and open.

    Women face all manner of daily, things that are very ridiculous. The world has successfully set all kinds of bars for the female gender, all is an attempt to keep women in the back seat.

    So, when rape happens to the female gender, it goes a lot more deeper than for the male gender.

    We really need to protect the female gender, and allow them enjoy the same opportunities males have.

    More than that, the issue of rape must by all means be tackled in all its forms and way. Sexual abuse must be stopped.

    Already, the world was against her,
    she had to deal with plenty of don'ts,
    don't dream too high, you will be under a man,
    don't put on that kind of clothes, you will make a man fall,
    don't look too beautiful, only whores look too beautiful,
    don't have options, a girl is created to please her husband,
    don't be too strong, strength looks bad on you,
    don't be too bold, boldness isn't feminine,
    don't patronise your happiness, it will scare away men,
    don't don't don't, all kinds of rules she had to obey
    like a military personnel.
    Felt like her life was for others to live, while she spectate.
    So, when he pounced on her like she was his horse,
    took over her body like it belonged to him,
    dug her private parts vigorously like an animal,
    refused to pay attention to her crying pains,
    and chose his pleasure over her tears,
    all her pleadings fell on deaf ears.
    She lost it, and couldn't move past this one,
    this very one took what's left of her,
    and turned her into a puzzle she can't solve.
    ...now she's asking; "who am I, what am I, whose am I?"

    Left His crown to pick up man's nature,
    left His royalty to be a commoner,
    a King beaten and treated as a thief,
    for the sins He was innocent of,
    for the salvation of you and I,
    He took the pains and suffering with love.
    All He gave was love,
    all he got was the opposite of love,
    He gave everything freely,
    even His life, He offered freely.
    He was born for this life,
    He came to offer His life, for your life.
    That He did without holding back.
    He was born, He died and He is coming back.

    He promised to make everything
    beautiful in His own time,
    So I took a chill pill,
    I pushed the pill down
    with a cup of warm water.
    By all means, I'm rejecting everything
    anxiety brings to the table.
    I cheerfully awaits His time
    cos, in His time, everything
    gets pretty beautiful.
    Only in His own time,
    does everything syncs and gels

    I can't but stay back and enjoy it, whenever I see someone doing what he/she loves.

    How wonderful, beautiful, heartwarming
    beholding a man doing what he wholeheartedly loves!
    It is like a picture of a newly
    wedded couple who just got a new home
    at a dream location.
    It is like looking at a mother carrying
    her baby for the very first time.
    It is like looking at a father cheering up
    his child to victory on the sideline
    in the face of multiple odds set against him.

    Come see the girl that caught my attention
    You need not to look elsewhere
    to look for an art masterpiece
    once your eyes behold this God's masterpiece
    you won't even doubt, God took His time on this masterpiece
    Nowhere in her body lacks behind
    a lot of man has lost it because of her behind
    Her hand once landed on my shoulder
    like an aeroplane landing at the airport
    and my body was electrified like
    the Apostles on the day of Pentecost
    Immediately I saw her, I got numb
    like a man battling with paralysis
    for some minutes, I was lost in my thought
    trying to fathom if an angel came to visit me on earth
    Her legs, her legs are in a class of their own
    they carry her around like everywhere is her own
    she has these beautiful chains on their necks
    that make them step out in styles like royalties
    The beads on her waist sings songs of solomon
    they help her waist makes beautiful silent sounds soothing to the eyes
    All day, everyday the sun does nothing but worships her black skin,
    the moon is always happy to show the world her pretty black skin
    but the flowers can't stand her 'cos they're almost dead with jealousy
    Everywhere she effortlessly gets all eyes on her like...

    A lot of people are able to absorb pressure and take on blames without complaining. You see people throwing at them all manners of things.

    These kind of people have made things easy for people around them that, nobody expects them to get angry.

    Nevertheless, there's so much anyone can take before breaking down, or bursting out. So, we have to be care what we dish out to people, cos when these kind of people burst out, it's like a tornado!

    The effect of rape goes on and on, especially when it is not well dealt with through help from family and loved ones.

    Perpetrators of rape are wicked and selfish people who don't consider how impactful their evil action will be on the victims before going on.

    Rape is a long lasting effects on victims, some victims never get to overcome the impact, so they suffer all through life.

