My African Sister

Walking through the busy streets of San Francisco

Day and night toilering around

Coming and going these several season

Beads of sweat trickled down my face

Looking for someone like me.

Whites are all I see

Where art thou?

Night came creepy as hell

Never give up, keep moving

Took over my head

I lifted up my dazzled eyes

I found a black beauty like me

I found a girl with a fro.

Book Review: Dare to dream by Abiola Okunsanya.

Author: Abiola Okunsanya

Title: Dare to dream

ABOUT THE BOOK
We grew up in an environment that discouraged us to dream. In this
inspiring novel, we see how the life of Ezekiel; a boy with ridiculously big
dreams play out into adulthood.
Ezekiel came across times when he wanted to give up, times when he felt
life deliberately wanted to snuff itself out of him, but he already had a
dream, and he was not about to let anything stop him. Will Ezekiel succeed
at the end? Let the book answer!

REVIEW
Dare to dream is a great book. I love the way each chapters and characters was written with great care, The suspense filled till the end. I could relate to Ezekiel at many points in the book- his struggles with success and life in general. I am glad to say dare to dream is educating, life changing and inspiring like the author’s nickname Handzinspired. All in all, I pronounce dare to dream as a unique novel.

HELP HER

She smiles with shoulders high

Next minute, she is alone

“Everything is fine,” she tells you but you ignored the obvious streaks of tears.

Her fake smile was glaring

You knew she was hiding something

Why keep quiet?

Surrounded by friends, you laugh with your white teeth kissing the next glass.

She sit at home with knees hugged like a shield

One,two,three,four,five hours

You’re not back

She couldn’t take it anymore

She went out

Almost there!

Almost there!!

She saw your glorious face

All she could think of was how to met you

Your face turned into a mirror

She was happy

You’re happy

Mmph

She slipped and fell with a thump

You ignored her because of your friends

You joined the annoying laughter your friends made

You sipped your drinks like nothing happened

She stood up and made her way back home

A sprained ankle

A broken heart

She resumed her tears

You came back drunk and happy

She greeted you

You pushed her

She doesn’t exist

Light shone in the room

You could smell the awesome goodness of fried eggs

Your new name should be called moaner

Without a sorry

Without a Good morning

You preferred food to her

You cared about yourself

Like you have ever cared

Why stay with her?

Why don’t tell her about your non existing feeling?

Why can’t you help her?

She greeted you with a smile like nothing happened

She collected the food from you

With a smiley face, she set the table

But you’re so dumb to suspect

A table for two

A table of death

She couldn’t take it anymore

Why don’t we die together

Love in the grave would be so much fun than earth

Those were her thoughts

Dumb guy

Dumb guy

A plate of eggs took your life

I wish I cared and loved her

Your last words were said with a foamy drool.

Crush!!!

Who is a crush?

Who is your crush?

How do i know I am crushing on someone?

What are the types of crush?

All these questions will be answered below.

I can relate to these questions personally and I have come across a lot of people who ask those questions.

Today, I will be talking about types of crush.

1. Celebrity crush:

For a celeb crush, this is a type of crush that is socially acceptable to have thousands of his/her pictures on your phone. I feel celebrity crush are crushes that one is not dedicated to. It is very rare to find someone really dedicated to his/her celebrity crush. E.g; Brent Rivera is my celeb crush, I can’t be dedicated to him because I know he is someone I can never get. Why waste my time being dedicated to him?. Why don’t I try crushing on someone I can get?. Don’t get me wrong- it is also pretty cool to have celeb crush you’re dedicated to. You might end up lucky to get him/her -on rare cases though.

2. First crush:

This is someone who is probably your childhood friend who knows everything about you -you like each. Kind of a immature crush. It can also be someone you can’t remember their name – you just met him/her somewhere and couldn’t ignore the person’s look. It can be your first kiss in kindergarten or something like that.

3. Secret Crush:

This is a crush you can’t share with just anybody for reasons best known to you. It can be someone damaged or older. He/She can be your sibling’s friend or bestfriend’s enemy. It can be someone you won’t like to be seen around with – a socially awkward type of person compared to you. Whatever the reason may be it is someone you won’t be telling anyone anyhow.

I had this crush few years back. When I remember this, I wondered how I could even crush on someone like that. We were two different people. Okay!!!.. People says opposite attract but I guess the reverse is the case is the best word for us. Sometimes secret crush may end up being one’s true crush.

4: True love crush:

This is the crush that over shadows all other crushes. Trust me, when you have a true love crush. You’d wonder what you saw in the other crushes. It will put all other crushes to shame. It takes a long way to get a true love crush -just like driving on a road full of pot holes. It is way harder than that for those who can relate to this.

CONCLUSION

Crushes are one of the most important or common feature of a human life. It is rare to find a human who has never had a thing for something or someone. I have listed the few I am familiar with above. There are lots of types of crush but these are the basic and relatable ones so far. I hope I did a great job in this.
