In the eye of the mind

She says a dance plus a step
Makes up to two steps
Is Pythagoras aware?
Did you slurp off the vine?
Is that why your eyes are red?
Thou old drunk lady!

Down the broad long road
She walks in zig-zag steps
On her head rests her load
Paying imaginary debts
Stable as change
On every table matter sits change
Yet unstable as water
Eyes stare in the mirror
Your face is all it sees
O careless traveller!

When your eyes are open
Sights stick to your breasts
Like cotton stuck to glue
Like sap to a gmelina tree
Will you from what you see set your heart free?

A matrix of thoughts
Electroplated smiles
Embellished frowns
Interconnected psychic fibres
Excreting emotions in fluid and pulp
A thunderstorm
A ravaging storm

Stick your eyes on my back
Against your back, my sword makes a barricade
Order and pressure me to be lame
Your long rolled-up tongue, i will tame

I have seen you
When the tempest does not rage
O disappearing captive of my rib cage
I feel you in my chest
Or do you live in my head?
You were made for me
Unfamiliar companion! Always eat the bread of rest.

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…


Chioma was that child that will send you hiding your clothes and wrappers far away from her reach for the fear that she will tear them in shreds out of the zeal of designing and making clothes. Her first skirt was made at the age of twelve. 
"Nobody taught me to sew, nobody close to me sews, I didn't even know it was a 6 pieces skirt I sewed till I finally went to a fashion school," She says with an air of humour. 

"I also made bags and a pair of slippers from an old Jean material that happened to be my old skirt. My mum marveled at the thought of Jean slippers then but now we see Jean slippers everywhere." She continues. 
Chioma Vanessa who prefers to go by the alias 'God's favourite daughter' is a graduate of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, an entrepreneur and the present CEO of Nessa Design and Stitches (NDS). A young Fashion and Designing outfit that not only makes great outfits but also runs mini fashion tutorials.

I watched Fisayo click away on his camera between flashes of light. It was at an event about promoting Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

I checked some boxes after our interaction. He is industrious, a supporter of social good and very efficient. Call me a stalker of amazing young people and you won't be far from the truth.