    It was a one time thing, didn't last twenty minutes,
    yet she relives the experience till this day,
    it happened many years ago, she was only a teenager,
    feels like yesterday, she's no longer a teenager.
    He poured his pleasure on her, without her permission,
    his selfish and wicked self didn't care about her.
    She deals with the odour of his pleasure everyday,
    making her see life with a blurred vision,
    a wounded heart unable to move pass what he did to her,
    anxiety has long taken a hold of her,
    what was meant to be a pleasure has become a terror,
    her life is on the edge, everyone in trouser is a suspect,
    she's convinced, she deserves no good thing,
    and her life is for everyone to toil with as they please.
    Beautiful sweet girl with the world in her hand to take,
    but unable to, for she has a damage inner self
    that has continued to keep her in the mud of despair.
    After many years, she's still trap, her scent hasn't return.

    Rape cases often leave victims in a state that is cumbersome to comprehend and explain.

    Most victims never really get over the event, especially those whose family and friends didn't help them heal, they grow up to become a shadow of who they should have been. They go around with all kinds of issue, plus they most time, find it extremely difficult to build a good loving relationship.

    By all means, plz say NO! to rape!!!

    Like a log of wood, she lay there on the floor,
    unable to fathom what just happened to her,
    she couldn't believe it happened to her,
    felt like a nightmare, she woke up from.
    She was there, in the company of silence
    gazing into everything, but nothing,
    totally lost in her thoughts...
    Too many questions flooding her head,
    begging for answers, answers she knew not where to find.
    ...his sense was right where it should be,
    yet, he took over her body for his rapture,
    like a white master abusing a black slave for pleasure,
    her pleas, her hot tears, all fell on deaf ears,
    he went on and on, until he was full and couldn't go on,
    it was the end of a rush of adrenaline for him.
    But the beginning of an inexplicable trauma to her!
    ...when she managed to sit, she laid her head on her knees
    and kept asking, "who am I, what am I...?".

    She's the girl, mum warned me against,
    you know, bad girl who doesn't give a shit?
    kind of girl, who is not an heaven candidate,
    unapologetically living her life on her own terms.
    The girl with the beauty of the gods,
    men troop after her like their lives depend on her,
    she knows, she gat the body that kills,
    yet she flaunts it like, she's on a mission to kill,
    I mean, this girl dresses to kill.
    I won't lie, I already given her the licence to kill
    every bit of sense that remains in this head of mine,
    you asked why? well, she only gat eyes for me,
    yea, we both fell in that deep whole called love.
    Crazy shit, huh? Yea, I know...
    indeed, good boy fell for the bad girl,
    our unparallel line really turned to an intersection line.
    Who could have imagined!
    She got me hook on her love, like a drug addict.
    To be clear, I never want to be sober! Being this addict
    really does it for me, I tell no lies,
    maybe, good boy isn't a good boy after all,
    cos, good boy loves this bad girl's shits,
    crazy shits, huh?! Yea, I know too.

    For Nigerian youth all over the world, October 20th, 2021 has become a day like no other in the history of our beloved country Nigeria.

    365 days after, the problems have remained,
    like we never took to the street to voice out
    our displeasure of their misbehaviour and their
    wickedness against us the future of tomorrow.
    A year after, they are still denying an open secret
    known by everyone all over the world,
    they are the only one who can't see and hear what,
    the blind and deaf saw and heard.
    It's a painful reality that these people don't have
    a working heart and a conscience that's alive.
    No matter what they do, never will we forget
    20th of October, 2020: Lekki Toll-gate Massacre:
    Nigeria government killed young peaceful protesters.
    Even though they have not stopped the brutality, we are sure
    the sacrifice of our heroes past shall never be in vain.

    Choosing you is really easy,
    your touch in my life has made life easy,
    you came into my life, and laughter returned to me,
    peace also found her way back to me,
    from day one, you've gotten my attention
    like a soldier on the parade responding to attention!
    Not once, have you stop bursting my brain,
    I will be with you, come sun come rain
    cos it's you alone, my eyes see.
    Like the captain of the ship on sea,
    you are the captain of my heart,
    undoubtedly, you are the sweet melody of my heart.

    Dear fellow Nigerians,
    might seem as tho this country is
    not worthy of any celebration,
    our problems are far too numerous
    for any celebration to make sense.
    True! It all look gloomy,
    no light seems to be on the horizon.
    Still, we must be our own light,
    and give everything needed to shine it.
    Everything is available for us to ignite our light,
    God has blessed us tremendously,
    all that remain is our fight, our fight for this light.

    Dear fellow Nigerian believers,
    might seem as tho
    God has decided to pay a deaf ear
    to all our day and night prayers
    but remember the effectual fervent prayers
    of the righteous availeth much,
    it is impossible for God to deny His people their requests
    So don't give up, strengthen every feeble legs.

    Dear Nigerians,
    Happy Independence
    ...notwithstanding, our future is bright!
