Sometimes it takes a fine boy’s stare, other times an open admiration from a girl,
A 5k make-up item, a revealing dress in dollars, heels in pounds, hair from another continent, likes in zeros, whistles and party-invites to make you feel beautiful.
But beyond that, when the lights go dim, when the show is over, when everyone leaves and you are all that remains, Without the weave, without the body enhancers and the makeup, then you crack up over the genuine moments you have made;
The way you walk, the way you talk, the way you just cannot pronounce a word,
The way you smile, your silly face in a selfie.

Two hours later, I heard Maami's voice. I ran towards her… Continue reading I was once a racist
Not a purple tale
Not a tiny fairy
Not a plausible reason
For why i fell…
Couldn’t let you know
That you were my Romeo
Enveloped by the fear
That I was far from Juliet
With no missing glass slipper
Still I longed to be your Cinderella…
It’s a little too soon
But I want my prettier little versions
To have your endless love for the Saviour
And definitely that unique assiduity
Yes, I don’t think you’re handsome
Cos to me, you’re prettier than beautiful…
Still find it hard to believe
That the paranoia was contemporaneous
That weird moment
My fairy godmother must have been lurking
I had never seen you so sure
Yet, I had never seen you so shy
You tried to pass a message
Yet, every statement you obfuscated
After all your babblings
Not using the regular three words
You said five and a half ginormous magical…
